We were rooting for you, we were all rooting for you… and it paid off!
Tyra Banks shocked the world when she quit both America's Next Top Model and FABLife to focus on her other business ventures, but now we officially know what she's been up to for the past year.
That's because in addition to getting cast as a mentor on Arnold Schwarzenegger's Celebrity Apprentice, NBC just put in a series order for a brand new reality show starring Mizz Tyra herself!

The super model will be joined by skateboard businessman (and Ridiculousness host) Rob Dyrdek and marketing specialist Rohan Oza on Funded, an entrepreneurial competition series that's being billed as a cross between The Voice and Shark Tank.
Tyra confirmed the good news in a statement on Wednesday, saying:

Let's just hope she has more luck than Flavor Flav did when he tried to sell fried chicken.
Recently, while at former Glacéau exec Rohan Oza's El Lay home for a charity event, there was some talk that Brit might be teaming up with Oza to market her "down-home sweet tea."
Here's what a rep for Britney had to say about it:
"Britney did make her homemade sweet tea for every one that night, and they loved it. She made it from a secret family recipe she learned from her mother, who learned it from her mother. Britney makes it for her boys all the time. As far as a deal with any beverage company, I have no comment."
Hmmm…sounds to us like a deal is already in the works, and this story was planted to get the word out there…not that we're opposed to Brit Brit selling sweet tea.
Whip us up a batch, Britney! We'll let people know if it's good or not. LOLz.
Do U think Britney Spears will become the new face of Sweet Tea? Or is this all REALLY just speculation?
