Los Angeles Confidential Magazine

Don't mess with a pregnant woman and her food!

Project Runway goddess/host Heidi Klum tells Los Angeles Confidential magazine that the best part of moving from Bravo to Lifetime is the grub.

"It's been great," Heidi says in her cover story, out Sept. 4. "They really wanted Project Runway to come on, and the lawsuit put a downer on things for a second, but they're excited to have us. They're very accommodating, particularly where food is concerned [laughs]. Food is so important when you're on a set. People are working from seven in the morning to nine or 10 at night, so it makes a huge difference if there's random mush or something really great. Maybe because I was pregnant, they always had doughnuts."

The supermodel-mom-host also talked about a "naughty" book project, cohosting last year's Emmys with other reality stars and more...

Highlights from the September Los Angeles Confidential magazine:

On Moving Project Runway to Los Angeles: "People will ask us, 'Why L.A.? L.A. isn't a fashion capital.' But if you look at the history of American fashion, it started in Hollywood with designers making gowns for all the starlets. Sometimes I joke with Tim [Gunn] that we should do Project Runway on an island. 'Here's 15 minutes, now go into the bushes and find whatever you can and make an outfit.' I picture Michael [Kors] and me, super tan in our director's chairs and me in a bikini saying, 'Welcome to the runway!' "

On Her New Coffee-Table Book, Rankin's Heidilicious, Out in October: "It's very naughty. I've been shooting with this photographer, Rankin, for seven years, and working with him is fun because he always makes me look different. And he always gets me to take my clothes off for some reason. We'll do some job, and then he'll say, 'Why don't we shoot some more things,' and I'll wind up without anything on."

On Last Year's Ill-Fated Cohosting Gig at the Emmys: "Man, we got so beaten over the head for that! It's not like the four boys and I wrote it. You get hired to do it, they give you a script and you learn your lines. If I could have, I would have done the whole thing in German, with subtitles—everyone in dirndls and on swings and milking cows. Each nominee would have had to ride in on a big cow and milk it."
