Thank heavens Tyra Banks went to Harvard Business School. Otherwise, the groundbreaking new word “beautytainment” might not have entered the pop-culture lexicon during tonight’s America’s Next Top Model Cycle 21 finale.
Oh yes, you know Ty-Ty had to cross-promotionally synergize the bejeezus out of the two-hour installment. First, she brought back the season’s nine eliminated hopefuls, then had the four remaining finalists choose “teams” and shoot spots for various products in her new “Tyra” makeup line. (#IsThatARealThing?)
We didn’t immediately get to see the finished product, and instead jumped right ahead to a Guess? fashion shoot photographed »
"The Girl Who Says it's Over" -- Models team up to for a photo shoot challenge with judge Kelly Cutrone resulting in two models recognizing the need to put their personal relationship on hold. The models then discover their common ancestry links when heritage comes into play as the styling concept for a futuristic sci-fi photo shoot that features a special guest posing as a robot. »
It feels like a month since America's Next Top Model had a new episode. That's because the last time we saw these fresh, wrinkle-free faces was way back September 22. That was a whole 11 days ago and since then so much has happened in the world of prime time TV that it seems a millennia since we've been on set with the remaining 10 models, celebrity judges Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone and Miss J. Alexander, and photo shoot creative consultant Yu Tsai. But we're back tonight with "The Guy Who Wears Heels" and it feels good to catch up.
So "The Guy Who Wears Heels" is the Friday night time slot debut for Antm. Hopefully most viewers are aware of the shift and can find us all the way over here on the other end of the week so they can and join us next week if they missed us tonight. There »
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County first premiered on MTV. What’s crazier to think about is that America’s Next Top Model has been on air for 21 cycles, The Real Housewives franchise has expanded from Orange County to six other cities in the U.S. alone, and New York no longer refers to the city or state. Over the past decade, these reality shows have produced a number of stars who have built a career around being on reality TV. Just look at Bethenny Frankel, who first got started on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart before becoming a household name on The Real Housewives of New York.
And after leaving the show to pursue solo projects, it was announced on Wednesday that she is returning to the long-running franchise for its seventh season. Frankel can certainly be considered a »

The last season of America's Next Top Model was the first to mix men and women in the competition. The ratings for season 20 were slightly lower than season 19's however they had been dropping at a much greater rate in previous years. Could the ratings rise this year or will they fall even lower? Will Antm be cancelled or renewed for a 22nd cycle? Stay tuned?
On America's Next Top Model, Tyra Banks, J. Alexander, and Kelly Cutrone judge 14 aspiring models (seven females and seven males). Each contestant is trying to win a $100,000 cash prize, a modeling contract, and a feature in Nylon Magazine.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings »
Fans of fashion will want to add Kelly Cutrone’s new digital talk series to their “must watch” lineup. The Kelly Cutrone Project, hosted and produced by the New York Times best-selling author and America’s Next Top Model judge, launched on Saturday, September 6, on CW Seed. The first episode shows Kelly heading to the headquarters of Elle Magazine in New York to talk with her longtime friend Joe Zee, creative director for the publication. The two discuss the opportunities available in fashion for people wanting to work in the industry, as well as how fashion shows have changed over the years and what people can expect from them in the future. Zee and Cutrone also offer some applicable advice to viewers looking to get the “star style” and invest in some fashion staples. Elle’s creative director suggest things like a white tee shirt and “a sick pair of heels” for women, »

