Just like the news today, a lovely spring day always brings the promise of renewal.
Meet RuPaul's Drag Race hopeful Mizz Cori. When she's not impersonating police officers covered in Boy George makeup, she enjoys TLC songs, re-purposing Star Trek logos as tasteful nipple pasties, resembling Chris March and working that geisha hand fan! And I enjoy her. Excuse her beauty and cast your vote now!
It's a mixed bag today in the land of TV news -- we've got something disturbing (especially if you're Shawn Johnson), something completely obvious (if you've ever watched American Idol), something hilarious/nauseating (depending on how you feel about Padma Lakshmi dripping Thickburger onto herself), and a whole hell of a lot of Isaiah Washington. Because why not?
Ohhh y'all! Project Runway season five premieres tomorrow on Bravo! I don't even know if I'm ready yet! Like, really. After watching some of the clips we have up on TWOP featuring the new cast, I can't help but think this season's hopefuls are a little . . . bland. Like how the majority of them answer the question "Who's the best-dressed person on TV?" with the brown-nosiest reply ever: "Heidi!" And cop to "guilty pleasures" involving, um, watching Top Chef. As Mindy points out, "that's not a guilty pleasure, 'tardos." That's called damned fine television. So far my favorite is Kenley because she wears a hat and says she loves the aesthetic of Blair from Gossip Girl and, honestly, reminds me a lot of last season's Kit. Otherwise it's sort of yawnsville as far as I can tell. No Christian Sirianos in this bunch. (See clip below to relive and revel in his greatness.) But I think I'm always reticent to let go of the ghosts of P-Runs past on the eve of a new one... until I start getting sucked in to the drama and it becomes my life again.
