Tyra Banks is cleaning house. In the face of declining ratings, the 38-year old supermodel announced earlier today that “America’s Next Top Model” veterans J. Alexander, Nigel Barker and Jay Manuel, would not be returning to the show next season.

In a statement, “ANTM” executive producers Banks and Ken Mok said, “Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J. Alexander have been an integral part of the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ brand and they helped turn this show into the household name it is today. They have been amazing assets to the show and will always be a part of the ‘Top Model’ family. We will continue to actively work with each of them on future projects.”

Tyra Banks Gets Her Degree

Two years after surprising the world by enrolling in Harvard Business School, 39-year old supermodel Tyra Banks has earned her degree, graduating from the school’s prestigious Owner/President Management Program.

Though an already successful entrepreneur with several lucrative ventures under her belt, Tyra said she went back to school to better learn how to manage those businesses, as well as the multitude of opportunities that were coming her way.

So, what will the CEO of Bankable Productions do with her newfound business knowledge? Well, when being interviewed by Professor Youngme Moon earlier this month, Tyra said she wants to turn her brand into a sustainable legacy and cites Walt Disny and Virgin’s Richard Branson as her role models.

“I’m not looking to build my company based on fans,” she said. “Rather, I feel a responsibility to spread my message of empowerment, self-esteem, and beauty in a way that’s consistent with my ethos and, hopefully, favorable to my bottom line.”

Spoken like a true businesswoman.
