So It’s True

Tyra Banks announced on Twitter yesterday that her talk show is ending after the 5th season, which I think is weird since it just moved to the CW network. I have a love/hate relationship with Tyra. I am happy for all of the things that she has achieved, but I feel like she can seem somewhat phoney and fake at times.

According to People Magazine:

“This will be the last season of The Tyra Show,” Banks tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.”

Wrapping at the end of its fifth season in the spring of 2010, it will be lights out for the show that brought viewers memorable weave-exposing, cellulite-revealing and tear-jerking moments.

Banks will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, a N.Y.-based film production company currently reviewing possible projects. Sticking to her mission, Banks aims to bring “positive images of women to the big screen,” says an industry insider.

  1. I completely agree. Tyra has accomplished a lot, especially for young black women, but the extremes she goes to sometimes are so over-the-top that she can't be taken seriously. Which is sad.

  2. I totally agree, Tyra has done some pretty great things but sometimes she can be a little to fake. I dont watch her show so this doesn;t really matter to me…
