Janice Dickinson has reportedly filed for bankruptcy, says the New York Post, claiming that she is almost $1 million in debt. The 58-year-old model allegedly owes $8,000 to her dermatologist, presumably for the many cosmetic procedures she's undergone.
Another Hollywood idiot who can't handle money. No sympahy for assholes like her.
Is there anyone you like r14?
She should just go away and play with her vagina.
But how will she afford to make herself uglier now?
He first book was a damn good juicy read with a lot of insight, or perhaps lies. Hard to tell with her. She was once stunning. Not pretty, none of this Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Coco Rocha crap - Dickinson was gorgeous. Maybe that is all she knew how to be.
Agree that she is mentally ill and has destroyed her face. She could still make it to crazy old broad age. Something is real there....
Maybe it;s the cynic in me, but I don't believe that JD did not exaggerate the level of abuse she suffered at the hands of her father. Her sister, who is lovely, mature and extremely articulate has pretty much confirmed my thoughts in interviews. Janice is a histrionic narcissist, and part of that diagnosis is to be the center of attention in good ways(beauty, achievement in her field) and in victimization too. I have heard her over the years ramp up the Daddy stories with each telling.
She did well in modelling, but her career wasn't even in the same universe as Cindy and Kate.
And as for the self proclaimed "I am the first Supermodel!" rant....it is sad it's so laughable it's sad. Her story as to the genesis of that term concerning booker Monique Pillard at Elite is balderdash. The term was coined years later when the era of models making $30K+ for walking a show was ushered
in. Naomi, Linda, Kate, Christy and Cindy were and are the only Supermodels. All but a few models today make bupkus compared with the late 80's girls.
Gisele is the only model outside that group who could be considered a supermodel.
I went to NY as a 16 year old with a Ford contract when Janice was at the end of her runway career. There were few kind words for her from anyone in the industry.
And by the way, I had plenty of that job in 2 1/2 years. It's unbelievably destructive to the spirit.
You are a pain in the ass swf. I never said that she was as big a model as Cindy or Kate. Only that she was gorgeous and they were merely pretty.
I am not involved in modelling nor am I a heroin addict, but I am in the entertainment business. Dickinson no doubt has several personality disorders, demons and delusions. It is not uncommon is it?
I am a pain in the ass!
To each his own. I found Janice to be unique and interesting looking, but gorgeous? Not even close. Today with the Eastern European look being most sought after, she would have had a stronger career. I think some of her bitterness comes from NOT being what Eileen thought of as gorgeous. At that time John Casablancas was the only top agent repping "different" looking girls.
Things change. Today Cheryl Tiegs and Kim Alexis would not be able to secure representation at a major agency IMHO.
She shouldn't have slapped Brian Kehoe! bet she wants to call him for a loan now
Brian Kehoe---what a looker!
JD needs to commit herself to a sanitarium.
swf, did you know Toni Mooney?
She is just a bit older than I, but I know exactly who she is and what she looked like from seeing a copy of her book at Ford.
Coincidentally, I believe that she lives rather close to where I am now!
This is Toni Braxton bankruptcy.
Spend like a drunk sailor because you are a "STAR" and then cheat all your creditors.
Someone tell us the story again of when she was fucked up on dope and made it to the Hollywood sign to jump off, but she couldn't climb over the fence, allegedly.
I don't know why or from what program, but I remember seeing her star in a rather melodramatic scene in which she flung herself across the steps in front of Versace's gated Miami home ( the spot where he was murdered) crying without tears. I know it was supposed to be real ( as in not apart of scripted show) but it looked so contrived. Maybe it was on the news.
I also watched a clip on YT about Gia Carangi and Janice was in it saying that Gia took her out back and slugged her once. So I guess she wasn't popular with her colleagues.
how ridiculous to claim that janice dickinson
was merely "interesting looking" and not even close to be gorgeous.
janice was stunning in her youth. she and gia
broke the mold. they weren't the bland blonde
archetype models of the time (christie brinkley
cheryl tiegs, etc).
both janice and gia were mental cases but they were extraordinary beauties. they helped change the staid, whitebread definition of female beauty.
i believe janice and her sister were abused by their dad.
Can't believe Sylvester Stallone once left his then gf, Jennifer Flavin, for this mentally ill mess.
If I remember correctly, Dickinson lied about being pregnant.
At the time, even Stallone's nutty mother was speechless.
janice didn't lie about being pregnant.
she lied to stallone that he was the baby's father. a paternity test proved that her daughter's father was not stallone.
i feel sorry for both her son and daughter (from 2 different fathers).
Wow! Janice was beautiful when young. She looked so exotic. What's her ethnicity? She looked like she could have been many different things.
I hope she get's on another reality show where they let her drink and pop pills in the bathroom like they did on Surreal Life. Her head blowed up good on that one. Her head blowed up real good.
Phoebe Cates had the same exotic look.
i just looked it up:
janice's dad was of Belarus decent and her mother
was of Polish decent.
i always thought she was italian or hispanic.
i met janice a few times way back when.
i was shocked at her truck driver voice
i had admired her as a cover girl because of how she changed things for me and my friends who weren't Ford blonds.
i have biracial friends one of whom looks like
a young janice or adriana lima.
the impact of janice and gia cannot be underestimated.
i remember some stories of her drug-fueled, nutty behavior during photo shoots. but, janice didn't seem any crazier or more narcissistic than other models or actresses
whom i encountered in my work.
it's too bad that janice descended into
the reality TV hell of scary, unhinged,
plastic surgery freaks. she became a caricature of herself. there seems to be
many of those women around on both coasts.
