Tyra Banks Ending Talk Show in 2010
After a successful 5-year run, Tyra Banks has announced that the Tyra Banks Show will come to an end in 2010.
“This will be the last season of The Tyra Show,” Banks tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.”
With encouragement from filmmaker Tyler Perry and mentor Oprah Winfrey, Tyra will now focus her attention on the launch of Bankable Studios, a N.Y.-based film production company currently reviewing possible projects. Says an industry insider, Tyra will be sticking to her mission to bring “positive images of women to the big screen."
“My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,” Banks says.
No worries for those looking to get their Tyra fix, America's Next Top Model returns in February along with Bank's ABC show True Beauty.
