Tyra Banks may know how to help young models learn to smize, but are the days numbered for the former supermodel? The America’s Next Top Model host has been in the fashion business for a long time, but her time with Victoria’s Secret might be coming to a close. Why? Apparently the brand turned her away for being too old. Yikes!
A source told RadarOnline.com that Tyra “was dying to appear on the runways as a surprise in the most recent Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show … but was rejected by the brand and the network, despite her long affiliation with the company. She’s outraged and is threatening to never work with Victoria’s Secret again.”
Those of you who follow Tyra’s career know that the 40-year-old was one of the original “Angels” from 1997 until 2005. Having a long history with the brand would definitely explain why TyTy is upset — but wait until you hear what they supposedly said!
“Tyra’s feelings were hurt because the excuse she was given is that the audience likes to see the newest models, not the ‘veterans,’ on the runway during the VS TV show,” the source explained. “Tyra doesn’t want to make a public spectacle out of the snub because it would make all the parties involved look bad. But she isn’t happy.”
We don’t blame you, Tyra! If this is true, it’s definitely not cool.