Interesting, I kind of thought she could be Italian or Hispanic as well. Also Portuguese, Eurasian, Brazilian, Hawaiian...just many things. I guess that made her popular. I would love to know why Gia slugged her, though. Gia was said to have been nice but also a tough girl who didn't take a lot of crap. So I wonder what Janice did in order for things to get to that point? I can only imagine. In the short clip Janice appeared to have a good sense of humor about it, though.
[R31] Her sister passed a polygraph stating that she wasn't sexually abused by her father. She never called Janice a liar, but I have caught JD in so many lies on the Howard Stern Show alone, if she told me the sky was blue, I'd still look out the window.
I wonder why the stunningly gorgeous Janice always married super fug men? Cheryl and Kim Alexis married certified hunks.
You must be too young to understand she was not thought of as beautiful or stunning in 1982. Just like Lauren Hutton before her, she has admitted that she was not considered beautiful in those days. There were barely any brunettes even working! Today, the criteria has completely reversed.
I had forgotten all about Brian Kehoe... but how did I not know of this supposed scandal of his and where are those nude photos????
i am not too young to understand anything
that happened in 1982. you're obnoxious.
janice had plenty of models who competed with her for gigs, thus plenty of envy and catty remarks.
she was an immature, crazy bitch who caused lots of trouble on shoots.
she was considered beautiful around the world.
her rise to the top along with gia helped many
young girls who up to that point didn't see
any models in magazines who had the same features or darker color of skin or hair.
dr. jeffrey mcdonald passed a lie-detector test, so what?
it is possible that janice is lying about being abused by her dad. it's also possible that
the dad abused janice and not her sister.
this can happen in families.
in watching janice's behavior through the years,
she exhibits all of the signs of someone who has been sexually abused. whether the abuse was by her dad, relative, neighbor or by someone
in the modeling world, i can't say.
I cant find the nude photos of Brian Kehoe either. Surely someone must know where they are.
Janice, I say this with love and affection. I don't give a fat rat's ass about your money problems you haggard ol' strip of greasy leather.
No way JD is broke. This is a scam. Modelling is a billion $ industry and she was the first (only at the time) supermodel - meaning she was raking in hundred million+ per year until the next crop got big. She's NO dummy - stowed it offshore no doubt.
Could not agree with you more r45. swf IS obnoxious and ubiquitous.
Janice Dickinson was a stunning exotic beauty by any standards when she was young. I am very sure she never wanted to look like Cheryl Tiegs. Why would she?
That's a nice pic at R42. She looks Hispanic or even biracial ( as in black and white) in it. She was definitely an exotic beauty and could portray many different backgrounds, but she also has some serious issues. At least she does now that she's older, maybe it's the aging beauty thing.
She looks a little like Jessica Alba in this picture.
Dickinson by Avedon.
She was on the cover of Vogue 37 times and for 7 months in a row was the covergirl of Elle.
Janice is a crazy lying plastic mess, but her accomplishments in that small world of fashion can't be taken away from her.
She also called out Tyra Banks, revealing that Top Model is fixed, and that "Covergirl" cosmetics decide the winner. I believe her.
Sometimes borderline narcissistic personalities speak the truth, as swf should know :)

Oh, honey. You sound even more mentally ill than Janice. It's not a "billion-dollar industry." She reached the peak of her fame 35 years ago. Savings only lasts so long. *Very* few models are able to live for long on their savings, which is why so many of them gravitate towards marrying billionaires who can fund their fancy tastes (yes, Naomi Campbell, I'm looking at you; Gisele, you too, even if Tom is only worth a couple hundred million).
Gia was even bigger, though - I still recall, as a gay man, mind you, getting thrilled at seeing my cousin's fashion magazines, and yep, there's Gia again, just dazzling in whatever she wore, in any and every shot.
JD seemed to be one who tried to strike a balance between what was then known as "ethnic" and the blande, suburban blonde beach bimbo that has always been the literal and figurative 'gold standard' in modeling.
Janice was interesting looking at best. Her face lacked the great bone
Structure of a Kate Moss or a Christy Brinkley.
She was tall with long legs and no hips or breasts when she started out.
She was very mannish looking to me.
Not a great beauty at all. Then add to that her crazy demeanor.
I saw nothing appealing about her at all.
"You are a pain in the ass swf. I never said that she was as big a model as Cindy or Kate. Only that she was gorgeous and they were merely pretty."
Thank You! Who the fuck is this "swf" character who is suddenly all over DL like running diarrhea? She reminds me of Magdalene, a real know-it-all. I think it might be Magdalene using an alias.
Swf, STFU already!
btw, Janice looked a bit like the late Gia Carangi. I worked in what I deem 'the lower echelons of fashion', I was a Creative Director on fashion catalogs at several ad agencies. I retired from fashion, I hated the field, the phonies and the stupidity. I still work in the arts, but no longer deal with the fashionista assholes.
Many of these models started as catalog models, later on, even famous models such as Brooke Shields continued with catalogs by getting involved with pattern company contracts. I now see some formerly famous models doing catalog work, how the mighty have fallen!
I found it more laughable that R49 thinks that any model 30 years ago was pulling in a "hundred million plus" per year.
Janice and Gia.
"Supermodel" was just another example of eightie's excess. Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista were exalted and made big bucks. Were they the best models, I doubt it.
Little to do with who over time was a good model, editorial or runway, and all about when models became household names.
I have no dog in this race. But I appreciate beauty and something more than hype. Fashion is a fickle world and a waste of human energy, but it is sometime nice to look at.
