Janice Dickinson: Tyra Banks' 'Top Model' Apology Was Fake

Janice Dickinson has called out Tyra Banks for her apology for releasing the "America's Next Top Model" trailer showing a model with an extremely tiny waist. Dickinson, who used to be a judge on the show, told Access Hollywood, "Everything they shoot is intentional. Don't tell me different. I did it for five seasons." She added, "Tyra is the executive producer of that show....It's her show. She's very controlling. She's the hardest working woman on that show. She has her finger on that pulse -- trust me."

Over a week ago, a trailer for "America's Next Top Model" surfaced featuring Ann, a six-foot-two lanky blonde with seemingly the smallest waist ever--Miss J could even wrap his hands around her midsection. Tyra then issued a statement, apologizing for the clip, claiming she hadn't seen it before it was aired. An excerpt:

As a leader in celebrating and promoting healthy body image, I must admit that I regrettably didn't see this clip before it was released to the public, (with multiple Top Model departments, it's just impossible to review everything) but on behalf of the Top Model team, these were not the intentions, and we truly apologize for any confusion, anger or disappointment it may have caused.

This isn't the first time the two ladies have gotten into it. In the past, Janice has called Tyra "huge" and possibly a man.
