A close friend of Tyra Banks' thinks the model-turned-Oprah, Jr. was expressing a secret wish when she dressed up as Michelle Obama for a recent Harper's Bazaar spread. "I think she actually could see herself in the White House," the friend said. "No, not as president, but first lady? She’d love nothing more." Here's the only problem - to become first lady, you have to actually be married to the president. It's not like becoming Oprah, Jr., where you can blow a bunch of TV execs until they give you a show, hence fulfilling your desire. TV execs are a dime a dozen...there's only one president at a time, and if you miss your chance you have to wait four more years, and at that rate you'll be an old hag in no time. So Tyra will just have to be content with playing dress-up...which in her twisted mind is probably the same thing anyway.
