Tyra Banks & Chrissy Teigen Beefing over New TV Show?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Supermodel Tyra Banks and John Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen inked a new TV show together based on lifestyle topics, but sources are now claiming that the two ladies are already at odds even though the “The FAB Life” hasn’t even premiered yet.
Apparently sources claim it was clear there’s friction at a recent marketing shoot.

We’re told that Banks and fellow supermodel Teigen were “barely speaking” after the pilot for their upcoming show filmed last year.
“You never put two supermodels on the same show together,” said a TV insider of the rift. “Especially when one’s more than 10 years younger than the other.”
Of Banks, 41, and Teigen, 29 — who is wed to singer John Legend and also stars on Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” — our source said: “They are so different. Tyra thinks about everything. She thinks about what to say, down to when to move her arm. Chrissy is from the new school, where she says whatever she wants.”
On the upcoming show, Banks “will lead a panel of diverse lifestyle experts,” including former Elle creative director and current Yahoo Style Editor-in-Chief Joe Zee, interior designer Lauren Makk and YouTube star Leah Ashley.
We’re told Banks, executive producer of the show, recruited Zee, but that ABC encouraged her to cast Teigen as a “social media expert.” “Don’t look for her and Chrissy to co-host many segments together,” sniped a source.
Tyra’s camp is denying she’s on rocky terms with Chrissy and considers her a friend.
“The FAB Life” debuts on ABC this fall.
