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: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

Idol: I-Tune Down Loads Equals Big Let Down

Well, as speculated, it was the Top I-Tunes Downloads theme on Idol tonight, allowing for something more 'current.' But the whole night, with a few exceptions, proved to be a big let down.
Let Down #1:Allison's outfit and Edward Scissorhands' hairdo. Even Randy couldn't wait to get through the positive comments to ask, "What is up with the outfit?!" We all know Allison's voice is amazing, so I have to focus on the question that still begs to be answered: Just what has the 'Glam Squad' done to her? Please. De-glam my Allison at once and give her back to me a-la 'Alone' days! But they won't do this, and you know why? Because it wouldn't be right if we had an unknown early front runner who didn't have the help of a producer pimp-out be allowed to shine. Oh no. We have to allow Simon tell her that she 'shouted the song'! WTF?!! Chopped locks + Fourth Slot + Insane Critiques + Mustache Doodles = SABOTAGE!
Let Down #2:Matt …

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 "…
