I’m kind of obsessed with Olivier Green. His face. His accent. His slightly orange version of Leo’s “Titanic” hair. The glasses.
Like, who is this guy? “Project Runway” can’t even explain where he’s from, he’s just “international.” I don’t care what he designs — and I’m not impressed with that he did on the Season 9 premiere — I just want to see more of him. I’m fascinated.
Anyway. PR Season 9 premiered on July 28 and I’m already in love with everything about Anthony Ryan Auld, from his designs to his look to his color blind/testicular cancer backstory. I’m gonna get down on one knee and propose in a minute.
But first I have to gush over Bert Keeter. I’d love him no matter what, but he is completely on-point with his initial design. LOVED that dress He deserved to win, although I would’ve been happy for Anthony Ryan, too. He’ll win one soon, I have no doubt.
Rafael Cox had a rough time of it from Father Tim Gunn and then on the runway. It was all earned. Still, he should’ve been safe. Joshua Christensen deserved to go home for an awful outfit and the audacity to say he wished someone had told him it didn’t look good. Really?
The premiere started with 20 designers and they cut four right away:
• Gunnar, who is NOT the next Christian Siriano after all.
• David, my poor Boston boy.
• Amanda, who tried out for the past two seasons only to get dumped here.
• Serena, who loves Tim Gunn and postponed her wedding to do this. I liked her and want her to be my friend in real life.
For the first “Come as You Are” challenge, Father Tim Gunn woke the 16 remaining folks up at the crack o’ dawn and made them walk the city in their pajamas — with only one sheet from their beds to cover them — to get to Parsons. That was their challenge: Use what they are wearing and the sheet.
**FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE WORKROOM**
Kimberly on Bert’s use of boxer shorts in his design: “Your model’s gonna have nut juice.”
Laura to Olivier and his model: “Are you speaking foreign?”
**ON THE RUNWAY**
Christina Ricci is the guest judge. Where the heck does she go when she disappears for so long? Anyway, she’s actually a good guest judge. Several insightful comments and constructive criticism.
Joshua M. — shorts, boring me. SAFE
Laura — she had silks to work with and I like what she did. SAFE
Danielle — It’s very her, I like it. SAFE. Oh but she’s pissed to be safe. Do we have a mini Gretchen? I do think she’s going to go far, though. I’m keeping my eye on this one.
Viktor — Nice! SAFE
Becky — Very cute. SAFE
Bryce — I like the styling more than the actual design. SAFE
Anya — Not into the top, the pants fit well. HIGHER SCORES. She wanted to prove she could construct something since she’s never sown silk before. Nina is impressed by what she’s able to do in a short period of time. She loves the back. Everyone is obsessed with her sewing. Heidi was rooting for her. Christina loves the whole look. The pants do fit very well in the butt.
Julie — Love the top, hate the pants. LOWER SCORES. Heidi had higher expectations, based on her initial clothing rack. “The whole thing is just bad.” Christina is confused. The shirt is charming but she wouldn’t want to wear it. Nina has a problem with the poor construction of the pants. They look “weird” she says. Michael calls it an “I like myself” kind of pocket.
Olivier — No way. SAFE
Kimberly — Another napkin look. SAFE
Anthony — I worship this guy already. HIGHER SCORES. Heidi likes how he changed his pajamas. Michael loves his color combo and would never know he’s color blind. Nina likes how he used the trimmings but didn’t go overboard. Christina doesn’t mind how short the skirt is.
Rafael — No, sorry. LOWER SCORES. Heidi sees a lot of problems. “What grown-up wants to walk around with a bib?” Michael: “She’s wearing like a Flintstones disco pouch.” Nina said he had fit problems and it looks really dated. Christina said the pants are off-putting. She compliments the top, though. OUT!
Fallene — I have no problem with the puking clown, but I’m not into the look. SAFE
Bert — I love his use of the boxers in the skirt. HIGHER SCORES. Heidi says “I am in love with this outfit.” Go Bert! Nina thinks he has adorable boxers and it’s an adorable dress. It’s feminine and sexy and terrific. Christina loves the proportions. Michael likes the tones and asymmetry but he hates the styling. WINNER!
