Tyra Banks Says She’s Leaving ‘Dancing With the Stars’: ‘It’s Time’

Tyra Banks has revealed she is leaving “Dancing With the Stars.”

In a March 17, 2022 interview posted by TMZ, Banks, 49, was caught outside of a Whole Foods store and asked about her Smize ice cream business – but she dropped a much bigger bombshell regarding her role on the celebrity ballroom competition.

“I feel like it’s really time for me to focus on my business and on my entrepreneurship,” Banks said. “And producing more TV, but behind the scenes. I think it’s time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market. Mic drop.”

When asked if she is stepping away from DWTS, Banks replied, ”I think it’s time. …I’m an entrepreneur at heart. My heart, my soul is my business,” she said, adding that she is also working on “producing new TV.”

“I really, really want to focus on my business,  and you can’t do that hosting a show,” Banks said. “So you’ll see me creating things, not just hosting. ”

“From the ballroom to the boardroom, baby!” she added.

Banks has been the host of “Dancing With the Stars” since 2020, when she replaced longtime host Tom Bergeron and co-host Erin Andrews.

Heavy has reached out to Banks’ rep for comment. DisneyPlus has not yet confirmed Banks’ exit from “Dancing With the Stars.”
