Are You On Twitter Yet?

Are you Biatches up on the Twatter  Twitter yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  Think of Twitter as BookFace  Facebook for anti-social people.  You don't have to comment on your "friend's" new pic or status changes. You don't have to "Buy A Biatch A Drink" or "Send A Ho A Hug".  And you aren't brow-beaten to play games like FarmJewel, MafiaVille, and WarTown.  You also don't have to worry about whether or not to "friend" your mother and your boss.

And when you log into Twitter, an alert doesn't go out to your "friends" saying that you are now logged in - prompting requests to chat.  This is the reason why I don't do BookFace ... I'm "just not that into" some people.

Check out Twatter  Twitter ... and FOLLOW ME.  Because I am absolutely "into" all of my Twitter Ho's.

Get it?!?  Twitter "HOSE"!!!!  ...

Wilmer Valderrama Turns 30


Happy birthday to Wilmer Valderrama, who turns 30 today.  I have always thought Wilmer was cute, although he gives off a definite DOUCHAY vibe.

Project Runway Ep. 3 Recap - "The Gong Show"

Last time on Project Runway, the fashiontestants attempted Potato Sack Chic (like "heroin chic", only more country) - Jay was successful, poor Pamela was not.  And somehow Ping managed to squeak by – despite creating a garment which failed to cover her models basic ASSets.

This week we begin, as always, in the Atlas apartments.  The boys (especially Jesse) are salty about Ping still being around, and on the girls’ side Ping almost forgets her shoes as she leaves the apartment.  Don’t get me wrong, Ping seems like a total sweetheart, but the Producers are milking Ping's wacky for all it’s worth.  I half expect Lifetime to add a ‘gong’ sound effect every time Ping appears onscreen…


And then maybe Grandma can suggest that Samantha take Ping to the school dance, where she’ll meet her “new-style American boyfriend” before driving Grandpa’s AU-TO-MO-BEEEL into the lake.  BIG LAKE.


Anywhoo, the designers head to the Runway to receive their next challenge.  Heidi greets them and asks if they want to meet some of the most iconic fashion designers of all time.  Then Ping says something about Heidi’s Hyena, but SHE MEANT TO SAY ‘HERNIA’.  Oh PING!!!


Sorry, I’m getting carried away.  Heidi tells the designers to go meet Tim – he will give them their challenge.

They end up at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they are met by Tim and 10 mannequins.  These mannequins are sporting “iconic looks” from the museum’s legendary Costume Institute.  Tim informs everyone that they’ll be working in teams of two (groan) to create a ‘high-end signature look'.  And to do so, they will receive a record-high $500 to shop at Mood, and two days to git ‘er done.

Tim picks team leaders, and the team leaders choose a partner.  Here are the teams…

Jay (who has immunity because of his win last week) and Maya
Baby Jesus and Amy
Sassy Anthony and Seth Aaron
Janeane and Ben (who in the HELL is Ben?????)
Mila and Jonathan
Emilio and Anna
Ping and Jesse

Jesse is NOT happy about working with the weird Chinese guy in Mike’s room  Ping.  But Ping says she is excited to be the team leader because she is good at delegating responsibilities.

Before they leave the museum, the designers are encouraged to look at all 10 iconic looks for inspiration.  Seth Aaron doesn’t seem as impressed with the clothes as he is by the fact that there is “no glass, no security, and no Pitbulls” guarding them.  What does he want to do, stuff a Balenciaga in his pants and nonchalantly walk away?

Is that haute couture in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Thank you ladies and gentlemen, I’ll be here all week.  Don’t forget to tip your bartender and your waitress…

Back in the Workroom, the designers begin caucusing.  BTW – I am upset that Tim didn’t actually use the work “caucusing”, because for some reason I love it when he says that word.  The world needs more of Tim Gunn’s “caucusing”.

The designers FINALLY go to Mood for the traditional frantic fabric flurry.  Jesse gets impatient with Ping immediately – she loses her sketch book, almost loses their $500, and then she loses Jesse.  Even Tim has to laugh at her wackiness.  Oh Ping!!!!


Thank you Mood!!!  Back in the workroom, the teams meet and try to come up with a plan.  And immediately Jonathan starts talking stank behind Mila’s back – saying Mila is doing all the thinking, while he is doing all the executing.  Translation:  I BE DOING EVERYTHING!!!  Meanwhile, Mila has nothing but good things to say about Jonathan.

Anthony and Seth Aaron seem to be getting along swimmingly, even if they don’t always agree on specifics.  In fact, Anthony says that based on the color palette Seth Aaron has chosen, they are obviously creating a gown for the Vice President of McDonalds…

Jesse and Ping, on the other hand, are at each other’s throats from minute one.  Ping states that Jesse is “difficult to work with”, although she admits to doing things “less by the book”.  And by “less by the book”, she means “in the most infuriatingly insane way possible”.

