Tyra Banks (@tyrabanks) Leaves Her New Talk Show, FABLife (@FABLifeShow)

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:

Bye, Bye Katniss! “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” Ends with a Twist!

The story we love, the characters we empathize with, and a girl armed with a bow and arrow that started a revolution are all back–one more time. Yep, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 has finally arrived, picking up right where Part 1 left off from, with Katniss recovering from injuries, literally from the hands of Peeta. The film shows Katniss as the Mockingjay, now more than ever before, she has become the face of the rebellion and the hope of the people. This time around Katniss must not only deal with President Snow and the forces of The Capital, but enemies within her own ranks, one of them being a brainwashed Peeta.

I have to admit this had to be one of the slower films out of the franchise. Perhaps this is why it opened at a franchise low, at 102 million dollars. That is still a hit in the box office, but many attribute it to blockbuster fatigue. Fans were simply ready for something new. Action may have also played a part. Whereas in the book there seemed to be non-stop action, this film began slow and did not pick up until over halfway in the film. However, when things did pick up the victors of the Hunger Games, Peeta, Finnick, and of course, Katniss, shined! The girl has moves that would make Green Arrow smile. Coincidentally there’s an homage to the DC superhero in the film. See if you can spot it. Still, this is the end of an era. Katniss proved that one girl can make all the difference in the face of tyranny. Still we wish we could have learned more about PanAm and the rest of the world. It just seems like Katniss’s heroic days should not be over. We wonder how the districts and capital of PanAm would do in an international war. Think about it. There has to be more to the world than just them. Be sure you catch the finale of Hunger Games in theaters nationwide!

You’ll Never See It Coming…”The Secret in Their Eyes!”

They say the best secrets are hidden in plain sight, especially when it comes to crimes of passion. Enter the world of the FBI and its fight against terrorism. We meet a tight knit group of agents who are determined to get the job done and seem quite good at it, until tragedy strikes one of their own, Jessica “Jess” Cobb’s (Julia Roberts) daughter, Carolyn, is raped and murdered by an FBI informant. Determined to get justice for Carolyn and revenge for her mother, Ray Caston, (Chiwetel Ejiofor) makes it his mission to bring her killer to justice even if it means going against the Bureau! The lengths, depths, and danger this agent goes through will make you question everything you think you know about this story.

Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor hey mikey atl

This has to be one of the best films I have seen in a long time. Although it builds up slowly, it soon takes us on an emotional roller coaster for the ages. You can definitely attribute the awesomeness of this film to its three main stars. Julia, Chiwetel, and Nicole Kidman (Claire) have amazing chemistry and energy. The way their characters play off each other truly blurs the lines between doing what is right and remaining loyal to a dear friend. Be sure you catch this amazing film in theaters everywhere TODAY!

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.

ALFRED ENOCH we how to get away with murder hey mikey atl

How To Get Away With Murder begins with Annalise lying on the floor in her own blood with a shot to the stomach. Flashing back Michaela calls Wes, Connor, and Laurel to show them the gun Caleb has found. They believe it belongs to Catherine, and tell them that she also knew Philip before her parents were murdered. Catherine learns of their discovery and leaves the house. The interns call Annalise for advice. When she arrives she admonishes them for tampering with the evidence and has Frank track down Catherine. She tells Caleb he must decide if either he or Catherine will remain her client, since representing them both now would be a conflict of interest. Meanwhile, Asher tries to call his father to check on him when the newspaper reports him covering up the gang rape. Emily continues her vendetta against Annalise through Nate, accusing him of altering Phillip’s profile to help Annalise so that she can murder more people like she did Nia. Nate becomes angry and yells at her, warning her to never speak of his wife again. He calls to tell Annalise he may be getting fired since Emily is filing a harassment suit against him, feeling she is no longer safe.

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!
