Tyra Banks is cleaning house on America’s Next Top Model!

The host and executive producer gave walking papers to photographer Nigel Barker, runway coach J. Alexander and creative director Jay Manuel!

She confirmed news of the major overhaul on her Facebook page.

To my Nigel Barker, Miss J, and Mr Jay: Thank you for all of our years together on America’s Next Top Model! Working with you is always an absolute pleasure. Excited for what the future holds for us. XOXO, TyTy

Rumor has it they were just told yesterday that their contracts wouldn’t be renewed for next season.

Wow, that’s a big shakeup!  I can’t wait to see who she replaces them with!

TELL US – ARE YOU GLAD TO SEE THEM GO? WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD REPLACE THEM? ARE YOU STILL WATCHING THE SHOW AFTER ALL THESE YEARS?

Oh Chris Harrison…I have no doubt that you are the most moral, most ethical, most handsome host of any reality debacle, and, as such, any lawsuit against anything with which you may be remotely involved, needs to be escorted to a limo and ugly cry all the way back to the airport.

As you all have heard, there is a suit pending against the most dramatic show ever for never hiring minority applicants.  Looking back over past seasons, they may actually be on to something!  However, Bachelor producers are no longer staying mum about the accusations according to wetpaint.com.

Warner Horizon, the parent company of the modern day fame whore love connection, released a statement citing, “This complaint is baseless and without merit.  We have had various participants of color throughout the series’ history, and the producers have been consistently — and publicly — vocal about seeking diverse candidates for both programs.”  The statement goes on to say that producers will “continue to seek out participants of color” for the franchise.

Well, I have to recap the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, don’t I? Cause at this point I don’t think there’s much left to say except #BlackBabyGate is still rearing its ugly head, Phaedra Parks really doesn’t know (or want to admit) what Apollo Nida‘s job is, She by SheBroke is a complete idiot. Oh! And Marlo Hampton called Kim Zolciak a whore! Yeah, that happened, indeed it did! Whew – what a moment. What. A. Moment.

Really, we could skip all the other parts and go straight to that, because it’s the only part that really truly matters. It went a little like this: Marlo walks out, rocking pin-straight hair and a dress with shoulders constructed from a bathmat (Project Runway challenge?). She sat down, said no one liked her once she became friends with NeNe Leakes, copped to her charges, denied having her bills paid by Mr. Ted Turner, confirmed she still had a lot of work to do learning etiquette, and then she came out with it. Kim, you’re a whore! Apparently this was in response to something Kim said on the show about Marlo being an escort (which is all but proven fact at this point) with a large ladyhole. All class, no trash!

Frankly, I couldn’t believe it. Marlo just came out and said it – ‘Oh, I think we’re cut from the same cloth… you know, cheap polyester, maybe nylon – oh, wait no… No, we’re not. I’m cut from 10-ply cashmere and you – you’re a whore. You’re just some cheap acrylic. Google my charges! Cause prison uniforms are totally made from luxurious fibers.’

Marlo had it all planned out – she was practically reading a script NeNe had written for her and handily printed up on Gucci stationary; except I really don’t think NeNe was involved in this – nor Bravo, for once – I think Marlo acted as the lone honey badger. Vicious, crazy, and totally entertaining in a sadistic way. That being said – she needs to leave the show. And really, really study that etiquette manual. Like, non-stop. And Kim should be her study partner.

So, Marlo prances out and somehow gets into a screaming fight with Kim about who’s a whore and who’s an escort. It turns out that now that Kim is married, she’s neither a whore nor an escort and that whole Big Poppa charade never happened. Seriously- anytime anyone brings it up she points to her ring and says she’s a married woman now. Ok, but like Marlo said, she used to be a home-wrecking harlot flaunting it on TV and loving every minute of it; waving that big ol’ rock around! So she was basically a whore, but really Marlo: Pot meet Kettle.

It might be time to upgrade your DVR to a higher capacity one. I don’t know about you, but mine screams “GET A LIFE” every single time I add a new show to my lineup.

To add fuel to our reality TV addictions, Bravo dropped six more “unscripted” show bombs on us yesterday.  This is on top of the new show/returning show list they announced earlier this month!

“The Gold Coast” (working title)

This lively, over-the-top group of twenty-something girlfriends exemplify the “Boomerang Generation” as they move back home after graduating from college to live with their parents on the Gold Coast of Long Island.

