After nearly 30 years at the right hand of Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna WintourAndre Leon Talley, the fashion bible's inimitable Editor-at-Large-slash-Contributing-Editor, is rumored to be leaving the publication. 

A report in the New York Post's "Page Six" gossip column cites sources that claim Talley's longstanding television ambitions have left a sour taste in Wintour's mouth—the icy editrix has long been suspicious of the medium and, following Talley's star turn alongside Tyra Banks on America's Next Top Model a few seasons back, demoted the larger-than-life fashion personality from his plum Editor-at-Large position to Contributing Editor.

"The powers that be aren't huge fans of his television aspirations," a source told the newspaper, "and they want to sever all ties now."
