Ex-catwalk queen Tyra Banks is ready to strip off again on her hit US talk show in a bid to quash claims she has become fat.
The former supermodel has reportedly gained close to thirty pounds since her modelling career began and now weighs 161 pounds.
Tabloids all across US poked fun at her after unflattering holiday photographs taken of Banks in Sydney, Australia last month (December 2006) appeared in style magazines.
They had popped up earlier this month on a celebrity gossip website with the not-so-nice headline: "Tyra Banks is Fat."
But talking to People magazine, an angry Banks expressed her resentment over the person who she believes snapped those pics from an unflattering angle
"I've made millions of dollars with the body I have, so where's the pain in that? If I was in pain, I would have dieted. The pain is not there – the pain is someone printing a picture of me and saying those (horrible) things," said the star.
The former Victoria's Secret model, who stripped to her underwear for a "reveal" show last year (06), now plans to wear the same striped bathing suit she wears in the holiday snapshots on The Tyra Banks Show next week (February 1, 2007) - to prove that sometimes the camera does lie.