“Heirs Of Palm Beach” (working title)

Palm Beach is home to the privileged offspring that make up the center of this elite social scene where membership has its privileges and pitfalls.

“Shop With Stella” (working title)

Three best friends and roommates find out if they are way over their heads or on the verge of a very profitable future as they try to launch a killer start-up idea for a fashion website that could revolutionize the way women shop.

“Splitsville” (working title)

These high-powered divorce lawyers battle each other with millions of dollars at stake, all while trying to avoid the same personal perils that trap their wealthy clients.

“Tone It Up” (working title)

Two infectious best friends and roommates become the unlikely “it girls” of the fitness industry after launching their popular Tone It Up website.

“Untitled Male Model Project” (working title)

Some of the most successful men in the world of male modeling try to make the most of this extremely high paying profession with a very short shelf life.

A few of these sound like they might have potential. I’m throwing my name in the hat to be a judge on the Untitled Male Model Project.  I’m a team player like that.  You know I’d bring you the inside scoop.

P.S. Could the networks PLEASE stop scheduling every single reality show on SUNDAY night.  Some of us still have stone age DVRs that only record two shows at once.

TELL US – DO ANY OF THESE SHOWS SOUND WATCHABLE? I WANT TO KNOW HOW MANY SHOWS YOUR DVR RECORDS AT ONCE! HOW MANY REALITY SHOWS ARE IN YOUR LINEUP EACH WEEK?

While we’re all still mourning the exit of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield, she’s ready to move along and take on the fashion world.

Sheree’s rep told Us Weekly yesterday that Sheree is working on her clothing line and revamping it into a line of fitness wear instead of the glamorous elegance that was She by Sheree.

“Now was the right time to head into other endeavors that she has on her plate. She’s going to be launching her fitness blog and revamp She by Sheree as an athletic clothing line rather than couture fashion.”

Couture fashion? There was a couture fashion line?  *cough cough*

Wiping the coffee off my chin and moving along.  It seems that Sheree’s clothing line played a part in her decision to leave RHOA. Sheree was feeling that the show played favorites with Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes and helped their endeavors along, while ignoring hers.

Sheree A friend told Radar Online: “Sheree was jealous of Kim and NeNe. She felt like she wasn’t getting as much attention, they all started together but it’s been unbalanced ever since.” Including the pimping of personal product lines on the show.  “They went out of their way to promote Kim’s wig line and gave her a spin-off for her wedding”, and they let NeNe film with both Glee and Celebrity Apprentice.  (and let’s not forget Kandi’s toy line!) Meanwhile, they spun Sheree’s clothing line launch into a huge joke.  (Thank you, Bravo!)

“She launched a clothing line and they turned it into a joke about how bad the clothes are. She wants to be a fitness instructor and they didn’t even promote that. They didn’t encourage her like they did the other two. She is just not as exciting, she is not as ridiculous, so viewers don’t care as much.”

All that whining aside, it boils down to money! Duh! How else will Neverland be completed? Sheree walked after she was offered significantly less than the others for the upcoming season.

“She was not offered the same money as they were. To be offered less money was the final blow, they said take it or leave it – so she left.”

Speaking of salary, Kim Z was obviously offered plenty, because despite reports that NeNe supposedly demanded they fire her, Kim’s definitely in for the next season of crazy.

Kim took to Twitter yesterday to squash the rumors that she’d been giving her walking papers along with Sheree.

“Lmao…I WILL be back next season on RHOA …. Going to miss @IamSheree though!!! Its Media fakeout!! They always lie!”

There ya have it. Kim is In.

TELL US – ARE YOU DYING TO BUY A SHE BY SHESPORTS BRA? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL BE BACK NEXT SEASON? DO YOU THINK NENE TRIED TO HAVE HER FIRED?

We’re getting down there in numbers as far as this season’s American Idol is concerned.  Ryan Seacrest reveals that Wednesday’s show garnered 53 million votes, which is a record for the season.  The remaining seven perform a group number, and I have to say that these are not my favorite…although I do love Fox’s excessive use of balloons in the opening number.

After the necessary product placement for Ford, Ryan engages in witty banter with the final seven.  He asks Hollie about how last week’s save of Jessica has affected the relationships with the remaining singers.  She gives a politically correct answer before she and Joshua are called to the stage.  After Joshua’s two songs on Wednesday, JLo calls him “beautiful” while Randy Jackson touts him as one of the most gifted singers ever to grace the AI stage.  Steven Tyler believes Joshua climbed inside him…in a good way.

