America’s Next Top Model Judge Tyra Banks Visits “The Talk”

March 17, 2011 10:00 AM by Allyson Wells

America’s Next Top Model judge and producer Tyra Banks appeared live on The Talk this week.  She had a lot to say about the show’s current cycle, attending Harvard, and her own beauty advice site, TypeF.  She also talked about her own modeling experience and how others can benefit from her work ethic.

Tyra started off her appearance on The Talk by teaching the hosts how to “smize,” which is smiling with your eyes.  Tyra boasts that if you smile with your eyes, you will get a second date and much more instead of just throwing yourself at a man.  The hosts then played the montage that started off the latest cycle of America’s Next Top Model.  You might recall how Tyra dressed up as various model stereotypes.  Tyra explained that so many girls try out for the show thinking that they can be a character that the judges might be looking for.  Tyra would prefer the girls just be themselves.  She then turned the subject to her mother being a critical component in her modeling career.  Tyra told the audience that they should never miss work for a man.  She revealed after a breakup, she didn’t want to do a modeling job because she was too upset.  However, her mom made her go to the job and Tyra worked through it. 

Tyra confirmed that she is attending Harvard Business School and it is so much harder than she thought it would be.  When asked what other students think of her being there, Tyra revealed on the first day that a fellow student told her, “You look just like Tyra Banks.”  Tyra hopes that her business training will help her with her new beauty site, TypeF.  She explained that F can stand for fun, fabulous, feline, ferocious, or whatever you want it to be.  TypeF will be a site where any woman at any age or size can get evaluated on how to be beautiful by pulling out their strengths.  Tyra noted that it was important for all women to have a site that gives them a reflection of themselves in the media.

Unfortunately, Tyra did not have any other spoilers for America’s Next Top Model, but did state how proud she was of the show for being so successful.  Tune in to the CW to watch the current cycle.
