It's the end of a reality TV era — or it soon will be.
After 10 years and nearly 350 makeovers, the end is nigh for TLC's fashionable staple, "What Not to Wear." While fans of the show are sure to be sad to say goodbye to the weekly wardrobe switcheroos, style guru Clinton Kelly feels the timing is right.
"I keep in touch with about 100 of them, believe it or not, whether that's Twitter or Facebook or a text message here and there," he said.
"But yeah, I had some great times with some of them.
Together, the couple have been slowly recovering, going from bed rest to short walks around the block.
The stunning brunette, who hosted the popular TLC show until 2013, posted photos of her recovery using a walker to take short trips around the block to get out of the house.
She and I had a drink together and we hashed it out.
We totally just sat down and said, 'This is where I was coming from,' 'This is where was coming from,' and we made nice and now we're friends." So maybe there's hope for Megumi?You know, we really affected people's lives positively.So it was a good experience." And while it's not his habit to keep in touch with the ones he "didn't like," Kelly does make exceptions. "I didn't like her when she was in the studio, and I felt bad about that."The casting department really did a good job in the last season of finding characters that did not seem like the same old characters we've sort of worked with before," he told us. It's like, 'How many frumpy moms can you make over in one season?'" The character coming up on the next episode — the penultimate episode of the series — is anything but frumpy."I'm not sure I could do that show for another year if I had to," Kelly told TODAY. You know, don't get me wrong, everybody's story is a personal one and every week is different. '" But there's been nothing monotonous about the show's final run, which has been packed with "What Not to Wear" firsts, including a behind-the-scenes episode that aired in August.
