Tyra Banks has been the talk of the internet since last night’s Dancing With The Stars premiere.
In case you were not aware, the supermodel, actress, and television personality was tapped to host the latest season of the hit competition series — and if Tyra fans know anything about the hardworking woman, it’s that she takes each and every gig very seriously. So, it was no surprise when she strutted out in a bright red ball gown, runway style… or when she yelled “I am finally here… Look momma I’m in the ballroom!” into the camera, for that matter. Fans of the show immediately accused her of making it all about her… if you missed that, click here to see it all go down for yourself.
That said, Tyra has always been beautiful and talented with an amazing spirit, and we would be remiss if we didn’t take this opportunity to highlight that fact.
She also recently spoke on the importance of being the first Black woman to host the show and is read to break barrriers.
“It’s nice to be first so you can open that door and let so many people in after you. I like breaking these doors down so that we don’t have any more firsts, but it’s nice to be first so that you can open that door and let so many people in after you,” Banks told Good Morning America.
