Department of Unsubstantiated Rumors

posted by on November 29 at 17:06 PM

This Project Runway gossip is from a reliable source…


the reason why christian (bitchy twink) has asymmetrical, fucked up hair is because he’s going prematurely bald as a 21 year old and has the most atrocious receding hairline. hence, the fucked up coif.


jack is apparently one of the biggest assholes around. and has frustrated bravo by going on illegal TV appearances. and the girls are apparently all really nice people who didn’t really cause drama, except for carmen, who everyone was kinda like, meh, stop being so aggro.

And, of course, Carmen was auf’d last night.

This will be the final season for Project Runway. It is too boring at this point and too predictable. It will go the way of Queer Eye.

ew. he has a tramp stamp.

Yep. Christian is clearly suffering from early onset of male pattern baldness. I've got more hair on my head, and I'm twice his age. I'm just not trying so awkwardly to compensate for it. In another couple of years, he'll have a combover like my grandfather that starts about a half inch above his right ear.

Ewww...that first one looks like a bad Boy George wanna-be-but-can't-quite-make-it, and the second one looks like there's more than one asshole in that pic.

I'm so glad I don't watch this any more. My other half LOVED this show before he died in February. I think maybe bad casting contributed to his demise.

He also watched Rachael Ray and those food bozos, though, so who can say?

On a tangent: Am I the only person who watched Housewives of Orange County hoping they all die in a huge earthquake and watch HOPING it will happen to them?

Jack looks like Frank Lampard there, and now that's all I'll be able to think about.

Posted by Abby | November 29, 2007 6:27 PM

This may just be showing how weird I truly am, but I really like Christian... AND his hair! Call me crazy, but the little guy kind of grows on you after a while...

Or maybe I just have so many bitchy twink friends of my own that he seems normal to me. *shrug*

Posted by Courtney | November 29, 2007 6:43 PM

Nooooo I love Christian! He's awesome!

Posted by Amelia | November 29, 2007 7:35 PM

How old is Jack in that picture? He looks like he has a turkey neck.

Posted by madscntst | November 29, 2007 7:47 PM

At least Christian is creative with his comb-over. And he hasn't started doing "the swirl" yet (where the hair from the back and sides of the head is combed forward, across and back again).

(The current group needs to step it up - last season's group demonstrated so much more talent long before this point in the season. Hey, designers, Tim and Heidi can only carry the show so far!)

Posted by redletter | November 29, 2007 8:20 PM

Is it just me or can anyone else see the tip of Jacks dick in that picture?

Posted by Chris | November 29, 2007 8:41 PM

Well, clearly, Jack is hot enough to get away with being an asshole. Duh.

I mean, the nicest hot people were all ugly until late in high school.

Posted by Gitai | November 29, 2007 9:08 PM

I hate him as much as I hate Chris Crocker. What a fucking loser-ass flaming faggot bitch. Fucking hell I hope he scores HIV and dies.

Posted by Mr. Poe | November 29, 2007 9:20 PM

Them's fightin' words, by the way. Un-ts!!

Posted by Mr. Poe | November 29, 2007 9:20 PM

Christian is annoying. The only guy that's halfway cool is the fat guy. And thank god the 80's freak girl (carmen?) is gone. Jack is just over the top in his perfect gayness...

Posted by M | November 29, 2007 9:30 PM

I also hate Jac...

Dude, okay, I'll say this one more time, and link to this for the rest of the season.

Everybody in this season is:

- Annoying
- Retarded
- Annoying
- Talentless
- Annoying
- Unattractive [personality, face, overall attitude in regards to criticism on their diarrhea-fan-club outfits]
"Psh, nobody understand how talented I am. I'm gonna' win!! I know I'm awesome! I love me! I rule!
Uh, no, you don't. And fuck you Tim Gunn for cutting off your balls and saying this is the strongest season you've seen yet, you sexy-ass-hot-motherfucker/moron. You idiot. They'd better be paying you in solid brick Gold. Holy fuck.

These are. The worst. The worst. The worst. I can't even watch the show anymore. It's embarrassing. For me!!

The only reason Nazi's should ever exist is to exterminate these motherfuckers.

Seriously! Are they cruisin' trailer parks for contestants now? I'm not trying to be grossly insubordinate here, I'm honestly asking: are they fucking cruisin' trailer parks for contestants now?

Because this is all absolute shit.

Okay. I'm done. I'll link back when necessary.

Tim Gunn, I love you, you're hot, I'd totally let you fuck me, but seriously, why in God's fake-ass name are you so red lately? Do tell. Thanks.

Posted by Mr. Poe | November 29, 2007 9:32 PM

I don't know who any of these people are, but the one with the ass tattoo looks like an old woman.

I hate those ass tattoos, by the way. Talk about tacky.

Posted by catalina vel-duray | November 29, 2007 9:42 PM

Mr Poe -- you don't think that guy already has AIDS? Am I the only one who can spot facial wasting?

Posted by tree | November 29, 2007 9:58 PM

Everybody but Tim Gunn has HIV, "tree". Everybody.

This show is so dead. It's deader than Dan Savage's penis.

Posted by Mr. Poe | November 29, 2007 10:44 PM

This show has gone the way of Top Model. The contestants aren't there for the the prize, they're there because they just want to be on TV.

