Shots have been fired! Linda recently guest judged on an episode of ‘Australia’s Next Top Model,’ and following her appearance, she threw major shade at fellow model and ‘America’s Next Top Model’ creator Tyra Banks.
America’s Next Top Model features a lot of onscreen drama, but who knew most of the catfighting went on behind the scenes! After model Linda Evangelista, 50, guest judged on an episode of the Australian version of the reality competition show, she slammed fellow model and creator of ANTM, Tyra Banks, 41. See what she said!
Linda Evangelista: ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Doesn’t Produce Models
“I do love reality shows,” Linda told The Daily Telegraph. “But the reality shows I watch are the cooking ones so I don’t know the format. I did accept this because what I’ve heard is that this [the Australian version] is the best model show around the world and that this one actually produces models because a lot of them don’t.”
Linda also went on to say that appearing on the show was a bit nerve-wracking for her. But that’s pretty surprising, considering she’s a model who has walked hundreds of catwalks throughout her career. But alas, she said:
“Point a camera at me and I don’t care if there’s a million people looking, I am fine with it. But I was nervous for the girls. I hate being judged so it was really hard to take that approach. I feel like I’m having fun with it but at the same time I’m out of my element. It’s very exciting for me because it is new. I’ve never done anything like this. Having said that, I was very nervous. It is not what I do.”
We have a feeling that Tyra will be responding to this harsh diss very soon. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Whose side are you on? Vote in our poll and tell us how you feel!
