I love love love Project Runway, but this season I have been a bit disappointed in the attitudes of the designers. The one designer in particular that makes my heart cringe (Side note: Heart Cringe does sound a bit dramatic but it is literally the first thought that came to mind) week after week is Irina Shabayeva. She has beautiful designs, but she continuously talks bad about all of the other designers in every single episode. This seriously makes me think negatively about her designs because her attitude towards others is so negative. Even in the preview for this week’s new episode, Irina is already talking bad about Althea calling her King Kong. Well Irina, I think you are being a bit like King Kong because you are a bully. You are an amazing designer but your looks are being brought down by your attitude towards others, and it makes me dislike the looks all together.
I think we all know the golden rule by now: Do to others what you would like to be done to you. Or, one of my favorite lines from Disney’s Bambi, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”
All of the designers on Project Runway are there for a reason, and I know they are there to compete, but that is no reason to bash each other’s personality traits and designs. I am getting tired of hearing it and honestly it’s so unattractive to hear hurtful things come out of one’s mouth. After being in a sorority, I have dealt with a lot of catty girls in my days, and I have found it is best to just keep a smile on your face and be nice to everyone you come in contact with. You never know the battles people are fighting when you run into them, and I personally am a BIG believer in karma.
How do you deal with caddy girls? Have you noticed the attitude I am talking about on Project Runway?