Josh C. — Not into it. LOWER SCORES. Heidi isn’t sure if he is worse or Rafael’s. Josh is upset because no one told him this didn’t look good? Seriously? That should dig his grave.
Cecilia — What’s with these teeny skirts that ride up? SAFE
Overall, I’m hopeful for this season. No one went down in flames — which is kind of a shame, because the over-the-top trainwrecks are fun to watch — but there are enough decent talents that the season shouldn’t be dull or a cakewalk for any one or two designers. Can’t wait to see more!
Don’t forget to Rate the Runway looks here on the official PR Lifetime site. They have much better pics than the shots I took of my own TV.
Here are the 20 original designers with my little notes from the “Road to the Runway” special:
Cecilia Motwani from Argentina (outspoken and confident)
Julie Tierney (Seth Aaron Henderson was “super duper” impressed with the sarcastic tough girl)
Laura Kathleen (blonde princess)
Viktor Luna from Mexico (made cool stud jacket)
Anya Ayoung-Chee (beauty queen from Trinidad who own learned to sew 3-4 months ago)
Bryce Black (my Idaho boyfriend)
Rafael Cox (was homeless for a couple of years)
Anthony Ryan Auld (cute color-blind Louisiana boy who had testicular cancer)
Becky Ross (white haired girl who grew up in a cult)
Bert Keeter (the love of his life died from AIDS, he turned to alcohol and he’s now sober and returning to fashion)
Kimberly Goldson (self-taught designer whose mom was also a designer before dying of breast cancer)
Gunnar Deatherage (he’s another self-taught designer, but he reminds me of Christian Siriano)
Danielle Everine (looks like the heroine in a Victorian novel, reminded Seth Aaron of Amelia Earhart)
David Chum (Boston boy! Everyone this season is self-taught)
Joshua McKinley (brought a menswear collection, but won everyone over; love that license plate jacket)
Joshua Christensen (bald menswear man of faith who wants to find a wife; he blew Seth Aaron away, )
Olivier Green (described as “international” and he has an interesting accent that’s just unplaceable)
Fallene Wells (she was a semifinalist last year but was told she needed more sophistication in her clothes)
Serena da Conceicao (works for Beyonce’s line, is obsessed with Tim Gunn — as we should ALL be! She wanted to start a Tim Gunn band with the first album called Made It Work? Is that what she said? Love it! Canceled wedding in Iceland to do PR)
Amanda Perna (has a high pitched voice and tried out for the past two seasons)

Sign up. Check out the forums. It’s a new FORT (Fans of Reality TV) but instead of telling everyone there’s no more “Bachelorette” sleuthing because posters are too crazy, they let people sleuth and spoil. And even though I’m *just* finding it now, it’s been up for all of Ashley Hebert’s Season 7 and it posted the finale and “After the Final Rose” details a couple of days before Reality Steve. I wish I had known that before doing this story, but oh well.
They will also be doing stuff on “Bachelor Pad” Season 2, although those spoilers are already out there up until the final four and the winners won’t even be chosen until September.
Of course the best place for Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor Pad news is still Wetpaint, but it’s nice to have a sleuthing/spoiler site to go to again.
Right now “Fairy Dragmother” Peach is talking about her “Holly Hobbie dinner napkin disaster” on “Project Runway” Season 8.
Thank you, Lifetime. I really wanted to see this season again. (Sarcasm.)
But it is awesome to see more PR before the Season 9 premiere, which (as you must know) is next Thursday, July 28 at 9 p.m.
I don’t know how long these repeats will be going on — or when they even started, I’m just noticing now — but I hope they go back and start from the beginning and do a FULL ASS MARATHON!
See you next week for the premiere!
Wait! Do we know if Tim Gunn will continue to do his amazing post-episode vlogs on his Facebook site? He got into some hot water last season for being brutally honest, but I love him for that. Please keep vlogging, Father Tim!
To be fair, few things aren’t better than “The Bachelorette” Season 7.
I love “The Bachelorette” and I’ll watch it no matter what crazy shenanigans they pull, but this season has been rough. Still not as rough as Brad Womack + his therapist, but Ashley Hebert’s season is only just now becoming bearable and we’re already at the overnight dates.
