Think you've seen it all on America's Next Top Model? Ha! "In the first episode we're going to throw a monkey wrench in it," show creator and executive producer Tyra Banks told us at the opening of Disney California Adventure's Tower of Terror ride. "The second one is going to be an even bigger monkey wrench! That's all I can say. (This series) is just monkey-wrench-heavy. I'm not going to make them cry. They're just sensitive girls and they just freak out and cry every day." Anything else we need to know about the show, airing in the fall? "I can't say who, but there is going to be a new judge who's going to give Janice (Dickinson) a run for her money," Banks said. "A very strong personality who's not intimidated and who has a very strong fashion sense. He really understands models." Hmmm, does that mean he's America's Next Simon Cowell? Stay tuned...
"We've had a rough year and I finally think we've got trouble out of our system." That's what we hear from Ozzy Osbourne, who talked with us at the recent 2004 Covenant with Youth Dinner, benefiting the Covenant House California. "I'm starting to feel better. Sharon's all better. The kids are better. It's time to go back to work. I am going to go out with Ozzfest again. I think I'm doing well enough to go. I'm not 100 percent, but I'm good. I'm back to running. I ran three miles yesterday. I'm building myself up for the tour. ... Sharon keeps going, 'No jumping around anymore.' But you might as well retire me. That's my place up there."
A Toast to Frasier
We always like to bring you diet news from the stars, so ... "I was talking to David Hyde Pierce the other day, and he was telling me about the South Beach Diet," Frasier's Kelsey Grammer told us recently at the PAX upfront presentation. "He said that when he wants to have a piece of toast for breakfast, he's supposed to put a little butter on it. I looked at him and I said, 'Well, that's how my grandparents used to eat it!' So my family figured out 100 years ago a way to eat that's hot now."
