Tim Gunn weighs in on the Catholic Church's changed tone toward homosexuality, Anthony Weiner's mayoral prospects, and his "Project Runway" veto power. (5:51)

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

>> John: WELCOME BACK.

MY GUEST TONIGHT SERVES AS

COHOST AND MENTOR ON LIFETIME'S

PROJECT RUNWAY.

>> YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE UP

THERE ALONE.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE UP THERE

TOGETHER.

YOU'RE A TEAM.

THE JUDGES AREN'T GOING TO

SINGLE YOU OUT AND SAY, "SANDRA,

YOU DID X, Y AND Z."

SUE AND I DID THIS TOGETHER.

YOU'RE BOTH RESPONSIBLE.

GO BACK TO WORK.

HI, KATE.

HI, HELEN.

>> RIGHT NOW WE'RE CREATING A

REALLY STRUCTURED BOOEDICE WHICH

WILL FUNCTION LIKE THIS.

THERE WILL BE A HIGH SCULPTED

SOLDIER.

>> THIS CAPTURES YOUR EYE.

YOU DO YOU REALLY NEED THE EYE

TO GO UP HERE TOO.

>> John: HE'S THE BEST.

PLEASE WE WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW

TIM GUNN.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

MR. GUNN.

>> I'M THRILLED TO BE HERE WITH

YOU.

>> John: I AM THRILLED TO BE

HERE WITH YOU.

I LOVE PROJECT RUNWAY.

>> I LOVE YOUR WORK ON THE DAILY

SHOW.

SO WE'RE EVEN.

>> John: THERE'S NO OTHER WORK.

SO I'M DONE ON THAT.

I WATCH NEWS ALL THE TIME, SPORT

ALL THE TIME AND PROJECT RUNWAY.

IN THE CONVENIENT DIAGRAM OF

THOSE THREE THINGS I THINK IT'S

JUST ME IN THE MIDDLE.

>> I THINK YOU MAY BE CORRECT.

John: AT FIRST AS A GAY MAN,

CONGRATULATIONS ON THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH'S CHANGE OF TONE.

YOU MUST BE ALMOST PLEASED BY

THAT NEWS.

>> I HAVE TO TELL YOU AT LEAST

WATCHING YOUR PIECE ON THIS

EXPLAIND THE ENTIRE THING TO ME

BECAUSE I WAS COMPLETELY

MYSTIFIED BY IT.

>> John: THE TONE HAS CHANGED.

SOME HATEFUL MESSAGE BUT MUCH

FRIENDLIER TONE OF VOICE.

>> THAT'S TO SEDUCE YOU IN A

LITTLE CLOSER AND THEN GIVE YOU

A BIG BITCH SLAP.

>> John: OVER THE YEARS THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS BEEN GOOD

WITH THE BITCH SLAP.

>> IT'S THE BEST.

John: JUST ASK THE SPANISH.

I WAS READING THAT YOU RECENTLY

ENDORSED CHRISTINE QUINN HERE

FOR MAYOR IN NEW YORK.

>> YES.

John: ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY SURE

YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE ANTHONY

WEINER A FIFTH CHANCE?

ARE YOU SURE, TIM?

>> I THINK ANTHONY WEINER'S NAME

IS A METAPHOR FOR HOW HE IS AND

WILL BEHAVE AS A MAYOR IF WE'RE

FOOLISH ENOUGH TO ELECT HIM.

IT'S A LITTLE FRIGHTENING.

>> John: IT WILL BE AMAZING BUT

I DON'T THINK NEW YORKERS ARE

GOING TO DO THAT.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IF MY HEART OF

HEARTS.

>> I'M GOING TO BE GOING AROUND

ON SEPTEMBER 10 WHICH IS THE DAY

OF THE PRIMARY MAKING CERTAIN

THAT THEY'RE WELL INFORMED ABOUT

THEIR DECISION-MAKING.

>> John: PROJECT RUNWAY IS BACK

FOR YOUR 134th SEASON.

>> I HOPE IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE

THAT.

>> John: THIS TIME YOU HAVE THE

ABILITY TO OVERRULE A JUDGE'S

DECISION.

>> I DO.

John: YOU ARE GOD.

THANK YOU.

