Tyra Banks Tells Howard Stern That Women Should Go Commando

Tyra Banks tells Howard Stern that woman should not wear panties in order to air out their female parts.

She said it is important and then Howard went for the important question; if Tyra was wearing any undies.-DocFB

Tyra Banks and her forehead announced that they are leaving her talk show at the end of the 2010 season.  It will be her 5th and final season.

She had her highs (the whole looking thicker in a bathing suit) and her lows (the whole fat suit thing was lame) and somewhere in between, while reportedly being cheap to her employees, she found a way to make it work. 

It does come as somewhat of a surprise because with Oprah leaving, it would have left a door open of possibilities for Tyra to take her show to that next level.  Well, if she could ever get over talking bout herself to everyone.  It seems her heart is with "America's Top Model" and other projects to keep her busy.

Personally, I will not miss the show as it was never my cup of green tea.  Maury Povich had more depth than Tyra.   Maybe if she fondled Katherine McPhee's breasts move often, we would have watched.

Others may miss Tyra and if you go HERE, you will see the top 10 clips of Tyra at her, um, weirdness.  Wendy Williams future looks much brighter now.

Did you watch Tyra and will you miss her?-Dr.FB

Looks like Wendy Williams got to Tyra Banks. Tyra will be taking off her weave on the season premiere of her show.

Tyra announced:

"This season on The Tyra Show we're taking it to the next level and getting more real than ever before by encouraging women everywhere to own and rock what they've got and be proud! For the Season 5 premiere, I will be doing just that - no fake hair, I'm rocking my REAL hair. This will all be going down on September 8, 2009, which we’re declaring National Real Hair Day! We welcome everyone to go natural with me!”

God, I hope it covers up that huge forehead of hers.  So how many others will be going natural on that day?-Dr.FB

Video: The America’s Top Model Debacle

Here is footage after the cat fight of the "America's Top Model" incident. People must have been trampled like crazy.
Personally, I think someone threw a bag of McDonald's food somewhere in there and you had thousands of starving models fighting for it. Where was Tyra?-Dr.FB
