On last night’s finale of America’s Next Top Model cycle 13, Nicole Fox was crowned the winner of the first ever petite season, which had all the models at 5’7″ or under.
Nicole beat out runner up Laura Kirkpatrick to take the final prize which includes a contract with Wilhelmina Models, a six-page Seventeen spread and cover, plus a $100,000 CoverGirl deal to look forward to. “I’m a dork and I’m America’s Next Top Model!” exclaimed the 18-year-old from Louisville, Colorado.
“This journey was incredibly hard,” Nicole said. “I had to learn to embarrass myself—and to speak, which was a struggle. Sometimes I didn’t think I was going to survive the journey. Like, I remember during casting week I went home and I cried because I was like, ‘What have I gotten myself into? I can’t deal with this.’
Good luck to Nicole, she will be needing it as a majority of past ANTM winners haven’t had much success in the modeling world. Former ANTM judge, Paulina Porizkova echoed the same sentiment in a past interview. Paulina even went as far as to say, “Go to Top Model only if you don’t want to be a model.”
“No I’m not [coming back] next season,” Julianne, 21, toldRyan Seacrest at the New Moon premiere Monday night in Los Angeles. As for whether she might return the following season, Hough dodged the question. “We’re going go cross that bridge when we come to it,” she said.
Julianne has also broken up with her boyfriend and former DWTS partner, country singer Chuck Wicks. “So are you single?” Seacrest asked. “Um, technically,” Hough said without explaining further.
For the moment, Julianne is staying busy as a country singer and budding movie star. She is starring in the upcoming movie Burlesque with Cher and Christina Aguilera.
A secret contract signed between Jon Gosselin and former girlfriend Kate Major has been uncovered by RadarOnline.
If you recall, Kate Major was the Star Magazine tabloid reporter who quit her job back in July so she could be with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. Jon later denied ever dating Kate though the two had been photographed together on more than one occasion.
According to Radar, the contract has Jon hiring Kate as his personal assistant, promising to pay her a percentage of his “accounts” and spelling out that she would not talk about their relationship. This document could be a new source of trouble for Jon in the current lawsuit TLC has against Jon for breach of contract and fraud.
The contract reads, “I, Jon Gosselin, will employ Kate Major as a personal assistant,” Jon wrote on the document dated July 28, 2009. Jon pledged that she could handle “some but not all future accounts” in a paragraph. Jon continues: “She will receive a percentage of accounts for payment based upon involvement.”
The contract was written just days after Kate quit her job for Star Magazine. A Photo of the handwritten contract written by the genius is below –
The autopsy result is in, and it confirms Ashley A.J. Jewel, former fiance of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss, died from a rare trait of sickle cell anemia that became fatal because of a fight he had back in October.
AJ’s death is still however being ruled as a homicide based on a report from the Fulton County medical examiner given to AJC. “Although Mr. Jewell died of complications of his underlying natural disease conditions, [the] complications would not have occurred if he had not experienced the extreme exertion that was part of the physical altercation,” the report said. “Due to the active involvement of another person, the manner of death is classified as a homicide.”
Initially, it was believed Jewell, 35, died of blunt force trauma to the head. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office later said AJ most likely died from sickle cell, a condition he did not know he had.
Frederick Richardson has been charged with voluntary manslaughter in the death of AJ. He is currently free on bond.
