Gary apologizes for making up a word this week.

Hi!

A lot was going on this week. I loved seeing Brad style the Details shoot. I thought he did a great job. I, too, thought that coat looked like a fortune cookie. But also thought it looked just as good on both of the guys, I did not notice any change in it when Ryan put it on. But I'm sure if I was there I would have been like, "Oh, my god, it works so much better now!"

Watching some the stuff with Brad's dad was hard for me. I wish Brad was closer with his father, and I know that this isn't helped by being so far away. I was urging Brad to see him in person, because I think it's too hard and impersonal dealing with such important matters through email and on the phone. At a certain point you have to sit down together and work it out. Life is too short. And I'm Italian, I think it's important for families to stay close and work their crap out. But that's for Brad to figure out with his father in their own way, I just want to do whatever I can to support him.

Sal is one of my closest friends and he sometimes comes over to cook dinner for us for our dinner parties. He actually offered to come over and cook dinner for Brad's dad and his girlfriend when he heard they were coming, which was super nice of him. He's an amazing cook and the intention is usually for him to teach me how to make something, but after a few glasses of wine I stop paying attention.

Also, I want him to come back and do it again. He's Italian, too, so of course we were totally on the same page in regards to Brad and his dad. The four of us did end up having a lot of fun that night in spite of everything going on with Brad's dad. Thanks for cooking, Sal! And he made a cake!We also started planning our anniversary party this week, and you see we have finally decided to do it at home. Now I know last week you saw me saying I never wanted to do it at home, and I didn't enjoy all the planning and work that goes into it anymore. Oh my god, I was being so dramatic! Brad and I did talk a lot about where best to have the party, and I realized that I ultimately agreed with him. It's much more personal to open your home to all your family and friends. Plus, I'm such a control freak I knew I could control everything more if it was at the house. Steven is a good friend of ours and also an amazing event planner, and I knew he would get what kind of party we wanted.

And we love working with him. I had no idea he thought I had no emotions until our lunch together, but I knew what he was trying to say and thought it was really funny. I was truly stressed though when he told me he thought people were expecting "a moment" from me. I had never even considered that.

Also, in this episode I use the word "unequivocably" which actually is not a word at all. It is unequivocally, as I realized once I heard myself say the wrong word on TV. In the moment I didn't even notice it, but hearing it back I was like, "That's not a word!"

Usually, I sit at home watching reality TV and get frustrated whenever people mangle the English language, create words, and destroy expressions (I believe in this episode I also say "emotional-less" which of course is not a word, but I was joking -- although it doesn't seem that way). So I would like to unequivocally apologize to all the Housewives and bachelors and bachelorettes and teams of people racing around the world who I have ever yelled at through the TV. Today, I too, am one of you.

Next week Milan! I'm kind of excited.

Thanks for watching!

Best,

Gary

Mandy's Big Surprise

Brad was honored to be his sister's best man.

This week’s episode is very special to me. It's very rare that I get to go back to Canada, so I was thrilled to be able to visit my family and take my sister wedding dress shopping. It was such a magical day! Seeing my sister so happy and in love and looking beautiful in so many of the dresses was incredible.

I was not expecting my sister to ask me to be her best man. I was so honored. My sister has been there for me through everything. She was the first one I told I was gay, she was there through my addiction problems, and now it’s my turn to be there for her. She tried on every designer from Marchesa to Oscar de la Renta to Carolina Herrera. We ended up with an amazing gown, but of course my lips are sealed as I would not want to ruin the surprise for the big day.

I love working with J Brand. Ever since I did my first shoot with them (which was on Season 1), I have had the pleasure of working with them on multiple projects. Their ready to wear line is so beautiful, luxurious, and modern. I love working with the clothes and creating amazing looks.

Watching the episode, I couldn't stop laughing at Hannah. It was funny watching the mistakes happen. It was a very straightforward shoot and honestly very uncharacteristic of Hannah to not be totally on it. She is so organized and on top of things usually, so seeing her like this is very funny to me. In the end, the shoot was gorgeous. I was so happy with the final looks and images.

Gary. What can I say...the news that he was moving to London for work made me sad and excited at the same time, but the thought of him getting to work in London on a project that he has created is the most incredible thing. He has supported me through absolutely everything, and so, just as with my sister, it’s my turn to let him shine and return the support he has given me! So much change. So many exciting things happening. All of this and we are moving?! When it rains, it pours.

xx,

Brad
