Where in the World Is Tyra Banks? André Leon Talley Doesn't Know

A mischievous young shit-starter called into Watch What Happens Live! on Sunday for the express purpose of asking fashion icon André Leon Talley (ALT) to choose between Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks.

This is a fundamentally rigged question; both are supermodels with expansive talent and business acumen, but Naomi Campbell is the OG, and close personal friends with ALT. This is made clear as he answers the caller’s question by delivering a Mariah-worthy travelogue. “I don’t see Tyra. I think she’s in Norway?... Did she have a baby? Someone tell me?” (Tyra’s baby, York, was born January 27, 2016. That was 452 days ago.) “I’m up to speed with Naomi,” ALT continues. “She’s coming in from Dubai.”

In this clip, his phone rings and he picks it up, but the caller hangs up. Your local meteorologist predicts a 63 percent chance of Tyra.

This just reminds me of a simpler time, back when Tyra had the greatest talk show ever and she invited Naomi on to tell her what a horrible bully she was to her back in the day when they were supermodels. It was beautiful...I cried. And I swear to this day Naomi almost laughed in her face when Tyra said she was afraid of her.
