A Note From Daniel Franco
This is probably not worth writing about, however...
I am trying to just laugh off the awkward editing-gag-gone-lame between Me and the Lovely Heidi Klum "I Love you" train wreck moment but....
As a man who believes in priciples & honor, I must let it be known that I would never ever approach a happily married woman with any awkward intentions at all. It does not match up one bit with my ethics.
When I said "I Love You Heidi.." It was because she said something incredibly complimentary about my lingerie collection, not shown on the special, and I meant it as a great term of affection, respect and admiration. She said something that was to me, a great validation of my work. (Confidentiality agreement kicks in now.)
Heidi Klum created Project Runway, an amazing forum for fashion designers. So I consider her a "patron saint of the arts". I meant "I Love you Heidi", as a...Thank you and I look up to you, for the opportunites she created for all of the artists on the show.
I think maybe the producers wanted a good laugh like the one in the Lingerie episode during the presentation of our groups to Heidi. Remember the 70's guitar in the background as I say, "I want to show you something beautiful?" But this time the editing seemed slightly rushed, they got this episode out in 2 weeks...amazing actually. As compared to 6 months for the Lingerie episode.
So, there it is...my official response to that.
By the way I LOVE ALL OF YOU TOO!!!!!!!!!! With No awkward editing in sight! Direct.
