Tyra Banks Leaving Her Own Talk Show ‘FABLife’ to Focus on Cosmetics Line.

The 41-year-old “America’s Next Top Model” host is leaving the talk show, that started in September, to focus on her cosmetic line, reported Us magazine. “This is a very difficult decision, but necessary.

Original billed as “chief stylist” on the show, which also features four other co-hosts, Banks has made the decision to reduce her role, the show’s publicist said on Friday.“I’ve made an executive decision to keep following my heart and spend more time focusing on my army of entrepreneurs, my Beautytainers, so we can bring the power of transformation to people everywhere,” she said in a post on her public Facebook page. The model and beauty mogul will appear on the syndicated daytime show two to three times per week through the end of this year, and then “occasionally” through the balance of the season, according to the publicist.

The Hollywood Reporter reported she’ll remain as executive producer through next month and will join her colleagues – Chrissy Teigen, fashion editor Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk and YouTube star Leah Ashley – in occasional guest visits. Weeks after the news that the Banks-helmed reality competition America’s Next Top Model will end this year, the model turned media mogul also announced Friday that she’s leaving her ABC daytime talk show FABLife.

FABLife premiered just two months ago in mid-September, and Banks previously enjoyed years of success in the daytime talk format on The Tyra Banks Show. Insiders say there are no plans to replace Banks, but as Teigen has served as the lead “lifestylist” in Banks’ absence, it seems likely she will take on more of a moderator role. Before “FABLife” premiered, Banks, who hosted six seasons of “The Tyra Banks Show” from 2005 and 2010, told Variety, “I’m interested in things that are not the same. If you’ve seen it in daytime before, it won’t be on our show.” As Banks departs the show, she still maintains her relationship with Disney/ABC, as she is developing a sequel to Disney Channel’s Original Movie “Life Size” for the cabler.
