Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Tyra Banks Confirms Life-Size Sequel in the Works!

Where you live, where you are, BE A STAR! I never imagined this happening, but Tyra Banks has officially confirmed that there is a Life-Size sequel in the works.

Tyra admitted Digital Spy that a sequel is coming soon. “I have a meeting today to go over the script!” she said. “I swear! I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing it could be late 2014 or 2015. but it will be back. Life-Size will be back, better than ever.” She’s under contract not to say anything for now, but claims that the sequel will be “very modern.”

The original film was released back in 2000 and starred Lindsay Lohan as Casey Stuart, a tween who tried to bring her deceased mother back with a magic spell. Instead, she ends up bringing her doll Eve (played by Tyra) to life. It’s a Disney classic…at least to me!

The little kid in me is freaking out over this news. I KNOW I am not the only who remembers and loved this movie! I’m really hoping that Lindsay is apart of this sequel as well. I’ll still watch regardless, but she and Tyra again would be magic! For all the other fans, this is for you.

tyra_banks

Tyra Banks is still looking for the most beautiful women in the world, but this time she is pioneering her reality show with “Africa’s Next Top Model”.

This is the FOURTH branch of Tyra’s franchise that she has expanded and what we do know is that Tyra has snagged up
Nigerian model Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi to serve as the host and co-producer.

In a press release Oluchi said, “The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent.”

Tyra also took to Twitter to share her excitement saying, “Twelve lucky beauties will be selected from eight countries throughout Africa, and like the American version, the ladies will compete in a number of photo shoots and challenges over the course of 10 episodes to see who makes it to the top.”

America’s Next Top Model has aired twenty cycles so far, with other countries hopping aboard the Next Top Model bandwagon including: Brazil, Australia, Austria, China, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Mexico, Norway, Romania and more.

Dominique Reighard: Beauty and The Beat

It seems like everyone is throwing their hat into the music ring. From reality stars to celebutantes, there seems to be no end in sight. Another contender for the treble clef is Dominique Reighard. The model has graced the pages of J’Adore, Ebony, and Seventeen magazines and is the new face of Carol’s Daughter, the cosmetics line that has been endorsed by celebrities such as Mary J. Blige and Jada Pinkett-Smith, to name a few.  Featured on cycle 17 of America’s Next Top Model – All Stars, she is currently working on her album in Los Angeles, where she is pursuing a career as a triple-threat in entertainment. Her first music video, which is a fusion of R&B, dance, and pop, is called “On Top of the World“(feat. McSwagger) and is slated to be released through Famous Records. With one foot firmly placed in the fashion world, the sky is the limit as Dominique sets out to conquer the world of entertainment, one beat at a time.

COUPLE ALERT: Drake and Tyra Banks Spotted at Disneyland Together

Could Drake and Tyra Banks be a thing? Well let’s just say that Drizzy Drake is definitely trying to get it in with Miss Tyra. The two were spotted at Disneyland hanging out and flirting with each other. Not only did they take in the rollercoasters, but they jumped on some kiddie rides as well.

Drake tried to disguise himself with a fake mustache while riding the rollercoaster. Unfortunately it didn’t work out too well for him. Check out his disguise in the photos above.

Drake had admitted that he loves himself a cougar and he definitely could land himself one if Tyra falls for him.

What do you think about these two? Could they make a good couple?

Tyra Fires THREE Top Employees From ANTM!

Let me tell you, people don’t like change so I have some big fat uncertainty about Tyra Banks losing her damn marbles to fire J. Alexander, Nigel Barker and Jay Manuel from America’s Next Top Model. Yes, THAT happened. I suppose she decided if one had to go, then all three should go and that is understandable. Why choose one or two over the others? Simon Cowell did it with American Idol and he’s doing it with X-Factor, so why can’t she? Right?

It has been a successful 18 seasons for ANTM and all three mentors were on board since the beginning, but apparently Tyra wants to shake things up a bit. The three mentors were told yesterday morning that their contracts would not be renewed for the next season. FIRED!

According to the NY Post,

a show insider told us the departures were a “production decision” and that there are “major changes planned for [season] 19.”
We hear producers are looking to add a social media slant to the show, and they’ve already reached out to bloggers and fashion insiders with a strong Web presence, including street-style blogger Bryan Boy.

We revealed last September that Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley, who had been a judge on the show since Season 14, was being replaced by Kelly Cutrone, founder of public relations firm People’s Revolution, on the panel of judges.

We have not heard from the three now former employees, however executive producer Ken Mok said in a statement, “Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander have been an integral part of the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ brand and they helped turn this show into the household name it is today. They have been amazing assets to the show and will always be a part of the ‘Top Model’ family. We will continue to actively work with each of them on future projects.”

I don’t know about you but I think Tyra made a HUGE mistake and I am not even a hardcore ANTM fan! I can’t even imagine what fans are saying!

Tyra Banks and boyfriend John Utendahl split!

Tyra Banks and her boyfriend John Utendahl have broken up. In case you didn’t know the supermodel was swapping spit and whatever else with Mr. Utendahl for THREE years. But it appears as if long time love wasn’t in the cards for these two. Good news for men worldwide as their chances of hooking up with hottie Banks just became a possibility. Unfortunately Banks is probably not the kind of girl who will just randomly hook up. Girlfriend is going to be on the mend from this split for more than a hot minute.

In fact, rumors are saying that Banks took herself on a “spiritual” trip
