We were rooting for you, we were all rooting for you… and it paid off!

Tyra Banks shocked the world when she quit both America's Next Top Model and FABLife to focus on her other business ventures, but now we officially know what she's been up to for the past year.

That's because in addition to getting cast as a mentor on Arnold Schwarzenegger's Celebrity Apprentice, NBC just put in a series order for a brand new reality show starring Mizz Tyra herself!

Tyra confirmed the good news in a statement on Wednesday, saying:

This wouldn't be a difficult question for us to answer!

If you're not completely obsessed with deaf model/all-around hottie Nyle DiMarco by now… then we don't know what's wrong with you.

Not only is the dreamboat a TWO TIME reality show winner — America's Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars – but the 27-year-old has also been an advocate for sexual fluidity!

Seeing as he falls somewhere on the queer spectrum, Nyle made sure to get some LGBT work in following his DWTS championship, and he ended up in the arms of none other than Billy Eichner!

No… this isn't some Billy on the Street sketch, Nyle actually plays a one-off love interest for Billy on Season Two of Difficult People on Hulu, which just dropped on Monday!

In the scene, Billy works up the courage to ask Nyle's character Doug out on a date… but doesn't quite realize that Doug is deaf — It's a good thing John Early is there to serve as Doug's awkward interpreter, though! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out Billy and Nyle's adorable Difficult People meet cute (below)!!!

Earlier this year, Rita Ora announced she would be quitting the judging panel of X Factor so she could focus on her music career.

But it looks like the songstress is focusing on her TV hosting career instead, because she reportedly signed up to be the next host of America's Next Top Model!

Tyra Banks' model competition show was cancelled by The CW earlier this year, only to be resurrected by VH1 — with the promise of a complete makeover!

And according to The Sun, Ora already struck a deal to be the new host! A source said:

They sure do manage to get a big name at least once per season!

Tara Reid may be known for her partying days more than she is for her semi-steady career as an actress, but what she's really remembered for is her 2005 TV show Taradise

At least, that's what Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars must be thinking since they just announced the 40-year-old and her boyfriend Dean May will be part of the cast this year!

Video: Mama June Calls Papa Bear Bisexual On Marriage Boot Camp!

While we wouldn't quite call Tara a reality star — she was eliminated third on Celebrity Big Brother 8 — we're more than happy to welcome her into the world because she's practically guaranteed to be good TV!

Tara and Dean will be joined by America's Next Top Model's Lisa D'Amato and her husband Adam Friedman, Bachelor in Paradise's Michelle Money and Cody Sattler, Toya Family Affair's Toya Wright and Memphtiz, and Basketball Wives LA's Brittish Williams and Lorenzo Gordon.

This is going to be an absolute trainwreck… and we CANNOT wait!

Sad.

Fashion photographer Nigel Barker courageously revealed on Tuesday that he was sexually assaulted as child.

The former ANTM judge opened up about his life-altering experience on his SiriusXM show Gentlemen's Code in order to raise awareness for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The 43-year-old personality recalled being just eight years old when he was approached by a man in his 40s while walking home from school. After helping the stranger with directions, the man claimed he couldn't read so Barker agreed to help.

He shared:

"I went up to the door and read the names on the buzzers … I went to push it, and he pushed me from behind, jolted me through the doors and I fell to my feet inside the door. The door closed and I'm not trapped between a stairwell inside and a shut door. I have a man who is much bigger than me, push me to the ground, grab me, pull my trousers and my pants down. I'm now exposed and I'm screaming and thrashing."

Thankfully, the now-father-of-two was able to escape:

Niall Horan's Rumored Fling Jessica Serfaty's Ex-Husband Says She Left Their 7-Year-Old Son For Fame In Hollywood

Jessica Serfaty and Niall Horan

Buckle up, Perezcious readers… this one's a doozy.

As we told you last month, Niall Horan was seen spending his weekend canoodling with former ANTM contestant Jessica Serfaty in between both Las Vegas and El Lay. Previously, the 25-year-old was also connected to Justin Bieber and Joe Jonas the before that!

And if you follow Jessica on social media, it seems as though she spends most of her time these days with Matt Cutshall and Fernando Contreras of Vine fame.

Still with us?

In a new interview with DailyMail, the model's ex-husband Ididia Serfaty has come out of the wood works to claim that Jessica "abandoned" their seven-year-old son Roman in order to pursue her Hollywood dreams.

Ididia claims that Jessica only makes time to see her son during the summer and some Christmases.

A little background: Jessica and Ididia met at church in Arkansas when she was 16 and he was 22 years old. According to him, Jessica got pregnant during the first time they had sex when she was 17. Everything reportedly changed when she was cast on America's Next Top Model, placing fourth in the competition. She eventually decided to head out to El Lay to pursue her career in the industry. The whole family uprooted to Hollywood, but it wasn't long before everything went downhill, and Ididia returned to Arkansas with little Roman.

Ididia claims to being a single dad for the past four-and-a-half years back in their hometown:
