Banks Fools Ellen By Playing Male Rapper

Former supermodel Tyra Banks fooled pal Ellen Degeneres when she appeared on her TV show, dressed as one of Chingy's male background rappers. The ex-catwalk star was filming a piece, in which she spent a day as a man, for her own talk show TYRA. She says, "I wanted to see what it felt like to be, like, part of an entourage of a rapper... My name was UNCLE D." But the alter-ego confession on yesterday's (30OCT06) ELLEN wasn't as much of a surprise for DeGeneres as what came after, when Banks recalled kissing a girl as Uncle D. Banks said, "We came downstairs from the hotel and there were all these girls outside waiting for Chingy and I was like, 'Yo, you gotta get through me to get to Chingy,' and this one girl kisses me... to get to Chingy." Lesbian DeGeneres squirmed as Banks continued, "For a second I was like, 'Ah, it's a girl...'" The host said, "That was weird, I bet," prompting red-faced Banks to hold her head in her hands.
