Model Tyra Banks To Call It Quits

Talk show host Tyra Banks says she is ready to end her Emmy-award winning “Tyra Show,” according to a report from People magazine. The former supermodel and mogul tells People she will be focusing on her longtime dream of producing movies. “This will be the last season of ‘The Tyra Show,’” Banks said. “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.” An insider tells People that her production company, Bankable Studios, will focus on bringing “positive images of women to the big screen.” “My next huge step allows me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,” Banks said.

  1. YEAH RIGHT SHE KNOW SHE GOT RAN OUT BY WENDY WILLIAMS …. I DONT EVEN CARE FOR TYRA SHE TO FAKE AND WORRIES TO MUCH WHAT WHITE PPL THINK ABOUT HER SO IM GLAD SHE LEAVING

  2. No Oprah now no Tyra? No more black women talk show hosts?! What?! And Wendy Williams does not count.

  3. I can totally back a sista wanting to put more of our stories on the big screen. I had just started to get into her show , but Tyra’s gonna be alright. Wendy is probably jumping for joy right about now: 1st Oprah and now Tyra. Monique doesn’t count since her show is on at night, and frankly if she wins an Oscar who’s to say she’s gonna wanna do a nightly chatfest.

  4. This might be for the best. More avenues. Like you ladies have said, there’s Wendy to fill the shoes and Mo’Nique…………..

  5. I enjoyed watching tyra’s show her and Oprah topics of dicussion were more relatible then some of the rest of these talk shows out now…”Wendy Williams” Is so boring now I mean who really gives a crap about her ”hot topics” and the guests on her show are wiggady-wack no Wendy I don’t wanna know ”HOW U DOIN” any more…as for ”Monique” I like the guest she has on her show and when they perform but after a while I get tired of hearing…”yesssssss baaaaabies” ”heyyyyyy suga’s ”ohhhhhhh baaaaaaby” sound like she having a orgasm lol

  6. Good riddens! She is a mess and her interview skills are greatly lacking. With Oprah gone, she doesn’t have anyone to imitate. So, she may as well sit down somewhere and shut her mouth.

  7. Tyra’s not stepping down, she quit before she got the boot because of declining ratings..Her show has been slipping for a while that’s why she got moved to the CW Network..I personally didn’t care for her show she always came off to me like she was trying too hard.

  8. I really liked Tyra, she is a role model and dont feel like she is trying to be anyone other than the person her mother raised. Wendy is fun to watch for laughs and she really gives good advice but I dont take it seriously. Most of her hot topics are about a bunch (white) people I could care less about. The kardashians for one

  9. Word has it that her staff found out about this on the internet, and not via official interoffice memo. Tyra is notorious for this! She picked up and moved her show from LA to NY on a moment’s notice, also leaving a trail of employee disenchantment.

    Is this how she shows her appreciation to the employees who DID have to move to accommodate her whims, AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE, mind you? Let’s not forget last Xmas when she doled out Mickey D’s at her her staff holiday party.

    Furthermore, she fired her writers on ANTM a few years back when they threatened to strike for set wages, benefits and pensions.

    This chick might be prolific, but please read the media trades and get the real picture.

    Do not buy her hype!

  10. She needs to all cancel America’s Next Top Model…I am not feeling her too much.

  11. PLEASE! Because of her dealing with the CW, they’re allowing her to save face. The show’s rating have been crap for at least 2 seasnons now and was not going to be renewed. Why do you think Fox affiliate bailed and picked up Wendy?

    I USED TO LIKE THIS WOMAN BUT SHE IS FAKE, EVEN BY SHIW BIZ STANDARDS!

  12. Oh well. I started hating her show for some time now. No substance at all. and same topics over and over

    But I do appreciate the fact that she talked about topics that other shows never covered & never would. So she gets props! peace sista!