On the other hand, “Love in the Wild” is getting better and better every week.
Samantha and Mike are already a stronger couple than Ashley and JP or Ashley and Ben F. on “The Bachelorette.” I don’t see the appeal of Steele, but he and Erica seem to be doing well too. I felt bad for Jason, but he should be glad to be free of Jessica. Derrek is a twat. Ben is a twat, but I love him with Brandee. She brings out the best in him. Theresa and Skip get such little air time I keep forgetting they are there. Heather and Miles are a good team.
But I just love Mike & Sam. They are living out the love story I wanted to see on “The Bachelorette.”
Next week it looks like they are forced to switch partners and someone is carted off in an ambulance Nice.
Are you watching “Love in the Wild”? You should watch. Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC. At least tape it or watch it On Demand. Or just catch up on episodes right here on the official site.
Not that I’m giving up on “The Bachelorette.” I’m not sure if Ashley picks JP or Ben. I said Ben before but I really have no idea. Read all kinds of Bachelor/Bachelorette news/spoilers and fun stuff here at Wetpaint’s site.
And don’t forget: The Greatest Show On Earth is coming soon! Yes! “Bachelor Pad” Season 2 arrives on August 8. Prepare.
Now it feels real!
I haven’t seen photos on Lifetime’s official “Project Runway” Season 9 site yet, but Us Weekly just got an exclusive look at the Season 9 cast.
So far I’m into the crazies like Bryce Black and Viktor Luna (a name that sounds like it was stolen from “Harry Potter”) — and “Uncle Tightass,” of course!
Here’s the Us intel on the 20 new designers, as copied wholesale from UsMagazine.com:
BERT KEETER, 57, based in Los Angeles
More About Bert: A graduate of NYC’s Parsons design school, the single Keeter warns Us, “I enjoy my space and can be difficult when I don’t get it.” (His nephews call him Uncle Tightass!)

DAVID CHUM, 29, based in Boston

More About Gunnar: A hair stylist for AVEDA, self-taught designer Deatherage would “kill” to design for Nicole Kidman.
JOSHUA CHRISTENSEN, 29, based in Los Angeles
More About Joshua: Why should Christensen win Runway? “I’m focused and driven,” he tells Us. “Runway is not about being on TV; It’s about being a designer. Plus, I have years of pent up creativity waiting to be unleashed.”
FALLENE WELLS, 29, based in Denver
More About Fallene: Will Wells make for a drama-free season? “I can get along with almost anyone,” she says. “I let things roll off my shoulders.”

BECKY ROSS, 38, based in Portland, Ore.

*Spoilers and speculation ahead!*
“The Bachelorette” Season 7 has been pretty wince-worthy up to this point, but I would argue it’s still not half as bad as Brad Womack’s Debbie Downer of a “Bachelor” Season 15. He had a therapist! On several episodes! And he never looked comfortable with the woman he chose (and vice versa). That was one of the worst seasons I’ve ever seen — and I was a big proponent of bringing Brad back, just not Boring Robot Brad who told every girl the same thing (did he think Emily wouldn’t notice?).
I’ve always preferred “The Bachelorette” anyway, for the obvious reason that it’s much more fun, to me, to watch 25 guys fight over one girl. If I want to watch girls crying and snapping at each other I’ll go back to middle school.
However, unlike some seasons, on Season 7 Ashley Hebert has only really had two contenders from the beginning.
Even though Ryan Park seems sweet to me, the guys bash him as the second coming of Jake Pavelka and he just seems too cheesy for Ashley. Reality Steve seems to think they are setting up Mr. Sunshine as the Season 16 Bachelor and maybe that’s true — he has the generic Captain America looks the show loves.
Ames Brown seems like a fascinating guy but even if he weren’t already dating Jackie Gordon from “Bachelor Pad” Season 2, he would still not be right for Ashley. Did you see the condescending way she reacted to his (creepy) elevator kiss — like he was some little kid who made a surprisingly adult decision and “Wow, good for you, little buddy!”
