Tyra Banks’ show does little for its contestants than jump start their reality TV careers and entertain whomever watches ANTM (apparently, somebody still does) with tall, thin twenty-somethings jumping on trampolines while smizing until their eyes bleed. Sometimes, however, great results can come out of odd circumstances. More
Rogue Magazine has a story up right now alleging that the popular fashion blogger and America’s Next Top Model judge Bryan Boy built his life around credit fraud and is really some kind of charlatan. More
