On Oct. 3, on “Sherri,” Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show host, comedian, actor and best-selling author Sherri Shepherd spoke to the iconic model Tyra Banks. While chatting, the “Dancing with the Stars” host revealed why she needed a name change once she went from supermodel to actress. Said Tyra, “When I was a model, a new model, I was just Tyra. There was no Banks. And then I got my first acting job on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” And the first couple of episodes when they flashed my name, to say, “Tyra”…something felt weird to me that I was acting and I didn’t have a last name. So, I added my last name back. Also, I was a Cover Girl model…and they used to put Tyra there and I was like I feel I need to be Banks…I did the Cher/Madonna thing for a second, but maybe I should go back to Tyra.”
