Louise Watts made America's Next Top Model history this week.

During the judging portion of the episode, the 25-year-old Brit grew irate over the panel's comments, threw a fit, stormed off set in a profane tirade and did not return!

Tensions boiled over after a tense sequence of events in which Louise refused to change hairstyles, then later lost it during Kelly Cutrone's critiquing of her.

What transpired at the end left the judges - Cutrone, Tyra Banks and Cat Deeley - nearly speechless right along with ANTM contestants and viewers alike.

Watch the video below and see the meltdown for yourself:

Janice Dickinson has a message for Tyra Banks: F*ck you! Eat a bag of royal skank!

Indeed, the former America's Next Top Model panelist now takes extreme issue with the show and its host, telling Janice TV at FilmOn.com that The CW competition is "rigged" because "CoverGirl are the ones who choose the model - not any of the judges."

The show made headlines this week when Lisa D'Amato was named the first winner of America's Next Top Model: All-Stars, following the dismissal of finalist Angelea Preston, reportedly because she leaked spoilers prior to the finale.

"The fact of the matter is [Tyra Banks] makes like $90 million," Dickinson said. "She makes a lot of money per year still hawking that franchise worldwide - they're doing it in every country - and it's CoverGirl who chooses the winner."

In response to this allegation, The CW has released a simple statement that reads: "This is completely untrue."

America's Next Top Model courted some major controversy on its season finale tonight, as finalist Angela Preston was disqualified... with little explanation provided.

Sources say she was given the boot for leaking spoilers about the cycle, while some go as far as to validate this claim... and add that she was actually named the winner, until The CW was forced to reshoot the finale. The network, meanwhile, simply said in a statement:

"After production wrapped on the current cycle of America's Next Top Model, we learned information that made Angelea ineligible and she was subsequently disqualified from the competition. As a result, new scenes were filmed to address this for the audience during the finale."

That shocking development resulted in a rather anti-climactic conclusion, but Lisa D'Amato took home the crown after dominating on the runway.

For winning the first-ever All-Stars cycle, Lisa earned a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl, along with a spread in Vogue Italia and a guest correspondence role on Extra.

"It's crazy! It's absolutely crazy! I feel incredible," said the 30-year old after hearing her name called as the champion. "To be honest, my confidence actually comes from a very vulnerable place. It's not that I'm over-confident. It's just that I have to life myself up every day. I have a lot to prove. I feel like the universe finally came around for me and I'm not going to let anybody down. I won America's Next Top Model All Star. It's pretty damn cool."

André Leon Talley is out. Kelly Cutrone will soon be in.

There's been a judging shake-up on America's Next Top Model, all sides confirm, as the fashion publicist who appeared on The Hills will join the panel for cycle 18 next year.

"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," says Cutrone, who owns People's Revolution. "Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."

CariDee English is a former America's Next Top Model champion, having taken home that show's top prize in December 2006.

So what better source to go to for scoop on the current All-Star cycle?

"It gives the former contestants a chance to win the title, which is amazing to watch because the girls really know now what it feels like to let the title slip through their hands," English told THG of the format. "So all of them are bringing their A game and it's exciting to watch the veterans at Top Model winner war again!"

She was dubbed The Girl from the Trailer Park when Cycle 16 of America's Next Top Model premiered.

But following an intense season finale, there's only one thing viewers can now call Brittani Kline: champion. The 19-year old from Beech Creek, Pennsylvania cat-walked her way to victory last night over 22-year old Molly.

Does Brittani Kline deserve the America's Next Top Model crown?

The finalists met with IMG's vice president Ivan Bart on the finale, posed for a Cover Girl photo shoot/commercial and were also left with short haircuts following a surprise makeover.

Told her shots were "divine" and chosen as the winner, Brittani was in tears at the end of the episode. She told everyone:

"Never give up, because right after you were about to give up, something great really happens... Everything I've ever done has finally paid off!

Should Ann Ward have been crowned America's Next Top Model? Yes, according to a majority of THG readers who voted in this poll.

But the 6'2" beauty wasn't nearly as confident heading into this week's finale against Chelsey Hersley. In an interview with The New York Post yesterday, Ward said:

"I really thought Chelsey was doing better. It’s still unbelievable that I was even a part of the competition. It just goes to show that even if you are different, you can turn those negatives into really unique positives to be proud of."

Amen, Ann. Watch the 19-year old talk about her victory at length in the following video:

"I'm really upset. I feel cheated. I feel like I have the whole package, what it takes to be America's Next Top Model and I don't think Ann does." - Cycle 15 runner-up Chelsey

Are these the misguided, bitter words of a second-place finisher? Or the accurate assessment of the woman who fell to Ann Ward on last night's season finale of this CW competition?

You tell us! We've posted photos below of both the cycle 15 champion and the contestant who clearly felt she wore her Roberto Cavalli better on the finale. Does Chelsey have a compelling case?

This absolutely epic, historic, life-altering cycle 15 finale of America's Next Top Model aired last night.

As over-hyped by Tyra Banks ("Do you understand how serious this is?" she asked. "This is Top Model – elevated."), the concluding episode pitted Ann against Chelsey, as the women competed to earn a spread in Italian Vogue.

In the end, the woman who dominated from the beginning - winning five back-to-back photo challenges - was crowned the season's champion. Our congratulations go out to 19-year old Ann Ward!

"I'm so happy that I can make my parents proud," said the 6'2" model, who endured many taunts about her size and gangly figure. "I won! I can't believe any of this right now."

If self-serving blow hard Tyra Banks had her way, she'd name herself America's Next Top Model every year.

Fortunately, that's against this show's rules, which meant good things for Krista White last night.

The 26-year-old from Pine Bluff, Arkansas beat out Raina Hein in the finals and was reduced to tears when her name was announced as the winner.

"I can't believe it. I want to pinch myself," said White. "Nobody thought it would be me. For me, to be from the small Pine Bluff with maybe 100 or something people where nobody ever leaves. It's amazing ... I'm excited I'm America's Next Top Model."

Of course, someone has to tell Angela that the competition is over - and she lost.

"I know America loves me," the self-promoting finalist said after being eliminated. "Even though I'm not in the final two, I'm still America's Next Top Model."

Except that you aren't.

Banks referred to White as "the embodiment of a top model." As the winner, she receives a contract with Wilhelmina Models; a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics; and a six-page spread in Seventeen.

Were you happy Krista won?
