Tyra Banks Steps Away From Hosting ‘Dancing With The Stars’ To Focus On  Entrepreneurship, Working On New Business Show 

Tyra Banks went from being on our television screens to working behind the scenes.

According to reports, supermodel Tyra Banks thinks it’s time to call it quits from her hosting gig at “Dancing With The Stars,” to work on her dreams of being an entrepreneur. On Thursday (Mar. 16) interviewers spotted Tyra Banks walking out of Whole Foods in Santa Monica when she announced her decision to walk away from the dance competition television series to continue working hard on her ice cream business SMiZE & Dream, which had officially launched in the United Arab Emirates.

After showing off the ice cream and ingredients she bought from Whole Foods, the “America’s Next Top Model” star shared:

“We ‘bout to do some R&D, that’s research and development for United States expansion. So you’re gonna see us this year in Inglewood, up to no good, holla!”

Banks explained the vision behind her upcoming business ventures:

“I’m really focused on business like crazy, crazy, crazy focused on business. SMiZE & Dream is global, not just in the UAE but in many other countries that you’ll see. So I feel it’s time for me to really focus on my business and my entrepreneurship, and also producing more t.v. but behind the scenes.”

She admitted:

“I think it’s time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market floor.”

Banks announced that she “think’s it’s time” to walk away from her hosting gig. The 49-year-old disclaimed:

“I’m an entrepreneur at heart.” 

She elaborated:

“I think my heart, my soul is into my business. It’s also into producing new t.v. which we’re working on. We got a new business show coming soon holla! I really really wanna focus on my business and you can’t do that hosting a show.”

The producer said:

“You’ll see me creating things, not just hosting things.”

She joked:

“From the ballroom to the boardroom baby!”

This may be the best move for Banks after viewers confessed to being tired of seeing her host the show. As previously reported, “Dancing With The Stars” viewers took to Twitter declaring that they want the model to be replaced with another host who wont slip-up, mispronounce names, have awkward exchanges, or steal the show. An insider for the series said:

“People have had enough — including the judges, who are often her scapegoat when she messes up.” 

She was initially given an ultimatum which was to co-host season 31 of “Dancing with the Stars” with Alfonso Ribeiro or be jobless. The insider with behind-the-scenes knowledge added:

 “Her gaffes are embarrassing, and she doesn’t seem to show remorse for getting names mixed up.”
