America's Next Top Model

Andre Leon Talley Is Leaving Vogue Due to TV Ambitions: Report

Dreckitude alert!

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, former America's Next Top Model judge Andre Leon Talley is splitting with Vogue after 30 years, partly because of his small screen projects.

“The powers that be aren’t huge fans of his television aspirations, and they want to sever all ties now,” a source told the site. (Vogue queen Anna Wintour is not a fan of reality TV and turned down an early partnership with Project Runway.) Andre is developing a late-night show with former NBC exec Ben Silverman; he described the show as blending Dick Cavett with “unparalleled access into my international fashion lifestyle.” Page Six said he also recently signed on as editor-at-large at Numero Russia magazine, and is said to be headed to Moscow.

However, Andre has left and returned to Vogue before, and his rep told the site, “Andre is absolutely maintaining his relationship as a contributor . . . [He] has a number of projects in the works with Vogue and Condé Nast, and maintains a warm relationship with both.”
