I Hate Jill Zarin Guest Blogs – Fashion Show / Millionaire Matchmaker
Thank you QuincyIL for this fantastic blog on The Fashion Show!
The Fashion Show Week Two
“Just another Dramatic Asian Queen”
The two teams are taken to South Street Seaport for an exhibition on the Human body. Fashion is about movement and the structure of the external Human body has always been a constant, now Iman wants the teams to examine the inner body and draw their inspiration for the collections and shows from this subject. After taking photos, the teams return and have 45 minutes to come up with their ideas and create the collections.
Team Blue/ House of Nami
The members claim to have ESP while working. The plan is to work from flesh tone/white to red of blood and organs and back to bone white. Their boards reflect the colors, and potential designs that appear to work as one. The members seem to know where they are headed.
Green Team/ House of Emerald Chaos.
Calvin wants to discuss nuclear holocaust and the other members would like to pick a color for the collection. They fail to have anything for Isaac in their 45 minutes of work. Isaac asked them to pick a team leader and Jeffry is chosen. He grew up in a family of 12 so he can work with the devil and saints. They have a budget of 500 dollars for five pieces of their collection.
Twist for the week Issac returns and tells the teams that each piece needs to have something reversible. They all look shocked.
Now, we watch the members of both teams try to create their piece while working with the group members.
Team Blue members really support each other, but Mike (witnessed hundreds of fashion shows all over the planet) is stuck trying to get his concept off the drawing on a piece of paper. He tries to change his cloth with dyes and shrinks it. He tries to use strings to attach to his cloth and then tries to make them fall on fabric to look like strings on cloth…Nothing works including Mike. He has nothing.
Eduardo wants his pleats to look like ribbing and he does a great job. His color choices on his model are excellent. His workmanship is excellent.
Cesar uses ribbons to make the capillary system with a color change from that flows down the dress that fits the collection color theme. The team members are worried about Mike. He is distressed and throws together a make shift mini dress that the model can’t fit in. She holds it up in the fitting for the show design plan session. Mike cuts his piece up, throws it in the garbage and leaves the competition. The other members create a sixth gown with leftover pieces so that their collection will have the six pieces required. They make comments about Mike, but he’s long gone and won’t hear their comments until he watched the show last night.
Team Green members are working individually but the seams of their group are pulling apart. Jeffry tries to deal with Calvin who exits to his own planet and works with amazing speed to create new fashion. His piece melds with Jeffries in design and color. Tamara likes the shape of the body and loves very plain designs which upset the other women on the team. They insist that she add some pleats to her dress and she resists, but gives in at the last moments. That change affects her design adversely.
Hair Make up
This weekly feature shows our advertisers in a good light.
The Fashion Show Blue/ House of Nami
We have designs based on veins, female genitals, and fluffy muscles. This week’s goal of showing inner workings of Human body, check. The color pallet is excellent according to Isaac. There is a basic color theme and variants. The sixth piece created at the last moment works with the collection. They are chosen as the winner this week. Eduardo’s piece is chosen over Cesar’s capillary piece as the winner. Caser said that Eduardo is the silent Peruvian and we have to watch out for him. Eduardo gets an extra hour of work time on the next project and 500 dollars extra if he in the finale.
Green/ House of Emerald
They have five pieces, one with pins in the back and a hem dropping down in front (Tamara.) There color is dark red which actually was close to the color of oxygenated blood. There is a rib/pleating theme in place in many pieces. One looks at the spine and is given credit for an incredible back. The front of this piece had pleating that was out of place and odd. Tamara was encouraged forcefully to change her piece at the last moment. That change affected her design and was the judges pointed that change out as not acceptable. Jeffry and Calvin’s pieces won accolades.
Another Twist in the Plot The judges don’t send a member of the losing team home this week because Mike of the winning team walked out. They realize that Team Blue can’t function so Calvin is sent to Team Green. Team Green has to give up a member and Cesar volunteers after no one else volunteered. This is going to change the dynamics next week.
