I often forget I'm publicly known...I'm deeply ingrained in biz world. But at biz lunch meetings people request autograph & then I remember— Tyra Banks (@tyrabanks) February 16, 2015
After years of modeling, 21 seasons of America's Next Top Model (with spinoffs in virtually every continent), a talk show, and bestowing the gift of the smize to non-model peons, Tyra Banks often forgets that she is "publicly known." Thank goodness for autograph-hungry fans that pester her at restaurants. Someone has to remind Tyra of her roots.
