Nothing wrong with using Brother Fancy or CR's Fancy; both are very good tetraploid breeders but people keep using them on diploids and that is trouble.
Red Hot Fancy (not to be confused with Canyon Red Hot Fancy) is aneuploid and gives rise to lots of weird flowers. It should be discarded into the first trash can available.

This is my Phal Red Hot Fancy made by Ken Avant from 1997. I prefer that this flower is not peloric.
