Every competition reality show always has one looney bird who keeps you watching just to see what they do next. On cycle 19 of “America’s Next Top Model,” that looney bird is a Victoria. Victoria has the same mile-long legs as the other competitors, plus gorgeous eyes and a head of beautiful, long brown hair. But as soon as she opens her mouth, she’s a little … odd.
Victoria is an online student at the uber-Christian college Liberty University, whose appearance on the show is literally her first-ever socialization with girls her own age. She has a really, really, really close relationship with her mother — so close, in fact, that she doesn’t ever want a boyfriend because no man will ever fulfill her needs as much as her mom does. (That’s a direct quote.) Not surprisingly, Victoria has been home-schooled by Mommie Dearest since age nine … which means that dropping Victoria into the “Top Model” sorority house is like throwing raw meat to a pack of wolves.
But with her American flag hair bows and endearing social awkwardness, Victoria is the girl I’m most rooting for on “Top Model” this season. She’s super-loopy, yes, but she’s gorgeous, dedicated, hard-working, and also totally genuine and sweet. My favorite loopy Victoria moments, after the jump! Keep reading »
A mom and dad in Sedro-Wooley, Washington, took “To Catch A Predator”-esque tactics into their own hands and caught their teenage daughter’s sex offender boyfriend sending dick pics to a supposed 15-year-old girl over Facebook.
William Elms (also known as Liam) is a 19-year-old low-level/”level one” sex offender for committing third-degree child molestation. He was also dating a 17-year-old girl since April, against her parents’ wishes. So this July, with the help of one of their daughter’s friends who was a “friend” with Elms on Facebook, Jesper and Julie Myrfors created a fake Facebook profile for an imaginary 15-year-old girl and went after Elms themselves.

Nicki Minaj is supposedly a Republican voting for Mitt Romney (just for financial reasons, though). In a new Lil Wayne mixtape, Nicki raps “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / you lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.” Didn’t see that one coming. However, considering Nicki’s next lyrics are about being in Miami “chilling with a zombie,” maybe she’s taking some creative liberties? But who the hell knows. Remember when Kelly Clarkson and Michelle Branch turned out to be Ron Paul fans? [NYMag.com]
“So we are shooting on this balcony in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and I was so fucking scared that Choupette would step back and fall off and that Karl would hate me forever because I killed his cat. The cat was like, ‘maaaiooowarrgh’ and I was like, ‘gasp.’ I did everything with that cat. We even shot on the bed. The whole thing was about Choupette. And she has two nannies … It was a weird job, when I think about it.”
– I don’t exactly blame model Laetitia Casta for being terrified of “working with” Choupette for a 10-page editorial for V magazine. I mean, what if Choupette went back home with Karl and said “Meow. I don’t like that woman, one of her earlobes is bigger than the other one.” You know Karl Lagerfeld would never work with her again. [Fashionista]
