    Diva Of The Week

    Carisa was pretty close to winning again,

    but was beat out by the holier than thou attitude of....

    Dude, just who do you think you are?
    You went into the presentation with an
    "I don't give a shit" attitude .
    That was the first nail in your coffin.

    You bitched and complained enough during the challenge
    that you made Rosie look nice.

    Well, maybe not, but you did bitch a lot.


    Ohhhhhh, and let's not forget that you told the judges
    that you wouldn't have taken this "commission",
    that you would turn away from the money,
    that it was a waste of your time? Big mistake!


    And you must not have liked what has been said
    about you on the blogs, because I noticed that you took
    every single blogger that was on your friends list off.
    Tsk, Tsk, didn't you like reading all the
    wonderful things that were being
    written about you?


    Guess not.
    (((MUAH)))

    Just wondering.

    I'm still confused. Why did Ryan enter the show if he disdained decorating so much? As a noncommercial artist he must have had some clue about the requirements of commercial television. At the very least, he must have realized that decorating would have been required as well as design. He reminds me of one of those caterwauling singers who try out for American Idol. You start to ask yourself, what were they thinking? Or was it calculation on their part?

    At least Ryan's stayed long enough on the show to have made a name for himself. Take heart, Ryan. Folks generally forget why you were on t.v. or where you stood in the competition. In a few months, they'll just remember they saw you somewhere.

    There was an actually opportunity here to discuss art-but people don't get that.. they are more interested in rumors about Michael's love life...Unlike on PR where the ideas and creativity are actually talked about.

    Interior design as an event is an interesting concept, like art as an event or a happening and not just an object. The only intellectual discussion on these threads is about Bravo's ability to produce a show.

    great point.

    he was great at making it sound like he was having a discussion about art. he was just being a jerk.

    if you dish it out you have to be able to take it.

    the myspace thing is very funny.

    Oh, how I agree with you, Anonymous. But when the vehicle itself is faulty and the designers are not allowed to run full tilt on their talent, but are stifled with insane conditions (cubicles, inane time constraints, challenges that make no sense), then we are given no forum for serious discussion.

    I recall the weeks leading up to this blog. Our team was ready. We researched, we couldn't wait, and then? Thud! Dud. Do what?

    None of the serious bloggers (and do not let our sarcasm or humor fool you) wants to dis the designers. These are talented, seriously trained people who set their lives aside in order to compete, and they deserved a better show.

    Case in point, Ryan. I loved researching his work. I couldn't wait to review his interior designs. But he was asked to do the impossible, and instead of rising to the occasion he got angry and just gave up. (He deliberately chose schotschkes for the cabana challenge and he openly disdained the garage challenge.) On the one hand, I can't blame him, on the other hand, I cannot side with someone who doesn't give his all, no matter how the deck is stacked against him. Good lord, you play the cards you are dealt and do the best you can.

    So, yeah. I agree with you. I am disappointed that we didn't get to discuss interior design and how the way we live and the environment we live in affects our mood in general, reflects our live styles and past influences, and blazes the way to the future.

    However, I fault Bravo's poor design of the show for our failure to discuss the larger issues. Not the bloggers.

    Not that I feel any need to do this but for the heck of it here's the deal:

    1. You have to create the conversations that you want.

    2. For the record in the past few weeks there have been opportunities to discuss the architecture of Paul Revere Williams, how color choices are made, the emerging design styles of the contestants, what constitutes kitsch, and how to track the visual associations of a particular image (i.e. Michael's birds). There's more.

    3. Ryan was full of bumper sticker slogans and insults. He didn't want a discussion. He just wanted attention.

    That said, this was the week I actually agreed with his point that the family should just get rid of their stuff.

    Ms. Place & Trixie- Thank you!!!

    I don't blame the people making these blogs- You have all been very funny and interesting. And Laz is extremely skilled at Photoshop. But there is no real dialog- granted the show lacks a lot. And Bravo won't take my posts for JA's Blog where I asked if interior design is supposed to make you happy and that's all- to borrow a phrase from grad school- how then is interior design different from masturbation?
    Or for MR, where I ask if Elle decor features garages? I don't comment to KW because she seems flakey, yet she understood Ryan a little.

    The event could have been the Bell's tossing their crap- Ryan could have said that was his art.

    Colors great topic- why aren't people talking about having a yellow kitchen makes couples fight more. Yes, I read the blog on Michael and the purple haze- smart. A detail I didn't notice. The bloggers are working hard-the designers are working hard.

    I guess I'm bored and I know smart people are listening...obviously I prefer a non-didactic approach to the information- which is why I don't comment as much on some blogs.

    Sorry- now I feel like I’ve been preaching to the choir…

    Oh, anonymous, preach away. You started a serious discussion, which I love, so please do not apologize. Yes, I notice that sometimes my comments don't get posted by Bravo. Very interesting.

    I can't wait to see tonight's show and I am rooting for TD to rise to the occasion. The designers that are left are by and large a group worthy of discussion.

    Yes, why didn't we discuss Paul Revere Williams more? (Linda Merrill did.) Or the color choices, like Trixie. This is a frothy blog, meant to make fun, but we were prepared to get serious too.

    My questions to Bravo are:

    Why weren't the designers asked to keep the garage in line with Paul Revere Williams' design philosophy, only using a modern twist?

    Who are the show's writers, and how come they wrote a show around the judges, not the designers?
