4/11/2008 8:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Project Runway" diva judge Nina Garcia has been given her walking papers from her post at Elle magazine. You are out!
Nina Garcia
Up until today, Nina had been the Fashion Director at the women's monthly. Sources tell TMZ the environment at the New York offices of Elle is currently "nuts."

TMZ contacted reps at Lifetime -- "Project Runway's" new home -- and The Weinstein Company to see if her new freelance status will affect her fate on the series, but have not heard back.

Like a car accident on the side of the road...I view the pages of TMZ. But Really? She gets fired (which is definitely a worthy story for TMZ), but, the first thing TMZ does is call PR to ask about her status? WHY DID SHE GET FIRED? Oh course they're not going to have a comment, THEY JUST FOUND OUT! Seriously - you're better reporters than that. That's sensationalism, and we get enough of that in our nightly news programs.

OVER IT    

Project Runway should replace her with Lauren Conrad or perhaps Amanda Lepore.

Nina is great on Project Runway! Another fashion magazine will scoop her up in a NY heartbeat. -- editors at other mags are probably drooling right now over the prospects. Or she could start her own magazine. (And, the winning PR model will get a spread in that mag.)

I'd rather have Nina any day that Vogue-editrix Anna Wintour. She's the inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada.

Good luck Nina! She'll land on her feet in no time.

TMZ- Please get the insdie story on this. Someone in that office must be dying to talk. If Nina was wronged the public should know but if Nina was a soul-sucking witch the public should know that too. I want the REAl story here. PLEASE.

She DID come off as VERY SNOTTY,,,,and would quite often CONTRADICT herself....Sorry,but, what goes around, comes around Nina...Let them fill the spot in with guest DESIGNERS...NOT SNOTTY HIGH PAID MODELS, NOT STICK FIGURES WHO WORK FOR MAGAZNES, ...REAL DESIGNERS WHO HAVE ACTUALLY MADE PATTERNS, DESIGNED AND SEWN THEIR OWN CLOTHES...Sheesh...

I enjoy watching Nina on PR. It a shame she lost her job. You know the saying when one door closes another opens up. I hope she will stay on PR.
