This probably a good idea because the show had jumped the shark a couple of seasons back. I saw topics on her talk show that were bordering on the idiotic. One was a grown woman who still ate her boogers and another who was in love with and married a bridge. I know you ladies are sad but I am glad. Read details below:
“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. My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are.”
“There’s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart,” Banks writes in an open letter on her website. “And I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.”
Are you guys offended?
Here are some quotes I pulled from HuffPost:
“What happens when men and women from different places come together? Babies! Lots of babies that are from different cultures. A mix. Hapa. Hapa means half in Hawaiian.”
“Every outfit is not necessarily of what that culture is wearing now. It might not even be a necessary exact of what they’ve worn in the past. It’s a fashion interpretation of it.”

That is all I can say about this move on the part of the producers behind Americas Top Model. This is probably going to be their worst season ever because they are tampering with the essence of the show.
Throwing in a transgender wild card to spark ratings is cruel to an average guy like me who loved to see a bunch of pretty women albeit skinny, strutting their stuff with virtually nothing on. Tyra Banks is still sexy but now has morphed into the Anti-Christ!!
I want all our loyal readers to stop this madness and bring back 100 % per cent vagina to ATM.

“America’s Next Top Model” gets underway featuring the show’s first transgender model/contestant Isis, who was born a man but will compete as a woman. The show debuts Wednesday September 3 on The CW, but the network has posted interviews with the contestants on YouTube.
Isis talks about what makes her special and her excitement to compete in hers.
“I think I bring a lot to this competition that might give me an advantage… I’m saying, I really want this… I think I’m creative and unique”

In varying reports it seems that Tyra Banks recent move to NYC has not been the stuff dreams are made of. Coming off of having A-list guests such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on her daytime talk show, there seems to be a stalker who has been showing up at her television studio. This guy has been ordered to stay away from Tyra and will face arrest if he breaks the newly minted order of protection lodged against him.

There are also rumblings that she is not getting along with top model contributor and photo shoot director Jay Samuels. These two divas can’t seem to co-exist and word is she would like to focus more on the daytime faire.
