Miss Jay got her walking papers???? Damn Tyra is cold blooded!
Tyra Banks Fires Longtime “America’s Next Top Model” Mentors Jay Manuel, J. Alexander and Nigel Barker
Model turned media mogul Tyra Banks swung the ax at her longtime “America’s Next Top Model” co-stars J. Alexander, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker yesterday, dismissing three of the competition’s longest-running personalities in one fell swoop.
Sources tell Page Six that the three mentors were informed yesterday morning that their contracts would not be renewed for the next season.
Barker is a photographer and a judge on the program, while Alexander helped contestants work the catwalk as the “runway trainer.” Manuel served as the show’s creative director. All have been with the program since its inception, in 2003.
Ouch, after nine years on the job, that’s gotta hurt! What is Tyra thinking? Do you think this is a smart business maneuver for the recent Harvard grad???
