In the midst of Fashion Week, designer Michael Costello shared his hysterical recap on episode 8 — read on to see what he thought of the latest episode!
Once again I am surprised by the beginning of the challenges! I am loving Project Runway's new twists! This week its all about EXERCISE! This week challenge designers must create performance wear that is fashionable! The winning design will be sold at the New Balance store and sold at their website — how cool!
‘Project Runway’ Season 12 Episode 8 Recap — Michael Kors Returns:
But as you know, nothing is that simple. In order to get their fabric, the designers must first go through the Project Runway obstacle course, which consisted of a three-legged race, a tire run and wheel barrel races — until they had to dig through a rag pool for a flag! The winning team gets one extra hour and they get to choose their fabric first — the steaks are certainly high.
Now it’s time to team up and Karen and Ken are a team — wow, talk about total opposites. Bradon and Helen, they look like the ultimate team. Bradon and Helen had a major lead until they realized they forgot a step and had to go back…Dom and Justin WIN!
We’re back in the showroom and the drama begins! Ohhhh my favorite part! Bitchy Ken is back. Helen asked Tim a question regarding clothes in the showroom but won’t repeat the answer to the other designers. Ken makes a big idea about it, call her shady. "Its Sandro part two," Helen said — and I died! That is hilarious because frankly Ken is also a ticking bomb. Helen leaves the showroom and claims she doesn't want to be stabbed on Project Runway! Meanwhile Ken calls his spiritual leader to calm himself down. REALLY?! It’s not that big of a deal. He should really just go to anger management therapy session(s) already.
Heidi Klum In The Workroom:
After talking with Tim, Ken apologizes to Helen and they move on? I doubt that from Ken. He seems like the ultimate drama queen. Heidi joins Tim to see how the designers are doing on their designs.
Heidi tells Karen her outfit is a green martian! Ouch — but I loved Heidi's reaction and commentary. So Karen basically has four hours to restart. Ummmm is Karen going home this week? Ken’s outfit looked a bit tragic and Heidi said it looked like a scuba outfit. Haha!
Now there’s 30 minutes until the runway! All the designers put their finishing touches on their work and get ready to hit the runway. This week's guest judge is Michael Kors and it feels like old times! Oh how I miss him and the team.
Let’s begin the runway! Now since I am all about evening wear I am curious to see if I will love ANY of these looks.
Kate: Umm she looks active, I LIKE the pop of red! Bradon: Ohhh I love the detailed piping and style lines! I want that workout outfit! Alexandria: Boring, forgettable. Helen: I love the movement of the mesh jacket. Dom: Not sure — it looks cool but a bit like student work? Justin: I love the tailoring minus the butt cheeks hanging out. Ken: Ummmmm Walmart? Jeremy: Cute, lulu lemon worthy…. Cute I guess Karen: Cute for four hours Alexander: I like the color blocking, cute!
The Top Three: Kate: Mesh contrast with a zipper in the back. "Polished, you're thinking about function. "- Zac. All the judges loved her look.
Alexander: The fact that there are no side seams is pretty cool. Nina and Michael Kors aren't feeling his look. Michael said it looks like it could be on a sales rack. OUCH! Ultimate insult! At least it got to a store.
Helen: "A jacket that covers the ass and the thighs I love!" – Nina. Michael Kors calls it a perfect hybrid.
The Bottom Three:
Ken: "TOO SAFE" — the scuba suit came up again. Michael paired his look on the same sales rack that Alexander's look would be in.
Alexandria: Umm we saw those pants in already. Those t-shirt cuts look tragic. I'm glad all the judges agreed. Heidi loved the poopy pants.
Karen: Major missed opportunity. Even though it looks a lot better than her original deigns it’s still tragic.
Winner: Helen! SO proud of her. Nina put in an order already! Aw, too cute. OUT: Karen! I was hoping Ken would be the one to go home. BYE KAREN!!! No sex appeal and frankly it was time for her to go home.
Until next time, but now I've gotta get back to Fashion Week! I have a show to produce!

