I found this at the People.com TV blog, and it is a perfect example of why I adore Tim Gunn from Project Runway.

Tim Gunn knows a thing or two about fashion and even though he could probably work some magic with troubled pop star Britney Spears, he says he wouldn’t even go there.

“I would refuse,” he told PEOPLE at the recent YMA Geoffrey Beene Fashion Scholarship Dinner at Marriot Marquis in New York. “There is no amount of moneyand I’ll tell you why: I can’t want you to succeed more than you do. And it’s obvious that she doesn’t want to succeed. I think of her right now as being in exile from the human race and she needs major, major help… There was a time that we were all marginally amused by it and then it just became a repugnant horror show. No, I wouldn’t even be remotely interested in [making her over].”

Gunn, who played master of ceremonies for the organization which hands out “several hundred thousand dollars a year” to young designers to “pay off loans and use it for their tuition and use it to survive,” says he feels “deeply sorry” for Spears, but asks, “Who would trust her with children? I hate to say that — the whole notion of separating children from their mother — but she is a basket case!”
