Banks says she's leaving the show to focus on her new cosmetics line

Tyra Banks is waving goodbye to her daytime talk show "FABLife" just two months after the show premiered.

The host announced the news Friday, explaining that she would use the time to focus on her new cosmetics line, TYRA Beauty. Banks will continue to appear on the show two to three times per week through the end of 2015 and will occasionally appear through the end of the season.

She will also continue as executive producer through the remainder of the year.



"This is a very difficult decision, but necessary," Banks said in a statement. "I will be devoting more time to my new, growing cosmetics company, TYRA Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing my company's other entertainment ventures. I will however continue to support the growth and success of 'FABLife' and greatly admire my fellow co-hosts and the talented production team behind the show."

Co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Lauren Makk and Leah Ashley will remain with the show. Sources say there are no plans to replace Banks at this time.

Banks' departure follows behind news of "America's Next Top Model" ending after 22 seasons. The final episode will air Dec. 4.
