Strangled. Stabbed. Shot. Beaten. Bloodied. Brains splattered against a wall. Strike a pose! It was just another high-end fashion shoot featuring the Tyrawannabes on America’s Next Top Model. This week’s episode, lost in the hoopla over the weeping Idol girl and the violent billboards for the movie Captivity, forced the glam contestants to pose as brutalized corpses!
It was either sophisticated commentary from a closet Andrea Dworkin feminist on the production staff… an over-the-top attempt to get the guys tuning in– or maybe Tyra Banks is just so jealous of the young ones she fantasized killing them all!
Whatever the case, fat-obsessed Tyra is taking the heat– and getting attention.While the show’s judges enjoyed the gruesome tableaus and the models like making up stories about how they’d kill their competitors, women’s groups are predictably up-in-arms.
Sonia Ossorio, president of the New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women, told the New York Daily News: “Violence against women is such a reality in our society that I certainly don’t need the entertainment industry making light of it and making entertainment out of it.
“It’s supremely ironic, when it’s a show geared toward women about women, and about glamour.”
The CW will show the episode again, Sunday at 9.
