Tyra Unveils Real Hair; Interviews Evil Leprechaun

For the premiere of the fifth season of her talk show today, Tyra wore her real hair. Then she sat down to interview Perez Hilton and pretended like she doesn't read his site or hate his guts.



OK, first of all, this:


Tyra came out with her natural hair completely wet.

And she had audience members come up and touch it.

The lesson here was: "Wigs and weaves are options, not something that you need."

Then she got a blowout and had it styled, and continued on with the show.

Perez came out.

I know, right? For real:

(That's cereal milk on his chin, BTW.)

Tyra referred to him as "The King of Blogging," even though she told him, "I'm not very familiar with your site…" Bull. Fucking. Shit.

That post was the seed that her manure developed into the tree of knowledge that is "Kiss my fat ass!"

She even knows his nicknames for her.

Tyra tried to get Perez to admit that he'd been teased as a child and that's why he grew up to be such an angry asshole. He wouldn't though. Then she tried to strike a deal with him. She asked him to not make fun of the underage children of celebrities for one year. He refused.

Then she knocked it down to three months, but he wanted an "out clause."

Then they agreed that he would only post "newsy" content about celebrities' children, and he'd leave opinion out of it. He would have to do this for three months, and if he followed through, he would get to appear on a future episode of ANTM.

It would seem that he didn't stick to the deal. It's kind of a relief though, that he won't be appearing on Top Model, though.

I think Tyra’s outing is a wonderful thing.

Here is what I don’t appreciate:

1. Her unveiling is not 100%. Her real hair would be unprocessed, unpermed and kinky. Black hair in its natural state is a kinky and curly. Not bone straight and wet.

2. Her ‘natural tirade’ perpetuate ‘open season’ on black women and further scrutiny of their looks and hair. When can we address real topics facing black women – persistent negative stereotypes, high AIDS cases in our communities, sexual and mental abuse etc?

3. Not all black women are bald, have hair damage or wear extensions! And if they do, it’s a good idea to wear extra hair. Jewish Orthodox women do it daily.

4. Where is the ‘unveiling’ of all the Spanish, White, Asian and other ethnicity women who wear extension just as much as black women? When is the last time anyone saw Brittany, Christina or any of the Pussy Cat Dolls real hair? Anyone asking those girls about theirs weaves on the damn street or TV (ala Chris Who Every Black Woman Should Hate By Now Rock)?! This ‘unveiling’ makes is seems as though black women are the only ones who wear them!

LET ME SAY IT LOUD AND PROUD! WHITE WOMEN WEAR WEAVES/FAKE HAIR/EXTENSIONS DAILY TOO! It’s just that no one goes around feeling or staring in the back of their heads.

5. Where is the coverage of all the nasty, hurtful comments that black women have to endure daily about their hair? No one addresses the pain black women deal with from verbal assaults or the invasions of privacy of their beauty regimes.

6. Black women with relaxed hair are NOT the only black women to wear added hair to extend its length and fullness – TONS OF NATURAL HAIR BLACK WOMEN WEAR EXTENSIONS DAILY-Jill Scott, Erkryah Badu, Lauren Hill (back in the day) The YAKI pack comes in natural too!

7. Where is the media coverage and loud praise for what black women have naturally? Their beautiful skin –that comes in array of colors and tones or their beautiful shapely bodies (not all black women are fat!). How about the ‘black don’t crack’ factor? Tons of black women in their 60’s and 70’s look like they are not a day of 40s. Where is the Tyra/Perez show on that?

8. And lastly, what someone wears on their person is there fucking business. They don’t need anyone on this friggin planet to tell them what they should or should not do with their own damn head. At the end of the day, it’s really called minding your own damn business.

As a black ‘un-natural’ woman I will personally viciously attack ANYONE who has an inappropriate comment, question or statement about the hair on my head. This regular black woman is fed up with the probing, insults and the soap box speeches. I’m going to rip up any real hair asking perp like a god damn Bengal Tiger.
