For those of you who watch Project Runway, you’ll probably be interested to hear that Jeffrey Sebelia, whose attitude and (lack of?) skills have drawn the ire of more than a few fashion loving homos, came under fire toward the end of filming.
It seems that fellow contestant Laura Bennett accussed Sebelia of cheating after his final collection came out looking a little to seamless. Tim Gunn (pictured), everyone’s favorite monotonous mentor, had traveled to Cali to check out Sebelia’s progress and found it a bit rough. His mother, in turn, told Bennett’s mother about Gunn’s statements. So, when Sebelia showed up with a polished collection, Bennett got a bit suspicious, leading to an investigation into Sebelia’s methods and possible manipulations.
New York Magazine‘s Jada Yuan writes:
…Bennett told the producers she believed Sebelia had outsourced his sewingâ€”which would disqualify him. â€œHis collection was very ambitious,â€ says Gunn. â€œI wasnâ€™t born yesterday.â€ Adding fuel to the fire was Sebeliaâ€™s rather unfinished style of construction throughout the show. â€œWe took the accusation very seriously, and we did a very intense and thorough investigation,â€ says Gunn.
Tim Gunn: Private Investigator? Hmmm, we smell spin-off gold!
