Real Housewives of Atlanta - I'm a Shereé fan!

I don't usually watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta but since it moved to Sundays at 10pm, I find myself watching it more than I usually do. What? No Walking Dead? No thanks...
Last night was the confrontation of Shereé and "Dr" Tiy-E Muhammad. All I want to know is why? Why did Shereé waste her time with that no-good, wannabe fame whore asshole? After last season, I wasn't really that big of a Shereé supporter but now, I feel bad for her because she wasted her precious time with that jerk off. Shereé can do a million times better, so why would she even bat an eyelash at this guy?!
He disgusted me when Shereé was walking up and asked him, "What are you looking at your watch for?" and he replied with a sleazy answer: "Because it's on my wrist and I can". Who the FUCK says that shit?! Then they have the lovely conversation about how he's all Sad Panda because he hasn't met her kids yet. Boo hoo. But he patronizes Shereé with, "Can I finish? You're not letting me finish". I've been there. Being interrupted. It happens ALL THE TIME. But - if you're sitting there talking shit and making up excuses, I'm going to interrupt you and so will anybody else. That's why I'm not even mad that Shereé was interrupting him.
Watch below:

After all that, thank God she cuts him loose because she doesn't need that. One of the things I appreciate about Shereé is that she's independent. She doesn't need a man to feel validated. She doesn't need a man to enjoy the simple things. And even though it's about the money...(come on, who are you kidding here?) I can respect Shereé for setting the bar super high - especially when it concerns her personal life and her family. favourite housewife of them all is still Kandi :D

Love and kisses,

Heidi + Mondo's dress = together at last!

That fierce German wonder woman finally wore THE dress!!!

LOVE IT!!! She looks lovely! Without the sleeves, it looks better! It doesn't look so Dee Lite-ish - which is good. And, although I really wanted her to run off the runway, rip it off the model and come sashaying out to show M Kors that Mondo is fucking fabs during the finale, she waited for a red carpet event. I love you, Heidi! Heidi and Mondo forever!!

Love and kisses,

The Walking Dead - Welcome to my nightmare

I feasted my eyes on a lovely show called The Walking Dead. No, I did NOT watch it on Halloween night. No, I did not watch it the day after or even the week after. I just watched the first episode on Sunday. Morning. At 9am. After sunrise. Why did I put it off for so long? Oh, you know...because a zombie apocalypse is what fuels my nightmares and keeps me awake at night.
It's true. I had a dream about 12 years ago that was almost too real. And what did it involve? Zombies. It was fucked up. I worked at a day care at the time and the kinds kept trying to show me their new talent: biting people. But it was wrong! Biting was wrong! There wasn't a song yet but we all knew biting was wrong! Except for that day. Biting was okay that day. Why? They were undead! They wanted brains. My brains! And this one kid showed me his cool talent: he tilted his head and his brain fell out. And he laughed. When I got to work, I was swarmed by children - just like in my dream! But the only cool tricks they showed me were tying their shoes or how they learned to draw robots. Phew.
After that, I was never the same. It could come at any moment - some super secret government thing gone awry. Something along the lines of Cabin Fever but instead of a flesh eating virus - the hunger...for brains! 28 Days Later! Dead Alive! 28 Weeks Later! Zombieland! They're all nightmare fuel - plus many, many more. And my old man should know - he should be considered an "expert" in the ways of the zombie. But he can't answer this simple question: Why do they want brains?
There have been many times my friend and I have tried to figure it out. My old man joined in on the debate and it seems as though they want our brains for the electrical impulses. At least, that's what we came up with. But why? They're the walking dead. What do they care about the electrical impulses in our brains? If they need them, does that give them some kind of expiration date/time? Like, if they don't have brains after a certain amount of time, do they die (again)? Do they need the electrical impulses to feed their dead bodies? Would that even matter at that point? Why the brains? Why the flesh? Because it scares us? To shock us? Who knows. So, we turned to more research and ended up reading up on zombie powder. It's Voodoo related, so I had to stop. That's where I draw the line. But that's also how you know it's possible. The research has been made. The evidence is there. And it's fucking scary.
So why would i be so amped to watch The Walking Dead? Well............not only does it take place in Atlanta (w00t!) but I had my 4th "is it real or fake when I wake up" zombie dream. They don't happen often but when they do, it's scary as shit. So I figured why not face my fear and watch a show about the things I dream of? Why not, right? Face my fear. So, we watched it. My old man was so happy that I was watching it, btw. And guess what? I was still scared. With as awesome as the show is and how the safest place (kinda) was Atlanta, I was still scared out of my mind. Could I handle the graphic novel? NO WAY. The whole time I was watching the show, I kept bracing myself for the worst. Zombified kids? Check. Zombies coming out of nowhere? It didn't happen as often as I kept thinking it would but still. Check. Swarms of zombies? HOLY MOTHER OF GOD CHECK TIMES INFINITY. And that was enough for me. Good thing that was the end of episode 1. I don't think I could've handled more than that. My soul feels heavy and dirty. I'd love to watch the show - especially since our lead character is on the hunt for his wife and child and we end up knowing where they are and it's a FUCKED UP situation. But my soul can't take that kind of beating on a weekly basis. I can't watch my nightmare come to life in the city I live in on a weekly basis. I'm not strong enough. Who in their right mind would still ride their horse into a city when it looks all fucked up? Who???

