Tim Gunn isn't a fan of Marie Kondo: 'I can only take so much of her'

 Marie Kondo's methods for home organization have resonated with countless people across the globe, but for Tim Gunn, there's just no way to make it work.

The professional style maven revealed on "The One Way Ticket Show" podcast that he's been asked two times to interview Kondo for panel discussions, but he turned down both opportunities. (H/t to Page Six, who first picked up Gunn's comments.)

"I can only take so much of her," Gunn said, calling Kondo's hit Netflix show "very slow."

Gunn, who starred on "Project Runway" for 16 seasons before exiting last year, said he's "not a believer" in Kondo's process. Kondo's de-cluttering strategy, called Konmari, instructs people to toss out any of their possessions that don't "spark joy," meaning that each item in a home should serve a clear and positive purpose.

"I don't subscribe to her methods," Gunn said. "I have a huge number of books, as I’m sure you do. Do they all spark joy? Roget’s Thesaurus does not spark joy. Am I going to get rid of it? No!”

While Kondo's best-selling book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up," may not live on Gunn's shelves, fellow Konmari skeptics may enjoy his own book, "Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making It Work."

Although "Project Runway" has pushed forward without Gunn, he's not going anywhere: He and former co-star Heidi Klum are reportedly working on a new fashion series for Amazon.
