Kelly Cutrone

There’s a big change coming up on next season’s America’s Next Top Model as judge André Leon Talley is leaving the show following four cycles.

PEOPLE magazine is confirming that André, Vogue contributing editor, will be replaced by New York Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone.

“I am a huge fan of America’s Next Top Model and have watched the show for years,” said Kelly, 45, owner of People’s Revolution. “Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show.”

André, 61, who joined the show in early 2010 after many years of pleading from Tyra Banks, reveals there are no hard feelings about the change. “I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with Top Model one of the best moments of my life,” he states. “Tyra is an incredible role model and I learned so much sitting next to her through four cycles.”

Kelly will replace André starting early next year with cycle 18. She is well known for starring on MTV’s “The Hills” and Bravo’s “Kell on Earth“.

Just weeks after her co-star Roxy Olin came out slamming her, saying she is as nasty in real life as she is on tv, Olivia Palermo is now attempting to defend herself or her reputation for being difficult and arrogant rather.

The City star tells an Australian magazine, “I’d like to think that I’m the complete opposite of what you see on The City.” And when it comes to her off-screen friendship with co-star Whitney Port, she best describes it as a “working relationship”.

She adds: “We’re both incredibly busy, but we always try and take a few moments to catch up whenever we bump into each other, which is rare.”

Olivia also isn’t taking too well to being compared to Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf. “From what I heard, Blair’s not a very nice character. I’m nothing like that so I beg to differ,” she said.

In other City news, the season finale aired last night and brought us more drama than we are used to on the show. Earlier this season, we saw Whitney and Roxy fight over a celebrity styling session, leading to Roxy moving out. However last night’s finale was all about Whitney vs Kelly Cutrone.

It all starts when Whitney meets with Alison Brod, owner of Alison Brod PR, to see what they can do for her Whitney Eve line if she hires them. Alison then goes around telling people that Whitney has fired Kelly and hired her. This of course gets back to Kelly, leading to a sit down with Whitney.

“I don’t know how this can go from me helping you to me getting fired,” says Kelly. Whitney apologizes but Kelly isn’t too forgiving. Roxy then informs Whitney that her loyalty lies with Kelly, basically letting Whitney know she will go with Kelly if Whitney decides to change PR firms. And end season…

Things are bound to heat up on tonight’s episode of The City, as the tension mounts between Olivia Palermo and her colleague, Elle’s PR Director Erin Kaplan, over wardrobe for a television shoot.

On tonight’s episode, we get to see the two women disagree on an assignment. Erin makes an executive decision to send some of the clothes picked out by Olivia back. “I know what the producers want,” she says. “I’ve done more than my share of segments for TV.” This leaves Olivia annoyed of course, who then confronts her colleague for speaking to her dismissively. “Erin,” she asks, “would you talk to [Creative Director] Joe in the tone that you talk to me?”

“You’re not Joe,” Erin fires back. “When are you creative director of the magazine?” The argument continues as Olivia demands respect, leading Erin to then send an assistant out of the room, as the two continue to argue.

On the other side of the city, over at People’s Revolution, we get to see Roxy Olin‘s attempt to help Whitney Port/ impress her boss Kelly Cutrone fall short.

The City airs Tuesdays 10:30/9:30c on MTV.
