Embarrassing Moments With Tyra Banks

It's Embarrassing Moments week on TFC, and I have to say that one of my most embarrassing moments of this year was when I went to a taping of the Tyra Banks show. I talked about it on my blog, but I'll relive the humiliation here, just for you:

First of all, the three of us got sat in the front row, so Ty Ty was about five feet away from me and I can confirm that she has the smallest ankles you've ever seen. She's genuinely gorgeous, and her body is a great mix of not-too-thin curves.

Here comes the mortification: I got pulled up on stage to dance with the audience prep guy (who ruled and knew all the moves to Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)"). Unfortunately, I do NOT know all the moves to "Single Ladies." In fact, I know zero dance moves. Period. I'm one of those people who won't even get in the middle of a dance circle among friends, so I was totally red-faced. But I realized that if I fought it, it would just draw more attention to me (which I definitely didn't want) so I sucked it up and did some horribly doofy moves up there!

I'm really glad those 2 minutes are over. Confess an embarrassing moment of your own? It'll make me feel better.

That sounds like something that would happen to me.

I have so many embarrassing moments- I couldn't possibly just list one (so I won't list any!)! But I could totally see myself doing what you did!

You were on Tyra?
Jealousy. Embarrassing moments or not, that's way too cool.

I wish I had been there to see that, Melissa!
I guess my only halfway comparable embarrassing moments that involved being an audience member was when a comedian chose me to poke fun of throughout his entire act.
