From offstage until the moment I walk onstage, I constantly tweak my talk show and 'Top Model', but at the same time, I often leave my private life by the wayside.
I enjoy doing fashion shows and transforming myself into different looks for photo shoots.
I loved planning 'The Tyra Show' more than actually having to do it. I loved coming up with show ideas, honing each program and crafting it. I'm more excited being in a meeting than being on TV.
I was backstage in Paris and saw Cindy Crawford doing House Of Style. I thought, I would love to be in control of my career.
