According to Page Six...
Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen have the pleasure of working together on Tyra's new daytime show The FAB Life premiering on Disney/ABC Domestic TV. But the only pleasure these two are said to be having is bumping heads.
We’re told that Banks and fellow supermodel Teigen were “barely speaking” after the pilot for their upcoming show filmed last year. “You never put two supermodels on the same show together,” said a TV insider of the rift. “Especially when one’s more than 10 years younger than the other.” Of Banks, 41, and Teigen, 29 — who is wed to singer John Legend and also stars on Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” — our source said: “They are so different. Tyra thinks about everything. She thinks about what to say, down to when to move her arm. Chrissy is from the new school, where she says whatever she wants.” On the upcoming show, Banks “will lead a panel of diverse lifestyle experts,” including former Elle creative director and current Yahoo Style Editor-in-Chief Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk and YouTube star Leah Ashley.
I could have called this before the ink was dried on their contracts. Tyra is a savvy business woman with calculated decisions while Chrissy is more of the out spoken model most notably known for her social media mishaps. People like these two simply don't mix well together....not to mention they both are very beautiful women.
I'll watch in the fall simply to see if I can sense the tension.
We’re told Banks, executive producer of the show, recruited Zee, but that ABC encouraged her to cast Teigen as a “social media expert.” “Don’t look for her and Chrissy to co-host many segments together,” sniped a source.
A different source denied there’s any beef and said it’s “a love fest” between Tyra and Chrissy. “If Tyra had a problem with Chrissy, she wouldn’t be on the show,” said the source. “They’re friends, there’s no drama.” An ABC rep had no comment.
