    Supermodel Tyra Banks parts ways with Dance with the Stars

    American actress and businesswoman Tyra Banks is leaving the television show, Dancing with the Stars.

    The 49-year-old well-known supermodel has announced her departure from the Disney+ dancing competition series after three seasons as a host.

    “I feel it’s really time for me to focus on my business and my entrepreneurship, and also producing more TV — but behind the scenes,” Banks said in an interview with TMZ per PEOPLE.

    “I think it’s time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market floor. … from the ballroom to the boardroom!

    “Don’t you think it’s time? Yeah, I think it’s time. I’m an entrepreneur at heart….I think my heart, my soul, is into my business, it’s also into producing new TV. …But, I really, really want to focus on my business, and you can’t do that hosting a show.”

    It is mentioned that representatives for both Banks and DWTS were not available to give more details about the news that surfaced on Thursday.

    The former Soul Food actress, joined DWTS as a host during the show’s season 29 in 2020, replacing Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.

    “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning…The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances …it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk,” said Banks.

    Meanwhile, E! News also published that after facing criticism about her hosting skills on the series, Tyra proved that she was once again on top, telling TikTok users in a September 2020 video, “Forgive yourself when you mess up and keep going.”
