Model-turned-talkshow host Tyra Banks
has been branded a 'phony' by infuriated audience members who waited more than two hours for her to appear in the Tyra Banks Show
The beauty, who won a TV Emmy earlier this year for the series, reportedly ignored fans waiting to film the show on Tuesday in New York while she joked and chatted with staff backstage.
And Banks' actions further angered the audience as they could hear her laughing behind the stage curtain, according to New York gossip column PageSix
A source tells the publication, "You could hear her going on and on because she was standing right behind the stage curtain. She's talking and talking. Meanwhile, you have the entire audience waiting almost two hours for the taping to start."
And fans were said to be unimpressed when the star made it onto the stage, accusing Banks of acting "so cold" towards them.
The source continues, "She leaves us waiting, and everyone is sitting there complaining, and then she comes out and doesn't say a word about it. She didn't even say hello, she got right into her script.
"She acted so cold towards everyone. She's a phony."
The star reportedly further upset the disgruntled audience by taking them outside the studio to release balloons in honor of black models.
The source adds, "She had the audience prance down the street and then release black balloons. It was so disorganized, people fell over the press outside and almost trampled two little girls."