America's Next Top Model is back with 31 of the freshest contestants we've seen since, er, last season, and that's not all that's new. By the time the hour is over, however, nine contestants' modeling futures will end up in the gutter while the remaining 22 get a nasty little surprise.
If any in the group had majored in math, they would have figured this week's results were too good to be true: the largest group to make it to the 'show' was cycle 20's 16 models. So ... what gives? Kelly Cutrone is the bearer of bad news at the end of the premiere, so we'll save it for then.
America’s Next Top Model Cycle 21 premieres tonight and along with the returning fierceness of Tyra Banks, and PR Maven Kelly Cutrone, fan favorite and runway diva extraordinaire Miss J. Alexander returns as judge. The model hopefuls are competing for a career-launching prize package that includes a $100,000 cash prize from Guess, a fashion feature in Nylon Magazine and a modeling contract with Next Model Management. Miss J. called me from Paris, where he was busy hand-sewing the 6-foot long train for his boyfriend’s sister’s wedding and we had a lovely chat. Who wouldn’t love to wear a Miss J … Continue reading →

Kim Kardashian West squeezed her famous curves into a figure hugging beige crop top and matching skirt as she arrived at a restaurant in the Hamptons for a family dinner. Recently the keeping up with the Kardashians star was mocked about her fashion sense. 'America's Next Top Model' judge Kelly Cutrone claims Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian West "have no influence in the fashion world whatsoever". Kelly has scoffed at Kanye's past claims when he stated he was as important to fashion as Steve Jobs, the late founder of Apple, was to technology and insists he is a nobody in the industry despite having his Dw Kanye West line. Speaking to the New York Daily News newspaper's Confidenti@l column, she said: "I don't think there's one person who really works in the fashion industry who gives a flying f**k about Kanye West." Speaking about Kim, »
Miss J is back. Runway coach J. Alexander is returning to The CW's America's Next Top Model for its 21st cycle (he was let go along with Nigel Barker and Jay Manuel following the 18th cycle amid declining ratings but continued to appear on international editions of the modeling competition). Miss J replaces Rob Evans, joining executive producer/creator Tyra Banks and Kelly Cutrone on the judges' panel. (Creative director Johnny Wujek is being replaced by photographer Yu Tsai.) Ahead of the season premiere at 9 p.m. on Aug. 18, Miss J spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about his

CW Seed, the digital-only studio of The CW, said today it has set summer premieres for La Rangers, created by and starring Hart Of Dixie star Wilson Bethel, and webisodes of the network’s improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway? Four more original series have landed summer bows: an untitled comedy from Alloy Entertainment, previously announced fashion series The Kelly Cutrone Project; The Real Backpackers, a companion to the broadcast series Backpackers; and Veronica Mars spinoff Play It Again, Dick. The new series will join new episodes of returning original series Husbands, The P.E.T. Squad Files, Very Mallory and CelebTV On The CW. Here are descriptions of the new shows: L.A. Rangers stars Bethel (“Hart of Dixie,” “Stupid Hype”) and his partner, director Dugan O’Neal, as two naïve, borderline delusional, wannabe filmmakers working as park rangers in La’s Griffith Park. Each episode follows them as they are pulled from their regular, »

“L.A. Rangers,” created by and starring “Hart of Dixie” star Wilson Bethel, centers on two aspiring filmmakers working as rangers in La’s Griffith Park. In each episode of the series, penned and produced by Bethel and Dugan O’Neal, the two are pulled into movie versions of their dreams.
Building on the success of the long-running “Whose Line,” which stars Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles and is hosted by Aisha Tyler, “Whose Line is it Minis” will pack 30 minutes of content into two-minute webisodes, including bloopers and outtakes.

Anchored by Husbands and an upcoming Veronica Mars web series, CW Seed is beginning to build up an impressive library of content. The latest addition to The CW's digital platform is The Kelly Cutrone Project, a talk show hosted by America's Next Top Model judge Kelly Cutrone. Cutrone first gained notability through her appearances on three MTV reality shows: True Life, The Hills, and The City. On those programs, she shows her savvy as a fashion PR guru, which undoubtedly helped her land her current gig on America's Next Top Model. Her memoir, published in 2010, became a New York Times bestseller. On her CW Seed series, Cutrone will pass her wits onto the viewer via a talk show format. A press release claims the show will discuss "everything from fashion, to pop culture, to things your mother never wanted to tell you." "It is a revolutionary time in media and »
