It looks like Tyra Banks may have abandoned her talk show, The Fab Life, to return to America’s Next Top Model (ANTM).
According to the NY Daily News, VH1 has picked up the modeling competition for at least one new season. The CW canceled the popular show in 2015 after 22 seasons.
Though ANTM slid in ratings during its last years, it was still the CW’s most downloaded show. Sources say that the series was canceled because of Tyra’s astronomical salary. “It’s an expensive show to make because she gets a sh–load of money,” shares an informant close to the CW production.
Tyra was “banking” several checks as the show’s host, creator and executive producer. Part of the deal negotiated by co-creator Ken Mok may include the model relinquishing control of hosting the VH1 reboot.
The 42-year-old super model is currently hawking “Tyra Beauty,” her new cosmetics line. She recently made a cameo appearance on the ABC show Black-ish and she’s also starring and executive producing the film Life Size 2.
Nowadays, you have a better shot of becoming a professional model from Instagram than ANTM. Beauties, are you interested in watching season 23 of the reality competition?
