Tyra Cops To Playing A Role On “ANTM”

“When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on ‘Top Model.’ And it’s a character ... So, when I’m sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I’m like, ‘Your picture’s not fierce…’ talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character ... I…

“ANTM” Winner Whitney Launches Plus-Size Dating Site

In 2008, Whitney Thompson made waves when she became the first-ever plus-size winner of "America's Next Top Model." These days, she's parlayed her win into a successful modeling career -- and a turn as an entrepreneur. This past month, Thompson launched TheBoldandTheBeautiful.com, a dating site geared specifically toward plus-size women and the me…

“Top Model” ["Pot Ledom"] All-Stars Go Viral

Last night's episode of "Top Model" (or should I say "Pot Ledom"?) was "absolutely epic" to quote Amelia. The all-stars had to write, record, and make music videos to "go viral." Best catch: they had to work the hook "Pot Ledom" (Top Model spelled backwards) into their songs. Another weird-as-s**t Tyra brainchild. Of…

Just What You Always Wanted: A “Top Model” Fragrance

If you thought the all-star season of "America's Next Top Model" was indication that the model competition show had jumped the shark, think again. Now Tyra Banks is releasing an ANTM fragrance called Dreams Come True ... Uh, that's not exactly what happens to the winning model on ANTM, but we'll let Tyra have…

Vogue Rips Off “America’s Next Top Model,” Sort Of

Remember when Tyra made the girls of cycle six of "America's Next Top Model" pretend they were some broken down dolls? It looks like art is now imitating reality TV. In this spread for Vogue Italia -- you know, the magazine that ANTM's winner gets a spread in? -- photographer Tim Walker shoots models Audrey Marnay…

17 Celebs Doing The “Booty Tooch”

Tyra Banks (with the help of Kristin Cavallari's butt) may have coined the term "booty tooch" to denote an over-exaggerated arch of the lower back to accentuate the posterior,  but it's hardly a new move. Watch out "America's Next Top Model" hopefuls, because celebs have been tooching their booties, like, forever, they just…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Top Model”‘s Creepy Michael Jackson-Inspired Photoshoot

I'll be honest, last night's episode of "America's Next Top Model" was entirely WTF so this recap is going to be short, because, you guys, Tyra made the models channel different eras of Michael Jackson. Some of the models had to wear blackface! (Early MJ, obvs.) And some had to wear heavy makeup that mimicked hi…

“America’s Next Top Model” Ann Markley Is Back

Ann Markley is hardly an "America's Next Top Model" all-star. Even though she was completely stunning and the judges kept commenting on her incredible potential, she kind of sucked at the competition. Instead of rising to the top of the pack, she became a cranky nag, always picking at eventual winner Eva Pigford.

Tyra Tries To Make The “Booty Tooch” Her New Thing

Last night's epsiode of "America's Next Top Model" was a rollicking good time. It was fun to watch Kristin Cavallari give the girls tips on striking while the iron is hot on their reality TV fame. And I am so excited that the gals finally did an interesting photo shoot—posing ato…

Andre Leon Talley Out, Kelly Cutrone In In “ANTM”?

Who can understand the whims and desires of International Top Supermodel and Media Mogul Tyra Banks? For the past several cycles she's had the inimitable Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley as a panel judge for the show, but now rumor has it that he'll be replaced by PR guru/life coach/"The City" HBIC…

7 Guys Who Just Don’t Look Right With Hair

How can you tell George Costanza is entering a room? From the little bit of light shining off his bald spot. Sure, it might not be the most desirable characteristic, but it made the otherwise-horrible George slightly endearing. So we were kind of shocked when, last week, actor Jason Alexander showed up to an event…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Tyra Shaves Nigel’s Head On “ANTM”

Last night, the second "America's Next Top Model" all-star got kicked to the curb all over again. And overall, I am happy to report that this season feels like it's picking up steam, with stakes high enough for me to keep on watching. After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF moment…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The “America’s Next Top Model” All-Stars Twinkle

Why, oh why, is "America's Next Top Model" so compelling? Is it because the modeling industry is really so glorious that we're thrilled by the idea of a normal girl getting a shot at it? Or is it that we just like to see pretty girls pushed to their breaking point via having their…

12 Tips For Surviving The “Top Model” House (From A Former Contestant)

The new season of "America’s Next Top Model" premieres tonight, and while the returning “All-Stars” may consider themselves experts by now, it's been a while since most of them lived in the infamous “Top Model” house.  Coming fresh off last season, I feel it's my duty to remind them of a few important do'…

Tyra Banks Is Haunted By The Ghosts Of “Top Model” Contestants Past

What is Tyra Banks' worst nightmare? Being haunted by the girls who didn't quite win "America's Next Top Model" and want another chance. In this awesome promo for "ANTM: All-Stars," Tyra shows off her acting skills (read: embarrasses herself) by channeling Camille, Laura, Isis, and blood-obsessed Allison. Honestly, I think the decision to…

Sursmize! “America’s Next Top Model All-Stars” Picks Its Cast

It's hard to believe that "America's Next Top Model" has been around for 16 cycles. If there were 13 girls a season (and I'm pretty sure that many seasons had 14) that makes 208 wannabe models on the show whose names we learned, faces we dissected, and breakdowns we reveled in. So it's fitting…

“America’s Next Top Model” All-Stars Is Happening!

Embarrassingly, the announcement of an "America's Next Top Model" all-star season is the thing I am most excited about today. I will confess that I have seen every single episode of all 16 cycles (as has Amelia … sorry for outing you). It's awful, I know. But it is like reality crack to me.
