Tyra Banks Unhappy with Rita Ora?


Last year former Roc Nation artist Rita Ora took over as host of America's Next Top Model [click here if you missed that].

Now insiders say Tyra Banks wants her out...

From OK Magazine
"There was hope that Rita would revive ANTM's ratings" for the 23rd season, "but after a promising start, the numbers dwindled."
And when Tyra, who remains as the executive producer, found out about the reason behind the sliding rating could be partially Rita's fault, as she was "sometimes unprepared," said an insider, Tyra "was furious."

I wish Tyra along with Mr. & Ms. Jay would return and Nigel. This new cast is wack and weak. The shoots are shit the themes are garbage.

What did she do before joining Roc Nation - interesting, as she fails @ everything she tries. Faux player ?

I like this season and I havent watched ANTM in a lot of years. I think Rita did a good job I like Ashley I liked this season. Maybe Ms. Tyra thinks no one can do her job like her.

Tyra we've all been unhappy with Rita for decades. Just ask Rob Kardashian. If you're looking for C/D-Level talent just hire Cynthia Bailey from RHOA

@12:52 I agree I haven't kept up with the series but what I saw of the new panel I found refreshing Tyra was becoming a MANIC.

Rita was a wack choice to begin with

At 9:09 AM - Yes! I love the original judges. Tyra needs to just face the fact that the show has just run its course. It's been on since 2003. I remember watching the very first season. There're only so many ways you can show how the modeling industry works. Even if she were still hosting it, it would not bring in the number of viewership like it used to. So, I wouldn't necessarily blame the dip in ratings on Rita. The show is just done. She had a good run for 14 years, and it's time to move on.

This was a brilliant strategy by Tyra. She knew people were tired of her and the original panel. She steps down and relaunches the show sub-par host/panel. Viewers will beg for Tyra and panel to come back.

Tyra is a strategist.
