- "America's Next Top Model" is going through another judge shakeup. Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley will leave the show after this cycle and be replaced by Kelly Cutrone ("The Hills," "Kell on Earth"), who runs the fashion publicity/marketing firm People's Revolution. "I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with 'Top Model' one of the best moments of my life," Talley says. [ People]

- "FlashForward" star and "Lost" star-crossed lover Sonya Walger will head to USA for her next series project.