I know it's typical Atlanta traffic and all but still - it's going AWAY from the city... (bad joke)
Anyways - it's a great show. Too bad I can't watch it. One day, I won't be so scared of zombies. I hope that day will be before the zombie apocalypse and I'll be prepared (hopefully). Until then, I'll do more research...

Sweet dreams

PS - I've also thought about possibly looking into being an extra for season 2 (if it's still in Atlanta). Maybe I could face my fear that way? Or maybe that would be the worst day ever since I'll be in the middle of my nightmare. Still a possibility. I could look into it...

Project Runway Season 8 Finale: Um...did I hear you correctly about who won? Are you on drugs?!

Because I've been really busy at work, I haven't been able to talk about the DISASTER that was the Project Runway season 8 finale.





We all thought Mondo had it in the bag, hands down. His runway show was downright fashion current AND fashion forward. So what the hell, Michael Kors? What the hell is wrong with you? This was the first time wearability has been an issue during Fashion Week and as far as I'm concerned, Mondo's was the MOST wearable. Andy's was second. Gretchen will not even be considered. Why? Take a look...

I see Gretchen ovbs thinks granny panties are fashion forward...especially since she used them not once, twice but THREE TIMES

I guess Gretchen was also appealing to Michael Kors' inner Iceman using Aviators in her styling...

These models look like they're about to go on a safari with the rest of the models...

This poor model looks like she's wet herself...

This poor model looks like she's wearing a pair of sparkly diaper shorts...

Not for nothing, I think the jewelry was wonderful. I had a sneaking suspicion that her Mom had made it (since she said her mom made jewelry a few episodes back) but all she said was that she sketched it out and had it forged for her. Remember that sentence

Andy's was such a HUGE departure from what he had been doing all season. It was kind of awesome to see him outside of his comfort zone but it was a little hard to watch because he was outside of his comfort zone. It felt like Andy's collection was damned if you do, damned if you don't. He was damned if he made his signature "Donimatrix" look and he ended up being damned because he didn't make it. I thought it was well thought out but so far away from all his other looks...

I'm not sure how I feel about this look but I do know this: I'm probably the only person who LOVES his headpieces.

This one was a little matronly for my tastes...

Okay - together, this look is blah but could you imagine the top and cropped jacket with some jeans? Adorbs!

I wasn't a big fan of this outfit but this was my favourite headpiece

Okay - we said this outfit looked like a hair tree was growing out of her crotch (we were hoping Kors would say something about the crazy crotch for drinking game reasons but he didn't. And that wasn't the first time Kors let us down that night...) but I guess he minimized the hair tree with a cover up in the same fabric???

Loved it. Simple but still a statement piece

I loved the top here but I could've gone without the pants

Loved it. Very Gossip Girl-ish. Also, my second most favourite headpiece

I liked the weaving on the top but I'm not a fan of that green

Again, not a fan of the green BUT this dress was pretty and I would love to see it in other colours. To me, that would be a fabs little black dress

And last, but certainly not least, Mondo's collection. A lot of his clothing was also very Gossip Girl-ish but I love it all as complete outfits and as separates. I also really like his headpieces. One thing that he made sure to mention was that he made, hand-beaded and screenprinted ALL of his looks himself. To me (as a crafter), that means the world to know that he did all of that himself. It just adds a little something extra knowing that he put in the time and effort for every piece.

This is very Gossip Girl and I would LOVE to see it on the show

Can I just say that I LOVE his painted leather technique?

For my body type, I think I would make a total mess out of this outfit. BUT - if I wore it as separates, total WIN. And I would get more than 1 outfit. Double WIN.

LOVE THIS. Total Gossip Girl

LOVE THIS! If I had the money, I'd commission Mondo to make this dress for me (in my size)

Same thing: If I had the money, I'd commission Mondo to make this dress for me (in my size)

Love the pants. For me, these would be great separates

Again - Loving the painted leather technique AND I really like the "groove is in the heart" polka dot pattern as a shirt

This would look great paired with pants. I'm not daring enough to be able to begin to pull this off as a dress. I love the colours and colour blocking on this little number

Okay - the Lady Miss Kier dress...what can I say about this? I'm not the biggest fan of it but it was very clear that Heidi loved it. In fact, her case for this dress was so strong that we were expecting her to run backstage, rip it off the model and come back to rub it in Kors' and Nina's faces!! I'm half expecting her to go to a red carpet even wearing it sometime soon. If she does, she's my shero

There you have it. The weirdest Project Runway finale I've experienced in a while. I'm not quite sure what else you can say about it - it's one of those things you have to see for yourself...

Until next season!
Love and kisses,
