Backstage, it looks like Stanley is still working. He says that he doesn't like to work this way. Oh really? There's a commercial break and, seriously, if this reunion show doesn't satisfy with at least some explanation of some behaviors, I honestly don't even know. Stanley comes out and thanks Lovie and Stephen. He says that his collection is American Opulence. You're setting yourself up to get some Michael Kors smack down with that name. The show begins and everything is pretty. I think the cuffs on his pants were maybe too high and his skirts are still too long. He is thrilled watching from backstage though. Tim tells him that it has gotten much sexier. The hair and make-up is fantastic. The skirts should be shorter though and there are too many jackets. The skirt and top that Nina wanted separated are here and the skirt is still TOO LONG. Hike it up! His coat dress still looks vintage, though the metal belt is hot. I like his white dress with embroidery and it seems like the only dress with an appropriate hem. His final look, the tea length gown, is a mistake. Fabio and Melissa are like shaking their heads as they look at it.
After the show, Michelle and Stanley hug backstage. Kristen Chenoweth says that she is a hard audience and that she liked a lot of the pieces. Marilu Henner says that each successive piece in Patricia's collection made her happier and happier. Well, of course Marilu Henner would be Team Patricia. Does anyone remember that fitness book she wrote in the late '90s? Lady does NOT like dairy. She thinks we're all addicted. Like, if you want ice cream, you have a freaking ADDICTION. Also, she said that something was wrong with you if your poop didn't float. I mean, these were some pretty strong allegations and I was susceptible to them and I'll just say that I spent several years of the early '00s wondering if I would end up a dairy-addled victim of non-floating poo dead in a ditch somewhere. Anyway, crazy textiles and crazy dairy scary. These things seem to go together to me. Sammi from The Jersey Shore liked all of them but one really stood out for her. Designer Ramy Sharp liked Michelle's collection. We see her hug Wally backstage. Gabriel and Margeaux are hugging on Patricia and then Alexa Ray Joel tells us that she loved her headpieces. Some lady, Siggy Flicker, who is apparently a "love and life expert," tells us that Stanley's collection was their favorite. I think she should call herself, Siggy Flicker, City Slicker. The caliber of people commenting this year is not that great, though I love me some Chenoweth. Dmitry is there and says that Michelle is going to win.
