Harsh ‘Model’ critic gets show

From Associated Press

Cast off by “America’s Next Top Model,” Janice Dickinson will get her own reality modeling show on the Oxygen network.

Dickinson was ousted from the UPN show in May. During her four seasons on the show, she was the harshest critic of the model hunt’s judging panel and often quarreled with fellow judges.

She’ll winnow 500 aspiring models down to five as she starts her own Hollywood modeling agency on what is tentatively titled “The Janice Dickinson Project.” Oxygen has ordered 10 episodes, which are expected to begin airing in the spring.

Dickinson, 52, is the author of “No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel” and “Everything About Me Is Fake ... and I’m Perfect.”
