  • Tyra Banks may just be one of the savviest models around, having forged a new career after the runway in talk show television. Tyra recently won a Daytime Emmy award for her television talk show, “The Tyra Banks Show.” On her show, she often dispels rumors and myths not only about women in general, but about herself in particular. In her first season on the air, Tyra Banks dismissed the rumor she had had a breast augmentation, but she has never addressed rumors of a nose job.

    Tyra Banks, Nose Job, Rhinoplasty

    Tyra’s large breasts were long speculated to be the results of breast implants. But Tyra proved otherwise in an on-air segment featuring a plastic surgeon. As the audience watched, Tyra removed her bra and let her boobs swing free. Without the bra, Tyra’s breasts fell naturally to her navel. To further illustrate her point that her breasts are indeed real, Tyra then allowed a plastic surgeon to use an ultrasound to detect any foreign material. When he found none, the enthusiastic former model turned talk show host was vindicated.

    Tyra Banks, Breast Augmentation, Implants

    Tyra frequently disputes tabloid rumors about herself on her show, but she has never mentioned or addressed the rumor that she had a nose job when she was young, presumably to further her modeling career and appear less ethnic.

    In a high school photo, Tyra’s nose is wide and round. Her current nose, the nose that made her a household name around the world, is much more narrow and defined along the bridge and significantly less rounded at the tip. Rhinoplasties are common among black women in the public eye (See Make Me Heal’s story on famous black women with plastic surgery) and actress Elise Neal estimates as many as 75% of black women in Hollywood have nose jobs.

    Tyra has done a lot to empower black women and we’d like to see her take her honesty one step further and admit to her nose job and whatever other procedures she has in the future.

      She is so fake from head to toe. Your forgot to mention all her liposuction and eye job, plus upper lip job. She degrades women with her stupid modeling show then cries about people thinking she is fat even after all her lipo. Hypocrite, shallow, and damaging to girls.

    3. Denise on June 30, 2008 2:27 pm

      I really don’t care if she had Plastic Surgery of not, she looks GOOD.
      You all are always Hating on Blacks, mainly the black women.

    4. Elle on July 8, 2008 1:11 am

      Tyra is F-A-K-E. She got her nose done and a host of other things done. Including BREAST IMPLANTS!!!!!

    5. AMILIA on July 27, 2008 1:54 pm

      OMG U R SO LATE I HEARD ABOUT THIS LIKE A YEAR AGO!

    6. shdhd on September 4, 2008 8:34 pm

      Tyra is such a hypocrite. How can she even say she’s a supermodel when those aren’t even her real looks?!! And now she has a modeling show talking about “true beauty” inside and out and meanwhile she’s going out and getting her nose done! Who is she to say what’s beautiful?!!

    7. nay on September 6, 2008 1:32 am

      blacks could never be ugly, if we are so ugly why does whites try to be like us. For example, tans, botox, booty implant… Need i go on…. So hating on tyra a get a life. She’s a beautiful black woman… GO TYRA… make that money honey..

    8. J/M on September 8, 2008 9:08 pm

      Tyra, beautiful? ha! she has had a host of plastic surgery, she’s as fake as her “me” personality. Whites trying to be Black for your reasons? wrong, they’re trying to look better but usually just look weird or worst. oh, and your beloved Holly Berry = nose job. funny how Tyra and these other Sistas talk about this so called Black Beauty, yet they try to erase their Black features way to “Keep it real” Sista.

    9. END OF DISCUSSION RETARDS on September 12, 2008 8:06 pm

      WHY ISNT THERE A MODERATOR ON THIS SITE TO ERASE THESE IGNORANT RACIST COMMENTS?

      NOW THERE ARE 2 SIDES:
      1.YES BLACK ACTRESSES DO WEAR WEAVES,GET THEIR HAIR STRAIGHTENED,MAYBE SOME SKIN BLEACH,NOSE JOBS,BOOB JOBS ETC..

      2.YES ALOT OF WHITE ACTRESSES WEAR WEAVES,GET NOSE JOBS,GET LIP INJECTIONS,BUTT IMPLANTS,TANNED,BOOB JOBS.

      SO DONT ACT LIKE ITS ONLY ONE RACE THAT GETS STUFF DONE AND ISNT NATURAL

      OH AND BY THE WAY,SO DO HISPANIC,ASAIN,INDIAN ACTRESSES.

      SO TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SINGLING OUT ONLY ONE RACE,YOU SOUND REALLY STUPID!
      NOBODIES A NATURAL BEAUTY IN HOLLYWOOD!!

    10. brian on October 7, 2008 8:09 am

      Has nothing to do with black or white… get over it people ….

    11. steve on October 9, 2008 7:10 pm

      yes, almost every celebrity have gotten plastic surgery. but they are celebrities, they wana look pretty. who cares if black or white cosmetic or not.

      what i think is so annoying is black ppl getting so defensive about their race.

      -YES you were once a slave
      -Yes you were once treated wrong
      but who cares its over now. black ppl get so upset if you talk anything bad about them! ASIANS , mexicans get made fun of all the time. you dont see them saying “what dat guh talken about, she said she dont like black people? OHH guhh i know she didnttt” and going around shotting people!

    12. MYESHA on October 13, 2008 11:14 am

      TYRA IS A VERY BEATIFUL WOMEN WHETHER SHE FAKE OR NOT MY NAME IS MYESHA PATTERSON AND I WILL LOVE TO BE JUST LIKE TYRA YALL JUST MAD CAUSE YOU ALL DONT LOOKMAS GOOD AS SHE DO

    13. MYESHA on October 13, 2008 11:14 am

      TYRA IS A VERY BEATIFUL WOMWN AND I WANT OT BE JUST LIKE HER

    14. Noesha on October 17, 2008 6:34 am

      just look at the early pix – flat nose spread all over her face, no cheeks, brows normal and lips, well, normal…..

    15. Roni on October 21, 2008 10:35 am

      She looks good but needs to stop being a Hypocrite saying she’s never had plastic sugery and is against it. I can see from the pics she’s obviously had something done to her Nose, Eyelids (which were non existent in the prior pic), and lips (before pic she had a very thin top lip).

    16. sarina on December 8, 2008 7:58 pm

      You know, maybe instead of being so ignorant and thinking EVERYONE in hollywood gets a nose job….. its called COCAINE and everyone uses it thats why they ALL HAVE THE SAME NOSE cocaine sucks your nose is also notice when she looks like her nose is thin HER BODY IS ALSO JUST AS THIN

      seriously do you guys honestly think model and celebrities are able to maintane that slim body with no muscle tones? aND ABSOLUTLY NO MUSCLES VISIBLE

      ive got a past drugg expirience and i am also a very fit person and i KNOW when someone is on or what substance they are on

      You honestly wouldn’t be able to see it unless you have druggie friends or have been through it.

      It is also why no body gets results from tho BS work out plans, because it just covers hollywood’s addiction.

      go ahead check it out all these people have the same nose

      Tyra Banks
      Charleese Theron
      Brad Pit
      Angelina Jolie
      YES! Jennifer Aniston
      Jessica Alba
      Luke and Owen Wilson
      Vince Vaughn
      Jennifer Lopez

      its the whole sucked in nose

      its not normal guys and its not plastic surgery
      NOTE: Also the people who get plastic surgery also are linked to specific personality disorders where the mind alters what it really sees. Not everyone, but most. Specially the ones who get it one over and oever again

    17. olivia on December 12, 2008 12:43 pm

      the one who said black people are ugly is such an asshole loser and a douchbag. that upsetted me so bad i wanted to kill you. but black people are so pretty.

    18. yeyo on December 16, 2008 6:21 pm

      White people have always been jealous of black people’s looks. P.E.R.I.O.D! They dont like to see black people look good or better than them, which we usually do. Its the same slave and prejudice mentality it has always been with them, so why even waste time giving white folks a rebuttle on this site! Yall’s time is running out so get over it!! Haha!

    19. mayra on December 18, 2008 4:30 pm

      Tyra Bank is the most beatiful African American TOP MODEL(for all those ugly jealous bitches out there) And how care if she got a nose, boob job. If it makes you inhance you beauty do it.

    20. Do Tell on December 21, 2008 3:03 pm

    21. anonymous on December 28, 2008 1:41 pm

      You sound very racist and ignorant. I feel sorry for you. I don’t blame you, you were probably raised in a home full of ignorance. Look around, we are living in a world of diversity.If you don’t feel comfortable then you should move to another planet…….

    28. R. Real on January 8, 2009 6:24 pm

      Mel, get some education. Your ignorance offends me.

