It Was Seven Years Ago Today

Posted on July 22, 2013

We can hardly believe it’s true ourselves, but seven years ago today, we hastily slapped together a post declaring our love for Project Runway season 3 contestant Laura Bennett and we were off and running, on an adventure neither of us could have predicted.

Before we get to work bringing y’all the bitchery you came here for, we’d like to take a moment to pause, reflect, and thank the Bitter Kittens for their support.

 

 

Okay, enough pausing. Look at our book cover!

 

We could act all cool and shit about it, but we danced around like pre-teen girls in front of a Harry Styles poster when we saw that our l’il ol’ book was finally available for pre-order (here and here, among many other places) and figured our seventh blogiversary would be the best time to unveil it and brag about it a little. Sue us. We’re so excited we could pee.

Doesn’t it look like a cartoon Elizabeth Montgomery is about to fly through the title on a broom? Or is that just us? Because that’s literally what we said to our editor when presented with a range of font styles. “We want the one that looks like Bewitched!”

Also, we love it because it reminds us of the pink-and-purple blogspot theme we first used for Project Rungay, as well as our many “Virgins & Vixens” posts from long ago, awash as they were in mid-Century glamour photography. In other words, you have to be a long-time BK to see it, but the cover really pays tribute to our own site’s history in a way.

We’re feeling squishy and sentimental. That’s no good. We have dresses to rip today.

 

All attention-seeking aside, we really do thank all of y’all for your support over the years, as you watched us go from grubby, fumbling fan bloggers to … whatever it is we are today. Grubby, fumbling fan bloggers with a book deal and a publicity photo, we guess. Either way, we truly, no-bullshit-even-though-it-sounds-like-it could NOT have done it without our Bitter Kittens. We love you guys.

 

Okay, onward; to seven more years of bitchery.

      I love your website. It makes me smile and makes my day a little brighter. I have been a fickle reader of other blogs, but I have come back to you almost everyday for about 4 years. Cannot wait to buy the book!!

      • mshesterp

        It’s the first place I go to (well, after Gmail) every day, and it’s the first site I hit when I need a brain break (usually multiple times throughout the day.) TLo’s delightful bitchery warms this little librarian’s heart!

      • Allison Drury

        My sister and I share our favorite TLo posts several times a week (a recent fave was Reese Witherspoon shopping in Brentwood). Your blog keeps us connected 2000 miles away from each other. I just preordered your book for both of us. Can’t wait to read and discuss!

      • drdarke

        WTG on the book and seven years, TLo!

        I came here from John Teti’s PROJECT RUNWAY reviews on the AV Club, after you got repeatedly mentioned as Another Place I Could Find PR Reviews – and I stayed to find my Inner Bitter Kitten….

    • carolynmo

      I love this so much. I’m proud of you two.

    • http://skinorsouls.com skinorsouls

      • Rhonda Shore

        i’m a relatively new bitter kitten but I don’t know how i watched Mad Men and PR without you guys! It’s SO enhanced my enjoyment of those shows. Yours is the only blog i read on a daily basis.

    • veriance

      Already ordered the book. Thrilled to bits for your richly deserved success!

    • niftywench

    • Vaniljekjeks

      Congratulations!!! I love you guys as much as a strange Scandinavian woman can love two fabulous men she’s never met.

    • almondemy

      Congratulations! You gentlemen have a wonderful collective voice and it has been so much fun reading your blog. Thank you for contributing such thoughtful and insightful dialogue, and thank you for making the internet a fun, fabulous place to be!

    • yulaffin

      Congrats on your new book and thanks for many years of great reading.

    • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

      Awesome guys. And the book will be out just in time for my birthday. CAN’T. WAIT.

    • estella_nyc

      I am so proud of you guys – I’ve been a loyal follower since around 2007 and I can definitely see the inspiration behind the cover photo. Congratulations and here’s to the next 7 years!

      PS – Also – Virgins vs. Vixens? I MISS THAT SERIES SO MUCH!

      • Judy_J

        Was a winner declared? If so, I missed it. If I remember correctly, it was down to Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren,

    • Ron Zank

      Congratulations, gentlemen. It couldn’t happen to a more-deserving pair.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      Mazel tov, boys. You earned it.

    • veleri

      *fangirling*

      congratulations guys! lots of hugs and love!

    • desi_girl

      Congratulations, TLo! Your blog’s birthday is the same as my mom’s, so that makes you all the more awesome! :D

      Needless to say, I love your blog. But, what I am truly impressed with is how you two have given rise to a new language and fashion vocabulary for your followers. The comments section is a reflection of that. Not to mention a keen sense of assessing style.

      Here’s to many, many more years of fabulousness and always spot-on bitchery! :)

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Champagne toast to you both.

    • tboscardin

      Rejoice! (sigh) I did so love those “Virgins & Vixens” posts ;)

      • MaryMitch

        They were a lot of fun!

      • H2olovngrl

        Musical Mondays were some of my favorite posts. I remember laughing til I cried at many of them. To Tom and Lorenzo, thank you for being that one thing on the internet that I love so much that I NEVER miss a post. Happy to have been here and seen your meteoric rise. Thanks for bringing some fabulousness to this not always fabulous mom and housewife. Congratulations.

    • carnush

      You guys deserve it all! Your blog is the sunshine in my day! Congrats!!!!

    • Introspective

      thank you both for cohering such an incredibly smart and witty community! thanks for your brilliance as commentators on fashion, celebrity and our times in general.

      love you two. happy birthday!

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I could not be more thrilled for you and with you. You both deserve every bit of happiness, and success you have gotten, and will doubtlessly receive. I am already on pre-order myself, and will be waiting impatiently, like a pre-teen girl for a sign up, should you come to SF on your signing binge.

      MWAH!

      • Anathema_Device

        OMG! SF book signing! Must have a Bay Area Bitter Kitten meet up!!!

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          I’ve been wanting to create something of that sort for a long time anyhow. Perhaps a Facebook page where we could meet and discuss it off site.

