"America's Next Top Model" has dissociated itself from Curry (and vice versa), having not mentioned her in any episodes since Season 2 (where she guest-starred in an episode).

Curry also stated that Banks was fake, claiming the supermodel was the nicest person in the world when the camera was on, but once it wasn't she became "Naomi Campbell in your face."
