We hope you're sitting down; this is EXPLOSIVE!
Getting candid in his first interview since his anti-Semitic rantings cost him his job and reputation, John Galliano speaks with Vanity Fair's Ingrid Sischy about his drug addiction, his personal demons, and the night at the Paris cafe that changed everything.
Recalling the infamous night in 2010, John admitted:
"It’s the worst thing I have said in my life, but I didn’t mean it. . . . I have been trying to find out why that anger was directed at this race. I now realize I was so f***ing angry and so discontent with myself that I just said the most spiteful thing I could."
Wow. And that's just the beginning!
Read the rest of the HIGHlights…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
His publicist, Liz Rosenberg, quickly shut down the rumor, saying:
"There are no plans in place regarding TV appearances for John at this time."
Then again, publicists always deny before it all comes out as true anyway. They just want us off the scent!
Plus, Rose's executive producer, Yvette Vega, seemed interested in the idea of a possible Galliano interview. She said:
Now the designer is finally ready to open up about the incident in a new interview with Vanity Fair.
Hmm…maybe this is why he cancelled.
In the magazine's July issue, he will talk about the remorse he felt and his hopeful plan to return to design. While most of the details have been kept under wraps, it will be interesting to get an inside look into how his career has changed over the past two years.
In fact, even his publicist Liz Rosenberg is in the dark about the interview, revealing that she has "no idea because I haven’t seen the article, adding, "I don’t know if there’s a slant."
Hmm, we'd be interested to know. And, you better believe we'll be picking up a copy when the July issue hits shelves.

We hope they saved their receipts!
Apparently Galliano refused to participate in the three-day "Show Me Emotion" master class, which included a "frank conversation" with BFA students about his career, because he didn't want to answer questions about the infamous comments that got him fired from Dior.
On Tuesday, Parsons informed students the workshop's been axed, explaining in a lengthy email:
The designer and Parsons professor hung out with Vogue's Grace Coddington in Manhattan on Sunday, looking as cray as you'd expect in a cable-knit sweater vest, plaid and camouflage shorts, and knit knee socks worn with sandals.
And despite her poufy, flame-red hair, Grace managed to fade into the background in her slouchy black slacks and double-breasted coat.
Although, who wouldn't when standing next to John???
We're definitely sad that the former Dior designer won't be at the Met Ball tonight, since so many of his cutting-edge designs are going to be on display, but apparently that would mean taking one too many steps.
His publicist Liz Rosenberg put it thusly:
"One step at a time, and that’s one huge mother f - - kin’ staircase.”
Well, we're sure John and his peeps know what's best for him!

The designer will be teaching a 3 day workshop at Parsons The New School for Design for seniors in the BFA fashion program called "Show Me Emotion", where students will explore the power of emotion and design.
The school released a statement, saying:
This is getting a little fishy!!!
Well, that ban might be hard to enforce because Galliano flat out denies ever agreeing to design a dress!
Last week Moran Mazor told a radio station her stylist, Gili Algabi, reached out to several designers, but John's publicist Liz Rosenberg says there was never any "official correspondence" between her client or the stylist.
Rosenberg said in an email:
