She's young, gorgeous and phenomenally successful—so what is Tyra Banks still seeking? In a heartfelt conversation with Dr. Maya Angelou, the television talk show host and host of UPN's America's Next Top Model opens up about her career, her ambitious plans for the future and finding Mr. Right. On the flipside, Dr. Angelou offers Tyra advice on living in the now, taking time for herself and actively pursuing the man of her dreams.
Formerly one of the world's most famous fashion supermodels, and now a popular television personality, Tyra admits she has trouble slowing down. Dr. Angelou offers Tyra some ways to stop and smell the roses, and get to know herself better: Buy something nice for yourself, and something nice for a friend, Dr. Angelou says. Or get away for a relaxing weekend with a great book and a bottle of champagne!
When Tyra shares she's looking for that special someone, Dr. Angelou is not surprised to hear most men are too intimated to date Tyra—but her advice is surprising: Write a poem about the man you desire and spare no details—before you even meet him, Dr. Angelou tells Tyra. She shares wisdom for Tyra that all people with great aspirations can relate to, from the importance of an elder in one's life to demonstrating courage, and more.
