Janice Dickinson steps Behind The Rope. Let me repeat that. Janice Dickinson. Icon. Living Legend in the Flesh. The World’s First Supermodel. The Simon Cowell of America’s Next Top Model. Reality TV veteran from before reality TV was reality TV a la Oxygen’s “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency”. In true Janice fashion, she - DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK! Of course, we begin with a chat about Janice’s early career where we talk about her then Supermodel colleagues Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss and last, but certainly not least, Tyra Banks and the many men in her life for a moment, a moment plus, or what could have been a moment, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Simon Le Bon. Speaking of Tyra Banks, Janice was front and center for the first many cycles of the juggernaut hit “America's Next Top Model” as the most outspoken judge. Notoriously anti-plus size model, Janice has never shied away from controversy or speaking her mind. Janice opens up about how she clashed with Tyra, discusses Tyra’s notoriously bad on set behavior and is kind enough, we asked, ok begged, to reveal secrets from behind the scenes of filming. As often happens here Behind The Rope, all roads lead to Housewives or, in this case, Housewives offspring and Kardashians. Janice shares her opinions on the current modeling industry and models like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Delilah Belle Hamlin, Bella Hadid, Amelia Gray Hamlin, Hailey Baldwin and Kaia Gerber - how do they compare to the Icons of yesteryear and have they earned, or instead bought, their way in with money and / or a famous last name. We also address the current “influencer”, for lack of a better word, culture and how anyone with abs and a great pair of t*ts can be insta-famous. While we had Janice, and lucky we are to have been graced by the presence of royalty, we had to ask about her current relationship with Tyra and if she feels differently all these years later. We also pay homage to all, and we mean all, those other Reality TV shows she has been a part of: Botched!, Celebrity Big Brother, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and The Surreal Life. Did we mention the whole reason Janice was here was thanks to her good friends, literary agent Alan Nevins and celebrity chef Joey Santos. Not only do these guys know Janice well, they know everyone, and we mean everyone, in Hollywood and are talking about it on their stellar new Podcast aptly titled, “Two Guys From Hollywood”. On their Pod, they don’t dish, they serve. Literally, they serve food and drinks (thank you Joey) to their guests each week while they unpack never before heard tidbits from some of the entertainment business finest including, but not limited to, our BFFs from across the river Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania and, well, yours truly (yup Behind The Velvet Rope appeared last week! - feel free to check it out). Thanks boys for all, especially for delivering Icon in the Flesh Miss Janice Dickinson Behind The Rope. Oh, and the best part of this foursome? We are just getting started. Part II coming soon!
