The Fashion Star hostess is reportedly pregnant with baby number 2 a mere seven months after giving birth to Maxwell! Jessica post-poned marrying fiance Eric Johnson to lose the baby weight and it looks like that wedding will be on hold again.
As a lover of fashion, bad television, and all things post-Simple Life Nicole Richie, you would think I'd be all over NBC's Fashion Star. However, I am not. I just couldn't get into it to save my life…and this is coming from someone who plans to dress as Austin Scarlett from Project Runway for Halloween this year. To be fair, there are only so many hours in a day, so much space on my DVR, and, in addition to ridiculous amount of reality television I watch both for blogging and pleasure (it's fab too when those overlap!), I am also addicted Law and Order: SVU, HIMYM, and Happy Endings. It's A LOT of television.
I'm going to give it another chance though this season, and here's why: Elle Macpherson, the show's creator and former host has chosen Louise Roe to replace her, and I think it's an interesting change-up for the series. Not that I don't like Elle (she had a great work-out video back in the late '90s), but she's just not made for hosting. Sure, she's drop-dead gorgeous, but did you see her on Friends? It's like watching paint dry. Louise Roe has the fashion knowledge AND the hosting chops…not to mention she's just obscure enough to be intriguing.
Who am I kidding? Jessica Simpson is still on the show, and she hasn't been relevant since she divorced Nick Lachey. I doubt I need to point out what a sad state of affairs it is when an ex-boy bander from a boy band on the fringe of legitimate boy bands makes one relevant, but I digress. How did Fashion Star even get picked up for a sophomore season?
Nicole was on hand at Macy's in Glendale yesterday afternoon to launch her new fragrance, Nicole.
Season 2 of Fashion Star doesn't have a premiere date yet, but we do know that changes have been going on with the show behind the scenes. Elle Macpherson previously announced that she will not be hosting season 2, and sadly, H&M has decided not to participate in the upcoming season. I'm a little shocked by that one since the clothing sold out INSTANTLY after the show aired, especially on H&M's more reasonably-priced site!
