It seems as though the Chrihanna saga has brought mofos out of the woodwork to share their respective stories, and Tyra has one as well:

In the wake of pop star Rihanna’s alleged beating by singer boyfriend Chris Brown, Tyra Banks is devoting an episode of her talk show to the issue of teen dating abuse.

It’s a subject close to her heart. In the segment airing Thursday on “The Tyra Banks Show,” the super model shares her experience dating a man who emotionally abused her. Banks says the man chipped away at her, trying to break her down so he could be in control. One day, she woke up and decided to end the relationship because “when you’re done, you know you’re done.”

Banks will be a guest on the live Thursday edition of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which Winfrey has dedicated to dating violence in response to the alleged assault of Rihanna.

Right, wrong, or indifferent; you knew Tyra wasn’t gonna be far from all the commotion.  Share your story, girlfriend.  We promise to listen.

    Women who are influential should speak out against domestic violence.

    Women who are influential should speak out against domestic violence.

    then they should have been speaking out about it way before this. They shouldn’t have waited until someone famous became a victim of it to speak out about it.

    If this would have been an everyday person, the show topics would have been Make-overs and some celebrity and how happy they are in life. They might be using it to speak out against it, but they are also using it for exposure.

    Oprah, Tyra, Gale, Robin Givens… all of these heifers need to shut the hell up and mind their own damn business.
    Chris Brown IS NOT O.J. Simpson ! This was an isolated incident that has been blown out of proportion. Again, no one knows what the hell happened. All we’ve heard is rumors from STD’s to stilettos upside the head to sex-texing. Let’s retire this damn story.

    These ppl are not going to stop until this little boy commits suicide. Dear God!!!

    Why was it ok for Rhianna to hit him? I just don’t get it.

    I guess they didn’t read the arrest warrant like I did I see that most of those things that Rhianna claimed transpirred were not plausible.

    I guess foreheads have to stick together.

    Women (and men) get beat up every day by their spouses or significant others and no one makes a big deal out of it. But because it happened to this trick… it’s a big deal…I just don’t get it. What about women who really do get beat up?

    She said that it happened before, where are the bruises. She wears as little clothes as possible and I haven’t seen any bruises.

    Why cant boys defend themselves? I know I would not want some chick beating my father, brother or son.
