'America's Next Top Model' Rita Ora 86'd Me Cause We Both Dated Calvin Harris

2/9/2017 11:03 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rita Ora was out to get one of the contestants on "America's Next Top Model," because they both banged Calvin Harris ... so claims the chick who was booted.

Krislian Rodriguez got her walking papers quickly on season 23, after Rita slammed her for "oozing sex" ... a weird comment given that's what models generally do.  

There was also this ... at one point during the competition, Rita whispered to a fellow judge, "I just think we're making a mistake." Some people on the set felt Rita was talking about Krislian.

Rita and Calvin dated in 2013 and 2014 ... we're told Calvin ended it. A short time later he started dating Krislian after meeting her in his music video.

Tyra Banks Selling Fierce Bev Hills Pad For $6.5 MIllion

6/2/2016 9:50 AM PDT

0602_tyra_banks_home_launchTyra Banks is slashing the price of her Beverly Hills home by a cool million after not being able to sell the place for months.

The former "America's Next Top Model" host is selling her Spanish-style mansion for $6.5 million. It's been on the market since September, when she listed it for $7.75 mil. It's not a huge loss, considering she bought the pad for only $3 million.

Tyra's expanded the family so maybe she's looking for a bigger pad -- although this one has 4 bedrooms and 7 baths.

There's also a pool and one of those garages that's been converted into a gym, plus lots of outdoor nooks with fountains for entertaining. Surprisingly, no catwalk.

Ariana Grande Hot Guy from 'Into You' Music Video ... I'm No Big Sean!

5/26/2016 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande fans can kill all the buzz her new music video, "Into You," is about Big Sean ... so says the smoking hot guy who played her love interest.

We got former "America's Next Top Model" star Don Benjamin at LAX Wednesday and asked him about all the comparisons fans have been making between Sean and him.

Many believe the video is about their breakup, especially since Ariana started dating her backup dancer, Ricky, after ending things with Sean.

Don has a different theory -- but keep in mind, Don still seems a little hypnotized by making out with Ariana in the video. Not that we blame him.

Karrueche Tran had a slip of the tongue ... nearly letting the cat out of the bag about her rumored turn as an “America’s Next Top Model" judge -- or at least it appears that way.

Our photog caught Chris Brown's ex at Hollywood & Highland and asked if she'd be a regular when producers bring back the show sans Tyra Banks and J. Alexander. She double clutches on her answer ... so hard to tell if she's in like Flynn or still waiting.

You gotta watch ... there's no smizing without loose lips. Karrueche knows.

EXCLUSIVE

021816-nole-marin-getty"America's Next Top Model" judge Nole Marin is being sued by a couple of models who claim he's more like "America's Top Swindler."

Devon White, who models for Yves Saint Laurent, claims in a new lawsuit, Marin booked him for gigs but only made small cash payments so he could buy food and other necessities. When he asked for his money, he says he got nothing but excuses.

The best excuse, according to the lawsuit ... a booking agent who is also suing Marin claims when he tried to collect his salary, Marin emailed him and said he was being treated for gout and needed extra time.

Another model, Iana Khanashevich, claims her primary language is Russian and he used English to screw her over. She says she's owed thousands.
