Tyra Banks celebrated the historic Vogue Italia Black issue with a special episode of her show. The Vogue Italia episode is scheduled to air on September 11th. The New York Post is reporting that behind the scenes the taping was delayed two hours with audience members left waiting. Some angry audience members called Tyra Banks a diva with an attitude.
"You could hear her going on and on because she was standing right behind the stage curtain," said one audience member. "She's talking and talking. Meanwhile, you have the entire audience waiting almost two hours for the taping to start." And our spy said when Banks finally did take her seat onstage, she had a bad attitude." She leaves us waiting, and everyone is sitting there complaining, and then she comes out and doesn't say a word about it. She didn't even say hello, she got right into her script," said our source. "She acted so cold towards everyone. She's a phony."
All along, "Tyra kept saying, 'When I was a model,' and would hardly let them talk," said our spy. "It was all about her, as usual." Banks then led the whole audience outside onto the street for the show's ending. "Cops had it closed off, and Tyra had bodyguards," laughed our spy. "She had the audience prance down the street and then release black balloons. Some were whining that it was so bad for the environment. "It was so disorganized, people fell over the press outside and almost trampled two little girls. Tyra was acting like it was a live sporting event instead of the most self-indulgent, narcissistic crap." Show reps did not return calls. source
Tyra brought out a bevy of models like Beverly Johnson, Chanel Iman, Selita Ebanks,Neomie Lenoir,Tameka Jacobs and Veronica Webb. The Vogue Italia issue sold out in New York City and was a success in it's first run.