A new report from Us Weekly claims Liam and Miley are no longer sleeping together, but sources tell Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the couple is still going strong — especially between the sheets!
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth‘s relationship has seemingly been on the rocks for a while now, but even though they fight sometimes, they always patch things up afterwards with some steamy make-up sex, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.Read on for all the details!
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth: Sex Is HOT After Fights — Still Sleeping Together
Miley and Liam may not be totally compatible in every way — he is introverted while she is (clearly) very social — but there’s one place where none of that matters: the bedroom!
“They’re still sleeping together because every time they fight, Miley brags about the hot make-up sex and we get all the details,” a source close to Miley reveals.
We were worried about Miley and Liam before, but it sounds like fighting is actually a turn-on for them! Maybe they’ve got it all worked out.
Miley Cyrus: Liam Hemsworth Fights Inspired Her Raunchy Dancing At The VMAs
Now that we know about Miley’s habit of having hot make-up sex after fighting with Liam, we’re not surprised their monster blowout before the VMAs led to a hypersexual performance from Miley.
A source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
Miley and Liam had an argument the day of the show — she was really upset and she took it all out onstage, so the performance got even crazier than they had planned because Miley was really amped up. When she fights with Liam, she acts out and gets even more rebellious, and that came out on stage, but she’s not sorry. She made a big impact and that was the goal. She did warn Liam that the show was going to be wild but even she didn’t know just how wild it was going to be.
It seems fighting and sex go hand-in-hand for Miley! We’re told Liam was really upset about Miley’s performance, so they probably had the hottest make-up sex of all time after that one!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is make-up sex a healthy habit? Let us know!
Fans were whipped into a frenzy after a report claimed that one of the greatest actors of all time was set to retire. But never fear, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that we will see Jack act again! Thank goodness!
Whether you like The Shining, Batman, The Departed or any of the other great films thatJack Nicholson has starred in, we all had a scare when we heard the gifted actor had retired. But we can all breath a sigh of relief because the reports are not true! Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details!
Jack Nicholson Retired — Has He Really Quit Acting?
What would the film world be without Jack? Thankfully, we don’t have to find out just yet. Contrary to a Sept. 4 Radar Online report alleging Jack had given up acting due to memory issues, the “As Good as It Gets” actor is still going strong.
“Jack has — without fanfare — retired,” a source told Radar. ”There is a simple reason behind his decision — it’s memory loss. Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him. His memory isn’t what it used to be.”
But things are not as dire as they seemed, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
“Though he is not pursuing anything, and doesn’t have anything coming up, he has absolutely nothing to prove,” our source reveals. ”We will see Jack act again, you can count on it!”
We can’t wait!
What’s Next For Jack Nicholson?
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so he’s probably just taking some time off. Though the award-winning actor doesn’t have anything lined up, it’s only a matter of time before he chooses his next vehicle — and based on his track record, it will be incredible. The reaction to his alleged retirement was overwhelming, but thankfully we all still live in a world that has Jack!
So HollywoodLifers, are you glad that Jack will act again?

Amid conflicting reports about whether Lamar checked into a rehab facility, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that Lamar did in fact go to rehab on Sept. 4 — but he checked out the very next day.
Lamar Odom, 33, left his attorney Robert Shapiro‘s rehab facility on Sept. 5, just one day after checking into the substance abuse center. Despite the fact that he is obviously in trouble, sources close to Lamar say he just wasn’t ready to seek professional help. Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details.
Lamar Odom Leaves Rehab After 1 Day — Checked Out Of Robert Shapiro Center AMA
Lamar’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, along with his friends and family, have been doing everything they can to help him, but even after a big step forward, it seems Lamar is still not prepared to seek treatment for his drug problems.
“Lamar checked into Robert Shapiro’s rehab center, Pickford Lofts, in West LA and pulled a AMA–Against Medical Advice. He left a day later,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“This is common for a lot of users entering rehab against their will,” the source adds. “Lamar isn’t ready — he hasn’t hit rock bottom yet. The only reason he checked in is because Robert Shapiro gave him an ultimatum: Check into my rehab and I will help you with your legal problems…but ONLY if you check in!”
