The list of reasons we wish Tim Gunn were our father continues to grow. The fashion mentor and author shot a Gossip Girl cameo last week, and had some pretty harsh things to say about teenage star Taylor Momsen.
Apparently Taylor couldn’t keep track of her lines to save her life and was constantly on her Blackberry between takes. According to Tim, she’s driving the entire crew bonkers with her diva behavior. Tim told E!: “She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself ‘why are we all being held hostage by this brat?”
Tim said that if he were a regular on the show, he’d sit Taylor down and giver her a good talking to. And what would he tell Jenny Humphrey? In Tim’s words, “I’d say, ‘You know young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.’ ”
Well put, Tim Gunn. Well put.
