Would You Work For Tyra?
Now that her talk show is calling it quits, people sure have a lot to say about Tyra Banks. Most of it is not pretty by a long shot. Hear what sources are saying about the former supermodel after the jump.
Of course, many were surprised to hear that Tyra, the talk show hosted by the glamour goddess would be no more after five seasons. Now that the word is out, unflattering words about Ms. Banks have followed.
For starters, employees say that she was extremely cruel and hard to work for.
A source quoted in the New York Daily News had this to say:
“There had been a high turnover of employees for years.
She and the higher-ups on the production staff could be extremely brutal. She really is a diva.”
Beyond that, however, many are speculating that Tyra had not planned to end her show. Instead, they say that her network, The CW, canceled it because it was getting too expensive and the ratings were not high enough.
“An insider told us the show was cancelled simply because it cost too much – it never recovered financially from the move from LA to NY that Tyra insisted on, plus Tyra’s salary was huge,” wrote celebrity gossip blogger Janet Charlton.
Sources also say that Banks refused to give employees advance notice about the end of the talk show. One source says that she simply told her employees to “get their resumes together.”
That doesn’t seem like ‘model behavior’ to me.
