Tyra Banks Is Taking Over 'Dancing With the Stars' After Tom Bergeron Firing!

After announcing 'Dancing With the Stars' would be headed in a new creative direction for season 29, the most dramatic move for fans of the series would be saying goodbye to original host, Tom Bergeron. Along with Tom, his sidekick since 2013 (and season 10 competitor), Erin Andrews was also given the boot, leaving fans skeptical if they would even watch the new season. 

Though the show had been renewed, there is no set return date since COVID is not seemingly going anywhere soon, especially in California, where 'DWTS' is filmed. With this new "creative direction," everyone wondered who would take over the lifeline of the show and now, we have an answer. Tyra Banks, of 'America's Next Top Model' fame and supermodel extraordinaire, will be the new host and producer and she is over the moon, according to a PR from the network:

"I've been a fan of 'DWTS' since its beginning ... The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances ... it's always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk. Tom has set a powerful stage, and I'm excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats."

Tyra obviously knows how to produce and host a successful show, proof being 'ANTM' but she also has a harsh side which we saw on the many years she hosted the modeling competition. The biggest question is will she be able to wear all of the hats and do the balancing act that added up to Bergeron and Andrews and do it to perfection. What do you think of Tyra as the host and was it a move for diversity? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @3icecubes!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
