Tyra Banks won't say why Janice Dickinson and Paulina Porizkova were fired



While you were agog at yet another season of ludicrous narcissism in the latest cycle of America's Next Top Model on Wednesday night (you know, when you should have been watching President Barack Obama address Congress), you may have missed the fireworks between Tyra Banks and Cynthia McFadden on ABC's Nightline later on. You can't expect us to learn about health care and watch a newsmagazine in the same night, can you?

"Both Paulina Porizkova and Janice Dickinson, when they left the show, were not very nice about you," McFadden said, mispronouncing the former's name as "Paula Porvikova," thus proving she was qualified to conduct the interview. The pregnant pause was filled only with Tyra smiling with her eyes and saying nothing.

"Let's not go there," Tyra's publicist Lisa Israel said. "I am going to go there," McFadden replied. "I am going to ask that question." Watch it above, starting around the 1:30 mark.

Unfortunately, she got no answer, as it faded to an audition in New York in which hopefuls were seen nearly rioting (although Nightline failed to mention it was because a car backfiring prompted a panic over an alleged bombing). And really, who cares that Janice was fired after Cycle 4 for being a diva and Paulina got the boot on her birthday after last season? Ty Ty shares the spotlight with no one!
