*Tyra Banks left the “FabLife“ after speculation that she didn’t get along with co-host Chrissy Teigen. Both stars denied the claim, with Tyra issuing a statement about departing the show so she could concentrate on her beauty business ventures.
Life in the fab lane continues to move on without Tyra, as TMZ reports that the “FABLife” has several replacements in mind to fill Tyra’s shoes, including Naomi Campbell, E! News vet Giuliana Rancic and KeKe Palmer, who had her own short-lived BET talk show titled “Just KeKe.”
Industry insiders believe Campbell was named to guest host so soon after Banks’ departure as “revenge move on Tyra for ditching the talk show just two months in.”
Other celebs who are gunning for the host spot are Heidi Klum, Christina Milian, Sherri Shepherd, Rocco DiSpirito and Tori Spelling.
As of now, there’s no frontrunner and Chrissy Teigen and the rest of the FAB panelists continue to hold the ratings by welcoming celebrity guests and offering content to “motivate the audience to make their lives more fun and beautiful.”
Banks explained to USA Today why she made the “difficult decision” to leave the daytime talk show, saying that the FABLife “competed for my time in a way that you cannot run a business and do a daytime talk show. And I thought I could. And I can’t,” she said.
She also gave the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter:
“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.”
