Today, for the first time, I watched the Tyra Banks Show. I was not pleased. Is it just me or is she possibly more annoying than Rachel Ray? This particular show was her crash course in ‘Fashionology’ which was clearly for the mentally challenged. I got through the Baby Phat/Kimora Lee Simmons ‘behind the scenes’ segment without actually tossing my cookies, but it was hard. Tyra kept interrupting with annoying comments like "remember, I was at your after-party?" "The clothes look different 6 months later when they are in the stores." Well, the Baby Phat clothes were awful! I digress, Tyra’s self-admiration, exaggerated facial and body movements and girlfriend slang became too much to bare and I had to stop watching. I wanted to stick pins in my eyes.
Look, Tyra is still gorgeous and was a great model, but I just wish she would be quiet. Models should model, actors should act and singers should sing. When they start crossing into designing and politics…it gets annoying and sometimes sad.
This, however, I can NOT stop watching! Click here to see the funniest damn spoof on Tyra’s ‘America’s Top Model’ by Saunders and French. I miss Ab Fab, but this almost makes up for the fifteen minutes of my life I will never get back enduring that horrid show this morning. Enjoy.
