Man Sues "Project Runway"

klum.jpgOften a sign of a successful TV show is how many lawsuits it inspires. Then there are times when that theory just blows up in your face. This seems like one of those times. ABC News is reporting that someone actually thinks they can make a buck off of Bravo's "Project Runway."

Writer Joel Lamontagne has sued producers claiming that the show is actually something that he penned two years ago. Did he just get a subscription to "TV Guide" or something? Maybe the producers of "America's Next Top Model" have a suit against him. Wouldn't that be some sweet irony?

Even funnier, Lamontagne seeks "tens to hundreds of millions" in payback. "We think they took this idea, promoted it and it's been a big success," said Ivan Schwartz, Lamontagne's lawyer. Unfortunately, they don't define the word "success." Hopefully Merriam-Webster will not be called as witness.

The new season of "Project Runway" premieres Wednesday, December 7 at 10:00 p.m. (EST) on Bravo. -- Rachel Cericola
