Tyra Banks Not Leaving ANTM, Recognizes Fierceness In Others

Remember when we were freaking out, lying prostrate on a chaise with smelling salts at our nostrils because we thought that Tyra Banks was planning on leaving her reality phenomenon, America’s Next Top Model? Well, even though we were barely conscious from the shock, we do. However, as it turns out, any rumors that a rift between Tyra and her orange co-host, Jay Manuel, was causing Tyra’s departure are not real and so there’s no cause for alarm.

Tyra’s rep has reportedly told Us Weekly, “The rumors about Tyra leaving and the fight with Jay are NOT TRUE!” And of course, we can only react by saying, “Fierce!” In case you have no idea what I’m talking about and why “fierce” is the most appropriate reaction to this news, you need to start reading J. Harvey’s recaps of the show. And you thought there were only three ANTM J.’s.

Also, here’s Tyra holding up a statuette from the Fiercee Awards, which she hosted at Chelsea Studios. Oh you heard you me correctly. Ty-Ty has finally realized that there’s not an award that currently exists to validate exactly what it is she does–and so she invented one herself. Sheeeet, who needs an Emmy, when you can have a mudflap lady on a stand?

Meanwhile, is Jaslene Gonzalez auditioning for a remake of Purple Rain? If so, let’s hope it’s a silent film, bless her heart and that heavy tongue of hers.
