Well Played American Idol…

In attempts to stop sagging ratings, American Idol is pulling out all the stops to get viewers back.  Mariah Carey is joining Randy Jackson at the judges’ table on American Idol.  

Idol needed a big name to compete with Britney Spears over on X-Factor and they got it with Carey.  The amount for Carey to be a judge on Idol? The one year contract is worth 18 million dollars making Carey one of the highest paid reality show judges.  Will this work? Will you watch American Idol again?  Who is going to replace Steven Tyler?

Project Runway Season 10 Episode 1

I know im late with this...

First let me start off saying there is an Asian dude with an afro, a chick with a leopard print on the side of her head from Dubai and a sista with a pixie blue haircut.  I MUST WATCH! I forgot about the white girl with the dreads!
The designers are all over the place.  You have the loud ones.  The ones who think they are better than everyone else. This season will be dramatic.
Tim Gunn gives the misfits a rundown of the challenge.  The first runway challenge will be in the middle of Times Square in New York City.  The budget is 100 bucks and is a companion piece to what they had to make before they came.  Some of the pieces that were already made were amazing, refreshing and wild. There are many designers who are working up until the last minute.  Maybe it’s nerves, or biting off more than they can chew.
The usual suspects were present for the judging, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors.  They were joined by actress Lauren Graham and uber fabulous stylist  and costume designer (and first guest judge) Patricia Fields.
This Gunnar kid… is annoying as hell. I see why he didn’t make it last season.
For the first runway show of the season, there were some really great designs.  Very few misses. The people who were in the top and bottom was deserving of where they were placed.

Of course you’re not gonna get any spoilers here about who left this episode, but I will tell you a lil secret… two designers walk off this season of Project Runway!  Really? OMG…

OOTD: Live your life!

I haven’t been posting for a while, I know bad blogger.  The month of June was something else and July was about to be a repeat.  Today I got a phone call and I spent 23 minutes with a woman who made my day.  I can honestly say it was the best phone calls I have ever gotten.  Not only did this woman restore my faith in humanity, she also gave me tips for doing my job better!  I can only hope that I have the pleasure of meeting this beautiful woman so I can thank her in person for such kind words to me. The woman told me many nuggets of advice and ever told about her late husband quitting his job and doing what he loved, writing.  He went on to write for TV! They didn’t care if they would be poor, just do what you love! She ended the conversation with a few words of advice, “Live your life,” and I plan to do what she says!

With that being said, I need to make more risks, with life and fashion.  Stop being so cookie cutter and play it by the books.  Today is not an example of that but it will be a start.
