Future “Project Runway” participants, be forewarned: Fool around and waste Tim Gunn's time, and his response will not be pretty.
Gunn, the typically measured host of the Bravo reality fashion design competition, didn’t mince words about his experience working with Taylor Momsen, 17, while he was shooting his guest appearance on The CW's "Gossip Girl."
“What a diva!" Gunn said to E! News of the singer/actress, who plays the wayward Jenny Humphrey on the soapy series. “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?"
Oh, but wait - there’s more. Gunn said that if he were a series regular, Momsen would be in for quite the lecture.
“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?'
According to Gunn, Momsen was “on her phone during every break," and he wanted to tell her, "'If you weren't on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.' "
At one point the director even leaned in to whisper, “'this is day in, day out, my life,’” Gunn said. “She annoyed the entire crew."
