A 'Top Model' on drugs?

I was watching 'Entertainment Tonight' and they were showing a preview for the upcoming season of Dr. Phil, and in the preview they showed a certain former ANTM alum is addicted to something.



It was Jael from Cycle 8. It was only a short preview so I didn't see much of her, but her hair was long and blonde (not the way it was on the show before her makeover, but actually long, past her shoulders) and her face looked very sunken. I didn't hear her say anything, but Dr. Phil said to her, "do you know this is a crap way to live?" and she was crying and it was sad to see her like this.

I am not a proponent of the theory that ambushing and humiliating someone on national television is an appropriate therapeutic technique. Yes, Jael appears to be in bad shape, but I don't think this is helpful. My heart goes out to her.

yep. makes for dramatic TV, but also super unfairly fucks with people. Dr. Phil is the lowest of the low.

I agree. Dr. Phil focuses more on making good tv than on actually helping people.

She was a mess on the show too. Also she had to deal with people's deaths on the show which couldn't have been easy. I hope she gets the help she needs.

her friend died of an overdose while she was on the show, and you could tell she was doing drugs then too.

I remember thinking that she was on drugs during her cycle. I wish that I had been wrong. This is heartbreaking.

I really liked Jael when she was on the show. This is really sad and I hope she gets the help she needs.

I know I saw a post somewhere a few years ago talking about her crashing a party and just being GONE and I think she had blue hair at the time?

I do hope she manages to beat this, though. But, it seems like it's been going on long enough that she might have a REALLY hard time with it.

None of the pics work anymore, but there's a bit of a write-up at the top.

The "ruined 'guess who?' post" tag made me smile.

And then I watched that video clip. Absolutely depressing. I hope she gets the help that she needs and will be okay.

Oh, Jesus. Oh, Jael...

God, she looks so bad. And she was a beautiful girl. I hope someone can help her, she was such a free spirit. I always wondered, even back to C8 if she was on something or recovering from something because she could be quite erratic.

And I still hate Half Dollar for pushing her in the pool. I don't care if she was annoying, he shouldn't have put his hands on her.

As Jael was my fave in s8, it's so sad that she's gone down this road. I hope she gets help.

It kinda seemed like she was on something during the run of the show, so this doesn't surprise me all that much. But I do hope she gets proper help before she kills herself.

i agree... when the show aired she made some sort of comment in an interview that she "acts like that naturaly and isnt on drugs" -- and we all were like yea RIGHT

yeah, on the show she always seemed a bit 'off' to me, but i usually just was like 'nah, if she was on drugs she wouldn't be on the show' so i just tried not to believe it...
