The third installment of Project Runway is spiralling to a finish, with a winner being announced next week. But some of the season’s controversies have still not died down, primarily the one involving Keith Michael (long-awaited lovechild of Jude Law and Greg Kinnear). Early in the season, Keith was disqualified for bringing pattern-making books with him, something PR producers claimed was expressly forbidden in the official rules.
In last week’s reunion show, Keith came to his own rescue (because, apparently, no one else was going to), accusing PR producers of framing him and planting the books under his bed. Ah-likely ah-story. And thanks to reader roxdy who dropped yet more Jude Kinnear insanity! In an open letter to the Blogging Project Runway blog, JK actually does do a good job of defending himself, first by defining exactly what kind of books he had — not patterns themselves, rather explanations for how to measure things… which still sounds fishy. He goes on to walk us through the casting process, where producers thoroughly searched each contestant, removing any and all items considered banned. JK insists he was used as a pawn in the chess game known as Great Television. And frankly, after reading his letter… we kind of… agree with him. And you?
ps His real last name earns him some serious street cred.
