Paulina Porizkova’s Unflattering Remarks About Tyra Banks

Tyra BanksUPDATE: The show’s executive producer claims Paulina was simply let go due to the economy.

Those who regularly follow know one thing: Paulina Porizkova is not afraid to speak her mind. Unfortunately for Tyra Banks, the recently fired judge is just as candid off-camera.

During an earlier chat with Craig Ferguson, Paulina implied that her former boss wasn’t the nicest person in the world. Now, in a new interview with Access Hollywood, Porizkova is dishing on the specifics.

Although she claimed to be unaware of her “ego problem,” the former supermodel does fess up to having a problem with one thing: tardiness. “I must admit I was having a little bit of an issue with Tyra being late for every judging. 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,” Paulina stated. “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.”

So was this a conversation she felt like she could have with the talk show hostess? Maybe. If she ever saw her. “I’m not even sure she was aware that I existed way out there in Siberia, much like I am not sure she knew existed,” Porizkova said. “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. That is the only time she would speak to me.”
