Thank God for this press tour Tim Gunn is on to promote his new book. Without it, we wouldn’t be privy to all the juicy stories Gunn has up his sleeve.
First, Gunn dished on Anna Wintour‘s inability to take the stairs like a normal human at a fashion show, and just yesterday he regaled us with a tale that titillated us even more. This time the target was our favorite raccoon-eyed starlet, Taylor Momsen. Gunn recently shot a guest spot on Gossip Girl and while his experience with the rest of the cast was just lovely, he had it up to here (hand motions to silvery-gray head of distinguished, classy hair) with Momsen. He explained “What a diva! She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself ‘why are we all being held hostage by this brat?” Ouch! But also, that’s not all!
Gunn continued, saying if wishes he could take Momsen aside and give her a stern talking to. “I’d say, ‘You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.'” He also said that the crew is sick of Momsen too, noting “At one point the director leaned in and whispered to me, ‘this is day in, day out, my life.’ She annoyed the entire crew.”
Tim Gunn: sartorial genius and diva-destroying, truth-speaking hero. We’re holding out hope that one day, he and Anderson Cooper (who is the best thing about Regis and Kelly whenever he fills in forÃ‚Â Regis Philben) will partner up and have the most amazing, tell-it-like-it-is talk show.
