In Case You Missed It: Tyra Banks Stops By ‘SHERRI’

Today on “SHERRI,” Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show host, comedian, actor and best-selling author SHERRI SHEPHERD spoke to the iconic model, TYRA BANKS. While chatting, The Dancing with the Stars host revealed why she needed a name change once she went from supermodel to actress.

See what Tyra had to say inside…

Sherri Shepherd: “Have you ever considered dropping your last name?” 

Tyra Banks:  “When I was a model … a new model. I was just Tyra. There was no Banks. And then I got my first acting job on the “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” And the first couple of episodes when they flashed my name, to say, “TYRA” … something felt weird to me that I was acting and didn’t have a last name. So, I added my last name back. Also, I was a cover girl model …. and they used to put TYRA there and I was like I feel like I need to be BANKS …. I did the Cher/Madonna thing for a second … but maybe I should go back to Tyra.”
