She was beautiful, thin and nasty. Yep, Milo had it all.Comedy Central's "Unauthorized Biography: Milo -- Death of a Supermodel" (10 p.m.-10: 30 p.m.) manages to skewer fame, the '70s, supermodels, photography-as-art, punk rock and probably a few other things I didn't pick up on right away. But most of all, it skewers A&E's "Biography" franchise and its penchant for telling the lives of the less-than-deservedly famous.Written by and starring comedian Lizz Winstead, who says she was inspired by a "Biography" of Lance Ito, "Death of a Supermodel" chronicles Milo's life from her childhood in one of those "big square states," through her "discovery" by photographer Hans Peter Christian (who caused an uproar in the New York art scene with his pictures of her nude, covered with spiders)

Two days after Nike outbid it for NBA superstar Kevin Durant, Under Armour signed Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen to represent the brand. Despite the bad news about Durant, the stock market embraced Under Armour's stock Tuesday as shares shot up 4 percent, closing at $71.13 each. The signing of Bundchen reflects the growing importance of the Baltimore sports apparel maker's sales to women. Marketing experts called it a smart move to expand sales to women seeking both performance and style.

Already animated, '70s supermodel Janice Dickinson shifts into overdrive when the camera starts clicking. She grins, she pouts, she climbs up onto a windowsill in spiky three-inch heels. She sprawls, Diane von Furstenberg dress and all, on the tile floor next to the swimming pool at her downtown Chicago luxury hotel. "I'll do anything for a photo," says Dickinson, as she tosses aside her red sandals and descends, still swathed in von Furstenberg, into the water. "I'm the real deal." Three decades after she broke the blond barrier in high fashion, leading the way for a succession of dark-haired, lush-lipped, ethnic-looking supermodels such as Cindy Crawford, Dickinson is back with a new tell-all memoir and all the drama of an old-school diva.

The girls played a game of flag football for charity (but really for a challenge) and had a "bitch fight" (Tyra's words, not mine) with a legit model.

Fierce football For this week's challenge, the ladies played a friendly (read: really harsh and painful-looking) game of flag football in two teams - red and blue - all in the name of charity and getting a fierce photo.

Q: I am an assistant to an attorney and often go with him to court. During my 10 years in the job I've worn suits. Now it appears that dresses are back, and I want to buy two for fall. They must be businesslike and comfortable.What do you suggest?A: I took your question to Hungarian-born New York designer Adrienne Vittadini, whose specialty is knits. When it comes to comfort, she says, knits are unsurpassed. Her suggestion for a working dress is an easy chemise. She does one in navy wool with an argyle pattern in fine red, white and yellow stripes.

I DON'T KNOW about you, but sometimes I walk down the street looking at other women and think: "Fatter than me. Thinner than me. Fatter than me." And I occasionally also think: "Pass the french fries." That's when I spot a woman so fat or so thin I know one more, or one less, french fry is not going to deliver me to either extreme. Nike, Dove and, for heaven's sake, Chicken of the Sea, are taking all the fun out of this game by using female models who are supposed to be, well, as fat as me. Nike is promoting big butts and big thighs in its current ad campaign for women's gear.

HOLLYWOOD-- --Michael Angarano falls into the "he looks familiar" category of actor. The 18-year-old may not be a household name, but his face is recognizable and his performances are often memorable. He was the young Red Pollard in Seabiscuit, the young William in Almost Famous, Meryl Streep's son in Music of the Heart, the teenage son of superheroes in Sky High, Jack's son Elliot on Will & Grace and a champion skateboarder dying of a brain tumor in Lords of Dogtown. It was Angarano's eclectic resume that impressed Alex Steyermark, the director of his newest film, One Last Thing ..., which opened theatrically last week in select cities and debuts on DVD on May 23. "One of the things that impressed me the most were his choices in terms of his films," Steyermark said.

Cindy Crawford trades in her Todd Oldham dresses and Revlon makeup for a pink V-neck sweater and baby powder in her latest project, About Face, a book about how children use their expressive faces to communicate with adults long before they utter their first word. Photogenic toddlers like then-1-year-old Presley Walker Gerber (Crawford's first-born) are shown laughing, crying and goofing around in the 32-page book. Crawford appears throughout as a playful parent, mirroring her son's looks, reciting nonsensical rhymes and encouraging other parents to follow suit.
