Tyra, I have watched your show all the time, I see so many make overs. I have always wished I could get the scares on my face removed and I have a deep crease on my forehead. I went thru school and I was always made fun of. I do not have the self esteem I wish I had to really go out and not be self concious about my scars, I can't find the right make up, I hate to look in the mirrors. three yrs ago I sold all I had to move n with my mom that passed away within 8 mo. and I went thru a divorce at the same time. I fell in a deep depression, and it is hard for me to even go out to face the world, I feel my life slipping away,and I can't find it within me to even try. And I would love to have a make over. I am a single mom, I have raised my 4 children by myself, I still have 1 at home, he is a blessing to me, he is 16, and sacrifices alot of his time helping me try to get myself to even to get out of bed or off the couch, also I have gained alot of weight from not having a reason to do anything, to add on, I got fired from nursing home, I am a CNA, and it was the only income we had. We live in a low income apt. thanking God that we have a place to stay, we take it one day at a time. I know you have many, many people wanting on your show and I am no better, I really don't expect to get any response, but I just had to write and pray that someday my dream would come true. I got burned when I was 4. 15yrs ago, I started the process of getting my scars removed, but things kept getting n my way to were I finly just gave up. Maybe God will send this up front and touch your heart, and let you know how I truely feel. I don't know if u come to places where I live, but I had a great impulse to write this. something told me if I don't take a chance, I will never know......Thank-you for at least reading this...I pray I will get this makeover and let it be a tremendous change in my life. I am 44yrs old, divorced, and I feel my time fading away, feeling unworthy for an attractive guy that will truely love me. May God Bless You, send with care Janet Hawkins

Hi tyra , First let me start off by saying that I am a person who's very inspired by you. I am an overweight woman but know after watching your shows I know that I am beautiful. Thanks for all of your inspiring shows and you talked about sister hood on one of your shows and what is the worst thing a sister can do to you well instead of me being the one that got hurt I hurt them and because of your show I am working up the nerves to call them and tell them I sorry I just hope that that times comes soon so that I don't have to live with the regrets because now they are overweighing my dreams keep making those show that can help us to face our fears because you are helping me to conquer mine thanks tyra

Tyra should know that there's a Sheriff's Deputywho would NOT mind taking her out for a cup of coco.He's located in Carson, California, I work in records. We had talk of Ms. Banks and he spoke sure of himself. I told him, "okay, stay tuned" . . . . . . . now, does she even read her comments? ") Well, good luck to Deputy _ _ _ _ _. Oops! almost said his name. Of course, they should be introduced first, though, dating a Sheriff's deputy can be intimidating so if Tyra has no problem ..... while he's still unmarried having no kids. His demographics? respectful.toodles!

Not wishing to bash the dreams of those whom wish to become models,actors and actresses, this planet has enough of those; it's a shallow dream, the problem with today's culture is there lack of vision. Where prey tell are those, whom wish to become Doctors, Scientists, the people who are going to help the future...Instead of appearing on the next X-Factor, I hope that for all the sakes of this and the next generation; they soon realise that this life does not need that many more of those people. My contribution to this planet is not of a great deal, but I am also of the opinion, that it's not the worst. I am not a criminal, a thug, a bad singer in denial, I am not going to save the world from disease; nor am I going to inflict it to my horrible singing. Teachers, Parents, should be encouraging there children to be more than they can be. Not just helping them into a business which, yes at times; I am sure is great, but the pitfalls are potentially very serious! I do not wish to sound like a boring drag, and therefore I am going to stop.p.s is Tyra Banks, the one that was thin, then really weighty, then lost all the weight, then put it back on again. I Have lost track.