    29. Whitley on January 11, 2009 8:31 pm

      Lets not forget that America is the most diverse country racially. So in our past history we are all integrated with something. So Mel our any other person filled with pure idiocy, when you go out into the sun and tan or get a paint tan, the question is what is your ethnicity, or what ethnicity are you impersonating.

      Just to let it be know I am a proud African American Female with all racial features.

    30. Anne on January 13, 2009 12:55 pm

      I hate when someone said about black people WERE slaves ones. Notice how it was WERE. It’s in past tence people. So f’n stupid when all of a sudden someone offends a black person u go strait to we were slaves once. I’m Russian and I had nothing to do with your history. So why do u think all people critize all black people? That’s just so stupid. My dad is an asswhole for teaching me stuff about black people and bluh, bluh, bluh. But thank god I went to school and know the other truth. Ya’ll just ignorant. And Tyra you are beautiful inside and out. If it wasn’t for Tyra there wouldn’t be a talk show that would change people’s lives. Stupid asses. That just pisses me off. And Tyra maybe you could talk about why black people always bring up “the we were black once factor” Again. I’m Russian and was not born in America. And proud of it. Even though Russia has it’s setbacks it never treated a black person unfairly. Russia has it own haters. they call us communists. And I’ve been going through hell in high school because some people only learned that part in school and didn’t care about the rest. They only know us because of COMMUNISTS. But what about the pour Jews? Stupid. Stupid stupid racist comment about black people and nose jobs. Grow up.

    31. the fly on January 14, 2009 5:48 am

      only in america could a discussion about tyra banks’ cometic surgery become an all out race war. you people need to chill. tyra looked way better before. now she just looks scary.

    32. Lola on January 14, 2009 10:28 pm

      you know enough of the black and white thing. deep inside what we really want is to be pretty “tv pretty” there’s no definition of what pretty really is. the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. you should be blaming the tv instead of celebrities they are the victims of a media thirsty for lies and money.

    33. Lola on January 14, 2009 10:33 pm

      one more thing, here in Puerto Rico we are made of all shades u can imagine, and we live happy, on our media women get boob jobs and a lot of stuff more and nobody cares. She was beautiful then she is beautiful know. whats really important is that she is healthy, if she is ok. nothing else matters. nobody can say she does cocaine well lets say she has a boob job, please people let them be if ur not gonna be part of the solution dont be part of the problem.

    34. melissa joseph on January 15, 2009 12:52 pm

      all you haters need to stfu! great model and show host

    35. melissa joseph on January 15, 2009 12:55 pm

    38. crystal on January 19, 2009 3:16 pm

      I was watching Tyra recently and it looks like she has recent work on her eyes. Fake ass talking about beautiful, i could look as beautiful if i had money for major plastic surgery

    39. Mary on January 29, 2009 5:33 pm

      Oh my goodness,

      Forget all the racial opinions on here, most of you people can’t complete a written sentence without mispelling at least one word in it. If this is the level of education in the US, then I think we have other things to worry about. Like uhmm… EDUCATION. Learn how to spell people geesh!

    40. Randy on February 1, 2009 7:15 pm

      I think Tyra looked OK before but now she is so artificial it’s not even funny. On her show she lectured black women about bleaching their skin yet she has fake hair. What a hypocrite.

    41. ALISON on February 2, 2009 10:34 am

      TYRA BANKS I DON’T UNDERSTAND. SHE SAYS ONE THING THEN TURN AROUND AND DO THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE, SHE IS VERY INSECURE ITS SAD,SHE FEELS AS THOUGH SHE HAS TO EXPLAIN HERSELF TO THE MEDIA, YOU, ME AND THE WORLD. ME PERSONALLY I DON’T LIKE TYRA BECAUSE OVER THE YEARS SHE CHANGED INTO A ROBOT YOU KNOW LIKE OPRAH DID WHEN SHE FIRST CAME OUT SHE WAS REAL NOW SHE TOO IS ON SOME BS. I DON’T HAVE RESPECT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE CHANGING WHO THEY ARE INSIDE AS WELL AS OUTSIDE, IT MAKES THEM PLASTIC, FAKE PEOPLE, YES TYRA IS FAKE BECAUSE SHE DOES NOT PRACTICE WHAT SHE PREACH, AND ALL SO HER TALK SHOW SUCKS JUST LIKE OPRAH, ITS FAKE, CORNY AND BORING, AND TO ME TYRA WANTS TO BE LIKE BEONCYE,I REALLY DON’T CARE IF SHE HAD SURGERY OR NOT ITS HER MONEY ITS HER BODY ITS HER LIFE, BUT IT DOES BOTHER ME THAT SHE BE HARD ON OTHERS THAT ARE TRYING TO BECOME MODELS AND SHE TELL THEN ABOUT THERE NOSE OR FORE HEAD IF THATS NOT THE SKILLET CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK THE WTF. REALTALK TYRA NEEDS A REALITY CHECK

    42. Baby Cakes* on February 3, 2009 5:58 am

      Quote Audrey Hepburn her beauty tips -

      ‘For attractive lips, speak words of kindness,
      For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people,
      For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry,
      For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day,
      For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.’

      This beauty is true beauty –
      in which case, surgery or no surgery we are beautiful
      if we are good people.

      So yes, Tyra is beauitiful we all are, if we stop the hate.
      And start thinking about more important things, to worry about. :) X

    54. pol on February 24, 2009 11:59 am

      Oh yes sorry. White people are beautiful. And yes, BLACK WOMEN TRY TO IMITATE WHITE WOMEN, SISTAS. Yes, it’s true that we try fake tans , booties, bigger lips…but im sorry, that;s got nothing to do with looking like black women. I would never ever would like to look like a black women., Im white, blonde, well mannered and pretty.
      #Black women are always dying their hair, lighting their skin, having nose jobs and trying to look white.

      And, at last, black people are rude, agressive, bad mannered and much, much more racist than white people. You deserve being in the position you are (and you will always be in).

    55. pol on February 24, 2009 12:01 pm

      And now I guess I will receive hundreds of responses of black fat arse women threatening me and saying they want to kill me. Let’s wait.

      This race is so full of hate, they are so agresive.

    56. Jenny on February 24, 2009 2:34 pm

      “Admit”? Admit to what? That she is obviously wearing high quality makeup that makes her nose appear thinner? Would you like to search for recent pictures of her without makeup? Come on. At least do some research before accusing someone of plastic surgery.

    57. Victoria on February 27, 2009 5:07 pm

      HAHA this is to NayNay.Lmao listen to your racist black a**!! You sound like a total jacka**!! Black people aren’t perfect,Neither are any other race. You just make yourself sound so ignorant!!

      Btw,Who cares if Tyra had surgery,which i highly doubt she did. Shes a beautiful person inside and out,and its HER body,So she can do what she wants to it.

      OH and look at the way her face is positioned. Her nose is going to look different people!!

    58. yousuck on February 27, 2009 6:49 pm

      all of you suck and tyra is so nice you r just jelous so go get a life and shut your fat ASS mouth and all of you blacks you arnt perfect at all and neither are us whites so stop the racel commentes and worry on how nice tyra is

    59. Victoria on February 28, 2009 3:50 pm

      Oh and btw,GET OVER PLAYING THE RACE CARD!! It’S GETTING SOOOOO OLD!! YEAH WE GET IT YOU USED TO BE SLAVES,BUT EVERY OTHER DAMN RACE HAS BEEN DISCRIMINATED AGAINST,AND YOU DON’T SEE ANYONE ELSE CRYING ALL THE DAMN TIME!!! SO SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!

    60. Talia on March 1, 2009 1:08 pm

      I AGREE U GUYS ARE HATERS,WHO CARES OF HER IMAGE.CURRENTLY SHE’S SUCH AN INSPIRATION IN WHAT SHE’S DOING NOW.
      SHE’S FREAKIN AMAZING!
      U PEOPLE ARE SO SHALLOW,GET A LIFE!

    61. Melissa on March 1, 2009 10:42 pm

      I just came across this page,one specific comment caught my eye. White people try to be like black people??? What??? LOL. Every fucking race gets plastic surgery and tries to change their appearance (skin bleaching,nose jobs,liposuction,contacts)

      Ive seen some ugly ass black people along with every other race. I agree with Victoria,Don’t play the race card its old and no one really cares anymore.

      The bottom line is,You guys have enough compensation for what your ANCESTORS went through.(NOT YOU). No one owes you anything!!! I bet all of you talking shit about that don’t even know anything about when slavery occurred. Get some more information and education before you open your mouth.

