“Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency” on Oxygen

I used to love this fucking show. I made sure to watch it every week. Janice was a fucking loon and psychotic but boy is she entertaining.

There were so many gorgeous men in her agency, I always wonder what happened to them. Brian and JP were her two most popular guys, JP mostly for coming out on the show.

I remember this one photo shoot a few of her guys were picked for where they had to have their asses out. It was a gay shoot. Back when that network showed bare ass.

I wish Janice didn’t fuck it up and it got canceled. A fun show.

I remember what a cunt Janice was to Fargo. At the beginning of the show Janice had a partner and they could never get along and disagreed with everything. He wanted Fargo signed, she didn’t because her look is too commercial and she only wants high end runway types, no commercial or lingerie/nude models. He kept telling her we need commercial models too to pay the bills and keep the agency afloat.

He was right.

She did come forward later that she made up the Cosby allegations. But I assumed that she was bribed to do that. She was part of that famous New York Times' cover and the feature.

The show was so wonderfully trashy. Like when that Aussibum owner set Janice up on her own show (showing some clip where Janice badmouthed him) and then making a big drama exit taking his ad business elsewhere and Kehoe seizes to moment hogging the camera to uplift Janice by giving some big speech (we don't need him!) and then sitting down on a cake for the PR event.

The ending was so sad and depressing. Janice having this big temper tantrum refusing to hire big sized models and her getting a lawyer involved to push out her business partner (who was clearly bankrolling the whole thing).

by Anonymousreply 30July 4, 2021 2:06 AM

Where is that red headed girl model who’s stage mom insisted she was going to Paris at the convention, and Janice became furious and exclaimed “You DON’T go to Paris for MONEY, you go there to build your BOOK!

And then she wanted another model to get a nose job, which I found ironic considering how Eileen Ford did the same type of thing and criticized Janice’s looks. The model to be whined she was homeless, and Janice said she had been.

Then she screamed at the models for not using Dermablend on pimples, and boasted about how she was always ready.

The gay mafia.

That’s about all I can remember.

And the billboard sign she showed the models after they trudged around in the cold in their skivvies.

The partner sued her for pushing him out I believe. They were in a lawsuit war.

Why is that interesting. Tyra’s career peaked in the 1990s, the height of the super model big money golden age. Janice’s career was over well before the 90s. Janice is a self proclaimed “super model.” I believe she even claims to have coined the phrase “super model.” She however was never rich and successful like those 90s girls. She’s full of shit and batshit crazy. Which is why she made good tv.

There were models from the 60s-80s who became rich.

Also all her years on reality TV etc. she should have not let her ego get in the way and stayed on ANTM. If she put her ego aside she may have had a top agency for models, but her ego let it all fall apart.

Janice is a mess but she was at least once a very beautiful and successful model. Not like that Dog_Faced bullfrog Gia Garageme. Gia is only known for the way she died. Janice is living her truth and making her way in life. She has grown kids who love her. Ex husband who doesn't bad mouth her. And unlike Tyra, Janice is remembered fondly by the top model contestants and other judges. She's not a total failure. And she was GORGEOUS. Disciplined and beautiful. There's a lot of trauma there, but she's not a toxic narcissist like Tyra or a heroine addicted thug like that ugly Gia chick.

THEN AND NOW: 13 iconic supermodels from the '80s and '90s and what they look like today

For the last two decades of the 20th century, a group of women (none of whom is named Janice Dickinson) essentially controlled the fashion industry. Their presence could make or break a runway show, and their exploits were plastered across tabloids.

From Cindy Crawford to Tyra Banks, these 13 women were inescapable for the better part of the '80s and '90s — and we loved them for it.

Truth is that Janice was not the first and not famous in the way that later "super" models were. But she is always listed in the top ten of actual supermodels. Because she was unique and exotic and an excellent and intriguing model. She excelled at everything. That's print work, PRESTIGE covers, the world's most important runway shows of the biggest designers, she was photographed by Avedon and Penn and Mike Reinhart and all the others and she scored some beauty campaigns.

by Anonymousreply 84July 4, 2021 4:29 PM

Tyra picked TV spokesmodels and future soap actresses to win Top Model. None of the winners went on to have great modelling careers. But many of the girls that other judges championed did. The first thing they had to do was throw out their "book" or portfolio from ANTM. In fact the show has a terrible track record. Janice played the show for real. She wanted real models to win. She didn't tell girls to fill in their gap or widen their gap. She didn't say natural black hair was ghetto. She didn't call fat girls "fiercely real." She didn't pick anorexic autistic winners either. Janice played the show for real. She knew what a model should be and can be. All of her choices had more successful careers than any of Tyra's winners.

