Tyra Banks Quits Talk Show ‘FABLife’

In: Donovan, TV Shows
tyra-banks-leaving-fablife

For her first talk show, The Tyra Banks Show, it ran for five seasons and won a couple of Daytime Emmys. Second time around hasn’t proved as successful.

Just two months on the air, Tyra Banks has decided to leave her new talk show FABLife. Can’t say that I’m all that surprised. Reviews for the show have been awful.

“This is a very difficult decision, but necessary,” Tyra said in a statement to THR. “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.”

Banks will remain on the show behind-the-scenes as an executive producer until the end of December. IMHO, Tyra stepping down is just a preemptive move before the show gets officially yanked. This reeks of saving face. What do you think? Weigh in below.

On the heels of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announcing Denzel Washington as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award of the 73rd Golden Globes, comes news regarding the awards show’s other annual tradition. Jamie Foxx’s daugther, Corinne Foxx, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2016. The title is traditionally given to the daughter or son of a celebrity, and their responsibility is to assist in handing out the awards on the big night.

“We are delighted to have Corinne Foxx continue the tradition and have her as our 2016 Miss Golden Globe,” said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. “Like her father, she leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can’t wait to see what she does next.”

Foxx joins a long list of women who’ve held Miss Golden Globe honors including Linda Evans, Melanie Griffith, Anne Archer, Laura Dern and Rumer Willis. Kelsey Grammer’s daugther Greer Grammer scored the honor last year. A few men over the years have also scored the gig. Clark Gable’s son John Clark Gable, Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Freddie Prinze) and A.J. Lamas (Lorenzo Lamas) have been Mr. Golden Globes.

Meet Corinne below. Thankfully, she doesn’t look like her father in drag. Remember Foxx’s In Living Color alter ego, Wanda? No bueno.

After serving up laughs three consecutive years in a row at The Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are handing off hosting duties to Ricky Gervais. Thankfully, the dynamic duo aren’t depriving their fans completely of their signature brand of comedy. The ladies are returning to their former stomping grounds this December.

NBC just revealed Fey and Poehler will co-host Saturday Night Live on December 19. Bruce Springsteen will join them that evening as the musical guest. Since leaving the show, Fey has hosted four times with Poehler headlining the show only once since her departure.

Find out below who else is stopping by next month. It’s a one-two punch of handsome hotness.

The Pfeffermans are back and just in time for the holidays.

Amazon premieres the second season of its Emmy-winning series Transparent on December 11. The streaming service also announced Angelica Huston and Cherry Jones have booked guest spots on the show. No details about their respective roles were released. They join a guest roster that already includes Kathryn Hahn, Tig Notaro and Carrie Brownstein.

A newly-dropped teaser features everyone posing for a family picture. Naturally, things are chaotic trying to corral everyone at the wedding. However, it’s when the photographer calls Maura/Morton (Jeffrey Tambor) a certain three-letter word when things go wrong. Watch below to find out what he says.

The live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid still doesn’t have a director, but it finally secured its leading lady. Chloe Moretz announced via Twitter that she’s playing the titular character in Universal’s highly-anticipated remake.

“Been waiting a long time to tell you guys !! #TheLittleMermaid going to be a beautiful experience! Can’t wait to show everyone my Mermaid!” – Moretz via Twitter

Sofia Coppola was supposed to direct the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale but exited the project over creative differences. Universal’s take on the mermaid who gives up her life in the sea after falling in love with a prince will be decidedly darker than Disney’s animated film.

Do you think Moretz is the perfect choice to take on this part? Excited for a darker and edgier Little Mermaid? Weigh in below.

amy-winehouse-biopic

With her meteoric rise and untimely death, the tragic life of Amy Winehouse is ripe for a biopic. After watching the moving documentary, Amy, (love the movie) about the “Rehab” singer, I’m intrigued to see how filmmakers will sensationalize the already sensational life of the 27 Club member.

Director Kirsten Sheridan will direct the yet-untitled project off a script she wrote. She’s best known for earning an Oscar nomination for the semi-autobiographical film In America which she co-wrote with her father and sister. The 39-year-old Irish screenwriter-director recently said the following about the upcoming film.

“Amy’s music is felt so deeply by the audience because it was deeply personal. Her vulnerability was her strength. She was called many things — a diva, a lost soul preyed upon by tabloids, a tortured genius; our aim is an innovative, emotional and life-affirming approach as we go through the looking glass into her life and art.” – Kirsten Sheridan

Rihanna was set to headline the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but it appears that’s not the case anymore. The lingerie brand announced that Ellie Goulding is in and RiRi is out. The “On My Mind” singer will join previously announced performers The Weeknd and Selena Gomez.

People‘s sources reveal Rihanna canceled her appearance to finish up her album. Ummmm, I’m sorry but that sounds like major BS. So far, the “Bitch Better Have My Money” singer’s forthcoming eighth studio album has been a hot mess. That’s what you get when you enlist Kanye West to executive produce your project.

If that’s the true reason why Rihanna canceled, it’s just rude. The annual extravaganza tapes in New York next week. Producers must’ve been frantic trying to find a replacement. Thankfully they did. Goulding will slay it. Too bad producers didn’t have more time. They probably would’ve incorporated a bondage theme if Ellie sang her Fifty Shades of Grey track, “Love Me Like You Do.”

What do you think of this last minute change? Weigh in below.

It’s Morphin’ Time!!! At least for Becky G. née Gomez it is. On the heels of her Empire guest arc, the 18-year-old has been cast as the Yellow Ranger for the upcoming Power Rangers movie.

With her recording career kinda stalling, it’s wise for Becky G to explore other avenues in the entertainment industry. Still though, I have hope she’ll score a hit song soon.

The Dean Israelite-directed film begins production early 2016 and set to attack theaters in 2017. Check below to see the actors playing the other Power Rangers. The red one is kinda cute 😉
