I’m sure that all of you know the controversy going on about Tyra Banks’ reaction to a model’s waist on a CW commercial for the newest Top Model season. I just want to say that Tyra Banks is a supporter of all women’s shapes as long as they are healthy. She should not be faulted for her reaction. I think that she seemed just as interested in the unusual size of the models’ waist as she was when she first saw Toccara’s enormous breasts. It is normal for people to react to an oddity on someone else and I certainly don’t believe that Tyra envy’s the tiny waist or would want to encourage other girls to look like that. I k now that Tyra has struggled with her weight and that she is in a really great place right now. She eats healthily and works out regularly while juggling an extremely demanding schedule. I really look up to Tyra. She is an icon and continues to be a great role model to women everywhere.
I also think that people forget how involved Tyra is in Top Model. She edits everything and the only reason we saw her reaction to the tiny waist is because she wanted us to. Tyra Banks is not stupid. She knew that this would generate press about the new season and she won. We are all talking about it.
