Tyra Banks is calling it quits. But don’t worry, she’s still going to be workingÂ on a million and a half projects – Â just not The Tyra Show anymore. Tyra has succeeded in her goal of empowering women and keeping it realÂ for the past five years, so why is she ending the show?
Tyra told PEOPLE, â€œThis will be the last season of The Tyra Show. Iâ€™ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.â€ â€œMy next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,â€Â she continued.Â So what is her next step?
Tyra is focusing on launching Bankable Studios, a production company that will work to bring more positive images of womenÂ to the big screen. Is Tyra trying to take her makover skills to Hollywood?
According to an insider, Tyra is ready for a change. â€œTyra is sad because sheâ€™ll be missing so much of the daily connection to her viewers, but excited at the same time to be taking on a new challenge,” said the source.
