Wendy is wrapped up in levels of delusion *so deep* that I doubt that anything anyone could say to her would cause her to feel remorse over her slimy tactics or reevaluate her design abilities. And unfortunately, there are a few good signs out there for the Pepper to gloat over.Originally Posted by Closet Fan
1. Tim Gunn praised her work quite highly in the finale's Tim's Take. Yes, he previously did call her a mere dressmaker and yes, he probably only praised her collection because she was a finalist and he was obligated to. But he still did it, and I'm sure she'll always feel that since she passed muster by his eyes, she did well.
2. Some of the fashion reviews that covered the Project Runway collections were fairly positive about her work. They called her collection deeply unpolished, but not all of the reviews were negative.
3. She's now got any number of "Defendys" on the web who praise her as being deeply maligned by the eeeevil cool kids of Project Runway and blah blah blah. And I'm sure not *all* of them are sockpuppets. They're instant validation for her. (After all, the 200 supportive emails (out of the 3 million ppl who visited her site...) cheered her up soooo much!
So, yeah, though she's now maligned by the vast majority of Project Runway viewers and her collection was amateur's night next to Kara's and Jay's, she's not about to quit inflicting her hideous designs on the world just yet-- though, really, if there's any justice in this world, SHE WOULD.
Though at the least, I'm cheered up by the thought that she'll probably be unable to find any chic stores and botiques (like Saks [Austin] and Baguetta Life [Jay]) who want to sponsor her work and help make her famous. She'll probably end up running that little shop she was talking about out of her filthy rich southern town for lack of anything else to do.