      And for the topic at hand,Tyra is beautiful,and devotes her career to helping people out. What she does in her personal life is her own business.

    62. Tyra Banks Books on March 3, 2009 5:08 am

      Wouldn’t bother me if she did. At least the surgeon did a good job!

    63. Dina on March 4, 2009 3:56 am

      Beauty is not not universal, every society and community with in that society, and subculture has their own standard of beauty. In a natural world who ever was naturally, truly universally beautiful would be able to exist as they are. Well guess what, this is not a natural world or a perfect world, and if you are trying to gain access and succeed in a society which does not think that you are truly beautiful in your natural state then you have to alter it. Why else do we spend thousands of dollars on student loans? Because we are not equipped for jobs with our own knowledge alone. Tyra may be a lot of things, I’m not a particular avid fan of her but I do appreciate the things that she attempts to do. She confuses and sometimes even enrages me but I am happy to see a woman hold her own in the brutal world of the media. She did what she had to do to get ahead so that she can provide plus size women and women who are “ugly” pretty (her words) with a chance to get in and reach for the stars. This is simply a situation in which Tyra identified the thing that was keeping her from her millions and tackled it. Should she have to? No, but now maybe somebody with the same insecurity as she had does not have to do the same. Thank you Tyra. Race is an issue in America that evokes severe pain in the minds of African-Americans. But keep in mind that it is their history in this country.One can’t ask American descendants of the settles to simply forget the civil war. So allow those who are frustrated to work through their anger and hopefully one day relations between the different ethnic populations in this country will be better.

    64. Feyii on March 4, 2009 10:17 am

      pol get this into ur head BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO LOOK LIKE WHITE PEOPLE AND WILL NEVER WANT TO LOOK LIKE WHITE PEOPLE

    65. CeeCee on March 4, 2009 2:28 pm

      why you people talk about this?
      tyra’s body belongs to tyra. not to us.
      tyra did that nose job not to look “whiter”, but to feel better with her image.
      i believe those breast implants that everyone talks about don’t even exist. try to take a picture of yourself with and without a bra and you will have the same “breast implants” she has…

      tyra is a role model to all women.
      but guess what…? nobody is perfect!

    66. Tamara on March 6, 2009 11:03 am

      I don’t get why people are so obsessed with “did they get plastic surgery” and are so quickly to judge them for it. A lot of people hate things about themselves and very seldom does it have to do with their race. If someone wants a nose job to remove a bump, most people say nothing. But suddenly if you’re black and want a nose job it’s because of their race?
      If you had a mole or scar you didn’t like removed most people find that totally acceptable. Who draws the line on the aesthetically acceptable surgeries?

    67. Ann on March 6, 2009 6:16 pm

      I don’t think that tyra has had a nose job. She showed how she does her make-up and contouring was part of it. Furthermore, her entire face looks thinner than when she was younger. My face looks different than when I was 17. When the baby fat goes, your features stand out more. I know people who look completely different when they put on their make-up.

      I don’t think you can tell by her pictures if she had a nose job, especially when everything is contoured.

      To Tamara and others, Yes, if a black person has a nose job it’s rarely to look MORE african. They are usually doing it to look more European, even if they don’t realize it.

      They are not going to go in the office and say “Can you make it flatter and wider”? It’s 99.99% racial.

      It’s the same with Asians getting the surgery for double eyelids. Not racial? For hundreds of years almond shaped eyes were a sign of beauty, after European colonialism “the rounder the better, and give me some colored contacts”? coincidence?

      People aren’t actively saying “golly gee, I sure do want to be white”. But their concept of beauty is warped because European images dominate pop culture.

      Remember the experiment with the black and white dolls and the little black girls choosing the white dolls as the beautiful ones? It’s a disgrace!

      People do things and don’t realize WHY they do it. Someone told me that they relax their curly afro hair because they prefer the style and it’s more versatile. This doesn’t make sense. If you studying anthropology or sociology you’ll realize that no other hair texture is more versatile that African hair. In some places, you could tell the persons age, tribe , marital status and last name all by their hairstyle. If we were that creative, I’m sure you can think of something besides putting on a wig.

      Some say “it’s easier to manage”. I’ve seen how long some people spend in the beauty shops. It is NOT easier! ^_^ Once you learn how we SHOULD be treating our hair it’s ssssssssssooooooooooo easy. I just wake up, fluff it out and go. I get complements nearly EVERYDAY!

      For thousands of years in Africa, the texture of our hair was a source of pride and tradition. After colonialism we all just decided we liked straight hair?

      No, it’s not that simple. Ever wonder why old pictures of slaves often wore kerchiefs on their heads? There were actually laws against showing natural Afro hair. The tignon laws in Louisiana passed in 1785, are an example. Bleaching and hair straightening are remnants of those sad days. (it you were lighter and/or had straight hair, you were treated better)

      There’s nothing wrong with straightening the hair for a temporary style, or even wearing extensions or weaves (our African ancestors sometimes did but ONLY to add bulk or length to the style and the texture ALWAYS mimicked the natural kinky texture, it was NEVER silky straight like most wigs, weaves and extensions today) but when 95% of blacks do it 100% of the time out of habit, we have to look at the reason.

      If we do not know our history, we are doomed to repeat it. I can’t wait for the day when people will love themselves how they are, when the class associations with hair, skin color and racial features have faded away forever. Pretending they don’t still exist won’t help.

      ATT ALL:I AM A BLACK SOUTH AFRICAN YOUNG WOMAN I USED TO FEEL LIKE I NEVER WAS BEAUTIFUL AT ONE STAGE EVEN TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE CAUSE I THOUGHT PEOPLE NEVER LIKED ME CAUSE OF MY LOOKS AND ALSO CAUSE OF THOSE WHO WERE TEASING ME BUT IN 2004 I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT CHANGED JUST FROM WATCHING TYRA SHE MAY HAVE HAD HER NOSE AND EVERYTHING ELSE DONE FOR HER BUT YOU SEEM TO BE FORGETTIONG ONE THING SHE HAS CHANGED OTHER PEOPLES LIVES FOR BETTER IF YOU HATE HER SO BE IT BUT LET ME TELL YOU ONE THING ITS PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO DRIVE WOMEN TO DOING THE PLASTIC SURGERIES BECAUSE YOU NEVER MAKE THEM FORGET THEIR FLAWS.THANK YOU TYRA FOR HELPING ME THROUGH A ROUGH TIME IN MY LIFE

    69. Danielle on March 15, 2009 5:56 pm

      OMG this is ridiculous. She’s never gotten plastic surgery and she would never need to. The different angles in the photos make Tyra’s nose look different, but it’s still obviously the same. As for the breast implants, its called gaining weight. And she still looks great.

    70. alma on March 16, 2009 6:31 am

      To all you racist whites who made a racis comment , blacks are not just from america , they are from all over the world , asia , pacific islanders, europe , caribbean , , latin america , they come in all colors , features , have differnt complexions , hair textures , and eye color.Many of my white friends always get a tan , because they say that dark skin is more beautiful than having pasty white skin.Also many want to have full lips , because they told me is sexy and more kissable.Also , my white female friends told me they wished they had an ass , because their ass is so flat , not lying, .Many white guys told me as well that full lips is so sexy , and kissable , and the black women , when she is skinny, has the most sexy , curves then any other women.Many white actress had nose jobs, straighten their hair , want fuller lips.I will give you an example , marylin monroe , had a nose job, her nose was big , her hair was dark and very curly , she straighten her hair , and bleached her hair blond , but every one says she still consider one of the most SEXY , BLOND in these world , even dough she is dead, and she wasn’t even a BLOND.Yes , sure only in america that blonds are consider the most beautiful women in the world , but because you are blond it doesn’t mean every body in these world prefers blond.I had met lots of nordic people who prefers dark skin men and women , because there are so many blonds in the nordic countries.I seen this alot , in america the minority women (specially blacks) always get insulted if they do something , but the white women can do no wrong.I understand that it has to do with slavery , but not every black person came here as a slave , some came here as servans and immigrants ,some brititis people came here as servanst and slaves as well , but no one cares.In american ,there is a double standard between , black women and white women , it is like a competition.America will never change , because most people they are racist in the closet , not ready to come out .I do agree , i think tyra is a hiprocrite , because she tells people not to bleach their skin , have surgery , ect , but she did everything she told people not to do.I don’t care if you bleach your skin or what ever , just don’t tell people to do one thing when you do it yourself , because that is being a ‘HYPRROCRITE”.People of colors and nationalites has ugly and good looking people , it has nothitn to do with color or race.Only in america that race stills an issute , open your eyes , because most of you americans are still RACIST.

