Tyra Banks hit her stride while jogging along the Hudson River in New York City earlier this week. The 38-year-old carved time out of her super business schedule to work up a sweat wearing a jacket, black capri pants and a baseball cap.

In an interview with Huffington Post Live, the budding mogul says that she was bullied relentlessly when she was 11 after growing three inches and losing 30 pounds in three months. Bulliest ain’t shit.

“I wasn’t sick, but people thought there was something wrong with me. I was the brunt of every joke, every bad thing. I hated my reflection in the mirror. I would try to stuff food down my throat to gain weight,” she admitted. “Nothing would work. I lived at the hospital with needles in my arms trying to figure out what was wrong with me.”

Well, not the People Of Walmart, but the rest of the world. Those are the most confident people to ever push a shopping cart with the FUPA areas.
