Tyra Banks wants to spread some truth, and a little fantasy.
The talk show host and former model has agreed to a three-book deal with Delacorte Press for a fantasy series for young people. It's about a girl trying to keep up with the beauty game at an elite school for supermodels, or Intoxibellas.
Delacorte said Tuesday that the first novel, "Modelland," comes out in the summer of 2011.
Delacorte is an imprint of Random House Children's Books.
Banks, whom Forbes estimated made $30 million in 2009, is a top earning celebrity. The former supermodel hosts primetime’s “America’s Next Top Model” and daytime talk show “The Tyra Banks Show” and acts as a producer on several shows, including ABC’s “True Beauty” and CW’s cancelled series, “Stylista.”
