Tyra Banks dares to discuss ‘what’s up down there’

Tyra Banks is devoting her entire show on Monday to the vagina. Yes, that’s right. The female vagina. It will be an entire hour-long episode about the ins and outs of the mysterious lady part. People reports:

“I have wanted to do this show for two years,” says Banks, 33. “I know for a lot of women talking about what is going on in our bodies is extremely difficult, but it is incredibly important.”
She added, “We should be able to talk to our daughters, sisters, mothers and friends about our bodies and not be embarrassed. I hope after this show women will not be ashamed about what’s up down there.”

Great. So now I know what’s really been on Tyra Banks’ mind all these years. Burdened with this information how am I supposed to enjoy reruns of America’s Next Top Model? I’ll be sitting there wondering if Tyra was really upset when Caridee insulted Nigel or was she just thinking about vaginas? When Janice Dickinson spoke was Tyra actually listening or was she noticing that Janice’s collagen lips look like a huge vagina? And how would she make a segment out of that for her show? Haven’t you heard? It’s about vaginas.

  1. LOL, #18! I can’t even remember what I was going to say – baby batter, freaking hilarious!

    YAWN. THE VIEW DID THIS SHOW YEARS AND YEARS AGO. THE EXACT SAME THING. IT WAS CONTROVERSIAL AND PEOPLE COMPLAINED THEN. TYRA SUCKS SO BAD.

    She’s the Muhammed Ali of all trannies.

    I don’t watch talk shows, but I’ll be watching this one!

    I remember reading a long time ago that she had a baby. Now you never hear ONE word about it. Does anyone know if she gave it up for adoption, or what??

    Maybe you all should take a look at your grammar before being so “high and mighty”. I honestly couldn’t digest most of the comments, due to the spelliing and grammatical errors. I could care less about the Tyra Show, but this is absurd.

  7. Probably whats up “down there” is some stank shit.

  8. S. Johnson

    #56: It’s “couldn’t care less.” If you could care less, you must care about Tyra somewhat.

    You know it’s funny, she’s getting so much negative press for this and yet why shouldn’t she do a show about this. So many women stand to learn so much from it: first and foremost, there is nothing shameful about our bodies. Take this one point into consideration: it is perfectly acceptable that the majority of men masturbate but most women don’t come to terms with this til they are in their 20′s. Why do we perpetuate this stereotype. Like her or not, women like Tyra are breaking the mold, changing the perception…are you FOR female empowerment or AGAINST?

    P.S. Totally agree with #50.

    Funny thing is, I bet most of you have never gotten off, have no idea what true love is, and no concept of self-love…don’t worry, most women don’t…the only difference being that you all seem to advocate it, personify it- self-hate has never been more evident than in the majority of the last 50 or so comments. Revel in the glory of your own self-destruction.

    I hope this isn’t a stupid question, but what the heck is a vagina?

  14. WTF?

    I for one don’t think this woman has much of a personality, but I do think this show could be good for “womankind.”

    She is gorgeous, she’s so cute. Her personal blog was found at a millionaire&celebrity dating site meetrich docom not long before. The site is turning hot!

  16. Why does she assume women would want to watch that? I, personally, would rather die a horrible, horrible death.

    # 63: No, that isn’t a stupid question. A “vagina,” you you put it (I’ve heard it called different things), is a fleshy orifice found on roughly half the human population. It’s used for many things, including sex and reproduction, but is primarily infamous as the cause of endless discord and even warfare (see, e.g., the tales of Adam and Eve in the Old Testament and of Helen of Troy by that ancient Greek poet, now deceased). Finally, as #’s 61 & 62 point out in remarkably similar fashion (albeit under different names and one minute apart), I have heard that the so-called “vagina” also may be used for “self-love” (whatever that is).

    You Americans are shit.

    Nobody is attacking her for educating people, something that we can both agree is
    useful, we are attacking her because she both naively thinks she’s doing something cutting edge and because she’s doing it for her own self aggrandizement. Ever watch her show? It’s a half hour ego trip. We’re attacking her because she’s just going to make it about herself, just like when Parasite Hilton announced she was going to Rwanda (thankfully that fell through, since those good people have suffered enough).

