Tomorrow night we'll be blessed with yet another forum in which to enjoy the darlingness of Tim Gunn, consummate gentleman, sartorial sage and all-around mensch. What I mean is that Tim Gunn's Guide to Style
returns for another season, bravely ridding the world of schlumpy dressers and hot messes one woman at a time, with the aid of a high-tech machine called the Opti Tex (think a real life
version of the Glaminator 11.0
. This season, stylist and boutique-owner Gretta Monahan takes over for Veronica Webb as Tim's partner in crime, and the two let us nosy journalist types bombard them with all manner of questions about the upcoming season and the celebs and fashions they wish would take a long walk off a short pier. Here are the highlights:
I wasn't going to watch the Behind the Seams special, since I was already over this season of Project Runway, but the power of Tim Gunn compelled me.

, VH1 brings you... an untitled matchmaking show starring Antonio Sabato, Jr. looking for love
! The "Fantasy Man" (VH1's words, not mine) isn't looking for much; he just wants a woman who can skydive in an evening gown or re-create steamy love scenes in a soap opera fashion. Which isn't too much to ask, really, it's just terribly specific. I can totally see why he's had so much trouble finding this in the private sector. The show will be filmed like a soap opera, (somehow), with all of the challenges (including the two listed above), based entirely on soap opera conventions. Why all the soaps mania on this show? Because Antonio Sabato, Jr. used to be on General Hospital
, that's why. Now, I hate these shows as much as the next person, but that premise is hysterical. What if all actors based their relationship expectations on their previous roles? I'd sure pity the poor bastard who tries to date Rutger Hauer. Which means only one thing -- it's totally time for more TWoP casting suggestions!
