Banks Shot: Tyra Hits Back at Tabloids

by at . Comments

This just in: Tyra Banks is not fat.

And she's got the killer body - not to mention a life-size, blown-up picture of herself from a tabloid for comparison - to prove it.

Wearing the same swimsuit seen in the tabloids, the America's Next Top Model host shows off her real figure next to a blown-up version of the infamous photo of herself that ran last month, sparking rumors that the supermodel had let herself go.

And we mean really let herself go. We're talking Anna Nicole Smith style.

Seriously, look at those hips! She's no CariDee English, that's for sure.

During a taping of her talk show, which airs today, Banks took the unusual step of wearing the same suit seen in the unflattering picture to prove a point. Which was that the paparazzi waited around for an unflattering pic to make her look fat.

"It was such a strange meanness and rejoicing that people had when thinking that was what my body looked like," Banks told People.

Luckily, Tyra call pull this off. Please don't let us see Janice Dickinson in the Enquirer and have her attempt the same thing to clear her name.
