I had a blast this week shooting Season 1 of “Last Meal”, a new show from Two Penguins Productions, Actor/Director Jordan Firstman and The Grimmers! That’s basically all I am allowed to say about it at this point, but stay tuned. This fall is going to be SO fun and busy!
Thanks to my costars Jessica and Aaron Grimmer for the dreamy gift basket and hospitality and to Courtney and James and everyone at Two Penguins Productions for asking me to be in the show. Big shout-out to the team of makeup and wardrobe people who kept me from looking sweaty and shiny all day in the 100 degree Portland summer weather, too. It takes a village sometimes. 😉
Here’s a sneak peek to tide you over:

With the Project Runway Season 13 reunion show airing this week, I thought now would be a perfect time to catch up with my darling friend (and Season 13 finalist), Emily Payne, about her time as a contestant on the show this year and what life is like now that it’s over.
Payne is a San Francisco-based designer and full-blown visionary. Overseeing two fashion houses of her own creation — Leathertongue and Devon Rose — and balancing motherhood and newfound mainstream television fame, Emily is riding the Project Runway rollercoaster with a level of grace fans of the show have not seen before.

How does it feel to finally be able to talk about it after having to keep so painfully quiet for so long? Read the rest of this entry »
