Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn‘s new Amazon Prime series, Making The Cut, is pretty much Project Runaway but with a bigger budget (they got Jeff Bezos money now!) and Naomi Campbell as a judge. So basically what I’m saying as someone who loves fashion and models slinging clever insults at people is: I’m in. Oh wait, that’s Project Runway talk and Heidi has moved on from that. Sort of. Anyway, the trailer is now here.
Recently-ex Project Runway hostess and the Halloween version of SNL’s Penelope, Heidi Klum, has no regrets about leaving the brand that made her famous. In fact, she did everything but straight up tell People that the show has been a bore for several seasons now and she’s glad she’s leaving.
All those housewives traipsing around Andy Cohen’s office must stink to the fashion crowd because just as he was touting how great it was that Project Runway was heading back to Bravo, its two leading stars are saying, “See ya later, bitch!” and taking their talent elsewhere. Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are ditching the show to produce what sounds like the same thing with a different title on Amazon. So basically the original Project Runway is going to look like an off-brand Project Runway to whatever it is Heidi and Tim do.
Everyone at Bravo cried into the lamé scraps of Mood Fabrics back in 2008 when The Weinstein Company decided to uproot Project Runway and send Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn & Co. to Lifetime. It was definitely a blow to the network built upon a foundation of filming gays making over straights, over-serving middle-aged housewives, and attempts at fashion that would send Michael Kors into fits and shrieks of “It’s too pageant!” Welp, nearly ten years later, TWC is broke after the fall of Harvey Weinstein, and Project Runway is strutting back into the arms of Andy Cohen.

It’s once again time to curl up at Uncle Tim Gunn’s feet and hang on to every bright shiny jewel of truth that comes out of his mouth. Uncle Tim has already made it clear that when it comes to fashion, Kanye West has the creativity of the prisoners sewing panties on Orange is the New Black (no offense to the prisoners sewing panties on Orange is the New Black). And while talking to Access Hollywood, Uncle Tim once again released a stream of beautiful cuntiness about Kanye’s latest collection of rejected American Apparel designs:
“I’m totally perplexed about why the fashion industry has not looked at these, frankly, dumb, basic clothes and cried ‘Hoax.’ Kanye West is a sphinx without a riddle. I just don’t understand why people are so in awe. [The models were] basically wearing stretch undergarments. I think the only thing dumber than these clothes would be the people who would buy these clothes.”
And that ends another sermon from Pastor Tim Gunn of the Church of Truth! I won’t splash myself with holy water on the way out, because Tim Gunn will need a ton of holy water to hose down those evil Kartrashians when they come at him.

Before we fully get into the river of depressing smegma that this news week will probably bring, let’s raise a wig and celebrate some happy news: RuPaul finally got his hands around his first Emmy after being in the TV game for eons. HalleluRu!
If award shows always got it right, Ru would’ve gotten his first Emmy in the 90s for Best And Most Glamorous Talk Show host for Vh1’s The RuPaul Show. But since award shows mostly never get it right, that didn’t happen. It only took 20 years, but the title “Emmy-winning RuPaul” is finally a fact.
