Here’s the Real Reason Why Heidi Klum Left ‘Project Runway’

Project Runway is set to make a much-anticipated return to TV on Thursday after a year and a half off the air and a (second) network change. But the 17th season of the beloved competition show will be missing a major player: Heidi Klum.

A true fashion icon, Heidi helped to create Project Runway and served as a judge, host, and executive producer for all 16 of its original seasons. So understandably, her seemingly sudden departure has fans wondering: Why is Heidi Klum leaving Project Runway at all?!

As it turns out, Heidi isn’t leaving fashion TV entirely. In fact, she and her Project Runway costar Tim Gunn are both launching a brand-new project with Amazon Prime Video.

After 16 incredible seasons, I am saying ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ to Project Runway, a show that I was honored to host and help create,” Heidi announced back in September 2018. “I’m most excited that my journey with my dear friend and colleague, Tim Gunn, is far from over. We will be partnering with Amazon for a new show, and we’re excited for everyone to see what we’re designing next!

Although details on Heidi and Tim’s upcoming Amazon show are pretty limited, People reports that the series will be a “fresh take” on competition-based reality TV and, of course, will center around fashion. The show will also involve a “shoppable experience” for Amazon viewers.

In Heidi and Tim’s absence, Project Runway (now back on Bravo) will continue with renowned model Karlie Kloss as host and former contestant/fashion designer Christian Siriano as mentor. Judges Elaine Welteroth, Brandon Maxwell, and Nina Garcia will remain with the cast.

Is Heidi Klum, 45, pregnant with first child with Tom Kaulitz?

Thit sounds as if Heidi Klum and her fiancé Tom Kaulitz have a lot more to look forward to than a wedding this year, with news reported on Monday that they are expecting their first child together. Fashion designer Wolfgang Joop was chatting to TV channel RTL when he seemingly let slip the news, and while Heidi and Tom have yet to confirm it, they have also not denied the rumours. Heidi is also a doting mum to four older children – Leni, 14; Henry, 12; Johan, 11; and Lou, 8. HELLO! has reached out to Heidi’s rep for comment.

In December, Tom – the guitarist in rock band Tokio Hotel – popped the question to Heidi just after Christmas, with Heidi sharing the happy news on her Instagram page. Heidi, 45, and Tom, 29, made their red carpet debut in May 2018, and have been inseparable ever since. The couple have opened up about their 17-year age difference during an interview with People in July, with Heidi saying of Tom: “He is the kindest, sweetest, most caring, loving person. I feel so lucky. I don’t know the last time I was this happy in my life. He is absolutely wonderful. Maybe it is because he is German and we understand each other in a different way. But so far so good.

Recently, Heidi spoke to HELLO! about raising her children in the spotlight, and revealed that they are all pursuing their own paths right now. She said of oldest daughter Leni: “She wants to dance right now. I’m letting her do what she wants to do.” Heidi added: “I’m not putting any seeds in my kids’ heads of what they should do. I want them to come up with their own things. They are not really stage kids. For example, my oldest son is 12; he’s turning 13. I think he has his dad’s voice. It has that husky, sexy kind of voice that Seal has. I’m always like Henry, you have such a beautiful voice, but he doesn’t want to. He loves sports.

Tom Kaulitz Custom-Designed Heidi Klum’s Engagement Ring: ‘He Didn’t Just Go To a Store,’ Says Source

When it came time to pick out an engagement ring for his girlfriend, model and America’s Got Talent judge, Heidi Klum, German musician Tom Kaulitz, knew it had to be special. So he got to work.

Tom drew the dream ring for Heidi and then went in search of the right stones,” a friend of Klum’s tells PEOPLE. “He didn’t just go to the store.

He knew Heidi’s favorite color was green, so he searched for the perfect green stone, an alexandrite, and then found the perfect diamonds to accentuate it,” says the friend.

Another reason that an alexandrite is so special? It changes color. The gem is green in sunlight and can appear red in lamplight making it that much more unique.

Kaulitz, 29, planned the surprise for Christmas Eve morning, and made sure Klum’s four children, Leni, 14, Henry, 13, Jonah, 12, and Lou, 9, played a part.

That morning, Kaulitz and the four kids surprised Klum, 45, with a breakfast tray, with coffee, flowers and a ring box, in her bedroom and he proposed.

She said ‘Yes’ right away!” says the friend.

Klum announced the happy new with an Instagram post, showing off her custom-made ring, along with the message in caps: “I SAID YES.

Heidi loved her ring so much,” says the friend. “It was truly made with love by Tom from beginning to end.

It will be the third marriage for Klum. “Her kids and everyone around her can feel the happiness and love coming from her,” says the friend.

The couple is “really enjoying their engagement,” says the friend. “Heidi believes in going with your heart and your gut and Tom is it!

How Heidi Klum Does Pool Party Chic (Spoiler: Stilettos and Swimsuits Are Key)

Heidi Klum kicked off the July 4th holiday at an epic poolside dance party in Atlantic City — and she served up some bikini styling tricks in the process.

The model joined DJ Kaskade for an epic two-hour set on Saturday at the grand opening of the Ocean Resort Casino HQ2 Beach Club in Atlantic City, New Jersey, wearing a pink-and-yellow striped bikini from her eponymous Heidi Klum Swim collection. And while she was at the pool, she styled the swimsuit like she was hitting the catwalk.

Klum teamed her bikini with a highlighter yellow Juan Carlos Obando silky duster jacket and matching pants, plus earrings and bangles courtesy of Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira Jewels and sky-high Casadei sandals.

I’ve never been to a party like this before,” Klum told PEOPLE at the event. “It’s so much fun. Everyone is so sweaty and everyone is having such a good time. We’ve been dancing non stop for the past two hours.

While Klum credits her complexion to drinking lots of water, Mario Bodesco face moisturizer and sunscreen, she said there is one beauty product she can’t live without: mascara.

Out of all the makeup products mascara is the most important, because as women we also talk with our eyes.

The model, who recently posed topless for Ocean Drive magazine, said she doesn’t do anything extra to prepare for photo shoots.

My confidence comes from realizing that we only have one life, and we have to enjoy this life that we have,” she said. “It doesn’t do it any good when you’re older one day and then you regret not doing all the things that you want to do.