So sad! Lamar was so close to getting the help he needed. We can only hope he will come around soon.
Lamar Odom Secretly Checks Into Rehab
Now that Lamar has checked out of rehab, his loved ones are probably more worried than ever. Lamar was later spotted in Los Angeles, according to People magazine, but a source tells us that Lamar checked into rehab very independently and under the radar, without even the knowledge of his family and friends.
“We hope he’s all right but like Khloe and the rest of his family, [as far as we know] he’s a gone ghost,” another source close to the Odom family tells HollywoodLife.com, suggesting that Lamar is keeping his movements extremely close to the vest.
“We’re all worried,” says the source, who also adds that they have not heard from Lamar since the Sept. 4 report claimed he had checked into rehab. If Lamar is still missing, we hope he returns to his family soon.
Khloe Kardashian Changes Twitter Pic — No More Lamar Odom
Has Khloe finally had enough? She looks sexy and independent in her new Twitter profile picture as she stands solo on top of two parked Mercedes Benz SUVs, one black and one white. We can’t help but think the new photo is a message to Lamar.
The profile pic the reality star originally had on her Twitter page was a close-up of Khloe and Lamar smiling and wearing similar hats that spelled out the words “Best Friends.” Khloe wore a blue hat with the word “Best” on it, and Lamar wore a red hat with the word “Friends” on it.
So sad! Is this a sign that Khloe is moving on?
Khloe Kardashian’s Family Urges Her To Leave Lamar Odom
The Kardashian family, in particular Khloe’s mom, Kris Jenner, wants Lamar out of the picture for good, a source tells US Weekly.
"She is livid that Lamar could have driven with Khloe in the car intoxicated."
Kris has been urging her daughter to leave Lamar once and for all, HollywoodLife.com reported EXCLUSIVELY.
"Kris is desperate for Khloe to divorce Lamar," says an insider. "She thinks he is bad news and that Khloe can do much better."
"Another reason Kris wants Khloe to dump Lamar is because he has absolutely nothing to offer her or the family. He isn't officially signed with any team. He won't go to rehab, and he is a bad influence on Rob [Kardashian]. Kris thinks that Lamar has tarnished the family name with philandering and drug use,” explains the family friend.
In her latest tweet, Khloe posted a pic of herself with big, wild hair and tweeted, “My spirit animal right huuuuuur #BigHairDontCare”. Is she trying to say that doesn’t care about Lamar anymore?
Where is Lamar Odom?
As of Sept.5, there are still conflicting reports about where Lamar is. TMZ is reporting that the basketball star never checked into rehab, while People maintains the athlete entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.
The question stills remains a mystery. We just hope that wherever Lamar is, he is safe and supported.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Is Khloe trying to send a message to Lamar by changing her Twitter profile pic?

Kanye West On Kim Kardashian’s Nude Shoot Dreams — He Wants To Watch
Our well-placed source says Kanye, 36, would clear his schedule immediately to accompany Kim, 32, to her possible shoot and watch her do her thing.
“Hell yeah he would go and then he’d make them get out of the room so they could handle some business alone,” a source close to the couple reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He likes being in control and I wouldn’t be surprised if he started to direct the whole damn shoot.”
Kanye thinks Kim doing Playboy would be a sexy and smart move, and he supports her 100 percent.
“He thinks it’s brilliant,” says the source. “If Kim wants to do it and if it’s something that’s going to make her happy, he’s all for it.”
“He likes all that sexy sh*t Kim be doing. He likes her confidence,” the source adds. “How many guys out there can say there girl was on the cover of Playboy?”
Not many! It’s great that Kayne is being so supportive of Kim!
Why Kim Kardashian Wants To Pose For ‘Playboy’
We told you Kim was already thinking about ways to celebrate her post-baby body even before she gave birth to her daughter, North West.
"As soon as I pop this thing out, I want to do Playboy or some nude shoot," Kim said on a teaser promo clip for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
