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!

    I love her,she’s a smart woman.

  • AverageWoman

    I wish I was 5’10 and 161 – instead of 5’8 and 200lbs and losing.

    She looks f-ing great!

    I love her

    tyra rocks

  • Joey

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

  • bdj

    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.

  • Angela

    She is not fat!!!!!!!!!!!!! She looks great.

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    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.

  • aseverme

    She looks great, not fat at least to me but she has always had horrible legs, weird shape

  • loverofone

    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

  • Canadian girl

    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!

  • inshape

    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.

  • me

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

  • Amy

    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.

    What a fat useless hog.

    Waddle your critical old ass into a gym.

    Tyra’s beautiful…. You go, Girl !!!!

  • http://justjared da

    Don’t hate her,she’s very look good.

  • magnus


    You’re wrong. She’s fat and disgusting inside and out.

  • gisella

    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.

  • Ava Verhaal

    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!

  • natasha

    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.

  • natasha

    she had a boob job around 1996.

  • Capriciousdiva

    I’m not putting Tyra down about her weight or anything but recently she was in a UK magazine on a beach in a swimsuit and she was way bigger in them pictures so i think some air brushing has been going on!

  • marcbrown

    She is looking pretty fine still.

  • Randi

    She looks good and I believe she would fall into the healthy weight range. However, I don’t recall her leading the ‘health’ charge 30 lbs ago.

  • Sara

    161? That’s nothin! She’s a tall woman. It’s not like she’s 5’4. Jeez. No wonder so many girls have eating disorders!

  • lauren

    i think it is crazy that she is so “proud” of her weight yet she is airbrushed within an inch of her life. also, her two different diets are pathetic. she is either eating too little or too much…wow talk about the picture of health.

  • Outta The Blue

    Although I don’t think she is fat, I don’t believe that she weighs 161 pounds. I think it is more. She is 5’10 and I’d say she weighs closer to 180. Not as bad a fib as Kirstie Ally (is that her name?) saying she weighed 145 when she appeared on Oprah—now that was a ridiculous lie–but still I think she fibbed a little. She still looks pretty good. I don’t blame her for wanting to eat now that she’s not modeling!!

  • klm

    If she wanted to prove a point then she should have requested that the photos not be airbrushed. furthermore, unless she has absolutely no muscle, she has to weigh more than 161

  • linely

    She looks great !!
    Finally a REAL WOMEN !!

  • suzanne

    she’s fat. she’s a fat dumb ni#gger

  • Audrey

    Tyra rocks! The people who are saying she’s fat are deluded…y’all remember Marilyn Monroe? Yeah she was no skinny biotch, that’s for sure. But she was fabulous. It’s a shame there are so many people who are nothing more than skin and bones these days.

    Obviously you wrote that for attention. Get a job, get a life, and an
    Oh, by the way. “Yo momma”.

  • Cheryl

    By model standards she is fat…Welcome to the real world Tyra! You still have all those millions, so GET OVER IT and stop overreacting and playing the victim role.

  • ashylarry

    I read that article. She looks good, but her “regular” diet is awful. People should not be eating fried foods on a regular basis.



    You are not worth the toilet paper she use to wipe her big fine
    fluffy.. a s s ……. and there’s nothing dumb about getting .. RICH..

  • lolla

    yeah i lovve her , she is not like other stupid models, she likes herself and that’s really ok! she isnt fat!

  • dina#

    INSHAPE, I so do agree with you. While Tyra has a lovely face, she is a little bit overweight. That is never healthy as much as people want it to be. And to say that
    she doesn’t have to live up to “those standards” anymore, is to say that now she can let herself go ?!

    Thanks for putting the whole point in only a few but powerful words.

  • Oliver

    It’s quite funny

    The table has turned

  • GagaforTyra

    She looks good to me!

  • Bootylicious

    She’s fat!!!! Puhlease. She has great muscle tone. And just because she weighs 161 lbs doesn’t mean it’s all fat. I bet she’s no bigger than a size 8.

  • I.Q.

    Finally a model who has some real business sense.

  • Domino

    Absolutely one of the best bodies in the biz and still is…

  • DrJube

    I think I’d be able to make a better judgement on how she looks if she weren’t airbrushed and photoshopped to within an inch of her life. What a joke. She says she’s proud of her body? yeah right.

  • Monica

    You people who are being negative-saying she IS fat- are out of your minds!!

  • anastaia hudgins

    tyrs fat…. what the hell….. she is gorgeous, she insipes people, and gives back to the world. Pepple need to realize GOD gave us cruves so we learn how to work the not work them off.

  • Dionedra

    You guys are retarded, you don’t even know the woman. What right do you have to say anything positive or negative about her in the first place. Does she talk about you? I think not. Grow up!!
