Paulina Porizkova has been officially let go from America’s Next Top Model. The network confirmed the news after Paulina told Craig Ferguson on The Late Show that she was in L.A. because she was looking for a new job. Keep reading for more details…
“Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles… because I am looking for a job,” Porizkova told Craig Ferguson. “Because I was fired by America’s Next Top Model on my birthday, they timed it well.” “[Who fired me] doesn’t matter, somebody fired me,” Porizkova said when Ferguson asked if Tyra Banks had been the person. Paulina added that she was told over the phone and the show’s producers had told her she had “an ego problem.”
“But the reason I was fired, just to be fair here, the reason I was told I was fired was because, it seemed that America’s Next Top Modelhad gotten too fat and they needed to cut some fat and the fat was me,” Porizkovasaid. “It’s not that I was too fat, I was ‘the fat. So I figured it was either that — I think that was a nice way of putting it and it could have been either that or my gigantic huge ego, which I wasn’t aware of before I was told by the producers that I have an ego problem. But Tyra… I really believe that just felt they didn’t need me, which of course they don’t, so that’s okay,” she added.
