For many career women, it’s often a struggle to balance family life with their career goals.
Unlike our male counterparts, success for women isn’t only measured by our business acumen, but also by who and when we marry and/or have kids.
For supermodel Tyra Banks, the sting of that double standard has weighed heavy on her heart in ways her fans had never known until she opened up about her fertility issues recently.
In a clip from an upcoming episode of ‘FABLife,’ Banks and co-host Crissy Teigen speak candidly about the societal pressures to marry and conceive. Banks even got an bit emotional when speaking of the topic, stating:
“I just feel like we’re so hard on each other and so judgmental of each other and a woman that is divorced three times is more normal than a woman that has not been married.
I am so tired of seeing on my social media, ‘Why don’t you have kids? Why don’t you have kids?’ You don’t know. You don’t know what I’m going through,” Banks said as the tears began to flow.
Isn’t it sad how it’s more acceptable in today’s society to be a ‘baby mama’ than to be a woman over 40 with no kids?? *sigh*
Tyra Banks has been sued for $3 million by the mother of a teen sex addict who appeared on her show.
According to the AJC, angry mother Beverly McClendon (of McDonough, Georgia), said her daughter answered an open call placed on Banks’ website last October. The show’s producers contacted the girl and invited her to appear as a guest. A month later, the teen allegedly flew unaccompanied to New York, where she was put up in a hotel in advance of her paid appearance on “Tyra,” which ceased production in May.
McClendon said she had no idea about her daughter’s television debut until it was too late.
In the suit, filed in federal court Oct. 8, McClendon frets that the episode “was undoubtedly watched by sexual deviants, perverts and pedophiles alike,” and violated her daughter’s privacy.
She’s seeking $3 million in damages from Banks, her producers and Warner Bros. Entertainment. McClendon’s complaint also asserts that the teen’s right to privacy was violated, therefore she’s seeking an injunction against any future airings of the program, which still appears in repeats on the CW network.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson hit up The Tyra Banks show recently to promote “Before I Self Destruct.” On show, which aired yesterday (Dec 1st), 50 allowed Tyra to *cough* feel him up. After speaking about baring his butt in his full-length film that’s included with his CD, an intrigued Tyra patted down his backside, as she grabbed his butt she got way more than she bargained for! A hand full of cash!
“I’ve never in my life seen anybody with that much money in their back pocket,” Tyra tells him.
“I like to have cash on me because it feels like I have money,” 50 replied.
50 also discussed how he made amends with his ex-boo Vivica Foxx, “I called her and I said, ‘You got to stop fighting me and be in my video.'” They have since made amends and she even agreed to appear in his new video, “The song is about when relationships don’t work, and when I explained it to her it kind of intensified what the song was about.”
During the interview, 50 flirted with Tyra quite a bit and even said he was there to take her away. Very interesting…
