S13E3 “Past, Present And Future”
By Princess Pindy
The episode starts off with the designers gossiping in the apartments. Fade and Sean are saying that Angela is lucky to still be there and it’s because of them that she stayed, pretty much. Hernan thinks that Sandhya should have gone home and her immunity made her not work as hard, perhaps. Amanda is thrilled to have won and have immunity this week. She feels if she can “kill it” on this challenge with immunity that will send a message. And poor Angela believes that she is a “real designer” damn it!!! She is almost in tears already.
It is Marie Clare Magazine’s 20th Anniversary. Ann Fulenwider editor-in-chief helps Tim announce the challenge. They are to make a look that is inspired by the designers’ past and show what the future of design looks like from their perspective, twenty years in the future. It is a one day challenge. There is a montage of Tim and the judges in the 90s. Tim taught at Parsons and looks the same. Nina was a fashion assistant, Zac was 14 and just getting into fashion. Heidi has come to New York and wants to be a model. She looks a lot like Brandi…yikes. (Brandi before booze and botox, duh.)
The designers sketch and there is a montage of their ideas, Talking Heads, and sketches and all the sketches look wack!! First trip to Mood!!!!!!!! WHOOO HOOO!!!! They have $200 and 45 minutes to shop I am amazed at the beautiful fabric at Mood. I am even more amazed by the ugly fabric the designers choose!! I have been on the website and I will someday drive up to their Los Angeles store…I will not buy ugly fabric!!!
IN THE WORKROOM
The designers are surprised by pictures of their past from 1994 on the walls!!! So cute, and the designer’s are having a great time. And I love Amanda even more! She is so funny. Sandhya looks the same at nine years old as she does now. Emily was 21 and sooo hot!!! WOWZA!!!! Sam thinks cliques are forming and is not concerned about friends. Isn’t that what people that aren’t “IN” say, lol. The lady doth protest too much, me thinks.
TIME WITH TIM
Sean’s design could be cool..Poor Angela, she is just so insecure and lacking in confidence. I want to smack her across the face, a la Cher in Moonstruck and say, “SNAP OUTTA IT!” Mitchell’s future is wet… working with neoprene, it is messy..sewing is not his forte’ and neoprene is not an easy fabric to work with…. Emily, “Ewok” cowl neck..that she wants to detach and turn into a purse, Tim says it is “too gimicky.” Sandhya…dress, with gold pieces on the front and back, reminds me of my drill team uniform.. it is ugly. Amanda, busy, busy future, efficient, separates. Char, going make a motorcycle vest… women will be breaking fashion rules in the future. I question this because I look around and see a lot of fashion rules being broken in the here and now…. Alexander, making a dress, but it is separates. I think Tim is concerned, lol, he should be…has to be perfect or it will show. His stripes don’t match up and I feel him, I know how that is. He is trying to match angles and angles are my kryptonite.
They are still really skinny, somebody feed these poor girls. Alexander’s top has a uniboob, and Dr. Paul Nassif is nowhere to be found to fix it. Hernan’s dress is barely covering boobs. Angela says she has a “delicate touch”, I think she is delicate and by the end of this experience may well be “touched.” Alexander has to start over. I have had to start over and it is a gut wrenching feeling. But sometimes it goes faster and you are more focused. And sometimes you wish you had never learn to sew to begin with.
They all say in their talking heads they are concerned about so and so…are they really concerned or are they secretly happy it is not them. Angela is cracking me up…she tells the make-up artist “I trust your instincts” ‘ Because I sure as hell don’t trust mine!!’ Oh geeze Angela is doing her typical last minute rush… Last week I felt sorry for her but she is starting to get on my last nerve….and how was she on Wall Street for years if she is only 22, I don’t understand. I thought she said seven, my daughter thought maybe she said several…but still. Math is hard but it just doesn’t add up! I love to see how everything comes together at the end. Mitchell in his talking heads….is growing on me.
The Judges are Heidi, Zac Posen, Nina Garcia, Anne Fulenwider and guest judge Amanda Decadenet…photographer and new reality show star, oh it is the #UNDONE host. The show that is on after PR and I thought was about PR but it isn’t, lol!! I don’t watch, something about her voice…..
I guess this is new this season that they are having anonymous Runway Shows. The Judges don’t know who made what…allegedly.
I liked Kristine, Emily and Char. All looked good and looked well constructed. Mitchell and Fade both had outfits that were kinda cool. Not for everyone. I didn’t like the seams on Mitchell’s waist. Hernan, Amanda, Sam, Kini, and Sean did not impress me. There was nothing new to their designs and Sean should have left off the Mary Poppins hat and picked a better material. Sandhya, Alexander, Korina and Angela all had horrible outfits. IPPHO, they were just ugly. I think Angela’s was really poorly constructed and Sandhya’s was cheesy and cheap looking.
