Because history has taught ABC nothing, Tyra Banks is the new host/executive producer of Dancing With The Stars’ 29th season, replacing hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. Apparently on Tuesday night’s episode Tyra was an even bigger mess than contestant Carole Baskin’s attempt at a Viennese Waltz (set to “What’s New Pussycat?”), screwing up a bunch of her lines.
Here’s the clip:
But Tyra didn’t let her fuck ups bring her down. And why should she? Flubbing a couple lines is a helluva improvement over traumatizing an entire generation of wannabe supermodels (AKA taking out the competition). Nope, she’s already bounced back, posting a TikTok video set to an inspirational score (literally the track is called, “Inspiration”), in which she owns her mistakes:
In the TikTok, Tyra compared her screw up to contestant Skai Jackson, 18, falling during her dance (and note the hunger in Tyra’s eyes when she says the words, “eighteen-year-old”):
”It wasn’t perfect. Yeah, I had a lot of fun but I messed up, I said the wrong words, but the thing is, I kept, kept going. In fact, you know what, tonight Skai Jackson, Disney Channel star, eighteen-year-old, she kinda fell during her dance, but she got back up and she kept going, and because of that she’s here for another week.
So the message is: I messed up this week, Skai messed up this week, but we’re gonna keep on going and going, alright? So, forgive yourself when you mess up, stand the heck up, and keep going. And tell the haters, what, wha, wha? I dunno your name, wha wha? I don’t see you, wha what? Cuz I’m gettin’ up. And I’m keeping going.”
Well, if the ABC suits wise up and fire her, Tyra can always go back to her main gig. No, not modelling! She’s already an ancient 46-years-old (that’s “dead” in cover girl years)! No, no, singing:
And yes, I know I already referenced this certified bop in today’s Mariah Carey post, but a hit is a hit is a hit. Read: I’ve been playing this early-aughts crapola on repeat for three whole hours, so there’s no way I’m not infecting the rest of you with it. No mask/sanitizer/quarantine can stop this cursed virus.
