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 season. And I was all ready to report that my favorite supermodel-turned-mogul was going to out-fierce Tyra Banks on her own show, but, sadly, the CW is denying this report. Something needs to happen, though, to save this sinking ship, which had its worst ratings during Cycle 13. Find out the other bizarre rumor after the jump. Keep reading »

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 drop the flamboyant antics in favor of getting real. He revealed to the audience that he’s a father to a young boy, who was conceived after he and his ex-boyfriend both donated sperm to a female friend who wanted to have a child. While his sperm didn’t take (the ex’s sperm did), he’s very involved in young Alex’s life. It was fabulous to get a glimpse into the real Miss J. Keep reading »

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 and the other judges during the final fashion show, which will feature designs from Julie Clancy. He won’t be there to judge but rather to cheer on his daughter Bria Murphy, who will walk the runway with the remaining contestants. Bria is following in the footsteps of her mother Nicole Murphy with this career choice. [E! Online] Keep reading »

Tyra Banks Celebrates Halloween As A Kardashian

At first glance, it may seem like Tyra isn’t looking any different than she usually does on the Halloween episode of her show (which airs tomorrow). But then you may notice that her booty is a little curvier, her hair a tad darker and waved just so, and her stance eerily familiar. There’s clearly a thin line between Tyra and Kim Kardashian, and this Halloween costume is either totally genius or incredibly blah. Your verdict? (Preview of the episode is after the jump.)

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 was ahead of the curve — in Cycle 4, which aired in 2005, the models dressed up as mothers of other races and there was some blackface then too. Check out a few more images, after the jump. [ET Online] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Tyra Does A Show On Women Who Hit Their Boyfriends

  • Yesterday, Tyra Banks did a show on “battered men syndrome,” about when women hit their boyfriends. OK, Tyra, listen up: While physical abuse is just as wrong when it happens to men, the fact is woman-on-man violence is not representative of the actual face of domestic violence. According to the American Bar Association, 1.3 million women are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually, compared with 835,000 men. Studies have also shown women are more likely to be killed by an intimate partner than men. A show like yours just contributes to the mistaken belief that women are just as likely to abuse their partners as men and dilutes how power dynamics between women and men factor into abuse.

  • The city of Puebla, Mexico has introduced pink taxi cabs driven for women, by women to respond to the problem of “leering drivers.” Oh, hi, Mexico? How about punishing the “leering drivers” who are sexually harassing female cab customers instead? [Feministing]

    Girl Talk: Is A Lack Of Physical Attraction Really A Cover-Up For Other Relationship Issues?

    On yesterday’s episode of “The Tyra Show,” Tyra spoke with a married couple who were barely having sex because the woman no longer felt attracted to her husband. She said she wasn’t attracted to him since he put on weight and admitted that when they did have sex, all she could think about was getting it over with. The audience seemed to be expecting a big ol’ whale when her husband walked out on stage, but the guy was actually pretty average looking. As a result, the experts on the panel concluded that there must be other issues in their marriage, if the wife was that repulsed physically, and the audience agreed. So do I. Keep reading »

    Tyra Makes Bank!

    Forbes has released its annual list of “Prime-Time’s Top-Earning Women.” And who wants to be on top? Tyra Banks out-posed the competition, earning $30 million last year—almost twice as much as uber-annoying Katherine Heigl, who clocked in at number two in the survey at $18 million. I couldn’t even pick the third highest earner, Marg Helgenberger, out of a lineup, even though she made $9.5 million last year. All I have to say is that Tina Fey needs to tell her agent to up the ante, because she deserves to out-earn all three of those ladies for writing and starring in one of the best shows on TV. Heck, Tina can even make an American Express commercial enjoyable. In the meantime, I’m sure Tyra is smeyesing all the way to the bank. [The Wrap]

    Tyra Banks Drops 30 Pounds, Sends Mixed Messages To Young Fans

    When I watched our own Kiki T. on “Tyra” yesterday I noticed something quite different from the last time I watched the show nearly year ago: Tyra was one skinny bitch! Huh, I thought, When did that happen? Didn’t she famously tell everyone to kiss her fat ass not too long ago? I thought she said she liked being curvy. This morning, new photos of the 5’10″ Tyra flaunting her new size-8 figure on a shoot around New York City have hit newspapers and blogs. Joining the ranks of Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and countless other female celebs who publicly claim to love their fuller figures only to then drop a bunch of weight, Tyra has recently lost 30 lbs. and is excited to show off her smaller frame. She especially likes showing it off nekkid: “I might be doing a little TMI — I always feel great when I don’t have clothes on.” Keep reading »

    Kiki T. Takes On Tyra Banks!


    Today was a great day! Two of the people I would most like to have sitting at my table at a dinner party appeared on TV together! That’s right, our own Astrosexologist, Kiki T., appeared on “Tyra”! Kiki sat down with the wackadoodle talk show host to talk about the astrological signs that are most likely to cheat — Gemini and Pisces, FYI — as well as answer audience member questions, much like she does in her “Ask The Astrosexologist” column on The Frisky. Check out her appearance above and then get your own dose of Kiki by reading her Friskyscopes and “In Bed With” columns. Keep reading »
