Tyra Banks Is Hard to Work For, Sky Is Blue

Breaking news: Tyra Banks is hard to work for. You’re as shocked as we are, aren’t you? Turns out the Smizing Queen can be a bit of a diva on set according to reports in the Daily News. As word got out that she was shutting down production of her show, disgruntled staffers started letting it all out. Apparently, TyTy told the press about her plans before alerting employees. That’s just mean — it’s the holidays, Tyra. Of course, when the show first moved from L.A. to New York, they weren’t immediately notified, either, so the staff wasn’t surprised. But still, they’re not exactly happy campers.

“There had been high turnover of employees for years,” a past crew member says, insisting that many people quit after just a few months because it was “pretty difficult to work for Tyra.”

But not everyone loathed working for Ms. Banks. “Honestly, I don’t know how it would be to work under her,” one higher-ranking employee told the paper. “But for me, it was a good experience. Tyra just knows how she likes things done. And as for her ‘diva-ness,’ well, it sells.” There’s one glaring omission in this story, however, and it’s not the “tk” for Tyra’s age that the writer ran: Did no one talk to her weave person? We need to know how disgruntled he or she is. After all, Tyra cut her weave off — we need the backstory! If you’re reading this, you know who to call.
