See ya Granny
Hello Gasmii! I hope your weekends have been fantabulous, swimming and sunning and playing hopscotch in weather like the glorious days we’ve had on the east coast. But enough about you, let’s discuss Project Runway!
Last week we had an all-knowing Lexus choose the challenge and it matched designers from today with designers from yesteryear in an awesome plot to drive everyone crazy. Oh, and it was a team challenge.

Bloated and self-important people won (Blorpheus) and bland and ethnically ambiguous people lost (Vampire Squiggy) but the important thing is Christopher melted down and told his Grandmother he doesn’t love her. It was your average over the top runway meltdown, but it will be important for this episode…
On to it! The show opens with the elimination aftermath in the Atlas apartments. Christopher gamely admits that being in the bottom panicked him and he threw Grandma under a bus as a reaction. Kind of nice for him to admit but he is fast sliding into Do Not Want territory with his histrionics and affectations. He better work to keep Skunk in the game because it is only by comparison that he is likable.
They are all discussing the challenge but little Afrasian is lying in bed molting. His little animal spirit flew out of him when he was forced last week to put his name to a normal, wearable garment. Skunk was his partner and says that he was being very quiet but since Skunk sucks the air out of any space, maybe Afrasian was just silently suffocating.

The producers must have heard our guffaws and did not send the designers in to see Heidi this week for the usual no reason whatsoever. Or maybe she was getting a pedicure and couldn’t be bothered. In any event, they head directly to Michael Kors’ store to pretend to be impressed by the empire he built on basics.
Someone needs a Bag Hutch
First up is Tim Gunn invoking the afterschool special voice to tell the designers that Grandma is gone. She up and left and won’t answer her phone. Probably should have given her the one with the big buttons.
Christopher feels like this is a joke being played on him. Yes, Christopher, Grandma is gone and it’s all about you. He also says he has “no words”. But he says this in paragraph form, as best befits speechlessness. Insufferability quotient upped.
Buffi (ironically) says Grandma wouldn’t have lasted much more anyway so who cares. Most people think it was a dumb move but aren’t really rattled by it. I guess because it was all a big joke on Christopher so it doesn’t affect them. Kors cackles that fashion “is not for sissies”.
It’s for angry old queens
