Two people freak out, quit Project Runway

Project Runway started filming its 10th season a week ago last Friday, and a report says two designers quit the show this Friday, apparently unable to handle the psychological pressure. They freaked out so much that Michael Kors had to “calm them down” with “a pep talk.”

That’s according to Page Six, which cites a source who said one designer, “had an episode as the show filmed at Parsons School for Design. A psychologist was brought in to talk to him, but he seemed too nervous and it was decided he should leave the show,” which followed a woman quitting. The source says, “She just ran off in the middle of the night. The next morning she wasn’t in her bed, her suitcase was gone. Producers went to her home, and her doorman said she was upstairs but didn’t want to see anyone.”
