Bell Media, which now owns the program, did not give a reason as to why the show was cancelled but confirmed the production of the show had been suspended. Beker took to her own twitter account to let her fans know of the decision.

This may be a hard blow for Canada’s Queen of fashion, but don’t think for a second Jeanne Beker has lost her crown.

She also has a fashion line EDIT: By Jeanne Beker sold exclusively at The Bay, writes a weekly column for The Toronto Star and the respect of budding fashionista’s all over globe. Cheers to Jeanne for an amazing 27 years of fashionable tv and for inspiring these two young gents to pursue their fashion dreams in the form of a blog.
