Elle Macpherson's star has fallen from Fashion Star!

The Body will no longer be the hostess with the mostess for NBC's fashion competition show when it returns for its second season.

Even though Elle is out as hostess, she says she'll still be very involved with the show as executive producer:

"I have been involved with Fashion Star from the beginning, and am very proud to see it come to life, not only in America but globally. The show is in great hands, and although I will not be hosting this season, I will still be very involved [and] will be reviewing the format for the upcoming season."

Also not returning for the second season? Co-sponsor H&M. According to sources the fast fashion chain decided the reality show was no longer "a good fit".

Despite all the changes, mentors Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos and Nicole Richie are still on board, at least for now.

Thoughts???

Elle Macpherson To Host NBC's Fashion Star

More deets have surfaced about NBC's new fashion reality show that began casting last month.

The show's official title is Fashion Star and will be hosted by Elle "The Body" Macpherson.

Producer Ben Silverman said the prime-time program will "introduce would-be designers — not of high-end fashion in the manner of “Project Runway,” but creators of fashion lines that might include bathing suits or lingerie, or surf wear and jeans".

He added "retail buyers would be involved in selecting the winning designs" and "each week viewers will be able to go online and buy the designs created by the contestants, even the losing ones".

And even though there's no New York Fashion Week presentation like Project Runway, the grand prize is equally as enticing: a multimillion-dollar contract to place a new fashion line in top retail stores.

This show sounds a lot better than Bravo's The Fashion Show and Launch My Line, don't cha think?

NBC Gets Some Party People!

ben silverman sells new pilot to nbc party people

Finally! A show with some potential!

Sources are confirming that former co-chair of NBC, Ben Silverman, has just sold a pitch to his former stomping grounds. The show, titled Party People, is being described as a modern-day Taxi. The premise involves a group of under-employed entertainers who are forced to work for children's parties.

Ha! The cynicism practically writes itself!

This could be the pick-me-up in the comedy department NBC so desperately needs!

Do U think you'd watch it?

Latinolicious!

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara will executive produce a new sitcom based on the popular Spanish series Aquí no hay quien viva (aka I Hate This Place).

Ben Silverman approached Vergara on the project that will air on ABC. The script for the single camera comedy will be written by Craig Doyle.

The show is a multi-cultural and multi-generational comedy similar to Modern Family, but set in an apartment building. It centers around old school father and his lazy ass son who are forced to work together to manage the crazy tenants of the building that has been in their family for generations.

We love it!
