But Tyra’s own attitude seems far less than enlightened. Maybe Tila Tequila isn’t the ideal representative for bisexuals — not that one person could ever represent such a diverse group — but she definitely seems cooler than Tyra in this video. (Warning: Tila has a shrieky laugh. This could be painful if you’re wearing headphones.)
I can’t believe Tyra presented herself as so clueless — and therefore presented bisexuality as completely unimaginable to straight people. “Thanks for explaining this whole thing to me.” That’s ridiculous. Especially for Tyra: Maybe all those rumors about her and WNBA star Teresa Weatherspoon were just rumors, but you’d think they would have made the mere notion of a same-sex relationship a little less unfathomable in her mind.
I think maybe I’m glad I didn’t see the whole episode! But if you did see it, let us know whether Tyra ever redeemed herself.
