VERA FOCUSING ON SHOW: She might not have ended up fox-trotting on “Dancing With the Stars,” but Vera Wang doesn’t seem to be letting go of her television dreams. Last year, rumors swirled the designer was developing a reality show about her fashion house and life. And whispers turned to outright speculation following the resignations of two of Wang’s possibly camera-shy top brass — Elizabeth Musmanno, senior vice president of worldwide marketing and communications, and Constance Darrow, president of creative direction — within a week in October. Now, according to sources, the designer’s docudrama concept — behind-the-scenes chez Wang — is bouncing around various production companies and networks, with Wang even said to be considering bringing the show’s production in-house.

Through a spokeswoman, Wang said, “We have been pitched and pitched television. While I adore TV, it has to be a project that I feel is authentic and relevant.”

A reality series wouldn’t be much of a jump for the camera-friendly designer, who in recent years has made appearances on shows such as “Project Runway,” “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” — Nick Axelrod
