Finale Time! Project Runway has finally come to an end. And I have to say; I may seriously be done with this series following last night’s results. I won’t give anymore away for those who have not yet watched (or Googled).
It’s two-days before fashion week and everyone is in a tizzy! Tim Gunn greets the designers in the workroom and announces he is furious at the crack-smocking judges’ critiques of the mini collections. He offers the real final three props and calls the judges out on their cray-cray; although did I hear him say he loved Eyebrows’ Grecian catsuit?! I think he just said that to be nice and to point out clearly and emphatically that little miss Anya had no business taking her messy used “intimate tapes” sheets to fashion week. In fact he told her as much! That’s the spirit, Tim. The old Tim we know and love! Tim announces a surprise gift! An additional $500 to spend at Piperline Mood to buy whatever they want!
Anya is over-whelmed by her lack of a collection and starts to panic. Viktor announces he will be re-making his fabulous grey gown?! At Mood, Viktor demonstrates he has been spending too much time with Eyebrows as he gravitates towards sheer – and not just sheer, cheetah print sheer!

It’s the marriage that was never meant to be! You know the old saying: “If you marry for money, you will earn every penny” and I’m afraid that’s just the case with poor old Kim Kardashian and her hubby for the minuteKris Humphries-Kardashian!
A new report states that Kimmie settled for Kris as her second or third choice as she was simply eager to date a starring basketball player – any at all. Desperate, much Kimster? Or was E! pushing another Kardashian-Basketball love story?
An insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment that E! and Kim “were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and the Knicks were their first choice.” But I thought this was a reality show? #sarcasm.
Kimmie’s initial pick was much younger much richer basketball player, Danilo Gallinari! The New York Knicks were apparently approached by representative of E! to see if Danilo, 22, would have an interest in earning a little extra dough dating Kimmie for a chance at a little C-List fame on reality TV!
“Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show,” an insider explains. Apparently the network didn’t want to take no for an answer and tried to convince the poor Danilo that “it would be great for his career.” Wisely he turned them down – either he or his handlers are smart cookies!
Well almost immediately after Danillo ran screaming back to Italy (where coincidentally Kim honeymooned), Kimmie was latched onto another much younger man – her current hubster, Kris, then of the New Jersey Nets. The Nets wouldn’t say if the network begged them to loan them some eligible menz so Kimmie didn’t look a desperate spinster on national television. Drat.
E! is also not commenting on this story because, naturally, it’s complete and utter BS. Sure it is. Kim claims she met Kris courtside after seeing him play and a friend introduced him.
Whatever the case, Kris may have had enough of his marriage of convenience and its demanding ways! Life & Style is reporting that Kris is over the constant camera crews invading his marriage and that being filmed 24/7 makes him uncomfortable. So much so that he is threatening not to film for upcoming seasons of Kim’s zillion horrible TV shows, telling her: “‘I’ll only be your little TV husband for a few more weeks.”
“Kris wants out of filming,” an insider reports. “They’ve had no time without a camera. He knows he signed up for this, but I think it’s weighed on him.” Especially since that Kardashian money is slow to trickle in! “Kris makes only about $20,000 per episode,” the insider reveals. “He wants more to make it worthwhile!” Of course, it’s all about the money with this crew! I guess that is pretty much the only redeeming benefit to being a Kardashian accoutrement!
Apparently Kris isn’t afraid to challenge his much more famous wife and “is really the only person who stands up to her,”
“He says no when everyone else says yes,” a friend reveals. “I think secretly it challenges her and turns her on. No one says no to her except Kris. It frustrates her, but it ignites her.” Um… yuck. And I don’t believe you.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE RUMORS THAT KIM AND E! WERE SCANNING THE NBA CIRCUIT FOR POTENTIAL MATES? OR DOES KIM REALLY LOVE KRIS? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL LAST OR ARE THEY ON THEIR WAY TO DIVORCE COURT?
