Dear Project Runway: I Miss You

In case you Project Runway fans have been wondering why we have not seen our beloved Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn in the 6th installment of the show that has brought us Santino Rice and Christian Soriano, I give you a post.

This show has been in a legal limbo for quite some time now (since last Spring!). Producer Harvey Weinstein tried to move this Bravo series to Lifetime, a move the owner of Bravo (NBC Universal) didn't like. Weinstein sued back and then Lifetime decided to sue everyone for s**ts and giggles. Well while everyone is sue happy, Klum, Season 6 designers and the viewing public are enraged.

All episodes of this missing series have been shot in Los Angeles and recorded. And as most of you probably know, New York's Fashion Week went off in late February (unlike Runway) on schedule. The three Season 6 finalists did show their collections . . . whether we will be finding out who these anonymous designers are is yet to be seen. Now I've gotta wonder, when and if we ever do see the lost installment, will the fashions still be (as every AI judge likes to say) "current"?

Well as Heidi says, "in fashion, you're either in or you're out." Oh, I hope this beloved show of mine is not out. I am not ready to say Auf Wiedersehen to it any time soon.

Please, Mr. Weinstein. End this legal mumbo jumbo and just give me my Runway back!!

With love,

American Idol Results: Adam Lambert PERFORMS!!! Oh yeah, and There Was a Double Elimination.

Okay, guys, here we go with the Idol results.  Am I the only one who is sick of these results show intro package fake-outs?  You know, wherein they try and make us believe like there were Holyfield vocal TKOs last night?  (Cut to a judge exclamatory:  "Yo, those vocals were hot!!"  Then cut to Andrew Garcia holding a mic that looks as if it just turned gold right before our very eyes.)  Um, am I living in some crazy Harry Potter land?  Because I'm pretty sure this does not accurately reflect what went down on performance night at all.  But then again, I guess if they show what really went down, it would not pump me, the viewer, up.  Unlike those high voltage group sings ... those aren't watered down or lip sunk at all.  Oh what's that?!  Ms. Sleepy Weird-Eyed Gal Herself, Brooke White, and some dude I've never heard of are set to sing tonight?!!!  Well somebody better hold me back! 

Okay okay.  Who peed in my Fruity Pepples, right?  I am excited to see Adam …

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

American Idol: R & B Night ... What a Difference an Usher Makes!

Well three cheers for Usher, is alls I got to say about last night's American Idol, R & B Night. If only all of them would have heeded the advice of the sunglassed one, it may have been a perfect night. But alas, Tim Urban remains unchanged, and so I'll settle for a vastly improved night instead.
Usher on Lee: Believe in Yourself. Although he may think he still belongs in the paint shop, Lee Dewyze really has a shot at winning this whole shin dig. Oh, simply the song title alone "Treat Her Like a Lady" mixed in with that gritty voice = one hot and bothered Elizabeth. You can treat me like a lady, Lee. Any ol' time. (Okay, sorry if just made anyone feel uncomfortable there.) Usher and I just ask one thing of you: Believe in yourself! Simon told you this may be the night your life changes forever, yet I still think you will come out next week with the ever present look of fear in those glistening baby blues. Not to mention, your desire to eat your guitar pick ri…
