I like to imagine Adrianne Curry going to a psychic in 2002, the year before she auditioned for “America’s Next Top Model.” I can almost see this psychic peering into her crystal ball and telling Adrianne, who was 20 years old and addicted to heroin at the time, “You are going to win a major reality show, get a contract with Wilhemina Models, and marry a member of ‘The Brady Bunch.’” Adrianne would have no doubt looked her square in the eyes and said, “Are you sure I’m the one on drugs?”
It’s been eight years since Adrianne won “ANTM” and six since she appeared on “The Surreal Life.” On April 9th and 10th, she will be one of the guests of honor at the Reality Rocks Expo, a two-day conference celebrating the phenomenon of reality TV and culminating in a Reality Rocks Fan Awards. To get ready, Adrianne sat down with The Frisky to talk about our fascination with modeling shows, falling in love with Christopher Knight, and how she convinced him to have a goth wedding.

“I just saw Matt…and I was teasing him. I was saying, ‘Bring a lot of ChapStick, babe.’”

After the jump, Matt’s thoughts on his big kiss scenes with Michael.

Shoes are pretty out of control these days, and we’re not complaining. The higher the heel, the closer to God (or is that hair?). In any case, it seems that more and more designers are taking a cue from the strip clubs of the world, making shoes with impossibly high platforms and gaudy detailing. It’s getting hard to tell whose been working the poll and whose been working the runway. We figured we couldn’t be the only ones noticing this sky-high platform trend, so we thought we’d give you, dear readers, a challenge: Which of the following shoes are stripper heels, and which are high-end designer shoes, worth thousands of dollars? Take our quiz and find out!
No matter how badly a mother wants her daughter to succeed, she has every reason to be freaked out when she sees that her daughter’s contemporaries consider “lunch” to be dipping a cotton ball in OJ and eating it. Model Sessilee Lopez‘s (left) mother, Janice Celeste, has just self-published a guidebook for parents with daughters in the modeling industry called Making a Supermodel. Janice said she published the book on Lulu.com because other parents often messaged the self-titled “momager” on Facebook with questions and concerns about the modeling industry. So, what horrifying tidbits does Sessilee’s mom have to scare share with other parents? Models often sleep 12 to a room, steal each other’s personal possessions, and sometimes have agency-approved “chaperones” who are not much older than the models themselves. This book, plus Crystal Renn’s eating disorder memoir Hungry, could probably dissuade any parent from letting their daughter model — or make them more cautious. Which, let’s be honest, would be a good thing. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
