Tyra Ending Her Daytime Talk Show !

"The supermodel-turned-TV-mogul told People that she will wrap up her talk show at the end of its current season - its fifth -- this coming spring. "

"Tyra will shift her focus to Bankable Studios, a film production company based in New York. The mag reported that the company is taking a look at potential projects to produce."

"Tyra will stay committed, however, to her longtime reality competition, "America's Next Top Model," which recently crowned its first petite model winner, Nicole Fox. The show will return in 2010 with its 14th season."Read full article here

Tyra Banks Beauty Campaign

Let's help Tyra Banks changed the definition of beauty. Tyra's new mission called Beauty Inside and Out (B.I.O) goal is to broaden our definitions of beauty (just like my blog Beauty Is Diverse).

"It's not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box. So now, I'm asking women around the world to make a pledge to expand their definition of beauty. To put all types of beauty into the spotlight. Think outside of the box. It's time for you to celebrate and help redefine beauty. Let's rejoice and embrace "non-traditional beauty". Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you. I also ask that you spread love and positive beauty messages to others. Tell your friend, family member or even a stranger that their atypical features are flawless."

"Make a video, 30 seconds or less. Tell us your first name, where you're from, and what you're going to do to expand the definition of beauty. You can talk about accepting and celebrating yourself or your big plans to redefine beauty. You can also show us you in action doing your thing! Then, upload it on the video player and write any comments below it. Can't wait to see you! I'm going to be looking at every single one. Seriously. :)"

Nationality/Ethnicity: African American & Lumbee Indian

Favorite Model: Alek Wek because she exudes strength of character, which is more important than beauty to me.
