I’m Into Leatha

Filed under good times at everyone else's expense

Stella Zotis is totally my favourite designer on this season’s “Project Runway”.

Not because I’m into her aging rocker clothes or anything but because of this:

Of course she’s from Queens, right?

I’m too lazy to download, convert, and trim the clip myself, but I also highly recommend this video at 3 minutes, 13 seconds in:

I’m not sure I’ve liked a single thing she’s sewn so far, but I sure do hope she keeps getting passed through to the next rounds based on her personality alone.

    I think the producers of the show like her, too, because she totally deserved to be kicked off after the first episode for sewing together a couple of garbage bags.

    So, why is your “Disabilities are NOT Funny” post considered a “Related Post” to this one? Weird.

    • Yeah, this is maybe the one time when I’ve been pleased that a contestant’s being kept not for her ability but for her drama-inducing. (LISA FROM “TOP CHEF”, I’M LOOKING AT YOU.)

      Both of the posts are tagged “good times at everyone else’s expense”. I feel a little bad for making fun of Stella, but, you know.

      • Tracey says:

        Wow. You feel bad for making fun of Slella? The kids with Down’s Syndrome, however…

        • You said “Down’s Syndrome”! You said “Down’s Syndrome”! You’re totally more British than I am!

          Aren’t you so pleased that it was a guy named Down who discovered the thing? It’s so fitting, ’cause retarded people really get me down, despite the fact that they’re all super-excited all the time.

    The first video you posted has a really bizarre related video. “Letha Weapons” seems to be suffering from a neurological disorder or withdrawal. Or maybe her hemorrhoids are acting up. And her poor left tit! It wants out of the hideous pink get-up so bad.

    • I’ve already watched this video seven times. While at work, of course. But I guess it’s best Jose knows how I am early on. My favourite part is 17 seconds-ish in when she touches herself and then grabs her hair all surprised-like, as if she just remembered that it looks like it belongs on a mangy dog.

      I’m so surprised that so many of those videos exist, though. I suppose that’s sexy to someone, but I watched another one where there wasn’t any music to speak of, and it just seemed depressing. At least this woman seems to be gearing up for a long, cheesy night with Barry White.

    Wow, I’m totally in love with the way she says “leatha” too. Real. Attitude. lol

    Tomorrow, Cafe Pick-me-up for writing. You coming or no? (You better be…grrr…)


    • That’s pretty much how you talk, too. Wen and I often sit around watching videos of you that I secretly film on my camera and talking about how weeeeeird your New York accent is.

      I don’t feel like I actually got invited to the café tonight. It seemed like Josh was talking to himself or replying to e-mails I never saw.
