Auf Wiedersehen



Bad news. Big time. Today, on the infamous Page Six, and in a personal memo, it was revealed that Tim Gunn, Parsons Chair, and Project Runway personality extraordinaire announced his departure from Parsons. He's got a pretty sweet new gig at Liz Claiborne. Given the choice of Chief Creative Officer at Liz Claiborne (which owns literally every mainstream brand out there) and Heidi Klums annoying laugh, I don't think it was a hard decision.

Could this be the reason he hasn't committed to the next season of Project Runway yet? Methinks so.I sure hope PR can save itself from itself, when he doesn't return. With Nina Garcia's snottiness, Michael Kors supreme boredom, and Heidi Klum's high-pitched 'auf wiedersehen', Tim was the best thing about that show. Wonder how they're gonna 'make it work' now.
UPDATE: I stand happily corrected. Looks like he's gonna make it work!

Heidi Klum bugs me, although she does have a nice.....ummm...smile? That one's for you G-pants.

Bug or no, she put together a great show. Am definitely curious about how it will function without Gunn. There is no other Gunn, is there?

Regardless, I remain hopeful because this show freakin' rocks the party that rocks the party.

Between the "carry on's" and the "make it work's" I hope there will be another who can come up with such great pointers and will be just as easily impersonated.
