This story comes via Jezebel, and it’s about our beloved boyfriend Tim Gunn. Tim is in the midst of his publicity tour for his epic tell-all Bitches Be Trippin’. I wish – no, the book is actually called Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work. This morning, Tim went on Regis & Kelly to discuss the book, and he brought his attitude with him, thank God. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the tsunami of bitchy hilarity that we’ve previously covered – instead, Tim just decided to take Anna Wintour out – AGAIN. Previously, Tim had told a story about Wintour that got wide play – basically, that Anna made her bodyguards carry her down flights of stairs because Dame Wintour wouldn’t deign to walk in her heels at an event.
So, in the Regis & Kelly interview, Regis asks Tim for his biggest diva story, and Tim talks more about Wintour. Tim repeats the story about Wintour being carried by her bodyguards, then says that when Anna heard that Gunn was telling the story, “she went ballistic and ‘this must be retracted and you must rescind the statement. It‘s untrue…’” Then Gunn verbally bitchslaps Anna once again: “Well, it was true and there were many witnesses to it. I wasn’t the only one who saw it. And the reason it appears in my book is because her reaction to it. And the message is, the gold rule is: accept responsibility for your own behavior. If you’re going to be carried down five flights of stairs, own up to it.” He also talks about her “working a Manolo” – it’s pretty priceless:
Fabulous. I love him. I love that he’s THE ONE person to call Wintour out. Maybe he can take on Blake Lively next? Perhaps.
By the way, did everyone see Tim bitch out Gretchen on Project Runway two episodes ago? That sh-t was magical. Tim needs to bitch out contestants more often.
