The best reality judge in the history of reality television is leaving on a high note. André Leon Talley confirms to "Page Six" he's leaving Top Model after the current season and it has nothing to do with a fight with Tyra Banks.
“It’s all good in the neighborhood,” the Vogue editor told us yesterday. “I had a fabulous time. It was a mutual agreement. There is no unhappiness, at all.”
He went about his time on the show in the most fashionable way: arrive late and leave early without doing anything embarrassing. The show has at least one more cycle after the current season, and so they'll need a replacement for Talley, whose departure makes us wonder if the show has finally peaked and won't last much longer. Kelly Cutrone remains the rumored front-runner. Whoever replaces him has quite a seat to fill.

Update 10:26 a.m.: People confirms that Kelly Cutrone is replacing A.L.T. on ANTM. "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," she said. And that is what's being done with your Top Model, friends.
