“America’s Next Top Model” Winner Lands Real Fashion Campaign

Fashion insiders (and savvy reality TV watchers) know that for all the delish ridiculosity that is "America's Next Top Model," most of these girls are never gonna make it in the real world of high fashion modeling. Ever notice how the winners are a far cry from your Sashas and Karlies and Stams of the…

Crystal Renn Rings In The New Year

We love this glamorous fashion story from Elle Canada starring America's Next Top plus-sized model Crystal Renn ringing in the New Year. Shot by Leda & St. Jacque, the series flaunts Renn's full figure, rather than trying to hide it, as the party girl flits from dressing room to dance floor to boudoir. Check out…

Slow-Talker Nicole Is America’s Next Top Shorty

And there she is, folks. The winner of "America's Next Top Model" cycle 13, aka, the shorty season. In last night's episode, red-headed space case Nicole—who, uh, loves motorcycles and thrill-seeking?—beat out sweet-as-humble-pie Laura, the bull-castrater from Kentucky. Far too many times in this season, Tyra declared that something was happening, "for the first time…

Judge Shake-Up On “ANTM” Sounds Too Far-Fetched To Believe

Back when former supermodel Paulina Porizkova was ousted from her position as judge on "America's Next Top Model," we gave you our dream replacement list that included Naomi Campbell, Agyness Deyn, and Kate Moss. Never did we imagine that Kimora Lee Simmons would return to the show as a permanent judge after leaving the first…

Miss J Reveals He’s A Father On “Tyra”

"Runway diva coach extraordinaire," Miss J. Alexander, who is promoting his book Follow the Model, was on "The Tyra Show" yesterday and gave what was actually a totally refreshing and interesting interview. I was surprised, frankly, because Miss J plays such a caricature on "America's Next Top Model," and I didn't expect to see him…

Eddie Murphy Will Join Tyra On “Top Model” Finale

Oh, "America's Next Top Model," how we wish you were still a good show! Too bad two more people are about to be dragged down by this show. A CW source has revealed that Eddie Murphy (as if he could get any lower after denying he fathered Scary Spice's baby) will appear alongside Tyra Banks

Tyra Jumps On The Blackface Bandwagon

ET Online has posted photos from tonight's (?) episode of "America's Next Top Model" in which Tyra has the models, uh, transform to look biracial, which means many of them pose with blackface. So hot right now! Of course, if Tyra were writing this post, she would be quick to remind us that she wa…

Brittany "Bre" Scullark, an "America's Next Top Model" Cycle Five semi-finalist, was arrested in NYC yesterday for disorderly conduct.

Miss J.’s Tips On How To Work A Runway

Maybe it's that I was drinking—no, chugging—the Fashion's Night Out Kool-Aid the other night, but, gotta say, getting out and about and shopping felt pretty damn good, though not in a "I'm slapping down my credit card" way. Anyways, I wasn't the only one who turned up at H&M's Herald Square store. Miss J. Alexander…

“America’s Next Top Model”‘s Latest Lovable Looney

There's always at least one crazy (in addition to Tyra) on each season cycle of "America's Next Top Model" and if you watched last night's premiere, you know that person for cycle 13 was Amber. Amber was doing "ANTM" for Jesus. Yes, Jesus. Jesus wanted her to be on a CW modeling show to hel…

Tyra Banks To Ditch Her Weave

Warning: Tyra Banks is listening. A few weeks ago, after Solange Knowles buzzed her hair, we wondered if the recession was killing the weave, and suggested that Ms. Smile With Her Eyes get rid of hers, too. And apparently, she is! Here's what she Twittered yesterday: “Guess What! I’m rockin’ my REAL hair on my…

Caridee English Is America’s Next Top Slob

If you’re an avid "ANTM" fan like me, then of course you remember the seemingly sweet and likable Cycle 7 winner, Caridee English. I was sympathetic toward her after she revealed her childhood struggle with eczema, and I totally rejoiced when she beat that annoying, know-it-all Melrose. (I can almost hear her awful voice ringing…

Yet ANOTHER Model Show? Make It Stop.

TV Land is normally my haven for “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne” reruns. But lately, the network's branched out into original shows, like “The Cougar,” basically a “Bachelorette” rip-off where the lady doing the picking is 40 and the guys are all in their 20s. Tonight at 9pm is the season premiere of “She’s Got…
