Report: Tyra Banks wants off of 'Top Model,' feuding with Jay Manuel

By Christopher Rocchio, 03/26/2008 

From her syndicated daytime talk show to helming her production company, Tyra Banks apparently has little time left in her busy schedule for America's Next Top Model.

"She wants another supermodel to replace her for Cycle 13 so she can focus on her other projects," a Top Model "insider" told OK! Weekly in a Wednesday report. "She has a lot on her plate. Something's got to give."

Banks has also reportedly gotten quite catty with the show's art director Jay Manuel, another sign she might be ready to step down as Top Model's lead judge.

"Tyra Banks is not getting along with Jay Manuel," the insider told OK!.  "She thinks he has become a diva and is ungrateful to her for making him a star. The way she sees it, it's thanks to her that he now has a makeup line, a show on Style Network and hosts Canada's version of Top Model."

In addition, Banks is also apparently giving the cold shoulder to the runway wannabes competing on The CW reality series, which is currently airing its tenth season.

"Tyra barely interacts with the contestants and only wants to show up on judging day," the insider told OK!.

Banks was recently vocal when it comes to ending her on-air involvement with the show.

"I feel like there may be a day when I'm not going to do it," said Banks in Us Weekly's March 10 issue.  "I think it will live on with other supermodels hosting it.  But forever?  No.  I don't think it's The Price is Right."

While Banks may be moving behind the camera, the show she created isn't going anywhere anytime soon.  The CW president Dawn Ostroff told reporters at last summer's Television Critics Association summer press tour that the network has signed a deal with Banks to keep Top Model on the air through the 2009-2010 television season.
