Tyra Banks opened up about why she walked away from her daytime talk show FABLife.
"I thought I could do my talk show and do my business," Banks admitted to ET. "It is impossible."
The 42-year-old former model-turned-host quit the daytime panel show she created just one month after announcing the end of America's Next Top Model.
The ANTM series finale airs Friday after 12 years and 22 cycles.
While Banks admitted that the end could be premature, it's a better option than overstaying your welcome.
"I tend to like to do things and leave when on top," she said.
Banks needed to clear a few things off her plate as she continues to grow her thriving TYRA Beauty cosmetics business, but she's not saying goodbye to television for good.
"Do you have any idea how many TV projects I've got in development, and we've sold already?" she said. "We're not going to stop doing TV. It's just not me having to be there the whole time."
In fact, Banks announced on Thursday that she will reprise her role as Eve in the Disney Channel original movie Life Size 2.
"There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much!" Banks told Variety
. "I'm just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve."
