WHEN YOU KNOW BETTER, YOU DO BETTER…

Today is the 60th birthday of Oprah Winfrey, truly an icon. Just in case you don’t know who she is, you’ve apparently been living under a rock on Mars. When she turned 50, she had a big televised black-tie affair. According to sources, the billionaire (with an estimated net worth of $2.9 billion) will have a low-key 60th birthday at home in California on Wednesday.
For years, I have watched her administer her own brand of magic on this world. She is electrifying, poignant, inspirational, and funny all at the same time. She runs her own cable TV channel, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), in partnership with Discovery Communications Inc. She has been a mentor and a support system to many over the years including the likes of Tyra Banks and even President Obama. Though I have been inspired by Oprah over the years, I want you to hear her tell of how she was inspired and who it was that inspired her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY OPRAH!!!

Tyra Banks keeps expanding her brand. She’s stepped her modeling game up and expanded it to another continent. Check out the article from eurweb.com below:

*It’s about time someone recognizes the beautiful women overflowing in Africa.

Tyra Banks is pioneering her reality show in the Motherland with “Africa’s Next Top Model.”

The expansion is the fourth branch of her highly successful franchise. And so far, Tyra’s tapped Nigerian model Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi to serve as the host and co-producer.

“The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent,” Oluchi said in a release.

Tyra also expressed her excitement for the new show via Twitter:

Twelve lucky beauties will be selected from eight countries throughout Africa, and like the American version, the ladies will compete in a number of photo shoots and challenges over the course of 10 episodes to see who makes it to the top.
