That’s Not the Real Tyra Banks We See on Top Model

December 5, 2006 / Posted by:

Tyra Banks said in an interview that what she plays on America’s Next Top Model is a character version of herself. Many have made fun of her antics on the reality show. She’s trying to cover herself by saying that’s not the real her.

She spoke in third person, “She’s almost a caricature of herself. There’s a certain voice that I use when I say, `I have five photos in my hand.’ It’s really funny. I would never give modeling advice in the tone that I give it to the girls, but it’s just something that works for the show. The advice is the same that I would give, but I would just give it differently in real life.”

“But with `Top Model,’ that’s more of a character. That is not who I am in real life. People who come to my talk show laugh, because they say they watch `Top Model,’ and that’s who they thought I was, but it’s a reality-show character.”

Homey don’t play that. You know she’s that batshit crazy in real life! But thank God for that, because it’s good to watch.
