Seems to me that, if you're an interviewer who expects people to answer your questions, you should answer questions from other interviewers -- especially if you consented to the interview.
Banks and her PR handler committed one of the worst communications Fumbles in recent memory. She was asked by McFadden about being criticized by former models Paulina Porizkova and Janice Dickenson, both of whom were once cast members on Banks’ show America’s Next Top Model. Porizkova, for example, claimed she was fired from the show on her birthday, that Banks ignored her off camera and that Banks was up to 6 hours late at times for the show’s judges’ panel. The video, click here, is worth watching. Banks’ response to McFadden’s question was silence. She smiled and arched her eyebrows. Meanwhile, off camera, her publicist, Lisa Israel, is heard telling McFadden: “Lets not go there.” ABC chose to identify Israel by name on screen, although she is not seen. And with the cameras still rolling, McFadden looks over angrily and tells Israel: “Well, I am going there. I am going to go there.”
But what really bugs me about this clip is not what Tyra Banks says by not answering but what the entire sequence suggests ... but not in so many words.
