The supermodel made the shocking announcement that she has been fired from Tyra Bank’s ANTM judges panel — on her birthday (April 9) no less -during an appearance on CBS’ Late Late Show.
Tyra won’t be pleased about this little revelation.
“Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles?… Because I am looking for a job,” Paulina told host Craig Ferguson. “I was fired by ‘America’s Next Top Model’ on my birthday,” she said.
“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,” Paulina blabbed, bitterly spilling the beans on her impromptu depature.
“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,” she later said, adding that Tyra’s people let her go during a conversation over the phone.
Paulina replaced ’60s fashion icon and runway trendsetter Twiggy as a judge on The CW’s fashion reality competition earlier this year. The winner of the current cycle of ANTM will be revealed on Wednesday’s show.
