Tyra Banks is getting sick of 'Next Top Model'



Tbdtyrabanks032708 We've had a spate of Tyra Banks news on The Juice* lately, and that's because we revel in having the TV-watching predilections of teen-aged girls by counting America's Next Top Model as one of our faves.

But all is not well on Banksian shores: Ok! says Tyra is so sick and tired of the grind (the show's on its 10th season) that she's looking for a way out. Not only that, but she and shoot director Jay Manuel (that'd be MISTER Jay to you) are on the outs.

“It’s gotten so bad that Tyra and Jay aren’t speaking,” a source told the magazine. “Tyra barely interacts with the contestants and only wants to show up on judging day.”

So it seems Ty-Ty is more focused on her inane talk show, and is looking for another model to replace her. Could that be why Paulina Porizkova is on this season? Eh, we doubt it.

“She’s putting lots of pressure on her staff to keep her show on the map," the source claims." She had Barack Obama on, she had Hillary Clinton on — she got a taste of playing with the big boys and now Top Model seems to detract from her big plans.”

You mean her big plans of super-sizing at McDonald's and getting her weave redone? That's right, we went there.
