(Newser) – Tyra Banks is already famous, which is probably how she managed to score a book deal for a tween series about models called “Intoxibellas” who rule over “Modelland” with their superpowers and have “edgy, sexy, exciting adventures.” Just in case the idea of a Top Model-meets-Harry Potter series doesn't pique your interest, consider this: Banks promises some of the characters are inspired by models she knows, “both nice and ‘ice.’”

Which ones won't come off so nice? She won’t say, but a source tells the New York Daily News, “Tyra has had ups and downs with a lot of people, including Janice Dickinson, Naomi Campbell, and Paulina Porizkova.” For more on the plot, click here.