Millionaire Matchmaker – by Quincy IL
Patti Stanger “Flying DJ’s and a Danielle Staub look alike”
This week begins with Patti wearing a silk (possible cheap satin,) bright pink blouse and a too small dark jacket. I believe the clothes were purchase last year when Patti was twenty pounds lighter because nothing she wears is fitting this season or I just don’t know NYC fashions. We begin the show with Patti screaming at three employees because they offer two female millionaires for the same show. Patti is not pleased with either of the women.
Stacy is Danielle Staub. She is from New Jersey and has four children. She loves to dance (provocatively.) She is an actress (no mention of a gig,) a hostess (no mention of a show or restaurant,) and a model (Patti makes a pose because she doesn’t believe this claim.) Stacy, like Danielle, has dark hair, a great feature for a 46 year old mother of four ranging from 21 to 10 years of age, and a face like a Greek mask. No facial muscles on this mom moves thanks to the magic powers of Botox. I bet fillers help make her look like Danielle too. Stacy doesn’t think she has a problem with men. She has been divorced for 3 years and admits to living off of alimony and child support. She loves to bake, but doesn’t eat the baked foods. Stacy loves to paint and the fine arts. She loves charities too. Patty thinks Stacy is off and needs a session with a crystal on her head. Stacy is told to put her issues in a balloon that is tied to her body with an umbilical cord. At the end, of the discussion where Stacy argues that she has no issues, she refuses to cut the umbilical cord and keeps the balloon full of issues. Patti needs a special date for Stacy and that should make all of the difference.
Sky is an ex super model who works as an international DJ flying from city to city to city every week. She has a fantastic NYC apartment. Sky has dated celebrities. Sky is 39 and because her younger brother had a baby (nice trick if he really did have that baby.) Sky refuses to settle down for any length of time to find a nice stable guy so Patti’s maternal instinct kicks in and she doubts Sky’s ability to be a mom. Oh, Sky like Beth of last week, loves shoes.
Breaking News… a totally straight male mixer at Millionaire Matchmaker and Patti wants to play too. The MM team interview straight guys and Patti has fun asking them to take off their shirts to show their muscles. They bring back one of Beth’s (fake professional poker player from last week) possible dates from last week because he is a mergers and acquisitions expert. We meet Kevin. Wow. He’s a model, host, and the descendent of a god. Patti swoons for Kevin.
This mixer was traditional for Patti’s business. It was in a bar with a two drink minimum. The men tried to connect with the women, but the women were visiting other planets. One artist who plans, in reality, to make art in space, failed to reach the ladies, but he did try to bring them closer to the Earth’s orbit. Sky stated that she felt like meat with cannibals. Stacy thought several made eye contact and she thought the men were interested in her. (Shades of Danielle Staub were in this mixer.)
Patti asked Sky about the men. None of the men in the mixer were good enough for Sky so Patti offers Kevin, the demigod, as her date and Sky accepts. Now, Patti talks to Stacy and Stacy doesn’t like any of the men at the mixer. She asks for Kevin, the demigod who she actually met before he had to leave for the photo shoot in the Hamptons. This turns into the Kevin show. Kevin agrees to date both women (I bet he does a lot of this) and report back to Patti.
Sky breaks the rules and creates the date with Kevin asking him to fly down alone to Miami for an early morning breakfast and noon tennis game is the boiling sun and 100% humidity. She informs Kevin that she really can not slow down and stay in the same place for more than a few days. This is going to be very hard on that baby who will be packed in a little dog carrier and pushed under Sky’s seat on the private jet.
Kevin has to leave that date early and fly to Barbados to meet Stacy for the special date that Patti has planned. The hotel is fantastic. The ride is the mini submarine to look at fish is fantastic. Kevin is fantastic. Stacy has not returned to Planet Earth from Planet Stacy.
Sky, Stacy and Kevin are in the interview with Patti. Kevin is magnificent as would be expected from a demigod. Sky will not change her fabulous life of travel and dating celebrities. Kevin does not want to date Stacy. Stacy believes she has no issues and really thinks she is attractive to men. Patti says that both Stacy and Sky were pains in the ass.
Score…0 and 0
Lynn: Thank you so much Quincy for these GREAT blogs, you do such an amazing job every week with these two shows! Thanks again for Patti’s score, I think we’re now at Zero for 10 potential matches? That “extremely high success rate” is a bit questionable, isn’t it? haha
Until Next Time…
