The girls of America’s Next Top Model learn so much in their time under Tyra Banks’ watchful eye – how to pose, walk on a runway and smile with their eyes, for example. But now we can add “total destruction of property” to the list of top model requirements! Yes, Tyra’s girls are already acting like divas, after they apparently wrecked the $6 million loft that served as their Big Apple home during the taping of the popular show. An insider revealed that, “These girls not only destroyed the floors, it appears they had food fights. There’s ketchup and coffee splattered all over the landlord’s $20,000 white drapes. There’s lipstick on the walls. They moved in furniture and made holes all along the walls.”
Classsssssy. The production crew didn’t help the mess either, and they apparently destroyed floors and walls while trying to rig lighting. Now the landlord is supposedly freaking out with $500,000 worth of damage and no one to live in the loft. Tyra’s peeps reportedly tried to settle for $125,000, but the owner ain’t having that ish. Now that’s fierce! [NYP]
They gave us “Thriller.” They gave us “Haruhi.” And now those Philippine detention dudes in the orange jump suits are rocking the hits by two revered one-hit wonders, Soulja Boy and MC Hammer. Break it down, y’all…
What tune should they choreograph next?
In unbelievable news for anyone who’s ever asked for early-warning fraud protection on their credit cards, identity thieves managed to steal Kurt Cobain‘s social security number and have purchased a $3.2 million New Jersey mansion in his name. The trouble is that Cobain has been dead since 1994, and even when he was alive, he wasn’t the biggest fan of buying stuff. According to Courtney Love, the criminals have also registered 188 credit cards in her name, and have made off with around $69 million from the couple and their daughter’s trust fund. Love writes on her MySpace page: “I find this whole thing so offensive because until Kurts social security number was checked noone took it seriously, but hey here is the Experian with 188 visas on it, thats not Bi Polar, that is reality .” We’re on Love’s side here, and are a little shocked that the use of Cobain’s name didn’t raise any red flags over at the credit reporting agencies. Maybe they were sleeping on the job? Maybe they were just asleep? That would help explain how Janis Joplin recently purchased a chain of fried chicken restaurants, and that Jimi Hendrix-owned cruise-line we keep hearing about.
In case last week’s announcement of New York Goes to Hollywood confused you (it stated that, “New York has to put her last conquest, Tailor Made, on the backburner as she tries to take on Tinsel Town”), New York’s man has told People.com that he and the reality diva are still going strong:
Tiffany and I are very happy together. We will make this work…I have so much respect for Tiffany and support her career. She is very talented and has a great future as an actress.
He adds, “I’ll visit her as much as I can.” At least we’ll get to watch, and see if their romance can continue to play out via cameos. [TV Watch/People]
It’s not like the whole world didn’t see this one coming even way before their opulent wedding, but it’s still fun to wallow in their failed marriage now that it might actually be falling apart! Former View co-host Star Jones and her hubby of three years, Al Reynolds, are on the verge of calling it quits, after Al apparently wasn’t pulling his weight in their relationship. Star is ready to drop the D bomb, a source says, because, “…Star felt Al had spent their marriage riding her success while she did all the heavy lifting. She resented it. Deep down, Star is a very old-fashioned woman who believes a man should support her emotionally, physically and financially. She now believes Al failed her.”
Al has already allegedly moved out of the couple’s NYC apartment and is chillin’ in Miami, where he has supposedly already been spending plenty of time. Star, on the other hand, has had a lot of free time on her hands since her last televised venture on truTV was canceled earlier this winter. Seems like the perfect time for the diva to find herself a new man! Afterall, a girl can never have too many ridiculous weddings under her belt. [MSNBC]
Let’s assume that Mariah Carey doesn’t answer the doorbell wearing nothing but thigh-highs, panties, and push-up bra. Let’s also assume that the mansion in the singer’s new “Touch My Body” video isn’t her own. Some things are simply concocted for entertainment purposes, right? So where does Mariah really live? What does Mimi’s crib actually look like? Architectural Digest got to the bottom of that question. Its latest issue features a photo spread of Carey’s NYC triplex. Here are some shots of the place. Let’s assume that Glitter is rarely shown in the screening room, and don’t cry when you realize there are no pics of the white piano once owned by Marilyn Monroe.
