Today Tyra Banks will air her "daytime exclusive" with a 34-year-old woman who suffers from Proteus Syndrome, a rare medical condition which causes gargantuan growth in her legs—giving her an extremely un-proportioned body. The British woman, Mandy Sellars, was in NYC telling Tyra of her troubles shedding any of the weight (the bottom half of her body weighs 215 lbs). She told the host: "In '95 I had liposuction on this knee area here. It took away about six pounds of weight and within the space of maybe a few months it doubled in size again...I wish I never had it done, but hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn't it?" To give you an idea, her right foot is 16" long and 7" wide (her custom shoes cost around $4,000).
