In other bits and pieces of RHOM news the show is already being called out by writers for the Miami Herald as being scripted to the point of setting a new real show scripting standard for Bravo. Bravo is always trying to take it to the next level of scripted reality. Bravo had a hard time finding Miami “socialites” willing to do the show this season but Elsa Patton is back and causing a ruckus so Andy Cohen is happy. And really, isn’t that all that matters?
Tonight on Project Runway All Stars, once again, Micheal and April are making the same dress. I actually liked Michael’s mop head dress better than April’s mop head dress last week but Michael turtles and switches to a black jersey material. Michael needs a Stuart Smalley tape. He’s good enough, he’s smart enough and gosh darnit, I like him. April decides to dye the fabric that just seconds ago she said was the perfect oxblood color she was hoping to find. While she is dying the fabric, in a bucket like one would tie-dye a t-shirt she mutters something about blood. She’s kind of creepy.
Tabatha Coffey, I mean Joanna Coles, shows up in the workroom and suggests Michael add some cups in the bust of his dress. Jorrell worries about Michael’s model having a nipslip at the Opera. Michael doesn’t listen to Joanna. Anthony is making a bridal gown. When Joanna points out he is making a bridal gown he claims that brides don’t wear low cut gowns. Anthony isn’t listening to Joanna either. Apparently, even though Michael lives in Atlanta, he was not invited to Kim Zolciak’s wedding. Kenley’s dress would be great for Minnie Mouse, if Minnie Mouse was going to the Opera. I am waiting to see if she puts a gigantic polka dot bow in her model’s hair. The workroom scenes this year are just not “making it work”. I blame Joanna for this. She’s not a designer or a design instructor and she seems to just be concerned with how the dress will photographer. Why is no one crying in the workroom? Were are the disasters that threaten to keep a designer from sending anything down the runway? Why are there no broken sewing machines and stolen forms? I want to see more drama.
Kenley’s dress wasn’t as bad as I thought but it was a still mass of cotton candy and not an opera dress. Sweet P’s model looks like a Mexican Pinata. Jerrel made a maternity gown. So did Kara. That is three dresses so far that have the tit-high waistline with a voluminous bottom. WTF? Anthoy’s white dress came out more Grecian than bridal so he should land safely in the middle again. Michael’s black jersey dress was fabulous and should be the winner.
Wow, Anthony’s dress makes top three. I liked it but not as much as the judges. April’s bloody dress is in the bottom three. Sweet P is in the bottom again. The judges call her dress a dirndl like you might wear to an Oktoberfest not the opera. The voluminous bottom of her dress to Sweet P makes it a ball gown. They love Austin Scarlett. I personally don’t think his dress is anything awesome. Kara’s dress is in the bottom despite the fact that it has pockets. Seriously, the judges acted like the pockets made the dress acceptable. Michael’s dress is in the top three despite his lack of cups in the dress. None of the designers seemed concerned with the nipslip potential.
In the end, Scarlett Austin wins and Sweet P goes home. Neither came as a big surprise. I feel like Michael was robbed. Frankly, I feel like we were all robbed. It’s as if they are not showing us the drama this season. I can’t imagine that many designers in one workroom without a ton of fighting and tears. Who the hell is editing this show?
