'America's Next Top Model'When Shannon decided to make a stand against modeling in underwear for the second time this season, shoot director Jay Manuel was prepared to support that decision on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET on The CW). But considering she was willing to wear skimpy swimwear and dress in revealing clothes, he was still struggling to understand it.

"I would love to understand the message," he told her, but explaining it proved more than she could handle.

"It just comes down to underwear-- If you go-- It's just kind of different," she sputtered out, leaving him more confused than ever.

The Game Loves Allison And Her Music Video on 'America's Next Top Model' (VIDEO)

The Game, 'America's Next Top Model'The Game may not be an expert in fashion, but he does know a thing or two about what looks good when it comes to women. Of course, the same could be said for most men, but most men didn't get to be a guest judge on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET On The CW), and The Game did.

He was particularly fascinated by Allison's video shoot, which he also got to direct. She wasn't quite sure what to make of his critique at first, because he was fixated on the word "weird" in trying to describe what he'd just seen. In his defense, it is certainly the first thing that comes to mind, and not in a bad way.

Tyra Banks Stages 'America's Next Top Model' With Women of 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

Tyra Banks, 'The Talk'Tyra Banks staged an 'America's Next Top Model' photo shoot on 'The Talk' (Weekdays, Syndicated on CBS), featuring the hostesses as the models. She gave them emotions to express and then outlandish situations in which to do it.

Julie Chen had perhaps more fun than even we expected when she was tasked to show "Lust" with a gorilla in the shoot. She got so into it she climbed up on the back of the guy in the gorilla suit.

You just know she was jealous when she saw that Sara Gilbert, who was emoting "Desire," got to do so with three topless guys with way less fur and much better physiques than the gorilla. Gilbert seemed to enjoy herself more than any of the other women.

Wendy Williams and Tyra Banks Compare Notes on Weaves and Cornrows (VIDEO)

When Tyra Banks and Wendy Williams get together, the conversation has a funny way of always turning to hair-care. When Tyra stopped by 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox), the conversation sounded like it could have taken place in a salon, as the two TV stars swapped tips on weaves, stories about cornrows and head-wraps to wear to the gym.

Tyra told Wendy a story about getting her hair done into cornrows while she was taking classes at the Harvard School of Business. "I had a girl come to my dorm and she hooked me up ... and then the next day in class my professors were like, 'Hello Tyra, this is a little different,'" she said. They then compared notes on weaves and head-scarves, and Wendy, somewhat frighteningly, lifted up hers to show her real hair-line.

Kristin Cavallari Displays Perfect 'Booty Tooch' on 'America's Next Top Model' (VIDEO)

Kristin Cavallari, 'America's Next Top Model'Tyra Banks is so fierce she makes up her own language when it suits her. She schooled the models on "the booty tooch" during this week's 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET on MTV). It's a simple technique of arching the back to lift and accentuate the butt.

Based on the photo of side-by-side models she used for her example, it was evident which one looks more feminine and graceful. The model who didn't "tooch" looked blocky and a little shapeless through the middle.

Banks then checked to see if guest judge Kristin Cavallari could model a booty tooch, and the reality star proved up to the task. The next question is, how many of you will be trying this some time today?

Nigle's haircut, on 'ANTM'We all know by now that Tyra rules on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 9PM ET on The CW) and that she always gets what she wants.

This week she was feeling capricious and, although she'd previously ordered judge Nigel Barker to grow his hair super-long she announced that she'd changed her mind: "I don't think it's on-brand."

Then she whipped out an orange hairdressing cape, tied it around the neck of a clearly nervous Nigel, and went at it with a pair of electric clippers.

As André Leon Talley looked on in horror and Nigel started to make scared gargling noises, Tyra shaved off a strip right through to the skin in the center of Nigel's 'do.

by Jean Bentley, posted May 24th 2011 11:00AM
Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey has managed to stay on the air for a nearly unrivaled 25 years while keeping her show current and fresh. How? That's a mystery we mere mortals may never understand.

But there were several stars who attempted to duplicate the big O's success over the years, all starting with the naming standard no future host would dare to change: 'The [Insert Name of Host] Show.'

Though many managed to last more than a decade each (persistence paid off for Montel Williams, Ricki Lake, Geraldo Rivera and Jenny Jones), no other talk show host has made it to the quarter century mark.

To show you just how big a feat Oprah has accomplished, here's a list of 13 daytime talk shows that came and went during Oprah's tenure, a feature which could also be called Talk Shows that Oprah Killed.

Tyra Banks, 'America's Next Top Model'One day and four destinations in four hours proved to be too much for several of the contestants on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 8PM ET on The CW). Only Alexandria, who's a Los Angeles native, had no problem hitting the four Go-Sees in the allotted time.

Alexandria had a great week, as she sailed through every challenge, booked every job and even got high praise from the judges, while the other contestants shot daggers at her from behind their smiling eyes.

It was important for the girls who struggled at the Go-Sees challenge to own the photo shoot at the dump. Look good in a garbage dump, or be shipped out with the trash. Who didn't make the cut this week?

Tyra Banks was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) and the talk -- about skinny models and men being brainwashed to think that's what thy want when, biologically, they want to feel softness next to them -- turned to breast augmentation.

Banks told Morgan about her early days as a model, when magazine covers showed off her assets. People thought she had fake breasts, so to prove that they're real, she once exposed them to the studio audience on her talk show, before having a doctor run a sonogram over them so they could be declared implant-free.
