Tyra Banks Gives Up Her Talk Show

The Tyra Show is finally going out of business, because the former model says she would like to focus on other projects, such as producing films.

The show was set in New York, and Tyra (well, mostly her helpers) would wander the streets of Manhattan, asking women questions about makeup, their sex lives, and other personal things.

I don’t think too many people are really disappointed that the show is over…. there are only so many “shocking” topics Tyra could come up with, and anyway, her one look is getting old.

This is the fifth season the show is running, and will be wrapping up next spring. The show has won 2 Daytime Emmy awards in the past, but has been dropping in ratings recently.

People Magazine is reporting that “Banks will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, a N.Y.-based film production company currently reviewing possible projects. Sticking to her mission, Banks aims to bring ‘positive images of women to the big screen,’ says an industry insider.”

“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 adds to this statement.

The insider also said: “Tyra is sad because she’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.”

Unfortunately, Tyra’s other show, America’s Next Top Model will be coming back once again for its 14th season.

Tyra’s supposed mentor, Oprah, has also recently announced that her show will be ending soon as well, in 2011.

“There’s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart,” Banks writes in an open letter on her Web site. “And I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.”
