Martyn jaunts seemingly straight from Mexico to NYC to deal with the apartment of Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon. Did I say apartment, because I meant mall compound of Tamara Mellon. The patio could basically hold every New York apartment I've ever lived in seven times.
Martyn decides to display the shoes from the ladies Choo campaign as pieces of art -- and rightly so -- they're covered in solid gold (which is now all over Martyn's fingers). So he gets some acrylic boxes made and . . . .
Please G-d, get in there. . .
I could watch the scene with Martyn trying to put the box over the shoe for hours and hours. It is perhaps a great metaphor for some days in life. Sometimes you in the sex pit with Tamara Mellon -- and some days the 10 cent acrylic shoe shadowbox you bought doesn't come in in the right size.
In the end Martyn gets the properly sized boxes and Tamara gets the pleasure of looking upon her Midas touched shoes and bags before wandering to her veranda and laughing at what a giant success she is. Frankly I'd just display them on the veranda to really show the sun who is boss. Look upon the shinny greatness that is my Marilyn Minter collabo, sun! What now?
Sweet Nathan is barely with us this week, except to exchange chairs with Mary. Those black, French armchairs with the stencil back are worth a life servitude for me. As a matter of fact if you'll excuse me I've got to get to chain gang detail now. . .
What did you guys think? Were the floors too Willy Wonka? Did you need an everlasting gobstopper to calm you down after? Do these snozberries taste like snozberries? Who's your favorite decorator? Why don't you tweet about it?
Mary is right - people don't know what they want or like hence the deplorable decorating everywhere. However, that desk is an amazingly, expensive, unusable workspace probably perfect for someone who doesn't work. The Client will look nice sitting there, though. Question for Andy Cohen's poll: Who is the most obnoxious, obscenely rich client? Before the "Housewives" franchise, I wouldn't have believed this nonsense.
Funny and sweet summary.
I think Ross/JAM are the unheralded stars of this show--interesting to film how a RL stressed-out couple makes (or doesn't) working together...work. Sorta. Plus, couldn't imagine a cuter gay couple. Nice of them to allow BRAVO to put their love story up for viewer scrutiny.
Enjoyed the designs showcased in this and other epis, even though I know zip about ID and less about cooking. (The fact that I love MDD suggests that BRAVO has hit upon another appealing formula that tickles its audience. I adore all the BRAVO quasi-reality stars, going back to Project Runway, all except Top Chef, although my 'disaster in the kitchen' husband follows Tom and Padma faithfully.)
Please offer another season of MDD--even it's just a rehash of scenes the editors didn't use in Season 1. I can see how the shows are scripted, but whatever--it's still extremely entertaining.
BEST SHOW ON BRAVO!! It's so great to have a show where the cast actually likes and respects each other. What an entertaining cast of characters. Thanks for giving them the spotlight they deserve!!!
This is definitely a great addition to the Bravo line-up. The decorators are hysterical and they seemingly get along with each other and compliment one another, so it's totally refreshing and fun to watch. They have big name moneyed clients, so this is definitely a must watch!
I love this show! Glad Bravo came up with something fresh. The Housewives are getting old although I do have my favorites. I actually look forward to this so much more. Good Job! I cant even save I have a favorite on this show, they all bring something great!!!!
