Tyra Gets Down, Talks Va-jay-jay

tbanks11.jpg

We don’t call this the Idiot Box for nothing. Tyra Banks dedicates her whole show on Monday to the vagina. From the press release:

Tyra begins the hour giving her audience a test to see if they can name all the parts of the vagina to unbelievable results – only 11% of her audience filled out the anatomical chart correctly.

Another segment features a field trip:

Having avoided the doctor for 28 years, Tyra takes a Plano, Texas woman, who happens to be a registered nurse, to her very first gynecological appointment.

We’re pretty sure the Texan, not Tyra, has avoided the steel stirrups but you get the idea.

Tyra makes it personal, too:

Tyra also shares with the audience the moment her mother gave her a hand mirror and told her to look at herself “down there.”

Unfortunately, Shonda Rhimes, the popularizer of vajayjay, isn’t a special speculum-toting guest.

We’re hoping Elizabeth Snead, who’s on The Dish Rag down there at the LA Times, will cover the show.

See You Next Tuesday Monday!