Most of the contestants themselves have revealed how if you didn't keep up the drama in the house - you were gone, no matter your "potential." Tyra just chose a purposely bad photo that week and that was it. Some of their plane tickets home were booked in advance and in order of elimination. Tyra jiggle Banks and Ken Mok are LOATHED far more than Janice Dickinson. Janice kept it real back then. And she kept it together for a while longer too.

This is for r96. Have you seen Oliver's interviews? He's talked to over 90 of the Top Model girls by now. And Nigel and Nole too. A lot of tea has been spilled! Some of his interviews gossip for hours. He's very gay and very good at this. The ladies spill it. This interview is kind of sedate but wait for the Yohanna shade and then, guess what- She pops IN!

Season Two for sure had the most traditionally "beautiful" top 4. Mercedes, Yohanna, April and Shandi. And yes, Janice did want Mercedes to win. Didn't we all? Janice said that Mercedes reminded her of Gia Carangi and 19 years later - she still does. Exotic and lovely and ethnically interesting. Yoanna was no doubt a beautiful face, but Janice was right about that B O D Y. Turns out Yohanna is as uptight, religious and botoxed as one expects. A television hostess, but not a model.

April was gorgeous in a bit too symmetrical and mathematical way. Nigel had the hots for her in a way that would have him cancelled now. Ha. Tyra said - you just want that ASS. And Nigel said......yes.

Remember the nude shot that Mercedes and April did? It was like a beautiful Gauguin. But Tyra declared it not HIGH FASHION and bye bye April.

Anyway, if you're interested in some of these interviews - you must watch his one on one with SHANDI, R96. She's delightful, hysterical, a true oddball and she HATES Tyra. Not all the alumni had a bad experience of course and some seem more damaged than others. But Oliver unintentionally brought Tyra mean ass Banks to light over the course of the pandemic with these chats. Because most of the contestants have not much good to say about her. And some, much worse.

Sorry for the derailment, but Oliver's interviews ANTM deserve their own thread. Some of the accusations are pretty shocking and some these girls are NUTS. He pretty much got to most of them. He's a very skilled interviewer in his chatty girlfriend kind of way. The girls spill.

Watch Eugenia's interview too. She's so gorgeous now and very fun and wised up.

Tyra Banks was never a model on the level of Janice Dickinson. Not for a moment. A Sports Illustrated cover? Come on. Tyra had a pushy mother, big ass, no calves and her first nose job before she was 18. She was not even 30 years old when she started Top Model and her fashion career was already over. She modelled bras.

R111 you can keep telling yourself that, but she wasn’t a Sports Illustrated model until mid 90s. She started modeling in the late 80s as a teen and was walking almost every major designers runway in the early 90s. You all love to tear her down but she was the real deal and worked her way to the top, and unlike Janice, is respected in the industry. Janice Is a joke

Tyra did runway, high fashion, commercial and even lingerie and … Sports Illustrated, which made her a household name.

The beautiful Danielle managed to win and succeed AFTER top model. But not before being forced to close the gap in her front teeth by Tyra and producers. She refused the first time and then was told she would be eliminated if she didn't. So she went back and let the cosmetic dentist do his thing.

Two seasons later, Tyra had a white girl contestant have a gap cut OUT of her front teeth as part of her "makeover."

Tyra Banks is most likely a sociopath. She sure wasn't much of a model. She was thin for about 2 years. That fucking HUGE forehead and no legs on the girl at all. She had a good walk at a time when looking ridiculous was in vogue. She calls herself a drag queen and that's about right. She has a mirror. She certainly wasn't beautiful. Not without a ton of work and makeup.

Naomi Campbell still does print work and walks the occasional runway. She's a legend. A model. From head to toe. Better to be a sketchy humanitarian than Tyra Banks who walked over hundreds of lives with no feeling at all. Oprah embraced Tyra at the start, but saw who she really was soon enough. A ruthless climber with little talent.

Tyra was a straight guy's jerk off model. The light eyed, bad tiny nose job, light skinned black girl with huge natural tits. She was never a high fashion model - except when Naomi was sick or said no.

Find one Tyra beauty cover. She did some. But she's homely as fuck.

Hate Janice all you want, but no believes that Tyra Banks was anything more than a jiggle girl with a stage mother. Tyra and Heidi Klum and all the girls after them. They were swimsuit chicks who did some runways. Mostly televised. For Sports Illustrated or Vicky's Secret. Tyra Banks is quite homely to be honest. Giselle and Heidi and Alessandra are naturally pretty women with drop dead gorgeous bodies. Tyra is tits and makeup. A drag queen model.

Janice Dickinson is on every serious list of the top ten supermodels of all time.

