Wow!!!! No I can’t see in the future but somehow I knew I was going to be teamed up with Daniella for the Mini Challenge and the Elimination Challenge as well and we were. During the Mini Challenge she was extremely pushy until she saw that none of her ideas worked on the type of body our intern had. She was larger than the other girls with no waistline. I decided to make a piece of fabric into a cardigan press when we finished she convinced me to do the talking so I agreed. When Laura Brown and Becki Newton asked who decided to make the dress she told them we both decided on it. I knew then to keep my ears and eyes open because she always wanted to make herself look good. The Elimination Challenge started and ended in a mess as well. Unwilling to compromise and being just plain selfish, Daniella’s attitude had us on the bottom and I have to defend myself by throwing her under the bus. I complain to the judges how she didn’t want to use any of my ideas nor was willing to compromise on the total look. Everything was made well but it looked so out of fashion, reflecting her style and not mine. Maybe she will listen next time if there is one.
Hi, Reco...we all know that your team would have won if it wasnt for Daniel's constent immaturity...but, this was good that it turned out like it did, cause she stood 'corrected' and looked like a total idiot. I think you are an extremely talented designer...and Daniel just needs to face the fact that you are waaaaay more expierenced than her...but, I guess she sees that now...ha ha!
Reco I look forward to seeing you in the finale. Keep on designing and being true to yourself. make your family proud and God bless!
Reco Luv you luv your work. I dont feel that you threw Danielle under the bus because everything you said was the truth. She was unwilling to compromse or collaborate with you because she let her personal feelings get in the way and that is so unprofessional and tacky. If u would have gotten sent home due to those ugly a$% pants I would have been done with this show!!!
i knew that was gonna happen i didn't understand what is her problem against u is she jealous because u were always right and always on top especially when it comes to fashion i felt as though she should of put her differences aside and tried to work with u as a team instead of insulting u and not taking some of your ideals in conderation i felt as though it should have been an individual challenge because when they isacc and kelly did the group thing before it didn't work so why would they something like this now i feel it's to far long in the compitetion to do the group thing but anyway u just keep your head up and don't anyone tell u that u cant do it and besides i thank your a winner in my eyes diva lol
Did you have a crystal ball? It was very smart to let Daniella do those pants. She always does the early 90's department store look. You will have your chance to shine again. You have great taste.
I thought you guys were going to have a horrendous fight but you are cool and experienced. Good show!
Same as Danielle, you are very talented and with a classy flair unfortunately your personality is coming across so terribly unprofessional that it will hurt you in the long run. You have to be able to deal with people on a professoinal basis. Please reconsider your mouth before you speak. Take the classy not trashy way out.
I am certain there is a lot of strategic editing going on here however, the fact remains that Reco is clearly in the top three of designers on this show. If they get rid of him, there really is no need to watch any further. Think long and hard judges.... it's not just fashion, IT'S RATINGS TOO! TEAM RECO all the way!
I think you should get a life. you are so rediculous and show off. your not the best. try being a team player and stop talking everybody. your a stuck up. my favorite is johnny.
Reco, keep doing what you do.... when you said you were going to throw her under bus, i almost lost it... too funny...
I Love You Reco! Keep doing what you've been doing and don't let any of them get your spirits down. They all know that your good and that's why they can't stand you. Let that be your motivation. Keep up the good work.
Well said Reco, had she went with your idea, you probably would have won and completed the outfit in less time! There's nothing genuine about Daniella. She bad mouths you and everyone else, and she's amateur at best. I certainly hope the judges can see through her facade. Keep doing what you're doing Reco, I love your confidence and you are the better designer. You also showed team play, unlike Daniella
I am a HUGE Reco fan and I'm sure you will win this competition. Merlin's style is just too much and John Paul's is too weird. Daniella's is out-dated and there is no one else that even warrants mentioning. I tried to buy your "new little black dress" but it wasn't available in a size 18. I normally wear a 14 but according to the size chart on the order page, I'm a perfect 18. My 25th high school reunion is coming up and I was sooo hoping to make the other women drool over your dress. It sucks to be an "average" southern woman sometimes. We have curves here! I wish you the best of luck but you don't need it. You have it in STYLE baby!
I am SO glad you stood up for yourself. Daniella can be such a B. She tries to act like she knows what she's talking about but really she's clueless. I mean come on how can you trust a designer who wears a bow tie in her hair and looks like Dorothy from TWOZ? You are clearly so talented. You make it seem effortless, and that's the true test of a great designer. It so obvious the others are majorly intimidated by you. Well too bad it's a competition.
Rico--you didn't trow her under the bus. You defended yoruself. I can't believe she tried to put blame on you. You tried to be open and listen to someone else (big mistake, but your effort is respected). She is a horrifict designer and person.
Love you Reco...hate that you were teamed with Daniella, she seems so difficult. You are really a talented all around. I would buy your stuff because it's quality made and fashion forward. I hope you are the season winner. Good Luck!
as I watch the show i love your designs i just hope you stay humble and win the competion and listen to whatever advice is given to you by the judges.