      Hey Yall

      Look how far this conversation has gone. I live in South Africa and it is so sad to see that you guys have such serious racial issues. We all have difference but guys keep the respect.

      I love Tyra, I have no problem with looks enhancement. But one does not have to lie about it. Whether she did it or not, that’s her business.

      Keep the love guys.

      Ciao!

    73. Monica on March 21, 2009 8:21 pm

      Wow, I can’t understand how women of different races can display such anger towards each other when really that anger should be directed at the media/men/etc who impose these impossible standards of beauty. Very few women out there are totally satisfied with what they are born with because we are told we need to have big butts, skinny noses, a nice tan, giant lips, and a complexion that is impossible to achieve without an airbrush. Don’t you see that those are things that come from ALL TYPES OF women, white, black, latin, asian, middle eastern, etc?! It is a combination of what men find attractive in different races. Stop being so ignorant as to think your race has it all and focus on what you like about yourself and if you don’t like something then learn to love it or change it. Plus, the common denominator for the women who get plastic surgery is money, not what race they come from. http://www.goodplasticsurgery.com, you’ll be surprised who you find! White, Black, Asian, Latina, middle eastern, nobody is exempt from low self esteem.

    74. Mrs. S. on March 24, 2009 7:34 am

      Unfortunately, those who think Miss Banks “looks good” suffer from self-hatred and brainwashing that mandates our natural features to appear caucasian. If you only knew that caucasians are actually genetically recessive, you wouldn’t try so hard to emulate them….Tyra included!

    75. BlaqGurl on March 24, 2009 9:57 pm

      im sorry but never in a million years would i want to be white. I wake up everyday and look in the mirror and realize how fly i am therefore I give all my thanks to god! truth be told every race have ugly people. so lets not go ther about the big noses and looking like monkeys cause yall white motherfukers be having them long ass dick noses, littlelips, fucked up skin and on top of that yall look like yall 50 when your only 20 so I thank god every day that im a sexy chocolate chick, dont need all the blonde hair nose jobs ect. im the shit and the urrine you better believe it and so is my girl Tyra Banks!

    76. BlaqGurl on March 24, 2009 10:02 pm

      OH YEAH I FOR GOT ABOUT YALL FLAT ASSES NTO EVEN A MILLION SQUATS WILL HELP THOSE ASSES IT IS WHAT IT IS CRACKERS!

    77. Fenni Naame on March 25, 2009 2:53 am

      The things is, she didnt change her brain she only change her nose and her boob,her brain is still the same and her intelligent so what’s the problem me i dont care with your body change is your own choice babe just go ahead gal you are so much intelligent!!!!!!

    78. Fenni Naame on March 25, 2009 3:24 am

      i’m in Namibia but i enjoy your talk show doesn’t mater if u had a breast or nose job to me u are still the same person i don’t understand the people who are talking to much about u i know you are the nice women i ever saw on this earth anyway when are you planning to caming to Namibia u should came make a live show here we will support u! don’t mind about them let them talk soon or later they will get tired! bye i salute you!!!!!

    79. temmylade on March 27, 2009 4:37 am

      Hey Tyra,I love watching ur show from Nigeria.And ur programme gives knowledge to people and teaches life. Temmylade from Nigeria

    80. carmen on March 28, 2009 12:59 pm

      BlaqGurl, thank you so much. Your answer to these white racist people is just fine, the best ever to give them.
      Baby Cakes, thanks for your poetic answer.

      This post was originally created to thank Tyra for empowering black women and to ask her to take her honesty one step further and admit her nose job. But the discussion went through issues between white and black people, often with jealousy and hatred.
      If Tyra had a nose job and now feels better, that’s wonderful, it’s her life and her body. She just shouldn’t lie about it so that other people won’t feel bad about not being perfect while this perfection doesn’t in fact exist.
      I was also very surprised to read that 75% of black women in Hollywood have nose jobs, I always thought it was natural and I think that it is why so many black women are upset about it: this means setting a standard of beauty that doesn’t reflect reality.
      One thing I don’t understand is why it should be a problem when a black person has a nose job and why it doesn’t matter when a white person has one (what happens much more often)? Lots of people have things they don’t like about themselves and if it is such a pain that they decide to have it fixed, well let them do it, that’s their right.
      To “keep it real” means to act according to what you feel and stand for your actions.

      Also always try to keep the love: there are so many more important things to be angry about like…
      - misspelling
      - ignorance
      - racism
      - …

      I wish peace and happiness to all of you.

    81. Vicky on March 29, 2009 9:50 am

    82. Amber on March 31, 2009 6:15 pm

      Well i dont kno about tyra’s so called nose job but whatever if so it just proves that as always hollywood is FAKE no one is real everything is fake all i know is that u have to love yourself as you are and to the racist people PLEASE please dont think that your people arent just as fake as tans , lip boosters, weaves, and want to be braids that fall down in a day, that you all want to wear just like us tryna to something that youre not arent just as fake. All i have to say is LOVE YOURSELF cause GOD DONT MAKE NO JUNK sometimes you just gotta make it work

    83. neenao on March 31, 2009 6:27 pm

      I think that Tyra Banks is a Beautiful lady, and alot of celebritys get plastic surgery so what! if everyone else in the world made as much money as celebritys they’d do the same thing. Find something they don’t like and get it FIXED!

      Tyra I personally think is a GOOD role model because, she’s funny, beautiful, and she has a great personality and she’s not afraid to be herself on her show and on ANTM. and Yes, I watch “The Tyra Banks Show” everyday when I get home from work. and ANTM on Weds.

      Tyra you are a good role model

    84. Gurlie on April 8, 2009 5:54 am

      this is for victoria: U need to shut up and realize there is descrimination everywhere. Just beacuse u are narrow minded and stupid and u dont know how to respect people causes u to look like a hypacrite and a dumb ass. So get a life and for ur information I am a proud African/Mexican american woman and to see u speak about races like that pisses me the f*** off so if u have a problem with black people u better deal with it because nobody is gonna want to listen to someone so ignorent like YOU!

    85. Gurlie on April 8, 2009 6:06 am

      This is for Pol: REALLY!!!!!! crackers be dying their hair to so dont try to be slick! They try to get darker skins and the sure as hell be doing the same shit that black women do. You are just making yourself sound stupid and look stupid! And ps: u probably aren’t really a blonde anyways so shut the fuck up. Your full of ignorence and stupidity!!! what you need is to get a f*** life and quit attacking black people before they get on you and start attacking you back, and just like you d
      said we are aggresive but we know how to handle a
      our shit we aint weak like crackers we dont back down we stand tall and if you have a problem with that then fix it!!!

    86. Melissa on April 9, 2009 11:01 pm

      First of all to you geniuses who are slanging and misspelling your words you sound just as ignorant as those you are insulting. I am not racist but using the word “cracker” is just as bad as using the word “nigger”,But due to ignorant cries for equality by people like yourselves, It becomes completely justified for you to use such prejudice language and stereotypes, But for other races it’s grounds for persecution. You’re being a hypocrite and if you’re unsure of the definition:person whose actions belie stated beliefs. You can’t call ridicule someone for being racist when you are yourself.

    87. sofie on April 10, 2009 9:43 am

      are you guys kidding you must be ignorant little kids. and how jealous are you. Guess puttig people down makes you feel better about yourself, what is it impossible for one person to be beautiful, in addition she told you that they touch up her pics sometimes, but you jealous heffas just can’t bear the fact that someone a black chick at that is beatiful.

