Don't scare us like this, Page Six: the gossip rag reports that Andre Leon Talley, longtime flamboyant old kook at Vogue, is parting ways over his TV ambitions.
Sources are saying the editor-at-large's 30+ year relationship with Vogue could come to an end because they don't want to be associated with the late-night talk show that Talley is developing. The talk show is being developed by former NBC executive Ben Silverman and will combine the usual chat format with fashion.
Talley has represented Vogue on television in the past: he's appeared as a judge on America's Next Top Model, reported on Entertainment Tonight, and the Sex & The City film, plus numerous other TV gigs. But something about his late night talk show plans — perhaps because it won't be exculsively Vogue focused? — are chafing with the fashion mag.
Maybe this won't be the worst news in the world: an Andre Leon Talley talk show will probably be a thing of wonder. But only if Grace Coddington is his side man.
