more drama from Runway’s Morgan.

more drama from Runway’s Morgan.
Saying that Project Runway has a “drama queen,” singular, is a bit like saying Donald Trump has a dollar. Nevertheless, the Dallas Morning News headlines its piece on Morgan Quinn, one of the models, “Project Runway’s drama queen.”

Morgan was eliminated on this week’s episode (with very little drama, surprisingly, unless her post-elimination meltdown was edited out). But she continues to stay in the spotlight; the Morning News reports that a while ago, Morgan did a shoot for their magazine , and “she spent most of the day on her cellphone, only pausing to ask when she would be through.” So, they “nicknamed her The Brat.”

Meanwhile, another Morgan meltdown made the news this week. Page Six reported that, after showing up late to a show because of a car accident, Morgan “walked off the set in tears, saying she’d suffered a concussion in the accident and felt ‘dizzy.'” That dizziness cost her a couple grand. “Not only did Quinn lose her $8,000 payday, but Carlisle has slapped her with a $2,000 cancellation fee,” the paper says.

Morgan defends herself, saying, “I’m not Naomi Campbell, you know. I’ve had people say they don’t wanna work with me after watching the show. It has hurt me. If it was a real job, I would have taken it more seriously–but it was a reality show about people who had three hours to make dresses!” Despite the drama, she’ll continue to walk, because as the Dallas Morning News says, “Her runway walk is the best on the show.”
