Both Clinton Kelly and the Subject Storm Off the Set of 'What Not to Wear' (VIDEO)

'What Not to Wear'One would think that when you choose to participate in a reality show, you might have some idea what you're in for. And yet, when the latest "target" of Clinton Kelly and Stacy London's 'What Not to Wear' (Tue. 9PM on TLC) was faced with criticism of her current wardrobe choices, she didn't handle it very well at all.

It can't be easy to have one of your dresses equated to what a stripper might wear, even if Kelly did try to preface with the caveat that "this isn't about you."

But the girl handled her distress by lashing out. "I wasn't even listening," she said. "Sorry, I tuned you out." It was as if she'd not expected that the pair might say something derogatory about her clothes. You know, like they do every single episode.

Kelly had to step out of the room to allow cooler heads to prevail, and even then the girl seemed confused. "Does this normally happen?" she asked London, who shook her head.

When Clinton tried to explain why he'd gotten upset, that set the subject off herself. "We are giving you as much good advice as we possibly can," he explained calmly. "And you really just don't want to hear it." He felt as if they were wasting their breath.

At that, the girl was off, calling him and the show stupid and mean and other colorful language that allowed TLC's subtitler to use plenty of asterisks. She did have the option of opting out of this whole transformation earlier in the process. Apparently, she had no idea it would be so emotionally difficult for her. Maybe she liked that her dress "can just slide on and off."

I've never actually watched the show except for the teasers which is enough for me. First, blame yourselves for demanding reality shows because you can't mind your own businesses. You wouldn't watch these shows if they didn't have contestants or hosts or both at the same time turn on each other. You would never watch a show where people didn't lie, cheat and backstab their way to the top at the expense of others. You'd all be bored stiff over a show where people are treated with dignity and respect and worse get paid for showing everyone how nasty they can be. You prefer reality shows who vie for pay and win for being the most obnoxious.

Secondly and most importantly, ever notice you never see any show where men are demanded to dress certain ways? Women who go on certain reality shows are spineless jellyfish They need to be told what to wear, what to eat, knock themselves out to be thin because others set criteria. It's the spineless jellyfish of a woman who can't survive without being treated like a child and women who watch and think it just great just don't see it.

I had a guy criticize me once because at the time I liked wearing my biker jacket. Lots of women wear 'em. He said "people will think you're a guy" when I don't look anything like one. "People will think I'm gay if I'm with you in your biker jacket". I said to him the problem doesn't lie with me, he's the one with a problem with his foolish insecurity.

Another person asked me why I "dressed down". I dress in what makes me feel comfortable and it's T-shirts, and sweat pants and good pants. He said what I wear "reflected on him". I told him he's got a problem with insecurity and that I'm separate from him. He didn't like what I wore, tough.

I once tried an experiment to show him that people could care less what I wear. I wore my lucky hat, a long sleeved shirt, my best vest, jeans, nice leather shoes that looked like boots, and one of my uncle's bow ties. I walked into a small convenience store and not one person noticed me. I went outside and a guy was walking up and I asked him if my bow tie was straight. I'd never worn one. He said it looked perfect and that I looked pretty "cool". So I reported back and the guy was outraged. "Oh he told you what you wanted to hear." I've no idea how to practice mind control over a perfect stranger. I told this guy that he was mad because no one else had his low opinion of my way of dress. In fact, I was totally ignored until I asked the guy about my bow tie. If I go into a store and am not paid attention to, it's certainly not because of what I'm wearing. It comes down to being rude, pure and simple, and I'll flag someone down.

These reality dressers are no more than controllers to women who need approval. I dress how I want and if people don't like it, I say tough. I don't need anyone's approval. And if you think the person you're with brings you down by how they dress, well, the only one with the problem is the insecure person who thinks they're so important that people care what they wear or what the person whom their with wears.

Get a life women! Wear what you darn well want to instead of being an insecure jellyfish who depends on the approval of others because you need to be controlled.

I love this show, she was told why she was coming to the show, if you can't stand the truth then stay home. Clinton is gay and I love him, Stacy has lost it a few times too. You could tell she was angry, but she struck it out. I will continue to watch the show. New time slot Tuesday nite on TLC.

Condescending egomaniacs, I only saw a few minutes of their show. Then again, I would listen to their s*** in order to get a new wardrobe!

MAYBE...she shouldn't dress like a hooker..and she wouldn't be there. Remember it was her friends and familt that nominated her. They must think she dresses like crap to do that. Clinton got worked up but I would have been pissed too if I was putting in my time and hard work TO ONLY BE IGNORED. Love the show love Stacy and Clinton... they can dress me any day...subject shouldn't be so sensitive either. She knew what she was getting into when she agreed to be on the show.

I have watched this show sometimes and there's some people look just fine to me like this very nice woman who work for Salem Witch Trials museum and she looked great just as she was. The hosts should get over with themselves. The hosts really likes each others a lot.

Wait just one minute. He asks her if she's ever gone to a strip club because "he" knows they wear clothes that you can slip off easily?! I guess he's frequented strip clubs for MEN! lol What a loser.

She was right to be upset. How dare he insult her like that. It's one thing to insult her clothes, another to comment on her personal habits.

If she didn't want to listen to his foul mouth, good for her. I would have used a few choice words and they wouldn't have been as nice as the other woman.

What a loser.

NOT TUNNING IN!

Clinton & Stacy are both ignorant fools. I watched their show a few times YEARS AGO and was appalled of how they LOVEEEEEEE to put down the person they are attempting to help dress well. I despise both of these characters who think they know best. Fashion is what you feel looks good on you and most importantly, what you may afford. It's not always about TOP NOTCH LATEST HOLLYWOOD FASHION. Clinton & Stacy need to work on their people skills, they truly suc_ at it.
