Tyra Banks, host of her own talk show and former supermodel, is, yes, at it again. The noted “mastermind of gimmicks” (who among you watched that episode of her own show wherein she had her breasts examined on live TV just to prove to everyone that her breasts were real? And oh, what about that episode wherein she donned a fat suit and pretended to be an obese lady just to see how “fat girls” undergo scrutiny, insults and difficulties in dating games?) is reportedly set to dress up as Michelle Obama for Harper Bazaar’s September cover.
Michelle Obama is, of course, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
“It’s a full makeover. You know how Tyra likes to do that stuff. And she’ll get a lot of press off it.”
An insider told New York Post’s Page Six
As expected, a rep for the supermodel and host of “America’s Next Top Model” didn’t return calls.
Personally, I think this is a strange albeit interesting move on Tyra’s part. People will talk about it for sure. However, I’m not too sure if this will be a good thing for Obama’s presidential campaign. Ah well, publicity, whether good or bad, is still publicity. So on second thought, who cares if Tyra dresses up as Michelle? It will gain attention to the Obama campaign and that’s what matters!