A new report has experts and physicians calling QuickTrim “dangerous and ineffective”! Both Kim and Khloe endorse the product and have been featured in its ads. In fact, during an episode of Khloe & Lamar, pimpmomager Kris Jenner was heard yelling at Khloe that she would lose the endorsement for being too fat! Kim has claimed to have lost around 15lbs using the supplements and credited the products for helping her lose weight before her made-for-TV wedding.
Maybe Khloe knew something the rest of us didn’t as the report claims QuickTrim is hazardous to your health! “I don’t think anyone should take these products,” Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman warns in an interview for US News & World Report.
Dr. Fugh-Berman, a physician and associate professor at Georgetown University Medical Center, along with registered dietitian Keri Gans decided to review three QuickTrim products and found that these supplements “contain powerful stimulants, laxatives, and diuretics that could cause abdominal pains, cramping and even kidney failure.”
Additionally they discovered that the QuickTrim products contained “large amounts of caffeine” which the company is not disclosing! “It irritates me that they’re not saying how much caffeine is in these pills,” Dr. Fugh-Berman relayed. “Too much caffeine can make you jittery and increase your blood pressure and pulse.”
“If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks coffee, that’s not good; you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmias,” she cautions.
Registered dietitian Heather Mangeiri, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association also echos those warnings and calls the pills ineffective! “My suggestion is to leave them on the shelf,” she advises.”Dietary supplements like these aren’t regulated by the [Food and Drug Administration], and many of the ingredients haven’t been shown to be effective.”
No statements have been made from QuickTrim or the Kardashian family regarding these findings.
In other Kardashian overdose news – the family is opening a new boutique. Yes – another one. “We are so excited to announce that our lifestyle boutique, Kardashian Khaos, is opening on November 1 in The Mirage, Las Vegas!!” Kim announced on her website this week. I love the name – sooo original!
“The store will feature so many amazing products including all the products that we own, represent, market and endorse, and some exclusive Las Vegas souvenir items,” Kim enthuses. Do you think they’ll be selling QuickTrim there? Including a very special product – sit down for this – a Kardashian TATTOO!!!! Oh NO!
“Never in my life did I think I would be made into a temporary tattoo,” desperate for attention and money-hungry mom, Kris wrote on her blog this week. “But never say never, right?! LOL.”
The Kardashians aren’t stopping there either – the family filed multiple U.S. Patent and Trademark documents for “Kardashian Kollection Home,” which may include “towels, bath mats, bedding as well as kitchen utensils, picture frames, and beer mugs.” Yes – because they have such stellar decorating tastes we all want our homes to look that tacky great.

THOUGHTS ON THE DANGEROUS FINDINGS RELATED TO QUICKTRIM PRODUCTS? DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIANS KNEW THE PRODUCTS WERE DANGEROUS? ARE YOU AS SHOCKED AS I AM THAT A KARDASHIAN TEMPORARY TATTOO WILL BE ON THE MARKET SOON?
Patti Sanger has emerged from hiding and is back to insulting people giving advice. In a new interview, the Millionaire Matchmakertalks her professional life, matchmaking, and how her reality show isn’t all that real.
“I was always a matchmaker in my personal life and realized there was a lot of money to be made doing it,” Patti tells TheFashionSpot blog of her roots growing up in NYC before moving to Miami and then LA where she became the Director of Marketing at the now defunct on-line dating site, Great Expectations.
Patti decided to branch out and started her own matchmaking service, which as we know is called Millionaire’s Club International, which grew into an international company with over 30 employees – which I guess implies she had some successful matches somewhere. From there Patti sparked the attention of Bravo and a reality television show was born!
“These days, I’m taking on less clients, but making more money,” she reveals on the state of her company. And she also confirms what I’ve always believed to be true! The clients we see her matching up on reality TV are definitely not her clients in real life! “My clients would NEVER go on the show,” Patti emphasizes. “They’re more discreet, living in places like Aspen and Monaco and want to remain private.” Imagine, reality TV setting up scenarios and changing reality! Poor Bravo, nobody is singing them praises these days!
