Modelland: Tyra Banks' New Novel!

Modelland: Tyra Banks' New Novel!

Tyra Banks is adding “author” to her long list of titles as she releases her first title with Bankable Books, Modelland!

The 36-year-old mogul is teaming up with Random House to release three novels based on her own experiences as a model.

The story brings a teenage girl and her friends to an imaginary place called Modelland. “Every girl in the world wants to go there because it’s where ‘Intoxibellas’ are trained,” Tyra wrote, adding, “Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too. (But I’m confirming NOTHING! Ha. You gotta wait for the book.)”

    Title of Book Should Be Called ” How to Live With a Humongous Forehead “

    YUCK, she looks like an ALIEN! Freaky. What happened to her nose? Nose job. Ugly.

  • Yes

    You know if these celebs came off genuine about their so called “dreams”, I wouldn’t say anything against it. But let’s be real, it’s all about the money. Funny how these musicians (for example) claim creating their own perfume was a “childhood dream” – ugh, whatever!

    They have enough money. Perfumes, books, hairspray…what’s next?

  • scrug

    who is the poor ghost writer? i again remember the “book” Swan” by Naomi Campbell and it’s a worse book i never read!

  • Sophie

    Great, another crap novel for young people to read by a celebrity who wants to try everything. It’s sad, our generation would rather read garbage like Twilight and this rather than some well-written novels with substance.

  • brightside

    Airbrush…much! She was good in her time but she’s a little long in the tooth now….

    So Modelland is sort of a Harry Potter meets America’s Next Top Model? Gosh, I can already see this in the clearance section already.

  • Brat

    Another outlet for her to talk about herself. Narcissistic much.

  • blackandproud

    My people did not suffer hundreds of years of slavery to be mocked by the white devils on some website. Tyra is an african queen and all you white devils need to go back to the country bar and leave black folks alone. Praise be to ALLAH.

    I don’t what other people say, i wanna read this book. It seems intresting even if does have the word model it still seems good to me. But thats just my opinion

    @Kate: I mean I don’t care what other people say

  • tten

    Is she retarded? The whole thing sounds awful! I can write something much better than that! Come on!

  • GOSH

    do you people already reallllllyy read the book???
    dont judge the book by its cover.
    so what if it’s about modeling?
    is it wrong to imagine? No.
    and it’s not narcissistic, its called proud of what she is.
    have you done anything in your life? if you havent, dont write such things like that about her.

  • Janice He

    Half of you guys are plain retarded. Why on earth would you insult someone like that? Nose job?? Big forehead?? Is that really necessary? She’s not perfect, no one is. What about you guys show a picture of yourselves and we can find those tiny little imperfections and just criticize you until we are pleased. What’s the point, really guys?

  • Weilyn

    Well, that premise sounds insanely retarded.
    I’ll probably still read it, though. You rarely find snark bait of this magnitude.

  • AshleyLyn

    If all you guys honestly believe that it is going to be so stupid and just another way to “talk about herself”, Why do you take the time to leave a comment about it. You obviously have no life that you are actually intrested in someone who does. At least Tyra is doing something with her life, rather then hating on yall’.
    Tyra your my Hero:) -

    @Janice He:

    These aren’t people who are deliberately whoring themselves out and openly voicing how awesome and perfect they are. In a world where material perfection is encouraged.

  • veronica
