“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 help people, or something. And she was so sincere about it! Unfortunately, though she made it to the Top 14, Amber mysteriously had to drop out of the show for “personal reasons” which means we’re depending on Tyra, and only Tyra, to bring the crazy this season. Sigh. Relive Amber’s brief moment in the spotlight, above. Keep reading »

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 talk show September 8th. No fake hair at all! Will be the hair coming out of my scalp! 4 all 2 C!”

“No ponytails, no ballet bun head. hair will be out and free! i have had every color weave in the book. even KOOL-AID red!!!”

“America’s Next Top Shorty” Contestants Announced

Wanna be on top? Well, these girls certainly do. The CW has released the names and photos of the 14 women who’ll be competing in cycle 13 of “America’s Next Top Model.” At this point, the show has gotten pretty formulaic. We know there’ll be a makeover episode where pounds of mascara will be washed away by tears. We know Tyra will demonstrate to the ladies how to smile with their eyes. We know that some fool will be late back to home base after the go-see challenge. But Tyra is shaking things up a bit this season on her super-popular vanity project modeling show. Only women who are between 5’2″ and 5’7″ were allowed to audition. In other words, they’re shorties, which is semi-revolutionary, since the fashion industry usually turns their back on anyone under 5’9″. Another big change? Paulina Porizkova won’t be sitting on the judge’s panel. Perhaps Kate Moss will be her replacement? Keep reading »

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 in my ears, “I was so skinny as a child that I had to learn to make my own clothes!”) That’s why I was floored when I found out that Caridee might be America’s Next Top SLOB. An anonymous New Yorker recently outed her, claiming that she sublet her apartment to English and her boyfriend via Craigslist. When she moved back in after a couple of weeks, this unsuspecting victim found her apartment looking like a cross between a sorority house and a mental institution. Now that’s a reality show I’d like to see: “Reality TV Sublets Gone Wrong.” After the jump, the disgusting details of Caridee’s alleged trail of destruction. [Gawker] Keep reading »

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 The Look,” the show that looks to “discover the next supermodel over the age of 35.” And I’ve got some pretty mixed feelings about it.

Quickies!: The Feds Try To Take A Tot’s Illicit Drugs

  • The Food and Drug Administration is demanding Cheerios change its advertising that says the cereal will reduce cholesterol by 4 percent or risk being removed from market shelves. [Dumb As A Blog] — Way to get in bed with the drug industry, FDA!
  • Tahlia Brookins, 18, from the most recent cycle of “America’s Next Top Model” is pregnant. “I was told multiple times over and over that I couldn’t get pregnant … My initial reaction to my pregnancy was shock,” she said. [PopEater] — Good thing she was eliminated.
  • Judge Wade McCree in Detroit has a rather novel idea for sentencing fathers who don’t pay their child support.
