You know the sort of actress who doesn't really seem to act so much as appear in public and magazines and ads.
That's what this episode reminded me of. The photoshoot wasn't high fashion at all. It was a public service announcement. Which is fine, if this was America's Next Top Role Model, but it's not.
I felt almost patronized by Tyra. "When young girls watch this show and see you, their role models, smoking, what does that make them think? 'Hmm, smoking must be cool'"
Oh, I see now! This isn't about principles....it's because ANTM needs a whole new brand of in-house drama.
"Hey, Ken Mok, imagine how much they'd fight if they were deprived of the nicotine that their body is addicted to!"
"You're right, Tyra...smoking ban!"
Okay, I'm sorry, and I know I'm going against pretty much all Top Model fans, but I can't stand Heather. She's quite irritating, I don't think she's gorgeous and I don't think people with autism are really made for the fashion industry. So I was bummed that Saleisha and her gorgeous face had to share the shoot with Heather. Still, Saleisha looks goood.
