When she was the openly lesbian contender on the 18th cycle of America's Next Top Model, AzMarie Livingston was our obvious favorite. Since Antm, she's gone on to pursue her interests in music and acting. She can currently be seen in the Logo series Dtla (a new episode airs tonight) and is working on a new music video for her song "Morning Guarantee." We chatted with her via email about Dtla, fashion and enduring the media blitz caused by those rumors about her and actress Raven Symone.

AzMarie Livingston: I play the character of Ricki, Kimberly's young hot androgynous girlfriend. It was great working with Melanie. She was very kind and easy to work with, as was Sandra Bernhard. Being a rookie with »
Actress Raven-symone has hit back at tabloid speculation about her sexuality, insisting her love life is nobody's business but her own.
The former child star found herself under the spotlight this week (begs14May12) following a National Enquirer expose which suggested she had set up home in New York with rumoured girlfriend AzMarie Livingston, a contestant on Tyra Banks' reality TV show America's Next Top Model.
The article prompted an annoyed Symone to take to Twitter.com on Friday and lash out at the claims, although she refused to set the record straight about her sexual orientation, insisting the information should be private.
In a series of tweets, she writes, "I'm living my Personal life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one, in my 25 year career, to disclose who I'm dating. and I shall not start now. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings (sic) to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life.
"However that is my right as a Human BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I'm not harming anyone. I am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. Kisses!"
Symone is currently in the Big Apple starring in Broadway musical Sister Act. »
Raven-Symone has addressed a recent tabloid report which claims the former "The Cosby Show" star is in a romantic relationship and living with a woman -- AzMarie Livingston, an "America's Next Top Model" alumnus.
The 26-year-old actress took to Twitter to respond to the buzz and said her love life is no one's business but her own.
"I'm living my Personal life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I'm dating. and I shall not start now," the actress Tweeted on Friday. "My sexual orientation is mine, and the person ...

Raven-Symoné has never talked about her dating life, and she isn't going to start now, she says. According to the National Enquirer, Symoné is currently living in her New York City condo with girlfriend AzMarie Livingston, a contestant on America's Next Top Model. While not commenting on the report, Symoné did address the rumors in her own way and Tweeted Friday: "I'm living my Personal life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I'm dating. and I shall not start now. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. »
Earlier this week, the Internet lit up with rumors that former Disney star Raven Symone is gay. Now, the Broadway starlet is speaking out via Twitter, saying that her sexuality is no one's business but her own.
"My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life," Symone tweeted.
Rumors surrounding Symone's sexual orientation were first ignited by sources who told the National Enquirer that the former "Cosby Show" child star was shacking up with a female love interest -- openly gay "America's Next Top Model" contestant AzMarie Livingston -- in her New York City apartment.
“Raven has hidden being gay for a long time now,” a source told the National Enquirer. “But about a year ago, she was introduced by a friend to AzMarie, who is absolutely gorgeous. The two began seeing each other, and a few months ago, »

You guys, this is basically my relationship with Tyra at this point:
I may not be a pretty blonde teenage girl and she may not be a ghost-faced killer hellbent on my demise (...that I know of), but I'm beginning to think that Bankable Productions has been keeping an eye on me since I began trashing covering Top Model in cycle 16. How else do you explain yet another facet of an article I wrote about the show ending up making it...onto the show? First, that horrible, horrible villain toyed with me, eliminating contestant after contestant that I either loved or thought had the competition on lock (right after I wrote about them!) to let me know that she was coming for me. Now that I've spent a good three cycles cowering in the corner, fearing for my life (and the possibility of »

Former "Cheetah Girls" and "Cosby Show" star Raven Symone is yet again facing rumors that she's gay. And, according to some sources, not only has Symone come out of the closet but she's dating androgynous model AzMarie Livingston (pictured below) who competed on Tyra Banks' "America's Next Top Model."
The two are also reportedly living together in a New York condo, according to gossip site MediaTakeout. The site bases their report on a story they claim is set to be published in the National Enquirer.

