Tyra Banks is People Magazine’s covergirl this week, fighting back against the tabloids for mocking her after gaining 30 pounds. The ex-model is happy with her post-model size and claims, “If I had lower self-esteem, I would probably be starving myself right now.” At 5’10″, 161 lbs., and with “all the self-esteem installed in me, the criticism still hurts.” Check out the full article below!

    Tyra is one big pain-in-the-a**. I am so tired of her gum flapping . Poor thing, she leads such a horrid life.

    The armpit pose must be popular. First Beyonce and now Tara. I guess it must make a person look thinner when they pose that way. I would try it, but I am sure that it won’t have the same effect and may get me arrested.

    She’s not fat, to as skinny ass girl who only weighs 98lbs, Yes..
    After years of having to be skinny for her career, cant blame her for
    eating like a normal person now. She looks perfectly fine to me.
    Skinny is so not in, especially when your not naturally skinny.

    da hell? Tyra is fine as hell! The girl is healthy and lovely! See, hollywood has a F*&* up view of beauty, and unfortunately these poor white girls are buying in to this “distorted” crap and dying as a result! She is the epitome of “beauty and class” she is down to earth and for real, aint nobody perfect especially these celebs the media needs to stop portraying them as such! Hell, personally I look better than most of them anyway, I may not be rich or famous but I am happy and healthy! GO TYRA! i gotcha back, from one healthy sexy girl to another! HOLLA

    Tyra looks like a real woman – curvy, healthy and beautiful. The publications (STAR, Enquirer) that printed the photos of her saying she’s fat are targeted towards women. They are just sensationalistic garbage. Men don’t read these publications…and men think that TYRA is gorgeous. They love her curves. Skinny, bony, skeletal, unhealthy bodies are a turn-off. I applaud Tyra for this. She is 161 lbs and absolutely beautiful! I wish that more young women out there would realize they are not doing themselves any favours by starving themselves. I have always been naturally curvy and the guys have always pursued me. Maybe it’s because I was eating real food so my hair and skin always look glowing and healthy. I am happily married, but if I were I guy, I’d be in love with TYRA!

    um… still fat
    she doesnt eat like a normal person, because she is overweight. she eats more than a normal person. and even if most women out there look like that, it’s still overweight, it’s still unhealthy.
    let’s look at other healthy role models, like jessica biel, who is in amazing shape, healthy and happy.
    our society needs to face its problems rather than normalizing them by sugar coating things with names such as “curvy” “average” “real woman”. it’s fat and its bad for you.

    At 5’10″ and 161 lbs., she’s not considered overweight or fat. Her BMI is 23.1 which is normal.

    You go, Tyra! She isn’t fat, though they did photoshop the hell out of her here. I’m sick of people who can be stick thin and still have humongous boobs (Angelina Jolie). Having cleavage doesn’t necessarily make a curvy, healthy woman. Let’s face it, ladies, most people need a few extra pounds to have great racks and booty. With her height, 150 lbs is nothing.
    Not trying to defend celebrities because they still deserve to be ragged on, but the media is unfair to them in the weight department. Alba’s too skinny, Tyra is a lard…not every woman is lucky enough to have the body type that Scarlett has.
    Picking on Nicole Richie is old. I hate when people say the ideal Hollywood body type is to have a 12-year old boy’s figure (because it isn’t; nobody likes it). The ideal HW body is to be thin and still somehow retain a large rack and butt. That’s why Jolie bothers me so much, except that she still doesn’t have a booty.

    i think it’s assholic how some people and tabs have slammed her. i think she looks fine and will always be a gorgeous woman, regardless of weight. however, it’s not a good idea to promote pancakes and fried food as a way to live in a country where obesity is epidemic. how about finding a happy medium between eating only fruit and fish and gorging on junk? i agree that jessica biel is a great role model, but people also need to be aware that a) most people who follow jb’s regimen will still not be able to look like she does b) ditto for tyra’s regimen–most people would become much heavier on a diet like that. the best idea is to just cut the celeb bullsh*t and be healthy. don’t eat junk to excess, work out most days of the week. challenge yourself. be proud. and if someone tells you it’s not good enough, f**k em.

    Jolie’s mother just die? I read in the online newspaper and I am looking for information, but I can’t not find in anywhere!

    Who cares if she is thin or fat. And it’s obvious these photos have been airbrushed.

    On the 1993 photo, where it says that she had her chest bound with bandages, I’d like to add that I clearly remember (I have perfect memory btw) her on some show in the mid to late 90′s where she was explaining why she decided to have a boob job (“….my behind was bigger than my chest, blah, blah, blah”).

    She is a fake lyer, and whether she is 120lb or 220lb, I will never watch any of her shows.

    she had a boob job around 1996.