Posted by 98109 | November 29, 2007 10:51 PM

I agree with all about how this season seems to be the worst talent-wise.
And, FYI, Jack is HIV-positive and has been for 17 years, or so the opening of this episode says.

Posted by Will | November 29, 2007 11:33 PM

WHo are these people and why are you talking about them.
Or should I say:
Like, Who are these people and like, why are you talking about them? Like, Why?

Posted by -B- | November 30, 2007 12:46 AM

Mr. Poe, Project Runway *always* cruised trailer parks for contestants. Did you not see Jay McCarroll's visit to his family on Project Jay?

And you don't need to be able to spot facial wasting to know Jack is HIV-positive; there have been spoilers all over the interweb for months talking about his HIV-related departure from the show. Or you could just read his official bio on the Bravo website, which states:
"Jack has also always been very open about his positive HIV status. Since his diagnosis in 1990, he has tried to combat the stigma of HIV by living honestly and being a role model through professional and athletic achievements."

Posted by chrisdiani | November 30, 2007 3:01 AM

Yes yes we know Jack has HIV which is tragic and we all hope he takes care of himself.

But that is not a blank check to be an asshole or a talentless (and rather poorly endowed) schmuck.

BTW: The entire branding of "Make it Work" they have done this season is fucking sick and frankly is a huge turn off. Remember when Tim said it in the first episode they all FUCKING APPLAUDED!!??? They should flash a TM symbol on the screen everytime it is said on the show.

Project Runway has sold out and I doubt we will see a season 5.

Posted by Just Me | November 30, 2007 4:21 AM

I am giving this season time. Get rid of some of the chaff and see who is actually worth watching. Of course, remember how Vincent lastest forever last season. Ugg! And stop ragging on Tim's redden face. These were taped in May and June and he may have gotten too much sun. This is why I would never appear on television, bloggers would exclaim about how ugly I am and how dare I not appear beautiful at all times while shilling for reality television.

Posted by BassSinger | November 30, 2007 7:39 AM

ARGH! Why the hell would you put who got Auf'd??? That's a spoiler, you dick! Not everyone has the luxury of watching a show when it's on. Some of us have to record shows in our old, broken down VCRs. Now what's the point???

Posted by Brad in Seattle | November 30, 2007 9:36 AM

Hey Brad,

Will Smith dies at the end of I Am Legend.


Posted by Mr. Poe | November 30, 2007 9:54 AM

Brad in Seattle, after 24 hours it's not a spoiler anymore.

And, you know, if you watch the show, Jack isn't really an asshole. He's kind of a nice guy. I know that may be difficult for some of you to grasp, seeing as how you've probably never met one.

The scene where Jack carries Christian into the room in a basket is hilarious and kind of sweet.

Posted by Fnarf | November 30, 2007 10:25 AM

I've met plenty of nice people. They've just never been guys.

Posted by Mr. Poe | November 30, 2007 10:51 AM


wtf! That shit's still waiting to be watched on my TiVo.

Thanks Dan.

Posted by hellllo???? | November 30, 2007 11:49 AM

Don't give me that "24 hour shit." It's still a douchebag thing to do.

Just because a movie opens on a Friday doesn't mean I want to hear about the surpise ending on a Saturday.

Be courteous and say "spolier alert". That's all I'm saying.

Posted by Brad in Seattle | November 30, 2007 12:02 PM

Well, I've got my own unsubstantiated rumor ... about Mr. Savage himself.

I hear Dan's modeling in his finest suit -- that is, his birthday suit -- for a local drawing event tomorrow ( on Capitol Hill.

Dan -- care to comment?

Posted by Rumor Mill | November 30, 2007 12:07 PM

Spoiler Alert: Jack is going to leave the show in the next two weeks due to illness.

HA HA !!!

I love destroying peoples hopes.

Posted by Just Me | November 30, 2007 1:16 PM

I work with Jack and he is just like he is on the show...kind, sweet and helpful. He is also really sassy and funny but they don't show that side of him. I love the rumors....such BS. Bravo loved Jack ....illegal tv...are you insane? Jack is the sweetest.

Posted by Sandra | December 1, 2007 1:01 PM

First let me say this is my first season I am enduring... I am uninspired thus far with the talent and even more saddened with the designs...

That being said, Jack's "turkey neck" is most likely lipodystrophy syndrome caused by a protease inhibitor drug he is taking for HIV. Although he may not admit to actually having fat anywhere on his body, the fat is lost from the face, neck, arms and legs, and is built up in other places.

As I have worked for a dermatologist, many people with lipodystrophy recieve collegen-based injection treatments to combat the physical signs of this effect. But everything about Jack seems planned and calculated, based solely on how he is presented on-air/online. IMO opinion, Dale can do better.

And as for Christian, he is a piece of fluff whose parents and friends spent too much time lying to him about his so-called talent, which resembles, and is immortalized in everyone of those "throw-back fads" they had to improve and update in this week's challenge. And so is his hair.. "Hey, Flock of Seagulls called... they want their hair back..." He is the drama princess, and the outspoken bitchy twink, Bravo counts on for the rest of the drama queens to tune in week after week... and yet, he is still very uninspiring with that talent as well.

As for the "self-professed straight man"... I can believe it only that he looks ridden hard and put away wet one too many times... but his queeny movements when he thinks the camera isn't on him tells a much different story... words lie, actions don't.

(picks up soapbox and exits stage left back into obscurity.)
