    This is nothing to smize about.

    Model-turned-talk show guru Tyra Banks said she is quitting her Emmy-award winning daytime gig after five seasons of memorable TV moments that included the ex-Victoria's Secret Angel donning a fat suit, dressing as a man and wearing no makeup, according to People.com.

    "This will be the last season of 'The Tyra Show,'" Banks told People.com. "I've been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past five years."

    The final episode of the talk show will air in the spring of 2010.

    Banks said she'll focus on the launch of her New York-based film production company Bankable Studios in an effort to bring "positive images of women to the big screen," an insider told People.com

    "My next huge steps will allow me to reach more women and young girls to help us all feel as fierce as we truly are," Tyra told the mag.
