So good to see the lovely, elegant Laura again. I wish they'd let her talk more, but when she did, she was to the point, but not gratuitously cruel.

I did love her "Excuse me?" response to Keith, although the previews made it look like a very different exchange than it turned out to be.

*sigh* Laura, you will forever have my heart with your red-haired, badass, milfness. Love her.

That was great. Laura definitely knows how to deal with a sass-mouth.

That comes from dealing with 90387438 kids. I loved that comment too. I just couldn't remember if she said, "Pardon me?" or "Excuse me?".

Just rewatched her collection which I tivo'd the other day. Still love it. LOVE IT!

Just googled her. Seems she now does a collection for QVC. It's not particularly well reviewed from a quality standpoint. It also is also sportswear, which is not her forte.

Just curious, do you have a link? I also Googled her but didn't find a review of the clothing, which I'd like to see before considering a purchase.

Read her blog for the first time today. She reminds me of Erma Bombeck! Cool! I still want to see more designs though.

I saw Laura in central park yesterday with one of her children. I wanted to stop her and get a picture with her but I didn't want to disturb them.

For anyone who hasn't checked out Lifetime's website, Laura has been doing a blog on Project Runway this season. I've really enjoyed reading her entries. As can be expected, she has great taste and her writing is intelligent and witty.

Laura Bennett's attempts at humor are just as labored, lofty, self-referential, and smug as her designs.

As confirmations go, kind of ambiguous. BTW, unless you have a mouse in your pocket, you might reconsider the "we."

I was never a big Laura fan-I thought the jodphurs as her casual wear thing was really pretentious as were her commentaries on the other designers her season. She still has her own very particular aesthetic when critiquing but I see from her commentaries on later seasons that she is big on tongue and cheek stuff and I agree that maybe this little film is in that category. There are many cases where people did have favorites and that hurt other family members but I think this is a joke. There was some favortism in my mom's family but we had our own set of jokes about who was the favorite making fun of that. It would have sounded horrible then if anyone heard it and would sound horrible now if I wrote some of the stuff here but it really was a joke. Her error was showing a family joke on television maybe.

My problem with her was always that she designed for herself and only herself. Anyone with any boobs at all couldn't wear her huge v-necks without having to resort to the dreaded "modesty tab." (TM Michael Kors)

But if you ever have to go in for open heart surgery, if you wear one of her designs, you're dressed for the occasion.

It's funny, the article says she only has 2 plunging v's. I see at least 4 (there are two others that I think are kinda negligible.)

One is a neckline created by a jacket and one is a shirt that is unbuttoned to like the second button.

Anyways, I love Laura's commentary and even though she is very polarizing I think she is probably my favorite PR cast member of all time. I was shocked that she didn't get a spot in the cast of all stars.

Is she blogging All Stars? I saw one post, right after the first episode, but I can't find it and haven't seen anything for the second.

For anyone interested, Laura has a new book out:

I checked it out at my library, but haven't had time to go through it yet.

Thanks Crystal for the information. I had wondered why Laura hadn't blogged about the last two episodes on the PR website. I really appreciate her commentary and insight -- I always read her commentary as soon as it is available. I am truly sorry to hear about her loss and my heart aches for her children.
