Tim Gunn Jokes 'I'm In A Witness Protection Program' Thanks To Anna Wintour's Wrath (VIDEO)

Tim Gunn talked to Regis and Kelly about perhaps the most ridiculous anecdote in his book "Gunn's Golden Rules": that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was once carried down stairs by her bodyguards. Gunn revealed that Wintour read the excerpt (most likely when it appeared in the New York Post) and "went ballistic," saying it wasn't true and demanding an apology. What's the lesson to be learned here? "Accept responsibility for your own behavior," Gunn explained, adding, "If you're going to be carried down five flights of stairs own up to it." He also joked that he's now in a witness protection program thanks to Wintour's wrath. Or maybe he really is.
