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.)”

Tyra Banks: This Year's ANTM Word is 'Dreckitude'!

Tyra Banks cuddles up to new America’s Next Top Model judge and Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley at NYC’s SL Lounge on Tuesday (February 23).

The 36-year-old model and talk show host was joined by fellow ANTM personalities Jay Manuel, Nigel Barker and wife Crissy and past cycle winners Yoanna House and McKey Sullivan to celebrate the show’s 14th cycle, debuting March 10 at 8/7c on the CW.

Andre told JustJared.com that Tyra brought up the idea of joining the judging panel over lunch but that he hadn’t watched the show! “I never saw America’s Next Top Model!” he shared. “I had seen Tyra‘s talk show, but I never saw a whole segment.”

As for the new buzzword to expect this season, it’s “dreckitude” – it means terrible and a total mess!