There’s no one else other than Ben Flajnik and JP Rosenbaum. Constantine Tzortzis may get to the final three, but he seems as into Ashley as Chris Harrison.
Reality Steve’s spoilers say JP is the final guy, but Steve’s sources have given him bad intel for the past two seasons in a row — leading me to wonder if Bachelor/ette producers may have finally gotten a hold on their own finales. We’ll see.
(And no, getting an update a week or two before the finale does not count if the wrong spoiler has been out there for months.)
(*Update* Dang it! It sounds like the spoilers were right and Cupcake is off the market. Rats.)
JP is getting major screen time. I’ve read the arguments why that means he’s NOT the winner and I’ve read why that doesn’t mean anything. I’m going by what I see chemistry-wise.
JP is the friend who picks Ashley up after she’s been dumped by Bentley Williams. He was the first one to get two 1-on-1 dates (before Mr. Sunshine even got one) but they were both post-Bentley talks where she just talked to JP about Bentley. Ashley and JP don’t have as much fun together (at this point) as she has with Ben F.
JP is insanely attractive and I’m starting to think he just has great chemistry with everyone. If JP were The Bachelor, even Chris would make eyes at him. I don’t think there’s anything *special* about JP’s chemistry with Ashley, despite him saying he just has a feeling about them. I think Ashley likes having him as a shoulder to cry on and I have no doubt that he’s an amazing kisser.
But she just has a different look around Ben F. I can picture her picturing herself out there in Cali, dealing with whatever people deal with when they have wineries. It’s a relaxing kind of lifestyle. Ashley likes wine. Ashley could use a low-key guy to balance out her zany energy. And I think she knows that. Plus, Ben F. is protective of her and also funny in a way that Ashley seems to like. They seem to “fit.” That doesn’t mean she’ll pick him — I thought Jake and Tenley “fit” better than Jake and Vienna — but it makes more sense to me. I loved their “mental kiss.”
Both JP and Ben have done videos on the official Bachelor site. JP talks about how, by Episode 6, he’s “smitten” with Ashley. Ben F., on the other hand, looks half asleep in his video and plays down his interest to such an extent I have to think he’s joking around.
Plus — and I don’t know why I’m reading so much into this, but I am — Life & Style had that cover story where they announced that Ashley is engaged and “elated.” They described her chosen one as “… the sweetest guy, and he’s very sensitive. He had his heart broken in the past, but he loves being in a relationship, and he and Ashley have great chemistry.” I think that could be either JP or Ben but to me it sounds more like Ben.
Also, Ashley does her People magazine blogs every week and for the one in Phuket, Thailand she talked about how Ben stood out to her at the orphanage:
“At this point, I started to see the guys in a completely different light, especially Ben F. He took it upon himself to paint a mural for the children and was a standout guy in terms of interacting with the children. It really melted my heart, and I feel like this helped solidify my feelings for him.”
At the end of the column, she said “Looking back at this week, the most important lesson I took away is that the best type of love starts off with a slow burn, and eventually turns into something much brighter than a spark ever could.”
Slow burn = Ben.
To be fair, I’m really pushing this Ben F. argument because I want JP as the next Bachelor. And not just because I had a very nice dream about him that I wish I had TiVo-ed so I could watch it back. I think the whole “Cupcake” storyline is adorable but almost too perfect.
If JP and Ashley are engaged and happy, I’m happy for them. But there’s really no one else from this season who would make a decent Bachelor. Not Mr. Sunshine. Not mellow yellow Ben F. Ames is already dating someone else. And they have no luck with finding random guys off the street. Remember Brad?
Anyway, read all kinds of recaps, top 10 lists, spoilers, speculation and random gossip at Wetpaint’s Bachelorette site. And don’t forget to read up on “Bachelor Pad” Season 2, which won’t start until August 8 but it’s already 100 times better than Ashley’s season.
Wait a minute. I forgot something.
It’s possible that if Ashley IS engaged to JP then they could make Michael Stagliano the new Bachelor, because Stag and Holly Durst are no longer engaged and he supposedly still holds a torch for her and cries about it on “Bachelor Pad” but she’s just not that into him anymore. Or something.
I still want JP as the mini rosemaster, but Stag is my second choice.
