Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen is constantly being dragged through the mud for her provocative outfits, immature behavior, and risque statements. Now, the usually even-keeled fashion guru Tim Gunn, a recent guest star on GG, has some particularly harsh, uh, feedback for the young actress.
And, judging by the severity of his statements, she definitely wasn't trying to make it work. In fact, she must have really pissed off the Project Runway host!
In addition to calling Momsen "sad" and "pathetic," and complaining that she was on her BlackBerry incessantly, Tim Gunn described his experience working with Momsen this way:
"What a diva! 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?'"
Let's recap, shall we? Bratty behavior. Always on the phone. Entitled attitude. Sounds pretty much like a teenager, doesn't it? Which is not-so-shocking when we remember that Momsen is only 17 years old.
So what's Tim Gunn's excuse for acting like a brat?
Momsen's unprofessional behavior is entirely unacceptable, sure. But maybe Tim Gunn would do well to mentor the young star or simply suggest she get some help instead of blasting her in the press (which seems like a pretty sad move for the ordinarily classy fashion guru).
And when it comes right down to it, which is more pathetic? A teenager acting immaturely. Or an adult making fun of a teenager in order to promote his new book (Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work). Just sayin'.
Do you think Tim Gunn was overly rude to Taylor Momsen? Or do you think Taylor deserves the harsh words?