          • Kt

            I’d be happy to help manifest a gathering of BK’s in these parts. We are not alone in the longing.
            A few months ago my pal yelled from her car window when she saw you walking to work one day then made me play a guessing game about who she had seen. From her enthusiastic but brief clue, I guessed on the second try. Tlo was first.

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              Then we have a beginning!
              I’m thinking most likely a Saturday evening or Sunday day event would work most well for all concerned.

              Let me create a facebook page and ask our hosts if I may post the link for it here.

            • Anathema_Device

              Fantastic! I’m in! I haven’t been visiting T Lo as much as I’d like the past couple of months, but I’m still a devoted BK.

            • another_laura

              I’m in!

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              I’ve created a page on facebook, and am awaiting permission to post the link in comments here.

        • Judih1

          Great idea! A Bay Area BK meet up to meet TLO in person

    • Lola Channing

      well deserved success. Congratulations you lovely lads.

    • Jonathan

      Congratulations on a magnificent seven years.. and thank you for brightening my every morning for the last 5 years that I’ve been following you. For all your wit and bitchery and insight, this Australian boy is very grateful. Cannot wait to read your book!

    • Carole Scofield

      Tomandlorenzo is one of the wittiest things online! Congratulations on all the success, and on your new book. It’s richly deserved!

    • rkdgal

      What a fabulous book cover! Happy Anniversary and best wishes on your future. Here’s one Bitter Kitten who will follow you guys on whatever adventures you are kind enough to share. Can’t wait for my copy to arrive!!

    • Dave Hime

      Congratulations guys! Here’s to 7 or 70 more years!

    • par3182

    • Pat Hardy

      You guys are simply fabulous every day. A longtime BK, Path

    • AC Simons

      As a long-time fan, I couldn’t be happier for you both. As others have said, you brighten my day, make me laugh and make me think. I’m so glad so much good has come your way – you deserve it all. I have the book on pre-order and will be impatiently waiting for it to appear in my mailbox. Also, happy wedding wishes!!

    • housefulofboys

      We love you guys too, now on with the bitchery! BTW, pre-order complete!

    • CeeQ

      Happy anniversary!!! I can’t even remember how I found this blog in the first time but not a day has gone by since that I haven’t checked in :)

      The book looks great & I shall be pre-ordering :) congrats on your success!

      Awww Virgins & Vixens…I miss those cage matches! Also: Musical Mondays! I basically laughed myself into a coma after reading the one for Sound of Music :) love you guys, would totally go all fan girl squeaky if I ever saw you in person so FYI consider yourselves earned :)

      • CeeQ

        *warned

      • Margaret Nikoleit

        I miss Musical Mondays! more than V&Vs although those were great too.

        Glad I’m not the only one.

        • formerlyAnon

          Yeah. I think Musical Mondays were my first love.

        • CeeQ

          I was sick at home yesterday and so went and pulled up all my favourite Musical Mondays! It was so awesome to laugh out loud in between crippling coughs =D

    • Bonnie B

      Woot woot!!!! TLo you improve my stuck-in-an-office-dealing-w-HR-crap on a daily, and often hourly, basis. This bitter kitten calls her dearest friends the T to my Lo :) love you guys

    • kaboobie

      I’m so happy to have discovered your blog, thanks to a fellow Barbie collector who started watching PR with season three for Robert Best, as I did, and recommended your commentary. I’ve watched every season since, and I blame you!

    • Laura V Rizzo

      congratulations, i can’t wait to read it!!!! love the outfits you two are sporting, as well.

    • JenniferA

      Congratulations! !!!!! Love you guys. Thank you for bringing so much fun into our days. Cant wait for the book! !!

    • call_me_schmeg

    • siriuslover

      I cannot wait for your book tour, because it’s the only way I will ever be able to meet you guys (I will seriously skip anything I have to do that day to be at the bookstore). I’ve followed you since that first post and though I don’t post often, I love being part of this community.
      And, YES! I totally thought Bewitched when I saw this cover! Congratulations, and I cannot wait to read it.

    • Annarosa

      I can’t wait to read the book, guys! congratulations! Love the cover and your vests!

    • Nan

      A VERY longtime BK getting a little verklempt here. Mazel, TLo!

    • StelledelMare

      I have been here with you guys since the beginning and have loved every second of it. Thank you for all the work you put into this site and congratulations on the book (can’t wait to get my copy) and the anniversary!!

    • DaveUWSNYC

      A thoughtful, insightful, educational…and hysterical – trip from Kaynebow and Robert and “Rhymes with Glassbowl” Keith to today’s first septennial. As an original Bitter Kitten, I bow to your ability to remain true to yourselves and to find hundreds of fresh ways, every day, of making us laugh and learn. I will always be in your debt for getting me into Laura’s fabulous townhouse for a PR finale! God bless and God speed, gentlemen. We love you!

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Fun times! Drop us a line, doll. We haven’t spoken in forever.

    • sockandaphone

      Congratulation tlo! I’ve been an avid reader for over 2 years and I’m constantly recommending this website. You guys are hilarious and always make my day. You deserve all the good things coming your way.
      And ones again congrats on the future wedding!

    • SugarSnap108

      So excited about your book — Congratulations!

      And thank you for your tireless efforts to spread fashion bitchery hither and yon.

    • Roz

      All the success in the world to you, Lorenzo and Tom (thought L. might like seeing his name first, hahaha)! NO ONE deserves it more than you two–you write with integrity and generosity and are of course the most entertaining site on the Internet. Thanks for the seven years!!!

    • Qitkat

      Several years back, I won a Talking Tim Gunn bobblehead from you two and have been here almost every day since. Congratulations on your awesome success, and many more years to come! Proud to be one of the original Bitter Kittens :-) As Tim says, *Carry On!*

      • CassandraMortmain

        I too won a Tim bobble head. It’s still sitting on my desk. I’ve been reading you guys since the very beginning. Not quite sure how I found you but I loved the Laura posts. It’s been exciting to follow your progress – you’re really one of the great successes of the blogiverse. Congrats and I’m looking forward to many more years of your wit and insight.

