'America's Next Top Model': Has Miss J been demoted?
It sure has been quite a week for Miss J. Alexander news. He has a new book. He revealed that he’s a daddy. Now, reports say that he has been demoted from the “Top Model” judging panel.
This morning, rumors spread claiming Alexander has been replaced by the supreme diva, Andre Leon Talley, Vogue’s editor at large. The New York Daily News claims that sources on the “Top Model” set say that Alexander will turn in his judging role and return to his former one as the contestants’ runway coach for Cycle 14.
The article also claims that former supermodel and fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons will permanently assume the fourth judging spot. You know, the one with the curse on it? Past victims include Janice Dickinson and Paulina Porizkova.
A rep for the CW has denied to Show Tracker that Simmons and Talley will be joining the show. He was not able to confirm or deny Miss J’s demotion, though.
What would “Top Model” be without Miss J’s elimination gimmicks like this cycle’s growing sleeves? Who will meanly mimic the girls when they’ve done something ridiculous? If it’s true, Miss J, thank you for the memories.
