Tyra

The Last Episode of 'The Tyra Show' (VIDEO)

The Last Episode of 'The Tyra Show'Well, that's the end. This is the last episode of 'The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated). We've had some highs, some lows, a lot of uses of the word "fierce," and a lot of clips that ended up being parodied on 'The Soup.' On her last episode, Tyra cries, thanks her audience -- and kisses the floor.

During her farewell monologue, Tyra talks about how her critics predicted that the show would be canceled within two weeks. She also lists all her accomplishments as a model, photographer, and host of 'that little model show' ('America's Next Top Model'). After doing some crying, she thanks her audience for "what guys you have allowed me to be." Tyra then says this: "I am humble." Then, she kisses the floor of her studio.

Right. We're not sure if gushing about your own achievements, weeping about your own show, and attacking your critics counts as being "humble." But it did at least provide us with another uniquely "Tyra-esque" moment for the ages. And thank you, Tyra. We will miss you and your zaniness.

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.

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)

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.

A Man Uses Breast Pumps on 'Tyra''The Tyra Show' (weekdays, syndicated) has had its share of unusual topics. But today's show may top them all. Tyra Banks talks to a man who is using a breast pump on himself. He's trying to train himself to lactate so that he can breast-feed his baby -- and Tyra asks him to demonstrate.

So the man places a breast pump on his chest and, uh, goes about his business. Once the pumps are over his nipples, the guest says this: "[We] think that this is so strange, [but that's because] we never see it." Indeed. Seeing this type of thing is pretty rare.

He then reveals that his nipples have been enlarged from all the pumping, while Tyra eagerly peers at his chest. It really has to be seen to be believed.

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.

Burning Down the House on 'America's Next Top Model' (VIDEO)

Burning Down the House on 'America's Next Top Model'How hard is it to make tacos? Apparently, if you're a contestant on 'America's Next Top Model' (Wed., 8PM ET on The CW), it's fairly hard. Model Jessica tries to make a meal, but while preparing some tacos, she sets them on top of a toaster to cook. This inevitably leads to a fire. We are then presented with the spectacle of a bunch of models trying to put out the fire.

After throwing a dish towel on top of the flames (a very bad idea), and tossing water on top of an electrical fire, the models finally come up with the solution of unplugging the toaster. Good call!

Jessica does not do very well on the rest of the show. In fact--

[Spoiler alert.]

In fact, she becomes the latest contestant to be kicked off the show. This may not be connected to her nearly killing everyone while making tacos. But that probably didn't help.

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.
