Word on the street is that Miz Tyra Banks is getting a little tired of baby-sitting 18-year-old drama queens from Middle America all day, and she wants to ditch her post on America’s Next Top Model to focus her energies on her talk show.
She’s also reportedly feuding with Jay Manuel.
â€œItâ€™s gotten so bad that Tyra and Jay arenâ€™t speaking,â€ says an insider. Um … doesn’t Tyra Banks executive produce Top Model? And doesn’t Jay Manuel not executive produce Top Model? It seems that if they were feuding, Tyra wouldn’t be the one to go. I call bullshit on this part of the story.
Continues the source: â€œTyra barely interacts with the contestants and only wants to show up on judging day.”
Dude, can you blame her? Do you want to interact with the contestants of America’s Next Top Model? I mean, except for in a sex way? It’s become painfully, almost comically, clear over the years that this show is a farce when it comes to producing actual top models. The most famous of the show’s graduates is Adrienne Curry, who went on to the fame and success of marrying a Brady and scoring a spot on not one but two additional reality TV shows. If I were Tyra, I, too, would be a little bored of trying to keep a straight face while teaching these girls how to tilt their chins just so, a skill which will certainly come in handy when they return to their jobs at the K-Mart in Tuscaloosa.
Says another source: â€œSheâ€™s really throwing all her weight behind her talk show. Sheâ€™s putting lots of pressure on her staff to keep her show on the map. She had Barack Obama on, she had Hilary Clinton on â€” she got a taste of playing with the big boys and now â€˜Top Modelâ€™ seems to detract from her big plans.â€
Tyra had no comment on the story. She’s ignoring the whole thing, hoping that this little 10-cycle career misstep doesn’t interfere with her plans to moderate the 2012 Presidential debates.

The all-girl group stirred up some trouble during their recent performance in Malaysia.
Not only did one of the girls pop out of her vest, another gave photogs a look at her, um, actual pussy in her skimpy shorts.
The company who promoted the performance has been fined by officials in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, for condoning such a lewd performance. The fines total just over $3,000 in U.S. dollars. So, like, either the dollar carries a ton of value in Malaysia or these officials weren’t actually all that upset. I’m guessing it’s the former. Either way: I’m proud to live in America, the land of the free and the home of the crotch shots.
The uncensored photo of the nip slip is after the jump. I haven’t tracked down the uncensored version of the crotch shot yet, but if and when I find it, believe me when I say that you will see it. Because if there’s one thing we do well here at Evil Beet, it’s trafficking in pornography.

Remember how we were talking about how The Office might manage to work Angela Kinsey’s pregnancy into the show?
They won’t be, it turns out.
They’ll be hiding her behind copiers and other such office equipment.
Greg Daniels, the show’s head writer, suggests that “it’s going to be a good drinking game to see how many times” Kinsey appears with her midsection hidden.
Get on that one, kids!

Hey guys, look, it’s Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo! Leaving an uneventful dinner! In a car! Sober!
But this is a fun picture because Vanessa looks like she’s crying and Nick’s giving the camera a look like “Yeah, I just put that ho in her place.”
In actuality, if you look at all of the photos, it’s clear that V just has something in her eye and they caught Nick at a bad angle, but, still.
This is how gossip is born.

Here’s Ashley Tisdale at the AJ McLean (yes, the former Backstreet Boy) show in Anaheim.
What the hell was she doing there?
And here’s what I find the funniest: there are 101 photos of AJ McLean from this event. Literally. There is one photograph of Ashley Tisdale. This is the sole photo of Ashley from this event. Yet, how does the photo agency advertise this particular set of photos? With the single photo of Ashley Tisdale, of course. “Look! We have a photo of Ashley Tisdale! Check this out! Oh, and here’s another hundred photos of AJ McLean.”
For what it’s worth, I like AJ. I think he’s a good guy and I wish him all the best.
