Tyra has a heart

Tyra Banks is going to do something she usually doesn't do. She is going to give some wannabe runway divas a second chance.

But this second chance comes for those who were outside a New York hotel awaiting to audition for America's Next Top Model when an ugly melee errupted and halted the casting.

Potential models were left in tears, six people were taken to the hospital and three people were arrested.

The following statement was posted on the CW web site from Tyra Banks:

"To all the Top Model hopefuls who were affected by the New York casting, we are doing everything we can to make sure that ALL the girls who weren’t seen, get an opportunity to audition – we’ll update you on our plans very soon. It is so important to me to redefine beauty, and make sure that everyone gets a fair chance to pursue their dream. I am beyond excited for Cycle 13; for the first time ever, young women 5′7″ and under have a shot at becoming America’s Next Top Model! I encourage each girl to come out ready to rock the runway and show off their fiercest pose. I’m rooting for all of you!”
