Oh, those two:
Three weeks earlier, Tim Gunn, Parsons fashion design chair and the show’s mentor, had visited [Project Runway Contestant Jeffery] Sebelia in L.A. and declared, “He had a lot of work to do.” Word reached [Project Runway Contestant, Mother of Six, and avoider of Sweat Pants and Mini Vans Laura] Bennett, whose mother had met and become friendly with Sebelia’s mother. Upon seeing Sebelia’s miraculously finished collection, Bennett told the producers she believed Sebelia had outsourced his sewing—which would disqualify him. “His collection was very ambitious,” says Gunn. “I wasn’t born yesterday.” Adding fuel to the fire was Sebelia’s rather unfinished style of construction throughout the show. “We took the accusation very seriously, and we did a very intense and thorough investigation,” says Gunn. Bravo would not allow him to reveal the resolution.Verrrrrrrry innnnteresting. And tomorrow is the final challenge. Juicy!
