Tyra Banks Never Wants To Lose Her Curves Again!

Filed under: Tyra BanksBody

Tyra banks wants to keep her curves

And she shouldn't have to either!

If you recall, Tyra Banks received some pretty harsh criticism in 2006 after a picture surfaced of her looking less than perfect in a one-piece bathing suit.

As a result, the supermodel-turned-television personality decided it was time to be more health conscious and lost 20 pounds with the help of her colleagues!

“We all made a pact to do a three-month health-and-fitness challenge, " she shares in a Life & Style interview hitting newsstands nationwide this Friday.

Her slimmer figure did not make her as happy as she thought it would and she quickly regretted losing what made her sexy in the first place — her curves!

“I didn’t like myself that small, so I gained back some weight," she shares.

Now the 37-year-old has accepted that she doesn't have to look like she did 15 years ago, exclaiming:

“I’m proud of my curves and my butt and my bust and my thicker thighs."

Instead of obsessing over everything she eats, she simply eats in moderation and stays active. It sounds like she's even used the bathing suit controversy as inspiration for her first novel, Modelland, due out in September. The message of the story, she says, "is really about expanding the definition of beauty."

Quote Of The Day

tyra-banks-on-being-a-celebrity-author.jpg

"I question when 'celebrities' write books. But I don't consider myself a celebrity. I consider myself a businesswoman. I'm in business school. I'm a producer and a creator and a storyteller, so it's a little bit different than being an actress and being like, 'I wrote a book!'"

-Tyra Banks to the LA Times on being taken seriously as an author.

Tyra Announces New Book Series

Filed under: Tyra BanksBusiness Blitz

Fierce!

Tyra Banks has announced on her website that she will be adding author to her resume.

The three-book series will be released under the newly formed Bankable Books and will be called Modelland.

TyTy writes on her blog:

The story happens in a make-believe place called Modelland - every girl in the world wants to go there because it’s where “Intoxibellas” are trained. Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too. (But I’m confirming NOTHING! Ha. You gotta wait for the book.) The story follows a teen girl and her friends who find themselves magically transported to Modelland, even though they’re really not supposed to be there. (Okay, now, that’s ALL I’m saying!)

Sounds…inneresting.

The books will make their bookstore debut next summer.

Will U be reading Modelland???
