NEW YORK — In the wake of pop star Rihanna’s alleged beating by singer boyfriend Chris Brown, Tyra Banks is devoting an episode of her talk show to the issue of teen dating abuse. In the segment airing today on “The Tyra Banks Show,” the super model shares her experience dating a man who emotionally abused her.
Banks says the man chipped away at her, trying to break her down so he could be in control.
She also appeared as a guest in the animated talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast in an episode entitled "Chinatown." Tyra Banks started her own production company, Bankable Productions (previously named, "Ty Ty Baby Productions"; she did not rename it until the second cycle of America's Next Top Model), which produced The Tyra Banks Show, America's Next Top Model and the 2008 movie The Clique.
She walked the runways for Chanel, Valentino, Fendi and others.
In addition, she hosted The Tyra Banks Show, a daytime talk show aimed at younger women, which premiered on September 12, 2005, and ran until May 28, 2010.
In 2008, Banks won the Daytime Emmy Award for her work and production on The Tyra Banks Show, and won for the second time in a row for outstanding, informative talk show in 2009.
When Banks was 15 years old, she started modeling while attending school in Los Angeles.
She was rejected by six modeling agencies before she was signed by L. Models and then switched to Elite Model Management at age 16.