    88. NaThRa on April 11, 2009 9:09 am

      Hie all….im a Malay gal from Singapore (Asia). For dos dat neva heard of the race Malay, its a minority race in Singapore wif its population filled up majority by Chinese (white/yellow skinned)… Most Malays r brown, so u see we r in betw of black n white…. When i was younger i used to be skinny wif black complexion….as i grew older i bcum fleshier (mebbe fatter) n fairer in complexion…U see ladies, we always hav dis argument of White VS Black…Skinny VS Fat….dis neva ends…its always been dat race for ‘perfection’….wic is unreal…but we juz hav to be the best dat we can be….doesnt matter we descend from wad race…be it White, Black, Latin, Middle Eastern, Carribean, Asian (Malay, Indian, Chinese)….As Tyra always said…’Work It!!’ ALL of us r shure to to blessed wif unique racial features…. its up to us to appreciate dem… If we strongly dun like, we hav all e right in e world to change our flaws….but u DO NOT HAVE ANY RIGHT TO CRITICISE ANY RACES!!! We nid to respect other races as our world is soooo diverse! Everyone has their flaws….. so NO RACE IS PERFECT. We sistas need to strive for the best in ourselves….no such thing as this race is No.1 n that race is Last… As for TYRA BANKS….. she is by far my most favourite idol….Why? Not bcoz of her gorgeous face (been under the knife or not) or her va-va-voom figure…. Its bcoz of her intelligence, her fierce soulful spirit and her warm, kind heart….she’s the biggest inspiration in my life after my mum….a True Beauty. She spreads LOVE and HOPE thru her talkshow….always encourages her fellow women to feel better bout themselves…boosts their self-esteem. TYRA IS ONE AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL WOMAN… all you ladies shud support her for wad she hav been doing….not to criticise her! So wad if she slims her nose….it makes her prettier….not to be ‘Whiter’, she’s proud to be a Black African Woman. She is not afraid to be a fuller model wif va-va-voom assets….she dun even go for liposuction even after e media criticises her for being fat! Dat says a lot. She keeps it real. To Tyra, i lurveee ya so so much….keep up the great werk! To Tyra-supporters, keep up e support ladies…she’s worth it! N to Tyra-hatters, you gals juz cant tell apart a gem among e stones….so sharpen ur judgement… Last but not least, lets all LOVE ourselves and RESPECT other ppl regardless of their races… Dats the real Beauty. =)

      How did a topic of plastic sugery become a race topic? Why are we not able to contribute our opinion without being so color conscious?

    90. dennis on April 13, 2009 10:13 am

      Tyra Banks is one of many that are truly annoying.Tyra is NOT a high school girl and definitley appears to look stupid and idiotic when she attempts to act as such.She needs to understand that at her age,to continue to act high schoolish and especially to ‘speak’ in a manner that assimilates a high school intelligencia isn’t attractive to anyone,especially not a mature man. There’s been others like her that did the same thing and where are they today? Rikki Lake..Carnie Wilson.just to name a few.and when the talk show middle age girlies begin to spout verbally,things like,”Go girl”!!! and they jump up and down as though pom pomming..i don’t whether to vomit or laugh my ass off!! i prefer to laugh my ass off

    91. Gaz, London on April 16, 2009 12:12 pm

      Blimey! It’s really sad to see so many racists still exist in the world. All those who have slagged off other ethnicities should be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves. All races have beautiful attributes and all races should be respected equally.

    93. dsingis on April 18, 2009 1:56 pm

      i always though that getting a darker skin is a NATRUAL effect (melanin..).
      but to get staight hair – is this also natural? or a try to emulate somebody? – maybe just an update..

      and honestly ppl.. comparing tanned skin and black skin by nature – is just ridiculous.
      or do you sometimes get confused seeing a “black” person who is in fact white ( if yes, visit an oculist ).

      and this ass and lips thing.

      yeah, there are turly some white girls with a flat ass and thin lips.. but believe it or not… there also exist plenty white girls with a chubby butt and full lips..(maybe thats one of the reasons why so many black men are attracted by white women?!)
      so in fact… the role models for this two mentioned attributes… are whites themself.

      all in one… whites are many dimensions far away from imitating blacks.

      and i turly believe, african-american ppl who change their appearance don’t do it because .. they want to imitate somebody but rather just want to look different.
      so as white ppl…

      black, white, asian, or even alien? who cares… you americans should start getting along with each other like civilised people. and judging each other by the personality and not by the shell… you would be surprised how similar ..you are

      ps. my english is not perfect… but it’s only my third language.. so…. i beg for forgiveness :)

      tschüs, czesc, bye and doswidanja ..

    94. Mary on April 19, 2009 9:46 am

      Tyra is such a hypocrite! She had a talk show about black people using bleaching cream to try to erase their race but I think she bleaches her skin too! If you look at her from when she was in High School to now, she dosen’t even look like the same person! Every time I see her on her show, her skin gets lighter and lighter, her nose gets smaller and smaller, her wiggs get blonder and blonder, but her ass is still really big….which isn’t a good thing in her case, because she looks unhealthy and freakish! Tyra thinks and acts like she’s perfect but she’s just a big fat mess! Stop trying to change your race Tyra and look at yourself in the mirror! When it comes to looks, I think black women need to use Oprah as a role model rather than Tyra. This is because Oprahs not out there trying to become white. I think black women and all ethnic women in general need to embrace their ethnic beauty and not try to become something they weren’t meant to be.

    95. brenda on April 23, 2009 1:28 am

      She is fake,why change wha GOD gave you and be proud of it?Nobody is ugly in GODs eyes.

    96. bridget on April 26, 2009 6:45 pm

      I don’t understand why Tyra’s nose job turned into a battle among the races…we all need to grow the F**K up…That includes blacks, whites, reds, blues. whatever the F**K we label ourselves..GROW UP>>THIS RACIST SHIT IS WHACK!

    97. Kevin Knight on April 26, 2009 10:37 pm

      Ever hear of the power of make up. We’ve all seen people made over on shows. Even Tyra’s daytime show as well as ANTM. They take these girls and through the power of hair, make up and clothes they come out looking totally transformed. It’s the same with Tyra. Make up people are artists who make lots of money to transform a face and make it look any way they want. If you google Tyra without make up you will see that she basically not changed. Perhaps the face has slimed down but that happens to all of us when we lose our baby fat. The rest is as we say mirrors and lights. So stop being haters it creates bad karma which will eventually come back to bit you in the a**. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

    98. Lo on April 28, 2009 9:51 am

      First of all, i think whether or not Tyra did anything to her body is completely her business.

      And second of all, reading all of your comments about racial issues and how “black people are trying to be white” is completely ridiculous. Its disgusting that many of the people who commented this think and act like they are superior to the rest of the world.

      I am 16 years old, in high school.
      I watch Americas Next Top Model and the Tyra Banks show.
      Sometimes Tyra can have her flaws, but humanity isnt perfect, that much you can tell by looking at all of these comments.
      I cant believe the way people see the world these days, and i am sorry i am living in this time of racism and hatred.
      Perfection is an opinion, and Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

    100. Conernec American on April 28, 2009 10:05 am

      WOW.That is really all i can say! DO we really have nothing better to do with our lives than to have a fricken war over whether or not a celebrity did or did not have plastic surgery?I usually dont even read much about celebrities. Why, you ask? It is not any of my business. The “star” life looks so glamorous in magazines, but in actuality is sucks.
      People just like you(and me) are constantly reading about peoples marriages, children, affairs, etc. Stuff that we would never want people to discuss.As for the racist issue i am truly ashamed that we are still so prejudice and full of hate.This is America we are all free! We all have privleges that many people in other countries have never and will never get to experience.I am friends with people that are all different cultures and races! I am not saying you have to do the same,but think of how this world would be if people reached out to one another despite race or color. We should all be helping each other in this time of crisis, instead of fighting. For all the women that were writing racist comments, I will be praying for you.

      It doesnt have to be like this. As for Tyra, I love her! Maybe she has gotten plastic surgery, who cares? I certainly will not be freaking out about it.I am sixteen years old and i love America’s Next Top Model. Tyra is beautiful and i think it is time for all of you women to grow up.

    101. MO on April 30, 2009 1:07 pm

      I have no problem with plastic surgery whatever race you are. If you want something done to make yourself feel and look better, that is your OWN business. What I don’t like, is people like Tyra, and Halle Berry making comments like, “black women shouldn’t have plastic surgery” or “whatever happened to being natural, love what god gave you” 1rst quote was from Halle Berry, 2nd quote, from Tyra. These women are hypocritical and they want people to think that their noses are given by god. It’s the hypocrisy I don’t like. They don’t have to admit they got surgery, but they should not make comments like that when we all KNOW they have had work done.

    102. vov on May 15, 2009 7:17 am

    103. Does it matter? on May 18, 2009 11:44 pm

      Ummm first of all for everyone who comments on how noone on here has a life and nothing else better to do but post comments about celebrities and plastic surgery,ugh….what do you think your doing, if it didn’t matter to you, you would have never posted. And to whoever posted, “blacks are never ugly and whites try to be like us, getting plastic surgery for booty implants, getting tans etc.,” ummm ever since when do you have to be black to be some kind of SUPER female. Ugh, you don’t have to be black to have a booty honey, trust me I know this. And it sounds to me the “whites” aren’t the only ones on this page that have the racial issues, terms like “us” speaks for itself. Um get a life. And you should really invest in some education to correct those spelling errors of yours. Go figure, just another ignorant uneducated person in this world. In a nutshell, I very much love Tyra’s talkshow. I’m not one to judge an individual based on what public portrays when it comes to ridiculous controversy over little things such as this. The criminals on MSNBC and the news are a whole different story. Tyra is not just a celebrity and you don’t REALLY know her, your just familiar with her image. I think she is a positive influence and it’s not like she’s out killing people or something. Goodness, their are starving people in Ethiopia, people need to realize how blessed they really are and work on their pessimistic perspectives and attitudes towards people. It is the year of 2009, get real.

