Friday Notebook

By admin Published: October 29, 2010

Yesterday I chatted with Jill Behm of "Survivor: Nicaragua" about what led to her demise. She was very honest about her miscalculations -- and her bad luck. You can read the interview here.

New date for Max Weinberg's Kent Stage show has been
confirmed for Feb. 2. Groundhog Day. I hope that doesn't mean he'll just play the same song over and over.

OK, old joke. It's Friday. I'm tired.

Was intrigued by Zap2it's list of Hollywood's hottest vampires, with lots of folks from "True Blood" and "Vampire Diaries" -- but no Catherine Deneuve from "The Hunger." And Deneuve is career-achievement hot.

Gretchen Jones won "Project Runway." Here's the official word: After the toughest judges’ deliberation in Project Runway history, Northwest-based designer Gretchen Jones has been named the winner of Season Eight of Project Runway. Narrowly beating out fellow designers Mondo Guerra and Andy South, Jones ultimately won with her bohemian inspired, fashion-forward ollection that won the praise of host Heidi Klum, judges Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and guest judge, Jessica Simpson. Jones walks off with $100,000 from L’Oréal Paris to start her own line, a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine, a $50,000 technology suite by HP and Intel to create her own vision and run her business and the opportunity to design and sell an exclusive collection on Jones’ model, Millana Snow, will also appear in the designer’s editorial feature in Marie Claire and receive $25,000 from L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional.

Considering what they say over at Marie Claire, she'd better not put on any weight. The mag's blogger, Maura Kelly, is at the top of my you-self-absorbed-pig list for the week. "Mike & Molly" is not a great show, but it's a pleasant one, and this attack on overweight people was appalling.

Of course, Kelly has to share the top of my list with that little bleep who wrote for Gawker about an intimate encounter with politician Christine O'Donnell. This is by no means an endorsement of O'Donnell. Not a fan. But this guy's description of the encounter, and his loathing of something very natural, make him real slime in my book.
