Episode 8: Giving To Charity, Shirin's Hotness Downfall, And The Epps Take Their Lumps: A Project Run(A)Way Hater's Perspective

Before I begin this week's episode recap, I'd like to be serious for a minute and talk about an organization that is aiming to help the people of the Philippines who were devastated by the recent Typhoon Ondoy.

HOPE worldwide is an international charity that aims to change lives by harnessing the compassion and commitment of dedicated staff and volunteers to deliver sustainable, high-impact, community-based services to the poor and needy. A good friend of mine who has volunteered all over the world for Hope worldwide helped to build and work in an facility called the Center of HOPE Worldwide Orphanage in Manila. It is a treatment center for abused children in the Philippines, specializing in child sexual and physical abuse cases primarily. The center offers short-term and long-term residential care, treatment and placement, meeting the holistic needs of each child. The center has been completely flooded and destroyed, and they are working to take care of the people who were displaced as a result.

Here is a link to how you can make a donation to helping the victims of this terrible disaster reclaim their lives.

On a personal note: Like many of us, when I initially heard about the typhoon, I admittedly thought little of it. Was it sad to hear? Yes. But was I greatly affected in any way by the news? No. To be frank, I was pretty disconnected from the whole thing. When tragic events like this happen, most of us don't stop to realize just how much people's lives have been affected by this, because simply put we're not the ones being affected.

But when my friend told me about the orphanage in Manila, and that she knows of several people who have perished or are declared missing as a result of the typhoon, I began seeing things in a different light. And I began to think that in these times, we have to look beyond our little bubble. We have to see the world around us and help out -- all of us -- when others are in need.

In addition, a small donation really goes on a long way. Living in America, we don't see how far a little money can go. But in an impoverished nation, a $25 donation -- one donation!! -- can help feed a family for months. All of this -- individually -- can make a big difference with just a small effort.

So please click on the link above and make a donation. You will be changing a life for the better.

And with that, on with the show:

10:01 p.m. Gordana: "When I came to America, I had nothing. Now I have everything."

Except anti-wrinkle cream.

10:01 p.m. Irina's drinking orange juice.


10:02 p.m. Ewwwwww!!!! Nicolas is undressing Logan with his eyes!!!

10:03 p.m. The designers get new models and are wearing wedding dresses even though they're already divorced.

Does anyone else find this disturbing?

10:04 p.m. I'm glad my wife Ramona is out of town and not listening to how long all these women have been divorced. Don't want her getting ideas.

10:06 p.m. What is an "apple-kay?" Is it a push-up bra?

10:07 p.m. Irina has made another huge push in the hotness pool. She's a solid # 2 now, far outdistancing Shirin -- whose bitchy attitude is making her less attractive -- and Althea continues to pound the oreos. This is getting tight.

10:07 p.m. Shirin continues to bitch and moan. She's getting uglier by the second.

10:09 p.m. What does Logan have against us seeing his hair? I swear, that hat takes over half his face.

10:10 p.m. Thank you, Mood!!

(slaps Mood's ass)

10:11 p.m. Carol says that cutting up a wedding dress is like running into a church and swearing at the top of your lungs.

For Carol, that would be her version of having the holy spirit.

10:11 p.m. Gordana tries to reach her kids on the phone but can't. She cries.

I know I should care, but you know what? I don't. And you know what? You don't care, either. You hate her. She's creepy. Admit it. It's OK.

10:13 p.m. Shut up, Shirin!! Jesus.

10:19 p.m. Tim is worried about Logan's textile. And really, it is a concern. Textile is not Logan's strong suit. We all know this.

10:20 p.m. Shirin whines to Tim. Shirin whines to the camera. Shirin whines to herself. Bitch bitch bitch. Moan moan moan. Cry cry cry. Shirin, you want to gain your momentum back on the hotness poll? Stop talking.

10:22 p.m. Logan is freaking out. His hair may be falling out, but we can't see it.

10:24 p.m. This episode is more boring than usual. I mean...yawn.

10:29 p.m. Gordana: "I look like I've been digging holes."

Which is an improvement.

10:29 p.m. Chris: "This is my design and I stand behind it."

Well good for you, Chris!! Now go verbally suck Epperson's penis.

10:31 p.m. Is it just me, or was Tim's "Macy's Accessory Wall" pointing-it-out thing less enthusiastic than usual?

10:32 p.m. I am stunned that Shirin's model got divorced. I mean, what man wouldn't want a woman who questions every little detail of every little thing every five minutes?

10:32 p.m. How revolting is Nicolas' model Stephanie? Steph wants to have Nicolas' child and Nicolas -- not exactly a looker in either the straight or gay community -- looked like he was going to vomit.

10:39 p.m. "There are nine of you here, and after today: They'll be eight."

Don't you just love her for her brains?

10:40 p.m. OK, watching the divorced women walk down the aisle is ridiculously hysterical. Most of them are, like, power walking.

10:40 p.m. Logan designed fat pants.

10:42 p.m. Gordana's divorcee looks like a coked-out Uma Thurman.

10:44 p.m. The judges love Gordana's Uma-on-crack outfit.

10:45 p.m. Chris has been fake-smiling this whole episode, almost like he's trying to make up for crying his eyes out last time.

10:46 p.m. Epperson is getting bashed by the judges. Chris, go verbally down on him. Make him feel better.

10:46 p.m. Shirin'a divorcee -- you know, every man's fantasy if he wants to be ridiculed every eight seconds for the rest of his life -- has bad teeth.

10:56 p.m. Shirin is in. But she's faltering where it counts.

10:57 p.m. Gordana wins. But her kids don't love her.

10:57 p.m. Irina is win. She's hot.

10:58 p.m. Little Epp, aka Chris, is in. Will Big Epp survive? Bottom two: Logan and Epperson.

10:58 p.m. Epperson's gone. But Chris remains to carry on his legacy.

Final thoughts:

This episode sucked.


That's pretty much all I got.


Until next time.
