Janice Dickinson Plus Gay Deaf Model

So while Tyra is having a transgender contestant on the coming season of ANTM, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency is back and signing an openly gay and deaf model.

Man on Man Tango

Steve Guttenberg practiced a man-on-man tango with Jonathan Roberts on Dancing with the Stars when Guttenberg’s partner Anna Trebunskaya fell ill. I’m glad she got better, but I’d rather see the man-tango on the show.
