Sometimes when it’s time to go and move on to better things, you just have to say bye and that looks to be exactly what Tyra Banks is doing.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tyra will be leaving her new daytime talk show The FABLife to focus on her cosmetics lin, TYRA Beauty:

This is a very difficult decision, but necessary. 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.


Reportedly, Banks will remain as executive producer throughout the month of December. There are no plans to date, for a replacement and co-hosts and contributors – including Chrissy Teigen, fashion editor Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk and YouTube star Leah Ashley will stay on.

Tyra also posted the following on Instagram:

The Stars Unite in “Shining A Light” Concert Against Racism!

shining a light concert hey mikey atl

Celebrities are all too often silent when it comes social issues. Many of them do not want their brands or reputations sullied by causes that the mainstream is not particularly supportive of. Well a few celebrities lifted their voices in protest against the racism and brutality many Americans, mostly those of color, have been facing. You know the victims of the hatred; Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, The Charleston 9, and Walter L. Scott, and the many others whose names we may never know. The concert, Shining A Light, not only brings awareness to the problem of racism in America, but will raise money for organizations and individuals committed to the fight against it.

Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan)–and His Oiled Up Pecs–Team Up For “Creed” and The Cover of Men’s Fitness Magazine (@MensFitness)!


Let’s face it, the Turkey Day holiday season will be dominated by two big films, the final installment of The Hunger Games and CreedThe hype and anticipation over the latter film is not just because it is the latest Rocky Franchise film, but because of Michael B. Jordan and that oh so buff body of his! Jordan released this promo picture oiled up, chest out and has the masses going gaga! The sheer amount of muscle he has put on for this role has definitely earned our attention and him on the cover of the latest issue of Men’s Fitness Magazine. Now Michael has never been out of shape or toned, but this later transformation in his physique for the role of Adonis Johnson, son of the late and great Apollo Creed, is of super-heroic proportions! (No shade on the Fantastic Four flop!)

The question all of us (especially me) are asking is what did he do to get so buff? Hopefully his feature in the magazine will reveal his regimen. These Hollywood transformations are akin to magic, but hey if you got the time and the money you can make just about anything happen. Creed premieres Thursday, November 25th. Let’s make sure we support the film. After all just about anything with the stud pictured above in it will be nothing short of amazing!

His Eyes, Those Abs, & That Smile–Meet James Lee Taylor (@jammyleetaylor)!

BET knew it had a hit when it first premiered Being Mary Jane. The show was met with critical acclaim, as it portrayed the life of a single and successful middle-aged Black woman as she struggled to balance her personal, professional, and romantic life. Over the past two seasons and part of this season we watched Mary Jane Paul (MJ) deal with some hot, but less than stellar guys. First we had Andre the married man she was having an affair with, then she was on and off again with David her ex and still possibly the love of her life, then there was Sheldon—witty, intelligent, charming—and juxtaposed with a fear of commitment and cohabitation. Now, in the third and latest season it looks like MJ is ready for someone new, but nonetheless just as hot as her past love interests—meet MJ’s “Gorgeous Guy,” James Lee Taylor!

James hails from the across the Atlantic in merry ol’ London. His love affair with acting began after seeing his father on stage doing standup. From there, he decided he wanted to spend his life on the stage, acting in front of others. “I love acting…you get to be someone else for a little while…the experiences you have and the part you have in the story that is being told I feel is amazing.” Over the years he has perfected his craft and become a rising star that also gets a rise out of the ladies! Just check out his pictures. With those eyes, abs, and smile it is no wonder MJ will fall for his character, Eddie. “ He [Eddie] spots her [Mary Jane] at a club, then the second time he talks to her and they end up making out…that was actually my first time meeting her [Gabrielle Union]…it was like ‘hi I’m James and she introduced herself and we went at it [he laughs]…she’s a great kisser!” James definitely feeling more than his role of “Eddie,” admitting he loved filming in Atlanta too. “The city is beautiful and I really enjoyed the warmer weather,  but I spent most of my time in the hotel when I wasn’t filming…the cast is really nice, especially Lisa [Vidal]…she didn’t know who I was until I walked up to her at a bar and was like ‘Hi, I’m Gorgeous Guy!”

Bills, Bills, Bills! Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) Sued by Private Jet Company!

Another day and another celebrity being put on front street for not paying their bills. Now we expect these types of shenanigans from D-Lister reality stars like, Nikko London, but from the “prestigious” Mr. Harvey this is surprising and unheard of. Yep, you read right, Steve Harvey is being sued by Business Aircraft Leasing, a private jet company, for nonpayment on on one of their jets he supposedly tricked out. The company made the modifications and AFTER doing so, Steve backed out of the deal. It is no surprise they are suing him for a whopping $205K!

TMZ reports:

Business Aircraft Leasing claims the “Family Feud” star made a deal back in April to lease a Gulfstream G-IVSP S/N 1289. But standard features weren’t enough, according to the company … Steve wanted the interior modified to the tune of more than $400k … of which he’d pay half, according to the company.

As for what Steve wanted … custom carpet, a reconfiguration of the interior cabin from 16 seats to 14 seats, custom seat design and new upper and lower cabin sidewalls. The company says all the modifications were made in reliance of the contract. 

Short story … Steve allegedly had a change of heart, never leased the jet and the company is on the hook for the improvements.

The jet company wants $205k minimum.

This is not a good look. Think like a man Steve and pay your bills!
