Remember when we reported that André Leon Talley has a late-night television show in the works. Well, apparently the show demands so much of his time that it may jeopardize his position at Vogue, according to Page Six. The column claims Talley’s deal to get his own show also underscores friction at Condé Nast — which hired Hollywood exec Dawn Ostroff to develop film and TV deals around its magazine brands.
While the source is obviously questionable, we do have to note that his title was changed from editor-at-large to contributor after appearing on “America’s Next Top Model” and other entertainment style shows. On top of that, he has agreed to serve as the editor-at-large for the forthcoming Numéro Russia in Moscow– so his plate is pretty full.
A representative for Talley told the newspaper, “Andre is absolutely maintaining his relationship as a contributor . . . [He] has a number of projects in the works with Vogue and Condé Nast, and maintains a warm relationship with both.”
But we’ll just have to wait and see how this all plays out.
