Talking Project Tension and ANTM

What's Jack up to? Today's he's risking life and limb by going up to the kids rooms and rooting around. Jack you don't want to do that. Teens live up there. You could be lost forever!


Project Tension
What a nail biter. I was on the edge of my seat during every moment of Project Runway last night. It's crazy how much I love this show. Here's a rundown of my thoughts if you care to hear.




Aww, check out Christian’s shoebox. Now that’s how a New Yorker lives. I was kind of sad that we didn’t get to meet his family. Great Tim Gunn quote that I will take with me everywhere: “Look at it with an editing eye.” Good advice Tim.






Jillian were you actually growing on me? How sweet was her family and her words? Who knew?





How moving was Rami’s coming out as a designer story? His red blouse was amazing. But, didn’t his space show just how far he already is as a designer? Hmmm. I still think he doesn’t need this as much as the rest of them.






Tim with Chris, too funny. Another perfect Tim point: The monkey house at the zoo. “You’ve been living at the monkey house so it doesn’t smell to you!" Ha. Who's funnier than Tim?
Was there a hint of sadness when Chris talked about his family?I think so, poor baby. But his New York family is wonderful. And that apartment was just wow.



Back in NY. No wonder Rami and Chris are is love, it looks like they were both about to burst into tears in the three tabled workroom.



Uh oh Runway show.Chris? Human hair was creepy and safety pins crazy, but all beautiful.
The night was just full of sayings.
New saying thanks to Michael Kors: Velvet condom. Huh?



Loved the Drapemaster’s Grey dress. Yes, he can drape did you know that?






I’m biting my nails who will they choose? Please be Chris, Please be Chris...
Deliberation time.
Pause- pause. Commercial. Ugh!

Ugh again!!! Where is my Chris going? Why? No fair. You’re killing me. Was it the hair? Sigh.

I’m looking into getting extensions next week in protest or at least a wig!
Oh well, at least he went out laughing and a Queen. Bye Chris!! I'll miss you.



ANTM hits NYC

Love the Marvita/Fatima smackdown. Fatima was starting to make Brandy look sweet, but the apology was nice. Could she and Marvita end up being friends? Who knows?

There are lots of girls with stinging tongues this time around. Are you hearing me Allison?


New word from Miss Jay: Draglicious.


Kim what the heck was that? You don't belive in designer fashion? What!? I thought Miss Jay would have a heart attack. That was just wrong. Did she just want to be on TV for a minute or got there and got scared?Ugh. I hope they bring another girl in next week to take her place.




I think I’m going to really like Paulina as a judge. Twiggy will be missed, but that Paulina has some fire standing up to Nigel.
I know I’m going to love them being in New York.
Bye Atalya. I hope to see you soon. You’ll make it girl. Chin up.





Oh here's a last minute new Top Model prediction. Claire. How great was her photo?

Whew, what a TV night! Isn't escapism bliss?


Best,
Kwana

Project WTF. I'm so over Toga boy. And after seeing the full collections over at Bravotv.com, I know Chris should be the one in the finals. He would've taken the show.

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Thanks for the Project Runway recap...I was so exhausted yesterday that I fell asleep while watching it! LOL!!

As for ANTM, I had a feeling that Atalya (SP?) was going to be the one to go home. Usually when they have one girl speaking the most on camera, she's usually the one to get the boot! I didn't think it was fair to send someone home after Kimberly quit.

Wednesdays are such great TV nights! I can't wait for Top Chef to return!

Kwana said...

Thansk Keri. I'm glad you liked the recap :)

I'm over Toga Boy too, Mel. I loved Chris So much talent there and a sweetheart. I hope he gets backers and his own collestion. I think Christian will be the winner.

Thanks Brown Girl. I hope you get to see the PR repeats. I agree with you on ANTM they should have given the other girls a pass and you're so right about camera time and the booted girl.
I'm holding my breath waiting for Top Chef.

I am so sad about Chris but I think the human hair was just too much. I did think his pieces looked so crisp and cool though. People love him I am sure he will get something from his 15 minutes of fame. I really am not sure who will win. This is going to be a close contest!!!

David Dust said...

Hey Kwana - I too am saddened that Chris was sent back to that stinky Monkey House!

Thanks for your comment, as always!

Bye, love you, love the hair!...

Yasmeen Christian said...

I really like your blog ;-)

Brigitte said...

I'm officially off of ANTM, when I heard Marvita recount her childhood, I just couldn't bear the thought of seeing Tyra & Co. exploit it for "good TV." The show just doesn't do it for me anymore.

OTOH, I think I will love PR until the bitter end. I'm happy Rami got in instead of Chris. I just can't deal with his laugh and I think Rami's clothes are so much more wearable.

I still have no opinion on Jillian. Every week I forget that she's there.

Kwana said...

Hi Eileen, aka Wish List Mom!
You're right it will be close. I think it will be Christian but then I'm always wrong!

Hey, David. 'Monkey House' was just the funniest thing ever!

Hi, Yasmeen, Thanks for the comment. I really appreciate it. Please keep visiting.

Hi Brigette, I get what you're saying. I'm such a die hard ANTM fan that I just can't give it up. I'm still stck on Survivor too:) But you're right Tyra will be all over that "cause".

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

Now you know she gone make it and truth be told, it aint been the same since the first season....dragalicious, add that to he dictionary hon

Kwana said...

She'll do fine, Torrance. She's a pretty girl and i suspect she won't give up.

Elizabeth Kerri Mahon said...

Did anyone really think they were going to choose Chris? I always knew that it was going to be Rami. As far as I was concerned it was tres anticlimatic. And Chris got to show at Fashionweek anyway along with Sweet Pea.

Kwana said...

I know Elizabth. But I was hopeful. I was over Rami in the very beginning.

sula said...

Ok, I finally watched the episode so now I can read this entry. hehe.

I did like Chris as a contestant. He was funny and laid back. But I thought that of the two of them (given the pieces they showed), Rami deserved to stay. I still think Christian is the odds-on favorite to win the whole thing. I haven't peeked at the final runway looks though, so I may be totally off base. But overall, Christian (as bratty and obnoxious as he is) has been the number one designer for my money. Jillian annoys me in general. And it seems that she has a fetish for structured jackets just as much as Rami has for his draping.

Is the finale going to be shown next week?

Kwana said...

Sula you are so funny. I'm glad Rami has a fan. I think the winner will be Christain too. Yes, I think the finale is this week. I sure hope it is.
