Are you ready for Tyra and the gang to brighten up your day? We chatted with the new host of ‘FabLife’ before the Sept. 14 premiere to find out what we can be look forward to on the new show — and namely, it’s a party!
“It’s almost like a party every day,” Tyra Banks told HollywoodLife.com exclusively about her new ABC talk show, FABLife. Tyra will be joined by foodie and model, Chrissy Teigen, fashion expert Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk and DIY enthusiast Leah Ashley.
“It’s like a visual and auditory candy show,” Tyra told us. “The information that you’re gonna get will make your life more fun and beautiful. It’s not just tell-it-to you straight. We’re going to be having a party while you’re learning.” Read the full Q&A below.
HollywoodLife: Will there be celebrity guests?
Tyra: We will but the show isn’t relying on that. We have so much information and fun, we’re not relying on celebrity — but we do want them to come! And when they do come, we want them to play with us and all of our expertise.
What’s the chemistry like with the panel?
We’re were talking so much — there’s so much energy. There’s just a natural chemistry. It feels so good to have that. I’m not feeling like I have to tell someone, ‘You’re not talking enough, you need to speak up.’
Why did you want to do the show now?
I really miss connecting on women on a daily basis. I’ve had my nose to the business with my cosmetics company, going back to school, and then I was ready to come out of the bunker. I feel like this is a gift of mine, to be able to be myself on television.
What are you looking forward to most on the show?
Helping women start businesses and being entrepreneurs, helping people with goal setting and confidence, and giving tips and tricks on how to do that.
