Tyra

Fried Over

'Porkchop' Shots

1/30/2007 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tyra Banks isn't fat ... she's fabulous! Ask her, she'll tell you.

The supermodel-turned-talk diva is on a fat attack after websites posted unflattering vacation photos of her in a one-piece bathing suit. On this Thursday's episode of her eponymous show, Tyra dons the same swimsuit in an attempt to prove that the photos and headlines were wrong -- claiming that they were taken at a bad angle. Take a look, she may be right!

Banks disses and dismisses the headlines attributed to the pics, with her "favorites" being "Porkchop" and "America's Next Top Waddle."

She may have gained some weight, but she hasn't lost her sense of humor! Go Tyra.

I am sick of seeing this repulsive, ugly woman promoting herself and her opinions every chance she gets. She is very frustrated as she cannot get A MAN as she screams in her cheap ghetto voice. She is just icky, icky, icky! No man wants a vain ugly jealous girlfriend like her. Star Jones watch out - you have met your match and here comes your competition. Star is much prettier than Tyra, both inside and out!!! Star is also much thinner than Tyra hahahah!!!

Wow, what kind of world is this. A BEAUTIFUL woman, with a body anyone will kill for, and the media calls her fat, and women like Eva, and Jessica Biel are called curvy!!!!!!!!She is perfect, I mean if she was a lolipop head like 99.9% of hollywood, would she be beautiful, ge off of it. I mean this world is so hypocritical of the perception of women perpetrated by the anorexic ho's, yet when a very positve and uplifting woman, a black woman literally blazes the trail, hater are there to put it out. Let;s just hope the haters a fat, do nothing slobs, oh wait Perez Hilton is!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh come on people. This world is getting so bad no wonder every 15 year old girl is either starving herself or sticking her finger down her throat! There needs to be more people like Tyra. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having some meat on your bones. Come on guys would your rather have a 90lb girl with no ass and no chest or a healthy 130lb girl with a nice ass and chest!

Spare me, women were ment to have curves. Marilyn Manroe was the sexiest white women ever. bone's and looking like you just crawled out of a crypt is not sexy. Calista Flockhart looked like a human skeleton and was never sexy. none of these women starving themself look sexy. sick, ill and malnurished is more like it and no amount of makeup can change the look of the crypt. Tara is sexy the avarage woman is a size 12 -14 that's sexy.

I wish I looked that good in a one-piece bathing suit. She may be bigger than she used to be but she still looks great.

All of the guys that lust after women like Nichole Richie and Keira Knightley, secretly want to f*ck little boys! It's the only explanation for them being attracted to young women that have the bodies of PREPUBESCENT BOYS.

Come on out of the closet, guys...Michael Jackson will be very happy that you do.

Women are supposed to have curves! If you want "bones" you're looking at the wrong gender...

who cares if she gained weight, what is up with that terrible wig, weave whatever is on her head? I cant believe anyone could even focus on her body with that fake hairline and fake long blonde hair, at this point I do think she is completely bald.

my opinion    

She is beautiful, smart, creative and has self confidence. Tyra is the whole package. Not some plastic mental midget drunk coke head like so many in the hellish land of Los Angeles. Her right is to look like what she wants to look. She has earned the right. Plus she is interesting and has brains.

Who cares? Tyra has obviously gained weight, so what, she has a more normal body like the rest of the world, so what?? Why does she feel like she has to go on her show in a bathing suit to prove what her body looks like, give yourself a break!! Pleading with the public to say you are not fat and give you some some ego boosting is just as bad as super thin models saying they are just naturally that way. She needs to grow up!! She looks fantastic!!

Thank God finally somebody decided to stand up to the almighty unhealthy views of the press. You Go Girl! The U.S. better get a grip on it's contribution to anorexic women. THIS is what it was meant to be, a healthy woman taking up for her healthy body. _uck all of you that constantly undermind a girl's view of herself. _uck all of you that contribute to the unhealthy change a girl's view of herself transforms into......... a stick with eyes. I hope Tyra never stops this tirade. The press/media is a very sad, sad entity to even be associated with. I hope that other celebrities follow in Tyra's footsteps and flip the press a big one.... I think we will definitely support those actresses...gain the weight and spit in their face. Again, you go girl!!!
