Heidi Klum: “people should be demonstrating outside of Harvey Weinstein’s house”

Although Project Runway 6 taped its finale at the end of last month at Fashion Week, there’s no end in sight for the ongoing legal battle between the Weinstein Company, NBC Universal, and Lifetime that’s keeping the show off TV.

In December, Heidi Klum said she was “positive” the show would air in January, she now wants fans to protest, and clearly has lost her confidence. “I think that people should be demonstrating outside of Harvey Weinstein’s house. If it were up to me, it would be on by now,” she said, according to WENN.

Meanwhile, Tim Gunn told ABC News that “Season 6 is really great. It’s stronger than Season 5. Our backdrop was L.A., which ended up being fabulous, and I was one of the skeptical ones who went. … I’m crossing my fingers that this season airs. We’re tied up in this court case. It could be weeks or months before there’s a resolution.”
