Los Angeles, Jan 17 (IANS) Supermodel Tyra Banks, also the former host of “America’s Next Top Model”, parted ways with the talent show when it was dropped by the CW Network after a 22-season run. But now that it has been moved to another channel, rumours are rife that the 42-year-old could be brought back on board.
The show will now be aired on Vh1.
“She said it was time for ‘ANTM’ to end but her show bombed and now it is getting picked up again,” a source told Vogue.co.uk, reports femalefirst.co.uk
Reports also suggest that the model was dropped because of her huge salary, and the savings the show made enabled bosses to revive it.
“The CW Network cancelled ‘America’s Next Top Model’ even though it was their most downloaded show. But the speculation was that it’s because Tyra’s salary is so high. It’s an expensive show to make because she gets a load of money,” the source said.
The news comes soon after the supermodel quit her new daytime talk show “FABLife”.