"She's at a point now where she doesn't care what her family thinks, and she's in love with AzMarie," the story allegedly reads. "She's a lesbian and wants to live that way."
Livingston was booted from "Antm" when she refused to wear a butt pad in a "booty tooching" photo shoot.

Rarely does an elimination of Top Model surprise me. Irritate, befuddle, deflate - sure, all the time. I've been around these parts for going on 18 cycles, so I've seen my fair share of ridiculous ousters. But because I've been with the show from day one, it's made me a little numb to the type of antics they can pull. If you see it, believe it, and it's super-duper outlandish, Top Model has it on top of their to do list, so at this point in the show's life, surprises don't happen all that often.
I'll be damned, then, that I've been surprised at the past two eliminations, but pleasantly so. First, AzMarie got knocked off her high horse for failing to train her tooch and now Kyle, she of the ridiculous overpraise and little desire to be there, gets the boot? Be still my reality loving heart. »

After last week's shocking farewell to Azmarie on America's Next Top Model, we're looking forward to seeing what the show has in store for us this time around! After last week's lesson, the models will be using their finest booty tooches in this week's photoshoot - and what's more, they'll be posing with Estelle! Watch the preview trailer for the new episode below: As well as taking photos with Estelle, the models will create a PSA for an anti-bullying campaign, and the stakes are pretty high - the (more) »

Episode six of America's Next Top Model: British Invasion featured the departure of the provocative Azmarie. Her exit was both swift and predictable, given that she declined to participate in the "booty tooch teach," in which she would've been forced to wear butt-padded underwear. Azmarie was the third American to be ousted from the program, leaving four Yanks and four Brits to battle it out for the crown.
BuddyTV caught up with the outspoken, androgynous castoff to get her thoughts on whether or not she thought she was fairly labeled as "cocky," and also to look back at some of her favorite moments of the cycle. »
With her years of experience in the modeling business, you'd think Tyra Banks would instill some practical knowledge in her "America's Next Top Model" hopefuls.In season's past, she's taught the contestants how to smile with their eyes, or "smize." As silly as the term is, smizing has its uses. We're not sure we can say the same about Wednesday night's lesson.Tyra's newest teach? Say nooch to the dookie tooch!Translation: Don't squat like you're on the can!Contestant AzMarie found the whole lesson (which included wearing butt pads) ridiculous, so she walked out. No one crosses Tyra, so she was eliminated. Check out the clip below and tell us whether you agree with AzMarie. Read more »

On "America's Next Top Model," Azmarie Livingston was eliminated after her refusal to don the butt pad in Tyra's booty tooch teaching seminar. She tells Zap2it that she knew it was coming and she doesn't regret her decision.
Were you surprised you were the one to go?
"No. I knew the minute I told Tyra no, I wasn't gonna wear the butt pad, that I was gonna get sent home, especially when she said you can't participate in the booty tooch session."
The show is pretty infamous for putting the models through some kind of ridiculous stuff. Did you expect that going in?
"I was aware of it. Going in, I knew if there was anything I wasn't comfortable with doing, I had the right to say that I didn't want to do it, even though it could jeopardize me being a part of it. And that was the »
There's something very sexy about a woman who's confident, sure of who she is and willing to stand her ground. Former Pussycat Doll and Jessica Sutta and Nadine Coyle of Girls Aloud joined the judging panel this week on "America's Next Top Model" (Wed., 9 p.m. Et on The CW), overseeing as the girls were put to the task of appearing in a girl group inspired music video.
For choreography, Tyra Banks brought some equipment in to teach the girls how to booty tooch. She compared it to a training bra, only for the tooch. But while all the girls went and put theirs on, AzMarie didn't. When pushed on the issue, she said she quite simply refused to put it on, and so she was banished from the training session.
On the Us team, Kyle was a bit self-conscious, which hurt their performance, but so did AzMarie's defiance at the training session. »

