Tyra is leaving her show, The Tyra Show at the end of her 5th season. I thought she wanted to be a talk show queen like her idol, Oprah. But maybe she wants to be too much like Oprah since Oprah did announce her departure from her showâ€¦ummmm sounds like a copycat to me!
â€œThis will be the last season of The Tyra Show,â€ Banks tells PEOPLE exclusively. â€œIâ€™ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.
â€œMy next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are,â€ Banks says.
Adds the insider: â€œTyra is sad because sheâ€™ll be missing so much of the daily connection to her viewers, but excited at the same time to be taking on a new challenge.â€
â€œThereâ€™s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart,â€ Banks writes in an open letter on her Web site. â€œAnd I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.â€