Angela, Sandhya, Emily, Alexander, Kristine, and Sean are either “In or Out.”
~Angela~ Zac thinks it looks like a stewardess from future and he is afraid to be on her plane, Anne thinks it is too short, lapel didn’t work. Heidi likes the idea but it didn’t work. Nina, “Houston we have a problem.” (Is she a riot or what??) Amanda is being nice….there are airlines that are looking for new outfits…. THEY ARE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS!!!!
~Sandhya~ blah, blah, blah, B.S… Nina likes it, refreshing, mix of fantasy and reality. Amanda thinks it is brave and bold. Heidi, not a high score… Zac says it is “weird” in a good way. (his word, not mine, actually, Carole “Writer Girl’s word, not mine) Anne, oxygen tanks…exciting. They are insane!!
~Emily~ Heidi likes the mixture of texture, stunning, loves, loves, loves. Anne likes it a lot. Amanda wants one! Zac thinks it’s Emily’s best work. Nina, of course, not one of her favorites. (Hmmm, maybe there is some truth about who decides the winner.)
~Alexander~ Heidi says it’s an old rag, old blanket. potato sack, doesn’t want to wear it now or twenty years from now. Nina thinks it is a dismal future, plant of the apes. Anne says it looks like the Flintstones. Zac calls it a maternity mom, is worried about the technical side. Nina thinks hard to shoot for editorial and was glad that it wasn’t what he wanted to do. IPPHO, it is just ugly!
~Kristine~ Nina loves the outfit. loves it all. Heidi ‘s favorite look, perfect. Zac thinks it looks polished Anne, thinks it is very Marie Clarie, Amanda, “chic.”
~Sean~ Heidi is disappointed, wrinkly. crooked hem. needs to step it up. Anne wants him to get rid of the hat. Zac likes the hat. Heidi thinks it is bad. Better if you ran out of time and didn’t make the hat. Nina says Mary Poppins also. Angela is thinking “wow, maybe I won’t go home.”
CLOSER LOOK (I am so glad they added this last year.)
Angela…it is really badly made. Of course Zac’s hands are ALL OVER that model, lol. Sean… Zac doesn’t think it is the worst…. Tim thinks it needs to be euthanized….I think he is talking about Angela’s look. But they HATE Alexander’s.
Emily… they think it is not new. Kristine…looks good and they love it. Sandhya… they still love it close up. They are what is wrong with fashion, lol!!
The winner is ………….OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, NO< NO< , nooooo Sandhya!!! OMG!!!
This is ridiculous!!!! The back room is stunned when Sandhya tells them, lol, and so am I…
Sean is safe….
Poor Angela!!!! She is out….. Heidi thinks she is a great designer… Angela has never been this criticized before. Welcome to the real world babe.
Wow, unbelievable. I really am surprised. I hope the whole season isn’t about Sandhya winning, I am not impressed or happy about this.
Here is the link to the looks, check it out and see what you think…
Don’t Be Tardy
S3E5 “Spring Break Forever, Biermanns”
Last week the Biermann bunch was in Destin Florida for vacation. Its’ spring break time and Brielle and Adriana have friends to hang out with in Destin. We last saw Kim and Kroy having a difference of opinion in whether or not Brielle was a good girl when she was out of mama’s sight. (The producer of the show said it was the first and only time the film crew has witnessed an argument between Kim and Kroy.)
Day 4 of the vacation and we join the entire family on a beautiful white sands beach in front of the home they’ve rented. It’s a private beach and they have the place to themselves pretty much. Kim is trying to keep tabs on who is where and Brielle wants to Jet Ski. Kim shoots down the idea because it’s a red flag day (very windy). Brielle claims that Kim is overprotective and she adds that Kroy is strict. She tries the old trick of asking Kroy if she can Jet Ski, after Kim said no. Kroy says, ask your mom. Chuckles. Brielle challenges who wears the pants, taking a shot at her mom and Kim corrects her to say it’s a 50/50 parenting relationship.
Kim and Kroy walk down the beach pushing a stroller with the twins inside. Kim, in a TH said there’s still tension between she and Kroy since the disagreement about Brielle. They don’t disagree often, so it’s kind of weird. Kim said that the thought of Brielle turning 18 freaks her out a lot. I’m starting to get the feeling that Brielle and her mom are a lot alike and are friends too. I notice this happens more frequently between daughters with young mothers, so I looked up Kim’s age and she would have been 18 or 19 when she had Brielle. Back to the conversation on the beach; Kim is still lamenting about Brielle growing up and said that she’s not motived to do this and that. Kroy said it’s because Brielle is not challenged.
