A Sequel To “Life Size” Is On The Way!

Vintage Lindsay Lohan fans, rejoice! A sequel to the oh-so-fabulous Disney film “Life Size” is in the works, and I am thrilled. The made-for-TV-movie, which came out in 2000, stars Lindsay as troubled pre-teen Casey and Tyra Banks as Eve, a doll that comes to life. It’s every little girl’s dream (or nightmare)! The two ladie…

“Squinching” May Be The New Duck Face, But I Think It’s Just “Smizing” Under A Different Name

Someone get Tyra Banks on the phone! There’s a hot “new” trend in posing ridiculously for photos called “squinching,” but I’m pretty sure Tyra’s go-to “Top Model” tip — SMIZE! — has just been stolen and rebranded under a different name. According to the Daily Mail, which shouts out Tyra’s smize in its intro, photographer Peter Hurley…

Tyra Banks Tries Whiteface To Pay Homage To Her Fellow Model Idols

Did you forget about Tyra Banks for five seconds? Because she’s got a plan to make herself talked about once more. The “America’s Next Top Model” host and smize-ing overlord created a series of photos for photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth’s exhibition, Tyra Banks Presents: 15, in which Tyra “transforms” herself into several iconic models — Kate Moss and…

Imagined Backstories For The New Season Of “America’s Next Top Model” Contestants

Hard to believe, but “America’s Next Top Model” is now in its 20th cycle. Yup, Tyra’s been lording it over wanna-be models since forever. This season’s a little bit different: She’ll have both male and female contestants competing against one another. Will there be catfights and sexual tension? Probs. Sigh.

We’re So Pumped For “America’s Next Top Model,” Guys Versus Girls

It took you long enough, Tyra Banks: for the past 19 cycles, “America’s Next Top Model” has been all about teaching the ladies how to booty tooch. Last season we were lucky if we got a little bit of Rob Evans with his shirt off. But on August 2, Cycle 20 debuts with all whole…

This What Tyra Banks’ Smize Yourself! App Did To My Face

OMFG! I’ve discovered the most worthwhile way to waste time EVER. Amelia informed me that a Tyra Banks Smize Yourself! app existed and of course, I purchased it immediately.

Basically, you line up your face in a cut out and then you smize into the camera while Tyra tells you how “fierce” you…

Frisky Q&A: Kiara Belen, Runner-Up On “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 19

She wants to be on top! Kiara Belen placed runner-up on Cycle 19 of “America’s Next Top Model,” the college edition. The gorgeous, statuesque former UC Irvine basketball player lost to cornsilk-blonde Laura James, the daughter of “Dynasty” actor John James, in an extremely close final panel. But as pained as I felt watching Kiara…

Kristin Tells Off The Other Girls On “America’s Next Top Model,” Posts Angry Facebook Rant

When I heard that Kristin, the super-genetically blessed blonde girl on this cycle of “America’s Next Top Model,” was only 19, I felt relieved. At least she’s young enough that she still has time to shake that whole “I think I’m Regina George in ‘Mean Girls'” thing.

On Friday’s episode of “ANTM,” Kristi…

Victoria On “America’s Next Top Model” And The Scourge Of Faux Concern

Every reality show competition has its oddball and Victoria on “America’s Next Top Model” fits it to a ‘T.’ She was homeschooled, attends online schooling at uber-religious Liberty University, and when she “gets in character” she over-acts during all her photoshoots … like in the most recent episode when she spat at the photographer. Victoria…

Woo Hoo! Next Season Of “ANTM” Will Include Male Models!

Finally, Tyra has heard my prayers that “America’s Next Top Model” should just be 42 straight minutes of Rob Evans shirtless! Or something like that: THE next season of “America’s Next Top Model” will have male models competing right alongside the female ones. They are all going to be living in the house together,…

Tyra Banks Tweets Photo Of Her “Muffin Top”

Sometimes when Tyra Banks booty tooches, she gets juicy muffin top, but she doesn’t care dammit! Tyra posted this photo to her Instagram, drawing attention to the only-slightly-noticeable-because-she-pointed-out extra bit o’ flesh over her jeans, and emphasized how she felt about said muffin top by including the hashtag #perfectisboring. But, like, how long until Tyra…

Oops! Tyra Forgot To Smize

Do as she says, not as she does, “America’s Next Top Model” hopefuls. Tyra Banks forgot to smize during a recent jog in NYC. I believe she would refer to this look as “dead in the face” or “ugly, ugly” as opposed to “ugly pretty.” Or maybe she was just setting an example of what…

Ryan Lochte Smizes, Shows Tyra Banks His Duck Lips

I don’t think I’ve ever been less attracted to Ryan Lochte than in this photo. Put the duck lips away, sexy! You don’t need to pout to look good.

This Is What Happens When You Mate Tyra Banks With A Nipple

Whoopee, tonight is the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle 19! The college edition, or something. I really hope Tyra has some new stuff in store. I mean, after 18 seasons, things get stale. Although I have no commentary to offer as of yet, I honor the return of “ANTM” with this genius morphing…

5 Things You Should Know About New “America’s Next Top Model Judge” Bryanboy

There’s been a lot of shake ups in Tyra Banks’ “Top Model” world of late.

Flashy Or Fresh: Which Celebrity Look Do You Prefer?

Tyra Banks showed up to the Moth Gala earlier this week in a face full of makeup. Supermodels like her are used to wearing extreme looks for photoshoots, but this was definitely a risque — even comical look. Tyra has admitted on “America’s Next Top Model,” that her face can handle a lot of makeup, but what do you think?
