Andre Leon Talley Won't Return To "Top Model"
Andre Leon Talley won't be returning for another round of "dreckitude" on "America's Next Top Model," The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Wednesday.
Instead, he'll be replaced in Cycle 18 by Kelly Cutrone, 45, the PR guru and star of reality shows "The City" and Bravo's "Kell on Earth."
Talley, 61, has been a judge for the Tyra Banks-hosted CW show's last three cycles and is a longtime contributing editor to Vogue magazine.
"We have greatly enjoyed working with André Leon Talley and he has been an amazing asset to the America's Next Top Model family," executive producer Ken Mok told People. "We wish him all the best in his future endeavors."
"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," said Cutrone. "Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."
