Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid has been cancelled. It’s one thing for a TV show to be cancelled during their first season. It’s another thing entirely when that show has all of it’s remaining episodes burned off in a very undesirable time slot. That is what is going on with Making A Model With Yolanda Hadid. After airing the first four episodes of the show, the final four season will be burned off on Sunday morning, February 11th from 10 am to 2 pm. You really can’t find a worse timeline than that as Lifetime runs infomercials overnight, followed by church on Sunday morning.
I missed the fourth episode, the dreaded makeover episode somehow. Thursday nights are full of great TV and this show just didn’t have the ratings. I can’t find any record of what the ratings are because apparently they were so bad they didn’t even make the ratings website. I guess I was the only one enjoying the show.
The good news for those of you in the UK is that is just premiered there on Sky, so apparently they are hoping y’all like it. It will also be airing in some Asian countries. The girl’s reaction to the news is kind of funny. Breanna is claiming it was moved to a Sunday marathon because that is when young people watch TV.
Lil Yan, says, “Being on a TV show has it’s perks but what so many don’t understand is it’s really hard to be vulnerable. Letting down your walls, the one’s you built for protection because so many people have hurt you. Showing all of you my imperfections & flaws while trying to work hard & live out my dreams hasn’t been easy. SO many people have judgements & hate but, the one thing I can say about my journey is that I’VE BEEN REAL flaws & all. I’ve realized even more that I AM ENOUGH & this path is mine to walk out no one else’s. I can’t wear a mask for you to like me, I have to have the courage to be authentically me. I hope your brave enough to do the same, because we aren’t doing the world any favors by being anything other than how God created us.” Except when it comes to hair color and eye color it would appear. She went straight back to blonde after Yolanda had her dye it brown during episode four. She has left off the colored contacts in many of her more recent photos though.
Yolanda really rode Athena’s mom hard especially on episode four and Athena defended her on her Instagram, “This has been an amazing experience for my mom and I. We have learned a lot together. She has sacrificed so much for me so that I could pursue my dream. To all the people that think that I will do better without my Mom, because you’re judging who she is by what you see on TV, remember that it is a show. You have no idea what she has been through for my siblings and I. At the end of the day my relationship with God and my family will always come before my goals and dreams. I love you Momma and I appreciate everything you’re doing for me.” I really thought that Athena’s mom was doing a great job supporting her kid on the show.
Breanna won episode four and high praise from Yolanda on her go see with IMG. We just barely got a glimpse of Carrington at the end of episode four. She claimed that she has over two million followers on social media. She has 750K followers on IG, It’s hard to tell what Twitter account is hers because there are lots of fake ones but none of them have many followers.
The girls found out on Wednesday that the show was being dumped. Some of them were already publicizing the episode that was supposed to be on last night on social media.
I realize no one cares, but I will be bingeing the last four episodes on Sunday and will tell you how it all plays out whether you want to know or not! That said, I could use one less show right now. There is so much airing right now it is hard to recap it all!
