Heidi Klum’s Strange Sense of Fashion, Warren Todd’s Move to Dismantle an Iconic Part of London and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama
What in the world has happened to Heidi Klum’s fashion sense? She made some worst dressed Oscar lists for this dress.
I wonder what Fashion Police will have to say? Joan Rivers should be guest starring on the episode according to Nina Garcia:
LOVED having @joan_rivers @mel_rivers @rachel_roy on @officialprojectrunway. GREAT episode this Thursday
Is anything about Vanderpump Rules Real? We know that Jax stuffs his swimsuit and lies about everything. Is he lying about dating Stassi? Here’s a link to a photo from 2007 that is captioned: “Vincent De Paul and boyfriend Jax Taylor”

I can’t bring the photo to the blog because of the copyright, but it has Jax with his arm slung around Vincent de Paul, sitting in what looks like front row seats at a fashion show.
Warren Todd is one Unpopular Developer
Warren Todd was introduced as Ken Todd’s grown son (in his mid 40’s) on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. A quick google of Warren shows that he is indeed financially successful as a developer, but hugely unpopular in Britain. Seems he’s been “modernizing” an iconic part of London – Portobello Road Market – an area know for its antique stores and small merchants. Warren is “updating” it, buying it up block by block and turning it over to higher rent chain stores. It’s been a huge community battle as locals organize to keep the character of their neighborhood intact.
Warren has been characterized as a bully. When 64-year old arcade trader Marion Gettleson fought Warren’s attempt to get the one-day trading rule for a local market removed, he tried to evict her from the premises. Warren had purchased the property (knowing about the trade rule) and then tried to get the rule changed so that he could lease it out for higher rents. The one-day rule meant that stores could only open one day a week (a market format of trade). Going to a seven-day trade rule would change the character of the trade area – and make it much more competitive for chain stores. Progress? Not when you take something that is the heart of a community – an iconic piece of London – and turn it into just another chain store mall.
You can read about Warren’s battle with the arcade trader here.
Much of this started in 2010 when Warren Todd redeveloped another property into a mixed-use building, and rented out a large portion of the ground floor to a very large chain store. The store didn’t honor the design aesthetics that were agreed-upon to at least keep the storefront in harmony with the remainder of the neighborhood – although the real battle was the store itself. The sheer size of the store was out of character with what had been in the planning documents according to this article.
I could go on and on with this post but it looks like Mr. Todd is one unpopular developer in London. I guess we can see how he gets the money to fly Lisa and Ken around in a helicopter.
