Looks like Tyra Banks is following in the footsteps of her protégée and Top Model Adrianne Curry for once! Last week, Tyra sent out an e-mail saying she'd been keeping a secret for months - she and some hot designers have created Tyra Banks' Virtual Studio on the internet. She explains "We all IM and chat online with our friends, so I decided to TYRASIZE (kind of like "Super Size") online chatting - so I've had the talk show set and myself turned into 3D animation!" Users can even leave the studio and explore an entire virtual city filled with fun. Tyra will host a post Grammy Party, where she'll be on hand to ask you your favorite moments from the big show and chat with fans like yourself, today at 6pm PST/9 EST.

Here's what you need to do: download the software ("don't worry," says Tyra. "You know I'm cheap, so the software is free!") and then you create a virtual "mini me" of yourself. You can pick and choose from different hairstyles, eye color, clothing and more. Then you can hang out on the set and chat with other people, a group of your friends, or even Tyra. Apparently, Tyra fans have been flooding to the site, so if you just can't get enough, you better check it out.
