    Default Tyra Banks: where is the love?

    Her career's on a roll, but some of Tyra Banks's early ambitions have been shoved aside such as having a baby.

    "After the talk show started, and I had Top Model at the same time, it engulfed me so much that it dulled my maternal instinct," the star of both The Tyra Banks Show and America's Next Top Model Banks, 34, tells Essence" magazine for its February issue.

    Not that the first African-American woman to grace the covers of GQ, Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue and the Victoria's Secret catalogue has completely abandoned hope of raising a family. "I hope that when I get more of a handle on my life it comes back," she says of the maternal instinct.

    Although Banks, who is developing shows for Warner Bros. and one with Ashton Kutcher, is not complaining, she does says, "I'd go to work and women would be crying in my arms on the talk show. But then I'd go home and put my key in my door and ... nothing: no friends, no husband, no children. I feel so full when I'm at work but so empty when I come home."

    Though Banks won't open up about it, Essence reports the buzz that she's involved with investment banker John Utendahl, 50 and that's why she moved production of her shows to New York from Los Angeles.

    Responds Banks huffily: "I'm very insulted by that rumor. I employ a lot of people; their livelihoods rest on my shows. The move to New York was a decision I made with my manager. It was not about a man."

    Aw. That is sad.
    I still think she is a looney tune though.

    No, it was about a RICH man.

    ok I do kind of feel bad for her since she seems so lonely, but she's still extremely annoying. I'm not surprised she doesn't have a husband or kids though (if that's what she wants and has tried to get)- she makes everything about her all the time, what guy would put up with her?

    I saw an episode of Tyra (it was about how to spot a fake -- ironic much??) and wanted to feel sorry for her because she had the most G I G A N T I C pimple right smack dab in the middle of her face, yet I couldn't because she was just so annoying and pushy. She absolutely would not let any of her guests talk without interrupting them and forcing herself into the shot to do something "funny." I honestly think she's on some drugs (maybe speed in an attempt to drop weight???) because she was so manic, frazzled, and obnoxious.

    Perhaps she should make some (or more or better) friends.

    I have only seen seconds of her show. It is so uncomfortable to watch her. She's so clearly self conscious and it's so clear her audience sees it.

    I kind of like her... that episode about confronting fears (dolphins... BIRDS) left an indelible mark on my brain.

    No wonder she feels that way, she too busy with her "career". If she took time out to concentrate on the good things in life she wouldn't feel as empty as she does...it doesn't take a genius to figure that out.

    That's NO reason to have a kid. Get a pet then!

    The fact that she feels so empty when she goes home should tell her something; she needs to sit down and stop doing so much.
