[ # ] Tyra Banks does an Oprah with her talk show…and quits!!!
December 28th, 2009 under Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks is doing an Oprah Winfrey and quitting her talk show at the end of the season this spring!!! The talk show host told People, “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.” and she added what’s next for her, “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.” Tyra told them she wants to spend more time with her newly established film production company and their focus will be to bring more positive images of women on the big screen. Something she said Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey encouraged her to do. Hopefully they also encouraged her to hire all of the employees of the Tyra Banks Show, who will be out of work because of her decision to end her show, to work for her production company? But then again rumor has it she left a lot of her LA workers behind when she moved to NY.
Personally I never got the Tyra thing, whenever I tuned into her show it was all about her and not the guests. But as much as I don’t like her she has a huge following and I guess am not her target audience for it. It will be interesting to see if she can succeed as a movie producer because her reality show America’s Next Top Model keeps losing viewers by the thousands each season.
BTW as much as I won’t miss the show, I will miss some odd things she did for stunts like dressing as a homeless woman or having every woman on the show strip down to their bra and undies except herself. Will you miss her show when she signs off from it this spring?

UPDATE: Now I am wondering if she decided to quit her show because it would free her up to take over Oprah Winfrey’s time slot when she ends her show next year. Not that I think she would get it, but Tyra seems the type who would think she would be the next Oprah.
