I like Tyra. She can be over-the-top, but she's real and so transparent about the things she does to make herself look more beautiful.

Tyra, no one cares about you anymore. Take your money and drift into the twilight of your life and leave the rest of the world alone!

who cares
hell maybe you are suffering fro memory loss
you don't remember getting your breast done & keep insisting they are real
although its obvious you have, as you were in your twenties when in the movie higher learning
by then boyfriend/director john singleton. She was flat as a board at the time--and you don't enter puberty and get a d-size breast in your twenties.

she was trying to be oprah! has a mistaken notion that she has depth---think again!

I don't believe that for a second. That said, I admire her business savvy.

Almost clever, but ultimately stupid comment.

Fake Hair, Fake eyes, Fake breast. I'D say, you are not what we think you are. But truthfully, who cares. You have contributed greatly to so many young women disliking who they are; especially, African American women. I would encourage you to just go away!
My comment is not for you racist, right winged, people who encourage the promotion of self hating images as role models, so please save you're viscerally aligned comments for your criticism for articles surrounding our "AMERICAN" President, President Obama. As-well as those that are moderator favorites, like those that are hateful rants towards Blacks, Mexicans, and Gays.
Huffy post moderators seem to love those, but if you say something that is pro-black, you will get censored or have your profile removed. Do any of you wonder why? Look at the comments of the people that have moderator badges. View their profiles. Your eyes will be opened.

Just wish to make a couple of corrections in your comments. I, too, thought there were a few "artificial" items on her. Not so! Yes! She wore (and at times now), wigs, but her hair is actually long. Her eyes are NOT contacts! They are definitely hers. And, the breasts? She always had a little up front. (Check further into her family, early pics and perhaps archives of shows--where she pulled wig off...had hairdresser working her hair right on stage, in front of viewing audience and those present in the studio as well. (And some photos showing the length of hair when very young. Might add, Wendy Williams is another who had extremely long hair. However, very thin she stated.) Pics of Wendy as a girl indicate such.
Now as for Trya and her personality, I cannot speak to that--other than what I've seen on television. I won't judge, because I don't know.

Thank you for responding in such a civil and insightful manner. However, Please youtube her show in which she describes her first boyfriend. I think you will find it quit enlightening. It is on this show that her decision to alter her appearance is explained. This episode also provides the viewer with an understanding as to why she decided to augment much of her physical appearance.
You are correct when you say that she has long hair. However, her hair is extremely thin from all of the perms and straightening products she uses to separate herself from her natural hair. As for her eyes, she has very pretty eyes, however, google her image. You will find her with blond hair and blue contacts. Now if that is natural, I'm pink with purple teeth!
I simply say... Learn to love the person you see in the mirror! It is who you are! Love yourself!

Tyra has her flaws, like anyone posting on this board. But overall I think Tyra is a very good person and she is not at all a tyrant as some have said. She helps people and that was shown on her talk show, though I didn't watch it, my daughter did and she has done a lot for the more unfortunate, for how she is on ANTM well these girls need to have thick skin and if they can't make it on this show then they will never make it as a model in the real world. She is prepping them for that, if they end up going farther, Tyra just gives them the platform and recognition and some do go on to do modeling as well as acting.

I have always liked Tyra but I have never found her to be beautiful or sexy. She is a cute confident super model and very succesful in what she does. I also think she is a good role model to out youth.

Really? As an African American father of little girls, I think it is what she does and says that makes her a less than suitable role model for little " African American" girls in-particular. Her highly polarized presence on television and other mediums, contributes to THE NATURALLY beautiful little girls of color developing a synthesis of thought that says, " Straighten your hair, change your eye color, get breast implants and maybe then you will be accepted. I respectfully agree with the first part of your comment. However, I totally disagree with second part of your post. I do however think, you are bright and insightful and I mean no disrespect.
05:55 PM on 12/06/2011
I appreciate your response but disagree. Tyra's eye color is natural and so are her bobs and she has been wearing her natural hair off and on for years. Black little girls come in all shades and Tyra is a positive representation 4 them. She is one of the few black super models and opened the doors for so many ethnic models.

When have you ever heard about Tyra Banks being locked up or getting in trouble? Never. She has an orgnaization that helps little girls boost of their self esteem, she is a business woman and she represents the black race well.

I am a white woman and I know this stuff affects all little girls and us big girls as well. I never realized how much more it affected girls of color - especially with regard to their hair- until I started teaching.

These images steal our natural ability to find beauty in each other's differences. In reading your comment it hit me that I rarely see an African American model with her natural hair down or done up beautifully in beads like I see our children come to school with. A hairstyle my own straight fine hair would not hold.

I do think Tyra is in a tough spot though. If she did not conform she would not be famous. If she was not famous she would have no platform to promote causes she believes in. It is a tightrope I would not want to walk.

Our ancestors did not have access to massive amounts of photoshopped images that they were then led to believe were true and attainable. Worse this marketing is often targeted towards our children. They too naive to understand that it is not real.

Dont get me started on the "musicians" that sing about all the sex and violence and yet live in upper class suburbia themselves! And Katy Perry singing about getting drunk and kicked out of bars when her husband is in recovery.

WTF?? Get up, stand up!

I always thought tyra was a fake. I just didnt know if it was the tyra show, or nest top model personnal that was fake. On the Tyra show, she encourages women to be themselves, emporwering them to step away from the norms. Then later that same evening on another channel, she forces them into a preconceived mold of 'beautiful and acceptable. She is wetting her beak on both sides of the fountain.

Pretty good analysis. In fact, in my very limited opinion, I would say that you are spot on.
