Okay, listen (or read) quickly because you may never hear this again.

 

Here goes. 

 

I was about 80 percent wrong regarding “Models of the Runway.” It is a must-see for those of you who are true “Project Runway” fans, though surely a snore for the rest of you.

This supplement to the main event offers up dramas that we didn’t even know existed. For instance, did you know that designer Logan has a veritable model harem? Or that redheaded model Erika doesn’t have time to bond with the others because she’s too busy auditioning for Arby’s commercials? 

 

And get this:  even the models know that Mitchell’s designs are a collective hot tranny mess!

The funniest part of all is that the models actually think that they are in a competition. Yes, they win a spread in Marie Claire if their designer takes home the top prize, but they seem to be under the illusion that their walking coat-hanger skills will help them GET there, when we viewers know that it’s totally arbitrary.

Or is it?

Fatma, “Logan’s number one fan,” has taken on the strategy of being friendly to all  of the designers.  How very “Big Brother” of her.

And Vanessa brought in her own chicken-cutlet boobs to make up for her shortcomings in the bust department.

In the end, it was exiting designer Malvin’s model, Valerie, who ended up going home. This probably says more about Malvin’s design aesthetic than it does about Valerie’s talents as a model.

 

I will state here again that they really should keep the entertainingly crazy over the annoyingly talentless (Mitchell).

But in all fairness, how many ladies could confidently rock maternity wear with an “egg-chicken-nest” concept?
