This year Selita Ebanks paraded around in her underwear for the casting judges and was not invited back. “Go figure,” she laughed nonchalantly when asked about it at the UNICEF snowflake ball. She has also announced that she will no longer be auditioning for anymore Victoria’s Secret gigs…ever again.
