By now you have all heard about the Tyra Bank’s saga, and heard her response in People magazine “I still feel hot.”
I am usually about a week late to post to these type of stories, since I like to contemplate before I post. Those of you who know me well may recall that Tyra was the impetus for this blog, so I find this to be an ironic twist. Her completely asinine show America’s Top Model got me completely bent out of shape due to it’s lack of realism and responsibility.
On the topic of Tyra being a porkchop, the comment was rude and mean, but totally predictable. The weekly magazine stands are separated into two distinct sections – who is fat, who is skinny. It’s a pattern that has been around as long as I can remember, and it will continue as long as magazines are sold, and people find enjoyment out of the pain of another fellow human being.
On the porkchop comment, if this babe is a porkchop, we are all in big trouble. She is a heck of a beauty at 5’10, 161. You can bet women all over the country are now comparing their height and weight to Tyra’s, sadly, it’s only natural.
So what’s next for Tyra? I predict she will rapidly lose some pounds.
I know she is stating to the press she is happy, and she wants to be a solid role model, yada, yada, yaha. But the reality is, not many of us could be totally blasted in the national press, shown in a swimsuit with cellulite, and not totally freak out about our weight. Could you handle it?
