The Project Runway split from Bravo was ugly, and a new report reveals that it was money AND ego that caused the big shake up!
According to a number of sources, the show owners, Weinstien Company, thought cable network Bravo sucked.
First, they felt there were underpaid for each episode.
For the most recent season the Weinsteins received $600K per episode, but previous seasons the rate per show was significantly less say insiders.
Lifetime, the new home of PR, is reportedly paying them a little over $1 million per episode!
That's a HUGE pay raise!
Secondly, the Weinsteins thought Bravo took too much credit for the success of the show.
Lifetime kinda sucks now and Runway will make it sorta cool. The Weinstein bros. will be able to pat themselves on the back for getting the popular people to hang out w. Lifetime.
If that happens!
Will you follow the show to its new network????
