Project Runway’s Kenley Collins – Narcissitic Personality Disorder?

-

“I wasn’t trying to be elegant Heidi” spat out Project Runway’s Kenley Collins in tonight’s episode of Project Runway in response to host Heidi Klum’s criticism of her dress.

In the penultimate episode before New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park the task was to make an evening gown that has an organic feel based on being inspired by flora at New York Botanic Gardens.

However tonight’s episode was more about contestant Kenley Collins rather then the fashions.

Kenley appears to have a talent for rubbing the people the wrong way. But she is completely perplexed on how she manages to alienate her peers.

It got me thinking does Kenley have a narcissistic personality disorder?
Mental Health defines narcissistic personality disorder as a condition characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others.

Individuals with this disorder are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior. Many highly successful individuals might be considered narcissistic. However, this disorder is only diagnosed when these behaviors become persistent and very disabling or distressing.

Vulnerability in self-esteem makes individuals with this disorder very sensitive to criticism or defeat. Although they may not show it outwardly, criticism may haunt these individuals these individuals and may leave them feeling humiliated, degraded, hollow, and empty. They may react with disdain, rage, or defiant counterattack.

Their social life is often impaired due to problems derived from entitlement, the need for admiration, and the relative disregard for the sensitivities of others. Though their excessive ambition and confidence may lead to high achievement; performance may be disrupted due to intolerance of criticism or defeat.

Ok so that is my diagnosis via google.

But love her or hate her she sure has made Project Runway Season 5 entertaining.

Reality Tidbits

Wes Carr Auditioned For Australian Idol Because His Pub Audience Was More Interested In The Football.

Here in the Courier Mail is an article where Wes Carr, the winner of Australia Idol reveals why he auditioned for Idol. Combine 20 in the audience and football on the TV and you have it.

The Amazing Race Casting Director Says It Is A Relationship Game Not A Race Around The World.
In an interview on Reality Blurred Lynne Spillman the casting director of The Amazing Race said she casts on the strength of the stories of the relationship and how the race will test them.

“We want to know where they are, how their relationship is going to change on the race. You’ll see happy dating couples, but they’re usually at a crossroads of, you know, moving in together or getting engaged. You’ll see happily married couples but they’re a little bit in a slump or they’re about to retire. They always have a story where the Race is going to change something, and people don’t get that when they apply,” Spillman told me.

Also she will not cast Survivor cast members unless they have a high profile like Rob and Amber.

Project Runway – Season 5 – Episode 5

-

I am really finding it hard to look at Heidi Klum without cringing now that I know her husband Seal has names for her boobs. For those who want to know he calls them Franz and Hans. Now I know men have been known to name their genitals but who names breasts?

After Heidi told the designers they were going to design for a high powered and chic professional woman. Blayne was hoping it would not be Hilary Clinton as “she would not look good in a neon pantsuit.”

Stella wanted Sharon Osbourne ‘cos “she is the queen of rock”.

However it was Brooke Shields. But they were not to design for her but for her character on her show Lipstick Jungle.

They had to create a night look for Brooke’s character on Lipstick Jungle. The look has to carry her from day to night. The winner’s outfit will be worn by her on Season 2. So that answered my question on whether the show had been renewed.

The designers were going to have to work in pairs, with Brooke picking six designs she liked. They were given $150 for materials.

Suede who was partnered with Terri, and he was not coping with the design or the fabric. Terri was exasperated and said “no one is going to suck on my titty, he needs to man up.”

The winner of the challenge was Keith with his design of a pattern colour top with a brown floaty skirt.

But I preferred Jerrel’s.

The person eliminated was Kelli with her outfit which Michael Kors quite rightly called slutty.

Exit interview with Kelli on Buddy TV.
