Josh Flagg gives you some back story on his fabulous Grandma.

on Aug 11, 2008

My grandma: What can I say about my grandma? She was hysterical! You may not have been able to tell, because she was sitting down, but she is in fact less than 5 feet tall. Many people who saw the preview said Bravo should do a spin-off on just her. So get excited -- that is not the last you will see of her on the show. Many people, after watching the preview, have asked me what my grandmother has to do with polyester. Just to clarify things: Polyester was invented by the British during World War II. My grandmother was an underground spy in Europe during this time. The material was originally called Polyamine, and it is a synthetic fiber the Germans used to make parachutes out of; in other words, it was not a fabric people were wearing. My grandmother took the material and made it into a wearable fabric. This was in 1967. With the cooperation of Dupont, my grandmother marketed the fabric and polyamine officially became Polyester, and came to life.

I think the show is only going to get better and I am very interested to see what happens...