Jesse explains that he is just “trying to reign in the crazy”, adding that he doesn’t doubt Ping’s vision, he is just trying to make sure she has one.  Which, if you think about it, doesn't really make sense.  

Day One comes and goes, and Day Two arrives.  After the designers get back into the workroom, Tim enters and asks everyone to “gather round”.  Unlike “caucusing”, “gather rounds” are NEVER good, and Tim informs everyone that they also must create a “Look for Less” ($50 budget) which will be inspired by one of the OTHER team’s looks.  It’s all a little bit confusing, and there was way too much information for me to write down which team was inspired by whom.

Tim reminds the fashiontestants to use their competitor's look as inspiration and NOT to copy it.  With that said, Tim takes one person from each team back to Mood for $50 worth of cheap polyester.

A mini fabric flutter happens at Mood, where Ping (as usual) runs around like a wacky Asian character in a John Hughes (R.I.P.) film.

Back in the workroom, Ping shows Jesse the “very expensive” fabric she has chosen.  Jesse, however, describes it as “a nice hooker kind of shiny synthetic something.”  Oh Ping!!!


Maya is worried because her partner Jay has immunity and is flitting about the workroom and generally slacking.  Jonathan is still talking unnecessary, preemptive stank about Mila.  But Anthony and Seth Aaron seem to get along great – even though the garments they are producing are making me “dubious” (another favorite word Tim didn’t use this week).

Speaking of Tim, he comes in for a visit.  He stops by Jay and Maya, and is worried about their time management.  Next up is Epperson and Qristyl   The Bickersons  Ping and Jesse.  When Tim sees the “very expensive” fabric Ping has purchased for their “Look for Less”, he literally says “Ow!”, like someone just hit him in the head with a gong mallet.  Tim says the fabric looks like “cheap and cheerful wrapping paper”, and Jesse gives Ping an “I told ya so!” look.

Tim visits Anthony and Seth Aaron, and Anthony is at his sassy best – calling Seth “Poppa” and warning him to “Stop acting up in front of company!” (AKA Tim).  Anthony and Seth are the cutest TV couple since Stanley and Helen Roper.

Runway Day is here!  Anthony is “stacked, packed, and ready to attack”.  Jonathan is STILL talking about Mila and her “time management issues”.  Emilio talks stank about The Ropers  Anthony and Seth Aaron’s “horrible” signature look.  And Ping, in a rare moment of clarity, realizes that Jesse is much more concerned with his own personal survival than he is with “teamwork”.  And to that I will add “DUH!”

Tim comes in to plug the show’s sponsors  - Garnier, The House of Gongs, and The Cheap and Cheerful Wrapping Paper Company.  The designers scramble to finish, and Tim does his best imitation of Town Crier … “Ten Minutes!!!” … “Five Minutes!!!”.  Finally, he herds everyone out of the workroom and to the runway.  As Ping is being told to leave the workroom, she asks “We’re leaving?!?  To WHERE?!?” ...  To a really nice place in the mountains where there are people who can HELP you.  Now just put on this nice, snug, white jacket before getting into the padded van...

On the runway, Heidi welcomes the designers and introduces the judges – Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and British designer Matthew Williamson.  Let’s start the show.

The signature looks come down the runway first, followed by the Low Budget Beauties.  Despite the big budgets, the outfits this week look worse (as a whole) than the potato sack looks from last time.

After the show, Heidi tells Baby Jesus/Amy, Emilio/Anna, and Janeane/Ben (who??) that they are safe.

Anthony/Seth Aaron and Ping/Jesse are the teams with the lowest scores – they are told to wait backstage.

This leaves Jay/Maya and Jonathan/Mila as the teams with the highest scores.  The judges really like Jay and Maya’s “Look for Less”, saying their $46 look was better than the $500 look that inspired it.  The judges also focus on the coat Mila was so meticulous in creating.  The same meticulousness that her partner Jonathan complained about for the past 2 days… behind her back.

Side Note:  I follow Mila on Twitter, and she was tweeting during the show last night.  Mila seemed QUITE surprised at Jonathan’s behavior.  Obviously, the designers were there during taping, but they have no idea what the other designers say in the one-one-one interviews or in another room.  I can’t wait for the reunion show, because Mila seems like she don’t take no mess ...

The winning teams are told to wait backstage so the judges can talk to the dregs.  Team Ping has created a signature garment which requires the model to schlep a bunch of fabric around on her arm.  Heaven forbid Ping's client wants to sip a cocktail or hit the buffet line at the company Christmas party – her hands would be too busy trying to keep herself clothed.

Nina immediately wants to see the garment unfurled.  When she sees it, Nina says it’s just a bunch of fabric wrapped around a model – and she’s right.  As far as Ping/Jesse’s “Look for Less”, the judges say it’s “underdesigned”.

Jesse explains that he had to sew everything, in addition to giving Ping “sewing lessons”.  Even their model throws Ping under the bus, saying that she was never fitted for her dress and was completely ignored by Ping.

