This time of year is a TV wasteland. I’ve been DVRing things on ABC Family. And not for my kids. There. I said it. Please don’t tell anyone.
And then I find out that one of my favorite shows EVER is about to begin it’s 10th season! Project Runway. This is the show that inspired me to buy a sewing machine and become a clothing designer. Okay, well, not the designer part. But I totally bought a sewing machine and it looks very stately in our attic.
But I don’t just get to watch the new season.
I was invited to the 10th anniversary Project Runway party on the High Line in NYC!
Here I am at the big event….
What?! She has four kids. I have four kids. We are practically the same person. I just don’t need all that fancy super model/TV star/business mogul stuff to boost up my ego.
Ok. Here I am…
During this party (where people were very young and very tall), I desperately (with the help of Candace) tried to track down Tim Gunn so we could reconnect. Perhaps you remember when Tim Gunn and I first got acquainted on an American Airlines flight? I had those crazy eyes…
But I never found Tim Gunn at the party. I can only assume he got some kind of heads up that Ole Crazy Eyes was in the vicinity and he bailed.
I couldn’t find the judges either. But I did meet lots of designers from past seasons. And I hope they liked my sweaty palms because it was really hot and muggy.
I saw the adorable Mondo…
And Austin Scarlett…
And Austin’s nipple…
You don’t usually get a lot of nipple action at a posh TV party but there it is.
Anyway, the new season started Thursday night on Lifetime.
(And a special thank you to Lifetime Moms for inviting me to this amazing event. Please tell Tim Gunn that he can’t avoid me forever.)
