It's a Tyra-demic!

It's a Tyra-demic! Tyra Banks is expanding her evil/awesome empire you guys! Because America's Next Top Model and her own self-titled chat show have not sufficiently spread the good word of fierce fabulosity, TyTy and her minions are developing yet another show for The CW, to be titled Operation Fabulous. I kid you not! In it, Miss J Alexander and Jay "Inexplicably Married With Kids" Manuel will criss-cross this fine nation of ours and root out all the crimes against fashion and beauty that regular women (ie non models) are committing on the regular. Per that wellspring of info The Hollywood Reporter, "In various towns, the duo will select five participants and give them Top Model-style overhauls -- how to dress, wear their hair and makeup and bring out their confidence with the support of family, friends and their community."

Not to be harsh, but is it wise for anyone to take fashion advice from Jay Manuel, considering he never fails to resemble a Ken doll from the future? It's one thing for him to consult on photo shoots, but I don't think even the most hopeless sartorial trainwreck from Nebraska will be aided by a man who insists on dressing like the guy from Goldfinger.

I get that the focus for this show is supposed to be the ladies getting made fabulous, but I can't help imagining it more along the lines of Green Acres-meets-The Simple Life, with various slapstick scenes in which Jay and J are faced with all sorts of affronts to their glamorous Cosmopolitan personae, at least some of which will involve farm animals and poop. Which, quite honestly, I'd be more than happy to watch.
