Yaya DaCosta divorce

Reality TV star Yaya DaCosta is divorcing her husband after 3 years.

America's Next Top Model Cycle 13 finally jumps the shark with the shortest cast in the show's history. The chicks in cycle 13 range in height from 5'-3" (LOL) to 5'-7". Host Tyra Banks wasn't joking when they said she had love for the short chicks, but Tyra should stop calling them models and refer to them as model rejects since that's what they are.

No one in the modeling industry takes this show seriously any more, and this cycle will probably kill off the ratings for good.
