Project Runway: LL Cool J Guest Judges The Music Challenge

The five remaining designers turn up the volume and hit a few wrong notes as they create outfits inspired by a music genre -for each other! And it's not all that harmonious as Suede designs a rock n roll look for Jerell, Kenley tackles a hip-hop look for Leanne, Korto punks up Suede, Jerell tries to makes Kenley pop, and Leanne countrifies Korto. Here are Blindie's top 15 moments:

  1. Leanne steals Suede's model Tia, because she felt "Suede had a real advantage...this is a competition and Tia is a real asset."
  2. Korto warns Suede "if you have any problems with anything, I prefer if you tell me to my face before Tim gets here because I don't want to have to snap on you in front of Tim! Okay?!"
  3. Korto shutting down Kenley as she tries to move in on her meeting time with Leanne - "No, your 30 minutes were up 30 minutes ago! I'm gonna get Hip-Hop on you in a minute!"
  4. Korto testifies like she's in church! - "I have to own it, I have to claim it. In the name of Jesus! I am going to Bryant Park!"
  5. Kenley rapping and Korto doing her best Dolly Parton! Too much!
  6. Tim finally tells Kenley off as he tries to clue her in to the fact that her design may not hip-hop "You need to listen. It will it benefit you as a designer. It will help if you remove the sarcasm and the facetiousness.
  7. Kenley's over confidence that annoyed Leanne in episode nine is back with avengeance! "What does Tim really know about hip-hop anyway," she argues. "I definitely know more about hip-hop than Tim does." And this is after she picks out a floral fabric and says it looks like grafitti. Hello, the year is 2008, grafitti hasn't been a part of hip-hop since like over a decade.
  8. Kenley tries to blame Leanne for her out of tune look - "Leanne is not trying to sell my look. She looks like a big fat poser."
  9. Heidi Klum introduces guest judge LL Cool J as a musical innovator and a style icon. Funny, everywhere else he's called a rapper.
  10. Korto's honkytonk badonkadonk! Heidi even compliments the silhouette of her country backside - and did we hear a little Borat accent there? - "very naaace."
  11. Kenley catches serious attitude as the designers rip apart her un-hip-hop look!
  12. Suede looks like a low rent Boy George in Korto's punk look. But he did rock it down the runway!
  13. We love how Jerell sexes up Kenley into a pop princess! And apparently we're not the only ones loving Kenley Spears because when Heidi says she wanted to see more support in the chest, LL Cool J quips "they look supported!"
  14. We're happy Korto won the challenge, but we totally feel Jerell was robbed! Just like in episode 5!
  15. The preview for next week's episode has Jerell, Korto and Kenley CRYING! We...can...not...wait!

Ga Ga: Salma Hayek & Jimmy Kimmel’s Musical Feud (‘You’re No Penelope Cruz!’)

Jimmy Kimmel tries to convince Salma Hayek that "traditional sit-down interviews" in the U.S. include a make out session, with a hilarious song and dance routine of Gershwin's "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off." The video includes cameos by Jennifer Esposito, Sofia Vargas, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, comedians Kevin James and Adam Corolla, and a variety of Latino elements (mariachis, flamenco dancers, and fifth grade beginner Spanish phrases like "Where is the train station?"). Blindie's favorite part is Kimmel insulting Hayek by saying, "You're no Penelope Cruz!" Hayek (who looks AMAZING in her post-baby bod!!!), gets all telenovela with the melodramatics!

After being renewed for a full season, 90210 2.0 returned with an all new episode, which found Annie thinking of losing her virginity, Spring Awakening opening at the school's theater, Naomi trying to fix her parents' divorce and Brenda trying to save a cracked out theater queen! Here are Blindie's Top Ten moments from Tuesday's episode: 1. Naomi cares for her help: "Penelope's at home feeding her family," she tells her mom after she requests that their maid feeds them. 2. Annie's dad Harry catches her heavily making out with Ty Collins! "The boys here are different than the boys back in Kansas. I should know, I used to be one of them," daddy Harry tells his wife. 3. Naomi's mom bitch slaps her dad! 4. Annie gets the "I may be losing my virginity to this cool boy" talk from her mom. 5. Spring Awakening lead Adrianna is so cracked out that Annie nabs the lead! 6. "Not everyone's a ho-bot like you, Naomi," Silver tells Naomi of advising Annie to do Ty. Silver then awesomely cringes at Ethan piggy-backing Naomi. 7. Ty books him and Annie a room at the Roosevelt Hotel for the show's after-party. She then wears a slut-tastic mini dress for her big night! 8. Annie asks for Dixon's condom! "This is a pretty disturbing moment between us, isn't it?" he asks. She then bumps into Ethan in the hall, where she drops her condom. "The guy is a total player," Ethan tells Annie. "Wouldn't you rather save yourself for someone who cares for you?" 9. Silver kisses Dixon--and they totally make out! "We're gonna take it slow," she demands. "Silver, you're being bossy!" he says. 10. Annie catches the cracked out, post-coital Adrianna in Ty's hotel room. "He didn't tell you to meet him here too, did he?" Adrianna asks. She's the male version of Gossip Girl's Chuck--she's totally scheming!
