Around town 

Dish, dirt and drivel

Reality TV talk: If you caught the two-hour premiere of Bravo's "Project Runway" last Wednesday night, you saw Atlanta resident Heidi Standridge's fashion design disaster of a dress. She subsequently got the boot before the competition even started, yet still managed to give the South a bad name by insisting on unnecessarily hugging everyone.

A few more Atlanta residents will make their television debut on Bravo next month in the network's newest reality show, "Party/Party." The series follows 16 families as they attempt to throw a kick-ass event. Each episode will highlight two separate families on the quest for the perfect party. The theme for the Jan. 10 episode is gay weddings and Atlanta couple Jonathan and Jeff want their dream wedding to go off without a hitch. According to Bravo, "The Osbournes have nothing on these guys ... ." "Party/Party" airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m.

Jewelry talk: If bling is already your thing, why not ask Cartier to donate to a cause you care about like the Hurricane Relief Fund? Jermaine Dupri did by designing a limited line of Cartier sunglasses, valued at $1,500. The shades are available in Atlanta only until Dec. 24. Nelly, Usher, Monica, former Xscape member Kandi Burrus, 112's Slim, the Hawks' Kevin Willis, among others, came out in support. Usher and Nelly were even spotted wearing the sunglasses, accented with Jermaine Dupri's signature, alongside the designer himself.

Scene talk: Meanwhile, the big news at BMI's Christmas party at Aiko was a little more classic. Legendary songstress Natalie Cole was spotted in the VIP area with the likes of Slim Thug, Jazze Pha and Dallas Austin.

If you've got any tantalizing tidbits, send them our way. Really, we won't tell a soul.
