New York’s OOC blogger, Michael K, can turn a simple fashion accessory, into a comedy show. Such was the case, when he commented on Tyra Banks unusual fishnet mask choice she wore to French Vogues 90th Birthday Bash. Here he blows. Too funny:
“Leave it to Ty Ty Banks to take a pair of five cent fish nets from the store and wrap that mess around her head as though it was a piece of fine couture crafted from the hands of angel Coco Chanel herself. The Deadliest Catch!
No really, Ty Ty straight-up shoved her HD head into a pair of fishnets and cut the ends off. She gave herself a pat on the back for this sh*t on her Twitter:”
“So FRENCH VOGUE mask is sum cheap FISHNET stockings I got n crazy store n Paris! I cut em up n made it y’all. N did my ow hair n makeup.”
After New York Fashion Week, where Tyra lives in The Big Apple, her tweet is kinda funny.
Very early Gaga press - “I make everything myself” – was always the repetez vous standard press line given to paparazzi of outrageous costumes.

Green Energy Art, West Hollywood with a rugby football “ruck US” flavor , Thursday July 22nd 2010.
Green energy in L.A, looks like people, who are not too proud, to zip around on a moped every now and again. It’s the future of L.A and every inner city’s smart energy story of the future, and it beats waiting in darn traffic too.
Humility is always the best way forward for sustainability on the planet.
Although I don’t advocate moped transport for everything, cars are grand, for inner city errands, these things need some publicity today. Love these moped pics today in Hollywood.
~Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. 7.22.2010. For the record, Horiwood does not have a psychic, but when watching Tyra Banks pyschic friend, Robyn A. Roth perform as an actress, she makes you think psychics are darn attractive. So talented and a solid performer on stage. hey honey! xox~
Q: How does a screenwriter turn people into superheroes for the screen?
PSA from PBS: “We created this site with the hope that it would give families a time to interact together — to talk together and have some fun playing and learning together. We also designed some activities so that even preschoolers may be able to have their own independent, creative fun.”
It has to be said today, that what’s really funny… is this song list of “Mr Rogers,” sourced by Michael K from PBS.Org. Song titles are very recession relevant, for 31% of people still struggling financially to feel better about life. I think pop stars should run with these themes. Go here for a giggle.
Today, I was thinking about superheroes and why they sell so well at the movies. (more…)
According to Melissa Noble, multimedia supermodel of America, Tyra Banks has signed a three year book deal with Random House to bring Modelland to an audience.
Fox News reports the book series (and Tyra’s first foray as a novelist) “[is] for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their lives … and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too,” Banks wrote on her website describing her new book.
According to Michaek K, Modelland’s novel premise is that it’s a ”fantasy book that takes readers into a magical world where superhuman supermodels called “intoxibellas” learn to perfect their powers at an exclusive academy.”
People Magazine reports: “It’s my novel called Modelland (pronounced “Model Land”) that takes you to a fantastical place you’ve never seen, or heard about, or read about before … Where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye.
“Modelland has always been a part of my mind and my heart. I’m excited that you’ll be able to read about this magical world that’s been living in my dreams for so many years.”
Alright… the world of entertainment since Twilight Saga‘s popular success is going the route of novels, then film, then dvd, then TV. Tyra’s on the bandwagon. Smart girl. Tyra Banks as a literary fiction author… wow… who would have thought?
Alright America–taking a note from Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen‘s uber popular celebrity marriage (as well as Modelland being greenlit by Random perhaps means that… we now need a novel about footballers with super powers too… for a future cross over series. Novelist wanted for that job please.

Oprah is clocking out of TV Talk to concentrate on her OWN TV network. Winfrey also co-executive produced the film Precious which is a strong Oscar-contender this year.
Now Tyra Banks has told People that: “This will be the last season of The Tyra Show. I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years. My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are.”
Tyra will produce films that provide “positive images of women to the big screen.”
Sounds like Ms Tyra wants a more ‘normal’ life and not the constant back-to-back daily deadline driven pressures of pumping out a daily talk show. Could she be wanting children next? Sounds like it. Go girl!

