Lots of Hard Feelings Over Runaway `Runway’

Can we discuss all this "Project Runway" drama?

Yesterday, the uberpopular Bravo show, which is saying aufedersein to the NBC cable network next season, was unfashionably punk'd on Wikipedia, which posted the elimination results for the next four challenges!

(Spoiler alert!)

According to the chart, which was taken down from the Wiki page but remained alive on Gawker.com, reports that Suede, Jerell, Jennifer and Kenley get auf'ed by hostess Heidi Klum.

Hmmmm. Who would ever do such a thing? Could it be, gulp, sabotage?

As most "Runway" fans are aware, the show is moving to Lifetime when its contract runs out. Which isn't exactly sitting pretty with everyone involved.

NBC Universal, which owns the Bravo network, sued "Runway" producers the Weinstein Company for violating its contract rights in an attempt to keep the show. But for now, Lifetime is going ahead with plans to move Klum, Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors and the rest of the Big Apple fashionistas to Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Perez Hilton.com dished yesterday that "Sex and the City" fashionplate Sarah Jessica Parker is Bravo's choice to be the hostess of their "Runway" rebound show. The new show would feature aspiring artists getting their artwork judged by a panel of pros. Are you bored yet?