    • WendyD

      Congrats and champagne dreams! Proud to have been a BK from the ProjectRungay days. You’re fantastic and deserve all the success you’re getting! Love my fabulous TLo!

    • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

      I’ve been reading you guys for almost 6+ years. I tell everyone and anyone I know how loves fashion and entertainment and TV shows to check out your blog. I’ve been shouted you guys plenty of times on my blog. I am so happy for your success! Well deserved.

      Now, I’m off to pre-order your book. And, yes, definitely got the “Betwiched” font style down pat.

    • TLJezebel

      I hope you’ll be doing a book tour.

      • CeeQ

        Me too!

    • Jennifer Bober

      I didn’t realize I’d been following you for so long! Happy Blogaversary!!!

      May your smart, witty bitchery continue for years to come. Thanks for all of the laughs and fabulous advice.

    • julnyes

      I just pre-ordered my copy a moment ago. Congratulations on the book and your anniversary guys. I came to your site as a PR fan and stayed because you are so very fabulous and opinionated. PR has long been in the past for me, but I remain a Bitter Kitten because you two are the knees of bees :)

    • Danielle

      Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! This site always brightens my day, and is one of my favorite places on the internet.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Congratulations! Always a wonderful way to start my day.

    • Adrienn Keszei

      Congratulations!!! You guys are the most perfect combination of brilliance, wit, sarcasm, nerdity and style. You deserve this book deal more than 90 % of the people who get published these days. I am so glad to have found your blog (completely by chance about 5 years ago) and I hope I can read your musings for a very-very long time. :)

    • julnyes

      Side Note – I wish there was a hardcover option for the book.

    • Mollye Readinger-Scott

      Hot Damn!! Attaboys all around! This Born in Philly, slummin’ in Ardmore fan is so proud she could weep. Feels a bit like watching my kids in the school play. Wish I could have you come on over and I would find a large magnet and stick you to my fridge next to the soccer team pictures and Upper Darby Summer Stage Rising Star of the week certificate!

    • Elena

      I have been reading you guys daily (literally) for nearly 7 years now. So proud and happy for you two!

    • kolokOlchik

      Congratulations guys!

    • Ozski

      Mazel tov to you two! Wonderful news and I love the cover and have placed my order! Here’s to several more years of sartorial bitchery!

    • Democracy Diva

      Seven years of blogging means you boys successfully got me through all of college AND law school. When I started reading this blog, I was an 18-year-old idiot; now, I am older, more tired, and probably still an idiot, just one with a lot of student loan debt and even more love for TLo. Please make a book tour stop in D.C. so I can thank you guys in person for all the entertainment you’ve provided me with while I procrastinated studying.

    • NoSleepInBklyn

      I’ve been reading you nearly every weekday since you started. I’ve read you as a single lady, as a married lady (on my honeymoon even), in the hospital after having my first kid and will read you this week in the hospital when I have my second kid. You’ve introduced me to tv shows and fashion critique and you’ve made me smile on days when I thought I couldn’t. Thanks for being a part of my life for 7 years. Looking forward to seeing what happens during the next 7. xo, your loyal BK and PUF

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      Many Congratulations to both of you! Love the cursive cover type.

    • Emily Smith

      Yessss pre-ordered it! So excited!

      • Emily Smith

        but shit I have to wait til february? at least there’s a release date unlike the time we preordered the blu-ray extended edition set of LOTR and it didn’t even have a release date yet.

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      Congrats, guys! On a semi-related note, I miss Virgins/Vixens and Musical Mondays. Oh well. All of your success is SO deserved. So proud to be long-time BK!

    • Cortney Dean

      MAZEL TOV! You guys are so awesome and I’m proud to say I’ve been reading since the beginning. Keep up the awesome work, Love, A Loyal Bitter Kitten. (Or Precious Unborn Fawn, your choice)

    • Katie Jackson

      Thank you so much for sharing your genius with us. I haven’t missed a post in five years. You deserve all the best.

      And I’m going to not so subtly hint to my husband that this would make a perfect present.

    • EveEve

      Adding another proud and loyal BK’s voice to the chorus of congratulations on the book, on the blog, and on perseverance! Stay bitchy!

    • elemspbee

      Congratulations T’Lo. It’s beautiful. Looking forward to getting my copy.*
      (and true to being one of your bitchy minions: We gotta wait until Feb 2014 for the book to come out??? damn. We be all old by then!).

    • Wesley Willis

      I’ve been with you all from the very beginning (so I guess I’m one of the original BKs), and I would like to send a well-deserved and heartfelt congratulations to you on seven years of TLO/PRG and on your book. I’ll probably get it when it comes out as a birthday present for myself.

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      I couldn’t be more proud to be a TLo reader. In fact it is reading your blog and hanging on your every post that inspired me to start writing and six years later I am a professional blogger, playwright and national newspaper columnist. All down to Tom & Lorenzo’s fabulous and opinionated instruction. No kidding. Bravo, darlings!

    • LuisaNL

      to 7 more years of bitchery!!! I had completely forgotten about the Virgins & Vixens posts… Congratulations on the book, looks amazing!

    • Girl_With_a_Pearl

      Congratulations! Fabulous cover and even more fabulous photo. You two look amazing. So happy for you!!!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Congratulations on 7 years! Your blog was one of the big reasons why I started watching Mad Men and your insights and humor always help make the day go by a little bit faster. I hope you do a book tour!

    • Erin Reece

      You two bring me SUCH joy and have for many, many years. Congratulations!

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      We love you right back. Your posts give me a laugh at least once a day. I’ve made some fun cyber-friends among the BKs. My knowledge of clothing construction, fashion trends, and design themes has increased exponentially. The inspiration of the TLo website has carried through to my music, where I did a show called “The Songs of Fashion”….got some of my best reviews ever for that one! (BKs, if you would like to hear some of it, write to me.) Thank you for all the knowledge and energy you put into making the site and the posts just wonderful! Can’t wait to get the book…..a perfect Valentine’s Day present, since we have to wait until February.

