'Top Model': Tyra Banks under attack from Janice Dickinson

Posted on

Britney SpearsIn the wake of Wednesday’s controversial America’s Next Top Model finale, who better to turn to than alienated former judge Janice Dickinson? The brassy brunette claimed in an interview uploaded this week that Top Model‘s judges don’t have the ultimate say in who takes home the title. “Cover Girl are the people that choose the model — not any of the judges, not what Tyra says,” she said, adding later, “Definitely… it’s rigged.”

Dickinson said she didn’t realized she was “being conned” and thought she “was actually helping judge a TV franchise, that actually my say had any input — but it really didn’t…. I was depressed sitting there knowing that.” She insisted, “When I found out, I split.” As for Banks herself, Dickinson said, “There’s back history… in the way she treated me.” She blasted the model-turned-mogul for capitalizing on the public impression that professionals (not advertisers) choose Top Model‘s winners and issued this parting shot to Banks: “Eat a bag of royal skank!” Watch Dickinson’s diatribe in the NSFW video below. UPDATE: The CW has responded, calling Dickinson’s allegations “completely untrue.”

What do you think, PopWatchers? Do you believe Dickinson’s accusations? Are you on Team Tyra? Or are you obsessed with the pretty ladies’ feud and hoping that Janice will keep blabbing so that it will never end? Is “eat a bag of royal skank” the greatest insult ever?
