Chrissy Teigen Denies Making Tyra Banks Leave Talk Show
We reported earlier this week that Tyra Banks had quit her own daytime talk show to pursue other endeavors. According to The Hollywood Reporter the model wanted to work on her makeup collection instead.
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.
