Alicia Keys & Tyler Perry To Appear On New Season of ‘America’s Next Top Model’

Can you believe “America’s Next Top Model” is in it’s 19th season? I sure can not. As much as I love Tyra Banks, between the low ratings & ever-changing judging panel (many of the show’s notables were fired recently, click HERE to learn more), to me, it seems as though the show’s run may need to come to an end in the near future.

For the upcoming college edition (they’re running out of ideas),Tyra Banks has announced that Tyler Perry & Alicia Keys will appear in the series to garner ratings.

Perry will give the aspiring models an acting challenge. According to TV Guide, the acting challenge winner will get a role in a Tyler Perry movie.

Show viewers can also look forward to seeing Alicia Keys as a celebrity mentor in one episode. 

The 19th cycle of America’s Next Top Model premieres on The CW on August 24. Will you be watching?

Bobbi Kristina Makes Acting Debut on Tyler Perry Sitcom

As I reported earlier this year, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her acting debut on “Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse.”

Bobbi, 19, plays the daughter of a salon stylist in the  role, though she is only signed for one season because she plans to devote her time to a new reality show on Lifetime Network titled “The Houston Family Chronicles”,  which will follow the antics of Bobbi Kristina & her family.

In case you missed it, watch the daughter of the late Whitney Houston, watch a clip of her scene below:

Though I was unable to catch the season premiere on Friday night, Tyler Perry excitedly tweeted about “Krissi”, as he affectionately calls her:

Crazy, But True: Tyler Perry Purchased Matching Bentleys For BFFs Oprah & Gayle King

According to Forbes, Tyler Perry is worth a cool $350 million, but who knew he was this affluent? 

 In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Gayle King revealed that the multi-talented movie maker purchased a Bentley for both her & Oprah. Yes, a Bentley. 

 It began last summer when Perry pulled up for a lunch with the women in a “gorgeous Bentley,” King told Vanity Fair magazine. Oprah admired it, King said, “so he sent her the same exact car.”

 …& that was just the start.

 “I called Tyler and told him how amazing that was because nobody ever does anything like that for her, on such a grand scale,” King said. “…so, the next day when I got home, there was a Bentley in my driveway!”

 Don’t we all wish that we had such good friends?
