Less than thirty minutes after we confirmed that Andre Leon Talley was indeed leaving America’s Next Top Model, publicist turned reality star turned self-help guru Kelly Cutrone has announced that she will be taking his seat on the judges panel.
Cutrone announced the news via Twitter:
Cutrone is no television newbie. She spent several seasons on The Hills and The City turning Whitney Port into a “real” and “working” “designer” and gave us the best ever single season of a reality-docu-fashion-drama with the short-lived Kell on Earth on Bravo. While Talley leaves a big seat to fill, Cutrone’s no bullshit brand of tough love is a nice antidote to Tyra Banks‘ somewhat dramatic tendencies.
