    Tyra Surprises Isis With Sex Reassignment Surgery

    We’ll be the first to admit that we’re not big fans of Tyra Banks. We watch “America’s Next Top Model” like any other fashion, reality TV-loving girl, but most of the time we’re really annoyed by Tyra’s crazy antics. Today, however, we’re putting a shiny gold star next to Tyra’s name because she arranged for one of our favorite “ANTM” contestants, Isis, to have sex reassignment surgery. I blasted Tyra for using Isis as the “first transgender contestant” on “ANTM,” and then eliminating her for not being comfortable with her body. But at least Tyra is making amends. Of course, the big surprise occurs on “The Tyra Show” airing tomorrow because Tyra is a shrewd businesswoman. [Bossip] Keep reading »

    America’s Next Top Model: Naked Lesbian Bubble Bath Time!

    Oh, last night’s episode of “America’s Next Top Model” was just so edgy and fierce! The latest “fashion capital of the world” that Tyra has shipped the remaining models off to? Amsterdam! Their first photo shoot? Posing in the windows of sex shops in the famous Red Light District. Oooh, Ty-Ty you are so political — I mean, obviously this was timed for the week before San Francisco voters go to the polls to decide whether to pass Proposition K, which would decriminalize prostitution! Actually, that’s probably just a coincidence because the most political Tyra ever gets is having the models look sexy why humping a ballot box, but whatevs. Anyway, the free love ambiance of Amsterdam must have gotten to some of the models, because Elina, Marjorie, and Annaleigh totally took a naked bubble bath and, apparently, maybe, shaved each other.

    Tyra’s Looking For More To Stuff Back In The Closet

    Tyra is a diva who likes to pull stunts like a bra burning. But nothing is as inflammatory as sexuality. So, now the talk show host is demanding some guests who want to stop being gay. Say what?! Maybe she’s planning on showing a leopard can’t change it spots by ruining an exotic fur couture coat? Or perhaps she’ll fix ‘em up with her “America’s Next Top Model” gays Mr. and Mrs. Jay? But if there’s anyone crazier than her, it’s a homosexual trying to straighten up. [Feministing] Keep reading »

    Boo Tyra And America’s Next Top Model

    To say that I’m displeased with Tyra and the other “America’s Next Top Model” judges for eliminating Isis would be an understatement. I’m actually pissed! Keep reading »

    The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For September 20th-21st 2008

    TV this weekend is really kind of wack because there’s hardly anything of note to watch. That is unless you’re a fan of the cult classic Spaceballs. G4 TV will premiere “Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs: The Animated Series” on Saturday (clip, after the jump). And if you need a refresher on the film that inspired this new series, the folks at G4 will air the film before the premiere. You can also watch some really entertaining movies, like the Legally Blonde franchise. Sunday is the better day for TV watching, especially in the evening, when “Gossip Girl” and “ANTM” repeat and the “60th Primetime Emmy Awards” air. [TV Guide]

    America’s Next Top Model Rocked!

    The 11th “cycle” of America’s Next Top Model premiered last night and it was really worth the two hours The CW allotted for it. This season promises to be the most daring ever because Isis is the first transgender contestant. Amelia and I couldn’t wait to start IMing about the new contestants and, of course Tyra, when we got into The Frisky offices this morning. Our chat is after the jump, but also check out the video clip above. First, Gossip Girl, then 90210, and now ANTM…this has been a great week for TV. [Um, and a bad week for reading and outdoor activities. -- Editor] Keep reading »

    We’re extremely excited about the return of either of our favorite shows this fall, but we’ve realized that a season finale refresher is in order. Hey, when our lives and our homies’ lives have real cliffhangers, we can’t be expected to remember months later what happened to our friends on TV, too. Read our updates just in time for the start of the fall TV season on September 2. Keep reading »

    America’s Next Top Model: Hot Tranny Success?

    Each season of America’s Next Top Model has a sob story or a gimmick, a model that is just so different from the competition, that host Tyra Banks has decided to take under her wing and mold into the perfect supermodel. Usually this gives Tyra a platform to “save” someone and then applaud herself for being so courageous — at first, this “different” model was just, say, overweight (only last season did a big girl actually stick around long enough to win), or from the streets. But as the seasons went on, Tyra and crew had to find someone with a more dramatic story — a refugee from Africa, a woman with Asperger’s Disorder, a woman who had been raped and molested, and a woman who had experienced domestic violence. Last season, I thought Tyra peaked with the sadness by casting an African woman who had experienced genital mutilation. Though she was gorgeous and certainly a worthy competitor, it did seem like another cheap ploy for Tyra, again, to toot her own groundbreaking horn.

    Well, this season the gimmick isn’t sad, but it sure is daring. One of the models on the new season, which premieres September 3, is a transgender woman (who was born a man) named Isis, 22, from Maryland. Sure, in the past many of the models who have appeared on Top Model have looked like drag queens (love you Dominique!), but this is a pretty fantastic step for a popular reality show on a major network to take. While transgender characters have appeared on TV shows like Nip/Tuck, The L Word, Ugly Betty, and even the soap opera All My Children, but never on an American reality show. So here’s a pat on the back Tyra, from The Frisky. Give that hand a rest! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
