Angelea About ANTM Disqualification: “The Truth Will Come Out”
Why was Angelea Preston disqualified from America's Next Top Model: All Stars? It's the question that never goes out of style — mostly because no one ever feels like giving a direct answer. But at least now Angelea herself is giving some hints.
Back in February, Angelea praised her ANTM experience and congratulated Lisa D’Amato for winning the All-Stars cycle on their second attempt at getting a winner. But Angelea also seemed to hold a grudge against ANTM. The Buffalo, N.Y. native tweeted on March 1, “@cw_network please don't use me in your commercials in Buffalo to get girls to come to auditions for that bulls**t show. Thank u ! :)”
Late last month, we were the first to report that Angelea is now married and pregnant. She talked to UsMagazine.com about her pregnancy and how she recently signed with the Expecting Models to do maternity work.
As for her disqualification from ANTM, after they had already shot an original finale, Angelea noted cryptically, "part of the truth has come out already about the original outcome, and I believe that the rest of the truth will come out later."
What do you think is the partial truth — that Angelea was the original winner, as many have speculated? What’s the rest of the truth? Why was she disqualified? Did she really spill the beans online about having won, as rumored, although shot down by the president of Model Management Group? Could it really have been because of her pregnancy? She said she found out “around Christmastime” that she was pregnant, and the finale — with new footage of Lisa vs. Allison Harvard, without Angelea — aired on December 7. It wasn’t a live finale, so they had to have shot that footage at some point before the first week of December.
Maybe ANTM Cycle 19 should skip the college theme and become a crime procedural to answer the question Why Was Angelea Preston Disqualified? — with Cycle 20 being Why Didn’t Allison Harvard Win After Angelea Was Disqualified? Then maybe they’ll get the ratings they want!
Catch the premiere of ANTM Cycle 20 on Friday, August 2 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