    104. Does it matter? on May 19, 2009 12:09 am

      P.S. black people were not the only slaves in history. Does holocaust ring any bells? And for the record, slavery began within the African American race. African Americans sold eachother for MONEY. There were three main reasons a person was enslaved, first: repayment of a debt, second: violation of a law i.e. robber, murder, and third: THE most common way, through war and conquest. Which occured a lot, some hundred years ago. Racism didn’t lead to slavery, but rather slavery lead to racism. European culture developed an ideology to defend slavery that made their culture superior and other cultures, particularly African, inferior. I HIGHLY suggest before anyone posts their INCORRECT information reguarding slavery, race, etc. that you brush up on your history and consider attending an ap Sociology course. Seriously.

      y’all are stoopid, its called the trick of make up contouring, she still have the same nose, but with some shadings of darker make up u can shape your nose to how u want it to look.

      One of the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.

      Hey guess what people? It’s 2009 and the American president is HALF BLACK AND HALF WHITE. Racism may not be over, and it is certainly still rampant from BOTH sides (I’ve experienced soooo much racism from black and Mexican chicks, and I’ve seen the opposite, too). It’s time for change, time to set aside our physical differences and become the intelligent, intellectual and civilized HUMAN BEINGS that we were all supposed to be. Who the hell cares about celebrities? Go read a f*ckin book and learn something USEFUL. Get an education and DO SOMETHING. Don’t just sit on lame plastic-surgery websites and bitch all day. The lack of proper grammar and spelling is absolutely APPALLING on this site. Go learn the English language before you can call yourself and AMERICAN. Be thankful of your precious life and don’t be so quick to judge others.

      *an American.

    109. non-american caucasian female on May 29, 2009 6:59 pm

      Also, it’s not only white people who can be racist. Not only have I experienced totally racism from black women, but THE WORST I have seen is blacks being racist against “darker” blacks, or lighter blacks who aren’t “black enough.” Maybe if you black folks spent more time loving yourselves you wouldn’t be constantly thinking that other people hate you for being black.

      im sorry but never in a million years would i want to be white. I wake up everyday and look in the mirror and realize how fly i am therefore I give all my thanks to god! truth be told every race have ugly people. so lets not go ther about the big noses and looking like monkeys cause yall white motherfukers be having them long ass dick noses, littlelips, fucked up skin and on top of that yall look like yall 50 when your only 20 so I thank god every day that im a sexy chocolate chick, dont need all the blonde hair nose jobs ect. im the shit and the urrine you better believe it and so is my girl Tyra Banks!

      I re posted a few of these comments to show how a majority of the people posting comments on this sight can not spell. You deserve a pat on the back for even being able to use a key board!!. Do yourselves a favor,and go back to school. Speaking directly to “BlaqGurl” , I think I may have became more intelligent by ATTEMPTING to read your posts. Yeah,you are right,you are the “shit and urine” because every single thing you’ve posted belongs in the toilet. I assume you were speaking literal about yourself lol. You are one dumb bitch, and i think your user name says it all. Continue speaking like you’ve never received an education( from the looks of it, you probably never have) That is definitely something you should be proud of and flaunt. NOT!!

      And Olivia,You make BlaqGurl sound like a genius, SURPRISINGLY. Please do us all a favor and never post anything as stupid as you did,It’s an embarrassment to yourself.

      And gurlie, Yes you sound SO MUCH SMARTER then those you are insulting. You give the African-American race a bad name. Yes, stand up and be loud and overly aggressive, Because that “gurlie” Will get you killed. That’s where a percentage of homicides come from. So smart and classy!!!!

      If you’re going to insult someone, then at least TRY to sound somewhat intelligent. They’re is racism everywhere and while some try to eliminate,You just add gasoline to the fire by putting down a specific race. Who said beauty is a physical attribute,Why can’t it be deeper? Who’s to say each and every person in a specific race all look the same. No one does!!! HELLO?!

      But most of all, It is so unbelievably irritating how three fourths of you idiots can’t even spell a word that you should have been taught when you were three. No wonder why out of every country in the world, WE have the most racism,homicides and problems. Key to why we are looked down on. YOU MORONIC DUMB ASSES ARE THE REASON.

      And to those who I offended, You set yourself up for insult being as stupid as you are. So if anything thank me for hopefully shining some light and acuity to your poor, useless brains.

      :)

      Peace.

    127. lvrgrl on July 12, 2009 6:01 pm

      Unbelievable…I accidentally stumbled across this page and decided to read it because I’m bored. I honestly don’t care what kind of plastic surgery Tyra or anyone else has had. That is their business, not mine. I love Tyra but I do agree that she is hypocritical on some issues but can you really think back and say you’ve never been? I have. Not often, but I have in the past. And no I’m not condoning it. Also I want to say how shocked I am at how incredibly stupid people are. NO ONE is better than anyone. The only people who are worth less than anyone are the people going around saying that they are superior to anyone because of their race or anything stupid like that. I just turned 16 and I can figure this out…you people need help. I still just can’t stand living in a world with people like this…everyone here is human, were all on this planet together, cliche as it is, it’s true so get used to it. Stop the hate. Stop all of it, its not right!! and it doesn’t get you anywhere…Do you feel better after you insult someone? I know I sound like a friggen elementary school teacher or something lol but honestly, that is how people act and I’m ashamed of it. I wish the world wasn’t like this..I hope atleast one person who reads this agrees with me…?

    128. sandra on July 23, 2009 9:24 pm

      i think tyra is a very beatiful woman inside and out , and you white people jealous from her so dont say that she fake cuz you might be fake not her >>> please do not say bad thing about black people . i mean obama is a black and he is the presdent of USA do you have comment people

    129. Emmanuela on August 6, 2009 2:07 pm

      For the people who are talking about Tyra bleaching her skin, do you guys remember when Beyonce had an issue with a magazine that published her on the front cover had airbrushed her lighter than she was? That could have happened to tyra on many occasions, who knows. But about her being lighter…well I was a very dark child when i was younger, but upon coming here I got lighter brown. Maybe it’s the water?? This is a crazy society we live in.

    130. NO SUCH THING AS RACE on August 8, 2009 12:53 pm

      Was reluctant to add on to such an old thread, but since its 5am in the morning and I cant sleep oh, well… First up, its clear to see who is educated and who isn’t from your writing standards. It seems to me that you guys have more to cause to worry about the quality of education in America than whether Ty Ty Ba

    131. Cillen on August 11, 2009 6:21 am

      You know what? all these comments are bullshit! so what if she had some surgeries? SHE brings out the “figured” models in the media. SHE is beutiful!
      Even houswifes does plastic surgeries?
      Omg ppl who put gossip and comments ab things like this need to get a life, and stop be jelouse of someones elses who worked therer ass of all their life!

    132. dumb on August 16, 2009 7:38 pm

      lol tans? people dont get tans to look black you dumb bitch. botox usually is for filling lines and as for ass implants, those bitches are nasty anyway.

      Tyra banks is plastic fantastic all the way.
      Seriously, she’s been raised in an environment where superficiality rules above all… Of course she ended up fake and shallow, Hollywood is the fakeness capital of the world – they’re all acting 24/7; they do it so much they don’t even know who they are.

    137. Ray on October 4, 2009 6:33 pm

      Tyra is pretty, had a lot of work done yes but she is pretty. The funniest thing about these comments are from people saying whites try to look black. Yes they tan yet they stop way short of becoming black. I know there isn’t a tanning booth that would go that far but if you want to be truthful what woman would go that far if possible? Ok there may be a few but they are they would be too busy making their tenth trip to Maury to find who is their baby’s father.

    138. Ted on November 3, 2009 4:12 pm

      Oh look another topic on race from Americans. Welcome to America, the most screwed up country. It must be a chore being an American

    139. Chanel on November 5, 2009 10:35 am

      I am sad at this discussion (which turned into a useless argument about race blah blah).. I am most ashamed at humanity and by reading all the comments, we have obviously not evolved. However some of the comments do make me feel positive about the future of mankind. I am not perfect, but I know better, out of shear common sense, not to treat anyone how I would not want to be treated.

