TYRA MAIL! Thinking #ANTM #cycle22 should be our last cycle. Yeah, I truly believe it's time. Our diehard fans know we've expanded the definition of beauty, presented what Flawsome is, tooched and booched and boom boom boomed, shown the world how to show their neck, rocked couture/catalogue/commercial poses, have found our (and your) light, strutted countless runways, gone on tons of go-sees, added guys to the girls mix, and have traveled around the globe and back again. Yeah, it's time. It really is. Wow, I am SO proud of what Top Model has done. #ANTM brought the intimidating modeling world to the masses. We were the first reality show based in the fashion world. I never thought my little idea would have people everywhere thinking differently about how they take photos. And I never thought we'd do 22 cycles. Whoa! So many!!! And what rhymes with 22? You. And you and you and you and you! YOU made Top Model what it is. We are a global force that has so many international versions around the world because of YOU! That's amazing and beyond anything that I ever dreamed. I set out to create a show where Perfect is Boring. So I hope you continue to love your freckles, your moles, your big forehead, your big eyes, your small eyes, your pointy chin, your tiny boobs, your full chest, your ivory or ebony skin (or every color in between) – the stuff about you that makes you well…you. And I hope you've learned a heck of a lot from watching. I have an inkling you have. May your photos (and selfies) be forever fierce. May you always find your light. And may you werk hallways like runways. Always remember, you are beautiful & BOOTYful. And please, keep on Smizing each and every day for TyTy. Fierce & Love, 💛Tyra

SportsCenter host Scott Van Pelt told it like it is when he gave a heartfelt monologue to remind people that Lamar Odom is more than just “A Kardashian Reality Star.” SVP was equally as upset after seeing a tweet from Bun B slamming those who referenced Lamar as just a cast member of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, when in reality he was a championship basketball player before he joined the reality show. Lamar is currently hospitalized after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Monday.

“We knew his name before he ever got married on TV,” the host said. Great job, SVP.

We love bringing you really cool things like this, and if you’re in the New York area, we have a treat. If you’re a runner, fitness buff, or film freak, figure out how to see The High: Making The Toughest Race On Earth, the remarkable true-story of a high-stakes Himalayan ultra-race over the two highest motorable passes in the world.

A Runner’s Film Marathon will take over New York’s SVA Theater on 10/26, with The High being the anchor of the trio of running movies, which will also include The Runners and The Last Time I Heard Silence. Director of The High, Barry Walker, is geeked about premiering his movie in NYC.

“I’m pumped to have this chance to premiere my film in New York the week leading into the best marathon on the planet,” said Walton. “It’s beyond thrilling.”

The trailer is equally as thrilling, check it out above.
