Project Runway really, really shouldn't have moved to L.A. for the sixth season. Aside from the move possibly causing Michael Kors and Nina Garcia to miss some episodes, the crew encountered some other logistical problems last week when WGA workers staged a raucous protest of the show. An eyewitness tells Defamer:
This morning, about 10:45am, I was returning some clothes to the Michael Kors store on Rodeo Drive when I had to cross a big picket line of shouting strikers (all male writers, WGA posters and banners) protesting "Project Runway." They had pulled the fire alarm on the nearby Valentino store also, adding to the noise of their shouting. I walked past them and the two security guards and went to enter the store, and upon opening the front door was startled to see Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum staring at me! They were obviously shooting a segment for the upcoming season, as there were lights and baffling filling the entire showroom. I quickly shut the door and ended up giving my good [sic] to a saleswoman who cam [sic] around from the back. There was a huge crowd watching all of this and taking pictures. I don't know how they are going to edit this as I'm certain the yelling and commotion could be heard inside the store.
Sounds pretty embarrassing for Heidi "Who, me?" Klum and Tim "Never Hurt a Fly" Gunn there. At least they have plenty of time to re-tape stuff since they probably won't come back on the air for another year. Hell, for that matter they may as well scrap this season and reshoot the whole thing in New York like it's meant to be!
