Big news for America's most acne-prone design talent: teen and tween designers are getting their own fashion reality competition on Lifetime.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered up the new series, Threads, from the producers of Project Runway. The series will be hosted by reality TV star Vanessa Simmons and Project Runway alum Christian Siriano.
Lifetime is also developing a dental extreme makeover show (Smile), a hairstylist show (Worst Stylist Ever) and a docu-series from Gene Simmons (Ugly Models).
This confirms my theory that reality television exists to prove that the idea of progress is a comforting myth, and not the fulcrum of our civilization.
