This is nothing to “smeyes” about: Is a right wing conspiracy keeping Tyra Banks from becoming America’s Next Top Author? On Tuesday, TyTy announced that she is writing her debut novel, the first in a trilogy of children’s fantasy novels called Modelland — which details the wild adventures of a fierce group of butt-kicking models called “The Intoxibellas.”
Despite inking a deal for a new imprint with Random House Books — dubbed Bankable Books — we hear the supermodel is superpissed that conservative chatterbox Sarah Palin selected the same day to drop a bit of literary news of her own.
After the success of her memoir Going Rogue last year, the former GOP VP candidate will be releasing America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag on Nov. 23.
HarperCollins describes the book as “selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her,” along with “the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.”
Palin’s announcement infuriated the notoriously self-centered Tyra, snitches say.
“Miss Tyra doesn’t like sharing the spotlight with anyone. This was meant to be the day the whole world was talking about Tyra and her first novel ‘Modelland,’” says a Tyra tattle. “Now it’s all been ruined by Sarah Palin announcing her second book will be titled, ‘America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag.’ Tyra is convinced this wasn’t a coincidence.”