Talking the difference between matching women up coast-to-coast, Patti declares: “New York women are picky, bitter, and don’t even try. Get a blow out, put on some makeup, and wear a dress!” she demands. “New York girls are smart in business, dumb in love; LA girls are smart in love, dumb in business.” Aaahhh… Patti and her generalizations! And she even has one for the Europeans! “Europeans are more comfortable with relationships,” she insists.
Patti also discusses her ever so archaic “rules” for finding love, which include: 1) A two-drink maximum on dates, as she equates getting too drunk as “sabotage” 2) Not giving too much information away on the first date – keep some things “secret” and 3) Don’t talk about your ex – “It doesn’t make a person feel special”. Allegedly Patti follows these rules herself, except for an once where she broke them on “accident.” As for what kind of guy she’s looking for: tall, rich, and romantic – and “no metrosexuals!”
Best of luck to Patti on her quest to find love and on her quest to set other people up successfully. I’ll believe it when I see it!
THOUGHTS ON THE INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE PATTI IS A SUCCESSFUL MATCHMAKER BEHIND THE SCENES? WOULD YOU FOLLOW HER RULES FOR FINDING LOVE?
Speaking out on Good Morning America, Maks is still seething over the unfair critique he believes he and partner his partner Hope Solo received at the hands of judges Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba. “I definitely have nothing to apologize for I have nothing to apologize for to Len, and certainly not to Carrie Ann. She can make all the faces she wants.”
“I don’t regret anything. That’s why I think I’m a bit misunderstood in this situation,” he explained, making it clear he has no intention of trying to make his way back into the judges’ good graces. “Everyone is waiting for me to bow my head, take a knee and say I’m sorry and plea for forgiveness. I have nothing to apologize for.”
He is also furious about how the judges speak to the contestants during those critiques! “Why is it that the judges are allowed to compare us to animals and say stuff they think is funny when it’s nothing constructive at all and we can’t say that they’re wrong, basically?” Maksim questioned, referring to comments from judge, Bruno Tonioli comparing Chaz Bono to a “little penguin”.
As for his comment to the judges calling DWTS “my show”, Maksim agrees he misspoke, describing: “When I got on this show six years ago I treated it as a dance competition and everyone here tried really hard to change my mind and say ‘Look Maks, it’s a show, there are other elements to it,’ so I embraced it. But one thing I’m not going to embrace is pointed fingers and disrespectful remarks.”
“I love the show. I love the fans. I love every aspect of it and that was the whole idea behind what came out wrong with “my show,” he explained. And he also loves his partner! “One thing I don’t want to do is to have Hope have any negative vibe out of this,” he emphasized, further leading to speculation that the two may be more than dance partners! “She’s truly our star and she’s been doing an amazing job.”
Well, Maks may love Hope and the fans, but there’s someone else he certainly doesn’t love besides the judges – competitor Derek Hough! Maks describes Derek as looking out for number one and calls him “very supportive of his personal career on the show,” referring to Derek’s comments agreeing with the judges’ critiques of Hope’s performance this week.
And he is making it clear Derek is successful because he gets all the partners with experience! “With all due respect, if I had Nicole Scherzinger, followed by Jennifer Grey, followed by Ricki Lake, I probably wouldn’t be very upset with the judges either!”
I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of this issue. I’ll be tuning in next week to see what happens! So the question is -
DO YOU THINK MAKS OWES THE JUDGES AN APOLOGY FOR HIS OUTBUST? WAS HE OUT OF LINE WITH HIS COMMENTS ABOUT DEREK? DO YOU THINK HIS RECENT BEHAVIOR WILL NEGATIVELY AFFECT HIS STANDING ON THE SHOW?

