Cathy Hobbs from "Design Star 2011" is one of the contestants in Season 6 of the interior design reality competition series on HGTV. A news reporter turned interior designer, she is 42 years old and from Brooklyn, New York. Her signature style includes Asian simplicity paired with touches of Hollywood glamour.

Originally from Maryland, Cathy Hobbs ("Design Star 6") went to school in California for business and eventually became a broadcast news reporter in New York City. Despite winning five Emmy Awards for outstanding news reporting, Cathy's passion for design propelled her into a second career. She attended morning classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she earned a bachelor's degree in interior design, and then returned to the station to report the evening news. Married with an 8-month-old daughter, Cathy now owns a flourishing interior design company and specializes in residential and commercial properties.

You have some good ideas but your personality is very non-cooperative with other designers - you are NOT the only one with good design ideas and you seem reluctant to do the "dirty work" in order to get the results desired. Isn't this show about working well (and equaly) with others? I think you're lacking in this aspect.

You have some good ideas but you think you know everything in design. There is always room for improvement. NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE.

Let me be perfectly clear here. I LOVE HGTV!!!! I will NEVER watch a show starring this miserable, power-hungry, popous-ass woman. Cancel her show quickly so we can once again enjoy Design Star!!!

I'm glad Cathy is gone. I would not watch her show. Who do she think she is? Design God?! I dont even think she has good ideas. Working 101 tells you to be a TEAM PLAYER....she is not

You need to have your doctor check you for a goiter. The "pop" eyes are a major symptom. I'm serious...
