So yesterday, we started seeing for the first time the beginnings of Abby’s apology tour. She gave a brief statement to a magazine yesterday where she said she’s not a bully, just a tough coach. I mainly agree with that and have a lot less issues with Abby’s aggressive personality than most of you. I do think this season, Abby has become unhinged over this whole bankruptcy fraud issue. It’s a major deal. Once the FEDS bring charges, it’s basically plea deal time where you hire the best lawyer you can afford to shorten your sentence and get you in a nice prison camp with pretty uniforms and a good track for walks.
Almost no one saw her attempt t spin things positively yesterday but a whole lot of people know about the stunt she pulled on her Instagram. Apparently, Abby called Pizza Hut near her California house and asked about the five dollar special. Times must be hard, or else she was at the studio trying to feed a lot of kids. The idiot on the phone didn’t know what she was talking about and so she went off on him and he hung up on her. So Abby, who is not a bully, we know this because she told us yesterday, posts the store’s phone number and has all of her millions of followers call and harass the idiot whose life is already hard enough because his job is answering the phones at Pizza Hut. This wound up on TMZ which let a lot of people know she is a bully.
I feel like it’s been weeks since we saw Project Runway Jr. Did they take some time off? Tonight, it’s the first team challenge. This should be exciting and full of drama and tears. Wait? Androgynous kid, Matt is 17? Oh the Zachary kid who won last week is already trash talking Victoria. I’m not sure what she made last week, or who she is really but this should be fun.
Wow, I didn’t even know they sold Simplicity Patterns anymore. Jaysus, Zachary is obnoxious. Why isn’t Tim letting everyone go to Mood instead of just two kids from each team. I hope Samantha’s team kills Zachary’s team.
I love how Tim uses so many words these kids don’t know in his feedback. Tim really hates Sam’s team’s looks. For one thing they picked the 60s and then picked taupe fabric! Where is all the psychedelic print? I think I actually heard one of them say “no prints” when they were planning the trip to Mood. No prints is fine for the 1940s but NOT for the 1960s! Three people on Sam’s team decide to start completely over AGAIN after Tim’s critique. He likes the one sort of fuschia colored fabric. There is fabric available in the studio and there is this fushia print hanging on the wall that would work as part of collection. Why don’t they pick that? WHY?
Zachary’s stupid face team is already celebrating. But wait! Sam’s team suddenly gets themselves together. Continue reading
Merlines 3D avant garde look
I have been dying to recap the most recent episode of Project Runway but sadly real life drama keeps interfering. I can’t wait to see what happens this week. Despite the weakest group of designers ever, I still love this show. Plus I want to see if Tim saves Swapnil and if anyone makes Tim Gunn say more bad words!
Dear God, Zoe what’s her faces show is still airing on the front of this recording. Since I have to tape in the middle of the night, I was able to add five minutes to the end this time so um, YAY! The recap of last week is basically who won, who lost and Tim Gunn cussing out Swapnil!
We start in the apartments and not at Swapnil’s auffing so it is official he is gone. My homeboy, Edmond is the last man standing. This bodes well for him making final three because I doubt they will send three females to the finale. Plus, I want him to win. Kelly seems over confident, and who the hell expected Merline to get this far?
The challenge is inspired by bridges. There are three choices. Who the hell really cares what bridge they get? Fashion based on a bridge could be any fucking bridge. And to make matters worse, they have to use 3d printing. It’s an avant garde challenge. I could be any less interested. The winner gets a 3d Printer. Whoop dee doo. Everyone seems to be going literal except homeboy who may get called out for seemingly doing what he wants and adding some sort of bridge stuff as sort of an after thought. Ashley is going to do pants! Thank God no circle skirt from her this week. She could win. Continue reading
I had a very busy day today and despite waking up to a mailbox full of things to write about, I haven’t had much time today. I’ve got some health issues to deal with and some insurance people to wrestle with so I’m going to be away from my keyboard a good bit. But enough about me, we have another reality star headed toward Camp Cupcake! Dance Mom’s matriarch, Abby Lee Miller has been busted by the Feds for pretty much the same thing the Giudices are doing time for. Lying to the bankruptcy court!
SEE ABBY LEE MILLERS NUMEROUS MELTDOWNS FROM LAST SEASON HERE!
Did Abby Lee Miller learn nothing from Teresa Giudice?! Today, Abby was charged by the feds with twenty counts of bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations Continue reading
Welp, my recording is starting with a full minute of Rachel Zoe, and I could not even make it through that. More importantly, I probably won’t get to see who wins at the end of this. Why can’t networks start and end on time and put their commercials in the last three minutes?! UGH!
The models this week will be ladies from the filming crew. This should be Ashley’s challenge. Ashley is used to designing for normal sized women.
There was not much drama in the sewing room until the second day when Tim shows up to do his critique and says that they will be fitting their models at the same time. I can already tell Swapnil has not much if anything to fit. He starts with Kelly. Her model lives in overalls. So she gives her more overall. WTF? Sure they are leather but the fit is already and issue. Candice has a decent dress on her dress form, but Tim says she has “taken away all your spice and given us a bowl of oatmeal.” I like the oatmeal. That said, it’s a little black dress. When you have a dark skinned model, you can really wow the runway with bold bright colors. She is missing an opportunity. Okay, when the model tried on the dress, it was bad. Candice is designing for herself and not the model. Merline’s model hates Merline. Or more specifically her big shoulder stuff. So , Merline gives her big shoulders. Ashley’s client is surprisingly unhappy. How can Ashley not know bigger women like to cover their upper arms? Edmond struggles to please his client as well. Continue reading
The Dance Moms reunion did not tape for me, so I am going to recap while watching on demand. This means no real ability to pause without going through all sorts of di-dos. So I’m gonna assume you saw it and hit the highlights.
Why do they think this is the most controversial season in the history of Dance Moms? Just because Nationals was a bust? Abby is texting everyone telling them not to show up to the reunion. But everyone is already there. Except for Abby. Abby goes straight to the set with a folder of evidence that she has no problem hiding under her ample bum.
Oh, that annoying host guy is the executive producer. That means he is the enemy of Abby who got a very negative edit this season. Abby is asked what she thought about the Nationals results and she brings out a piece of paper from her folder that just says FIXED! Abby is refusing to speak. Holly says that it is unfair to say the competition was fixed. Holly said that Abby and Melissa looked like sore losers by walking out. The host points out that Abby is friends with the owner of the competition. Continue reading
