It was the battle of the blondes (and battle of the U.K. versus U.S.) on the season finale of “America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion” on Wednesday.
Some highlights: American Laura LaFrate had a panic attack after shooting her ad for CoverGirl, and she was taken to the hospital. However, she recovered and got herself back into the game. Brit Sophie Sumner did a great job recording her dialogue for the CoverGirl commercial – without requiring medical attention.
The models posed for Vogue Italia, and the competition was fierce. They finished off with a runway show for Forever 21 and had just 90 seconds for wardrobe changes. It was a tight race up until the very end.
Sophie, who also made it to the final two on “Britain’s Top Model,” was crowned the winner.

Put a flipper in her and call her a reality star, because “Toddlers & Tiaras’” Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo Child) is getting her own show. Ms. Alana’s spinoff — working title “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” — will be coming to TLC late this summer and will follow Alana in her pageant pursuits and her day-to-day life in rural Georgia doing normal things like picking up roadkill for the family cookout. Best part: The show will also feature family members like belching mom, June Shannon, chalk-mining dad, Sugar Bear, and sisters Lauryn “Pumpkin,” Jessica “Chubbs,” and Anna “Chickadee.” OMG yessssss, please! Congrats to our little tummy-squeezing, dollar-hollering, Go-Go juice guzzling spirit animal muse ! There are various celebrations going on here in the Frisky office. I am playing with my stomach fat as we speak. But dare I say it? What about Makenzie? [Us Weekly]
Meet Mitchell and Jack. They used to date, but they’re no longer together, and they’re dealing with the breakup in strikingly different ways. Jack’s a little more, shall we say, self-destructive, while Mitchell’s a bit more self-deprecating. Follow them through the six episodes of “The Outs” (so far the first two are up online) as they try and make their way post-split. It’s hard not to see parallels with that other show about hip twentysomethings living in Brooklyn, “Girls,” but somehow these guys have a bit more humanity and heart.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders was first developed in the 1950s by the American Psychiatric Association as a way to classify and define mental problems. It covers a whole host of problems, including clinical disorders, personality disorders, and intellectual disabilities. And it’s been revised several times since its original publication, to include new and emerging psychological problems.
But even so, we think the DSM isn’t quite complete. In fact, we’ve been experiencing an array of disorders of late that we think should definitely come under review by the APA for potential inclusion. That’s because we believe these disorders are now widespread and very, very debilitating. After the jump, we give you a list of some of the new disorders we believe we — and you — might be suffering from. Keep reading »
Producers of HBO’s hit “Game of Thrones“ were left in a bind when they had to plan the series’ memorable Battle of Blackwater, due to budget constraints. In fact, the first plan was to have the entire battle off-screen.
Much like stage plays, producers and writers were going to have battle updates coming from a messenger. The maidens of the castle gathered in Maegor’s Holdfast to wait out the battle with the castle’s executioner – who was there to give the women a clean death instead of leaving them to the occupying forces.