See the Eugena interview upthread, R121 and maybe you'll understand better just how mean that fat hipped "fiercely real" bitch Tyra Banks was from the start. She's nuts. Her mommy told her she was special. She's never was. But they were so convinced that she bought one of the worst nosejobs of all time. Because Tyra was so real? Nah. She was desperate and homely and not fierce enough to make it work. So she had surgery. The kind that black girl should think four times about. If Naomi spit on her, I don't blame her. Tyra Banks wasn't nothing as a model. And her "rivalry" with Naomi was completely one sided. Because why would Naomi Campbell ever need to know who Tyra Banks is? She still doesn't.

Tyra is a naturally unattractive human being. She had good tits 20 years ago. The end.

It's that special guy who loves Jessica Lange and Gia Garageme who is trolling this thread. He hates Janice Dickinson because she was beautiful and an actual supermodel. The old dude is at least 70.

Weird fixations.

The rest of us grew up watching Top Model and are in our late thirties or early 40's. We get Janice. Tyra put on a show - that we all grew up on. But no one believed that Tyra was a top model. We have eyes.

Look at the Janice Dickinson photos posted on this thread. She was a true beauty and a REAL model. As important as Tyra knows how to model, but she was too homely and malformed to ever become one of the greats.

And she had her first nosejob very young. And a very bad nosejob it was. 30 years ago when it wasn't necessary. But in her case it was.

See IMAN. A goddess. She didn't know until people told her so. But we all have eyes and can see. Tyra told herself that she was something. She's just a chick from L.A. who wanted to be white. That fake speaking voice and whispery caring. She's a known viper in every form of the business. Ok. So she's like a man. But she destroyed confidence and contaminated a lot of vulnerable young girls in the process. Sociopath.

No amount of concealer or makeup or the Scavullo studio magic could make her look attractive. She was 22 years old. The end.

Cindy Crawford was stunningly beautiful compared to Gia. They called her baby Gia because of her coloring and natural look. But they didn't call her that for long. Cindy Crawford became a legend. Gia is a sad footnote.

Janice was a star fucker not a supermodel - what she did to Stallone was unforgivable. Unfortunately some mistook her for a successful model because Avedon worked with her (he did what the pimp of hers paid for). For two or three years in the late 1970s she was popular in the US.

But Janice never had the aura of a supermodel: ask people who worked in the fashion industry then (if still alive) and it's Lauren Hutton only who was globally known as a supermodel. Even DL-fave Shelley Hack had more model jobs around the world than Janice and as already pointed out before Hutton there were Suzy Parker, Jean Shrimpton, Veruschka (von Lehndorff), and Twiggy.

Janice wasn't the first of anything she claims: Beverly Johnson was the first model to accuse Cosby of rape. But Janice may have been the first model who completely ruined her face with plastic surgeries. However as with Lara Flynn Boyle you now see more of the real bitch that she is.

Reality show participants are not victims and everyone knows reality shows are not real. Janice’s models are not victims and neither are the ANTM contestants. It’s like claiming to be a victim because American Idol didn’t make you a pop super star or Project Runway didn’t turn you into super star designer. Reality tv is not how stars are made. It will potentially get you exposure, that you wouldn’t have gotten. However, chances are slim that you will become a superstar and you are agreeing to participate in the producer driven storylines.

Again despite Janice’s great career, she was not a household name. As far as trashy goes. She was a drunken drugged up mess, fucking everything that moved. Which no doubt overshadowed her great career. Her television career consist of her being an over the top psycho mess.

[quote] At least Janice was beautiful and had some fun. She took being a model seriously and worked hard to maintain herself and career. Worked with the very best and was the very best.

You got this all right except for one model. Janice had the potential for a very short period 77'-78' and then it slowed down before a complete crash after her first surgeries in the 1980s. But I give her that: between 1977-83 Janice's career is comparable to those of Heidi, Tyra and Giselle. Some good print work.

[quote]Of course Lauren Hutton, Evangelista, Twiggy, Iman, Kate Moss, Naomi and Cindy Crawford are Supermodels too. JANICE is among this top ten on every list. Sometimes with Cocha Rocha and Beverly Johnson and Suzy Parker too. Maybe Claudia Schiffer. That Inez chick. But never Gia or Tyra? No. They don't have the credentials or the career achievements.

Excuse me? Tyra Banks was a Supermodel. People can hate her all they want but she was.

Booking 25 shows in 1991 cemented her as one, which was more than anyone had in history at that time. Competing for jobs with Naomi Campbell as the "other" black Supermodel of that period made her one and that's also how their "rivalry" started.

If you were to ask any normal person outside of Datalounge (Where this and yes even the Gia thing keep coming up) they would put Tyra right up there with The Big 5.

But I will give that was partial because she was the other black girl that wasn't Alek Wek but she was much more popular than her even before her TV career.