Over at Team Anthony/Seth Aaron, Anthony explains that they were going for a classic Dior silhouette.  Michael Kors explains that they have succeeded in producing a dress for a Cotillion Party From Hell, or a “Went With The Wind” dress…

I swear, in my 4 seasons of recapping Project Runway, I think I've manage to post that picture at least once per season.  Miss Scarlett! Miss Scarlett!!  Miss Scarlett!!!

The judges also no likee Anthony/Seth’s “Look for Less”.  Nina Garcia, always the diplomat, states that both of their outfits were “really ugly”.  It’s such a shame that Nina is too shy and reserved to tell us how she really feels.

The judges discuss, and the results are in.

Jonathan is in.  Mila is the winner

All Jonathan’s stank was unnecessary.  Jay and Maya are also safe.

This leaves Ping/Jesse and Anthony/Seth Aaron.  Seth is safe, and so is Jesse.

Anthony and Ping remain on the stage, and I am PRAYING the judges do the right thing …

They do … Ping is sent home with a sad bang to the gong


Goodbye wacky Asian lady.  You will be missed.

Next week: someone makes something “shiny, short, tight and tacky”.  What is the challenge, “Make something Heidi will love”?!?  Till next time…

iPad 4 Dummies

I would use clear packing tape instead of metallic duck tape.  Because I'm smart like that...

I WAS Going To Make Fun ...

... of his Très Gay "malt beverage". But THEN I saw what was going on in those swim trunks.  HELLO!!

Project Runway - Tonight!

Tonight on Project Runway, Tim Gunn and the fashiontestants return to familiar territory - the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Based on the picture above, I'm assuming they'll be visiting the museum's fantastic Costume Institute for inspiration.

This week's challenge will force the designers to work in teams of two ... [cue 'Dramatic Chipmunk/Prairie Dog/Gopher']...

dun dun DUN!!

Will there be under-the-bus throwing amongst teammates?!?  We shall find out tonight.  Look for my Episode 3 recap to be posted sometime tomorrow afternoon.

I Wear My Sunglasses At Night

I generally like to post pictures with an unobstructed view of the model's face/eyes - but sometimes a guy wearing sunglasses is almost as good.  Any faves?

I'm Getting A Visitor!

Yes BunnyNation, after two failed attempts (one thwarted by a hurricane and the other by a busy schedule) I finally get the opportunity to hang out with Dust Bunny Dan from Chicago!!  Dan is in NYC on business, and has decided to extend his stay over the weekend for some boozing and go-go fondling with little 'ole ME!

As a result, posting will be extremely light over the weekend because I will be drunk.  The plan is for me to finish my Project Runway recap tomorrow afternoon, pick Dan up, have some drinks, and end up at The Urge Lounge (AKA "The Urges") for the nightly "show"...

After all, Dan and I are both big supporters of "the arts" and we plan on doing WHATEVER WE CAN to help these "artists" ...

Strange But True

Madonna - Queen Of Pop MEGAMIX, by Robin Skouteris

I saw this great Madonna compilation video over at Wicked Gay Blog (which is an awesome site, BTW - you should check it out).

Madonna truly IS the undisputed Queen of Pop.

More Dragulator Divas...

The Bloggie-nominated drag queen  blogger Howard (above).

Next, we have my dear sister, the always glamorous Mistress Maddie...

And, finally, one more of yours truly - "Miss Spent Youth"...

To find YOUR inner Diva, check out the RuPaul's Drag Race Dragulator HERE.

UPDATE:  We have a new addition!  Dust Bunny Tim sent us a picture of the alluring "Lady Peluso"...


Here is the other alter ego of Aurora Briar, this is Miss Ophelia Balzak (her maiden name was Butz)...


State Of The Union - What Did You Think?

I thought it was a great speech.  President Obama said, "OK, Biatches - governing is hard, but let's GOVERN!".  And the "Party of No" sat on their hands and smirked.  Gross.  They wouldn't even cheer for the payback of bank bailout funds to the American people. The Party of No = The Party of Entitled Rich White Guys.

During the speech, did you see Supreme Court Justice Alito shake his head and mouth the words "Not true" when the President called them out for their recent election finance decision?  "Activist judges" indeed...

Justice Sotomayor should have smacked him.

What did YOU think?  Did you even watch?

What Is The Gayest Thing YOU'VE Ever Done?

Personally, the gayest thing I ever did was attend a "Hats and Pearls" Potluck Dinner at a friend's apartment when I lived in Pennsylvania.  Yes, Biatches, we each brought a covered dish and we dined in our fanciest hats and most glamorous strands of pearls.  OMG (I just remembered) - then, after most people had gone, a few of us ...

Oh yeah, THAT was the gayest night of my life...  What about YOU - what is the gayest thing you've ever done?

They Wear Short-Shorts

I wonder if he realizes that he's "hanging a peach"?!?

You young Biatches might not remember the Nair "Who Wears Short-Shorts?!" commercials, but every time I think of the word 'shorts', this jingle runs through my head...
