Tyra Banks is a disgrace. She invented an alter ego that caters to the lowest of the low and what women's rights organizations have worked so hard for! She has been given every advantage and more and instead of using them for something decent, greedily exploited all she could.

Tyra Banks is not the only graduate of IHHS whose parents were divorced and whose mother had to work hard. She has exploited and exagerrated her upbringing like she has all else. She also appears to have an unhealthy, dependent relationship with her mother (who appears to be a vain publicity seeker, just like her daughter).
I believe Tyra said her father was in the picture and contributed child support. So, she had much more than many of her classmates whose fathers were not supporting them for whatever reason!

I am sick of Tyra Banks. She is pushing 40 and needs to disappear from the public view. Her 15 minutes was up long ago and now she's trying to reinvent herself but don't buy it. Her character was formed years ago and believe me, she won't be changing now at her age.

Sorry, meant to say she caters to everything women's rights is against but reaps all the benefits along with her mother.

CUT THE APRON STRINGS and go to the Bosley Hair Implant Center. Your forehead was an oddity to begin with but is looking mighty fugly as you have aged out!

Read someplace recently she'd gone back to school and I think it was Harvard. My oh my that school must take anyone these days or look what money can buy. How many qualified students were rejected because of Tyra Banks?

I cannot believe she qualified for acceptance since she was not a genius in high school and graduated many years ago!

the best way to shut some of these FAKE non characters is to turn the tv off of their fake BS show!

Tyra is like her name Tired and she is getting ugly she told one truth she needs to re-invent herself quickly before her checking account get tired!

As for Tyra, Kardashians, Wendy too these women give talk tv a bad rap. Their shows are boooooring, don't even watch them it is not worth the time or tape!

This beotch showed her REAL SELF when she so angrily and crudely told the audience they could "kiss her big fat black ass!" as Ms. Fatso proceeded to parade around in a bathing suit. That, folks, is the real Tyra Banks.

Then, I do remember the best time I ever saw her when, after that performance, she had the nerve to go on "The View." Karma really payed her a visit when she did some dumb thing like sit on the back of a couch and the whole thing fell overbackwards with Fatso on it because it couldn't support the heiffer's weight. This was several years ago when she was thinking she was going to be the next Oprah.

These shows, like you say, have RUINED TV talk. I can't think of a good one. IMO it is these black women who think they are so great who ruin everything as they are not talented nor smart enough to carry a talk show without inserting the ghetto talk, behavior, stupid shout-outs. Thanks Barbara Walters for hiring Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd after getting rid of Rosie O'Donnell. Sharon Osborne and her daughter are two more that I cannot stomach for more than about ten minutes once a month if that often.

Condoleeza Rice made a graceful appearance this a.m. on the "View" and was she a class act when she described how she learned from the OLD WHITE MEN these others degrade. Someone like she would make an excellent talk show hostess. There are far too many wannabes that need to go.

Oh and I'd start with eliminating Kelly Ripa immmediately. She thinks she has her own show now that she and Gilman forced Regis out but she is as sickening as all the others.
