According to Variety, Tyra Banks is leaving her own talk show “FABLife,” just two months after the daytime talker premiered. The host is departing the show to focus on her new cosmetics line. In a joint statement released toVariety, Banks and Disney/ABC say, “Tyra Banks has made the decision to scale back her role on the nationally syndicated lifestyle show ‘FABLife.'”
Banks will be on the show two to three times per week through the end of 2015, and will occasionally appear through the end of the season. She will also continue her exec producer duties for the remainder of the year. “This is a very difficult decision, but necessary,” Banks’ statement reads. “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.” In other Banks news, the longtime “America’s Next Top Model” host and producer recently announced that the longtime CW show will end after the current 22nd season.
