Chicago designer Barbara Bates doesn’t regret playing the breast cancer card on “Fashion Star.”

On Tuesday’s episode, Bates, 55, coyly reminded the panel of buyers that she was a cancer survivor in an attempt to win their sympathy. Mentors Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie looked taken aback, but Bates chalked that up to editing.

“They were laughing harder than me,” Bates said, adding that she didn’t mind getting the boot because she needed to get back to her South Loop business.

After her breast cancer statement, Bates also mentioned that she was born with club feet.

“It’s true,” she said. “But it didn’t help.”
