Every Wednesday, those in the know wake up with a grin on their face. Why? Don't be silly, It's "Runway" Day and doesn't it always feel kinda good knowing the day will end with a fresh installment of Heidi and her gang? I thought it would be fun to celebrate today by calling white-hot baldy Andrae Gonazalo and throwing some questions his way.
By the way, you heard it here first that a "Project Runway" designer will be designing a gown for the SAG Awards for a certain "Desperate Housewife"! Who is it? I know the answer, but you're gonna have to stay tuned to find out... Uh oh, the phone's ringing and it's Andrae G. on the line!
HEY ANDRE, EVERYBODY IS ASKING ABOUT ANDRAE, ANDRAE, ANDRAE! WHAT'S YOUR BACKGROUND ANDRAE GONZALO?
What are they asking!? Well my ethnicity is that I'm exactly half Filipino and various types of caucasian. I grew up in LA all my life except for a brief stint in NYC after high school to study theater - which is an explanation for my ridiculous accent. We need to talk about my accent because people aren't getting it, I think
WHAT IS THERE TO GET ABOUT YOUR RIDICULOUS ACCENT?
It goes in and out, which people will notice if they watch the show. It's how I was trained to speak at NYU. If you watch carefully, in moments where I feel like I have to have myself together, this good speech as if I were in a Chekov play, comes out.