Are you reading the blind vice reveals that were just unveiled on July 4 on Crazy Days and Nights? You should be.
Every Friday I head there for the juicy blind vices. I usually come up blank on who is involved, but the commenters are astute and usually guess well.
And now we have the answers to many of the BVs. I wish Ted Casablanca would do this for The Awful Truth, but he’s not as awesome as Enty.
I kinda sorta trust this entertainment lawyer guy. It doesn’t mean the vices shouldn’t be taken with a grain of salt, but we all figured Michael C. Hall and Julia Stiles had a thing on “Dexter,” despite her assertions to the contrary. No?
Some of the vices are truly wowzers. I’m posting a taste below, but Enty said he has tons more to post, so I may not have seen the best of them yet. Even Lucille Ball has a vice listed!
Here’s a sampling of the full shebang. If my friend Lisa is reading this, I hope this makes her stop telling me I should marry Josh Hartnett:
Original vice post date: June 27, 2011
This A list couple, although, if taken individually he is probably a B+ actor who sucks at acting and she is rarely in anything anymore because I think most of her days are filled with followup doctor’s appointments. Anyway, this couple is finished. Over. If they don’t announce their divorce prior to July 4th, I will go ahead and do it for you on that day. You know, because I care.
Reveal: Demi & Ashton
May 24, 2011
These would have been very hard without the Estella Warren part of the equation. It is amazing what someone will tell you about themselves in a two hour conversation one night.
#1 – Had an affair with this A list movie actor. Was said to have been the reason his marriage ended.
#2 – Complained about having sex with this B- list movie actor with a bigger name than his resume should really give him, because she says to everyone that he always wanted to talk about it before and after and analyze the whole event.
#3 – Called this fellow countryman and celebrity, her 30 second guy, and that was actually his record. Most of the time he could not even get to where he was going without finishing if you know what I mean.
#1 – Bruce Willis
#2 – Josh Hartnett
#3 – Michael Buble
April 25, 2011
So, when this then A list movie star married this then A list television actress it was a big deal. Heck, even though they have been divorced for years it is still a big deal. Apparently the reason they rushed the wedding is that our A list television actress refused to have sex with the A list actor until they got married. Bet he did not have that issue with his current partner.
Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston
April 18, 2011
#1 # 2 & #3 – This mostly movie B- list actress has had something strange happen to her. Most of the time when someone cheats on someone with another actor in this town, nothing really happens. Apparently though, the scorned C+ television actress has made it her own personal crusade to tell everyone who will listen about how badly she was hurt by the cheating actress because of what she had done for her ex. She of course also blames her ex, the A- list television actor from a hit show. The crusade has made the two cheaters kind of pariahs among their peers.
#1 – B- movie list actress
#2 – C+ television actress
#3 – A- list television actor
#1 – Julia Stiles
#2 – Jennifer Carpenter
#3 – Michael C Hall
April 8, 2011
#3 & #4 – Speaking of A list celebrity couples. Well, not really, because only the woman is. The guy is a hanger on. Anyway, earlier this week they visited her lawyer to talk about a pre-nup. Apparently the yelling got so loud, there was a crowd around the conference room where the meeting was being held. This went on for an hour. Now I wonder whether the wedding will even take place.
Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson
April 1, 2011
#2 & 3 – This B list television actress on a hit network show has entered the movie world. She was also recently entered by this A list movie star. The two had a quick fling while filming their movie, but he dumped her. She has not lost feelings for him though and had sex with him when they saw each other earlier this week. When she asked when they would see each other again, he replied, “the next press event. If you are lucky we can hook up again then.”
Reveal: Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively
March 24, 2011
Although this supposedly had nothing to do with their recent breakup, this A list movie actress told many of her friends that when she was dating her A list movie actor boyfriend that he had the smallest peen she had ever seen on a guy. Like so small that when he did not trim that she had trouble seeing the stump in the bushes if you know what I mean.
Bradley Cooper & Renee Zellweger

Finally! “Project Runway” is almost here. July 28, baby! It’s even more exciting than the idea of “Bachelor Pad” Season 2 starting on August 8. But that is definitely exciting too.
