We love some good dramz!
Now that Nigel Barker has a new show to promote, the former America’s Next Top Model judge of 10 years is finally opening up about being unceremoniously fired by Tyra Banks!
When asked if Tyra gave him her blessing to sign on as the host of Naomi Campbell's The Face, the noted fashion photographer said:
"No, but she's also the one who fired me [from ANTM]. Listen, she fired me but ultimately things changed. She’s also the one who hired me. We had ten years, had a great run and did 18 seasons. I still consider her a friend and we had a great time together. But she moved on and is trying to reinvent her show and all the rest of it. Ultimately I’m very excited. I’m on to a whole new thing and it’s great for me."
It’s not as dramatic as we’d hoped for, since all the clawing and yelling is missing, but we’re glad they’re on good terms.
We even bet Tyra sits down and watches her old pal on the show.
Okay, maybe not, but at least there’s no bad blood.
