Today on Live With Regis And Kelly, Tim Gunn was asked to name the worst diva behavior he's ever witnessed. Unsurprisingly, he pointed to Anna Wintour, who isn't happy about Tim revealing her penchant for being carried by bodyguards.


In June, Tim told the press about what he saw after a Peter Som show:

I was with a colleague from Parsons, and we had been discussing the will-she-or-won't-she-take-the-elevator question, so we ran over to the elevator bay to see if Anna would deign to get on. She wasn't there. Then we looked over the stairway railing. And what did we see but Anna being carried down the stairs. The bodyguards had made a fireman's lock and were racing her from landing to landing. She was sitting on their crossed arms.

Tim tells Regis and Kelly that after reading this comment, Anna went "ballistic," and demanded an apology. After being contacted by Anna's rep, Tim said he didn't mean to imply she doesn't know how to "work a Manolo." However, he refused to retract the statement, saying, "Accept responsibility for your own behavior. If you're going to be carried down five flights of stairs, own up to it."

That's nothing. Lars Ulrich has a roadie whose job it is to put his socks on him before a concert, then take them off him after the concert and put clean socks on him.

Imagine that being your full time job.
