5/13 Tim Gunn For President





First off, just when we thought that Bravo had totally turned their backs on the show – the new season already being filmed in L.A. for Lifetime – well, they pull out one of the best episodes of the season. Bravo, Bravo.

The four finalists, Jerell, Kenley, Korto and Leanne, are sent home with an $8,000 budget and two months time to create their own collections, which, Heidi dictates, must include a wedding gown that represents them as a designer. Tim Gunn visits each one, and quite frankly, is more charming, more diplomatic, more helpful and more informed on his issues than any candidate for president we’ve seen buzzing around lately. At Korto’s home in Arkansas, he sweetly engages her shy daughter and seems enchanted by Korto’s African drumming. In Portland, he warns Leanne that her wedding dress might miss, and then, despite his formal demeanor, rides a bicycle built for two with her, and (heavens) sits on the grass. With Jerell, he counsels that the overwrought collection has a “lot of look,” and then mingles easily with Jerell’s friends and family who are obviously nervous. His greatest feat may have occurred in Brooklyn, where he meets with Kenley, who has been incredibly rude to him. Here, he leaves it all behind, encouraging and praising her. And then, before the going gets really tough, he sheds tears – he’s embarrassed but tells them all, “I care deeply about each of you.” And you believe him. This is an extraordinarily graceful and gracious person. He’d be an asset in the White House.

Okay, so back to the show. The kids think they’re home free but alas, there’s one more challenge… make a bridesmaid’s dress to go with the wedding dress. Leanne, who totally redid her collection’s wedding dress, aces it with a pale turquoise and cream short strapless number that repeats her wave motif at the top. The judges are swooning. Kenley, too, does a fabulous job. Her navy blue poufy mini dress is the perfect combo with her “crazy good,” as Heidi puts it, feathered wedding dress. Jerell’s stuff – scary – we told you once before – too tricked out, including some styling errors such as “a flower pot growing out of her head,” says Michael Kors. We didn’t much like Korto’s gown either – over-pleated and kind of bulbous or her bridesmaid’s dress…Banana Republic sale rack.

Allow us, for one brief moment, to gloat…we called it…Jerell goes, the women dominate. And now, we’ll go out on a limb. We think it comes down to Leanne and Kenley, and we think that Leanne will take it all. Stay tuned.

Hey AB, finally had a chance to catch up on last week's episode and, it was well worth it! How could anyone not just love Tim Gunn?? Speaking of loving, I loved Leeanne's wedding dress and bridesmaid dress and think she will be the ulitmate winner. Although, she walks a fine line with all of those "waves"...could get to be a little too much if she isn't careful. I was sad to see Jerrell go because I have always thought he was quite creative and fun. Korto annoys me because she seems to always be grumbling and angry about something and I don't particularly like her clothes. And Kenley sucked it up for this episode and was not as rude as she has been. Loved her bridesmaid dress and the wedding dress for the right person would be wildly fun. On to this week....

Runes of Magic is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role playing Game without monthly costs all kinds of Rom Gold and free to download. The premise is that you have played this game and understand the necessary Runes of Magic Gold in the Runes of Magic game. Perhaps the first monster I saw taken down in the demo can gain those varieties of Runes of Magic money. Characters choose one class; the important one is that we have to buy Rom Gold first. You can switch freely between the two classes, but you can only use primary abilities from your primary class, along with cheap Runes of Magic Gold, secondary abilities from your secondary class.
