Enough TYRA!!!

During one of the rare moments I get to watch television, I had the pleasure to catch Tyra Banks' talk show. And her show was about being fat and celebrating Black History Month. Now, I know that some folks are absolutely sick of hearing about February but I had to share this.

Her show centered around it being 10 years since she appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and she was the first black woman to do so (that was her BHM contribution). She decided to put on the same bikini swimsuit she wore on the sports mag's cover. Ten years ago, Tyra was weighed 123 lbs, now she's around 161 lbs (which is about my weight, gasp!)

I guess some folks had said Tyra had gotten a little chubby, so she wanted to prove them wrong. She's been on the covers of zines quoted as saying, "You call this fat?"

So on her show she puts on the same swimsuit she wore 10 years ago and took some pics. In order to do this though, material had to be added to cover the areas that had grown.

Click here to see Tyra ten years ago. And here to see her now.

I think its great that Tyra can be a role model for regular-sized folks like myself. I think its cool that she often tries to encourage young girls to love themselves. But to flaunt around in a bikini and commemorating yourself in the name of BHM is a stretch to me, regardless of the message.

I think I've had enough. Am I alone?

I'll take her either way. I almost hate to admit it, but sometimes I tune into the Tyra Show. But it's just because there's not much else to choose from when you get home from work at midnight. Well, there are those dating shows...

Ashley Northington said...

The thing that really kills me about Tyra's show is that she tries so desperately to relate to everyone. According to her, she's been fat, ugly, poor, robbed, murdered, abused, Hispanic, and murdered...when will it end?

Remember when she cried about the fat suit?

When you think of comfort and coziness you probably aren't thinking about your tennis shoes, or your high heels, your thinking "I have got to get me a pair of those ugg boots"! In traditional black, this shoe is usually a pleasure as well as a treasure.

UGG tried to make those young women stars who were at the beginning of their career walk in its boots on filmfests and awarding ceremonies.|Final "Combing," "Ironing," and "Clipping" then takes place to remove any tangles, burrs, or grass seeds that may be remaining in the wool.
