Project Runway Vs. The Fashion Show

“Last year, NBC Universal, the owner of Bravo, sued the producer of the show, Weinstein Co., for breach of contract, claiming the company had unlawfully sold it to Lifetime.Under a pact announced in April, Weinstein Co. agreed to pay NBC Universal a multimillion-dollar settlement, although exact terms were not disclosed.In exchange, NBC Universal dropped its suit.  Lifetime, which is trying to shed its frumpy image and boost its ratings, agreed to buy “Project Runway” in a five-year deal worth at least $150 million. The female-targeted network is co-owned by Walt Disney Co. and Hearst Corp.  NBC claimed that Weinstein went behind the network’s back when he cut the deal with Lifetime. NBC said it had a right of first refusal to any competing offer.  Lifetime, which is trying to shed its frumpy image and boost its ratings, agreed to buy “Project Runway” in a five-year deal worth at least $150 million.

This explains why the shows are so similar.  “The Fashion Show” is Bravo’s attempt to replace its’ highly rated golden child.  I’m glad to see that Kelly Rowland has bounced back from being dropped from her label.  Hopefully, this show will result in some sustainable income for Kelly.  It’s a recession, you know she needs that money!!!

I came across the funniest interview.  It’s Kelly Rowland being interviewed by MTV in Lithuania.  Besides a slight language barrier, the interview goes well until the reporter seems to forget which child of destiny that he’s taliking to.  Check it out below, it takes a turn for the worse at approximately 4:18.
