TV DIVAGAL at TV Summer Press Tour: Day 2 – Glee Project’s Damian McGinty and Couple Alert for Most Eligible: DallasBy DIVAGALS | August 3, 2011 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal is a big fan of The Glee Project on Oxygen. So I was front and center for the show’s press panel as contestant Hannah McIalwain and I share something in common: we’ve both got a work crush on Damian McGinty (seriously, who can resist the cutie 18-year-old Irish crooner?)! I had to know, was he aware of Hannah’s admiration while shooting the show?
“I had no idea,” he tells me. “Hannah is the sweetest girl — I love her, I really do. She’s honestly one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, she’s so genuine. It’s very flattering.”
Just flatteringΓÇª that’s kind of a bummer. But that may have helped Hannah in this week’s upcoming challenge, a musical montage where the five remaining contestants tackle unrequited love to Paramore‘s “The Only Exception.” We got a sneak peek, and I think it’s my favorite montage yet!
Show spoiler alert? During the luncheon for Most Eligible: Dallas, Bravo’s newest reality franchise about the young, single and fabulous in the Lone Star State, I meet Matt Nordgren and Courtney Kerr, who may be something more than just BFFs. Asked why they’re not together, Matt replies, “Who’s to say we aren’t.” So we press onΓÇª “We’re here in L.A. together,” Courtney teases when we inquire if they are indeed a couple. Matt tries to give a more diplomatic answer. “Put it this way, Courtney and I grew a lot throughout the show. Towards the end, by the time this thing was wrapped, we were in a different place than when we started.” Judging by Matt and Courtney’s flirty body language during our chat, putting a ring on it for the season finale may not be out of the question!
Tip of the Day: If you want to be able to run in heels just like Hair Battle Spectacular judge Derek J, here’s what you got to do. “Clean your house in them,” he declares. Yep, we’re pretty sure our man won’t mind that one bit.
Tomorrow, TV DivaGal takes on Summer Press Tour Day 3! And tune in Friday for more of TV DivaGal’s Glee Project exclusives! See more pics from the tour here.
