Tyra Banks blames poor economy on firing Paulina Porizkova from ‘America’s Next Top Model’

By Kimberley Foster on May 20th, 2009

tyrabanks_paulinaporizkova_fired.jpgHas Paulina Porizkova become just another victim of the global economic crisis? That is what Tyra Banks is citing after the Czech model was fired as judge on America’s Next Top Model. The only problem is that Paulina doesn’t quite see it that way.

She revealed on the Late Late Show that she was fired because it was suggested that she had a big ego. She then insinuated on Access Hollywood that behind-the-scenes Tyra is a diva, who was consistently late to set and only spoke to her in front of the cameras. Now, Tyra has responded to the claims by releasing the following statement:

“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.”

America’s Next Top Model recap

By Andrea Thatcher on February 27th, 2008


The decibal level of America’s Next Top Model is enough to make me want to turn off the television the first time anything that could be remotely construed as exciting happens, because all the girls start screaming their heads off.

The girls’ new loft wasn’t as exciting as that reveal usually is in reality shows. I’m wondering if the price of real estate in New York was prohibitive for the show, or if they really wanted to give the girls the feel of a model apartment. How about a bunch of girls having to sleep in the same bed? Is this the ANTM equivelant of the ubiquitous Real World hot tub?

America’s Next Top Model recap

By Andrea Thatcher on February 20th, 2008


The first episode of Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model is typically the hardest for me to watch – it’s maximum hype and minimal fashion, you haven’t identified with any of the girls yet, and there’s a lot of crazy antics. Oh, and someone always tries to rap.

Despite the edgy black and white dominatrix-themed advertising for the 10th cycle, this episode started out with a peppy preppy school-girl motif with the girls attending “Top Model Prep” and a faux pep rally with past favorite contestants cheerleading.

The school-girl idea certainly isn’t new, but since they’re on the same network it really smacks of trying to cash in on Gossip Girl’s popularity with the fash pack. But these uniforms were cheap looking, not posh. Instead of stimulating creativity amongst the hopefuls to try and stand out, it just drowned them in sameness.
