Project Runway’s Heidi Klum and Chris March get their own reality shows

A former Project Runway cast member, Chris March, and the show’s host, Heidi Klum, are both getting their own reality shows.

Heidi will host a new series on Lifetime, the new home of the fashion competition, that’s basically Kids Say the Darndest Things. Its working title is Seriously Funny Kids, and it “will feature Klum interacting with children and bringing out the hilarious and often insightful things they say,” according to the network, which will debut 20 half-hour episodes next year. I hope Heidi gets to auf them if they’re not funny enough.

Meanwhile, Bravo is giving season four contestant Chris March his own docudrama. It’s in development on The Chris March Project, which is a working title and also very dull. The show “will follow Chris and his eccentric crew of fashion misfits as they create a one-of-a-kind design for his loyal clientele, which includes everyone from Madonna to Meryl Streep,” according to Bravo, which says drama comes as “Chris pushes the boundaries of fashion and challenges his clients’ comfort zones.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
