Tyra Stars on Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is known for its WTF moments and dramas and I suppose by now everyone has slept with everyone else in the script so the producers need to invent some new drama by bringing in some big names like Hilary Duff and now Tyra Banks.

Of course, the day that Tyra got casted on the show it's all about "LOOK AT ME!!" on her talk show, but more so than usual (hard to believe). As she proudly said:

“The people at Gossip Girl tell me I set a Gossip Girl hair change record. I had SEVEN hair changes, every single scene you see is some new hair on my head,”

Wow, Tyra is an innovator for African-American models (I swear in every interview she somehow manages to bring up her hardship as a black model) and now she is going to revolutionize the world of TV drama one hair change at a time.

I`m sure that she also set a Gossip Girl record by being the biggest b*tch diva they hired on the set so far.

And perhaps I`m a bit bitter, but hearing Tyra constantly talk about the hardship of being a black model in Hollywood reminds me that all they want Asians to do in Hollywood is Kung-Fu, and most Asian girls are also too short to be runway models while most of Asian parents won't support us unless it's about academia and piano. And there's that whole squinty eye joke. And that's just life. So Tyra should get over it.


P.S Thanks for all your comments in the previous post, it was soo much fun to read!! I'm behind on comments again because work is really busy. But I will catch up on comments this weekend, and post my giveaway by the end of the weekend!

  3. ahhh! oh man i never thought about that. i mean i love tyra and all because she's such a hard core in your face type of feminist, but i guess her sharing her hardship is kinda over played.

    oh my gosh! while i was reading about how tyra was gonna be in gossip girl in my head i was like "nah uh... i think she's doing it to advertise for her show!" lol.

  8. Yeh... doesn't make me want to feel sympathetic for her because she's had it good for a long time already now :P She should just appreciate what she has now and not talk too much about how "hard" her past was...
    haha! you're so funny :p I never even thought about that but you are right! poor asian girls! :P too many hardships all at once!

  11. what is she whining about being black and goin thru so much hardship in her life when she's already succesful? can't u be more conceited or what?? now im seeing the diva in her, i dont think oprah kept telling her audience how much she went thru with her childhood or her being a black host, she just shut up and do her thing.

  14. I love Tyra & love Gossip Girl!!
    She definitely paved the way for African American models though. At least she's not as bad as Janice always saying she was the 1st ever supermodel. LMAO!

    At the end of the day it's hard for any person of color in the Hollyweird.
    Look at Native Americans for example, they had more Caucasians play their roles than actual Native Americans... still!

  15. Tyra does seem to be quite the diva. I do think it's probably hard for any person of color to make it in the game of Hollywood. I definitely agree that Asians have it really hard. There is more to Asians than just doing martial arts movies. I'd love to see Asians in romantic comedies, etc. I think Asian girls, including you, are extremely beautiful. I wish that Hollywood would let us see Asians in more than just the stereotypical roles. Plus I would love to see more Asian models and also singers as well. Great post.

  16. Totally agree with you on the Asian model paragraphs. I rarely read about celebrities but now I found that I eagerly wait for your next post about celebrities cause you rock at writing about them.

  17. Haha, Tyra Banks annoys the SHIT out of me. I love when they make fun of her talk show on Best Week Ever or The Soup.

    Totally know what you mean about Asians being short (I'm half Korean). SUCKS! My friends make an Asian joke any chance they get. But I take it with humor. Hey, they're funny! I just need to think up some white people jokes...

    ReplyDelete
  24. her complaining all the time abt her hard times is so annoying, she should get over it already! but i guess you can do that if you're a diva..

  25. I stopped listening to/watching Tyra a lonng time ago. That girl just repeats the same shit over and over and it's just annoying now.

  26. Everyone has a hard time in life! She's respected in that world of modeling now because she's like a senior at it. The NEW models are the ones that have more of a right to complain and we can't even be models because we're like midgets in the real world! haha, I took my boyfriend's little sister to register for middle school and a lot of those kids are taller than me O_O! and I'm excited for the giveaway :) I gotta go read the next post now.. LOL, I'm behind on reading blogs too! Life is getting in the way :P
