On Friday, Project Runway's Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum got a good taste of the bitter, ongoing reality-centric labor disputes between the media moguls and the WGA.
Tim and Heidi were filming scenes for the new season on Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive and here's what the Project Runway crew had to deal with according to an eyewitness:
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.
Gosh, PR's move from Bravo to Lifetime seems a little cursed to us!
