The self-professed "first supermodel" - a claim widely refuted within the industry - Janice Dickinson went on to gain notoriety as an author and reality television diva. A glamour magazine mainstay in the late-1970s and early-1980s, she was a top model with the established Ford Agency before defecting to its upstart young competitor, Elite. Also a party girl supreme, Dickenson was frequently seen on the arm of Hollywood hunks like Warren Beatty and Sylvester Stallone. After years away from the professional modeling world, she returned with a scathing tell-all memoir, followed by a regular stint as a judge on the fashion reality competition, "America's Top Model" (UPN/The CW, 2003- ). Eventually, her sharp tongue and confrontational nature led to her being replaced on the series, although by then Dickinson had been thoroughly embraced as the prima donna everyone loved to hate on the new frontier of reality television. In quick succession, she was featured on a season of "The Surreal Life" (VHI, 2003-06) - notable for her near-violent clashing with fellow reality veteran, Omarosa Manigault - followed by a show of her own, "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency" (Oxygen, 2006-08). And while that venture failed to go the distance, she would return with frequency on such programs as "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" (VH1, 2008-13). Love her or hate her, Dickenson was a survivor in a brutal business not sympathetic to aging beauties.
