Tyra Fires Top Model Judge Paulina Porizkova

You don’t mess with Tyra Banks. She’s fired one of her America's Next Top Model judges Paulina Porizkova. Apparently Tyra and Paulina didn’t mesh well together, and she got the axe!

Paulina appeared on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson last night and dished on the details.

She told him, “Listen, do you know why I’m in Los Angeles? Because I’m looking for a job because I was fired from America’s Next Top Model on my birthday!”

Porizkova was the replacement for Twiggy on the show, and had only been on for one season. She went on to say, "The reason I was told I was fired was because, it seemed that America's Next Top Model has gotten too fat and they needed to cut some fat and the fat was me."

"So I figured it was either that or my gigantic huge ego. Which I wasn’t aware of until I was told by the producers that I have an ego problem."

No one’s ego can be as big as Tyra’s! That’s calling the kettle black! The CW and Tyra’s rep both had no comment about the firing, but confirmed that Paulina will not be on the show next season.
