I guess it's not really their fault all their black women were b*tches, etc. I mean I hear ya, but i guess they're picking from a pile of videos.Originally Posted by DysireeI hated that too. I really could have done without the Tyra video and seeing her lick the mike. Pul-leeze :rolleyes
With Bethany I think it was that she always either stuck out her boobs or pointed them in a way that would get them noticed (it's a mental thing for Bethany and they wanted to get her out of feeling she was only about boobs since they were so big.) Tyra and Janice draw attention to theirs by their clothes not sticking them out. (Janice is a mental case. I'm not sure what she's doing half the time. The Finale party she looked like she was back to posing for Playboy. And how many dern time do I have to see that EXACT same dress on another celebrity!)
I abhored the way the kept calling Janice "The first supermodel" If Tyra didn't announce it Janice would cut her off and shout it. Like she thought, ""If I say it enough it will be true." Janice let it go. There were so many before her, can't think of the name of the one they contibute this too but if no one else Marilyn Monroe was a supermodel WAY before you.
Tyra snotting up before announcing Sara has been eliminated and her whole, "Blah blah blah world judging me blah blah blah" speech.
I hate the first elimination. You have no idea what anyone can really do after one day! Think about Shan-dye. What if she'd been chopped that first day. Anna looked amazing at the party.
Oh and the whole commercial thing... I didn't figure out what that meant until the last episode. Explain yo' self.
I also hate the pics because to me, as a photographer, they suck. There's too much background and not enough model. I've yet to see photos like that in a magazine. You could barely see the girls.
And would someone PLEASE tell Tyra to never NEVER rap again. Girlie you cannot do EVERYthing.
And the stereotypes:
"Black woman hard as stones and just as emotional" :
Ebony was as feeling as a rock and the skin of one.
Robin was emotionally unavailable.
Kesse was the only one they showed depth on.
Camille was just evil and manipulating and she had as much feeling as Adam Sandler's "Mr. Deeds" black foot.
Xiomara is a sweetie but she always had this warrior thing going on and let's not forget the Grace Jones spread. Tyra knew what she was doing.
The Evil or Confused Holier than thou Christians:
Robin was almost an evil Bible-thumper.
Shannon was confused and seemed easily lead. Has anyone checked the Burger King's in her hometown?
And Anna, they tried to paint her as confused by showing her saying it was because of her husband and then saying it was because of her religion. I would love to see the uncut, uneditied version of her dilema and everything she said.
Oh and they also had a ditzy evil blonde thing going this year, can't say much about last year because I got into it a little late.
But the blondes this year were either stupid, portrayed as little sexpots and/or snobby. And why do they keep picking these blonde haired blue-eyed girls then saying, "You look like the girl next door." The blonde-haired blue-eyed girl always plays the girl next door in movies, and/or the surfer chick. What the hell are ya'll thinking? All of the "top models" look like the girl next door, even Cindy Crawford had that going on, and she's not a blonde. And Shannon was a little short of mental capacity in last season.
