The CW’s hit show America’s Next Top Model has a new judge and it’s Kelly Cutrone. Kelly will be filling some big shoes, as Andre Leon Talley is leaving the show after four seasons. Keep reading to learn more about Ms. Cutrone!
Kelly Cutrone is no rookie when it comes to reality TV. Most of you probably remember her as the blunt, take no bullshit, boss from MTV’s The Hills. It’s true that you don’t want to be on Ms. Cutrone’s bad side, but she is also a loyal person and an extremely successful business woman. Kelly is the owner of People’s Revolution, which is a fashion PR firm. Kelly also had her on reality show, Kel on Earth, which gave viewers a glimpse into her business world and her personal life as a mother.
So what does Kelly think about her upcoming gig on America’s Next Top Model? Kelly released a statement saying, “I am a huge fan of America’s Next Top Model. Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show.”
Don’t worry Andre fans, Andre will finish out his judging duties this season. Kelly will join the panel in season 18 – yes that’s right this show will be on its 18th season!
Watch out models, because I don’t think this new girl will be shy! I picture Kelly as the Simon Cowell of America’s Next Top Model. But will she be able to coin her own catchphrases like Andre’s “dreckitude” and “smize”? We will have to wait and see!
