According to a report on gossip site RumorFix, while Project Runway All Stars is currently filming in New York, supermodel Heidi Klum is not hosting it—even though Klum has hosted the last nine seasons of the Project Runway show on television.
Rumorfix says that the network and Klum have fallen out over money. And what's worse? Lifetime has apparently hired a new supermodel to replace her—a new supermodel! Who could possibly replace our beloved Heidi? The story goes:
We understand a new supermodel has been hired to replace her—Heidi and the production company couldn’t come to terms on money. The production team is shooting episode three of the eight-episode order featuring some of your favorite contestants from past seasons.Wait, new judges too? No Michael Kors? What fresh hell is this.
A rep for Project Runway confirms to RumorFix, “There will be a new host and there will be new judges, which we will release later,” but she wants to make it clear that “Heidi is not leaving Project Runway.”
