Jay Manuel Turns on Tyra Banks?


Former Americas Next Top Model judge Jay "Mr. Jay" Manuel releasing a thinly veiled tell-all about Tyra Banks and his time on the show...

This week Jay teased his new novel, 'The Wig, The Bitch and The Meltdown,' promising lots of tea from behind the scenes on a 'fictional' model competition reality show with a host eerily similar to his former boss Tyra Banks.

Good Morning everyone!

He's done no press, that I know of, so to purchase this book and then find out the contents are a damn dud? If it was that juicy, Tyra would have sent out a cease and desist.

Interesting....who has Tyra pissed off??? Sure hearing her name in the air alot and it's not been too good either.

For legality purposes, Jay has to say it's a *satirical* take on *characters* that he's known in his life. In reality, I think this will be an absolute true take on his experience working with Tyra. And I am here for the tea, hunty!!

He has too many fillers and too much botox. I'm so glad Tyra the tyrant is getting exposed. I heard she was a piece of work.

Jay and Andre Leon Talley kill me. When those two were down with the program for all these years, everything was good being part of the inner circle (and don't tell me they didn't know who these women truly were working for them). But when things go left for them, they wanna cry a river about being tossed away like yesterday's garbage. Bitch bye!

@9:47 ... Exactly. Tara and Anna are "mean girls" and everything was peachy keen when they were mean to other people, but shit got real once they were mean to Jay and Andre. Bye bitch, indeed.

I can't relate to any of these people or their phony, vapid, fake circles and industry. Who really thought any of these fools were genuine. Bitch bye to the lot of you.

How can Tyra send a cease and desist on a book that doesnt have her name or brand attached to it??? Serious question

The cover says a lot. It was a good move to call it a novel.

Btw, don't let men get away with calling you a b*tch, no matter how feminine they act.

It sounds like his coins are low and the industry is not using him any more. He needs a life line like this book. Its called desperate funding. Im sure there are some tells about how much d*ck hes swallowed for job positioning. It happens in the Arts: acting, singers, fashion etc....

I can't with these gay men having buyer's remorse 20+ years later. It was all good when he could tear down other women alongside her but since he's running solo now he wants to kiss and tell. He didn't cry a peep when she was cutting them checks but now all of a sudden it's about a bitch and her wigs? Girl bye. I wouldn't read that trash if it was in the free section at the local Goodwill.

That book cover looks cheesy as sh*t.

I wonder if Mr. Jayzebel Manuel use to work with John Ramirez who use to be in the industry.

Yes it is pretty crappy. But book publishing is extremely expensive and difficult, even more now since people are DIY publishing. Being an author is a rich person's hobby because don't nobody, even somebody as famous, connected, and upper-middle class like Jay Manuel (I'm assuming he is) have the extra money to shell out $5,000-$10,000 for book publishing, printing, and promoting. He probably got what he was willing to afford and I don't blame him. But he still could have gotten a better cover for cheap.
