Word around the rumor mill suggests veteran supermodel Tyra Banks was anything but smiles after being denied participation in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last December.
Sources tell Radar Online the 40-year-old star "was dying to appear on the runways as a surprise in the most recent CBS Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but was rejected by the brand and the network, despite her long affiliation with the company."
Banks was allegedly outraged over the matter and has threatened to never work with VS again.
"Tyra’s feelings were hurt because the excuse she was given is that the audience likes to see the newest models, not the ‘veterans,’ on the runway during the VS TV show," the source said.
As one of the most recognizable supermodels of all time, Banks worked as an original VS "Angel" from 1997 to 2005. Unfortunately, it seems that wasn't reason enough to invite the beauty back for an honorary strut.
The source added, "Tyra doesn’t want to make a public spectacle out of the snub, because it would make all the parties involved look bad, but she isn’t happy.”
Banks has yet to confirm or deny the report.
