Andy's loving Bravo's newest diva and can't wait for "The Fashion Show" premiere tonight.

on Nov 9, 20100

 

Tonight after "The Millionaire Matchmaker" we will welcome Iman to Bravo as she makes her co-hosting debut on "The Fashion Show" with Isaac Mizrahi. I love this woman, and her passion and enthusiasm for the show helped us to really elevate and improve it from season 1. She is also a fierce diva who tells it like it is and minces no words.  

Another couple of things I love about the new season of TFS include Isaac's mentoring -- which is valuable and fun all at once, and the fashion shows themselves, which are bigger and better than anything we've seen on a fashion competition. I will let you be the judge when you check it out tonight after Patti does her bidness at 9. 

Last night I went to a book party for Jessica Seinfeld's new one DOUBLE DELICIOUS. The food at the party -- all from the book -- actually was double delicious. The tomato soup was KILLER, and I guess I reacted to it with a little too much surprise to Jessica who, in her inimitable way, gave me a "What'd you expect, gross food!?" kind of a reaction. We cracked up. It was a nice party for a book that I know is going to be a smash hit. Maybe this is the book that will teach me how to cook. She makes it seem pretty easy. 

I am zooming up Sixth Avenue today, no longer a slave to 8th. I am FREE! My trainer kicked my lily white arse this morning, so I am in recovery mode. I need to get myself together -- it's going to be a busy day! Have a good one!

Adding Iman to the lame Fashion Show was brilliant. She is such a divine diva. So far, the designtestants are nothing special in terms of their supposed mad skills. I totally get the inclusion of the delusional Calvin, who is a legend in his own mind. He'll be kept on for antagonistic appeal = conflict within the ranks. Isaac is the poor woman's Michael Kors, dahling. He's banal and almost invisible.

I liked it a lot and thank heavens the designers are talented ! Iman is a bit too militant and I do not care for the silly phrases they use.. "Don't move" C'mon, couldn't they have come up with something better than that?

Iman scares me too! She is like an angry goddess spewing thunder and lightning.

I do love the show and the class of designers on the show.

Ok, it's a hard act to follow Heidi, Tim, and Nina and I think your show has a long ways to go. I think not talking about all of the designers in front of the camera was a big mistake. We want to hear all the "dish." Project Run way is so much better now that they added the half hour of "dish" to the show.

Having said that, and after looking at next week's previews, I love how you are "Petticoat Junctioning" Bravo! What I mean by that is using all of the Bravo characters on all of the various shows. CBS was genius in doing that and it makes for such an enhanced "loyalty program" among your Bravo viewers. My partner and I have been talking about Bravo needing to do this for a long time and it just makes sense. The two people you need to add to Bravo in some capacity are Joan Rivers and Cathy Lee Gifford. They need to be heard and seen on Bravo because they are unfiltered and hilarious. At least get them both on your show after a BH Housewives episode to "break it apart."

Good job! Steve and Guy from Orange County, Ca.

who'd have ever thunk it? Isaac Mizrahi the straight guy on a show!! Even the hetero designer was more gay. I am also a little afraid of Iman now. I loved loved loved loved the new show. I have always loved Isaac {even a little tipsy on WWHL} and more so now. He was FABULOUS The winning design team was the winning design team and the designs were lovely. I CAN'T wait till next week.

Loved Isaac on WWHL! You are right he is a special guy. Iman is a icon and she is a tough cookie. Just what is needed on TFS and It allows Isaac to be who he is. Can't wait for the show tonight!!
