Would someone be willing to upload this to youtube? Also there are some bonus videos on the bravotv site that I'd love to see.

It's not crucial, but it would be really nice if someone would help out the fans with macs!

thank you.

chloe is a nice person. i would have told that natalie or whatever her name was to go to hell. people shouldn't shoot their mouths off if they've only watched the one show before they had to do an interview or if someone gave them some cards to read off of. what an idiot. what an awful thing to say to the winner of pr. i wonder what jay or santino would've said. and for the comment above, there is supposed to be bonus stuff on the season 2 dvd. i don't know if it's the same stuff on the bravo site or different or more or what.

Nethra, my video source says that she's having problems uploading for some reason. She's working on it, though! We haven't forgotten!

Laura K said...

OKay, it never fails that these network interviewers have no idea what questions to ask. You can just tell they haven't seen the show and they only have a little card with some hints. What kinds of questions would WE like to ask Chloe?

Laura K said...

Oh I thought of a couple! With eight girls in the house, how many bathrooms did you have? And how many sewing machines? Did you share clothes with any of your sisters? Did your mom teach you to sew? Did she teach all of the girls? Are there any of your sisters who HATED sewing? What is your boyfriend's name? How long have you been dating? Are you still living with your mom? Are you thinking about purchasing a home now? Chloe, we really loved watching you work, would ever consider making a teaching video that shows your draping and pattern-making techniques? Do you keep in touch with any of the other designers? Will you be at Emmett's Grand Opening party on the 17th? Did you do anything special to celebrate your win? Were you surprised to win? Were you exhausted? Do you keep in touch with Grace? When is the Elle photo shoot? Which issue will you be featured in? Okay - that's a start...

You know, Laura, every now and again I start to think that maybe you are not the most addicted person to this show. Maybe Janthe danFan or praddicted or nsa or any of the rest of us loonies may have surpassed you in our unfettered PR mania.

And then you make a comment like the one above. And I know all is right in the world again :)

sarah said...

Just an answer to one of the above questions-Chloe is the only one of the 8 sisters who lives with her parents. Tim Gunn said that in his podcast for Finale Part 1.

The Scarlett said...

Okay, Laura, you totally need your own Project Runway interview show in which you ask the questions we all want to know (even if we haven't thought of them yet). OR you could do a re-cap rundown show offering a panel of the top PR recappers commenting while watching each episode. Now THAT would be some good televison.

praddicted said...

Laura, you are too funny!! You should be an official PR interviewer, perhaps you should be doing auditions!!

I did think of one question though-Why did you try out for PR instead of Sydney (sp? How do you guys work together and is she toying with trying out for Season 3? That would be sooo cool.

Okay, that's 3 questions.

praddicted said...

What made you choose Diana for the final runway challenge? What qualities stood out for you?

Laura K said...

Those are great questions. Why did Chloe choose Diana? It's amazing that the three finalists pretty much chose the most popular "aufed" contestants. Like the producers were offering up a consolation prize to the viewers. "Oh, you miss Nick? You miss Andrae? We'll toss you a crumb..."

Next season we should keep a running tally of "If I could interview so-and-so on national television, here's what I would ask:" Then whenever anyone has the opportunity to do so, they can just come here for our valuable assistance!

Tbone said...

To praddicted: Chloe has mentioned in earlier interviews that she is the only one of her sisters that is serious about sewing/designing. Sydney only helps with the PR and marketing aspects of Lot 8. And even though her Mom does help some in the store, it is pretty much a one woman operation. That might have to change now.

I've been biting my lip about some of the comments I have read here and elsewhere concerning her getting help from all of sisters on the final collection. That simply is not true.

praddicted said...

Thanks for the info, TBone, I wondered if she was more on the business end, it did seem so. My curiosity about her was raised because Tim seems to be enchanted with her and (I assume that was her on the finale) she seems cool, very passionate as well and a little edgy. Would have been fun to contrast her style with her sister, KWIM?

I agree with you-I was surprised that some jumped to the conclusion that her sisters helped-she can work like a demon when she's inspired and it was a little sad that some had to attribute her success to something other than talent. That irks me for any of the designers. Hope my post didn't imply that I felt that way!

praddicted said...

I'm being so random this morning-too much coffee, LOL!!

I think that Nick, Andrae and Diana were the 3 that were the best combination of designers, skilled sewers and cool under pressure. I was surprised that Daniel did not pick Andrae but he had a lot of sewing to do and perhaps Nick was better in that skill set? I think Chloe would have picked one of the other 2 also, but she was the 3rd one to choose.

Lordy, lordy, I've thought about this too much....

Laura K said...

No more lip-biting TBone. we count on you to always rise to Chloe's defense!

Mimi said...

I wonder who Santino would have picked if he had to pick third and Andrae and Nick were gone...certainly not Diana or Emmett or Guadalupe or Marla or Zulema. Daniel Franco? Can't see that either, maybe John? What do you think?

Christina said...

I have no idea who Santino would have chosen if both Nick and Andrae weren't options. Definitely not Daniel Franco. At that point, they did not have their truce (read Daniel F's blog on myspace). I could see him picking John. The problem with John's one and only design on the show wasn't that it wasn't made well, but that it was just too simple.

Who knows? I'm just glad it happened the way it did. Santino and Andrae were my favorites, so I was so glad when he picked him. I finally got the 'Andrino' or 'Santidrae' collaboration I had been hoping for. I thought their 13th design was beautiful.

Tbone said...

Good question mimi! I could see Santino picking Raymundo in that scenario...

Bonnie said...

As a journalist by trade, it never ceases to amazing me when major news anchors try to interview people without having a clue about what to ask. Sheesh. I think Chloe handled it well though... She looks really happy.

nsa said...

It looks like Andy's Blog interview of Chloe answered some of the lingering questions!
