Tyra Banks has to testify against stalker



Speaking of stalkers, Tyra Banks is due in a Manhattan court this week to testify against Georgia man Brady Green, who is accused of following her from one side of the country to another, the AP says. He was arrested in a McDonald's near the Manhattan building where The Tyra Banks Show is taped after he tried to see her on March 18, 2008.

Tbd-tyrabanks042809 Green told police then, "I know her. She knows me. We're good friends." He said he "came by bus (from Los Angeles) to see her." Green, 38, has pleaded not guilty to stalking, harassment and criminal trespass. He faces up to 90 days in jail if convicted by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke, who is hearing the case without a jury.

Green has rejected several non-jail plea deals offered by the prosecution. If he had accepted the plea offers, Banks' testimony would not have been necessary and he would not have seen her in court. He may have wanted to cut a deal, since court papers quote him saying: "We had a thing together. I sent her flowers. I sent her cards. Should I plead no contest? I've got satellites watching me and recording us."
