10 Years After Harvey Weinstein Fired Me…

It’s been exactly 10 years since this man fired me from my own Weinstein Company show for refusing to leave rehab against medical advice, then canceled the project all together when I didn’t kiss the ring and quite literally die for him.

He and his whole team were pissed that Pathways dual diagnosis treatment center in St. Helens, Oregon wouldn’t let them come film/exploit me in detox (pesky health privacy laws!) then when I wouldn’t leave to shoot scenes, dude called Pathways, convinced the doctors to come put me on the phone, then savagely fired me for costing him money when I was at one of the lowest, most dangerous points in my life (and recovery).

Always a charmer.

I was given the choice to leave treatment and continue shooting this reality series we had been filming for over a year, but thankfully I chose to live instead. I would not be here today if I had caved to that pressure.

All thanks to the incredible staff at Pathways for not letting them come film me there and then encouraging me to stay. It was a hard decision — and one that I have had moments of regret over here and there since; particularly in the early years, when it seemed I had let my one big break go by.

Turns out there’s no such thing as one big break, and sometimes things that feel like a loss at the time end up being a win later.

Happy Friday, Harvey. I can’t wait to watch your new prison special!

P.S. – Now that Harvey’s going to jail, I hope people start focusing on Bob and the rest of their minions. That entire company is garbage and should be held accountable for the twisted culture they created together.

Thanks again to my old friend and Designer Emily Payne (Project Runway / Leathertongue / Project Runway: All Stars) for her support of our mental health advocacy efforts!

I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing her at the Clift Hotel about self-care and resilience in the face of reality TV competition show stress for Keep Oregon Well while I was in San Francisco last week.

Emily Payne Interview with Logan Lynn (2014) Project Runway Season 13

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/29/2014)

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. If you caught any of this season, you have no doubt already fallen head-over-heels in love with this sweet, talented creature.

Watch Emily Payne’s pre-season designer home visit video, then read our chat below – and be sure to tune into Lifetime Thursday for the reunion. The trailer promises fireworks!


Logan Lynn: Hey Emily! Thanks for chatting with me today. Anyone who has been following your run on this 13th season of Project Runway knows that you took your final bow as a contestant on the episode just before the finale. 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 »
