‘America’s Next Top Model’s Cycle 22 beauty Mame (above) is currently on course to becoming one of the show’s fastest rising stars.
Unfortunately, she now stands as one of many ‘Top Models’ who have received a warning from one of its past winners.
What she’s telling them.
Beware of Tyra
Ms. Angelea Preston won the 17th cycle of the hit TV show but soon found herself working as an escort when editing on the series worked against her.
Tyra exploits women, period. Once she gets out what she wants from you, then you’re done to her. You’re nothing. She preaches on TV that she’s just like you, that she helps girls, but she doesn’t help girls. She exploits them. Nobody wanted to work with me after the show. was labeled a bitch and super ghetto, so when I would walk into agencies, a lot of them recognized me from the show. The show exploited my personality in such a negative way that it stopped my career from flourishing.
Unable to work Preston supported herself by working as an escort and soon learned that the show’s production company had discovered her secret.
Then, under the guise that they were concerned about her well-being offered her a spot on their All Star season following what she describes as an “intervention.”
Alas, the network stripped her of a title when they discovered what she says production already knew and she now claims Tyra did nothing to support her when that happened.
I think why they took it from me, is because it makes their show look like the crock of **** that is. If I had escorted before I came on the show, they would have used it to further exploit me. They would say, ‘Hey, she was an escort, but we put her on America’s Top Model, and we made her great.’ But because it happened after, how could they say their show created such a great opportunity for me, when it didn’t? It lead me into a path that I wasn’t supposed to travel down, coming off a show like that.
It gets worse.
For, Preston also claims that after feeling extremely ill on set she woke up to find Banks sitting before asking her if she was OK. She wasn’t. Why?
The model claims that show runner Ken Mok hid the medication that had been sent to her so that he could capture the dramatic episode on camera.
