Here's my synopsis of the show:
Tyra first said that they can't discuss her legal case yet, but she'll be back later to talk about it.
First of all, Beverly looks
I've never heard her talk before, and she's really articulate. I didn't realize Beverly was younger than Tyra.
Then Tyra goes into her whole "when I was 17 in Paris" bit, talking about how big and popular Beverly was. She was all, "People talk about Naomi, but
were huge too! You were one of the top ten models then."
Beverly started modeling at 12
and made her first million at 14.
Tyra said she remembers Beverly spending
of money all the time, even inviting poor old Tyra up from her windowless basement room to her plush penthouse while they were in Venice.
Bev mentions feeling uncomfortable in the Lagerfield dressing room as a young girl.
Something happened with Bev's father that made the news back then; it had her stressed out. She said she started drugs at 22, but she was drinking as a young teen. People thought she was on drugs before she ever was because she partied so much.
Tyra kept emphasizing and questioning her about her drug use. "How much did you do it? When would you do it? When'd you go to rehab?" blah blah. A turning point came for Bev when she missed a job with Meisel
for $50000. She said she didn't care. At one time, she owned a 3-story expensive apartment in NY.
Bev apparently didn't want to be a model. She says she stopped using drugs before it destroyed her life, family, and financial security. Tyra ends by reminiscing about the famous shoot with her, Bev and Naomi and Bev remembers how awkward the shoot was because she was friends with both of them.
Then Cairo, Bev's daughter comes out. She's 12 (so Bev is only 30?) and wants to model. She sounds smart and looking like her mother and the singer Brandy.
