Tyra Banks Says Kim Kardashian Coaxed Her Into Underwear Modeling

Banks recently appeared in an ad for Kardashian’s Skims shapewear line, despite being adamantly opposed to it, after being retired from modeling for a while.

“At first I said no, I stopped being in panties,” Banks told “The Late Late Show” host James Corden on Wednesday. “I’m a businessman now.”

But Kardashian didn’t hear about it and pressured Banks for 30 minutes over the phone to take the gig, saying she’d be “crazy” to turn it down.

“She’s a businesswoman,” Banks said. “She broke it left, right, center. I hung up the phone, talked to my mom, and my mom was like, ‘Kim’s right, you crazy man. Get your ass in their panties right now.'”

The ‘Dancing With the Stars’ host heeded her mother’s wishes and posed with Kardashian and other top models Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel.
