TyTy Apologizes For New ANTM Promo

Filed under: TV NewsModelsTyra BanksReality TV

It's only been a week, but Tyra Banks is finally speaking out about the new America's Next Top Model commercial featuring Ann, the girl with the world's smallest waist.

In a new statement, Tyra apologizes for the "misconstructed" clip that was badly edited.

Riiight.

Here's Tyra's lengthy "me me me" statement in its entirety:

"In an effort to create a fun and entertaining sneak peak of the upcoming cycle, America’s Next Top Model released a trailer that was edited in way that misconstrued our overarching message.

As a leader in celebrating and promoting healthy body image, I must admit that I regrettably didn’t see this clip before it was released to the public, (with multiple Top Model departments, it’s just impossible to review everything) but on behalf of the Top Model team, these were not the intentions, and we truly apologize for any confusion, anger or disappointment it may have caused.

The passionate response the trailer has evoked proves that the message to promote and celebrate all different — healthy and natural –- body types has resonated with our viewers and I’m so proud of every one of you who voiced your opinion and participated in this conversation. I have experienced body image scrutiny from one extreme to the next –- as an awkward, extremely thin pre-teen who couldn’t gain weight no matter what I did, to later being slammed by the media for my fuller, curvier frame.

Driven by these personal experiences I am committed to expanding the definition of beauty which includes ALL shapes, sizes and proportions, from skinny to curvy and everything in between. It’s about women telling the world to KISS their –- skinny, wide, droopy, flat, cellulite-covered or FAT -– you know what!

Through Top Model and my other platforms, I am able to connect with women directly. During this season of Top Model, you will see that Ann (the woman featured in the trailer) provided another opportunity for me to support a young woman struggling with her own body image issues (she’s 6’2″; and is the receiver of countless stares and ridicule). Helping young ladies, like Ann and countless others that have confided in me, furthers and supports my core mission.”

And there you have it.

Something tells us the premiere of this season's ANTM is going to have BIG ratings.

What do U think of Tyra's long-winded apology???

Filed under: Tyra BanksBusiness Blitz

As we mentioned last week, after "retiring" 5 years ago Tyra Banks has returned to her modeling agency IMG. When it was first announced, details were minimal but now Tyra herself has explained the move.

Miz Banks dishes:

"The last time I was with IMG, I was set on taking on the modeling world in the high fashion and commercial sectors. Now I'm dreaming even bigger but this time for my company as well. Aligning myself with brands that I believe in, and helping them achieve the kind of success they're looking for, helps all of us as we grow our businesses."

As part of her new contract, TyTy will be backing commercial endorsements and other fashion opportunities.

Inneresting.

Wonder what she'll be hawking first???

Don't Live Next Door To Tyrannosaurus Banks!

Filed under: Tyra Banks

We have a funny feeling Tyra Banks' neighbors won't be throwing her a welcome party because she hasn't even moved in and they already hate her!

TyTy has bought out FOUR apartments in New York City, which are undergoing some mayjah remodeling to make them one big ass house. Unfortunately for the rest of the complex, all the noise is driving them insane!

They've even called police to complain about the noise.

OK, we get that the noise can be obnoxious, but calling the police? That's a little much. Besides what would they do besides waste taxpayer dollar?

Maybe Tyra should give her entire building a smizing seminar or something once she's settled.
