The Skinny on the Modeling "Agency"

VH1's new reality series "The Agency" reveals the ugly side of the beauty biz!

The show takes place inside the famous Wilhelmina modeling agency in New York, where agents and bookers offer some very harsh advice to the young models. While already thin by normal standards, the walking waifs are continually told by their handlers to lose weight, workout more -- and to look like a "bloody stick." The lovely bones!

The modeling industry has been under attack for its skeletal weight demands, causing all of Spain, and fashion capital Milan to set up new codes banning emaciated girls from the catwalks. Bon appetito, ladies!

While the hard truth in "The Agency" may not be pretty, it does make for good TV.

"The Agency" airs Tuesdays at 10:00 PM on VH1.
