Banks revealed in a statement on Friday that she was leaving the talk show she created to focus on her makeup line.

“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.”

She said the decision to leave was, ultimately, “very difficult.”

But sources are reporting that the show just wasn’t working out how Banks had hoped.

An insider told People that Banks “was disappointed with the direction that the producers were taking. It wasn’t right for her. She hopes it will be successful for the other cast members but she has to move on.”

The show just premiered two months ago on ABC, but unfortunately, sinking ratings kept it from being the talk-show success Banks is used to with her past hit talk-show series The Tyra Banks Show and her current reality competition show America’s Next Top Model, which is in its 22nd season.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that she will be scaling back her FABLife appearances on the program to two or three days throughout the rest of 2015, with occasional appearances planned into the spring season.

What do you think is the real reason behind Banks’ FABLife departure?
