Hello, All! This is CJ Bomb and I’ll be recapping Project Runway Season 15. I have watched every single season of Project Runway since it’s inception, and while I do think that the early years on Bravo were superior, as long as Tim Gunn is gracing this show with his presence, I will be faithfully glued to the screen. No matter how many times I want to kick it. I hope you will join in the discussions here at Tamara Tattles!
The Intro Party
Tasha Henderson: Love her immediately. She seems mellow and mature. She says she designs for an urban tomboy. They show pictures of her work and it’s cool. Ian Hargrove: Annoyed by him immediately. “I don’t make wearable art.” he sniffs. While I might admire this as there are so many contestants who think everything they make is art- this comes off as cocky somehow. If he makes it through the first round he’s my first pick for the ass. Brik Allen: from Baton Rouge. Polite. Father told him to say yes ma’am no ma’am, yes sir no sir, and win the Goddamn thing! He also has long flowy locks. I predict a man-bun.
Roberi Parra: from Venezuela. Sort of looks like a Latin Christian Siriano. Went to St. Martins. Erin Robertson: Thinks she’s smart- seems to me that she will be the girl who bites off more than she can chew and panics. Mah Jing Wong: In it for his family. Dexter Simmons: Wild card. Hopefully not the overly bitchy guy. He was in school to be a herpetologist so- ok I’m intrigued. Jenni Reccetti: Her laugh almost broke my TV. Cause I almost kicked it.
Alex Snyder: self- styled Tim Gunn and wise. Willing to help because it is good Karma. Linda Marcus: Token old person who wants to show these whippersnappers a thing or two! (I’m closer to her age than the rest of the contestants, so I can say this) Cornelius Ortiz: went to school with Nathalia. Might be bitchy. Nathalia JMag: went to school with Cornelius. Hustler. Laurence Basse: Stunning ex-model who thinks her experience will help her in the competition.
Kimber Richardson was there. Rik Villa, I got nothing in my notes. Sarah Donofrio, From Portland? In Project Runway world if you are barely featured in the episode that generally means you are safe. So, my apologies to those last three designers. I am sure you are fascinating people, but thank your lucky stars I have nothing to write about you this week. Continue reading
EDITED TO ADD: OOPS I AM SO UNPLUGGED I’VE FORGOTTEN MY SCHEDULE. IT’S RHOOC I won’t be recapping tonight. Hang on and I’ll put up a post for that show. THEN back to unplugged.
Hey guys, I am going to remain mostly unplugged again tonight and will not be recapping the
RHONY RHOOC live at 9. I may or may not feel like doing it at 11:30 in time for the morning crew tomorrow. Until then… you guys have a place to comment here. Meanwhile, let’s look back at last week’s episode through the bleary eyes of Ramona. Bethenny is a very strong woman. The things she has been going through have been very hard on her emotionally. At times Bethenny cries at a drop of the hat due to all the stress she’s under. I know the feeling as finalizing my divorce has been taking a toll on me emotionally. This is the reason I haven’t written a blog in a while. I appreciate everyone’s continued support and understanding. It means so much to me. I actually hadn’t noticed your absence. Continue reading
Lots of discussion about Bethenny being “homeless.” Ramona looks good.
They showed a clip of Kim reading a text from Lisa Rinna that really didn’t say anything worse than she has already said. There is an ominious “You better be careful or I will fuck you up! Stop telling lies.”
There is a crazy clip from next week when Bethenny and Ramona are talking outside with a white picket fence between them. Ramona is clearly off her meds and treating Bethenny like she is the crazy one. It looks fantastic!
Andy talks to Ramona about her behavior on the reunion. Ramona says she was very offensive. Andy accurately corrects her saying she was defensive. Ramona wrongly corrects Andy and incorrectly defines both defensive and offensive. Andy just smiles and nods and says “Oh sweetie” quietly inside his head. A couple of people in the clubhouse are laughing loud. Andy forges ahead saying she would not answer any of his questions about Mario and as stonewalling him. Continue reading
UPDATED: The New York Post is now reporting that Ramona filed for divorce on Tuesday. Ramona has confirmed the divorce on twitter with the usual “privacy during this difficult time….blah, blah, blah…for the children..blah..” Sources for Tamaratattles tell us that Ramona has locked herself in her bedroom with a case of Pinot Grigio. Okay, we’re guessing on that last part. Condolences, or whatever, Ramona.
Ramona and Mario Singer have been on the rocks for ages and Ramona has stopped trying to deny it every time she leaves the house. Mario has been suspected of fooling around behind Ramona’s back for quite some time now. But last fall, he was seen in the Hamptons canoodling with one particular young socialite on a regular basis. Since that time Mario has been staying at their house in the Hamptons and Ramona has been staying in the apartment in NYC filming housewives. Things were strained but civil.
Until last Friday. Page Six is reporting that Ramona decided to head to the Hamptons for the weekend and arrived to find Mario and the newer, younger replacement chick already there. Continue reading
Remember on one of those Real Housewives of New York vacations from hell a few seasons back where they saw some sort of fortune teller? I think it was in Morocco because I remember Luann translating it for Ramona because it was in French. The fortune teller lady told Ramona that her husband was cheating. Luann translated it as Mario having another woman in his life. Well, if it wasn’t true then, it seems even more likely now. Continue reading
WordPress seems to have eaten my first paragraph. I’m sure it wasn’t important. Let’s just dive in. Luann and Jacques watched the pirate episode together! I’d love to have been a fly on that wall. But before we can get the dirt on that off camera event, Andy wants to stir the pot. So he reminds Ramona that she made a lot of comments about Luann being a girl who likes to party. Ramona says something that seemed innocent enough,”Luann loves her men and she can’t keep her hands off them. And you can take that however you want. That’s all I’ll say.” But this doesn’t sit well with the Countess (silent o). Luann sort of loses her cool and wants to know what Ramona is insinuating. Luann begins to strongly imply that she has all kinds of dirt on what Ramonja got up to on their nights out in St. Barths and that Ramona doesn’t want to go there. Luann tells Ramona, “You’re no goodie two shoes!” Ramona makes some out of the blue remark about never having been in an open relationship like Luann (And Carole, but she doesn’t mention Carole..yet). Luann is hurt by the comment and wants to know why Ramona is out for blood. Luann made a mistake and it was hard for her and Jacques to get past. I’m bored with this topic. Luann polished the pirate’s peg leg. Jacques still in the picture according to Luann. Andy invited Jacques to the reunion and he declined. That seems odd for someone who likes the camera as much as Jacques Move along, Andy. Continue reading