Reco! You are definitely my favorite, I don't understand why you don't win more often, but you're still in the competition and it's quite obvious why. You will get far whether or not you win or not and have something special that none of the other competitors have.
Love how you played ur cards right with Daniella... she basically threw herself under the short bus and u were the driver! ha! That's what she get's (in this episode), and I know she was feeling real SALTY when they dogged out that old fashioned get up!
Well keep up the excellent work Reco!
Daniella should have wet her pants when she found out you'd be her partner! I think if she had listened to you, you guys would have won. You are definitely the one to beat and I'm your biggest fan! BTW.. I'm the one that tried to buy your beautiful "little black dress" but it's not available in my size. Ugh. Keep on keepin' on and watch your back! They're hatin' on you because they're jealous.
RECO YOU ARE BE BEST!!! BE STRONG SWEET HEART. YOU ARE VERY TALENTED, CREATIVE AND ASSERTIVE. DONT LET ANYBODY BRING YOU DOWN. YOU WILL SUCCESS HONEY NO MATTER WHAT THE OTHER DESIGNERS OR JUDGES HAVE TO SAY.
I so heart you Reco and see you going very far in your profession. I would buy any thing you made/designed (if I could afford it). I hate to be a hater but ugh, how could you stand working with or being in the black cloud that is Daniella? She oozes cattiness and her manipulation should be clear to all. You are hands down the best, fastest and most efficient creator in my mind. Kudos and work it!
i love your style. you make so much sense. daniella is a no talent. shake her off. hope to see you in the finale.
Reco you are definetly my favorite designer on the show,I ca'nt wait to see more of your designs but if you do'nt control that ego you will find yourself eliminated. Daniella is my second favorite designer on the show and if you two get it together you can definitely be the last two standing with you being the ultimate winner of course,but that wo'nt happen if you two do'nt control those egos. Of course you two should know that the others are enjoying the constant bickering between you two because that takes you off your game,SHAKE IT OFF AND GET BACK ON YOUR "A" GAME. TIME TO GET RID OF HAVEN AND JOHNNY BECAUSE THEY STINK!!!!!!!! So leave them to their "UGLY" designs and they'll walk there way out soon. KEEP YOUR MOUTH CLOSED,AND YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN you'll learn alot about the people around you. HUGS AND KISSES!!!
I'm very happy that you have confidence as a designer, but your "I am the best" attitude is such a turn off.
I feel that Reco should win this competition. He is very talanted and has a great eye for design. I think that Daniella is very jealous of him and she makes it obvious. She is very evil, mean, nasty, and I dare say prejudice. It is written all over her face when she looks at Reco. If she wins this competition I vow never to support this network again. People like that dont deserve fame and fortune. I wish the best for Reco and all the other designers.
Rico, Stay true to yourself. Daniella does have definate ideas but for such a young person she is definately outdated. I watched your idea with the long skirt, at the time I thought you would convince her your idea was best but at some point in is much easier to let it go for peace. I did not think you threw her under the bus she did it herself. Keep your head high, I think you are fabulous and can go all the way.
Reco should win this competition hands down. There are alot of great designers on the show my least favorite is Daniella who I feel is mean, jealous and evil.
Once again, Reco was correct. The best part of the outfit was designed by RECO!! We watched back in CHattanooga and knew that Daniella was ruining it. If she had just listened, you two would have been on top this week. Continue to design and go with your instincts. You have the best ideas. Maybe next time, she will listen and do EXACTLY as you say. Go Reco! We are so proud of you in Chattanooga.
Reco you are the man and i love you. if you don't win i want watch the show again because they will try to fu?? over you. i'm praying you win and Daniel go home soon. i don't like that B????. i would love to be your do girl so if you need any one look me up. Celestia S. love you! talk to you next week.
Reco, I believe you are a wonderful, compelling, and innovative designer, but you need to loose the attitude. You come off as rude, and it annoys and offends your audience and other people. Otherwise, I think you will make it far in the competition!
Reco, You are very, very talented and I love what you do but a word to the wise Reco! Do what you do with a little more humility. Your "tude"? It will work against you in the long run. I have taught my two sons (trust me - I could be your mom)who are also very talented, to be confident "without" being cocky! There is a huge difference between the two. You can definately back up your fierce atitude but please, please temper yourself with a little humble pie and just keep on doing what you do, pray before you step up in there and go for what you know! They can't touch you Reco, if you would just "shut-it" and just work your magic baby! In other words, let your God given talent shine through and nothing else. Show your personality and confidence without the trimmings. Prayer changes things and I'll pray for you!
