Tyra Banks Isn’t Happy With Victoria’s SecretBy: Meaghan Ellis - August 6, 2014
Tyra Banks isn’t very happy with Victoria’s Secret. Although the former model rose to stardom during her tenure as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, she still has a bone to pick with the famous San Francisco-based company.
According to ABC News, Banks recently appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen. During her chat with Cohen, she revealed why she isn’t too happy with the massive lingerie retailer.
The America’s Next Top Model creator revealed a promise was made to her by the company when she was an Angel. However, the promise was broken shortly after her departure.
“The president of Victoria’s Secret promised me a lifetime supply of Victoria’s Secret products, even after I decided to leave the company,” she explained to Cohen. “But once I left, he only let me have it for a year. So I have a bone to pick.”
Banks was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 1997 to 2005. However, her career didn’t stop there. In 2010, she re-signed with her former modeling agency IMG Models. She’s also now a fashion contributor for the Vogue Italia website. Then, of course, there’s still the ever-popular America’s Next Top Model.
“I have been asked to do a reunion many years ago, and I said no because I was trying to be taken seriously as a talk show host and as an executive producer and as a businesswoman,” Banks revealed.
When asked if she’d consider taking the company up on their offer now, she revealed she’s still undecided about it all.
“I don’t know if I would,” she said. “But whenever I see them, I feel like we have a connection, these Angels, because we’re like the O.G. original Angels. Like, that was invented on us.”
The 21st cycle of America’s Next Top Model is scheduled to premiere Monday, August 18, 2014 at 9/8c.