Hollie channeled Adele.  While the judges loved it, and I am no critic, I stand firm that it’s always a bad idea to try to recreate a song which is still popular…and sung by someone so revered in such a small amount of (American pop culture) time.   I loved her “Son of a Preacher Man” rendition, but I don’t think she can hold a candle to Adele, so she shouldn’t have even forced the comparison.  Jimmy is pulling for Joshua, while he thinks Hollie has improved.  Joshua is safe while Hollie finds herself the first in the bottom three.

Taylor Hicks crawls out of that bar I once saw him at in Birmingham to announce he’s got a Vegas tour in the works.  Sure you do…and I am a big fan of THicks.  He also introduces recent Idol winner Kris Allen who debuts a new mediocre song.  The next two up for results are Skylar and Elise.  Skylar rocked a country version of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and I think Gaga herself would be proud.  Her rendition of “Heard It Through the Grapevine” was just as impressive.  Elise is from my home state, so I am glad that she garnered love from JLo and Steven Tyler...but I am not her biggest fan.  Loved Skylar, liked Elise in a “I hate people get voted off this show” sort of way.  Ryan informs Elise that she must join Hollie in the bottom three.

Can anyone REALLY “Keep up with the Kardashians“!?  If we shared and commented on every story about them in the news on a daily basis, we’d have to rename the site to Kardashian Tea.  In an effort to prevent any such name change, we’ll just touch on a few of the highlights of the day.

First up, Kris Humphries reacts to the news that Kim Kardashian wants to enter the political arena by running for mayor.  As you might guess, Kris reportedly finds the whole thing laughable, but not surprising. Honestly, are any of us ever surprised by Kim’s attempts at grabbing headlines?

Radar Online’s source shared this week that “Kris was told about Kim’s plans to become mayor of Glendale as it was making news yesterday. He doesn’t watch any of the Kardashian reality shows on E!, but he is telling his friends that he isn’t surprised that Kim said that because he feels there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do as she is so publicity hungry. It’s just ridiculous and sad to him that Kim is so fixated on fame and celebrity. There is no way that Kim would ever move to Glendale though, she complained whenever she had to stay at Kris’ condominium in Hoboken, New Jersey. Kim said that Hoboken wasn’t exciting enough for her.”

Kris also joked that if Kim can land a job as mayor, that he has a shot at the White House.

Humphries, please don’t give Kris Jenner any ideas.  You know she’s punching out campaign buttons for her Kimmie as we speak and would gladly shift gears to running her presidential campaign.

Moving on!  The media can’t seem to make up its mind on Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.  One day they’re pregnant and the next, they’re not having sex and heading for divorce!

First up, a source tells Us Weekly that Lamar’s father was full of B.S. with his claims that Khloe was pregnant.  It’s supposedly a complete fabrication.

Khloe and Lamar are allegedly heading for a split, not a baby.  According to sources, the two are fighting constantly and aren’t even having sex, making conception a little impossible.

A source shared with Hollywood Life:  “They’re not having sex.  They’ve had a lot of blow-out fights that won’t be included on the show. She and Lamar are definitely headed toward divorce. They’ll be done by the end of the year.”

Khloe is also begging Lamar to go to counseling with her and promising that NO cameras will be involved in the sessions.

Why is it when things get REAL, the “reality” TV stars suddenly don’t want cameras around?

And finally, some NBA “experts” weigh in and state the obvious.  Lamar needs to drop the reality show drama and focus on playing the game if he plans to continue his career in pro basketball.  “If Lamar wants to get back in the game, he needs to keep working out.  He needs to lose every distraction and focus on getting back the sixth man award.”

What do you think Lamar will choose? Basketball or a big glass of Kardashian Kool-Aid?

Khloe tried to squash the divorce rumors by sharing a picture of her having dinner with her man.  Nothing says “we’re still in love” more than a strategy dinner meeting with the Pimpmomager.

TELL US – WOULD YOU VOTE FOR KIM? KRIS? WHAT WILL THE KARDASHIANS DO NEXT FOR A HEADLINE? DO YOU THINK LAMAR AND KHLOE WILL MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE YEAR WITH THEIR MARRIAGE IN TACT?
