Want to know how to piss off an entire apartment building in New York City? Just ask Tyra!

The supermodel started remodeling her four apartment penthouse last May and almost a year later it's still not finished!

Residents at the Riverhouse were originally told a majority of the construction would be completed by October, but now that it's dragged on for another 6 months they want to be compensated as much as $100,000 for the noisy inconvenience.

They were, of course, denied.

Poor Tyra.

First her talk show was canceled, now it looks like America's Next Top Model might be next!

According to MediaWeek, ANTM's ratings are down 39% compared to one year ago.

Ouch.

Maybe after 16 cycles it's time to call it quits.

| Filed under: TV NewsTyra BanksJimmy FallonBusiness Blitz

Last month we told you Tyra Banks was attending Harvard University.

The business mogul enrolled in the school’s Executive Education Owner/President Management Program.

And during a recent taping with Jimmy Fallon, Tyra opens up about her college life and living at the dorms!

She reveals:

"We do live in dorms. I have my own room. So I have my own bedroom but we share a kitchen, a living room, a study area. It's mandatory dorms. I freaked out in the beginning.

I was like, 'Oh yes, I'm going to Harvard and I'll be at the Four Seasons down the street.' And they were like, 'Girl, you're going to be living in dorms.'

I was like, 'What?' I freaked, freaked, freaked out. And now I wouldn't have it any other way. It's like summer camp!"

Check out more from Tyra in the clip above!

If Madonna can do it, so can TyTy.

Tyra Banks — Harvard Girl?

| Filed under: ModelsTyra BanksBusiness Blitz

tyra-banks-enrolls-in-harvard-course.jpg

Tyra Banks isn’t just a pretty face.

She’s also a model, reality star, business woman, and now she has a Harvard education. Well, partial education anyway.

Earlier this month, Mz Banks was spotted throughout Boston and at Harvard, visitng its dining halls and the Business School campus.

The purpose?

Tyra enrolled in the school’s Executive Education Owner/President Management Program.

Jacqueline Baugher, director of the OPM program, reveals the program usually attracts “presidents and CEOs of companies with sales from anywhere between five million to several billion dollars.”

The program, which usually has about 200 students, consists of a three week session yearly for three years. And one session isn’t cheap as it costs $31,000!

Tyra also took to her Twitter account and posted a few photos of her in some Harvard attire, adding:

"Enriching my mind with these amazing buddies! They are sooooo intelligent! Geniuses!!!"

Looking good, Ty!

Paulina Porizkova Is Upset About Not Getting Invited To Fashion Week

Looks like former model Paulina Porizkova is upset about not being on the "popular list."

The often outspoken Paulina says she hasn't managed to get tickets to Fashion Week for the past two years. She reveals:

"I can't get tickets. Ever since then, I haven't bothered to try. But sitting in front of the stage watching the girls is too hard to watch. It's like actors watching other actors work — you either get jealous, or you get mortified for them."

Just a wild guess but maybe it has something to do with her calling Janice Dickinson a tranny?

Or maybe that she was trash talking Tyra Banks' America’s Next Top Model show?

Or that she was bad mouthing Naomi Campbell? Or claiming Gisele Bundchen isn’t much into modeling anymore?

Wait, it has to be the fact that Anna Wintour doesn’t like her! If you’re not in Anna’s good graces, you might as well consider yourself exiled from the modeling community. Right?

Either way, no one likes a whiner…. just saying.

On a positive note, she is looking pretty darn fabulous for being 45-years-old!