At night, the family, Lana and Sweetie go to the Destin Boardwalk, which Kim said was like a redneck riviera. All the girls get in a booth where they film you, on a green screen, with just the head and add tiny graphic bodies. Difficult to describe, but it was very funny and miraculously the music they danced to was ‘Don’t Be Tardy For The Party’. Kim jokes about how she called Sweetie a bobble head before they ever actually were turned into bobble heads. Everyone is laughing, but the girls, who are on their cell phones. Kids.
Kim said she would pay Sweetie $75 to get in the big hamster ball. It’s a big clear plastic ball that you climb into and they use a leaf blower to fill it tight with air, seal it and then they place you in the water. Sweetie, like most folks is falling all over the place inside the ball. Kim and Lana are laughing their heads off and Kim said this is worth $500 in laughs. Ariana is right in between them, looking as if she was waiting for water to boil. Kids.
Later at dinner, Kim pays up to Sweetie and she appropriately tucks it in her bra. Kim is wondering out loud if Brielle will still come join them at the beach even when she’s not having spring break (in the future). Brielle tells her, no, she will be in Cancun next year. What? Brielle tells her, in a how-could-you-not-know manner, that all seniors go to Cancun for spring break (dummy). Kim said in a talking head that her parents were so strict she lashed out and was a bad girl, so she doesn’t want to do the same to Brielle. But this is getting tough! Kim said she’s probably going to need a shrink to let go of Brielle.
Day 5, back at the beach. Kroy is setting up his ultra high powered binoculars on a tripod. Kim said she got the receipt from Amazon in her email and flipped a wig that they cost 3,000 dollars. Wait, so it’s okay to buy a three month old Louis Vuitton luggage, but high powered binoculars to scope out the paparazzi is too much? Kroy’s binoculars pay off. He spies a paparazzi disguised as people enjoying the beach and shouts they’re fucking taking pictures as he takes off running their direction. Kim jumps up and runs with a couple kids. It was as if someone said “fight” on the playground. I don’t know why, other than she was being filmed, that Kim would want to interject herself in this situation, but she did.
It was a man and woman with a beach umbrella that look like regular folks on a day at the beach, but Kroy yanks back a towel that reveals a camera with a mammoth lens. The lens was probably a 18″ long. Kroy is telling them he saw them taking pictures and he wants them to leave. The woman said that it’s not illegal (taking pictures) . Kroy informs them it’s a private beach and they are trespassing, as he points to a sign that says the same. Kim has her 2 cents to add and conversation, at such time she realizes the man has a cell phone camera running and she tries to knock it from his hands. Kroy threatens to call the cops. As the beach paparrazzi leave, Kim realizes she didn’t have her hat on and she had flat beach hair! (Well, bless her heart. I thought that was her real hair put up and it looked damn good for being a windy day on a Gulf Coast beach.) And she laments that her titties were flopping all over the place. Ding dong, she just realized she put herself out there up close to be filmed when she wasn’t put together!
Back at the beach house. Brielle said she wants 6, no 8 friends over. Kroy said, not in the house. On the beach. She acts like she doesn’t know what to do if they were on the beach at night. Maybe Brielle is a good girl, because I would have been thrilled to be told to meet my friends on the beach and not be inside the house with adults! Kim and Kroy go out to eat by themselves. I bet that doesn’t happen often. Kim left Sweetie in charge of checking on the girls. At night, Brielle meets up with a bunch of young people on the beach. Brielle notes their eyes are red. Sweetie eventually makes her way out there and notes the same thing and that they have stinky alcohol breath. Sweetie calls it a sausage party because, she said it was 40 dudes. Actually, there was probably 15 guys and 4 girls. Brielle takes the advice to break it up and she directs them all to another party she found out about down the way, saying her party is over. I don’t know what could possibly classify THAT as a party, but anyhow, they take off and Brielle goes back to the house.
Kim and Kroy come home after being updated via text by Sweetie. They’re surprised to see Brielle and her friend are on the couch already. Brielle said she didn’t know the people on the beach that well and they were doing things she wasn’t interested in. How they drank their alcohol and got wasted ahead of time knowing she would not have alcohol. Brielle did a hard sell of what a good girl she is, as she continued to say that she makes good decisions and was raised by the best. It seems painfully obvious to me that Kim ratted out Kroy for not believing Brielle was on the straight and narrow.
Because we didn’t get enough of Brielle in this episode, next week the family is back home pondering what is the sudden newfound interest Brielle has in cheerleading.
