Tyra Banks To Launch ‘The View’ Style TV Show / Set To Compete With Tamar Braxton’s ‘The Real’

Published: Friday 29th Aug 2014 by David


‘America’s Next Top Model’ mastermind Tyra Banks has set her sights on ‘The View‘-sized ground this year, shooting a pilot for a TV show named ‘The Fab’ alongside Nicole Ritchie and fellow model Chrissy Teigen.

Set to go head to head with the Tamar Braxton led ‘The Real’, Philly.Com said of Tyra’s ‘Fab’:

The two models and reality TV star Richie have teamed up to launch The Fab, which will cover celebrity news, current events and lifestyle topics, according to OK! magazine.

Teigen, Richie and Banks shot the pilot for the show last week  and they are hoping to premiere it in the near future. A source tells the publication, “Chrissy, Tyra and Nicole are all very witty and have no trouble expressing themselves. Plus, they’re honest and willing to talk about their own real-life problems – and fans can relate to that.” All three have had experience hosting U.S. TV shows – Banks fronted her own talk and lifestyle show, Tyra, and oversees America’s Next Top Model; Richie featured on The Simple Life and Fashion Star and currently stars in Candidly Nicole, and John Legend’s wife Teigen hosts and judges TV series Snack Off!


Tyra‘s return to daytime TV will follow the launch of ‘Top Models’ 21st cycle, and as Braxton’s ‘Real’ gears up to return to US screens on September 15th!

    Maybe Tamar can buy some views like she does for her albums.

    NONE of these shows can beat The View because The View is intelligent, they talk about a wide range of issues and can have serious political debates, not just discussions on how to make up fatty food that will keep your husbands happy.

    IDK, Tyra knows how to hit those tough subjects. Let’s not forget that her show made the lane for shows like Wendy Williams.

    • Stephy. August 29, 2014

      The F***??? Umm Oprah says HI

    • FutureCIARA August 29, 2014

      B**** sorry, Wendy made her own lane.

      Oprah taught them all!

  7. Beysus August 29, 2014

    • Beysus August 29, 2014

    Tyra is such a wannabe.
    She neds to try to complete with The View & Talk. The Real will be fine.

  9. FAF August 29, 2014

    Well the real is on BET so a lot of ppl won’t watch for that reason

  10. MISHKA August 29, 2014

    About time Sassy Teigen made it to TV! And good to see Tyra coming back. Not sure about Nicole Ritchie, I used to love her during her crazy days though.

    Sorry for The Real but pretty models who can articulate and make sense always win.

    Where’s Smelly Flopland? SMELLY???? SMELLY? ….. WHERE IN THE WORLD IS SMELLY FLOPLAND?!?!?!?!

  12. MISHKA August 29, 2014

    Tyra please get Kenya Moore on board as well!!!

  13. musicMatters101 August 29, 2014

    Just because Tyra Banks is black does not mean this will appeal to a black audience and be a competitor of The Real.

    On a second note, Tyra really should have went for the solo talk show reboot, and tried to become the next Oprah type talk show host. Fun and serious at the same time. That would work longer than this Chrissy/Nicole idea IMO. Ppl like Tyra A LOT more than Nicole or Chrissy.

  14. Tyred Banks August 29, 2014

    She need to sit her old sell-out self down

  15. yasssssssssss B**** September 1, 2014
