Tyra Banks is the social media queen!
Tyra Banks returns to the top of The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Personalities chart, reigning for a third nonconsecutive week in all.
Banks has now led the chart, based on data from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, for three weeks in all.
Could the photo she posted of her son, York Banks-Asla have anything to do with it?
The TV show host recently posted a photo of her son on Instagram that she is now saying she kinda regrets.
The America’s Got Talent host was on NBC’s Late Night Thursday with Seth Meyers where she explained how it all went down.
“It wasn’t so much that I was itching for the world to see him. I went to a restaurant for Father’s Day with my son and my dad. It was by the ocean and my son was, ‘Awa! Awa! Awa!’ Water. And so I was like, ‘OK, you’re going to get in the water for the first time.’ I slathered him with sunscreen; he was looking purple, ’cause he’s black, so when we put on sunscreen we look purple,” Banks said. “And he just was looking crazy—got slammed by waves, sand everywhere.”
Banks then spotted the paparazzi taking pictures.
“I’m trying to hide him with a blanket. I pull over the gas station after they get the shot, I text his dad and I‘m like, ‘I‘ve got to put this picture out before the paparazzi. I don’t want them to make money off our child and have the first picture.’ So, I posted the damn picture,” she explained. “The next day, there ain’t no paparazzi pictures, ’cause mama knew how to hide that camera. She’s a supermodel for a reason! And so now his picture is out there and I didn’t need it to be!”
