Janice Dickinson is a frightful beast

If you watch America's Next Top Model (or you're friends with someone who does), I'm sure you know that Janice Dickinson is a crazy bitch who thinks she's still as hot as when she became the world's first super model and will say rude and hurtful things to girls' faces with impunity. So, she's not my favorite person and I don't see what she really brings to the show other than drama and the odd fight with Tyra. This evening, I was watching The Surreal Life for the first time this season and was really surprised by the cast: Carey Hart (professional motocross rider), Caprice (P.O.A.), Bronson Pinchot (Balki), Omarosa (the bossiest woman alive), Jose Canseco, Sandra Denton (Salt of Salt N'Pepa), and Janice. As a super model, I'm sure Janice has spent the last 20 years under a mask of high-priced make-up and she always looks flawless on ANTM... but I saw her without her make-up during the opening of the Surreal Life and I almost fell off the couch because I was so frightened by the sight.

The horror!

I find it amusing that she seems to require a make-up artist to visit her every morning of the show because she actually looks horrible and couldn't possibly be filmed without at least an hour in the make-up chair. I guess I shouldn't be surprised since she's 52 years old, but I'm definitely amused (and slightly pleased) that she's as horrible under her make-up as her personality.

The final product

Janice when she deserved to be on TV

I found this while doing research on Janice. The blog I stole it from claims it's the most glamorous ID photo ever and (almost) makes up for her crazy antics. I can't tell, but this card seems to list her DOB as February 15, 1955, although IMDB and most other sources list it as Februrary 17, 1953. Sounds like a great mystery to me...

I've seen a few episodes of the Surreal Life and it cracks me up how out of touch with reality Janice Dickinson really is. And her self-absorbtion is at a level I didn't even know was possible. I saw this one episode where they were doing an "extreme makeover" of a backyard for a shelter for domestic abuse victims and their children, and Janice, on more than one occassion, said "I'm a supermodel. I don't do..." to get out of doing the most basic of tasks. Ridiculous.

Whoever her publicist is clearly did not think through just how ugly she would come across on this show.

I thought Gia was the first supermodel. Or at least the first supermodel to have sex on women.

Gia was a super model, but sadly she was big before the term "supermodel" was really used. Janice's excuse-making is really pathetic; as if her make-up artist couldn't just fix any broken nails when he's putting on her face the next morning. She also tried to get out of the motocross outing by calling her agent who told her, basically, to suck it up and deal. Then she was like "Oh, I'm a supermodel so I do what the job requires." Also, I don't think she has the right to use the present tense anymore when saying things like that. It's more like "I WAS a supermodel when I was much, much younger." Lastly, I just read that Janice has been booted from ANTM because of issues between her an Tyra. Thank God!

My fave is when Tyra says of Janice (during her panel introductions), "one of the world's first supermodels", and Janice always comes back with "THE first supermodel"...c'mon bitch! you're way old now, get over yourself already!

Posted by: Jess at August 22, 2005 01:30 PM

Oh no, no more Janice?! WHO WILL MAKE THE MODELS CRY?!?

Seeing models cry is the #1 reason I watch ANTM--they better bring in Simon Cowell or maybe a midget with a baseball bat to compensate.

MAN! MIDGET WITH A BASEBALL BAT! I should *so* be made executive produced of ANTM--can you imagine the brilliance?

Posted by: Renee at September 1, 2005 01:18 PM

I'd like too smack her in the face everytime she speaks, she's too much of a superficial bitch.

Posted by: Gee-I-wonder at September 9, 2005 06:19 PM

Janice gives women of the same generation a bad name. Of any generation, for that matter. Nobody paid any attention to her 30 years ago because many women could have cared less about vanity. I know, I was there. Woman were doing more important things. This is her last gasp at fame. I'm embarrassed for her. Try watching "Booknotes" on C-SPAN instead.

i love janice dickinson, anyone who writes anything bad about her should be ashamed! she's a beautiful free spirit who is happy with herself. so what she does a bunch of stupid things on tv. everyone has made idiots of themselves. but i love janice dickinson to death

Posted by: cassie at October 17, 2005 04:17 PM

Janice Dickinson is a textbook narcissist. Her claims grow larger with each show. Now she's claiming that she was always kind to her 'sister models'. Does anyone believe that? Crazy!!!!

Posted by: j.j. at October 22, 2005 11:37 AM

as far as im concerned, Janice is fucking FANTASTIC!!! She has lived such a fake and plastic life that I think theres nothing more to expect from her! SHES FIERCE

Posted by: j at January 28, 2006 11:07 PM

hola janice eres muy linda para tener 45 aƱos eres la primer supermodelo sigue asi ........................chao....!

Posted by: Alejandro at March 31, 2006 12:35 PM

Janice compulsory-glamour behaviour it debts only because she started modeling and was into all that stuff since she was small. She has grown up inside that world, so its pretty obvious she will behave like that.
Yet we got to thank her for breaking up that so much "stereotype" of blonde chick girl with blue eyes cheerleader kind.
Apart from that, her dramas and comments are not so much obnoxious for a person who has patience and can handle capriscious people. I saw surreal life for a time, and I got too much used to see her on the show, I think that without her it would have been plenty boring.
I think in some sort of way, everybody loves Janice, just because she has that 'morbo' side that most of all people are afraid to show, for obvious comments like the ones seen here.

