Time may heal wounds, but – according Tyra Banks – not all of them.
The supermodel turned super-mogul revealed in a new interview that she’s still scarred by the rivalry with Naomi Campbell.
As widely known, the pair were pit against one another during their 90s heyday, with Banks using her former talkshow platform to claim Campbell was mean to her.
The Brit-bred diva then guested on said show and asserted that she did not recall any messiness. By the time the credits rolled, the ladies had made amends and that was seemingly that.
However, during a recent interview on Norwegian chat show Skavlan, Banks says not only has she not forgotten the drama, but that she’s also still “very” scared of Campbell.

Accompanied by father of her son, photographer Erik Asla, Tyra said:
“I got to Paris, and it was very difficult. I did really well really fast, but then the industry was saying, ‘Oh, look out Naomi Campbell, here comes Tyra Banks! So Naomi Campbell, sit your butt down.’ It wasn’t fair to Naomi, because [they weren’t saying this to the other model that weren’t Black]. But her response was … to this day, I’m very scared of her. It was very difficult. — like some of my lowest times of my life — dealing with that.”

What’s your take?
Is Tyra simply exercising her license to tell “her” story or should she stop harping on about it?
