The former ANTM judge and owner of the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency weighs in on the "skinny model" debate:
"I'm dying to find kids who are too thin. I've got 42 models in my agency and I'm trying to get them to lose weight. In fact, I wish they'd come down with some anorexia." When you laugh at such politically incorrect statements, Dickinson yells back, "I'm not kidding. I'm running into a bunch of fat-assed, lazy little bitches who don't know how to do the stairs or get their butts into the gym ... Models are supposed to be thin. They're not supposed to eat. In fact, I'm not going to eat for the rest of the day because we had this conversation."As awful as it is, I often agree with Janice, and I'm glad they still make folks like her. I know, I know. I'm a horrible person, and I've come to terms with that, but has anyone else noticed that bigger models just don't carry the clothes as well as the ultra-skinny ones? And I'm not talking plus-size models, I'm talking girls with, like, a BMI of 20. It just doesn't look as hot as some BMI 17 chick waltzing down the catwalk. There's a reason models are ridiculously thin! It looks glamorous and unattainable and otherworldly! It makes you want to buy the clothes! I don't think ultra-thin is very sexy off the catwalk, but anyone who thinks an average normal-weight girl is going to sell a dress as well as a super-skinny girl is just fucking wrong. Sorry.
In closing, here's a very funny sign someone posted in front of CBS Studios (where Tyra Banks films her talk show). Let the hate mail roll in. Because if there's anything I've learned, it's that if anyone has more rabid fans than Justin Guarini, it's Tyra.
