tyra-banks2.jpgFormer catwalk model turned TV personality Tyra Banks was hurt by the claims that she had gained 50 pounds in two months. Pretty Tyra Banks has spoken out at the critics who called her fat after pictures of her on the beach appeared in magazines under headings such as ‘Tyra Pork Chops’, ‘America’s Next Top Waddle’& (RWD personal favourite)‘Thigh-ra Banks’.

Banks has always been willing to talk frankly about weight. She currently weighs 161 pounds, 30 pounds more than she did as a supermodel in the 1990s, when supermodels were already several sizes bigger than they are today. Banks Said “I’m not worried about my weight at all… I know what I look like…. I’m 161 (pounds) and I feel fine and wonderful.”
