Tyra Banks Quits Her Daytime TV Show After A Couple Months
In a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter, Banks said that she wanted to scale back on her daytime duties in order to focus on her cosmetics line.
“This is a very difficult decision, but necessary,” she said in the statement.
FABLife is produced by Disney/ABC. Banks will remain as executive producer through December. With a bench of co-hosts and contributors – including Chrissy Teigen, fashion editor Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk and YouTube star Leah Ashley – there are no plans to replace Banks.
“I will be devoting more time to my new, growing cosmetics company, TYRA Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing my company’s other entertainment ventures. I will however continue to support the growth and success of FABLife and greatly admire my fellow co-hosts and the talented production team behind the show,” Banks added in her statement.
FABLife marked Banks’ highly anticipated return to daytime after The Tyra Banks Show went off the air in 2010. That series ran for five seasons and earned Banks two Daytime Emmy awards for outstanding informative talk show.
While promoting FABLife at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Banks said she had not anticipated a return to daytime and she noted that her life had become too hectic with a talk show and America’s Next Top Model running concurrently.
