For the first time in a long time, our televisions will be absent of a Tyra Banks vehicle. Weeks after the news that the Banks-helmed reality competition America’s Next Top Model will end this year, the model turned media mogul also announced Friday that she’s leaving her ABC daytime talk show FABLife.

Banks, who created the show and led its panel, said in a statement that she is leaving FABLife in order to focus more on her cosmetics company TYRA Beauty, which she says “is expanding faster than anticipated.” Though departing immediately as a personality, Banks will remain as an executive producer for the show through December.

FABLife premiered just two months ago in mid-September, and Banks previously enjoyed years of success in the daytime talk format on The Tyra Banks Show. Currently, there are no plans to replace Banks, which puts the show in the hands of her co-panelists: model Chrissy Teigen, fashion editor Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk, and DIY YouTuber Leah Ashley.

Banks is still in ABC and Disney’s good graces, though. She will appear on an upcoming episode of Black-ish and is working on a sequel to her Disney movie Life-Size.