      Mazel tov, may you have seven times seven more years of bitchery, fun, and rewards! You’ve earned it!

    • AnniNoone

      I am all teary over a couple of guys I’ve never met having such well-deserved good fortune. Is the internet weird or am I? Anyway, as a long-time BK (as I like to say, you’ve had me from “Scissorhandian”), I couldn’t be happier for you. Happy blogday, TLo!

    • Judy_J

      Cheers, guys! As a long-time Bitter Kitten, I toast your success and good fortune! I’ve been following you since (almost) the beginning, and you have never failed to entertain and enlighten. Bravo!

    • MsOlympia

      Tom, I LOVE your quilted vest contraption-thing. It is both sharp and intriguing.

    • Airkisses

      I love you guys, and there’s so much about your blog that sets it apart from others of the ilk: Your refusal to use fashion as an excuse to rip people apart, your awareness of social and minority issues, the warmth with which you address your BKs, the sense of community in the posts, and of course your wonderful style analysis which go way beyond “this is pretty/this looks like a garbage bag” to cover such things as venue-appropriateness, proportions, etc. I know that bloggers are frequently told to “find a voice.” In the case of you guys, you seem so authentic, your voice just shines through. There’s genuine affection for you guys, I feel like.

      So happy anniversary! And many more!

    • decormaven

      February? Ah, the way this year has spun by, it’ll be just a blink and the book will be available. I’ll save my purchase for an instore experience in ATL- because you KNOW The World’s Most Amazing Book Promo Tour is going to make a stop here. Gents, thank you kindly for elevating the tone of discourse on the Web, and for providing such a comfy salon for your devoted BKs. Huzzah! I raise a toast to you both.

    • Tess Danesi

      I cannot wait for this to be on my bookshelf! Thank you for keeping all the BKs entertained for all these years. Sometimes this site is the best thing to happen to my day (which could mean either you’re that good or my life really needs to change). Congratulations. And what’s your second book going to be about? :-)

    • VioletFem

      CONGRATULATIONS! I’ve only been a bitter kitten for 5 of these years but I am still so awed by how much this site has grown. I really love the smart and insightful commentary you provide on fashion. I can’t wait to see what more you will accomplish!

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Happy Blogoversary boys! Off to pre-order the book right now. Well, I may just read the post about Josh H & Jennifer L first…

    • MissMariRose

      It hardly seems like it’s been seven years. You guys still keep it fresh. Happy anniversary, darlings!

    • Jeremiah Capacillo

      I’m so happy for you two!

    • Wendi126

      You had me at vagina hats and pussy bows…..haven’t missed a post in 7 years….love the pic but want to see your hems!! xx

    • Cat

      Pre-ordered! I’ve been reading this blog almost everyday for five years now and I am always delighted by your commentary and the fabulous Bitter Kitten community you’ve nurtured- very few places can boast of a comment section as colorful and intelligent as the posts above. Cheers to your success!

    • TigerLaverada

      Happy anniversary! You guys are always my first stop on my puter when I get home from work, and have been for about 6 years, which is when I discovered your wonderfulness. You’re the best!

    • Frank_821

      Hurray for the gay uncles. wow 7 years

    • Just Me

      Love the cover! And as a long-time lurker, all I can say is that I am proud to be a Bitter Kitten if it means I have uncles like you two. Here’s to at least seven more years of bitchery! *Raising my cocktail*

    • Eileen Duffy

      Love. :)

    • ItsDicey

      Congrats, you two! This is the only blog I read regularly (every day). Love it. Xoxo

      many congratulations to you. I am a long time BK – the season with Laura was my first PR season. I connected with her because we’re the same age and I just liked her overall sensibility. and she had such personal style. All PR seasons went downhill from there because nobody came close to being like her. But PR isn’t about style, its about drama and show business. But I’ll always be a BK and thank you for that. love many times over from a loyal reader in Connecticut.

    • crash1212

      Been with you since the beginning boys! Here’s to many more years. Love the cover. Love the photo. Just pre-ordered the book!

    • conniemd

      I’m a less than one year newbie, and let me say of the multiple Internet sites I bop in an out of and have over your seven years. At this busy point in my life yours is one of only two I visit regularly without fail, as you and the bitter kittens always give me a smile if not an outright belly laugh more than once for the spirit and for the eyes I can always count on beauty, vulgarity, beefcake (which goes from my eyes down to nether regions). What a daily feast for mind and body.

      (I confess the other only regular site I visit is a baseball team message board, just to show the yin and yang of us humans and femininity and masculinity can’t be more stereotyped than fashion and sports.

      Thank you and the BK for this community.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Happy blogiversary! Congratulations – I can’t wait for the book to show up on my doorstep.

    • Frank G

      Congrats boys! It is because of this website that I now have your voice in my head when choosing my own clothes or seeing a poor soul on the street in a size 4 when she is a size 8. I ask myself 1) is this the right fit? 2) is this a flattering color? 3) am I mutton dressed as lamb…and I’m 27 gay man. Love you guys!

    • JulieK

      I’m not so sure you’re all that grubby anymore, that’s a nice pic. Congratulations on 7 years and the book!

    • Poeta Paz

      Felicidades! It was great to find a place on the internet with two of my passions: fashion and good writing!

    • Sharon O’Rourke Frenz

      This probably won’t come out the way I intend, so I’ll just say it and hope you both understand. It’s because of you two (and Sally Field) that I was able to look at my dear, sweet second son and tell him with all my heart that his sexual preference makes no difference in how much I love him. Thank you.

      • makeityourself

        That made me cry.

    • RuthGo

      Congratulations! You bring a great deal of laughter and pleasure to many, many people you will probably never meet, me included. Please keep doing what you’re doing, for 7 x infinity years.

