UPN orders Top Model orgy edits.
The infamous orgy episode of America’s Next Top Model 2 was supposed to air this week, but the episode featuring “eight people making out at the same time kinda in the same vicinity” that Tyra teased on Conan was replaced by a clip show. Now we know why: The segment “contains material that UPN felt was inappropriate for broadcast,” according to a Page Six source. “They asked the producers to edit it down–it exceeded what would’ve been appropriate for broadcast.” Like every single other entertainment-related decision made in the past few weeks, this, too, seems to result from Janet Jackson fall-out, especially since UPN is owned by CBS parent Viacom.
