Bravo sent me an advance copy of the Isaac Mizrahi- and Kelly Rowland-hosted “The Fashion Show,” which premieres May 7. And who is one of the contestants? Andrew Christian, whom I interviewed last summer when he did four fashion shows in Dallas.
I headlined the article THE PANTY CHRIST â€” inspired after Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra delivered a lecture at The Granada Theater where he talked about the Kennedys’ 1985 “Frankenchrist” album. And I thought, “Hey, I bet that’s where Marilyn Manson got the idea for his song ‘AntiChrist Superstar.’” And while I was working with headlines for my story on Andrew â€” like “Sister Christian” â€” I thought of, ta-dah, “Panty Christ.”
Well, on the first episode â€”Â when Andrew meets the other contestants â€” he says, “I’m an underwear designer. A lot of people know me as The Panty Christ.” Which was met with much laughter.
And y’all thought I was so crass because I asked Andrew how he removes skid marks from his fancy $30 underoos.
I want a free jockstrap or something.
