Well, I guess it’s just Tyra and Kelly Cutrone…
It seems as if everyone on “America’s Next Top Model” has gotten the ax. Co-stars J. Alexander, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker were all fired yesterday, dismissing three of the competition’s longest-running personalities in one fell swoop. Sources told Page Six that the three mentors were informed yesterday morning that their contracts would not be renewed for the next season. Rumor has it that the show may be trying to snag younger fashion personalities. as well as looking to add a social media slant to the show. It seems they’ve already reached out to bloggers and fashion insiders with a strong Web presence, including street-style blogger Bryan Boy.
Executive producer Ken Mok said in a statement: “Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander have been an integral part of the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ brand and they helped turn this show into the household name it is today. They have been amazing assets to the show and will always be a part of the ‘Top Model’ family. We will continue to actively work with each of them on future projects.”
