Tyra Banks quits “FABLife”
Less than three months after launching her syndicated daytime show, “FABLife,” Tyra Banks is ripping the runway out the door.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
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. She will continue to appear on the show a few times a week through December and will make occasional appearances on the show throughout the season.
“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.
The scoop on the street is Tyra was beefing with one of the executive producers on the show and she was also disappointed with the lack of promotion for her cosmetic line.
Tyra Banks doesn’t mind letting go and letting God.
In October, Tyra announced she was pulling the plug on “America’s Next Top Model” after cycle 22.
She’s definitely a mover and shaker and I wish Ms. Tyra the best.
