The upcoming seventh season of Lifetime’s Project Runway, set to premier Jan. 14 (10 p.m. EST), will once again include a number of Celebrity guest judges.
Nicole Richie will serve as the first guest judge on the season premiere of the design competition. “Nicole is a fabulous guest judge,” saidProject Runway executive producer Sara Rea. “She has strong opinions and gives clear and specific constructive criticism to the designers. Also, she isn’t afraid to disagree with the other judges.”
Nicole, who currently has her own fashion line and a line of jewelry, taped the premiere episode last summer before giving birth to her son Sparrow in September.
Celebrity guest judges from last season included Christina Aguilera, Rebecca Romijn, Eva Longoria Parker, Lindsay Lohan and Cindy Crawford.
The finale of MTV’s fashion reality show – Styl’d aired last night with Brett Nelson being declared the winner. The Kansas city born native beat out runner up Gary Samuelian to take home the grand prize.
The finale episode began with the immediate firing of Janna, whom according to Jen Rade, just didn’t have what it takes to become a stylist. Next to go was Cody who’s weakness was not being able to style women as well as he did men’s styling.
The final 3 came down to Brett, Gary and Tara. The judges including Julie Weiss, Jen Rade and Eric Archibald ultimately decided that Tara was not right for the job due to her attitude problem. This left Brett and Gary to battle it out for the chance to sign a contract with the Margaret Maldonado Agency styling agency.
The judges felt Brett was the better man for the job and he was offered the MMA styling contract. No word yet on whether or not the show will be back for a second season.
I was actually a big fan of this show and was rooting for Gary to win. I felt he was right up there with Brett, and was actually surprised the judges would feel more comfortable sending Brett out on a job over Gary.

A close friend of Hailey Glassman is alleging that the former girlfriend of Jon Gosselin is very scared of him. This comes after Hailey accused Jon of attacking her by pushing her up against a wall in a jealous rage.
Things recently got worse for Jon & Hailey’s relationship with Hailey filing a harassment complaint against Jon with the NYPD on December 20, 2009, and with Jon accusing Hailey of being the person who ransacked and robbed their NY apartment.
Mandy Sassano, a “concerned friend” of Hailey’s told RadarOnline: “The situation has gotten totally out of hand and Hailey is now very scared of Jon Gosselin – she just wants him to leave her alone.” Mandy continues, “She told me that the attack story is true and that he pinned her to the wall of their apartment after he got into a jealous rage when she was photographed with [boxing promoter] Damon Feldman.”
Mandy also believes Hailey is not capable of destroying an apartment as claimed by Jon. “Anybody that knows Hailey will tell you that she is not capable of trashing the apartment that they used to share – it’s just not her style.”
According to Mandy, Hailey just wants to move on with her life, but Jon won’t let her. “Apparently, he has a way of finding out where she is through his GPS system and that really freaks her out – it’s time for him to back-off because her friends and family are worried and upset now.”
Mandy also confirmed that Jon did indeed borrow a large amount of money from Hailey. “She claims that she gave him an $80,000 loan to re-pay money back into his joint bank account with his wife after he pleaded with Hailey that he could not pay the money and that he feared he might lose his kids as a result.”
“I remember one occasion when we were out for a meal with Jon and Hailey and a few other people and he actually had the nerve to use one of Kate’s credit cards to pay for the four of us – that’s the type of person he is,” concluded Mandy.

Could the he said-she said saga involving Hailey Glassman and Jon Gosselin be coming to an end? That answer is yes according to RadarOnline, who is reporting a sit down is in the works for the two idiots to sit with their attorneys and work out their issues.
Those issues include Jon accusing Hailey of ransacking and robbing their NYC apartment, and Hailey accusing Jon of physically attacking her by pushing her against a wall.
After days of attacking each other in the media, it seems both parties are ready to call a truce. Hailey’s attorney Stephanie Ovadia told Radar exclusively: “Hailey, Jon myself and Mr. Heller (Jon’s attorney, Mark Heller) have decided to privately sit down at the table and discuss the matter. We are going to discuss a resolution.”
Jon’s attorney confirmed to RadarOnline as well that a meeting will be taking place soon. People magazine is also reporting that
according to a source, “Jon is in New York and is speaking to Hailey. They’re trying to come to a resolution.”
We saw this story coming from a mile away the minute it was reported that one of Hailey Glassman’sattorneys specialized in domestic violence cases. Well the NYPost is now reporting thatJon Gosselin allegedly slammed his former girlfriend Hailey against the wall of their Manhattan apartment after he saw a photo of her kissing her new beau “Celebrity Boxing” promoter Damon Feldman.
“That picture started the whole thing, a picture of her kissing another man,” Hailey a source told The Post. According to the NYPost, Hailey filed a harassment complaint with the NYPD, saying “she was pushed against [a] wall” on Dec. 20 and verbally abused by Jon. The cops are currently investigating the charge.
Jon’s lawyer is however denying Hailey’s claims of abuse. “Jon is a lover, not a fighter,” said Mark Heller. “He’s been rumored to steal a kiss here and there, but he has never been accused of landing a sucker punch.”
Jon’s Lawyer also tells RadarOnline that Hailey is making up her claims of abuse simply as retaliation against Jon’s claims. “Her legal people obviously advised her to put this out there,” Heller tells Radar. “Often times when you have a domestic situation and one of the parties goes down to a police precinct and makes a complaint its not uncommon that the other party is urged to make a counter claim. So the one party will have a bargaining chip, ‘you withdraw your claim I will withdraw my claim’
According to Heller, Jon called the cops on December 26th after noticing his apartment has been ransacked and robbed, and Hailey waited until a week after the alleged Dec. 20th incident to file her complaint with the police. Heller believes Hailey filed her complaint because all signs are pointing to her being the culprit in the Jon Gosselin apartment saga.

It seems almost everyone nowadays, including Alyssa Milano & New Jersey lawmakers, are not fans of MTV’s hit reality show – Jersey Shore. The town in which the show was filmed is now attempting to distance itself from the controversial show.
The Borough of Seaside Heights — the New Jersey beach town that’s home to the show — released a statement on Monday saying it “did not solicit, promote or participate in the filming” of the show. The town did however issue a permit allowing the production company to film, but says those permits are issued routinely.
The town also insists the show doesn’t reflect the majority of its visitors.
In other news, it seems controversy sells as ratings for Jersey Shore continue to soar each week. According to TVGuide, ratings for the MTV series increased to 2.5 million viewers for the December 17th episode. In the adults ages 18-49 demo, the show rose 27 percent to a 1.4 rating. Jersey Shore also earned a 2.2 rating among women ages 18-34.
This is in comparison to the 1.3 million viewers the show debuted to on December 4th.
