Marc Jacobs said that though he wanted to do a reality show at one point in time, he's increasingly doubtful about actually making it happen. "It's gotten so tough, I mean, I have so much work to do. I have very specific ideas about a show and how I'd want it to go, and I'd want it to be really different than the other ones," he told us at last night's event celebrating the Pratt Institute's 2009 Legends Honorees. "I have a good friend, Alek Keshishian, who's a director. He and I have talked about it for a long, long time. I think maybe I'm just too busy and it's not even just me, but the people in my life, if they're even up for it, so I don't think it's going to happen. I don't think so, unless we came up with the right thing, the right way." We noted that Bravo has been trying to get him to do a show for them for a long time. "I don't know anything about that," Jacobs confessed.

What could get him to do a show, if not Bravo's pleading? "Well, I really would just want it to be a really great project, not just another reality show. Not that there's anything wrong with them, but, for me, there's nothing really exciting about doing another anything, you know?" Though recent refuted rumors had Jacobs cast in Logo's forthcoming Real Housewives–inspired reality show, he says he's never seen the Bravo program. "I watched The Rachel Zoe Project a couple of times because she's my friend," he said. "I watched, once or twice, Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Maybe that's why he's no longer interested.
