Tyra Banks2

She’s quite savvy when it comes to her career and earlier today (August 19), Tyra Banks was hard at work on the set of her show in Chelsea, New York.

The 35-year-old model taped an outdoor segment for “The Tyra Banks Show” and gave some lucky members of the audience a chance to win some cash.

And, just recently, Ms Banks announced via her Twitter page that she will show the world her real hair on the premiere of her show coming up on September 8th.

She explained that there will be “no fake hair at all! Will be the hair coming out of my scalp! 4 all 2 C! No ponytails, no ballet bun hair. hair will be out and free!”

Tyra Banks Stands Tall In The Face Of Criticism

Apr 3, 2009 Author: Admin | Filed under: Tyra Banks

Since America’s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks announced that the upcoming season would be offering spots to young women 5′ 7" and under, the decision has been met with some sharp criticism.
Vogue recently discussed the new height requirements, saying it has been met with strong "derision from the American fashion community."

But Tyra is not one to take criticism sitting down, OK! Magazine reports. At the 20th annual GLAAD media awards in New York, Banks addressed the criticism, noting, "The majority of the fashion industry is about tall girls, but the majority of the fashion industry is not about black women-so with America’s Next Top Model, I opened it for race, and now I’m opening it for height too."
Tyra’s comrades, including Jay Manuel, also came to her defense. "The fashion industry is quite fascinating to me," Manuel added at the GLAAD event. "Typically people will look at a model on the runway and say she has to have a certain physicality, that makes her a potential top model. But this is also the same industry that decided to take short Kate Moss and make her a superstar."
Valid points, Jay. The next Kate Moss could very well be lurking around the corner. Just in time too, because it doesn’t look like she’s in any condition to be photographed anytime soon.

After an NYC casting call for America’s Next Top Model turned ugly Saturday as hundreds of hopefuls were caught in a stampede resulting in three arrests and six injuries, the show’s host and executive producer Tyra Banks tells aspiring models that they will still have a chance to compete.

“To all the Top Model hopefuls who were affected by the New York casting, we are doing everything we can to make sure that ALL the girls who weren’t seen, get an opportunity to audition — we’ll update you on our plans very soon,” Banks told Usmagazine.com in a statement Monday.

Is Tyra Banks Leaving America’s Next Top Model?

tyra-banksAccording to recent rumors, Tyra Banks may not want “to be on top” anymore. Sources say that the producer/host of America’s Next Top Model is saying goodbye to the show for good.

What would have Tyra so up in arms over the hit show, which is currently in cycle 10? Rumor has it a recent squabble between Banks and runway coach Jay Manuel has caused Tyra to limit her involvement with the show. Further speculation hints that recent big score interviews with presidential hopefuls, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Banks’ daytime talk show, The Tyra Banks Show, has turned her focus there. Perhaps it’s also no coincidence that America’s Next Top Model has suffered low ratings this season, competing for air time with reality TV giant American Idol.
