Paging Austin Scarlett! Mr. Austin Scarlett! Project Runway All-Stars is at the center of recent host drama, and I, for one, need it to be settled stat. I love this show. It’s been reported that supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely was poised to host the newest season of of Lifetime’s design fabulousness, but she backed out to film the upcoming Mad Max movie. Tina Turner is probably torn on her opinion of this gossip. We all know that Tina loves couture but has a special place in her heart for the Thunderdome.
The New York Post is reporting that producers scrambled to replace Rosie with Estée Lauder model Carolyn Murphy just days before the season started. One source tells the site, “Literally days before filming, the show suddenly had no host. Rosie had been pushing really hard for the job. She’d charmed everyone. But then with less than three weeks to go, Rosie pulled out to do ‘Mad Max,’ creating a huge drama. It put the production in a terrible position, and the Weinstein Co. even threatened to sue Rosie.”

But another insider explains that “[Rosie] was never fully committed to the project and there was no signed contract.”
Regardless, the new season is filming with the new host, but I am beyond thrilled to learn that, despite a mountain of personal drama, guest judge Katie Holmes kept her word and will appear on the show. Another show insider shares, that in light of TomKat divorce news, “Everyone expected Katie to cancel, but she didn’t. She’s friendly and professional but didn’t say a word about her divorce.” That’s the Joey Potter I know and love!
