Paulina Porizkova revealed on the Late Late Show this week that she was fired from America's Next Top Model. She said the producers made it seem like she was let go because her ego was too big. Now she's just one among this nation's heaving unemployed throng in an increasingly cutthroat job market. So she's using the best asset in her job hunting arsenal — which is not a neat sheet of white paper with previous jobs listed on it or a Monster.com profile. It's dirt on one of this country's most fascinating employed individuals, Tyra Banks. Paulina told Access Hollywood:
“I must admit I was having a little bit of an issue with Tyra being late for every judging,” she told Billy [Bush]. “It’s six hours later and I feel like I am being told my time is not as valuable as hers. They pointed out that I should shut up and be grateful for the job and that Tyra is really busy.”
But Paulina didn't make it to the "top" — and land a seat on the America's Next Top Model judging panel — by letting people walk all over her.
“I think that my little hissy fits about ‘Well, we are all here on time. Why can’t she (Tyra)?’ didn’t go over all that well,” added Paulina, who replaced the previous judge, supermodel Twiggy.
Access Hollywood, asking the hard questions as usual, wondered if Tyra was jealous of Paulina, as the only other woman on the panel.
“I don’t think that in Tyra’s universe that’s even a consideration. I don’t think she cares,” she said. “I’m not even sure she was aware that I existed way out there in Siberia, much like I am not sure she knew Twiggy existed.”
Translation: Paulina and Tyra didn't have slumber parties and paint each other's nails off-camera.
“I wouldn’t know [what kind of person Tyra is] because all I know of her is literally when we are on set talking to each other in front of the cameras,” the supermodel said. “That is the only time she would speak to me.”
Dishy! This is possibly the best fallout from a single job loss in the recession. Now we just have to sit back and wait for Tyra's rebuttal. She'll probably devote an entire episode of her talk show to it. Maybe she'll have Paulina on the show like that time she had Naomi Campbell on the show just to make sure everyone knew who the real enemy in this industry was. In case you forgot, it wasn't Tyra.
