Tyra Banks Quits Her Own Daytime Show After Two Months (Exclusive).

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. 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. She also said in her statement, “This is a very difficult decision, but necessary.” Sources are telling TMZ her departure from the show was not amicable.

Banks will remain as executive producer through December. ‘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. 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. 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. Tyra doesn’t play well with others.’ The insider added that producers are considering putting the show on hiatus until after the New Years, however all remains up in the air at the moment.

Banks said she especially liked the idea of sharing hosting duties with several other people — a format that has become increasingly common in daytime following The View and more recently The Talk and The Real. “[Lisa] knew that I did not want to do it by myself,” Banks said in August. Daytime talk shows led by a single celebrity have been on the decline in recent years due to the low viewership for Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper’s short-lived talk shows.
