Tyra Banks Announces End to Her Talk Show

by at . Comments

Note to Tyra Banks: if you're trying to dispel the notion that you wanna be the next Oprah Winfrey, you're going about it all wrong.

(Also, you really suck.)

Just like Winfrey did last month, Banks has announced the upcoming end of her talk show. She told People magazine today:

“This will be the last season of The Tyra Show. I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past five years.”

The self-serving gabfest - which Banks used as a vehicle to make a name for herself and draw attention to supposedly controversial issues such as vagina care - will come to an end in the fall of 2010.

After leaving the air, Banks will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, a New York-based movie production company. According to an insider, Banks wants to bring “positive images of women to the big screen.

In an open letter, Tyra wrote on her website:

“There’s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart. And I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.”

Will you miss Banks as a talk show host?
