Cat-Thrower Kenley Collins Explains Herself
“Project Runway” veteran Kenley Collins is out of jail and talking to The Daily Beast about why she threw a cat at her former fiancé and what she’s been up to since she got sprung from the big house. Read what she had to say after the jump. According to Kenley, she didn’t really use the cat as a weapon against then-fiancé Zak Penley: “What I really said was, ‘Here! Feed your cat!’ and handed it to him. It was all just really ridiculous.”
During her two days in jail, Kenley wore a black Gap T-shirt and a red hooded sweatshirt and made her cellmates laugh. “I had those women cracking up!” she said. “But the girl next to me was in there for, like, stabbing her man in the head, like 25 times. She was hardcore.” After she got out of jail, Kenley was ready to design. “As soon as I got out I made a kick-ass line and did a photo shoot with 10 of my pieces,” she said. We’re guessing the clothes for sale on her website are the fruits of her post-prison labor (sadly, though, we aren’t seeing the recession-friendly Amelia Earhart-inspired collection she mentioned).
Beyond her clothes, we could be seeing a lot more of Kenley, because she recently began filming a reality show about her life. It hasn’t been picked up by a network yet, but it’s being shot by a cameraman who worked on “Project Runway” and stars Kenley, her PR agent, her assistant, and her lawyer — because who knows what kind of trouble Kenley will get into next.
