This episode started off much like this season – with so much promise, but it went quickly downhill from there.
The moms and sisters came out from behind the scrim to surprise the designers. If not for anything else, it gave us a clearer picture as to how the designers got to be the way they are today.
Everyone started to cry tears of joy until Heidi dropped “zie bomb” and made them cry for real.
The designers had to design an everyday outfit for one of the other
designer’s mom/sister. Kayne said he picked Pam (Michael’s mom) because they had so much in common. The rhinestones on her sandals made HER toes twinkle – and Kayne IS a big ol' Twinkletoe!
Now, we’re off to see the
Oompa Loompa at the Tavern on the Green.
Michael Kors was there with his mother, who looks like a MORE masculine version of her son. OK, who am I kidding. She's a masculine version of her son.
Back at Parsons, the other designers were busy making their garments while little Jeffy played hide-and-go-seek with Angela’s mom, Darlene. Later, we see Angela consoling her mom in the breakroom. Jeffrey’s mom came over and made an excuse for her little Jeffy. I thought she was going to go back to Jeffy’s workspace to slap some sense into him. But alas, she rewarded her son’s bad behavior by nuzzling him close to her bosom. No wonder Jeffrey is the way he is!
In my book, making a woman cry is downright criminal. I don’t care if you were sober or falling down drunk, there’s just no excuse for making someone's mom cry. Unless you were over there chopping onions, I don’t want to hear about it!
So now we’re on the runway. Uli’s dress for Kayne’s mom looked like the clear winner (or at least a "see-through" winner).
But, they gave the win to Vincent instead. He did an OK job for Uli’s mom. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s just something missing. Maybe it needed a little more accessorizing. How about one of his signature whackadoo
Now that’s much better. All we’re missing is Santino’s turkey outfit from last season. Which one you ask? You’re right, I should have been more specific. He had quite a few turkeys last year.
To maintain the balance in the universe after last week’s auffing of the “offbeat” Alison, the judges decided to give the “boring” Robert the boot. He’ll have to go back to playing with dolls.
With our little sunshine gone, the forecast for next week looks very gloomy indeed.
