Tyra Banks adds string to her bow #593

Lay down your weapons and kneel before the might that is Tyra Banks. Not content with having one of America's biggest chat shows, and a hit reality show, Tyra is now insisting on having another career as a novelist. Some people are so greedy...

Tyra told The NY Daily News, 'It's a work of fiction that honors my love of books and fantasy, and also lets me poke fun at things I've seen in the real world. So, yes, many of the characters will be inspired by some of the models I've known - both nice and ‘ice.' And many of the people I've met along the way, from the fashion world, my TV shows, even people I've met in restaurants and on the street.'

A source said, 'Tyra has had ups and downs with a lot of people, including Janice Dickinson, Naomi Campbell and Paulina Porizkova. All of those were pretty public issues, so there's a definite chance that characters similar to those ladies could find their way into the book. Needless to say, some of those women probably won't be too happy if they get their hands on a copy.'

Ooh, it's the big three! Janice, Naomi and...Pauline?
