Talk show host and host of a successful reality show, Ms. Banks is definitely making bank and trying help people, especially young girls in the process.
I recall her striking resemblence to fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell when noticing her in Essence magazine; she was still a teenager and she's not looked back.
Did you see her in the early Lindsay Lohan movie, Life-Size? She played a Barbie-like doll, Eve, accidentally brought to life as Lohan's character tries to bring her recently deceased mom back-to-life. It's a rather charming movie with good performances by all of the lead actors.
