    Oh my gosh. That is complete bullsh*t. I personally know 3 woman, that had they not tried for years (two of them even after repeated miscarriages) they would never have given birth to the beautiful children they now have. It is because of their strength, faith, and support from the loved ones around them that they were able to keep trying until they were finally blessed children of their own.

      Wow, is all I can say about that.

      Don't have to boycott her, cuz I never watched her show. ANTM was good for a few seasons when I had the time to watch it, but not cuz of her.

        Ditto. The boycott of shows that exploit/bait/switch/embarrass/mock shouldn't stop at Tyra either....there are plenty of shows to point a finger at.

          I say we all fill out the form and REALLY FILL OUT THE COMMENTS.... then pass the link to everyone we know and hope they do the same.... maybe if they get flooded with people who are SO offended by this marketing script for her trashy show, they'll actually get the idea that MAYBE the little "jerry springer wannabe" should scrap this idea...

            That is ABSURD! I think I might have to write an angry letter of my own. I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 18 and have already gone through hell trying to preserve my fertility so I have a shot at having a baby. Some people are so STUPID, and yet they end up on television...

              Why wouldn't they just do a show about fertility problems instead? It would be so much more interesting and relevant to the world today. Oprah would be very disappointed.

                    Wow. Struggling for years to concieve is considered obsessed with becoming a mom?! Stalking the maternity ward at the hospital and shouting "That baby should be mine!" to the moms is obsessive. Now that would be a problem. By these standards I could probaly qualify for this show. I haven't struggled, but I spent a good year going back and forth with Brian on why we should TTC when we did instead of waiting a few years. The producers could not only spin that into me being obsessive, but me forcing Brian into parenthood I'm sure! I've always hated talk shows.

                      Seriously, Tyra is not obsessed with being a mom, or obsessed with kids, she is OBSESSED with herself!!! No wonder she always refers to all of these men and people who hated on her, because she is the most selfish person ever! She should just have herself on as a guest everyday, because the only person she talks about or is concerned about is TYRA! EVER! Sorry to rant, I just think that she is a terrible role model and is a super huge hypocrite. I can't even bare to watch her it makes me sick. Why is this show even on the air? Shame on Tyra for any show she does... she tries to make women look stupid when she is the one who looks like an idiot...
