So This Is What Becomes Of Eliminated “Top Model” Contestants

No wonder all the model hopefuls cry when they get eliminated from "America's Next Top Model" -- a troublesome fate awaits them. Allison Harvard, Cycle 12's runner-up, looks like she's been busy since her season aired. She started a cult in her living room and now she's looking for disciples. Anyone interested?

Frisky Q&A: Adrianne Curry On Her Extremely Surreal Life

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…

Tyra Banks Impersonates The Stereotypical “ANTM” Hopefuls

Every year on "America's Next Top Model," Tyra Banks inevitably has the contestants do an acting challenge where she trots out her "acting coach." In this cycle 16 promo, Tyra proves that she actually can sort of act, and has decent comedic timing, as she mocks some of the most common types who appear at…

“ANTM” Winner Ann Ward Is Just As Embarrassed By Her Ugly Duckling Photo As We Are

"I don’t even know when that was taken — I don’t remember sending it in. I actually think my mom did. But it was probably one morning when I was really tired, not that happy and in the mood for bacon. I can’t believe they showed it that much — even my mom was saying…

Tyra Banks’ New Gig: Commercial Director

On last night's "America's Next Top Model," rather than have the final four model wannabes do yet another photo shoot, Tyra Banks challenged them to do what she called a "motion advertorial." So, uh, what is that? One of those high-falutin commercials you sometimes see on fashion designers' websites, complete with trippy visuals and moody…

Caridee And Marilyn Make Sweet … Music Together

Last week, we declared Caridee English one of the top 10 most successful "America's Next Top Model" alumni. Meaning, she's made it as a model and television host and isn't waiting tables. But now it appears that she has a new ambition beyond simply smeyezing. She wants to be a musician. Apparently, she's been recording…

“ANTM” Challenges Girls To Conveyor Belt Runways Of Death

Sometimes we think "America's Next Top Model" should be renamed "America's Next Top Indiana Jones In High Heels." Some of these challenges are absolutely insane! And dangerous! In the latest episode, Tyra sends the girls down a runway with super speedy conveyor belts. Mix that with high heels and floor-length gowns and you're asking for…

Epic “Australia’s Next Top Model” Fail

Did you know that Tyra Banks' "Top Model" franchise has spread across the globe and that there are versions of the show in a bunch of other countries? Well, the Australian version of the show is gonna be getting a call from Banks, I'll bet, after the epic fail that was their finale episode of…

Extremely Thin Girl Cast — And Then Cast Off — “America’s Next Top Model”

Before Cycle 15 of "America's Next Top Model" even began, much fuss was made about Ann, a tall and gawky contestant with the most narrow waist in the world. But after last night's episode, it's clear that the model to truly be concerned about is Anamaria, 19, who, at 5'10" and 110 lbs., thinks she…

“Top Model”‘s Classy Makeover Is Missing One Thing

"America's Next Top Model" is supposedly getting a "high-class makeover" for its 15th "cycle," which premieres September 8th. Last season, the long-running series debuted a new judge, Vogue's posh-accented and imposing Andre Leon Talley, and he, well, seemed a touch out of place amongst the otherwise campy production. So this season, instead of winning a…

Derek J Is The New Miss J

If you haven't been watching the new Oxygen reality show "Hair Battle Spectacular," I suggest you correct that right away. In case you need any further enticing other than a contestant named Minista (she is actually an ordained minister), I offer up the show's star judge, Derek J, the Queen of the fantasy hair world.

Michaele Salahi And Shandi Sullivan Could Have Been Separated At Birth

This weekend, while catching up on "The Real Housewives of DC," I couldn't shake the feeling that I'd seen Michaele Salahi before, and not just from the White House party-crashing incident. The big, curly blond hair, the beaked nose, the thin, willowy frame. And then it hit me. She looks almost identical to Shandi Sullivan,…

Get Ready For “America’s Next Top Circus Freak”

It's "America's Next Top Model" Cycle 15 trailer time ... and I'm scared. Based on what I've seen so far, I'm thinking they should re-name the show "America's Next Top Circus Freak."…

“America’s Next Top Model” Finale: The Battle Of The Eyebrows

"America's Next Top Model" has been on for 14 cycles now. At this point, we all know the show's tropes by heart: At least one girl will always be late after the go-see challenge. The ugly duckling always becomes a swan. The girl dubbed "commercial" doesn't have a chance. Someone will always have an on-camera…

America’s Next Top Vampire

Anyone catch "America's Next Top Model," the vampire edition? While I'm shocked they never thought to do this before (like back when vampires were a huge craze and stuff?), I am super glad they waited until Andre Leon Talley was on the show and could call out specific moments of "dreckitude" involved in shooting these…

Andre Leon Talley Makes Me Slightly More Interested In “ANTM”

I'll just go ahead and put it right out there: I do not watch "America's Next Top Model." Never have, and never had any plans to, until now. I could seriously just sit and watch Vogue's Andre Leon Talley all the diggity day long. I love his wink-wink faux-Euro accent (he's from South Carolina, genius!)…

Tyra Is Officially Trying To Harm The “Top Models”

Tyra Banks, you're so mean. On last night's episode of "America's Next Top Model," TyTy had the models stomp the runway in sexy, tight Rachel Roy gowns, while huge clock gongs swung at them. I suppose it was meant to be an exercise in timing your strut, but one model failed badly -- twice! First…

Quickies: Yoanna House Wants A Fake Tan & Woman Who Lied About Rape Is Sentenced

"Top Model" winner Yoanna House is looking less model-y, and more like a cast member on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." [TMZ] Girls as young as 6 are self-conscious and wish their bodies were skinnier. [Shine] Johnny Depp says he was pleasantly surprised when meeting Angelina Jolie. [Starpulse] The Supreme Court is still trying…

“ANTM” Gets Some Free American Apparel Ho-Wear

OK, so I don't know for sure that the model wannabes competing in Cycle 14 of "America's Next Top Model" are wearing American Apparel, but their monokinis, leotards, and jewel-tone tights look an awful lot like Dov Charney's wares. Too bad the new crop of hopefuls aren't as interesting as the "models" on the America…
