Tyra Banks tells a not-so-Victorian secret

Supermodel Tyra Banks to exit stage right on Victoria's Secret soon. "Say it ain't so," Tyra Banks fans everywhere are crying. Guess we won't be seeing this "bankable" supermodel strike any poses quite like this catty one of Grace Jones's (see sidebar, behind bars). Tyra's saying night-night to her lucrative deal as a secret sex kitten.

Tyra Banks naturally stole the show in Coyote Ugly, proving she's quite the actress, too. Click here for the DVD and reviewes.

Here's Tyra's big scoop, according to EURweb:

TYRA TO WORK HER LAST VICTORIA'S SECRET CATWALK: Supermodel's runway swansong airs Dec. 6 on CBS.

"With two television shows to host and executive produce, who has time to sell underwear anymore? Tyra Banks, the supermodel who became the first African-American woman to model for Victoria's Secret, will participate in her last fashion show for the lingerie company in a special that airs Dec. 6 on CBS.

Banks has found ratings success as an executive producer and host of the reality show "America's Next Top Model" and "The Tyra Banks Show," her daytime chat program that is giving Martha Stewart's morning show a run for its money.
The softer side of Tyra still always shows plenty of the attitude America loves in its top models. Last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was canceled by CBS in the wake of the FCC's crackdown on indecency following Janet Jackson's Super Bowl incident. This year's show will feature a holiday theme with red carpet interviews and musical performances, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the world's biggest lingerie display."
Never mind, Tyra, about those messy Jackson scandals. You've more than made up for that lost opportunity: You seem to have America's Next Top TV Personality written in your life's book, a la Oprah Winfrey.

Proving she's a helluva lot more than beautiful skin-deep, Tyra Banks authored this beauty guide for girl and does a fine job of talking self-esteem in ways that people of any age need to read.
