Tyra Banks’ daytime talk show FABLife just debuted a few months ago. Now, Deadline is reporting Banks is “scaling back” her commitment to the syndicated series.
Banks said leaving FABLife “is a very difficult decision, but necessary.” She’ll apparently appear on the show “2-3 times a week through the end of the year.”
Here’s the joint statement from Disney/ABC and Banks about her departure:
Tyra Banks has made the decision to scale back her role on the show beginning later this month and she will be appearing less frequently as part of the FABLife cast. Tyra will be devoting more time to her new, growing cosmetics company, TYRA Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing her company’s other entertainment ventures.
Tyra remains committed to the growth and success of FABLife and has expressed her sincere thanks for the support our station partners have given the show.
Fortunately, one of FABLife’s greatest strengths is its diverse and strong panel of lifestyle hosts, which include Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Leah Ashley and Lauren Makk. We will continue our goal to refine and grow FABLife, with the goal of making it a daily destination for all things Food, Fashion, Home, Beauty, DIY and Fun.
This is the second time Banks has explored the talk show circuit. She hosted The Tyra Banks Show for five years before it ended in 2010.
What do you think? Do you watch FABLife? Are you sad to see Tyra go?