Hi Tyra! I know you get thousands of comments just like mine, but I have a 13 year old daughter (she'll be 14 in December) and Tyra when I tell you she's pretty, 5'5, size 0-1 in juniors, and has the most fierce runway walk you've ever seen for someone her age. She has 2 agents who cant get her work, all she need is an opportunity! She watches your show (America's Next Top Model) like all of the time which is where she picked up her runway walk tecniques. You're such an inspiration for not only Black women, but all women. She would really like to get a chance to meet you. I really think you can make it happen for her Tyra, I really hope you read this comment. Hope to hear from you soon!Venshelle

I love Tyra soo much.She is such an inspeartion to me and so many other teens.She is a true beauty and definatly a beautiful person in the inside and out.She trys to reach out to young teens that are struggling with their weight to become aneorxic like some of the models today.She tells these girls you don't have to be thin to be pretty.Tyra has helped me overcome that point in my life.Even tho I don't look fat at all ,I would still think I am fat when I looked in the mirror.Now I see that is this worth it?? To put my life in danger?? NO Way!!Tyra also says that she is in the business that feeds the image of supper skinny models and it is her job to try to stop that.I think the media has a impact of young girls wanting to be skinny.Tyra has helped so many different people in so many ways.She is such a angel.Every girls probably wants to meet the wonderful Tyra Banks.She is soo down to earth.I know I do want to meet her someday.I love you Tyra

Hi Tyra Banks, it's good to know that you did a show on plus size women, i'm one i have tried so many times to loose weight but always gain back more, i need to keep my weight down because of a health issue, but you know what Tyra it cost so much money to eat healthy and that's hard when you don't have a job. see i have been trying to get my house cleaning business off the ground by looking for the right clientiel too service, but i will keep on with this because some one will give me a call. but look girl you keep on being real that's what the people like never be a fake or lie too your t.v. viewers because when they have some one who can relate too them and their problems and some one who wants too help them in one way or another that's makes a world of differance in their lives, so take care and always be thankful for the mother GOD has Blessed you with and your Dad for the good up bringing they instill in you ok bye now hope too hear from you one day. Ms Net

hi tyra i just saw one of your show "should you marry for money". i was a bit taken back at those young girls i couldnt believe what i was hearing. i have a 4 yr old daughter i would never teach her that money is more important... her father and i are going through a divorce,i married for security cuz i dont have a good job an still couldnt be happy he was never around but always gave me anything i want material wise and i grew to love him until i realise that im not happy then things got worse cuz he couldnt touch me at all sexually, so we are going through a divorce.i met someone who dosent have money and happens to be younger than me with no kids or ever been married. i have to say its hard but im working he does too but not much money we dont live together but im finally happy and at peace with my self...he pays attention to me , listens, romantic, great communication,loving, basically the works all he is missing is the money... but thats not a problem for us or me especially, im so in love with him i do believe we will honor our vows when the time is right... we have only been together 2yrs... but we understand that it might not last forever and we wont fall out of love we jus grew deeper into it. what im trying to say is that i love him no matter what and he loves me no matter what, we have a great time with out even having sex, going to fancy restarants, clubs, or any of those things. i mean it would be nice but i have faith in him that one day he will find a better job an if not once we hv each other things will work out. thanks and keep up the good work Tyra...

Hi Tyra, I am having some hard times at this moment. I know there are alot of those in the world. I try to watch your show everyday that I can. I really enjoy the show you are so real and I know that you care alot about others, you are a great person and I feel that anyone that loves their mother as much as I do, are real. I seen a show that caught my eye, it is the one where you dressed up as a big woman, that was an inspiration, you care and now as you know it is a very difficult thing to go through. Well on with my dilima, I am looking into alot of weight loss programs, I have to loose weight, for medical reasons. I have went through testing and EKG and bloodwork, and my family practictionist has even wrote a letter to the insurance co, and the hospital where I was suppose to go. I have been dealing with this since July of 2005, I was hoping to get the sugery before my deductable runs out. Now I have to go to a diffrent place to get this done. This hospital needs $2000 before I can have the sugery. So again I have to wait and now the deductable will be due again which is $500, so now I just want to give up. I know I can't, I have to keep trying and hope for the best. I need help with this, I need to do something, I have picked up more hours at work and also I have my 12 yr old son, and my husband, it takes both incomes to make it, so I'm still trying, but I feel I am not getting anywhere. Thank you so much for letting my talk about this. Give me some feed back if you get some time please. I really don't know what I can do at this point, I am lost and very depressed. Yours truely Jacki Lukacsphone# 330-626-3194address 2964 Work Rd.Ravenna, OH 44266
