"Why yes ... yes, I do." -- Janice Dickinson
Just when the world has recovered from the Jennifer Love Hewitt butt-flab brouhaha, a new weight-related question has been tossed into the zeitgeist: Is Tyra Banks fat? During an appearance on Today on Monday, Janice Dickinson told Al Roker that Hewitt “is a healthy, not emaciated woman,” but then added: “You want to see someone who’s fat? I’m sorry, Tyra. Tyra Banks is fat.” Like a knight in a shining raincoat, Roker leaped to Banks’s defense, and Dickinson backtracked. “I’m kidding, because I love Ms. Banks,” she said. Regardless, much like a baseball player named in connection a steroid scandal, Banks’s name has now been dragged through the fat-mud, meaning a chubby little asterisk will accompany the Top Model host wherever she goes in life. Is she fat? Is she skinny? We may never know the truth.
