Adrianne Curry says Top Model producers had “no clue what they were doing”

Inspired by Jennifer Hudson’s criticism of American Idol, America’s first Top Model, Adrianne Curry, is once again openly criticizing the show and its host. (Two years ago, she said she was “screwed over” by Tyra.)

First, about the show itself, Adrianne writes on her MySpace blog that its producers “had no money…no clue what they were doing…all they had was mind fucking us for good tv. Hardly sleeping, meals taking FOREVER to come, shoving us in rooms that aren’t big enough for one person, let alone 4!!!”

She also reiterates that Tyra “lied to me, I lashed back with dumb shit talking…we don’t like each other. I am grateful for all I did get from being on top model, and winning…BUT, I am not grateful for being lied to.” She says her “promised HUGE Revlon campaign turned out to be convention work for a day [...] Revlon had informed me that they had never intended on using the winner for ANY kind of ads. Also, I STILL haven’t got paid for the work that I did for them! OVER 3 YEARS LATER!”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
