We'll admit we give Tyra a very hard time on this site, but it's only because she has the attention and influence of so many girls. That's why we smirked when our MySpace got a message today about appearing on her show.
"Hi, This is NOT SPAM. We're doing a show about living a long, healthy life and we're looking for a woman who wears heels most of the time and large, heavy bags. If you're interested, please call me asap. Julie Ruggiero The Tyra Banks Show"
Obviously, large and heavy bags don't just have damaging price tags - they can also hurt your spine. And heels wear down your tendons, and probably don't contribute to a long, healthy life. But if Tyra wants her fans to give up their teetering pairs of Pradas, she's not making it easy: Witness the countless Top Model episodes where she tells the shorter girls they must always wear heels, or risk looking like they don't belong. Surely that kind of danger is more severe than wrecking all your muscles. Right, Tyra?
