'Project Runway' 10 Recap: 'It's All About Me'

September 15th, 2012 7:22pm EDT
Project Runway Season 10
This week's episode of "Project Runway" featured the custom textile challenge...and a whole lotta HP products. The designers were also visited by Mondo Guerra, the talented little guy from Season 8 who finished second to the WORST. WINNER. EVER. Mondo was a perfect guest, considering that he won his season's custom textile challenge with his bright "plus-sign" pattern that represented his HIV+ status. With Tim Gunn's help, Mondo explained that each designer was to create a print that represented their heritage, so it needed to come from the heart.

See this accessory wall behind me, kids? ...

You Can Run But You Can't Hide From 'The Walking Dead' at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

September 15th, 2012 10:00am EDT
Dead Inside
For those of us living in cooler climates, a trip to Florida or southern California during the brisk fall months sounds like a dream. But if the folks at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood have their way, visitors will be sucked into a dark nightmare from which there is no escape. At least until closing time.

Beginning on Friday, September 21, Halloween Horror Nights returns to both Universal properties, attracting legions of chill-seekers from around the globe. What's been billed as "the nation's premier Halloween event" is getting a shot in the arm this year with th...

'Project Runway' 10 Recap: 'Starving Artist'

September 7th, 2012 9:32am EDT
Designers Christopher, Sonjia and Gunnar
No, there was nothing wrong with your computer screen last week — Labor Day travel plans prevented me from recapping that episode of "Project Runway." It was kind of an interesting one, with everyone trying to make their designs Lord & Taylor-worthy, and most of the girls having breakdowns, but it turned into kind of a nicey-nice love-fest when all the designers were deemed "good enough" and no one was eliminated. So since we're starting this week's episode with the same 9 designers that were there last week, it's kind of like a recap from last week wasn't even necessary, right? Please help...

'Project Runway' 10 Recap: 'It's My Way on the Runway'

August 17th, 2012 11:23am EDT
Project Runway team challenge
Sorry about the lack of a "Project Runway" recap last week. Perhaps I was particularly busy, or perhaps I was curled up in the corner gently weeping over Buffi's elimination. More than Andrea's disappearing act or Kooan's decision to quit, it's Buffi's aufing that has put a bit of a dark cloud over the Parsons work room. While I would probably never ask Buffi to design my clothes, I would totally want to be her friend. And I would just let her talk to me in that amazing accent all day.

But Buffi's gone and the show must go on. And hey, we've got Raul back. Whoop-de-doo.

Heidi Klum appea...

'Project Runway' 10 Recap: 'Welcome Back (or not) to the Runway'

August 3rd, 2012 12:28pm EDT
Project Runway Season 10, Episode 3
This week's episode of "Project Runway" is all about red carpet style. Also, it’s totally about Lexuses. Is that right? Lexuses? Lexi? Whatever. The point is: GO BUY A LEXUS, EVERYONE.

Heidi Klum sends the designers off to meet Tim Gunn at one of my favorite places on earth – South Street Seaport. There, Tim explains that this week’s challenge is to create an Emmy red carpet look (for a secret client) with only $300 and in only one day. Then some guy tries to sell us all cars before handing over the keys to his fleet of Lexuses/Lexi to the design teams. Yes, TEAMS. The gang is split up ...

'Project Runway' 10 Recap: 'Candy Couture'

Project Runway Season 10
This week's episode of "Project Runway" begins with Kooky Kooan struggling to wake up and Ven struggling to accept the judges' decision to name Christopher last week's challenge winner. Gunnar Death Rage was concerned Christopher's head would swell after his win, but that would be impossible considering that Death Rage and Ven are pushing the ego capacity of the work room as it is.

Buffi Jashanmal looks like she's ready to pour some sugar on Christopher Palu.

Heidi Klum—looking exceptionally adorable in a plaid sheath—calls the designers to the runway for some of her standard not-so-sub...

'Project Runway' Recap: Season 10 Premiere

July 20th, 2012 11:32am EDT
Project Runway Season 10 premiere
"Project Runway" returned last night, and with it came all of our favorite faces – the always-fabulous Tim Gunn, host Heidi Klum, judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, and of course Mood’s adorable Swatch. As for the sponsors (and the product pushing started within the first seven minutes), HP and L’Oreal Paris have returned, but that thoughtfully-used accessory wall is now provided by Lord & Taylor instead of Piperlime. The big question is: are the L’Oreal Paris folks doing hair now, too? I didn’t see or hear any mention of Garnier. No Garnier?? Come on, it’s not an episode of "Project Runw...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'The Proposals'

April 13th, 2012 3:27pm EDT
Up All Night
When I first saw in the previews for the "Up All Night" season finale that Kevin returns to propose to Ava, which prompts Chris to RE-propose to Reagan, I let out an audible groan. However, by the end of "The Proposals," I may have let out an audible sniffle or two. And there may have been something in my eye, causing it to leak fluid. Let's get this straight: I WAS NOT CRYING. But I will admit that, for a somewhat flawed episode, it managed to end on a truly sweet note that acted as an antidote to my elevated levels of cynicism.

When Chris and Reagan recount their engagement story to ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Baby Fever'

March 16th, 2012 11:53am EDT
Up All Night
Just as I was starting to think that Will Arnett might never again be objectified for my viewing pleasure, the "Up All Night" writers came to the rescue! This week, we got to see Chris in the tub, in a towel and in his undies. And even though it was only a C-grade episode as a whole, I'm grading this one on a curve since it featured Arnett 1) in various states of undress and 2) uttering a classic Gob-ism.

The problem with this episode was that each of the three main characters had a separate storyline, and while there were times when they meshed to make some good moments (Chris and Reaga...
