“I got to Paris in the early 90s and it was very difficult. I did very well, very fast. But then the industry was saying, ‘Look out Naomi Campbell, here comes Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell sit your butt down, this younger one is coming to take your place,’” the supermodel confessed.

“It was really unfair to her because the other models that weren't black, like Kate Moss came up, we were the same generation, they weren't saying, 'Look out Christy Turlington, this cheek bone girl has cheekbones higher than yours,’ she continued. “So, you know, it wasn't fair to Naomi, but her response to this day was… I'm very scared of her. It was very difficult, very, very. Some of my lowest times of my life dealing with that.”

“I don't condone her actions and her response, but I understand where it comes from, because the world is saying "you're not gonna have your spot, we're gonna take your money, we're gonna take your fame, go sit down, there's somebody else."

“She kept saying it never happened and then there was a commercial break and then she came back and said, you know, ‘I’m sorry,'” Tyra said. “And, oh my God, I just cried like a baby. To hear that after so many years of pain and dealing with it publicly … me having to leave agencies because of her … to hear that apology meant the world to me. She has no idea what that did for me.”
