Andre Leon Talley Accused of Being Racist

Every year on the Fourth of July, the mastermind behind the blog Crazy Days and Nights reveals some of his blind items from throughout the year. There are always some real surprises among the reveals, and this year was no exception. Here’s the original blind item post:

Could it be this person is just ticked they didn’t win? Could be, but let us judge for ourselves. This ex contestant (you will never get it) of a top ranked non cable reality show spilled that one of the show’s judges hates white people. The judge makes no effort to talk to anyone who is white and will go out of their way to not talk to white people. During the taping of the show, the cameras would have to roll for a very, very long time to ever hear anything positive about a white contestant from this judge. Most of the time it would take a prompt from a producer to get the judge to say anything remotely positive about the white contestants.

That item was revealed yesterday to be about Andre Leon Talley on America’s Next Top Model. But do we believe it? The author of the post leaves room to speculate that the source of the story could have just been a bitter former contestant who was pissed about not winning. And Andre obviously loves and is BFF with Anna Wintour, who is white. So who knows?

    Not that I’m all about racism, no matter where it’s coming from or is directed, but in my book, Andre Leon Talley can do whatever the fuck he wants.

    I’m with you val1124. So one white person got ignores, “Oh No!”. Probably just some spoiled little brat who didn’t make the cut. Get over it!!! not that I’m down with racism either.

    Andre Leon Talley – if you watch through all of season 14 of ANTM, even just go on CWtv.com and skip forward to the judge deliberation, He almost NEVER says anything but negative feedback about a white model. I think i may have heard one good thing said about Reina on episode 10 on the first half of the 2 hour show at the judge deliberation just something like “Strong photo” or some BS i could tell he was PUSHING out of his mouth just to make America happy. I had been watching this whole season off of hulu.com on cwtv.com and about 4 episodes in i realized… what’s up with this dude only giving the black girls praise for their photos? After i had fully watched the whole season with it set in my mind that this guy is a definite racist, I wanted to see if anyone else agreed with me and noticed it too? Following a google search about Andre’s racism, I come to find out a contestant ALSO said the same along with multiple ANTM fans. I guess really all we can do is wait and see what will happen on Season 15. If he STILL is choosing black girls pictures all the time over white girls, you know that it cant just be their pretty face getting his attention.

    My boyfriend and I are of mixed (b+w) heritage and we agree that Andre is racist. It was painful for him to acknowledge anything positive about the non black girls and he was championing all the black girls. This is a shame because with the likes of Tyra and all the other stinking attitude black girls on ANTM it really isn’t a good representative of black people.
