TLC’s What Not to Wear: A Behind the Scenes Look

An article in the Austin American-Statesman details a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to be on TLC’s “What Not to Wear.” Editor Addie Broyles was nominated by her fiancee and got to receive a head-to-toe makeover. Among the more interesting details:

  •  A stylist actually helped her pick out her clothes.
  • They tried to straighten her hair, and she cried.
  • She doesn’t think Stacy and Clinton “get” the Austin style and how dressed down mothers need to be when chasing after young children. (She said this during a live blog while watching the show.)
  • Another Austinite who was on the show, Kathy Garth, actually tried to back out before going to New York and sounds disappointed with her experience, telling the Statesman:  “They whisk you away to la-la land, it’s all make believe.”

Ex-Bachelor Andy Baldwin Talks to Us Weekly

In a somewhat boring interview with Us Weekly, Andy Baldwin talks about his experiences working in Palau as part of an underwater recovery team. 

Kudos to Us Weekly for the exclusive interview, but it would have been nice to hear some questions about what went wrong with Tessa, the woman he gave the final rose to and dated for several months before they broke up.Or what about allegations from former Bachelorettes, such as Kate, that he wasn’t exactly an officer and a gentleman?
