Me too, sunnydayz.
Much as I despise Michelle, this week's "challenge" was SO unfair to ALL of 'em, clear across the board, that I felt I had no other choice BUT to reasonably say that EVERY LAST DESIGNER was blameless for this mess this week.
I DON'T know what Michelle's personal issue is with Patricia --- and it's VERY clear she HAS one --- but I have gotten WAY past sick and tired of her dumping on Patricia week after week, also. Far as I can tell, too, you're right: Patricia thus far has not really ripped Michelle a new one in a PI.
And, to me, that says that the problem is MICHELLE, not Patricia.
Michelle's too evil to have given Patricia a heads-up on what's coming, I believe (if that's what you meant). So perhaps the only GOOD thing about this is that Patricia wasn't aware of Michelle's TRUE thoughts/opinions and just therefore kept doing what she usually did.
If I were Patricia, though, I wish I could tell you for a fact that I WOULDN'T rip Michelle a new one when I saw her next (after a lot of these eps have aired).
But, I'm not that good.
