As you know, Naima has been crowned America’s Next Top Model. Now we can watch as she fades into obscurity. That’s America’s Next Best Pastime. At Salon, Heather Havrilesky has been recapping every moment of the show’s many memorable moments, without holding back or blocking her feelings.
The girls are, of course, more than happy to take Tyra’s cue and overstate the importance of it all. “I feel like modeling is kind of my way of expressing my emotions,” Kahlen tells us. Um, OK. Gotcha. And what happens when you reach the ripe old age of 23? You turn to the bottle?
Naima is even worse. Gushing, through tears, she tells the camera: “It’s taken so much to get here. It’s taken so much!” OK, Scarlett O’Hara. We all partied when we were younger, and it was never as dramatic as fainting and falling down the stairs at Tara — even when we fainted and fell down the stairs.
Fans of ANTM and friends of the WOW Report should look forward to the show’s next season because we hear that someone very close to WOW will be guest judging. All we can say is that it’s not the show’s #1 fan Randy Barbato.
