Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

As we didn't post on Thursday, which was some kind of a holiday, we didn't get to mention that Project Runway is short one Dallasite: Grange Hall/Urban Flower's Jeffrey Marion Lee, who was sent packing after he failed to impress Very Special Guest Sarah Jessica Parker with this mess of a dress.

Lee today gives an exit interview to TV Guide's Web site, in which he second-guesses his design ("Looking back I would have made a much safer, wearable, basic dress, and I think I would still be on the show"), laments his quick adios from the runaway franchise ("It's really jolting to be kicked off, and you can't forget about it") and picks a winner ("I think Rami will definitely win"). --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
