Tyra Banks to write first book, read first book

Virginia Woolf. Willa Cather. Louis May Allcot. What do these women have in common besides being brilliant writers? They were all really ugly. If you think that’s exist, check out Truman Capote, he was know prize winner either. It’s just like, can’t we finally get a smokin’ hotty to write something worth reading?!?

Today Tyra Banks has announced she will be writing her first novel called “Modelland”. After conquering the world of modeling and serving as the producer/creator of the massively entertaining America’s Next Top Model and the soul crushingly dumb The Tyra Banks Show, has apparently decided to try her hand at a new art form. I mean really what’s left for this artisan? Sculpting a massive statue to her own ego? A kabuki sex tape?

In Modelland, Banks writes about a group of teen girls who are magically transported to “a make-believe place called Modelland…where “Intoxibellas” are trained.  Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too.” I had no idea Banks was so interested in writing non-fiction! It all just sounds so Proustian and will surely be WAY better than Lauren Conrad’s book.

Banks is super serious about this project you guys–she blogs of  about her love of books “I step into a bookstore and I shake (really!) because I love books so much”. Did she say ‘love’? I think she meant “I shake thanks to the time Karl Lagerfeld assaulted me with a copy of Anna Karenina.” Someone better get the Pulitzer Prize people ready! This one’s gonna be a doozy.
