Who needs TV when you have infamous the Naomi Campbell/Tyra Banks feud?

On Tuesday, Naomi Campbell shared an eyebrow-raising article with her 9.8 million followers on her Instagram stories. The article, entitled “Here’s Why Fans Are Starting To Think Tyra Banks Is The Real Mean Girl, Not Naomi Campbell”, came with the caption: “The woe-is-me Tyra narrative has definitely worn off.” It laid out an argument that Tyra Banks is the true villain of the two’s decades-long feud.

As a refresher, Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell have had an intense personal and professional feud that has lasted for years.

Banks has long spoken about the fraught relationship, telling pretty much anyone who would listen that Campbell tried to torpedoe her career before it ever really got off the ground.

Over the years, Banks hasn’t let up on the narrative that Campbell is the more evil of the two. Even last year, in an interview with Wall Street Journal, Banks continued to talk about the feud–long after the two had tried to put the whole thing to rest.

“It wasn’t a rivalry, and I’m very sensitive to that word because a rivalry is with two equals to me, whereas one was very dominant,” she said. “She was a supermodel, and I was just this new girl that had got on a plane from Paris and was studying fashion and magazines.”

She then added: “As much as I was booking fashion shows, people didn’t know I was going home at night crying my eyes out because the woman I was looking up to seemed like she just didn’t want me to be there and was doing everything in her power to make me go away,”

Although the media has always portrayed Banks as the more angelic of the two supermodels, the tide has recently turned.

Banks has gotten heat lately after as savvy viewers have revisited old “America’s Next Top Model” episodes that have become available on Hulu and Amazon Prime.

Banks, who served as an executive producer and overall brainchild of the show for 24 seasons, was allegedly behind many problematic photoshoots and wildly inappropriate behavior towards newbie models.

Some photoshoots included blackface, putting them in dangerous situations, and pressuring them to pose nude. There were also a few instances where she gaslit contestants, shamed them for being gay, pressured them into permanently altering their appearance, and eliminated them for gaining weight.

Now, people are starting to re-consider the idea that Campbell was the only one to be blamed for the feud.

There are two sides to every story, after all.

This person has a theory as to why Tyra is the *true* mean girl.

It’s definitely true that Naomi has never tried to hide her diva behavior, while Tyra has always peddled the narrative that she’s America’s sweetheart and a friend and mentor to up-and-coming models.

This person made an on-point observation about how long this feud has been going on.

Honestly, at this point, the feud will probably will be going on until one of them is in the ground at this point. At least Ryan Murphy has more material for his anthology series.

This Twitter user had a hot-take which is probably the most accurate, tbh.

In the end, we really don’t think either of these two women were angels. You don’t become a world famous supermodel, after all, by playing nice.

What happens when a runway icon meets a historical red carpet moment?

Model Tyra Banks paid tribute to Jennifer Lopez’s famous red carpet moment at the 2000 Grammy Awards on Monday. During a “themed’ episode of “Dancing With The Stars” Banks wore the green chiffon Versace gown while also hitting up the dance floor as Lopez’s hit song “Jenny from the Block” played.

As a tribute to Lopez’s most iconic red carpet moment, Banks wore The Versace Gown which she had made out of scarves.

“What’s up America?” Banks asked the world at the top of the show while showing off the gown that inspired Google Images. In a post shared to Banks’ Instagram Story the “Dancing with The Stars” host revealed that the jungle print look was made out of Versace chiffon scarfs.

While the dress didn’t feature the daring plunging V-neck line that Lopez sported nearly two decades ago, it did feature a similar pattern, long sleeves with cutouts, a middle slit, a crystalized belt. Banks also wore her hair in a similar look to Lopez’s.

Of course, the “America’s Next Top Model” host isn’t the first celeb to sport Lopez’s iconic red carpet look.

J.Lo wore an updated version of the dress to close Versace’s spring/summer 2020 show during Milan Fashion Week. American soap actress Lisa Rinna paid homage to the look last year when she wore something similar at Casamigos Halloween party in Beverly Hills. “Jenny from the block. 💚 Halloween 2019,” the reality star captioned a video of her look.

In a video posted to her YouTube channel, Lopez spoke about wearing the dress at the 2000 Grammys.

“All of a sudden you start hearing a little murmur. I’m thinking, it’s the Grammys. It has to be somebody famous behind us,” she explained of the moment. “It was a frenzy. The flashes started going in a way that it’s not usually. There was an extra kinetic energy there. I was like what the hell is going on? I had no idea it was about this dress.”

“Me totally unsuspecting, walk out and as I walk out my dress, the wind hits it. It blows open slightly, so now I am like bare here and bare here! All of a sudden, again, a slow murmur and everybody starts clapping. We get an ovation for just standing there!” she added. “In that moment, that dress became something that people still reference.”

Pablo Alborán recently came out of the closet and will be the first to tell you that he is happier now. The heartthrob singer came out this month because, pride and we are all here for this. Just look at him.

This is recently out singer Pablo Alborán and he is kind of a dreamboat.

Siempre alerta.. 🐺

Alborán came out this month to mark Pride Month. The handsome singer came out in an emotional Instagram post saying that he is a little bit happier after coming out. It is probably safe to say that gay men around the world are happier to know that he is part of the community. Like, a handsome man who reads poetry might be cliché but that is so fine.

He is a musician so he can play you to sleep at night.

Who needs a white noise machine when you have this handsome man serenading you? Just picture it for a second. You come home from a long day at work. After some dinner, you lie on the couch and relax as Alborán slowly serenades you with his guitar. What a way to end a long day at work.

Let’s take a moment to talk about his legs in those shorts.

That might be shallow but there is something about men in short shorts, right? Clearly Alborán offers so much more than just his physical appearance. However, he does look good in his short shorts.

A man who cooks is a man you want around.

Okay. You have our attention. Cooking is one of the most caring things people can do. It is a special gift that they are handcrafting for you to enjoy and nourish your body.

Lastly, he is not afraid of some heavy lifting and that’s refreshing.

Some times you need things done but physically can’t (or don’t want to). Alborán seems willing and ready to do those chores. It’s the little things, like moving chairs across the room that really make things special.

Who are you currently crushing over?
