Tyra Banks at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards in Universal City (8/7)

I've heard some bullshit spin before, but this is just ridiculous. "I'm expanding the definition of beauty" is just code for "I love cheeseburgers but don't like exercise." Tyra Banks told Life & Style that she's actually happy that she's getting fat:
"I'm proud of my curves and my butt and my bust and my thicker thighs. I didn't like myself that small [after I lost weight in 2006], so I gained back some weight," she tells Life & Style.

Now she stays active without obsessing and eats what she wants in moderation. In her new book, Modelland, out Sept. 13, Tyra says, "The message is really about expanding the definition of beauty."
This sounds exactly like the last time Tyra put on some weight. She went on and on about how "proud of her curves" she was and how she liked the extra pounds. Then a few months later she reappeared on her show all skinny again saying how unhealthy that extra weight had been. Which is it Tyra? You can't have your cake and eat it too -- that's what got you in this predicament in the first place. Mmmm, having cake and eating it, too . . .