America's Next Top Model 18.06 "Jessica Sutta and Nadine Coyle" Review
Hoochie toochie smoochie bootchie toochie toochie coochie coochie.
Don't worry, everybody, I'm not having a fit or psychotic break from too much Top Model. (That's like saying "too much air", c'mon. No such thing.) I'm just practicing what tooches to do and what tooches not to do, as the Good Lord (and Mama Tyra) intended. You wouldn't want your salad tooch to get mixed up with your dessert tooch and heaven knows, if I mixed up my dinner tooch with my fish tooch, I might not be to show up at the next TV Blogger Luncheon, Fashion Show, and Tooch Off. And we wouldn't want that now, would we?
Y'all, tonight's Top Model was all types of stupid and train wreck-y, but I have to admit...I kind of loved it. I don't know if it's residual good feelings from an improved cycle or what, »

"America's Next Top Model" all-stars winner Lisa D'Amato was back on the CW this week, helping mentor the Cycle 18 girls in their music challenge. She tells Zap2it all about the experience of returning, which girls she thinks are the strongest and what she's been up to since all-stars wrapped.
"I'm very jealous of them because their music challenge has more elements than our music challenge did on all-stars," D'Amato tells us, of the Cycle 18 girls. "We all mentored them in our own fortes. I mentored in the studio and co-wrote songs for them, I wrote their individual parts. It was great fun."
Lisa has never been afraid to speak her mind, so she certainly didn't hesitate to tell us which girls stood out to her this cycle.
America's Next Top Model: British Invasion: Top 9 Power Rankings
Believe it or not, we're already down five girls in the search for America's Next Top Model-slash-Actress-slash-Reality-Footnote. It's been a weird cycle thus far, in that it's an improvement over cycle 17 yet there's still a lot of head scratching decisions being made, both on and off the catwalk. However, the farther we head into Tyra's Black Hole of Fierceness, the more we're seeing that there may be some models with actual potential vying for the title, as opposed to the regular girl realness that was being served at the cycle's beginning. Now that we've had a week with no new episode, it's time to fix your weave, smize with all you've got, and try to figure out who in the world could become the 18th winner of this mess.
Let's start in the bottom three, or the girls that »

One of the main complaints that people (including yours truly) have had about Top Model is that it can feel a little insular. Instead of exposing the girls in each cycle to the realities of the fashion business through actual casting/jobs, realistic photoshoots, and lessons in handling your coins, it can focus too much on being capital-r Reality TV. There are many (legitimate) reasons that no true top model has emerged from the Top Model dungeon, but one of the primary examples of this lies with how little the girls know about what they're getting themselves into upon leaving the show. To be able to beat the fashion machine that has spit many a girl out like juice from a mouthful of chewing tobacco, you have to understand the machine and dressing like Michael Jackson or freely eating a hot dog aren't ways to do it. »

Candace Smith is the latest girl eliminated from "America's Next Top Model." She tells Zap2it that she was pretty surprised she went home and what her favorite challenge was (which was a bit surprising).
Are you glad you did "America's Next Top Model"?
"I'm definitely glad I did this show. It gave me a stepping stone on my modeling career. I don't regret it all.
Were you a little surprised when you were the one who went home?
"Oh, yeah. I was so shocked when I went home. Honestly, it was the beginning of the competition and I felt that I needed more of a chance to prove myself being on the show. It was very surprising to me that I got eliminated early on in the competition."
Do you think the judges should've taken Kyle wanting to go home into consideration more?
"Oh yeah, definitely. I wish they »
In recent cycles of Top Model, the role of runway diva coach extraordinaire (and total friend in my head) Miss J. Alexander has been greatly reduced. I don't know if it's his busy schedule or any internal strife in Modelland, but the show tends to only pull him out for a challenge or two per cycle, with the last couple not even relating to runway. J. always brought a sense of fun and excitement to the show, damn near glistening with personality, and the technical know-how he has about the catwalk has been sorely missed, replaced by...well, Top Model doesn't really do runway anymore.
I mean, aside from their increasingly ridiculous final runways, of course.
Which is why his presence on tonight's Top Model was both fabulous and a little disappointing. Having J. back livened up the challenge, but if you're going to bring Miss J. »
