Tyra Banks WEIGHS IN On Yaya DaCosta Playing Whitney Houston On “WWHL” + EJ Johnson Hits Up Dodgers Game Then PARTIES In L.A.
Tyra Banks made a stop on “WWHL” and chopped it up about her former “ANTM” contestant Yaya DaCosta portraying Whitney Houston in the upcoming LIFETIME biopic. Meanwhile, EJ Johnson was spotted at a Dodgers game and then hitting up the L.A. party scene. Pics and videos inside…
Supermodel/Harvard Business school grad Tyra Banks (and those stockings) stopped by the “Watch What Happens Live” set in NYC last night. She was there to chit-chat with Andy Cohen about her former “Top Model” contestant Yaya DaCosta Alafia playing Whitney Houston in the upcoming LIFETIME biopic, directed by Angela Bassett.
Tyra looked like a proud mama as she gushed about Yaya’s new role and all of the other accomplishments she has made since finishing second on Cycle 3 of the show. The former Victoria's Secret angel said,
“This is insane and huge for me and Yaya I’m super proud of you. You won the acting challenge on America’s Next Top Model back in the day so we knew that there was something special. She’s an actress that use to model.”
She also revealed whether or not she would do a Victoria Secret reunion with the original angels. She revealed,
“I have been asked to do a reunion many years ago and I said ‘No’ because I was trying to be taken seriously as a talk show host and an executive producer and as a businesswoman. I don’t know if I would, but whenever I see them I feel like we have a connection, these angels because we’re like the OG original angels. Like that was invented on us.”

And over in L.A....
"Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills" star EJ Johnson and his sister Elisa Johnson (below) spent some sibling time together at a L.A. Dodgers game last night. Of course, they had the best seats in the house since their dad Magic Johnson is part owner of the professional baseball team.
The two even wore #32 “Magic Johnson” baseball jerseys in honor of their dad's number when he played in the NBA. Cute. Unfortunately, the Dodgers were defeated by the L.A. Angels of Anaheim 5-0.
EJ then did a wardrobe change and hit the streets of L.A....with a fab bag in tow.
He was spotted chatting it up on his cell while making his way into Bootsy Bellows for a fun night out on the town. Life of a #RichKid...must be nice.