    #69

    You are obviously new here. If you weren’t you’d know we tend to just laugh at little children like yourself who try desperately to rile us Americans up with snide, knee-jerk anti-American comments, then go about our business as if nothing happened. Go somewhere else if you want to spark an argument and get attention, we tend to just ignore drunken trolls like yourself.

  21. KamUK

    @58 in the US they say “I could care less” in the UK it’s “I couldn’t care less” they both have the same meaning.
    I prefer the latter because I am British so I would, no doubt our Yankee friends prefer the former.

  22. The Obvious

    #71: B. Garner, “Modern American Usage” (p. 204): “Couldn’t care less is the correct and logical phrasing, not could care less . . . . If you could care less, you’re saying that do care some.”

    she should be talking about what’s up her plastic rack! just b/c your breast implants are saggy cuz they’re 10+ yrs old doesn’t mean they’re natural miss have-a-doctor-declare-your-breast-implants-are-breast-tissue-on-your-stupid-talk-show.

  24. Mama Pinkus

    I wonder if she’ll have a doctor do a sonogram to determine if her twat is real like she did with her boobies

    Dare to be different think openly. Not everyone knows everything and can talk about just anything anytime…. people, personalities, situations, etc are different. if reality shows can put unrealistic views on for entertainment then Tyra can talk and open up the door for realistic views about the Human body. Schools cant do it, parents wont do it , music videos do it, magazine ads are doing it… they are just not as Blunt with it… education, education EDUCATION BY WHATEVER MEANS NECESSARY. you can never assume that just because you know something that another person knows it too.

    Thank you Tyra.

    Tell it, g’rl! No one’s going to “empower” a group of people like a black person. Shit. Watch-out.

    Ya’ know, I’m the only male in an office filled with women and I gotta say, women talk about their bodies continuously. “Girl, I have this ache in my breast.” “Do you ever leak from your clitoris?” That’s the kind of stuff I hear on a daily basis.

    I have a white leather wallet. But I have a picture of my old brown leather wallet that I carry inside of my white leather wallet, so that I’ll remember what Tyra’s vagina looks like. . . . . . fucking stupid dizzy cunt. Ps. You know she’s jumped the shark when she’s doing a vagina show – She should just go on http://www.brutaldildos.com, and get it over with.

    In the main pic it looks like she’s giving everyone the finger.

    How much longer before Beelzebub goes back on his promise to this biotch?!

    the comments on this site tend to be racist… are you guys affiliated with the KKK?

  33. Seriously, you guys are all racists. I know you’re affiliated with the KKK. I think you need to be educated, not only about how to respect black people, but in how not to have sex with your family members and with a random assortment of barnyard animals. You are all stupid, racist, redneck, white crackers.

    Please, please, please, go to my site by clicking on my name “james” in blue. This is not an attempt at trolling. I promise, I swear to God, I am not trolling. Please go to my site now, watch the video which will help you overcome your loathsome racism and leave a comment. Please, we all bleed red.

    Sincerely,

    james

    Tyra looks like the confused indonesian maids in malaysia.

    I’ve seen that show and it’s nothing special. It was actually very boring. Much like all of her other topics.

  36. elva

    she is sexy in this clothes and cool in this headtower.maybe this is her style, because her photos on sugarcupid.com are also like this one. it suits her.

  37. dienesha

    you fuckin pepole are all so stupit and miss informed its a damn shame the only black woman you will except having there own talk show is that fake ass bitch opera and the only reason you love her is because she forgot where the hell she came from and what it actually took to get her to where she is now. AH HA and thats why she gavw away all those fucked up ass saturns you really thought you were getting something she played you just like the rest of black america. I LOVE YOU TYRA KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND GOD FIRST.

  38. anonymous

    I don’t get comments like hers at all. Honestly WHY is it so important to talk about private things outside of I don’t know PRIVATE forums, say a doctor’s visit or within intimate relations? Honestly if private parts are private then why do we need to talk about them on talks shows? It so strange because when people make such statements as hers they so often use the term private parts, when their actions really show that they don’t think them such. Freedom and democracy rely on individuation, which requires keeping something private and having boundaries. Completely foreign to today’s society.
