The new season of America's Next Top Model will include Isis, the show's first transgender contestant. "My cards were dealt differently," Isis, 22, told Us. The aspiring model is from Prince George's County, Maryland, and describes herself as "a woman born physically male." Her historic turn as the show's first transgender contestant, though, isn't why she's getting on the Top Model runway. "I like to help people, but I'm here to follow my dreams," she said.

Wait, Tyra Banks tells aspiring beauties how to look good on America's Next Top Model ?!? Based on the new, crimped out hairstyle on the self-absorbed talk show host, we really hope reality TV contestants ignore her advice. Banks obviously has no clue what she's talking about.

Nikki Blonsky ( Hairspray ) and her father were arrested after an airport brawl with the family of America's Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden. The fight was over saved seats in the airport's lounge. Oh, good. For a minute there, I thought it might be about something stupid. Us Magazine reports: Bianca, 19, her brother George, 17, and their mother Elaine Clinton-Golden, were waiting for a flight to New York when they tried to take a seat in the departure lounge but found luggage on the chairs. When they removed the luggage, which belonged to the Blonsky's, a brawl broke out. Elaine was alleged to have been repeatedly kicked and punched all over her body. She was airlifted for treatment in Miami, Florida. Nikki, 19, was charged with actual bodily harm; her father, Carl, was charged with grievous bodily harm, a source at the Turks and Caicos Weekly News tells Us. In Nikki's defense, the wing buffet in the lounge ran out of ranch dressing which put her under extreme emotional duress. To put things in perspective, at her 13th birthday party Pizza Hut ran out of cheesy bread. There were no survivors. For more from the source, click here .

So you asked, "What's America's Next Top Model Whitney up to?" Well, America's Next Top Model Whitney often makes apperances with both Anya, and Fatima (the bottom three). Whitney seems to be very very busy attending one event after another. The most recent apperance that I am aware of was at the AAFA Image Awards. Visit to view Whitney Thompson, Anya Kop and Fatima Siad's red carpet arrival photo at the AAFA Image Awards.
Whether you agree or disagree that Whitney deserved to win this cycle of America's Next Top Model , you can't argue that she's pretty eloquent and articulate, which is something the ANTM judges love! Check out this interview with TV Guide: Plus-Size Top Model Winner Dishes out Food for Thought I particularly appreciated this statement from her: "One thing that separates me from other plus-size models who have been in earlier cycles is that I'm saying, "I'm not emaciated, I'm not starving myself and yet I'm considered plus-size. Why is that? Why is a healthy size considered too big?" So I have this message that I'm trying to carry with me. It was incredibly difficult, but I kept thinking, "If I don't make it, then who is going to be a role model for my 13-year-old cousin? Who are the first-graders that I teach in elementary school going to look up to? Are they going to be a completely lost generation because all of their role models are in rehab or have eating disorders?" I told myself that failure was not an option and pushed through." Though similar to what she said at the end of the finale, I think she makes a really nice point here (one question though, isn't it "full-figured"). Enjoy.
Spoilers Included Since many of you are so angry (see comments) about Whitney's victory on ANTM last night and think that she was chosen more to make a statement (her being the full-figured girl) than due to merit...well, you may have a case. Fresh from the rumor mill: Whitney was approached by the America's Next Top Model people and told that, around a size 4, she was a little bit too big to be one of the "normal" models, but that should she gain some weight they would absolutely take her as the plus-sized girl. Check out the evidence here and here . If true, this would of course also mean that Whitney's sob stories of being teased for being curvy her entire life are...false, in which case I might have to retract my earlier statements about not being angry that she won. For the record, this will be the second straight season laden with controversy, as it came out last time that Tyra and Saleisha went way back and furthermore Saleisha had previously been involved in a campaign with Wendy's, which technically breaks eligibility rules.

Spoilers Included. Avert your eyes now if you haven't seen the last ANTM episode yet or you will be angry! America's Next Top Model finished its 10th cycle tonight, meaning that another girl was crowned a winner. Who won?? Fatima was knocked out first, leaving Anya and Whitney in the final two. After a strong showing in the final fashion show, Whitney emerged victorious! Personally, I am not upset that Whitney won - I think it is awesome that a "full-figured" girl has finally won the competition (and I thought Whitney's closing words were really honest and moving), but frankly I am a little surprised. I thought Anya undeniably had a way stronger portfolio, even though in the final judging the judges tried to present the two girls as basically having done equal quality work (and some even argued that Whitney had better pictures, despite the fact that she had been in the bottom two about 5 times...often for having weak pictures, yet Anya was never in the bottom). I do agree though that Whitney was stronger in the fashion show. She had a lot of personality, whereas Anya seemed subdued and quite nervous. So..I want to hear your reactions! Do you think the right girl won??