I totally agree with you but I think you guys would have had a better chance if you both took a time out and said for today lets stop fighting and do a great job .... besides her attitude I must admit she is very talented I love your shirt and she went wrong with the pants ... you should have suggested a skirt instead ... and yes they did looked like granny pants ewwww why didnt you say something even if she got mad at least you can say u told her they looked horrible ... anyways its done ...I hope you get your self togethere and do well in the next challenges I hope you Win !!!!!!
I am a fan of your work and I'm old enough to be your mom so please listen to me. Try eating a little humble pie! I have taught my two sons to be confident and not cocky. There is a fine line there and if you want to move into a higher level please be professional at all times. Reco since you are coming off on TV as obnoxious and unprofessional, even to me, and I love you Sweedie, please tone it down. I am not a hater or jealous believe me I cannot sew or design but I know you have what it takes to win so don't bite yourself in the behind. Pray and do what you do best - knock this out and stop being a braggart! Love ya and all the best to you!
to Viewer @9:55am...............RECO IS SUPPOSED TO THINK HE IS THE BEST, AS WELL AS THE OTHERS. YOU MUST HAVE THAT KIND OF CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF AND NOT DEPEND ON OTHERS THINK GOOD OF YOU.
FALL BACK RECO WILL WIN
Reco, you are great! I know you gave in to Danellia because you were trying to keep from fighting. My heart sank because I knew those pants were a bad idea, especially when you tried to shorten them and she wanted longer(ugly) to the ankle! She was set on having it her way. She even dogged out the blouse, and that was the one item that the judges liked. All I can say is try to be true to yourself. On another note please tame down the " I'm so great" comments it just looks bad and why brag when your work speaks volumes. Walk quietly and carry a big stick( your talent)is the stick you can beat them with!!
What ever happens. You will be successful. Because you are an awesome designer. You dont have to win. The tv show has made you famous. Just get out there. Dont let daniella get you down. She is afraid of you because she knows you are good.
Reco - your blouse was fabulous. I cannot believe that you were able to achieve that much detail in that period of time and create something I have not seen. The rest of the outfit through no fault of your own was horrendous. I would have loved to see your ball gown.
My concern is the preview I saw for next week and you were in tears. I hope that this does not mean they are eliminating you. ..Did anyone else see the preview?
Reco You are clearly the most talented designer. Resist the temptation to throw it in the faces of the other designers. You work speaks for itself. You are a REAL talent!
Reco ,keep doing you and you're @the top of your game.Be a team player they're watching that.Remember to put God first and you'll not go wrong .Love Tahwania Dennis
This is one black woman that loves you, and wishes you all the best in this competition! I watch the show eagerly waiting to see what you are going to create next, and I am always pleasantly surprised each and every time. You are a great talent for sure.
Reco, you are the best designer on the show...I only watch that show because of you.. and Daniella is a hater and she can cry all she wants.
ok as daniella's #1 fan i have to say that it just wasn't her fault it was your fault too. you are accusing her of not listening to you when you wern't listening to her. Team Daniella!!!!!!!!
i love you ricooooooo!!!! your style, the vision you have for your clothes.absolutely amazing. you are such and inspiration. you can make anything for anyone, doesnt matter the body type or shape of the person, you will make them look glamour and high fashion. i know you will make it to the finale and i am cheering for you 100%!! YOU WILL WIN!!! i am very very confident. God Bless and you are in my prayers. you have an eye that not many people can say they have! your a truuuuuuuuu fashion designer and i would buy your clothes anytime.
You go Reco! I never liked Daniella from the moment I saw her. Keep up the good work and that was a great move you pulled on her. To bad she didn't go home!
are you people sure you like reco's designs? i think it might be the drama that you're all attracted to. this is television, but off the camera it's fashion.
Reco - I did not want to watch this show, let alone like it or any of the designers - but I caught it one very late night after work - and you totally won me over. Sadly (or not?) - you remind me of myself!! When I know I'm right, what's the point of putting up with other people's BS?
I'm writing just because I saw the commercial for the next episode - and it showed you breaking down!! The mama in me wants to kick whoever's ass did that to you!! I will be VERY disappointed if you are not in the final. Your talent and personality have won me over; keep up the good work and I will look for you and your designs... take care and stay true!
Reco I knew from the beginning that you would be one of the ones in the finale. I think you just have it. You have some of the best ideas. Daniella is a good designer but she needs to learn how to listen and not think that she is always right. I think one of the other viewer was right when they said she threw herself under the bus. GO RECO!!! and keep up the good work, see ya in the final show.
Reco!!!!!! I watch the show every week just to see the HOT HOT HOT designs you create. U r, above all the rest, FASHION and truly an inspiration. I hope U win, and just know I will vote for U a million times (if allowed). When I get married, and if U r not too famous, maybe U can design my dress, cause win or lose, in my eyes U R THE FASHION SHOW.....DRAMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA LUV U BABES!!!!! P.S. That last design w/ u nd Danielle was the worst, all of it screamed Danielle, tacky just like her style she is not ur competition, even though she thinks she is, SHE IS A MESSSSS!!!! See u at the FINALE!!!!!
