Cringe Worthy Television
Ahhh! Right now I'm watching a Project Runway marathon! I think I've seen this episode, "Everyday Woman" at least half a dozen times. It isn't one of my favorites because it just makes me so angry. In the episode the designers have to create an outfit for one of the designers' moms or sisters. Jeffrey has Angela's mother. He is just such a jerk to her. Very disrespectful. Angela's mom is a lovely lady. Totally a typical Midwestern mom. She seems very nice and sweet. All she wants is a long dress in dark purple or dark green. What does Jeffrey do? He creates one of the worst outfits I have ever seen-- a long navy dress with some weird Periwinkle button down shirt collar. It belongs on the clearance rack at JC Penney. It is so cheap and tacky. Angela's mom needs a dress that she can feel confident in, not self-conscious. What makes me so crabby and angry is Jeffrey has no compassion for Angela's mom. He doesn't care if it looks good or she likes it. The way he treats her makes me cringe. No one's mom should be treated like that. Every time I watch this episode I end up having to cover my face and my eyes fill with tears because I feel so bad for Angela's poor mom. ARGH.
