    Default Tyra Banks is Infuriated: Rejected for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

    Too old to be an Angel? Tyra Banks is ‘furious’ after being REJECTED for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show guest appearance

    • Ms Banks, 40, was one of the lingerie giant's original Angels for eight years
    • The supermodel mogul is said to be 'outraged' by the decision

    She's the queen of delivering rejection as a judge on her long-running show, America's Next Top Model, and now it looks like Tyra Banks has got a taste of her own medicine.

    According to RadarOnline.com, the 40-year-old runway pro was snubbed by Victoria's Secret when she suggested she make a 'surprise' appearance in last December's annual CBS televised show.

    '[Ms Banks] was rejected by the brand and the network, despite her long affiliation with the company,' the undisclosed source said. 'She’s outraged and is threatening to never to work with Victoria’s Secret again.'


    Snubbed: Tyra Banks, 40, allegedly attempted to make a 'surprise' appearance at December's televised Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but was rejected despite her long affiliation with the company

    The reasons behind her alleged rejection? She's old news, apparently.

    'Tyra’s feelings were hurt because the excuse she was given is that the audience likes to see the newest models, not the "veterans" on the runway during the VS TV show,' the source explained.

    Ms Banks, who enjoyed a lucrative career as one of the lingerie giant's original Angels for eight years between 1997 and 2005, was said to have been 'dying' to make a comeback.

    The sassy star made fashion history as the first African-American woman to feature both on GQ and Sports Illustrated covers.

    Since then, the supermodel mogul has been running and co-hosting her wildly successful America's Next Top Model show, and will be working on its 21st cycle this summer.

    She also announced earlier this year that was would be appearing in a sequel to Disney's cult hit, Life-Size, due out next year.


    Newer models: Victoria's Secret apparently felt their audience were more interested in its 'newest models' (as seen in this cast shot from the show Tyra wanted to walk) rather than its 'veterans'

    But as for those angel wings, it appears she won't be dusting them off and re-attaching them any time soon.

    The December show, in which she reportedly wanted to appear, pulled in almost ten million viewers and showcased long-time Angels Adriana Lima, for her 14th year running, and Alessandra Ambroiso for her 13th year, as well as fledgling Angels Lily Aldridge, Toni Garrn and Behati Prinsloo.

    'Tyra doesn’t want to make a public spectacle out of the snub, because it would make all the parties involved look bad, the source concluded. 'But she isn’t happy.'

    I didn't read it all, in fact just a few sentences. Of course she has to reject people from her show. It's a competition. It would be great to have her at the show. I stopped watching the Victoria's Secret fashion show years ago. I do not like their clothing anymore either. It's played out, and the quality sucks now.

    Hilarious that they tell her they don't want to work with her and her cutting rejoinder is to threaten to never work with them again.

    You gotta think through your comebacks better, Tyra.

    That show is still on the air?
    I watched the first couple of seasons, which seemed somewhat legitimate (teaching the women about the industry, and photo shoots that made sense). But now? It's like the MTV Real World with non-sensical photo shoots.
    I catch reruns once in a while only to watch Mike Rosenthal shoot.... Talented and Gorgeous. Yes please.

    Um, please tell me that Lindsay Lohan will be reprising her role. That would make my year. That would be a fantastic train wreck to watch.
    Tyra was absolutely awful in the first movie...

    And the fact that she has the world's largest collection of granny panties also deepens the mystery.....

    I don't think Tyra is fat by any means, but she is not a lingerie model anymore. I don't really find Adriana Lima or Alessandra Ambrosio attractive, but I think their careers have lasted longer because their bodies have stayed relatively the same size. Tyra's hasn't. Even in pictures from her last show in 2005, there was a noticeable discrepancy between she and the other models. Nearly a decade later, she would stick out like a sore thumb alongside those girls. The sad fact is that VS has an image and she just doesn't fit it anymore. Them's the breaks, Tyra.

    It's amazing looking how different the models were from when VS started, and now the VS models are so much thinner with fake boobs.

    I was thinking the same thing. I loved when Jill Goodacre was in there. I thought she had what would be considered normal to desirable proportions. Because, quite frankly, if you are going to buy lingerie for someone like your wife or gf, it would be helpful to see how the lingerie looks on someone who isn't some kind of hyper-extruded freak.

    In reality VS does not make bras that fit women with large breasts. They also have no idea how to properly fig and measure us. They told my older DD that she would need a 34DD. Never! She wears a 28KK. We get our bras from overseas.

    I've said this before, but I never got why Tyra was a model in the first place. She is very attractive, I'll say that, but nothing about her says fashion to me. Nothing that says "I'm a model", save for her entitled attitude.

    And I'm wondering about her self-esteem if she makes such a big stink about this - I mean, they are just bras and panties....
