The Taming of Tyra
I am absolutely disgusted at how much controversy there is over Tyra Banks gaining weight.
While I did notice she had packed on a few pounds during the last season of ANTM, I pretty much forgot about it. But sadly, I see that no one else has.
I, for one, commend her on talking about the issue on her show and for showing everyone that she has the ability to laugh at herself. She's spent years with self-image issues and is now older and wise enough to know that she doesn't need to please anybody but herself!
And for all the critics, HELLO! Tyra's a retired model so who are we to be harsh just because she doesn't want to fit into an impossible standard? Since when did being a sex symbol, model, etc. mean that you have to maintain it for the rest of your life just to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye? It's pathetic and unrealistic.
Critics, negative people, haters and all others who apply, just let it go and stop wasting your breath! Tyra's weight is fine and as long as she's comfortable with it, that's all that matters.
