If you were like me and had your head buried in some over-priced textbook last week, you're probably new to this whole Tyra/Paulina Porizkova. Well, it's not much of an ordeal considering it just consists of Tyra firing Paulina because she was totz jealous and, well, Paulina going on national television and calling Tyra out for unprecedented amount of hating. Sounds good right? It is!
Last week on the Late Late Show, Paulina ripped Tyra a new one. "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," said the former ANTM judge. Not to be outdone or more importantly left looking bad, Tyra released the following statement yesterday:
"The current state of the economy has forced shows to make major budget cuts industry wide. America's Next Top Model is not immune to these financially challenging times. We've had to make significant cuts in every area of the production and, unfortunately, Paulina was a casualty of these cuts. Tyra, who pursued Paulina to join the show as a judge multiple times, was incredibly saddened by the decision the show was forced to make. We really enjoyed working with Paulina, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors."
As far as whose telling the truth in this whole mess, I have no idea. Claims of Tyra being a diva and jealous of Paulina are just as credible as Paulina getting shwn the door solely because of budget cuts. One thing is for certain, though: Paulina, you will be missed. It was real while it lasted.
