Nigel Barker Talks Getting Fired By Tyra Banks, Hired As Host For 'The Face' On 'WWHL' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Nigel Barker dropped by "Watch What Happens: Live" to talk about the wildest week in his professional life thus far. It all started when he was unceremoniously dumped from "America's Next Top Model" after 18 seasons with the show.

"You got canned," Andy Cohen said bluntly. He then asked if Barker had any resentment toward Tyra Banks for letting him go.

"For a moment, but, you know, it was a week later when I got a call from Oxygen saying, ‘We’d like you to be the host of ‘The Face.’" Barker said. "So, one week of resentment. I’m over it now. Now I’m the host. Watch out, Tyra!"

This time, Barker gets to sit back and leave the judging to others, but that doesn't mean he's not up for some friendly host competition with his former boss.

Watch Nigel Barker on "The Face," premiering Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on Oxygen. "Watch What Happens: Live" airs every Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
