For all of you wondering what was up with that super awkward pause between Daniel Franco, Heidi Klum, and Tim Gunn on the Project Runway reunion, you’re in luck. It just so happens that the TVgasm Myspace account is friends with Daniel Franco (one of 3,000. We’re that special), and as luck would have it, the aspiring designer recently explained himself in a bulletin. Enjoy.
This is probably not worth writing about, however...
I am trying to just laugh off the akward editing-gag-gone-lame between Me and the Lovely Heidi Klum "I Love you" train wreck moment but....
As a man who believes in priciples & honor, I must let it be known that I would never ever approach a happily married woman with any akward intentions at all. It does not match up one bit with my ethics.
When I said "I Love You Heidi.." It was because she said something incredibly complimentary about my lingerie collection, not shown on the special, and I meant it as a great term of affection, respect and admiration. She said something that was to me, a great validation of my work. ( confidentiality agreemeant kicks in now)
Heidi Klum created Project Runway, an amazing forum for fashion designers. So I consider her a "patron saint of the arts". I meant " I Love you Heidi", as a...Thank you and I look up to you, for the opportunites she created for all of the artists on the show.
I think the producers wanted a good laugh like the one in the Lingerie episode during the presentation of our groups to Heidi. Remember the 70's guitar in the background as I say" I want to show you something beautiful "? But this time the editing was rushed, they got this episode out in 2 weeks...amazing actually. As compared to 6 moths for the Lingerie episode.
So, there it is...my official response to that.
By the way I LOVE ALL OF YOU TOO!!!!!!!!!! With No akward editing in sight!
He then later wrote in his blog:
Thank you for the intense response of affection, over 2000 posts/emails on my myspace.com/finedetail account in one day! I now realize that I was
overreacting to the "I Love you" moment. I thought my honor as a gentleman was at stake, but all of you have proven to me that it is not the case.
Fear not, Daniel. Your honor as a gentleman will always be preserved.
