Tyra Banks Explains Shocking “America’s Next Top Model” Firings

Apparently the contestants on "America's Next Top Model" aren't the only ones in need of a makeover. The world was shocked last week when Tyra Banks suddenly fired her team consisting of Nigel Barker, Miss J. Alexander and Jay Manuel ... and now we know why. "We reached a point, where were feel the show needs a new boost,” Tyra told Access Hollywood at the 2012 Matrix Awards in New York…

Tyra Banks Cleans House For The Next Season Of “Top Model”

I guess Tyra Banks is aware that she's grasping at straws on this season of "America's Next Top Model." You know when you do a segment called "Tooch Teach" that it's time to change stuff up. After 19 Cycles of almost exactly the same thing, Tyra has decided to clean house for the next seaso…

A Breakdown Of Tyra Banks’ Tooch Teach On Last Night’s “Top Model”

This season of "America's Next Top Model" has been particularly dull. The UK vs. US premise seems secondary to Tyra's shameless attempts to promote her Modelland books. Last night, Tyra achieved an unprecedented level of ridiculousness with her "booty tooch teach." She had special "booty tooch" hot shorts and "training tooches" (ass pads) for all…

The Next Season Of “America’s Next Top Model” Will Feature A British Invasion

For the next season of "America's Next Top Model," host Tyra Banks is hoping to incite an age-old rivalry between the Brits and Americans. She's bringing some of her past British "Top Model" contestants over to go up against a crop of seven new model babies in "ANTM: British Invasion." One's already doing the "booty

Tyra Cops To Playing A Role On “ANTM”

“When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on ‘Top Model.’ And it’s a character ... So, when I’m sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I’m like, ‘Your picture’s not fierce…’ talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character ... I…

“Top Model” ["Pot Ledom"] All-Stars Go Viral

Last night's episode of "Top Model" (or should I say "Pot Ledom"?) was "absolutely epic" to quote Amelia. The all-stars had to write, record, and make music videos to "go viral." Best catch: they had to work the hook "Pot Ledom" (Top Model spelled backwards) into their songs. Another weird-as-s**t Tyra brainchild. Of course, Tyra…

Just What You Always Wanted: A “Top Model” Fragrance

If you thought the all-star season of "America's Next Top Model" was indication that the model competition show had jumped the shark, think again.

Vogue Rips Off “America’s Next Top Model,” Sort Of

Remember when Tyra made the girls of cycle six of "America's Next Top Model" pretend they were some broken down dolls? It looks like art is now imitating reality TV. In this spread for Vogue Italia -- you know, the magazine that ANTM's winner gets a spread in? -- photographer Tim Walker shoots models Audrey Marnay…

17 Celebs Doing The “Booty Tooch”

Tyra Banks (with the help of Kristin Cavallari's butt) may have coined the term "booty tooch" to denote an over-exaggerated arch of the lower back to accentuate the posterior,  but it's hardly a new move. Watch out "America's Next Top Model" hopefuls, because celebs have been tooching their booties, like, forever, they just didn't know it…

Video: Tyra Banks & Rachael Ray Are “A Little Gay” For Each Other

Tyra Banks was on "The Rachael Ray Show" this week, and amid the regular culinary-themed discussion, got to talking about teenage games of spin the bottle. Rachael got flustered and faux-bicurious, and before you could say "smize please," the pair were making a date for a spin the bottle session of their own. Apparently fake girl-on-girl romance i…

Tyra Tries To Make The “Booty Tooch” Her New Thing

Last night's epsiode of "America's Next Top Model" was a rollicking good time. It was fun to watch Kristin Cavallari give the girls tips on striking while the iron is hot on their reality TV fame. And I am so excited that the gals finally did an interesting photo shoot—posing atop high fashion stilts. But…

Andre Leon Talley Out, Kelly Cutrone In In “ANTM”?

Who can understand the whims and desires of International Top Supermodel and Media Mogul Tyra Banks? For the past several cycles she's had the inimitable Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley as a panel judge for the show, but now rumor has it that he'll be replaced by PR guru/life coach/"The City" HBIC Kelly Cutrone.

12 Tips For Surviving The “Top Model” House (From A Former Contestant)

The new season of "America’s Next Top Model" premieres tonight, and while the returning “All-Stars” may consider themselves experts by now, it's been a while since most of them lived in the infamous “Top Model” house.  Coming fresh off last season, I feel it's my duty to remind them of a few important do's and…

Tyra Banks Is Haunted By The Ghosts Of “Top Model” Contestants Past

What is Tyra Banks' worst nightmare? Being haunted by the girls who didn't quite win "America's Next Top Model" and want another chance. In this awesome promo for "ANTM: All-Stars," Tyra shows off her acting skills (read: embarrasses herself) by channeling Camille, Laura, Isis, and blood-obsessed Allison. Honestly, I think the decision to do a…

Tyra Banks Critiques Tiny Hat Models

Professional models don't get to choose what they model, but they do have to model through it no matter what. Even if what they're contracted to wear happens to be a ridiculous tiny hat, say. "America's Next Top Model" creator and host Tyra Banks knows this, and she frequently chastises her model-testants for not putting…
