Janice Dickinson gave this response when asked what she thought about the recent controversy surrounding super skinny models:
“I’m dying to find kids who are too thin. I’ve got 42 models in my agency and I’m trying to get them to lose weight. In fact, I wish they’d come down with some anorexia. I’m not kidding. I’m running into a bunch of fat-assed, lazy little bitches who don’t know how to do the stairs or get their butts into the gym.”
Janice also says that the new recommendations proposed by the Council of Fashion designers that include development worships on the causes and effects of eating disorders, providing healthy backstage meals and snacks, having 16 being the minimum age for runway models and requiring those models identified as having an eating disorder to receive profession help as “bull”.
Dickinson doesn’t mince her words on the new series of her reality show, The Janice Dickinson Show telling one wannabe model:
“She had a big, wide, low-slung ass. She’s gotta do some stairs. She’s gotta do lunges. She’s gotta have sex on top. Anything to get her ass of the back of her knee-caps.”
The self proclaimed ‘worlds 1st supermodel’ has obviously been affected by the industry’s version of thin:
“I’ve been saying this ever since Brooke Shields squeezed her 15-year-old little ass into a pair of Calvin Klein jeans (in 1980): Models are supposed to be thin. They’re not supposed to eat. In fact, I’m not going to eat for the rest of the day because we had this conversation”
Coming in the wake of the death of 21 year old Brazilian model Ana Carolina Resta due to anorexia, Janice could use her experience of what model life was like into turning it into a more positive experience for young models now in her position as model agency owner instead of using cheap publicity tactics like this.