      I would normally think it was pointless to leave a comment, but maybe not so I will anyway. Even some of the people that seem heart felt and neutral about racism, are coming off one sided. I can actually tell after reading half way thru a comment what race you may be or what side your geared more towards. To me it doesn’t matter. Why not state a point, and not judge or put anyone down. Gee z, I used to think Americans were just grateful to live in such a diverse, attempting at least to be a free nation. WOW, no wonder your politicians are invading countries, killing innocents, soo money and power hungry, that your educational structure and Main stream Media, Tv, News as well as your food and water are__Smokes and Mirrors. I am NOT criticizing and I apologize if anyone takes it that way. But it is what it is.

      No one can be a good person or ever obtain wisdom, health, happiness if they project negative energy towards anyone in this life.

      Hint: Why do you think people get others to do their dirty work for them? Think!

      I am not lecturing, preaching or whatever, I am just expressing here.. Tyra is in reality a reflection of ourselves and I don’t know her personally, but I know she is a GOOD SOUL. She has to be to do what she is doing with the shows I have seen about uplifting anyone who is anything from fat, gay, woman, man, alien etc. Her personal decisions were hers whether they were hypocritical or not. She is entitled to change her mind-life-at any time she chooses. I CANNOT and will not criticize anyone but I do understand some of the frustration with the ignorant or lack of knowledge comments. Knowledge is power! Tyra may keep her life a secret and make her own decisions, idc, she is giving back and helping to develop a better world if not help many ‘not so smart’ people see the potential in themselves-feel comfortable about it- and become whatever they desire to be. Self acceptance is the 1st most greatest thing anyone could achieve b/c after that, the possibilities for a confident person is endless. Notice I said confident, not cocky. I am proud of Tyra for the way she responds to people in general. Nothing more or nothing less. Like I said, I don’t know her, however I support many of her opinions and views. Whether she believes her own words or not, if she speaks positive truths, then I got her back.

      My goodness, some of you do really sound hateful and insane. Can you imagine what the people in power think of you? This is why there is so much corruption, b/c they are just like this. And what the teacher teaches, the student learns. That is until the student learns the truth. Gee z can we all see here the validity in the statement “Its like the blind leading the blind”? You have children reading this and still have no respect for even them. Wow!

      But I’m sure that most of you who even cared to comment is not truly racist but confused and angry souls. I am too, but I do not HATE anyone b/c I am YOU and YOU are ME. Whether you people see it like this or not. GOD, ALLAH, etc. Whatever you call the most high, our creator put us here point blank. One has to be a fool to think humans just popped up out of thin air. I respect the unseen forces and are willing to deal with what and who I am as a black women in this harsh society. Make the best of what I am until the day of MY judgment. Our species is driving themselves insane over conflict that Hateful individuals have created and use to control the masses throughout history. Please people lets get smarter than this. Lets make our representatives accountable for these out of control banks, politicians, corporations, wars, mercury toxin filled vaccines (to dumb the public down so that their receptive to government control), our water (which is being poisoned with fluoride, among other things), our food (which has turned to genetically modified non recognizable by the body JUNK food), the BILLIONS of people being intentionally murdered and starving all over the world, (and this stupid theory our society wants us to adopt that makes it OK to be greedy, and wealthy and ignore the starving and the poor), the cover up with the entire American health care system and credit card banking system (that is strickly run like a business instead of keeping the best interest of the human being and humanity as a whole first), need I go on’ This my people is wrong ALL WRONG. This is what we need people to cherish their elders and not worship youth for nothing. Wisdom comes from education and experience. And not always paid education either.

      Okay I have wrote your ears off, I just hope to have made my point and lit up a light bulb somewhere. I really love all people. I have been thru hell yes but who hasn’t? I do not take that out on anyone or anything. I am still a work in progress tho. Aren’t we all? Peace and Love- and not the kind that this world gives!

      I’m so sick of those noses with such thin bridges. It’s unnatural and awkward

      Isn’t there beauty in all different colored women? Women get jealous of women all the time regardless of race!

    142. lolz on November 30, 2009 4:05 pm

      Tyra is so fake,and maybe she doesnt have breast implants but she sure did get something done,most likely a fat transfer from somewhere in her body to her breast,also known as fat grafting..

    143. dumb people on November 30, 2009 4:08 pm

      People dont get tans to look black,i go to the tanning salon all the time,and not to look black LMFAO no,thats not what i want,i go tanning cause im very pale,i love my pale skin but for once i wouldnt mind a bit of a tan,so c’mon stop saying fair skinned people want to look black,we are beautiful in our own way just like everyone else.

    145. melo on December 7, 2009 1:40 pm

      i think that 90% of you are completely and totally retarded (yes, i’ll use that term because i’m speaking thier ignorant language). The people who are accusing others of being racist on this post…seem to be making the most racist comments. Not only is that self defeating, but it makes you look stupid. Try dissecting your thoughts…and what you are trying to convey BEFORE making a post. It’s sad that some of you have such strong opinions on what this women has or has not done to herself physically……why? Why do you care? Are you so bored with your own mundane life that you have nothing else to be passionate about. This will be my only statement….i will never even look at this post again…my time is too valuable. I would hate to waste another second on you morons. To the others here….the 10% or so worthy of having an opinion…..PEACE!

    146. Leah Ma on December 19, 2009 9:56 pm

      The most beautiful women in this country are the mixed black/ white women. The 2nd most beautiful are Eurasians. After that it gets confusing. Anyone’s choice is good!

    147. Leah Ma on December 19, 2009 10:00 pm

      Oh, I forgot to add. I am white, a bit native American and my husband is Chinese but I also have black relatives, hispanic ones, japanese ones, so who could possibly call me a racist. Besides one of the most stunning girls I ever saw was very black. She looked like queen nefetiti. Leah Ma

    148. Shiniqua on December 23, 2009 12:46 pm

      Tyra Banks did not have a boob job as the atricle above just stated dumb ass so you can get your facts right cant you you ignorant asshole, and even if she has had a nose job or anything else its got shit to do with anyone else. People are only saying shit about her cos shes beautiful and you is a ugly ass bitch so lay off her OHKAII?

    149. Miriam on January 31, 2010 9:31 pm

      If you think the only racist comments on this page are directed to blacks you’re racist.
      If you think the only racist comments on this page are directed to whites you’re racist.
      What you all have in common: ignorance. Your prejudice inhibits your ability to see what’s really going on.
      What black features do white women covet? Large buttocks, breasts, hips, curves, big lips, tans (Southern Europeans are the only “whites”capable of having healthy tans, why do you need to have darker skin if you’re naturally white? Bottom line, if you have to work hard to change it, you’re imitating another race).

      What white features do black women covet? Straight / narrow noses, long straight hair, natural leanness, light colored eyes, fair skin (i.e. bleaching cream & avoiding the sun. Bottom line, if you have to work hard to change it, you’re imitating another race )

      Since you can’t seem to see it, I’ll clue you in: You all secretly want to be like each other… think about it. Bleach blonde, tanned white women are just as fake as weave & colored contact wearing black women.

      Angry black posters should ditch the stereotypical aggressive behavior. It only justifies / encourages closet racists. Closet white racists need to recognize they’re racists who create and justify the very same black stereotypes they abhor. Would any of you say this at your job in front of coworkers belonging to the race you’re imitating yet insulting?

      Why hasn’t the page on Angelina Jolie’s nose job erupted in racism? For every Lil Kim there’s a Heidi Montag. For every Michael Jackson, a Joan Rivers. For every Sammy Sosa bleacher, a Kim Kardashian / Coco butt enlargement. Fascinating, how far we’ve come and how much further we have to go.

      BTW, I’m sure Tyra cries about your comments every night when she counts her money.

    150. iliana fischer on February 3, 2010 1:20 pm

      Tyra acts like she has Psychology degrees and life experience and ALL YOU FOOLS BELIEVE HER EVERY WORD AS IF SHE WERE SOME SORT OF SUPERGENIUS SOCIOLOGIST,RESERACHER OR CERTIFIED LIFECOACH;yet, she’s been a sheltered model all her life, with no REAL life experience or college education….

