Ok Tyra, are you fat or aren't you?

Sweet Jesus. Tyra Banks truly confuses the shit out of me. Can we please do a quick re-cap of the last couple years?

May 2005 - Tyra retires from modeling by walking the Victoria's Secret fashion show one last time.

Sept. 2005 - Tyra gets her own talk show, remains in the public eye thanks to this, and ANTM.

Sept. 2005-Dec. 2006 - Tyra eats a whole hell of a lot of food. She's eating chicken, beef, dolphin (especially after getting over her fear of dolphins on her talk show), everything. Bitch is EATING.

Sometime in late 2006 - Pictures are released of Tyra looking a little rough around the edges, bloggers start calling Tyra a fatty.

Jan. 2007 - Tyra blantantly denies she is fat, shoots the cover of People, has a show about how she's not fat, but if she was fat, she'd be cool with that.

Ok...I think that brings us up to speed. Well now, Tyra is still trying to prove how good she looks by commerating her Sports Illustrated cover that she did 10 years ago, by doing it again and in the same bathing suit, no less. Here's what she had to say about it:

"I was about 140 pounds on that cover … and I’m 161 now. I’d say I looked like a stripper when I put it on. They covered the sides of my chest so that it wasn’t so much hangin’ out. And they put some extenders on the sides of the bikini bottom so it fit. I think there’s more power in embracing what I am now and showcasing that. I’m thinking that I should probably do this every 10 years. So, in 2017 maybe I’ll get in the swimsuit again and I’ll have to get them to add a little more fabric.”

So, let me get this straight. You're not fat, and you are proud of how you look, but you are having everything tucked in and stuck away, and this isn't even mentioning all the photoshopping that will be done to the final product. And how is she showcasing what she is now, if she is taping and tucking away all that she is now? I would much rather see stripper Tyra. And where did the Tyra from a week ago go? The one that brought a life-sized cut out of herself on her talk show and rambled and cried about how this was "just a bad picture"!!! That Tyra has been eaten by SI Tyra, and SI Tyra wants a good picture, y'all!

Basically, Tyra was tired of modeling and wanted to she did, and then people started judging her, and now she's back to modeling and being ashamed of her body. It's hard out there for a model, y'all. Tyra, just let it go girl...become the 400 lb. fatty you really want to be!

I read your litle article there. I think Trya is gorgeous and smart. Even if you haven't critized these qualities you are still degrading her. It's people like you that are ugly*when u act ugly u r* and hurtful. It's people like you that make girls stick their fingers up thier throats. Recognize it; YOUR the bitch, and tyra can say whatevr the fuck she wants and she'll still be a better person than you. I'm sure you have made comments sarcastically or contradciting quotes;how would you feel me posting them up and making you look bad?get a life tyra rules

omg tyra aint fat, ive seen more fat on a cold chip. so what if she likes to enjoy food most people in the world do. i think tyra is a legend, i look up to tyra because she is such a great role model to all age groups and has achieved so much. and why does it matter if she has bin air brushed,shes shown use that she is beautiful so why would it hurt to be air brushed once in a while. if every one had the chance to be air brushed no one would say no. so theres no need to criticize and hate on people because it hurts them more then you no. take other peoples feelings into consideration because you wouldnt like it if it was being done to you. tyra your brilliant, keep up the good work.

I think Tyra Banks is a hypocrite. She keeps saying how you should be proud of yourself, no matter what anyone else says.

But as soon as someone says something negative about her, she immediately goes on the defensive "I'm not fat!" "It was a bad angle!" while taking a bunch of airbrushed magazine covers.

Meanwhile, when TMZ was ragging on Jennifer Love Hewitt bikini pics, she didn't go on a big tirade. She just quietly wrote on her blog "I think everyone should be happy with who they are."

TO the author you basically summed her up nicely with this line: "Tyra was tired of modeling and wanted to she did, and then people started judging her, and now she's back to modeling and being ashamed of her body."
