She’s been in a lot of situations lately that don’t really work for her life plan, but this is her taking back the control she feels she’s lost in her life. We are proud of her. What does not amuse us, however, is the behavior of her daughter

Highlights from the workroom included Michelle Lesniak slicing her finger open; Jasper Garvida gluing lace onto his corset, sending his fellow designers into a tizzy (“It’s bulls–t!”); and Evan Biddell telling Dmitry Sholokhov

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “Made in Staten Island”
