Calm down, Top Model fiends. We know it was alleged today that Tyra Banks is desperate to dump the popular American’s Next Top Model in order to focus on her mediocre talk show. Apparently there’s also a rift between her and Mr. Jay Manuel that’s also adding to her supposed exit. But let’s be real – that ain’t NEVER gonna happen!
1. If Tyra doesn’t like someone, she just gives them the boot! If Mr. Jay was really that much of an issue, wouldn’t he be expelled just like Janice Dickenson, Twiggy and Nole Marin? Tyra loves kicking people off her show – it’s the whole basis of Top Model!
2. Let’s be frank – girlfriend LIVES for this show. She loves counseling young souls who look up to her with giant doe eyes almost as much as she loves berating them from her perch in the judging room (see video above for proof). How could she give that up?
3. America’s Next Top Model is by far THE most important show to air on television since its inception over sixty years ago. I Love Lucy, Sixty Minutes, Saturday Night Live – these shows pale in comparison to the cultural significance Top Model represents. It is beyond groundbreaking and earth shattering programming – it is a weekly revolution. [Ed. note: I’m only saying this in case Tyra IS serious about taking away Top Model. We need our weekly fierce fest!]
