A screenshot of Miranda on the first episode of “Project Runway” season 12. It’s State Fair 2013 and I’m walking around with a few of my friends. As we pass a group of teenage girls, one of them looks up, gasps and announces “OH MY GOD!!!! IT’S MIRANDA FROM ‘PROJECT RUNWAY’!” Photos are taken, and […]
Photos are taken, and I watch a young girl legitimately freak out and shake as she greeted Miranda. Her beaming father tells us: “We were just watching the show before we came here.” So this is what fame looks like, I thought.
I looked at Miranda who was clearly having a moment. She muttered: “He said, ‘See you in New York.'”
Shortly after that Miranda disappeared, with only a few postings a week on her Facebook of silly cat Youtube videos. A few weeks later the secret was out, and “Project Runway” released a photo of the new season 12 contestants. I scanned the photo for Miranda and also found another familiar face, that of Timothy Westbrook. The burning question you want to ask: Was the feud between Miranda and Timothy made for TV? Well no, not exactly. It was very real, but they’ve since shook hands over their differences and called a truce.
