"Top Design" Reality TV Update!

A big thanks to decor8 reader Lise for keeping us in-the-know when it comes to reality design television. Being in Germany for the past 4 weeks, I'm a bit out of it when it comes to what's happening back in the states. I barely have time to blog (though I'm doing my best), nevermind read American news and tabloids.

If you promise not to throw fruit at me, I'll disclose something else... I have no clue what is going on with Project Runway. I know, I know. I actually forgot all about it until today when I saw Heidi Klum on a poster downtown. In fact, I don't know who went to fashion week, or what has happened with the season since I left the states in September. All I know is that over here, Heidi Klum is huge. Not only is she butt-naked on Max magazine this month (pop culture mag) and all over Douglas ads, but she has her own spin off of America's Next Top Model here in Germany called appropriately, Germany's Next Top Model, hosted by Ms. Klum herself. I digress...

Back to the point of this post, Lise sent me a link to a news story about Top Design, a new Bravo reality show for aspiring designers with Todd Oldham steering the ship and and Elle Decor editor in chief Margaret Russell by his side. I blogged about it a few months back, so consider this a follow-up. The new series hits American televisions everywhere in January. Get all the details here at Radar online. Thanks again, Lise. You rock girl!
