Tyra told to drop pounds

This story is so unlikely to be true, but I'm posting it because if it is for real, it's beyond shocking. According to media reports, the CW network has told reality and talk show host Tyra Banks to lose weight, citing ratings as their justification. A producer for the network told mediatakeout.com, "Tyra still looks good, but she's put on close to 50 pounds since starting her talk show...things are really getting out of control. I mean, she doesn't have the greatest personality, so if she starts getting too heavy, it could be a real problem for the show. Whey you see [Tyra] next to the girls on the show, you realize how much weight she's put on...it's almost ridiculous."

She definitely has put on lots of weight. I remember when she first started the show and quit modeling soon after, she said she gained about 20 lbs. Than the second season she started looking thinner and supposedly lost 10 lbs. But now she's looking heavier again. She's still not fat, but she could lose some weight and look better.

I like her personality though, she's funny.

Talk to your friend, Nicole Richie, she'll give you the down low on hot to lose a lot of weight fast.

Ummm...I don't really agree. She looks pretty thin. Yeah she looks rounder than all those other supermodels, but if she loses weight, she'd disappear into thin air.

I think Tyra looks great, not everyone needs to be 90 pounds. People have something to say wrether you weigh 90lbs or 140lbs, and we wonder why teens have such an image problem! She's not modeling panties anymore so who cares if she gains a few pounds! I am so sure that everyone at the network all have perfect bodies, right?

She'd be hot at any weight, since she has the confidence. I really don't see why television people promote the skinny "ideal" that encourages girls to get anorexic. Really.

I think that Trya has self image as well as self esteem issues. Why else does she feel the need to explain herself on national tv to anyone? Did I mention that she would be wearing the same bathing suit that she got cautht in? To me its pathetic!!!! What she should be discussing is weather or not she enjoyed he water and the wheather on the beach. Not how she looked!!! If she cared tht much she should have worn an Xtra lage T. I mean really, the girl should be worth at least 10 million dollars WHO CARES what the media says about her? I know she shouldn't The bottom line is that she has enough money to buy a whole fleet of ice cream trucks filled with ham and biscuts!!!! as well as the right. Instead of her dedicating a one hour talk show on weather or not she gained 30 lbs or 3100 lbs, she needs to chill out and order a sausage sandwich and have a "big girl party"!!!! Hell I will be there. Who else is coming????

i think it's probably true, because she looks thinner this season, doesn't she? i think she looks better this season.
