This just in (courtesy of Star magazine): Michael Knight, a "Project Runway" finalist, has a secret, uh, now-public admirer: pop star Brandy (of "Moesha" and "America's Got Talent.") According to the gossipers at Star, Brandy, 27 - a.k.a. Brandy Norwood - and Knight, 28, locked eyes on each other during a meet-and-greet in Atlanta.
Sources close to Brandy told Star that "he's the perfect gentleman and has really won her affection. They're so smitten with each other that they're racking up frequent flier miles."
Now, for "PR" fans, that means we'll have to watch Wednesday night's Part 1 finale episode (at 10 p.m. on Bravo) even closer as they lead up to Olympus Fashion Week. Will Brandy be sitting front row and center? Will she blow Michael a kiss when he takes his bow?
Will the other three finalists be upstaged by a high-profile romance?
Personally, I picked Michael weeks ago to win it all. I still think he will, even after his recent fashion fiasco with that plum-colored silk charmeuse gown. Mentor Tim Gunn thought it was "rather basic." And I agreed. Not to mention: Too much skin!
Come on, Michael, sportswear is your fashion passion. Show us the goods. Brandy apparently will be watching - so will the rest of us.
