Model Agent Criticises Australia’s Next Top Model To Promote Own Model Search.
In the SMH today Chic Management’s Kathy Ward criticised the very popular Australia’s Next Top Model.
She said that while the reality TV show might occasionally uncover some talent, the format was a far from ideal environment for young women aspiring to a career on the catwalk.”It takes them away from their families and exposes them to controversy,” she said. “I think that with young girls who really want to get into modelling, their families will protect them and not let them go into a house and expose them to other girls like that. Obviously [they have some protection] but I just don’t think it’s a particularly good environment for young girls to start in.”
However it was revealed her agency was involved in the show for the first two season, before Priscilla’s Management took over. Clearly Kathy had no qualms about the show then.
Nor of criticising the show to promote the new modelling competition they are involved in.
Chic Management is one of the sponsors of Replay Faces 2008 (www.replay.it/faces), a new national online model-search competition, to be launched by Erin McNaught on Wednesday.

Big Brother Continuing to Decline – Gretel Must Be Watching With Amusement.
Big Brother lost me weeks ago with all the twist and turns, and over manipulations. And they continue to try and revive it by adding more intruders to the house. Just leave it be and let the personalities evolve by themselves. Remember the first three seasons???
