Paulina Porizkova -- 'Top Model' judge axed from show

Paulina Porizkova is out of a job.
Paulina Porizkova, who's been a contant presence on America's Next Top Model, has been canned from Tyra Banks' reality show competition, apparently the victim of a boring 12th season.

She revealed the news while appearing on Craig Ferguson's late night talk show, saying she was fired for her 44th birthday.

From an article here on Zimbio:
The former supermodel - who reigned supreme in the 1980s - told Craig Ferguson last night that she'd been fired from her judging gig on the ultra-camp modeling competition, America's Next Top Model.

"Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles?" Porizkova joked. "Because I was fired by America's Next Top Model on my birthday." Porizkova turned 44 on April 9.

Paulina apparently didn't know the exact reason for her dismissal:

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.

While the current cycle of ANTM has fallen flat, it hardly seems fair to pin the mundanity on Porizkova, the show's fourth supermodel judge. Judges Kimora Lee, Janice Dickinson, and Twiggy were all unable to hold on to the spot for more than a few years.