Because Disney threw Kim Kardashian an advertisement on her website, America’s favorite Armenian Princess, went all out and dressed as Princess Jasmine for Halloween this year.
This girl takes belly dancing at your favorite Lebanese restaurant in Pasadena, to a whole new level, minus the raw garlic dip and red onion hotness.
Kim Kardashian must be the hottest belly dancer known to the African American community and South Africa too right now, as the reality TV star, divulges to Fox News via Show Biz Spy, that her rekindled romance with footballer Reggie Bush is going “awesome.”
Reggie Bush is one lucky man to have Princess Jasmine shake it like Lebanese-Latina diva Shakira does for the world, for him at Halloween. I don’t care what supermodel talk show girl, Tyra Banks thinks of Kim and the Kardashian sisters.
I love their Middle Eastern stinky, onion breath ways in LA. Their world wind weddings to LA Lakers stars. Their bump Kate Gosselin off the tabloid covers with a bit of Kardashian lip and hip. Their taking over Miami antics with J-Lo and their bikini bodies, pregnant or not. Darn it. Bring the Kardashians on, I say!
They are what this city is about. Camera-ready princesses, with a sexy interesting, fun twist. Go sexy Kim!
New York star Tyra Banks has fun playing with Los Angeles star Kim Kardashian for Halloween. Meow! :)
… their absence always equals presence.
I was reflecting on that this afternoon as supermodel turned talk show host, Tyra Banks, who used to wear a lot of designer’s clothes on runways, was named the Top Earner of the Year this year for women in Prime Time TV. She totally is Baby Oprah now. Girl can write her own checks, asap.

2. Katherine Heigl – $18 million
3. Marg Helgenberger – $9.5 million

[This post was one for the lovely Lady Ellegant, my favorite designer with a bun, who totally stood me up today in Beverly Hills. Does the word 'inconsequential' make one laugh out loud so hard today. Um, yep! Once a diva always a diva! Too funny! Hugo's restaurant next meet? Thank you! Much love. x]
Congrats to all the lovely ladies whose earnings show how smart they really are at the leverage game in entertainment.
You’re a supermodel and Emmy winning daytime, talk show host. You have a zillion and one things to get through each day. You have also made a career about making everything about yourself and bringing every aspect of entertainment right back to you. This is Tyra Banks self-obsessed and yet always comedic story. She’s very LA in New York. We love her.
However, Tyra managed to grant Cynthia McFadden time in her busy schedule to do an interview for ABC’s Nightline. Watch Cynthia overstep the mark (McFadden’s schtick is doing ‘thorough investigative reporting’). So Cynthia had to go there. She asked Tyra about Janice Dickinson and Paulina Porizkova and how they slid down the walls after being Tyra slapped from Bankable Productions’ America’s Next Top Model Show. Tyra ‘downsized’ ANTM citing the recession firing Porizkova on her birthday with a phonecall. Um…. so Tyra was not impressed to explain her supermodel catlike ways. Watch this clip for her reaction.
Priceless! Nice job ladies.
Ed Westwicke and Taylor Momsen both scrub up well for Gossip Girl. It’s hard to believe Taylor Momsen is only 16, but she is.
Talk show queen, Tyra Banks also appears in this episode of the American tween show. This ep should be a good one. Splash News
Doug Pitt, the brother of actor Brad Pitt, has just announced that the Brad Pitt family, Doug and his wife Lisa and Rob and Julie Neal (nee Pitt) have made a $1 million donation to St. John’s in Springfield, Missouri!
A “new 31 pediatric unit, a 10-bedroom hospital-based Ronald McDonald House; and double the size the neonatal intensive and pediatric intensive care units,” will be funded from the donation, that also aids cancer research.
In honor of their mother, the medical center is being renamed. It will be called the St. John’s Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center. Celebrities who give and who honor their parents are THE BEST! Let’s all do the same.
On Horiwood.Com here in Hollywood… here’s 10 hot entertainment posts right now. Happy Weekend. Give lots, smile lots and be all you can be in the world. :)
Miley Cyrus’ mom Tish Cyrus produces her daughter Miley Cyrus in the film, The Last Song in Georgia.
Miley is lock down. She’s hating it. You know it! She’s even doing Tyra Banks impersonations, she’s so bored!
Poor Justin Gatson. Just kidding. Hey Smilers! :)
Meanwhile, Billy Ray Cyrus has announced that Hannah Montana TV series 4 will be the shows last season. Miley is becoming a film star! On a positive note, she can always do Hannah Montana films, if Disney still want to still churn more milk out of The Hannah Montana franchise. You just KNOW they will!
