Friday Video #43: She's Homeless

Designer Jay McCarroll, the first season winner of Project Runway, was one of the people featured in a new article by New York Magazine on what happens to Bravo reality show contestants after their fifteen minutes are up. It declared that Jay was "homeless." He said that “I haven’t been living anywhere for two years...I sleep at other people’s houses. I sleep here [in my studio] if I’m drunk.”

The same day the article came out, a video was posted on YouTube where Jay, wearing a tacky wig and mismatched outfit, wanders the streets of NYC carrying a sign that says "Will Design For Food." To the tune of Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)." Reality TV stars can have a sense of humor!

UPDATE: Page Six of the New York Post reaveled that Jay's comments to New York magazine were meant to be sarcastic. A friend said that “Jay is not homeless. He lives in a beautiful building on the Upper West Side, and has recently been tapped to head up the re-launch of classic ’80s sportswear brand Camp Beverly Hills, and also has his own line and show premiering on QVC this fall.”
