I cannot wait for Top Design, for reals. I fear that the only people with me on this are ziggy1278
, however.( You expect me to march into that birdsnest stadium dressed in that? With these thighs? )
A general note on the season as a whole: NBC is really using this show as a promotional vehicle, aren't they? It's almost as bad as Fox planting random stars of their shows in the audience at Idol. First the Olympics, then Brooke Sheilds, who stars in an NBC show. Some of it really does make the Top Chef sponsored challenges seem more organic in comparison.
P____ pinged me last night and said that he thinks PR might have jumped the shark. I've been saying lately that I'm personally over the whole bitchy-gay-fabulousness thing, which of course women can also do. I'm finding that I prefer the vaguely lesbian vibe of Top Chef; maintaining the appropriate level of fabulousness is exhausting. Besides, my two boys, P____ and D__, are not particularly obsessed with it nor demand it of me. However, I find that the seven fabulous gay boys this season—that is, all of them but Joe—really leave me hanging, while the women, who are by and large downtown girls rather than uptown ladies like Laura Bennett, are doing very well. Korto, Terri, Kelli and Kenley are all making clothes I would wear—I might even wear Stella's in the right mood. I don't have a lot of time for Jennifer (is any of that surreal?) or Emily and Leanne is too mannered for me. But on the boy side, I can't say I'm excited about any of them except Daniel, and him less as he repeats himself. And straight-boy-Joe is just kind of boring, though I adore him for being very aware of his responsibilities as a father of daughters.
Anyway, time for a poll, I think.