    • http://press-for-attention.tumblr.com/ Miss Jen K

      Congratulations isn’t a strong enough word, but I’m throwing them all around like confetti for you guys. So fantastic; you really deserve all the best. Keep on being your fabulous selves. XO

    • PastryGoddess

      I’ve got my book pre ordered. Are you guys doing a book tour?

    • jmorino08

      SQUEEEEEE! You guys deserve all of your success and more! My day is not complete unless a get to spend a little of it with you two and your snarky brilliance. Congrats and Happy Bloggyversary!!

    • padma sallah

      Congratulations you guys! Coming to the site and reading your posts is one of the best parts of my day! :)

      P.S – And I’m coveting Tom’s quilted jacket so hard.

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      Pre-order complete. Only six months of fainting couch lounging ’til TLo’s royal baby arrives.

    • Victor Beiramar Diniz

      the 7 year (b)itch…. ;)

      congrats TLo!

    • Claudia

      Got my pre-order in; so glad its available in the UK! Now if I can just get the Veronica Mars people to do the same… All the best to you both!

    • OffToSeeHim

      Congratulations!! You had me at “Take it easy Mary, your slip is showing. They’re not taking her outside Parsons and busting a cap in her ass.” :-D

    • disqus_2X7gECWYeA

      Happy Birthday, TLo! Just adding my voice to the chorus of love from your Bitter Kittens. Love you!

    • Musicologie

      Ah, Laura Bennett. She kicked so much ass. Then we found out she was kicking ass for two. I’m pregnant now myself, and I think back about how well she handled it all. I have several inspirational women in my life, but she’s one of my pop culture inspirations during this pregnancy.

      Congratulations on seven years!

    • LaRomaBella

      CONGRATULATIONS! Pre-ordering as we speak!! Can’t wait!

      One question, though! Who did end up winning Virgin vs. Vixens? Marilyn or Sofia?!

    • theanet

      Congratulations, TLo! I can hardly wait. But you know, Tom, I still miss the goatee…

    • random_poster

      Congratulations, Tom and Lorenzo! Your blog is truly a bright spot in my day. Thank you for everything you do to make it that way. Happy Anniversary!

    • Le_Sigh

      YAY! I have pre-ordered it from Amazon and looking forward to seeing many many many more years of bitchery from my favorite gay interweb Uncles!

    • Gwynn Freund

      You have made me smile every day these last 6.5 years (can’t say I was here from the very beginning). Congratulations!

    • SewingSiren

      I love everything and everyone! Congratulations on the good fortune and hard work. Plus fabulous vests!

    • thesevenendless

      Happy Blogiversery TLo! I can’t wait for your book, I am preordering it ASAP. I discovered your blog when I was in Grade 11 of high school, and your blog has been a faithful companion throughout my undergrad and will continue to be so as I pursue my Masters in Film Studies. You have made me laugh, and have given me some much needed comfort during time of uncertainty and doubt over the years – here’s to another seven years of fashion and bitchery!

    • MilaXX

      Happy Blogaversry! Like any good BK ithe book is already in my Amazon cart.

    • Elizabeth Flowers

      So that link to your first post has sent me through the rabbit hole to reading your old posts…

      I am having so much fun!

    • UsedtobeEP

      It’s so funny—I didn’t get the Bewitched font reference outright when I saw it, but heard the music in my head. Congrats!

    • StellaZafella

      “Grubby, fumbling fan bloggers with a book deal and a publicity photo”…
      it’s like saying Meryl Streep or Judi Dench…are pretty good little actresses.
      Happy Blogaversary, guys…here’s to ripping and raving about everything ragged or royal for another 7 years!

    • BKagainwiththesweatpants

      Uncles, you have brightened (and delayed SO MUCH getting any work done) so many Mondays and Wednesdays with your cogent, brilliant Mad Men recaps/Mad Style posts and delighted me on so many Sausage Fridays that I’m getting a little verklempt here…wishing you many more years of your keen-eyed bitchery and tremendous success with your forthcoming book. Which I, of course, have preordered. Are you doing a book tour? I need to bow down in person! xoxoxoxoxoxo

    • Lilyana_F

      Wow, congrats on everything, guys! Thank you for the hard work we’ve all been enjoying for such a long time now. You deserve it all and more :)

    • Alexandra Pimenta

      I still remember the first year, while I was still living in the US, when I sent you guys a Christmas card full of tissue paper snowflake (that I bet it was a pain to clean), because I already loved you more than the family members I do not send cards to. You guys don’t bring just bitchness and cattyness to your minions/bitter kittens… You guys are loved because from the beginning, you bring honesty, being frank and funny and, specially, because you were able to build something of a family with your following.

      It’s personal on the best sense of the word.

      Trust us. You can and should (!) gloat all you want. You can believe that we are just as proud and emotional about this book as you are. And make no mistake, we are all [virtually] dancing like little girls in front of a Harry Styles poster too. :)

      • formerlyAnon

        Beautifully put.

    • http://frederickvegetarian.wordpress.com sixgables

      Aw, you GUYS. Thanks for sticking with it long enough to make it a job. You’ve given me countless laughs. Of course, you’ve also kept me watching shitty shows just because I wanted to read your commentary on it. But I’ll take it.

      I sure do miss Musical Mondays, though…

      • Judy_J

        I miss MM, too. Every once in a while I visit the archives for old time’s sake..

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah. I think I first found them through Musical Mondays & PR was a bonus, though certainty is lost in the mists of my foggy brain.

    • DamH

      Congrats TLo and everyone :) Love you and your book’s gonna be successful !!

    • seelebrennt

      you guys, i just got a little verklempt. i’ve been reading your blog since just about the very beginning and it’s warmed my heart considerably to see how much it’s grown. i cannot wait for this book to come out and for you to go on the obligatory signing tour because i will be there, dressed to the nines and ready to toast to your success. <3

    • RedRaven617

      Happy Birthday TLo! I save your blog to read last each morning because I want to savor and remember every bitchy word. Looking forward to the book.

