What bugged me about Michael is the way he went about it. He ran directly to Mila, melodramatically cuddled up next to her, and said it in a way as if it was the most scandalous thing to ever take place. It just seemed so extra, which is a trend I am seeing with him this season.
It wasn't extra. He went to the one person who has expressed problems with how close Kara and Kenley have become during this show. He went right to her and tattled.
It clearly isn't against the rules for one designer to help another on this show. If people have time and the inclination, they help each other out. On Michael's season everyone helped Andy finish the dress he made out of ribbons, for example. So, Michael's just fanning the flames and building up drama for reasons of his own.
I think Anthony is hilarious and will miss him.
