Jai says Queer Eye cast “haven’t been asked back for 2007,” but Bravo says a “new season is slated for 2007”

Queer Eye cast member Jai Rodriquez has confirmed rumors that the show may not return after this season ends.

Jai tells After Elton that the Fab Five “haven’t been asked back for 2007. Maybe this is how we are going out with a bang.” He’s referring to last night’s episode, which featured the makeover of a transgendered man. Of that, he says, “to be honest, I am shocked they let us do it.”

As to the future of the series, Jai notes that “[e]veryone has big new projects. I’m working on a TV show and a movie in the fall.” When the cast moves on to “new projects,” that doesn’t bode well for their old project.

Nor does telling off your boss. While Jai says Bravo’s “programming is fantastic,” he says, “Queer Eye made Bravo. If they don’t recognize that, they’re idiots.”

Update: Bravo has released a statement, saying in part, “A whole new season is slated for 2007. ‘Queer Eye’ remains the core of our Tuesday night strategy.”
