Kimora Lee Simmons New Judge on Top Model

America's Next Top Model is going even more diva on us! The show is getting an overhaul next season, and adding a new judge. And it’s none other than Tyra Banks’ very own pal Kimora Lee Simmons.

As you ay recall, Kimora appeared on the first season of the show, but was quickly fired. But word on the street is that there’s no bad blood between the ladies.

So now the rumor is that Kimora will permanently fill one of the judge’s seats, which has been a revolving door this season for celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan. And Gatecrasher reports that Miss J. will go back to being a runway coach. His chair will be filled by Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley.

A source says, "No one is sure why Miss J has been demoted from being a judge back to just doing the runway coaching.”

We’d hardly call it a demotion. Maybe Tyra just thinks that’s what he’s great at! She’s got to keep the show fresh to keep it on the air! What do you think of Kimora filling a judge’s seat?
