Here's a good way to piss off Harvey Weinstein: Bail on your hosting gig three weeks before filming starts. According to the Post, that's what Rosie Huntington-Whitely did, and the production company is none to happy about it. The British model was supposed to be the new host of Project Runway All Stars, replacing Angela Lindvall, but pulled out at the last minute when she got a better offer (that would be a spot in the Mad Max remake). A source told the Post the Weinstein Co. threatened to sue Rosie, though now apparently the situation has been smoothed over and fans will have Estee Lauder model Carolyn Murphy to look forward to in the host role.
The show started filming in early June, with Georgina Chapman and Isaac Mizrahi as judges and Marie Claire’s Joanna Coles as the mentor. Guest stars have included Kylie Minogue, Stacy Keibler, and Katie Holmes.
