Tyra Banks is the American Dream?

For me it's a real toss up on who my favorite resident "crazy" is. I mean, do I go with Dina Lohan or do I go with Tyra Banks. I think that Tyra is consistently crazy so I may have to go with her. Anyway, while Kimora Lee Simmons debuted her KLS collection, Tyra Banks single-handedly made each photo opportunity about herself. Brilliant. Tyra started with "out-kissing" Kimora, then "out-smiled" another guest, and then closed the event by "out-eating" the guests at dinner. Good for her.

Anyway, since I heart Tyra's ability to make everything about herself I found this short article from Forbes Magazine when they asked Tyra what she thought the American Dream was. Let's read together, shall we?
"The American Dream is about fulfilling your potential to the max. It’s not a chase for material goods, it's about learning what inspires you in life and creating a plan to turn it into your life's work.... I guess I'm traditional in that I believe hard work and determination have a lot to do with achieving one's dreams. When I was a model, my dream was to have a talk show, so I made a plan to do it--and look at me now."
Don't get me wrong, Tyra has made a success out of herself. Great! I'd kill for her money. I like how Tyra basically says that she is the American Dream without actually having to say it. Pure brilliance.
