So I've been taking a lot of heat for my Design Star update/recaps. Look, I never said its a good show. I love a lot of reality shows that are either well done or just bad but fun to watch (like The Hills, Project Runway, Top Chef, Flipping Out, etc.) - this isn't one of them. And I never said it was. But my friend Matt is on this one - and he's good. So these updates are a means for keeping up with what happened on the show for anyone interested that can't watch or doesn't want to. This update is actually a week old, but I usually wait a few days before posting an update for the sake of anyone watching later on tivo anyway. (I'm a little behind due to the All Star Game trip, but tonight's episode update will come in a few days.) So, here's what happened on last weeks episode:
