Model-turned-mogul Tyra Banks is leaving syndicated daytime show FABLife after about two months, saying that she wants to focus on building her cosmetics line, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

There are currently no plans to replace Banks on the show, which is produced by Disney/ABC, notes the report. But a roster of big name co-hosts and contributors are slated to work in her place, including Chrissy Teigen, fashion editor Joe Zee and interior designer Lauren Makk.


Meanwhile, Banks will continue to pop up on the show a few times a week through December and will make occasional appearances on the show throughout the season, the news site reports.

“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,” Banks said in a statement. “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.”

FABLife represented Banks’ return to daytime television after the Emmy Award-winning The Tyra Banks Show went off the air in 2010 after five seasons.

This summer, Banks said she had not expected to return to television, noting that “her life had become too hectic with [The Tyra Banks Show] and America’s Next Top Model running concurrently.”


Good luck with it all, Tyra!
