Episode Summary

Tyra's PEOPLE Magazine Cover Update
As you know by now, Tyra became the latest celebrity to receive criticism from the tabloids about her body. Undaunted by the nasty comments and name calling, Tyra confronted her critics with a cover story for People magazine a few weeks ago. She talked about how she was not ashamed of her admittedly larger body and even devoted an entire show to the subject of weight and body image. What you might not be aware of is the impact Tyra’s cover story had on women around the world. From The View to Larry King Live she was the talk of the town. As if her pride, honesty and determination were not enough to challenge the haters, she also received countless letters of encouragement from fans and other celebs. People in various areas of the entertainment biz spoke in support of Tyra’s candor and ultra femme shape. Janet Jackson, Rebecca Romijn and Elizabeth Hurley were just a few famous names that heralded Tyra as a heroine. If you thought that Tyra was going to end it there, she had just one last statement to make: she announced she wanted to start a movement encouraging women to embrace their bodies and stop obsessing about those silly numbers that made up our weight.moreless