      SHE’S ALL A FRAUD-TRUST ME- I WAS ON HER SHOW.I USED TO ADMIRE HER AND WANT TO BE LIKE HER NOW I THINK SHE HAS NO SOUL AND IS AN EVIL,PREDATORY BITCH WILLING TO DO OR SAY ANYTHING TO MAKE MONEY OFF WHITE PEOPLE AND EXPLOIT THEM…

      SHE NEEDS A PSYCHIATRIST HERSELF…
      SHE SCARES ME AND SO DOES THE POWER SHE HAS OVER YOUNG OR IGNORANT MINDS…

    151. Joe Nzomo on February 9, 2010 11:49 pm

      I think tyra is great. She full a beauty and she paragon of virtue. Ain’t nothing bad straightening sheself here and there! After all life is an art & we the designers and we all dowit time and again. Keep it up Tyra. You great !!!

      Joe

    152. Get the real point on February 22, 2010 5:55 pm

      Okay for all of the racists wether white,black,hispanic,etc you need to spend time educating yourself before posting here or anywhere. Next I have to address the idiots babbling on about people trying to be white,black, etc. Who cares!? Those loosers have identity problems that need to be resolved by themselves. They probably have bigger self-esteem issues and need to learn to love themselves for how they were born and how god created them(for those who believe in god or claim to). Lastly, here’s my point and the main problem. I’m not a Tyra fanatic or that familiar with her but I know enough to conclude she is a hypocrite. I have researched many of her pictures(childhood-current) and noticed the difference in color. I’m talking a noticible difference and in some pictures it looks like she is wearing make up a couple shades lighter than her natural skin tone. I also noticed her nose looks completely different. In the posted picture where it shows her from high school next to a recent picture I noticed she has no bridge in the high school picture as opposed to the recent picture. Also the recent picture looks like she had alot of skin lightening because dark skinned people don’t loose tans easily. I know this as a fact and it’s not based on opinion but knowledge. So it’s not whether or not she is “trying to be white” or “trying to be beautiful” (which I’m not accusing her of I just noticed some alterations) but it’s these alterations which make her a hypocrite. She is a hypocrite because she preaches women should love who they naturally are without having to get surgery or lighten/tan themselves,etc when she is doing all of these things herself. I don’t care that she “changed” or people think she is “pretty” what bothers me is someone preaching that something is wrong or unneccessary and then doing it themselves. Especially when it’s people who know they are hypocrites whether it be celebrities,politicians,family, or even strangers. I hate hypocrictes of every size,shape,color, and gender. It’s simple DO NOT PREACH SOMETHING YOU DONT PRACTICE YOURSELF! No matter what it is just be genuine, if you wear weaves then be able to say confidently “I wear weaves but it’s none of your damn business” or if your a white collar politician “I have  intimate relationships with other male politicians” just be honest. If there is anything to hate in this world it’s fake people and the “standard” spectrum of beauty in society which holds European features as ideal. I think what it all comes down to is people trying to oppress others wheher it may be about race or gender we need to break free from these shackles lest we never truly be free from racism,sexism,class discrimination. Just Educate yourselfs and be true to you. Who cares what others think those ass wipes don’t pay your bills or put a roof over your head and you live only   once(you never know how long at that). Just keep it mind as long as your height and weight porpotionate and healthy that’s all that matters superficially.

      To all those people, white or black, who have made degrading and hostile comments in attempts to attack one another based on their race, you are all so ignorant, insecure, shallow, petty and primitive. I am so sad and ashamed to see that there are still people like you in this world. yet I am not surprised, as it is because of all of you, that we are still killing each other.

      who are any of you to say what is beautiful, what is right, and what is wrong?

      to all the people who thinks black people are trying to look like white: 1st, we are all victims of American Television, 2nd don’t forget that cosmetic surgery was originated and became prevalent in North America at the beginning, and still is. so why is it ok for white woman to do surgery, going back to Elizabeth Taylor, to Cher, and now to Megan Fox, but when Tyra does something it’s all of a sudden “trying to be white”?

      to the people who thinks that white people are trying to look more like Black: please, by saying this you are actually stereotyping all black people as petty. just remember, people who attacks black people are themselves petty and racists, so by attacking them back with what they said in fact lowers all my Black friends down to the same level as them, if not lower.

      She needed the nose job and her boobs are too big. She is trying to look white and not only is her body fake,she is a big PHONY! Can’t stand her. Blacks always pulling out the race card, but again most of them wanting to be white. She is not attractive no matter what.

    160. Lela on December 17, 2010 4:23 pm

      It’s true, most blacks want to be white, so don’t lie about it all of you hipocrites. You play the race card whenever it suits you but even you nigs talk about how light or dark your fellow nigs are. Tyra needed a nose job and her boobs are too big. She is a wanna be who will never be–never be attractive, sexy or even interesting. She is a big PHONY who pretends to care about other people, especially those less fortunate than herself, which is so not who she really is. She could not care less about anyone but herself!

      it is sad to know that until right now american’s still look at black people worst…
      i thought america had united as one and each and everyone live peacefully… I just read conversation right now, maybe it’s too late for me to know this…but as i read your comments i just think that you had gone farther a little bit to your main topic… tyra is the only topic here but as you had change your different opinions about her i just notice that tyra is not just the one you were criticizing for… It’s the whole african-american people…

      So i will go straightly…
      So why if Tyra had undergo on a plastic surgery or whatever… you don’t care if she did that as long as she doesn’t step on your rights and doesn’t hurt your ego.. she’s just trying to express what she wants the way god had given her a rights to live and express what she want…

      And going back to the african-american people,
      all of us were born on this world with equalities… the same rights as well and god had given us that rights so why should you criticize them… maybe it’s the feeling that you want to express but still there are rules that you have to remember in giving your thoughts… I should say that it is below the belt…

      I am a Filipino and I’m just trying to point out my opinions and I just want to be in between of your conversation for you to know that all of us, I mean the whole world, doesn’t need a critics and despite that we must love each other and respect different cultures as well….

      maybe there are some sentence that is grammatically wrong but do pardon me for that and i hope, all of you understand my point of view… peace, love, ice cream! PAGKAKAISA TUNGO SA KAPAYAPAAN… (unity through peace)

      Anyone claiming they are not “racist” on this website is an obvious hypocrite. First of all if they didn’t think blacks were ugly, why would they be on this website in the first place? Everyone thinks it anyways, so might as well say it. It doesn’t make you “racist” to think black people are ugly. We’re not talking about rights or equality, we’re talking about looks. I even think my own race of chicks is ugly. I’m brown and the bottom line is black girls are the ugliest. They got big wide noses, big ass lips, mustaches or some shit, f*ed up hair, and their personality doesn’t help them either. Tyra obviously is a hypocrite and has had a nose job.

    163. whatbs on June 15, 2011 11:17 am

      And about the issue of white women tanning and shit. I would say that the facial features of black women are extremely undesirable, but it doesn’t mean that all their features are undesirable. Same goes for any race of chicks. White women age bad, etc. Black chicks have a nice *ss body. I think the main reason black women are ugly is based on evolution. Black people tend to select mates based on their fertility, so they choose women with nice bodies and ignore the facial features. This is probably why black men on average have a slightly larger d*k and black women have the “hourglass” figure. This by nature makes them more promiscuous and incapable of holding down a family. Hence, the orphaned blacks. It’s also in their culture to be loud and obnoxious; this can be observed by watching their natives banging drums and yelling like f*k. Bottom line is, I’m glad I’m not black and I’m sure you all think the same.

      Regardless of if she’s had plastic surgery or not, I will still shoot ropes and drop loads over her sexy body. Believe that.

      Oh puh-lease people. This mammogram thing is an old staple of Japanese TV that’s trotted out by Japanese actresses who had breast enhancements trying to deny it (Eg Aki Hoshino)
      1) You don’t know if the results of the mammogram on screen were Banks’ breasts or someone else’s.
      2) Banks’ was never going to pick a surgeon who was going to say she had implants.
      3) Perhaps the Doctor/Surgeon WAS telling the truth, Banks did not have *implants* – she had either fat injections or stem cell injections – the 2 newest forms if breast enhancement pioneered in Japan.
      Either way, the shiny, semi-hard melons she has now are not the boobs she had 10 years ago.

      They are fake and having an ultrasound done would not show them because all that shows is tissue! She did have them done along with her nose…no denying it!!! People who are skinny don’t have big breasts like what she has!! Besides, you don’t go from small to gigantic and still stay the same body size!!

      I actually love Tyra (I may be the only one!) but I think she had implants when she was still modeling. I know she did the whole xray thing, but who’s to say she didn’t have implants removed since her modeling days? I think it’s obvious she had them at one point.
