Several media outlets are reporting that Tyra Banks has fired three longstanding judges from America’s Next Top Model.
If you’re a fan of “Gossip Girl” or “America’s Next Top Model,” you’ll have the chance to interact with some of your fave cast members next week via Twitter.
The CW Network has set up a really cool “watch and tweet” initiative with stars and executive producers of their shows.
On Tuesday, May 3, 2010, “Gossip Girl” executive producer Josh Schwartz and Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota) will tweet from 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET.
Two days later, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker from “America’s Next Top Model” will tweet from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET. According to a CW release, a surprise guest will tweet from 8:45-9:00 p.m. ET. Can’t wait to see who it is!
To join in on the watch-and-tweet fun, follow The CW Network on Twitter (@CW_Network).
Yet again, I’m reminded why I’m so in love with Nigel Barker!
Late last week, the totally charming ANTM judge and prominent photographer/filmmaker, premiered his newest socially-conscious documentary film, Generation Free.
The film about the global fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS got its first showing at the Sony Screening Room before a gathering of elebs and supporters, including Jay Manuel.
In summary, the film is “a moving representation” of Barker’s time in Tanzania with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, for which he serves as a Celebrity Ambassador.
Check out the documentary here.
Cycle 13 of ANTM premieres September 9 from 8-10 p.m. on The CW.
And for the entire season, each week will feature a member of the fashion community serving on the panel of judges with Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker and J. Alexander.
You may recall from past blog posts that, for the first time ever, the show features a crop of fourteen girls with one thing in common: they are all 5’7″ and under, well below the industry standard.
The guest judges include:
LAUREN CONRAD is a television personality best known for “The Hills,” and debuts the LC Lauren Conrad fashion line this fall. Episode airs September 16.
KIM KARDASHIAN is a television personality who started her career as a fashion stylist. With her sisters, she opened a designer clothing store, DASH, in Los Angeles and Miami. She also has an online shoe company and will soon launch her own fragrance.
CHANEL IMAN one of the world’s most in-demand models, having walked in runway shows for Dolce & Gabana and Valentino. Episode airs September 9.
