LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Paulina Porizkova is out.
The supermodel told “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson that she has been fired from “America’s Next Top Model,” during an appearance on the CBS chat show Tuesday evening.
“Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles?… Because I am looking for a job,” Paulina told Craig.
Paulina claims she was axed by The CW reality show.
“I was fired by ‘America’s Next Top Model’ on my birthday,” she said.
Paulina’s birthday is April 9.
The supermodel, who has two sons with husband Ric Ocasek, formerly of The Cars, said she was let go from the show to lessen the load.
“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,” she said.
“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 added.
When contacted by Access Hollywood and asked if Paulina had been fired from the show, a rep for The CW would not confirm she was fired. The rep did reveal Paulina is “no longer” with “America’s Next Top Model.”
