March 29, 2000 - More feedback
on Tyra's Oscar dress as The New York Post's Richard Johnson said people
at the Oscars were complaining about Tyra's interview style and worried
about stepping on her dress as she was interviewing people. People at the
Oscars seemed to think Tyra was overeager and jubilant.
26, 2000 - Tyra Banks did the Oscar warm up show and interviewed Angelina
Jolie as well as Salma Hayek, though Mr. Blackwell didn't think much of
her outfit, and to be honest neither did we. Quoting the legend "A lavender
tulle and satin strapless gown that must have been borrowed from the Gone
with the Wind archives. And this one should've been gone, too. Sorry,
Tyra. Better luck next time." We've also included a dressed down Tyra look
for the rehearsals of the event.

March 14, 2000 - Anybody
notice Tyra Banks in some of the new WNBA commercials with Teresa Witherspoon?

World of Disney original Life-Size got 13.5 million viewers this weekend,
not bad for the aspiring actress eh?
March 7, 2000 - Tyra not
only was in the movie Life Size this weekend, but also made an appearance
on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last Thursday. Unfortunately I was unable
to catch either event, but reviews of the performance were mixed, as Variety
reports "Tyra Banks definitely has what it takes to play a living doll,
but the lesson she teaches our poor isolated girl is certainly questionable.
Under her influence, Casey learns to pay more attention to her girlie side,
and opts to hang out with the airheads at the mall. Not exactly the kind
of message parents may want their daughters to take to heart." But at least
they do say there are charming moments in the film.

Walter Scott about her appearance on Oprah in which she admitted a man

a relationship are false.
