Wowsa. "Full-Figured" Whitney is America's Next Top Model
Here is Whitney in her "grunge" look. Frankly, I think a Lamestain t-shirt would have been more convincing. But I digress. She's America's Next Top Model! Yay! We'll see her in some embarrassingly awkward Cover Girl commercials that will run during next season's show, she'll be on the cover of Seventeen, and so much more!
Despite my sarcasm, I must admit that I am genuinely excited about this. It's about time Tyra let a girl with a normal-looking body take the grand prize. "This should not be called plus-sized or full-figured. This should just be called beautiful," said Paulina Porizkova when congratulating Whitney on her win. And I think we should all take Paulina seriously on that one. Even though she was wearing a tiara when she said it.