Janice Dickinson is the most frightful thing seen on telivision since the elephant man. she should not be allowed on tv and i personaly think that ANTM should ban her from the show because frankly she is making me not want to watch it. she needs to get over herself and look in the mirror (which would be very scary). I think that Janice should take a good look at herself before she critisizes the other girls.

Posted by: jane at April 26, 2006 06:50 AM

Can u make me some more screen caps of Janice on Surreal Life please?

Posted by: tony at April 27, 2006 01:18 PM

um...janice is the shit and the best so thats it

Posted by: rjb at May 17, 2006 06:55 PM

janice dickinson had a bad childhood but she made a great model. even if her personality is a bit out there and her antics have been less than perfect, she still stands as a role model for other models trying to make it. her poses are outstanding and she still manages to photograph well at an older age. so everyone leave her alone!!

Posted by: star at May 24, 2006 01:18 PM

Posted by: krs10 at June 8, 2006 09:45 PM

I agree with Kristina...this bitch is psycho and needs to be put out to pasture...she's old and outdated...i say out with old and in with new

Posted by: Alysha at June 9, 2006 01:25 PM

Janice Dickinson is outrageous & I think it makes her even more amazing---i love people who aren't afraid to be themselves & cause a scene just to make a day more exciting. With a life like she lived, she deserves to be this crazy beautiful! HOO-RAH JANICE!

Posted by: gemini at June 21, 2006 04:34 PM

Janice is a huge plastic bitch! god love her. i wish i was like janice; mean,rich,mean,mean. W/e if you dont like janice its prbably because nobody likes you.this forum is wrong. Janice cant help it that shes popular,so she shouldnt be punished for being well liked. so all you haters can go shave your backs now.

Posted by: Chase at June 24, 2006 12:30 AM

i like janice. sure, shes a bitch. but shes also incredibly real...well, her actions, not her looks. and she knows her looks are fake. have you seen her E true hollywood story? her life sucked. she says shes all fake and proud of it. shes loud and obnoxious, and shes ok with that. at least she doesnt pretend she, you have to have someone brutally honest on that show. she was it. and it could be funny. sometimes downright heartless, but funny. get over it. she is the first supermodel because she came up with the term, and the term is used frequently now, so let her show of that she invented it.

Posted by: brittany at June 27, 2006 05:45 PM

I don't see where you get off talking about Janice Dikinson in the first place. Obvioulsy, you haven't read the book about her life and obvioulsy, your resenting the fact that your probably 41 and look a lot more frightening than that. So what if she wears make-up to cover herself up. NEWS FLASH! THE REST OF THE WORLD DOES THE SAME THING! She was one of the people that broke barriers in the modeling agency in order to become what she has become. She is a, "Polish Mutt" as she so quotes herself in her book. And when she was trying to become a model, everybody denied her because she wasn't blonde haired and blue eyed, much like the rest of the world. Tyra Banks, even though I like her, has absolutely nothing on Janice Dikinson. So when she does comment on the models on Antm, she does it with experience. That's not to say that Tyra doesn't have any experience but, how old is Tyra in comparison to Janice!?! Janice Dikinson has a right to come off as a Bitch on television and anywhere else she goes, because she was the worlds FIRST SUPERmodel. Not only that, but she did it while being brunette and brown eyed while the rest of the world was blonde and blue eyed. Show some respect to the woman who made it possible for brunettes to even be considered gorgeous. Even though she is 53, if your info. is even correct, she has a beautiful body. And yes, maybe she does use make-up to cover up her flaws, but what do people do when they have flaws on their face? Next time, do all of your research before you degrade someone who made fashion change, the one thing that influences everything.

wow... i like janice. she's great, and whatever she does on tv shows that she has a vivid personality. she's just as notorious as paris hilton, which is totally not a bad thing. the difference is janice was famous because of something cool she's done (by being a great supermodel; the FIRST, said so). i like paris hilton. i also like janice. no reason for hating her. it's just the way that she is. don't ya think that she's a comedic bitch who always offers us something ridiculous to be laughed about? she cherished the world with laughter...

Posted by: loreleia at July 13, 2006 05:42 PM

Omg. Janice is so funny. And plus. She doesnt look that bad w/o makeup. And if you hate her so much then why look her up all over the internet? One word? STALKER.

Posted by: Nicole at July 14, 2006 10:43 AM

Yeah, Janice is a bitch. But I really like her, she speaks her mind and KNOWS she is a bitch. Hell, she calls HERSELF fake. She's insane and vain, which is what makes her amusing.

Oh and on that first post with her license, IMDB changed her birthdate to the 15th. And Wikipedia has the same DOB. I'm not sure if the ID in itself is real, though.

Posted by: Kerry at September 1, 2006 09:14 PM

Janice Dickinson is a worldknown wonderful Model. She is my ICON, IDOL, and Role Model I'll be darn lucky to be even half of what she is in the very near future.

She is a wonderful model she is upfront she is flawless and beautiful endlessly