    • kimmeister

      I’ve only been a BK for about 2 years (didn’t even get into Project Runway until a few seasons in, after three different friends insisted that I would love it) but my online life and view of fashion has only been enriched by it! May your book be as fulfilling as your blog, if not more so!

    • Courtney

      Congratulations on seven years! I am ever so glad that I found this blog when I first started watching Project Runway; it gives me some of the best, intelligent, entertainment of my day.

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      Two great-looking men in clothes that fit properly! I’m happy for your success. Few of my Facebook friends watch Project Runway. I kept posting about it anyway and a friend gave me the link to your site–which turned out to be so much more. Thanks for giving me a place to hang out while I drink my morning coffee. Congratulations.

    • sparkleburnout

      Hearty congratulations to you both! I am a long time reader, and can’t wait to get the book.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      YAY Congratulations to you both! So excited! Will be pre-ordering soon :-D.

    • tripletmom96

      Can’t wait to buy this shit for myself, and gift it to all my friends. Time to spread the gospel among the sad folk who just don’t know any better.

      Huge congrats. :-)

    • Vanja

      February ’14 is such a long wait, but you’re worth it! Congrats!

    • up with pod people

      Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving blog! Thanks for everything you do — and the upbeat, thoughtful and human way you do it.

    • Ayana

      HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!
      I came to the blog 6 years ago and laugh-cried while reading a PR post complete with screencaps, each accompanied by fantastically hysterical commentary. I’ve been a loyal BK drunk on the bitchery ever since.
      Congrats on all your success.

    • Anathema_Device

      Congrats! We love you, too! I was a regular visitor to your Blogspot blog and followed you over to this fancy-scmancy site. You have always been hilarious and insightful. So happy for your success and happy to to have witnessed it and participated in it.

    • Andy Morris

      Congratulations on the book deal! Here’s to 7 more years. I have you guys to thank for getting me into Mad Men, and Rupaul’s Drag Race (and even my hatewatch guilty pleasure of Smash), as well as keeping me updated on what was going on in fashion as it happened. I still remember the countless photos from runway shows and editorials- all sourced from here, that made up a good chunk of the notebook work I used in my art college portfolio. And also you both look fab in your photo, I still picture you guys as your little cartoon picture in my head.

    • http://completeflake.com/ LaVonne Ellis

      Congrats, guys! I’ve been checking in at least once a day for most of those seven years. A day without T-Lo is like a day without the Internet.

    • 1carmelita

      I remember stumbling onto this blog back in the Laura Bennett days (particularly remember a photo you all posted of her sitting with her LV luggage!) I’ve enjoyed every bit of this blog since then and am thrilled to pieces for you both. It so cool that doing something that you clearly enjoy has led you on such a successful path. Congrats and along with all the other BKs am looking forward to the next 7 years.
      P.S. if you ever want to do an occasional Musical Monday again, I’m sure we’d all love it. XO.

    • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

      The Laura Bennett year was my first year with Project Runway and I fell in love. I had to know more – it was the first time I felt that way about a television show. I thank Google every day for turning up Tom and Lorenzo. You guys have literally changed the way I look at the world, the fashion industry and my own closet. I lurk more than I post, but you can bet I check in at least four times a day. Some of my favorite people live here. Your blog is a bright spot always. Hope you are every bit as successful as you want to be! I can hardly wait for the book! Congratulations!

    • clairellis

      Ever since I’ve stumbled across your website I can’t get enough of it. You two have inspired me to dress better and enhanced my judgemental qualities. I can’t wait to read your book! Love you both! Keep being awesome!

    • Danielle L

      Love! Congrats on 7 years, upcoming nuptials, and your fab book! Many more years of success and love to you both!

    • Chaiaiai

      Whither there the most important of the writing crew – the kitties????? Seriously, though, whenever I have a bad day, I read the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes post or the Barbara Stanwyck semi-final Dames post. You have made my working life tolerable:) Congrats on your book! Moreover, congrats on working together as a couple and showing people HOW IT’S DONE – with palpable love for each other.

    • PittypatBR

      Oh, BOYS, as one who has been along from the very first (Has it REALLY been 7 years????), I want to thank you for all the laughs you have given me and the world. Congratulations on your Blogiversary, the book, and all the adventures along the way. Most of all congratulations on the upcoming nuptials, and thank goodness it is now possible for you. I wish you many more years of happy partnership and blogging, and thanks for the memories!
      (Yes, the cover is perfect and gives just the right vibe!)

    • Mod_girl

      I first stumbled across this site a few years ago while googling furiously for ANY web content discussing “Mad Men” fashion, and I’m SO THRILLED that I found it (and much more)! A thousand Kudos to you guys–you deserve every great thing coming your way.

    • ErmengardeGreen

      Congrats!

      Love it!! Congrats!!

    • mommyca

      How wonderful!!! Congratulations! I’d wish I remember how I ended up in your blog 7 years ago… :-) but I’m definitely glad I did. It has been great witnessing your journey from that fateful first post to your very own book. I can’t wait to read it! But couldn’t it have been a Christmas present though? ;-)

      Thanks for all the bitchery and keep it coming! Salud!

      • meowing

        I remember how I ended up at TLo: thanks to whomever it was who mentioned ya’ll on the Project Runway site. I did a quick search, and I’ve been here ever since. Thanks for all the smiles and outright gaffaws. Best wishes for many more years, nay, decades, of success. And, what better muse than Laura?

    • annrr

      Congratulations and thank you for being a fabulous part of my day for the past 7 years. I am proud to have been there since the beginning. xo

    • KayEmWhy

      Love you guys tremendously. You are both superstars who make me laugh, and sometimes shake my head at what you present. This site is a pleasant oasis from the rest of the crappy world. Love the book cover design and your picture is too cute for words. I can’t wait to get my hands on the book.

    • JimiG

      Love the site, the cover, and your pic. Congrats.

      Mazel Tov! I have pre-ordered my copy already. Good for TLO! To another 7 years!

