*She called Tyra Banks fat in 2007 and accused her show “America’s Next Top Model” of being “rigged,” among other offenses, but Janice Dickinson, 60, says she has apologized to her former boss and it’s all water under the bridge.
In an exclusive clip from Saturday’s episode of “Oprah: Where Are They Now,” the former “ANTM” judge talks to Oprah Winfrey about her career as the self-proclaimed “world’s first supermodel” and, later, a reality TV personality.
“I’ve said some pretty bad things about her in the past because I had been fired,” says Dickinson of Banks, 41. “I was very hurt that I had been fired and so I acted out, and that was not when I was acting in a sober-like fashion.”
In hindsight, Dickinson – who publicly dealt with her issues with substance abuse – says, “I loved working with Tyra Banks. It was amazing experience. Tyra is a tough business woman, and she does great TV, and I respect her as a woman.”
“Oprah: Where Are They Now” airs Saturdays (10 p.m. ET) on OWN.
