People's Revolution PR guru and reality television goddess Kelly Cutrone has spent the last few days in Old Blighty on the UK leg of her book tour and speaking at the super-prestigious TedXOxford. Meanwhile, back home, the rumor mill is all astir over a Page Six item today claiming that Cutrone is thisclose to ousting Andre Leon Talley from his judge's seat on America's Next Top Model.
The gossip column reports: "Sources close to the catwalk competition say Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley will exit Tyra Banks’ series after its 17th season wraps, and Kelly Cutrone may take his place."
We don't know about you, but we would like to have both Talley and Cutrone on the ANTM judging panel at the same time. Since joining the cast four seasons ago, Talley has definitely been one the brightest stars on the reality competition. Obviously, Tyra Banks gets to stay because, well, she created the show. But the other judges, we could lose them. What do you say, CW? Banks, Cutrone, and Talley in the judge's seats. That would totally kill it. And, maybe, get us to watch the show again for the first time in years.
