Just when you thought you had enough of Tyra (as if America’s Next Top Model and the Tyra show weren’t enough), it just gets better, my friends. We will be seeing plenty more of self-obsessed Tyra on television shows centered around…well, Tyra: I’m talking “guest” appearances in every episode, theme songs filled with Tyra’s gyrating booty, Victoria’s Secret-esque flipping of the hair and reincarnated “Tyra Mails.”
Here’s a description of the show Stylista (which airs on Oct. 22), taken from the CW website:
If “The Devil Wears Prada” were a reality show, it would be “Stylista.” Eleven aspiring fashion enthusiasts vie for a much-coveted editorial job with Elle magazine. They work as assistants to Elle’s Fashion News Director, Anne Slowey, a demanding but well-respected fashion icon. The competitors carry out an assistant task and a fashion editorial assignment in each episode.
Each week, in consultation with Elle’s Creative Director, Joe Zee, Anne fires one person, until the last assistant standing gets “promoted” to the coveted real-life job opportunity. The grand prize includes a paid editorial position at Elle magazine, a paid lease on a great apartment in Manhattan, and a clothing allowance at H&M, all for one year, valued at $100,000.
Check out a quick preview of the show:
Operation Fabulous, another upcoming show hosted by Mr. and Miss Jay (aka Jay Manuel and J. Alexander), will be a makeover show that features five women from one town (for each episode) who get makeovers and compete with each other, but only one who will be the winner from that town. Then the winners from each episode then go on to compete in an even bigger competition, which finally results in only one winner who will grant a makeover to the other contestants from his/her hometown. Think Fox’s show The Swan, but not as immoral.