It’s time for your daily dose of Kray-Kray! Kelly Bensimon is moving onto other ventures following her departure from Real Housewives of New York and she fancies herself a fashion designer, who is looking for a man!
In a new interview, Kelly tells Celebuzz, that while she enjoyed television, her new goal is looking for love! “I would love to get married to someone that is a partner and is in it with me and not for the publicity,” she says of her plans to settle down and stop running in traffic.
“Housewives was a great opportunity because now I know what I don’t want,” she describes of her life following the Baywatch of Housewives, explaining that while she “loves reality TV” and thinks it’s a great “platform” it didn’t always (or ever?) work to her advantage where romance is concerned. “Being on Housewives was a blessing and a curse – especially for my dating life. A lot of people wouldn’t take me seriously, and I don’t blame them.” Hey at least she’s able to recognize that the whole world thinks she’s wack-a-doo!
“Seriously, what awesome guy wants to be reprimanded by women they don’t even know? That was the not-so-hot part of reality TV,” she explains. Anyone else not getting it?
Since being fired, her love life has improved and she is hoping to find Mr. Right! “My dating life is fun. I’m having a good time and hopefully I’ll meet the man of my dreams and have a little baby boy! That is on my bucket list. I want to have another baby.”
While she is not terrorizing the eligible bachelors of NYC (who are suddenly all very married), Kelly has been hard at work on her new career: shoe designer! Kelly is launching a new line of ballet flats created for Kelly by Kelly Bensimon. How long do you think it took her to come up with that name? Her line of flats will be affordably priced starting at $39.99 and $3 from each pair sold will go towards the Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ok – that’s pretty great!
“The reason I am doing this is because I’m the mother of two girls,” she tells E! “If I can put my name out there on something creative and help generate money to find a cure for this disease then I’m going to do it. I’ve seen the courage and I’ve seen the hope and I’ve seen amazing women persevere through such horrible situations. It’s really exciting to be able to help in any way.”
“I want to make it super chic but incredibly affordable because I feel like why can’t fashion be democratic?” And Kelly has big plans to expand into other fashion avenues. “This is the start of a bigger Kelly collection,” she reveals. “This is my first huge milestone and I’m hoping to bring all this great product and be able to be as charitable as possible on the largest scale possible. That’s my goal. That’s what I want.”
But if you are hoping to see Kelly in any of the ad campaigns for Kelly by Kelly Bensimon, and I know you were, don’t hold your breath. “I don’t need to be modeling in the ads,” Kelly scoffed. “The shoes are so hot, they speak for themselves. They don’t need anybody to be wearing them.”
The Kelly by Kelly Bensimon Ballet Flat collection will be available for sale this spring.

THOUGHTS ON KELLY’S HOPES TO FIND A MAN? IS THERE SOMEONE OUT THERE FOR EVERYONE? WOULD YOU BUY ANY OF KELLY’S PRODUCTS? EVEN FOR A CHARITABLE CAUSE?
Last night on theReal Housewives of Beverly Hills everybody got pampered and relaxed and got along swimmingly. Oh, wait – wrong show! The ladies continued their trip back in time to Beverly Hills High with Kyle playing the real-life all grown up Brenda Walsh, and Kim as her sidekick, and poor Brandi the victim of all their immaturity. I give Brandi credit – she stood her ground while retaining her dignity and did not bend to the almighty queens of bitchery.
Things start off with a little cooking lesson. Lisa has decided she can bear no more of Adrienne’s inadequacies in the kitchen and simply must teach her to roast a chicken. After everyone puts on their surgical gloves, they begin washing the chicken with dish soap – for anti-bacterial purposes. Then they stuff things up his bum after removing his guts. I guess Lisa was practicing for her treatment of Brandi later on! Adrienne is absolutely hopeless in the kitchen – hence the reason she has a chef – can’t find the salt and pepper or any of her three fridges, and just isn’t having fun. Was anyone else surprised they were stuffing a chicken’s butt with all their jewelry on?
