'America’s Next Top Model': Tyra Banks loses weight, wins bet with staff


Tyra Banks is shedding more than her fake hair these days, she’s also shedding pounds.

This week on CNN's "Larry King Live," the "America's Next Top Model" host and exec producer described how she created a weight loss challenge with a group of friends, including "ANTM" staffers.

"We were sitting around a table and kind of trash talking,” Banks said. "And decided to do this challenge because we all love food. I trash talked so much where I had to win – and I did."

Banks' appearance since she quit modeling full time has been scrutinized in the media. Two years ago, she fought back in the pages of People after tabloids printed unflattering pictures of her in a bathing suit. She told King that she didn’t quite see her weight gain then. "When I told the world to kiss my fat ass, I didn't look at myself, even on television, and think that I was too big or, I don't know, it didn't connect."

Even slimmed down, Banks told King that it's not her body she has the problem with. "I always feel great when I don't have clothes on. But sometimes certain clothes, when I put them on and they don't fit the way that I would like them to, that's when I tend to get self-conscious."

America's New It Couple Kiss and Tell on Larry King Live


Unless you've been squatting in a partially-developed Williamsburg condo building, surely you've heard the news of the torrid Levi Johnston/Kathy Griffin affair currently taking the nation by storm. Tonight, Kathy and Levi dished on their hot Teen Choice Awards date.

Frankly, this may have been the most entertaining segment on Larry King Live since the fossilized lizard himself gave Marlon Brando a handjob on the air. Between Griffin's steady barrage of sexual innuendo, thinly veiled references to post-date Levi-banging, combined with Levi's seemingly endless "aw shucks" blushes and sheepish grins, this was fun television from beginning to end. Long live Kathy and Levi. May the white-hot flame of their love never be extinguished.