    • Winter_White

      Your success is well deserved. Inspiring, even! “Blog,” “website” — when you were youngsters deciding on careers, you could never have guessed that such things would even exist. But you were the right guys, in the right place, at the right time…and then you worked hard….

      And now it’s your life’s work: using your innate gifts, doing what you love, and being rewarded for that! What we all dream of. Love and congratulations to you, Tom and Lorenzo!

    • Jessica Vann

      I also have my four year chip as a Bitter Kitten. Your blog is the only one I read. I love you both and I wish you continued success!

    • Jessica Freeman

      Congrats 100 times over Uncles. I’ve been around for 2 thrilling years and you are the only blog that is bookmarked on my menu bar. Which is why I incessantly click it all day long for your humor and that of the bitter kittens. Keep it coming!

    • filmcricket

      Aw, congrats T and Lo! Can’t wait for the book.

      You two have changed my days for the better. I’m sure I’ve toned up all kinds of laughter-related musculature reading your blogs. The insights are sharp, and the comments section is delightful. (I’m mostly a lurker, and pre-Disqus I posted under my real name, which is Pamela Murray Winters.)

      Congratulations! Off to preorder the book!

    • Monabel

      Thanks for all the fun and wisdom, and being the occasion for this community. Love you.

    • Lau7ren

      I’ve been lurking on your site since the time before you had advertisers, when you occasionally asked for donations from readers. I love love love you guys! I have pre-ordered your book, and I hope that you’ll do a book tour so that I can get an autographed copy! Thank YOU for the many laughs and insights you’ve shared with us. Congratulations on your well-earned success! And, by the way, you both look very handsome in your publicity photo.

    • Jamie Kearns

      I can’t actually believe that I’ve been following a blog for seven years. I don’t even watch Project Runway anymore. You guys are truly a delight. Congrats on the book, the wedding, and a long and healthy friendship with Laura Bennett that I’m heartily jealous of.

    • CeeRich

      Congrats! I read your website daily and as a Philly resident, will support by ordering the book. Wishing you both all the best!

      Aw. Tearing up with pride & gratitude. Seems so long ago I discovered ProjectRunGay. It soon went hand-in-hand with my viewing of Project Runway. Even though my enjoyment of PR has waned in recent years, my delight in your website has only grown. Thank you, Tom & Lorenzo! And, yes, of course I’ve preordered The Book!

    • NYCGlamourpuss

    • formerlyAnon

      A pretty darn hot publicity photo, didn’t you mean?

      I’ve been here for near-daily entertainment for more than 6 years (though not one of the original BKs, to my sorrow.) There’ve been some difficult personal times – weeks and months – when a TLo post & the accompanying commentary was my only complete, if momentary, escape. Much more often it’s been a friendly, funny, civil and endlessly interesting (and educational) entertainment.

      As always, thanks fellas.

    • PrunellaV

      Congrats, guys. You are one of my few regular must-reads on the internet.

    • poggi

      You deserve all the good things that have and will come to you and more. I am looking forward to the next 7 years.

    • Gwyndall

      Get your hands out of your pockets.

      • formerlyAnon

      Seven years – congrats! How old is that in blog years?

    • HLA

      I remember first reading your site over 4 years ago, during PR season 3. I really miss your posts about Laura. I bookmarked and reread your posts like the time you met Nina Garcia at a book signing. Thanks for all the laughs and congratulations on the book!

    • largishbearishAtlish

      and yet…whenever I hear someone comment on PR and I gushingly say…PR? you will *LOVE* the most amazing blog (its the only blog I read (and its true…I am like the non-gayest gay guy you will *ever* meet)…and the person I am talking to just nods there head and I want to grab them and shake them and say WRITE THIS DOWN BITCHES, its IMPORTANT. Read.This.Blog! (T’lo, years later my fave quote is still “its so gay it farts glitter” (in response you a pic from the Victoria’s Secret show (on TV)….sigh. and I am proud to know where the phrase ‘unborn fawns’ comes from. so there.

    • lesmaha

      CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Love you guys!!

    • demidaemon

      Indeed. Thank you for always bringing a laugh to my weekdays. And, I’ve already pre-ordered your book, of course!

    • Katjoy

      Both my daughter and I have bonded over your descriptions and reviews – love to read everything you write about Project Rungay, er Runway!!!

      Congratulations! As much fun as it has been to read your commentary over the years and see that someone else is thinking what I’m thinking, it has been even more fun to watch the journey of the two of you from a virtual Mom&Pop shop to near total fashion world domination. It’s really inspirational and you deserve it! You’ve worked hard! I can still giggle when I remember your shocked reaction (Lorenzo) when I called you from a PR event you sent me too to tell you that Nina reads you. I believe it was, ‘GASP! Omigod! LOL, a lot of water under the bridge since then

      Your book will, no doubt, be a big hit (again, deserved!) Tlo is a train that cannot be stopped. So celebrate this day; put on your best vagina hats, fill your glasses with bubbly and toast to a happy day with many more to come, darlings!

    • Anniebet

      Your website is one of the highlights of my day. Thank you for many hours of enjoyment and snark. The book is gonna be as awesome as the authors.

    • Pennymac

      I’m verklempt! You guys are awesome! This BK loves you, too. I have had a blast first lurking, and then posting with the other snarky, bitter, wonderful, kittenish, unborn fawns. I’ve pre ordered, but I want your signatures on my soon to be treasured book! Some how, some way……

    • Judih1

      I’ve been here since the beginning – can’t remember how I found you. And have tried (unsuccessfully to mimic your town on y own blog) At one time I even paid for an advertistement on your site. Needless to say I am a loyal BK and can’t wait to read you book. Congrats – you deserve every bit of success and more

    • prismamars

      Can’t wait for your book to come out! I love your website so much and have been following it for the past 6(?) years and your posts never fail to make me laugh.

    • Judih1

      July 22 is a special day – the initial launch of your blog, the birth of the future king of England and MY BIRTHDAY. I am in good company

    • donnaINseattle

      Only seven years? You’ve only enhanced my life for only seven years?

