The jugular, Elmo.  Make it count.

Not content with just living in a fantasy world, Tyra Banks is now writing fantasy novels about the world of modeling.  People reports that she has a three book deal through Random House, and ABC provides a synopsis:

She has already finished the first, called “Modelland”, which is about a teen girl in a make-believe society at an academy for exceptional models called Intoxibellas. It will be published in the summer of 2011. [

Here’s a statement from Banks:

“It’s my novel called Modelland (pronounced “Model Land”) [Ed. – Thanks Captain Obvious.] that takes you to a fantastical place you’ve never seen, or heard about, or read about before … Where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye. […] Modelland has always been a part of my mind and my heart,” she says. “I’m excited that you’ll be able to read about this magical world that’s been living in my dreams for so many years.” [via People]

Wow, I hope the whole series is as original and exciting as that.  Tell me more about hearts and dreams and the blinks of an eye.  I’ve never heard such fantastical things before.   Well, at least she picked the right genre.  If you’ve never witnessed the crazy alternate reality Banks lives in, watch below as she feels up an American Idol winner and freaks out over vaseline. Um, two separate videos, I mean.  Although, if the two could be combined, that would be a fantasy we’d like her to write about.
