Tyra Banks can now add the title “New York Times BestSelling Author” to her resume.
Her new book, Modelland ranked number 2 on the NYT’s bestseller’s list and a movie deal is rumored to be on the horizon.
But it seems to be an online backlash from those claiming that the book was ghostwritten and is nothing but “trash.”
One blog announcing Ms. Tyra’s new NYT’s status produced numerous comments ranging from “crap book+ nice tits/gullible idiots=bestseller” to “…a lab rat could have written her book.”
My guess is those same commenters never read Modelland, plan to read it, or even knew Tyra wrote a book until they read the blog announcement.
Although there’s plently of criticism from reviewers there’s seems to be more likes than dislikes for Modelland. One reviewer even dubbed it “Hogwarts Modeling School.”
I don’t have the inside track on whether the book was ghostwritten or not. But when you take into account the numerous celebrities and even well-known, highly esteemed authors who have others write their books, it seems unfair to point the finger at one person without chastising other authors for doing the same.
It’s obvious Tyra Banks is adding to her ever-expanding franchise and frankly I for one refuse to hate on her for basically doing the damn thang!