[quote]But they didn't left lasting images on the catwalk, hadn't any impact on designers and were no one's muses. (

Kimora Lee Simmons was Karl Lagerfeld's muse at Chanel but most people wouldn't call her a Supermodel.

There was no rivalry between Tryhard Banks and Naomi Campbell. Naomi doesn't know Tyra. Why would she?

Pat Cleveland is the great runway model of then and now and then. Who is Black. Beverly Johnson and Iman are the ones the public knows. Naomi admires them all. Naomi is LEGEND. No one got excited by Tyra's lil jiggle gig. She was a lightweight and light skinned girl from the start. Nothing Black about her.

Naomi is a goddess to Black and white women. Watch her. Tyra was a chick from Compton. Except that's just another lie that she tells. She was never super in any way. Tyra's a Drag Queen who sells SMIZE ice cream. Fiercely Fake.

R201 Lagerfeld had a few muses but I think between Baptiste, Brad, Tatjana, Claudia or Nadja only Claudia deserves the title supermodel. My point though wasn't they had to be a muse, it is a combination of the elements I've cited. Sadly the term supermodel is overused since it first came up when local newspapers used it for every little catalog model the poor writer wanted to flatter.

R202 there very much was a rivalry, created by the industry. Tyra became a supermodel in 1991, booking 25 shows back to back. She was a HIGH FASHION runway model before anything else.

R190 I'm the Tori Amos troll. Leave me out of this lame debate about who was called a supermodel first. It's utter semantics, and whomever was called "supermodel" the first time had nothing to do with thr label being assigned to her, anyway. Pure silliness that this has gone on for so long. Janice Dickinson was brilliant by accident or by design for making this claim because people are never going to shut up about it and therefore will keep talking about her, which is all she wants. She was pretty, lots of women are pretty, and if that's the only talent they can offer the world, then have a look and move on.

^ Exactly how I feel about Tori Amos's "singing." You've heard her sing one song - you now know all she can do. She also mutilates some great songs by better artists and bands. Have a quick listen and move on. The world did.

Janice Dickinson is better known than Tori Amos. World's First Supermodel.

Stop comparing Tyra to Janice and Iman. Tyra is not their peer, she came much later. She was peers with Naomi, Cindy, Claudia, Linda, Christie etc.

R215 where are you watching it. I loved that show and was sad it got canned after season 2. Season 2 was much better than season 1, which was a bore.

In birth years only. Tyra does not belong in that group either. She was a tits model. She doesn't belong in the same sentence as any of them.

I CONTRASTED her to Iman, Janice, Naomi, Linda, Lil Kate Moss, Cindy, Lauren Hutton, Twiggy and Coco Rocha because THOSE women ARE supermodels. For all time.

Tyra Banks is a businesswoman, who had a brief career as a model.

R218 I paid for both seasons on YouTube. I think each season costs $9.99 for standard definition, and $19.99 for high definition. I also agree that season 2 was the better season.

[quote] R219, is desperate to rewrite history

It's really rather sad.

These conversations always go the same way on here.

XYZ was a Supermodel.

No, she wasn't. I think this person and this person and this person were but not THAT PERSON because of (some random qualifications I just made up).

Someone with sense will chime in that, "The media gave them those titles!"

Then of course that same someone from before will reappear and say something like, WELL THEY DID THAT TO EVERYONE! Not knowing that this line of thinking actually hurts their cause or that no, no they did NOT call everyone a supermodel.

There are clear facts you can pull and financial figures you can look at from that time period. Unless you were writing for Vogue at the time, nothing anyone says really matters in relation to past discussion about it. Naomi, Claudia, Heidi, Iman and yes Tyra were all considered supermodels not just by the general print media, not just by the public, but the actual fashion experts that wrote about them and the designers they worked with.

[quote]Tyra tried to psyche out and victimize Heidi Klum and Project Runway too!

And yet, they never stopped being friends that have appeared together and smized a bit too much over the years to have actually ever genuinely hated one another over whatever happened in relation to Bank's thoughts on the show. A lot of people thought the show about designers wouldn't do well. It was the first of its kind. They didn't account for their personalities. That and the outfits are why it endured so long.

R222 is INSANE! And loves CAPS! And we all KNOW who that IS!!! La LOON!

Neither Heidi or Tyra are supermodels. They made lots of money in TV and were once popular in lingerie.

Janice Dickinson and the others mentioned here are the real supermodels. As for Vogue, like Bazaar, Elle and WWD - it has its own list of all time supermodels. Tyra titty Banks is not on it. Heidi Klum would never even be considered. Does Tyra have 37 Vogue covers? (one)

R222 is NUTS and hates the gorgeous JANICE DICKINSON! He can scream like an old woman who needs her diaper changed - because he does. But it won't rewrite history.