      Thanks guys, you are my favorite
      .

    • Ramon Figueroa

      I pre-ordered it already, together with seasons 2, 3 and 4 of RuPaul’s Darg Race and Book ten of “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” Isn’t that a great combination? Love the cover. It looks like a young Endora. Congratulations, and thank you for putting such a needed spark to my life here is good old Mississippi.

    • SRQkitten

      Love you guys too! I stumbled upon PR in season two but ran across your blog a bit later when I was in the depth of dissertation hades. Whenever I needed a break (frequently) this blog was where I’d head. So it’s really exciting to see how far you’ve come now, soon to be published (bestselling, I’m predicting) authors . Please keep us kittens posted on the book tour!

    • Yolanda

      I cannot believe it has been 7 years! I have loved your blog from the beginning and I cannot wait to read the book. This Bitter Kitten is very happy for you. Love you and Congratulations!

    • Erin Leahy

      Sending all of my love your way, TLo, You guys are amazing. CONGRATS!!!!

    • travelingcat

      Congratulations! I remember reading your blog for the first time with great fondness. The specific title was Tim Gunn is Tired of Your Sh*t. A colleague told me about your blog and I had a hard time explaining to co-workers what was so funny and i’ve been hooked ever since. (Although I now have to save my TLo time for after work.) :) Excited and happy for you.

    • Janet B

      Seven years?!!!

      Congratulations on seven years of fabulousity!

    • Nithya

      I love you T Lo! You deserve every accolade you’ve ever received, and more.

    • kat89

      So that means that in about a week it will be my 7th anniversary reading your blog. We’ve come a long way baby…
      Congratulations!

    • JuliaInBlack

      Congratulations!! You deserve all this and more. <3

    • Katie McKinney

      Yea! Congratulations, y’all!

      My friend who I turned on to your site will always say, “Did you see what TLo said about____?” You give us lots to talk about!

    • Mariah J

      Now that you mention it…I want virgins vs. vixens back, maybe a modern stars edition?

    • unbornfawn

      Congratulations!

    • Jeff Warhurst

      More WERQs!!!

    • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

      Oh oh! The book! Forget Xmas present, I want it now!
      Thank you for brightening many of my days. And providing a lounge to snark in. I try not to snark in real life.

    • Sweetvegan

      Congratulations!!! I’ve been a reader from Day 1, and look forward to many more years of TLo!

    • Jessica Pippin

      Can’t wait to order the book! Love you guys!

    • Jamie Moon

      I remember when you guys first started the blog, and I was so excited because I’d wanted desperately to rip apart the dresses on my then favorite show, and none of my fabulous friends watched it. Then you guys came along and all of my dreams came true. Its been a pleasure watching the two of you gain fans and popularity and respect in the industry, and I can’t wait to devour your book (and to talk smack on unicorn boy. Omg he has to go) Philly Represent!

    • oohsparkley!

      Luv! Congratulations and good luck. Love the cover and your pics.

    • Lauren Lynch Fox

      Here from the beginning. Love you guys! Congrats!!!

    • omg_dora

      Aww, mazel tof, guys. You rock.

    • KiwiFanGirl

      BK since Season One! As soon as I heard there was something CALLED Project Rungay, I was there. In a fit of nostalgia, I’ve been trying to remember how I first heard of you. Doesn’t matter. You guys rock!! So glad to be a part of it. You brighten every day and I go through withdrawal when you are offline.

    • Darren Nesbitt

      I initially came here for the celebrity style posts but was drawn in by your detailed analysis of television shows. I see the book is about style but I would love to see you guys write a book about popular television shows in recent years. Has anyone done that?

      or at least a coffee table book with your best Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Revenge, RPDR zingers.

      Anyway Happy Blog-birthday!

    • guest2visits

      Congratulations and much deserved fame and fortune, TLo! Is there a better place for reading or sharing all things fashion and of course PR, Madmen, Downton and others…. I haven’t found it. Thanks for all your hard work; Happy Blogiversary – and lots more to come. PS; Youz look fantastic!

    • Indigo54

      I LOVE YOU TLO!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Echo4Sierra

      thank you for so many laughs over the years. I’ll admit I miss Musical Mondays-I’d have tears in my eyes from laughing. To the Professors of Fashion Blogging-I salute you!

    • Fanny Wolston

      Seven years! Wow! job well done, thanks for the belly laughs and keeping it surreal.

      Now, lets get the long view, fabulous vest/coats btw, wingtips and loafers or boots and boots?

    • Becca Robson

      I’m *so* buying this! This makes me so happy!

    • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

      You have now infiltrated my dreams! I dreamed last night that you two were opening a coffee and sandwich shop, and I was there, taking up a table.

    • Blimunda

      Congratulations, TLo! I’ve been a fan since Project Rungay and just love you guys. Thrilled for all your success and looking forward to your book!

    • ailujailuj

      Congratulations! I have loved engaging in your blog…

    • http://journal.translarte.de/ Muyserin

      Haven’t read all the comments to this thread, but I’m sure the commentariat (whose reactions I appreciate almost as much as your posts) has put it in sufficiently appreciative words for me to simply say “Thank you. So much. For bringing a smile to my day. Everyday!”

    • Bradio311

      Congrats you guys! Your posts have gotten me through many a workday and also almost made me choke on my lunch many times! Keep up the GREAT work!!

    • Buffy

      Congratulations Tom and Lorenzo! The success is well deserved!

    • MoreShoes

      Congratulations. Thank you for all these years of bitchery. I follow you since the project rungay days. I also have to thank you for my style choices, since the expression “oh honey, this is not your dress” came to my life.
      Enjoy the success ride!

    • librarygrrl64

      Happy Anniversary and thank you!!!! <3

    • H2olovngrl

      “Dear God, it’s me, Alison…” Wasn’t that the one?

    • Liz

      My husband introduced me to this site via the Mad Men posts and I have fallen in LOVE. Congrats!
