Dan first put this on the blog way back in March of 2008. But because Tim Gunn's story relates to a Thanksgiving in his family, I thought it was a worthy piece of humor for this Thanksgiving. Enjoy…
I recently came across this video of Tim Gunn being interviewed at the 92nd Street Y by Budd Mishkin.
If you're a fan of Project Runway than you know Gunn for his sartorial wit and this clip presents an excerpt from what seemed to be a lovely conversation. Gunn speaks sweetly about the awkward relationship with his father who worked for the FBI.
Gunn also tells a great story about his father perhaps enabling J. Edgar Hoover's cross-dressing. It involves Vivian Vance and is quite funny. You've got to watch it!
