Tyra, who took over hosting duties after Nick Cannon stepped down, in just a few months in her gig, but sources are revealing exclusively to Life & Style that the smizing beauty might receive the pink slip. Yes, Tyra might get fired before making it to her second season.
“There are some big shake-ups about to happen on AGT, and Tyra could be on the chopping block,” a source said. And ratings are not to blame. According to the insider, Tyra hasn’t made any friends behind the scenes.
“The cast and crew have found Tyra tough to work with,” the source adds. “She has to be in charge at all times, and she always has to have the last word.” Earlier this season, the show was sued after the ANTM creator was accused of verbally assaulting and physically manipulating a contestant.
According to the complaint, Tyra “publicly humiliated” the girl and proceeded to shake her shoulders, pull her hair back, and insinuate that she was conceived accidentally. The contestant is said to be “traumatized and deeply depressed” following the experience. Tyra has not commented on the lawsuit.
However, we have a feeling Tyra will be able to keep busy even if she loses the hosting job — especially now that she is trying for baby No. 2 with her hubby Erik Asla. The couple welcomed son York via surrogate last year, and are ready to expand their family again.
“Tyra’s always wanted two kids. [She’s] itching for a daughter this time. She’d love a mini version of herself to dress up,” a source told Life & Style. “Tyra loves the idea because growing up, she had an older brother.”
And who can forget about Tyra reprising her role as the Eve, the doll who comes to life, in Life-Size 2. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you, Tyra!
