Tyra Banks may have ended her talk show months ago, but she’s still tying up some loose ends from the series.
This is way worse than endless reruns: The model-turned-media-maven is being sued for a segment “The Tyra Banks Show” did about teen sex addicts. Beverly McClendon, the mother of a then-15-year-old girl featured on the show, filed suit against Tyra on October 8.
Beverly claims her daughter responded to a casting call “Tyra” did and producers flew the girl out to New York for an appearance and set her up with a hotel room. The problem is that the girl did not have permission to participate in the show.
Warner Bros. Entertainment and the executive producers of the talk show have also been named in the suit, which seeks $3 million.
Beverly is now trying to get an injunction on the episode, which she thinks was "was undoubtedly watched by sexual deviants, perverts and pedophiles alike," to keep it from re-airing in the future
