Tyra Banks, who just became a first-time mom, is already making her way back onto our TV screens.

Just one week after Disney-ABC Domestic Television announced that the 42-year-old model's FABLife lifestyle talk show was canceled, NBC revealed on Thursday that Banks will be joining The Celebrity Apprentice.

Joining Banks as advisors are actress Jessica Alba, founder of the Honest Company; Steve Ballmer, former Microsoft CEO and owner of the Los Angeles Clippers; Warren Buffet, an investment guru known as "one of the most successful businessmen in the world" and Schwarzenegger's son, Patrick Schwarzenegger, an entertainment attorney.

NEWS: 'FABLife' Canceled Following Tyra Banks' Mid-Season Departure

As ET previously reported, Banks quit FABLife in November, just two months after it premiered. She previously hosted The Tyra Banks Show on the CW for five seasons and America's Next Top Model on the same network, which ended last December after 22 cycles.

ET caught up with Banks in December, where she revealed she had other TV projects in the works. "I thought I could do my talk show and do my business. It is impossible," she explained, later adding, "Do you have any idea how many TV projects I've got in development, and we've sold already? We're not going to stop doing TV. It's just not me having to be there the whole time."
