A $200,000 Gay Wedding on 'Tyra'It's a big gay wedding on 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated). A really big gay wedding. Like, two hundred thousand dollars worth of gay wedding.

Tyra has teamed up with a group of wedding vendors in order to give one couple the ceremony of their dreams. But to make it to the altar, the group of contestants will have to win at 'The Gaylywed Game.' Tyra asks questions such as "Which celebrity couple would your partner say you are most like? Is it Ellen and Portia ... or Elton John and David Furnish?"

The couples have to predict each other's answers correctly, in a parody of 'The Newlywed Game.' And there's a big payday awaiting one of them.

Ribs and Warts on 'Tyra'On 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Tyra Banks welcomes one of her biggest fans -- a man who is so overcome with love for Tyra that he giggles hysterically whenever he's near her.

The fan -- who is named Jack -- presents Tyra with an odd gift that involves ribs, warts and hair weaves. In return, Tyra lets him feel the remnant of a wart on her hand. Confused? Don't worry about it. It's yet another uniquely "Tyra-esque" moment that can only be fully appreciated in the context of the video clip. Oh, Tyra, once your show goes off the air, we will miss you and your zaniness.

A Potential Teen Mother on 'Tyra'It's the final "Teen Talk" on 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Throughout the past five seasons of her show, Tyra has made an effort to reach out to teenagers. This is her last chance to talk to the teens, and on the latest show, she speaks to a young girl who desperately wants to have a baby.

Tyra meets with a young lady who wants to become pregnant. She wants to become pregnant so badly that she's already purchased a clothes, a blanket ... even a bassinet.

As the host, Tyra tries to convince the young woman that being obsessed with getting pregnant is a really bad idea -- after all, she still has her whole life ahead of her, including college and a career. But will her guest listen?

Tyra Explains Why Her T-Shirt Doesn't Have a Penis on It (VIDEO)

Tyra Explains Why Her T-Shirt Doesn't Have a Penis on ItWell, 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated) has reached its final season, and is winding down to its inevitable conclusion. We will all miss Tyra's unique brand of zaniness. On the most recent show, she provides us with a great Tyra-esque moment, by wearing a T-shirt with a picture of a penis on it. Or so one would think.

Tyra quickly clarifies that her shirt does not have a picture of a penis or a vibrator on it (although that's exactly what it looks like). Instead, the shirt has the logo for her new foundation -- an organization called BIO, which stands for "Beauty Inside and Out." Unfortunately, the logo looks a bit ... suggestive.

But no! It's not a penis ... or a vibrator. Get your mind out of the gutter. Tyra explains that the picture is of "a lipstick with, like, roots [coming out of it]." Okay. And Tyra gives free copies of the T-shirt to all her audience members as well. So that we get to see hundreds of women wearing an image of -- well, what whatever you want to think it is. It's up to you to interpret it for yourself.

Sleeping With a Momma's Boy on 'Tyra'This is the last season of 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated). And now, we have the very last installment of "The Advice Squad" -- which is where Tyra Banks gathers various wacky advice-givers and has them help out members of the audience. Today, a woman from the audience has an odd question for the panel. Her boyfriend is a total "momma's boy" who is clingy and calls his mom on the phone constantly. What should she do about this?

The answer given to the question is equally odd. A member of the panel tells the woman that she should hold down her boyfriend while having sex and say, "Can your momma do this?" Um ... interesting advice! Of course, there's always the horrifying possibility that her boyfriend will say "Yes" in reply.

Having Sex With Short Guys on 'The Tyra Show'On 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Ms. Tyra Banks takes on the complicated topic of short men who date tall women. Tyra herself is a former model who is nearly six feet tall. So how does she feel about shorter guys?

She reveals that the shortest dude she ever went out with was five feet, seven inches tall -- and that it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. "It was only strange when we were kissing standing up," she says. "But when we were laying down ... it was just fine."

Internet 'Haters' on 'Tyra'On 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated), the guests are a panel of Internet commentators who are frequently mean to celebrities. Tyra Banks has them on the show and takes them to task for their rudeness. One of the women in the panel admits to criticizing the appearance of famous men and women -- so Tyra asks the women if she's looking as good as she could be.

Tyra suggests that the woman get a makeover -- but the response from the audience is a little too enthusiastic. So Tyra then backpedals and tries to explain that she wasn't being mean, and that makeovers are a common occurrence on her program. Still, it's a slightly awkward moment for her and the audience.

Plus-Sized Women on 'The Tyra Show' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted May 13th 2010 9:50PM
Plus-Sized Women on 'The Tyra Show'2010 has been declared the year of the plus-sized women. In order to honor that, Tyra Banks had a symposium of curvaceous women as guests on 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Tyra also had a panel of comedians in attendance to answer the guests' questions.

One woman came up to the podium and declared that her hairdresser had recently asked what her "due date" was. Her hairdresser thought that she was pregnant, but as the woman says, "I'm not pregnant, I'm just fat. I didn't know what to do, so I lied; I told her my due date was March."

The comedians on the show offered additional helpful advice, saying that the woman hadn't taken the situation far enough. They recommended that next time, the woman go even further with the fake pregnancy scam. Then they suggested that she force the person in question to rub her belly, then announce that she won't be giving birth for 18 years, until it's time for the kid to go to college. Good stuff.

Sugar Babies on 'Tyra'On 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Tyra Banks meets with some self-proclaimed "sugar babies." These are women who provide "companionship" (that means sex) for wealthy older men, in exchange for gifts and money.

Tyra has a long talk with a sugar baby named Judy. She presents a hypothetical to Judy. Here's the question that Judy has to answer: Would she prefer a "super-duper rich guy" with his own private jets, but the rich guy doesn't actually seem to like her that much? Or would she prefer a normal man who actually cares about her, but the normal man only makes $75,000 a year?

Judy earnestly purses her lips, considering this question. This is her answer: "I would definitely [choose the rich guy] -- the private plane -- all that. ... Oh, in a heartbeat." Right. Interesting answer, Judy! You get points for honesty, if nothing else.

On 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated), host Tyra Banks has a slight belching incident. She burps mid-sentence while talking to a guest! Rather than trying to hide the burp, she starts discussing it.

10 TV Talk Shows We Wish Hadn't Bit the Dust

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Jan 23rd 2010 10:00AM
And another one bites the dust.

Tyra Banks had long been contemplating ways to forge an Oprah-style media empire well before the debut of her eponymous talk show in 2005. Setting aside her guest shots on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' in the 1990s, Banks decided to establish her TV-Q as a host by successfully launching 'America's Next Top Model' in 2003. That gave her the clout to fashion 'The Tyra Banks Show' -- which she segued to just three months after leaving the runway -- into something that was part tabloid, part tasteful.

Now that Banks has announced she's ending her talk show this season -- she'll be focusing on her production company, Bankable Studios, among other projects -- we formally add 'The Tyra Banks Show' to the pantheon of great talk shows we wish hadn't bit the dust.

Apparently, Tyra's show has just been one giant bowl of crazy

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 5th 2010 9:00AM
I haven't been a regular watcher of Tyra Banks' syndicated gab-fest for obvious reasons (I have male genitalia and eyes).

But judging by this list of the show's most clinically insane moments in the wake of its pending cancellation, I'm really really glad I wasn't, especially if my gene pool decided to turn my outie into an innie.

Here's my favorite of the bunch: Tyra going into a crazy spiral over Vasoline ... or judging from her reaction and my occasional run-in with the neighborhood junkie, it could have more to do with mescaline.