I HAVE TO TELL YOU THOUGH WHAT

HAPPENED WAS THAT IN SEASON 11,

I INTERVENED WITH THE JUDGING

PROCESS NEAR THE VERY END OF THE

SEASON BECAUSE AN INCREDIBLE

DESIGNER WAS BEING ELIMINATED.

I WENT STORMING DOWN TO THE

JUDGE'S CIRCLE.

I SAID, "YOU CANNOT DO THIS.

THIS IS A GIFTED INDIVIDUAL AND

SHE MUST REMAIN HERE."

I ENDED UP SAVING HER.

WE HAD NO ONE ELIMINATED THAT

CHALLENGE.

SHE WON THE ENTIRE SEASON.

>> John: EXACTLY.

BECAUSE YOU WERE RIGHT.

>> I HOPE SO.

THANK YOU.

>> John: YOU WERE OBJECTIVELY

RIGHT.

( APPLAUSE )

ONE OF THE THINGS... I SHOUTED

AT MY OWN TV.

WHENEVER YOU DO CONSULTATION

WITH ONE OF THEM AND THEY SAY

I'M NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO TIM.

I PHYSICALLY SHUT OUTLOUD, HOW

CAN YOU IGNORE TIM?

LISTEN TO HIM.

>> JOHN, I'M NOT ALWAYS RIGHT.

I'M NOT.

I GIVE THE DESIGNERS THE BENEFIT

OF MY EXPERIENCE AND MY

KNOWLEDGE AND I SAY TO THEM YOU

HAVE TO OWN RESPONSIBILITY FOR

YOUR OWN DECISION-MAKING BECAUSE

YOU'RE THE ONE ON THE RUNWAY IN

FRONT OF THE JUDGES.

I'M NOT.

THE LAST THING I WANT YOU TO SAY

IS, GOD DAM IT I LISTENED TO TIM

GUNN.

I WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT THEY

LOOK AT THEIR WORK CRITICALLY

AND OBJECTIVELY WITH ME AND HAVE

ENOUGH DISTANCE TO MAKE SOME

VIABLE, HOPEFULLY, EXCELLENT

DECISIONS ON THEIR OWN BEHALF

>> John: THAT'S WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT THE SHOW BECAUSE SO MUCH

TV IS CYNICAL NOW.

YOU REALLY ADVOCATE FOR THOSE

DESIGNERS.

THERE'S AN ENTHUSIASM TO THE

SHOW, A LEVEL OF EXPERTISE.

YOU MUST FIND THESE PEOPLE

SOMEWHERE.

YOU MUST GET HUMAN CAR CRASHES

TURNING UP.

>> OH, WE DO.

John: SAYING LOOK AT THE

DRESS I'VE MADE.

YOU DON'T SHOW THAT BECAUSE IT'S

A CELEBRATION OF GENUINE TALENT.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I'M VERY, VERY PROUD OF THE SHOW

AND ALSO FOR WHAT IT'S DONE FOR

AMERICAN FASHION

>> John: AND YOU GOT NOMINATED

FOR AN EMMY.

>> YES, THANK YOU.

John: YOU'RE NOW OFFICIALLY

COHOST.

>> I AM INDEED.

I HAVE TO SAY HOW GENEROUS IS IT

OF HER TO SHARE THAT SPOTLIGHT

WITH ME.

>> John: BE CAREFUL OF THAT

BECAUSE SHE'S GERMAN.

THEY SAY THEY'RE GOING TO SHARE.

THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO SHARE

CZECHOSLOVAKIA.

IT DIDN'T WORK OUT THAT WAY.

>> THE TONE HAS CHANGED.

John: I HAVE ONE PITCH FOR

PROJECT RUNWAY.

HOW ABOUT A CHALLENGE ON AN

ACTUAL RUNWAY WITH PLANES TAKING

OFF AND LANDING AS THEY COMMENT.

YOU COULD SEE THE MATERIAL MOVE.

THAT'S OFTEN IMPORTANT.

THAT'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED.

YOU WANT TO SEE THE FABRIC MOVE.

>> YOU KNOW, WE ALMOST DID THAT

WITH OUR FIRST CHALLENGE OF THE

SEASON.

WE WENT TO AN AIRPORT AND HAD

PARACHUTERS.

WE WERE CLOSE.

>> John: I LOVE THE SHOW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

John: YOU'RE FANTASTIC IN IT.

TIM GUNN, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

THE MAGNIFICENT TIM GUNN.
