Tyra Banks Wants To Turn A Plus-Size Teen Into A Model

Tyra Banks might be ending her talk show, but that doesn't mean she's out of ideas. Tyra recently announced her latest project -- a modeling competition for plus-size teens only, called the Fiercely Real Teen Model Search. "I've always felt it was my mission to expand the narrow perceptions of beauty ... I…

Boo! Tyra Banks Is Ending “The Tyra Show” This Year

Bummer, dude! Tyra Banks has announced that after five years of fierceness, this season of "The Tyra Show" will be her last. No more period shows? No more slut-shaming sexually active teen girls? No more women who hit their boyfriends? No more trampling fetishes? And worst of all, no…

Judge Shake-Up On “ANTM” Sounds Too Far-Fetched To Believe

Back when former supermodel Paulina Porizkova was ousted from her position as judge on "America's Next Top Model," we gave you our dream replacement list that included Naomi Campbell, Agyness Deyn, and Kate Moss. Never did we imagine that Kimora Lee Simmons would return to the show as a…

Miss J Reveals He’s A Father On “Tyra”

"Runway diva coach extraordinaire," Miss J. Alexander, who is promoting his book Follow the Model, was on "The Tyra Show" yesterday and gave what was actually a totally refreshing and interesting interview. I was surprised, frankly, because Miss J plays such a caricature on "America's Next Top Model," and I didn't expect to see…

Eddie Murphy Will Join Tyra On “Top Model” Finale

Oh, "America's Next Top Model," how we wish you were still a good show! Too bad two more people are about to be dragged down by this show. A CW source has revealed that Eddie Murphy (as if he could get any lower after denying he fathered Scary Spice's baby) will appear alongside…

Tyra Banks Celebrates Halloween As A Kardashian

At first glance, it may seem like Tyra isn't looking any different than she usually does on the Halloween episode of her show (which airs tomorrow). But then you may notice that her booty is a little curvier, her hair a tad darker and waved just so, and her stance eerily familiar. There's clearly a…

Tyra Jumps On The Blackface Bandwagon

ET Online has posted photos from tonight's (?) episode of "America's Next Top Model" in which Tyra has the models, uh, transform to look biracial, which means many of them pose with blackface. So hot right now! Of course, if Tyra were writing this post, she would be quick to remind us that she…

Today’s Lady News: Tyra Does A Show On Women Who Hit Their Boyfriends

Yesterday, Tyra Banks did a show on "battered men syndrome," about when women hit their boyfriends. OK, Tyra, listen up: While physical abuse is just as wrong when it happens to men, the fact is woman-on-man violence is not representative of the actual face of domestic violence. According to the America…

Girl Talk: Is A Lack Of Physical Attraction Really A Cover-Up For Other Relationship Issues?

On yesterday's episode of "The Tyra Show," Tyra spoke with a married couple who were barely having sex because the woman no longer felt attracted to her husband. She said she wasn't attracted to him since he put on weight and admitted that when they did have sex, all she could think about was getting…

Tyra Makes Bank!

Forbes has released its annual list of "Prime-Time's Top-Earning Women." And who wants to be on top? Tyra Banks out-posed the competition, earning $30 million last year—almost twice as much as uber-annoying Katherine Heigl, who clocked in at number two in the survey at $18 million. I couldn't even pick the…

Tyra Banks Drops 30 Pounds, Sends Mixed Messages To Young Fans

When I watched our own Kiki T. on "Tyra" yesterday I noticed something quite different from the last time I watched the show nearly year ago: Tyra was one skinny bitch! Huh, I thought, When did that happen? Didn't she famously tell everyone to kiss her fat ass not too long ago? I thought…

Today was a great day! Two of the people I would most like to have sitting at my table at a dinner party appeared on TV together! That's right, our own Astrosexologist, Kiki T., appeared on "Tyra"! Kiki sat down with the wackadoodle talk show host to talk about the astrological signs that are most…

Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff, And The 90 Bazillion Guest Stars On CW Shows

The CW has gone guest-star crazy!

Hilary is Dan's new love interest; she plays actress Olivia Burke who enroll…

It’s All Tears On Tyra’s Teens And Parents Sex Summit

My love-hate relationship with "The Tyra Show" strikes again: Yesterday Tyra hosted her first-ever Teens and Parents: Sex Summit all about teen sex. Alas, calling it a "summit" is a rather grand way to describe 13-, 14- and 15-year-old girls dishing about the dozens of boys they've slept with, while…

“The Tyra Show” Allegedly Coached A Guest To Say Racist Things

Meet Vecente. He was a guest on "The Tyra Show" for the judgment day episode and said some really hateful and hurtful things about another guest because the guest has dark skin. As you can see from the video above, Vecente makes some statements that are really infuriating, but he reportedly claims the show's producer…

Tyra’s First-Ever Period Show Was Bloody Fantastic!

I can think of lots of momentous events I wouldn't want human pit bull/Baby Phat designer Kimora Lee Simmons around for -- and inserting a tampon in my coochie for the very first time is one of them. But on "The Tyra Show"'s first-ever program all about periods, Tyra Banks shared how,…

There's always at least one crazy (in addition to Tyra) on each season cycle of "America's Next Top Model" and if you watched last night's premiere, you know that person for cycle 13 was Amber. Amber was doing "ANTM" for Jesus. Yes, Jesus. Jesus wanted her to be on a CW modeling show to…
