What is Seth Aaron up to now anyway? I miss him. I don't miss Emilio's attitude that much.

Remember: Short, tight and shiny is the quickest way to look cheap. So don’t forget to wear your tackiest mini on Thursday, July 29 for the premiere of “Project Runway” season 8.

According to The Futon Critic,‘Project Runway’ is set to return next month with some old friends: Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice.” (Nice! Love that those two, uh, “eccentrics” found each other.) “Sources close to the series have indicated the eighth season of ‘Runway’ will roll out Thursday, July 29 on Lifetime followed by spin-off ‘On The Road With Austin & Santino.’ The half-hour series follows the ‘Runway‘ alums as they cross the country finding women in need of a fashion makeover.”

Also according to the story, “Runway” will now air at 9:00/8:00c and run 90 minutes with “Austin & Santino” following at 10:30/9:30c. No one seems to know yet how or if “Models of the Runway” will be incorporated into the new season.

I also found this tidbit on Blogging Project Runway: Apparently while I was tossing and turning over Jake/Vienna and “The Bachelorette” implosions, Heidi Klum was on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and talked about season 8.

She said various vague things, including this “Survivor”esque tidbit about beleaguered contestants: “We had an incident – well, three incidents – where they basically dropped like flies and we had the ambulance come three times in a row.”
