Stop the presses! Here's some late-breaking "Project Runway" news: Heidi Klum tried to get the other judges to vote for Mondo and not Gretchen, who ended up as the winner. Tim Gunn dished out the details at a recent Kate Spade event in Pennsylvania:
"Heidi asked me, 'Who do you want to win?' And I told her. And she said, 'So do I! But... I can't get Michael or Nina to budge!' Nobody mentioned Jessica Simpson. [Laughs.] So Heidi said to me, 'Come with me, I want you to talk to Michael and Nina.' And I said, 'I'm not a judge! They're not going to be happy about this.' So I went with Heidi and we made quite a case for our candidate -- can you guess who our candidate was?"
Then the audience yelled "Mondo!" It was a robbery, people, robbery. As Tim says, "Mondo will do fabulously anyway, and Gretchen needs the money." Burn!
