They believe plus-sized models are great for plus-sized catalogs, runway shows, etc., but don't ask the premier high-fashion designers to start adding plus-sized garments to their Fashion Week shows, because it's just not on their radar. It's unfortunate, but true.

    And frankly, the loudmouthed leader of the models that came into the house turned me off her "cause". Janice is running a business, not a political lobby. And whatshername wasn't doing herself any favors with her constant soapboxing and pushy attitude.

    Janice took the step of letting Nathan try his experiment, but agreeing to have the models live together was strictly to spice up the TV show. If they hadn't taken that extra (bad) step, perhaps Janice wouldn't have been so quick to shut it down. In reality, it's a side industry, and if anyone in the biz wants to attempt to blend the two types of models together, they have to do it with more grace and tact, and definitely not with reality TV cameras in their faces.

    Again, I'm not agreeing with or defending the bias, but Janice isn't some monster aberration by her behavior. She's just not willing to move ahead of the industry on this issue.

    But don't get me wrong, she's still a whackjob for plenty of other reasons.

    Totally agree with your statements. And while I disagree with some of Janice's positions, I applaud her for not just saying what the client (and perhaps viewers) wanted to hear to make money. She shouldn't put her name on something she does not believe in--and even if she isn't exactly tactful about it--at least she's not fake and is telling us exactly as she feels. Obviously, there are better ways to go about this but at least there is one portion of 'reality tv' that isnt edited!

    She is on Christina's Court right now, being sued by a former show contestant (Kehoe) for defamation of character. He said his career has hurt because she called him an alcoholic.

    Re: The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency

    I guess this originaliy aired in November '08. From Christina's MySpace.
    MySpace.com Blogs - Court Soup: Janice Dickinson Sued; Airs November 3rd - Cristina Perez MySpace Blog
    She claims she put the "super" in the word supermodel, and she
    still knows how to bring a courtroom to a hushed silence.

    Janice Dickinson was less than a minute into her case when her
    confession brought the proceedings to a standstill.

    "I became an alcoholic because of unresolved issues from my
    childhood," said the 53-year-old reality star.

    "My dad was a bad guy. He was a pedophile. He used to make my older
    sister have sex with him. I held this secret for 16 years."

    Dickinson told the story of her addiction in TV's Cristina's Court
    where she was sued for defamation by a male model from the Janice
    Dickinson Modeling Agency.

    Model Brian Kehoe,22, claimed Dickinson had taken perceptions from
    her reality show -- that he was an alcoholic -- too far and it was
    damaging his name in his industry. Dickinson kicked Kehoe off her show
    this season after he suggested another cast member take cocaine to lose
    weight.

    "I said pack your bags and get out of my house," Dickinson
    said."The girl was only 18 and you should have seen the look on her
    face. My 14-year-old daughter was in the house.

    "I know the signs. I became a model in the late 70's and went to
    New York City with $14 in my pocket. Behind the scenes in the fashion
    industry there are always lines of champagne free champagne, gorgeous
    champagne. I grew up with no money so the minute I hit those trays of
    champagne I began knocking them down.

    "After hours, it was the cocaine and the ecstasy, but I didn't
    realize that the problem was developing. i didn't realize I had the
    problem until I went into rehab in 1982."

    Dickinson said the worst part about her addiction was the
    humiliation. "Humiliation of myself, losing clients, lying to people,
    lying to myself. I've been to rehab twice. In 1982 for cocaine
    addiction and 1993 for pill addiction."

    Judge Cristina denied the defamation claim because Kehoe could not
    prove damages, but praised the former supermodel.

    "When I asked you who you are, I thought you were going to tell me
    was, 'I'm a supermodel' .The first thing you said was, 'I'm a mother.'

    "You are a tough lady who has fought drug abuse and alcohol abuse.
    That's what you really stand for and that's admirable."

    She already spewed it all in her book so it's not new news. I'm glad she was real with the judge and said why she did and said what she had with Kehoe.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    LOL at Kehoe sueing for defamation of character, if I remember correctly Kehoe did a pretty good job all on his own of making himself look awful.....
