Last night, former supermodel Paulina Porizkova revealed that she got booted from her position as judge on “America’s Next Top Model.” Producers told her that she had an ego problem and had to go. They gave Paulina the news on her birthday over the phone. [KansasCity.com] Ego problem? They have met Tyra Banks, right? Paulina is hardly the first supermodel judge to strut her stuff out the “Top Model” door.
|Former “America’s Next Top Model” Judges|
|Sixties fashion icon Twiggy Lawson left “Top Model” in 2007 due to “scheduling conflicts.” [SFGate.com] — We aren’t sure what those could be, since this chick is super wealthy and doesn’t need to do anything but look fab and jetset around the world.|
|After four seasons, self-proclaimed “first supermodel” Janice Dickinson was asked to leave. The 53-year-old was a notorious witch-with-a-b, has a filthy mouth, and even talked smack about Tyra: “She’s not my favorite person.” [MSNBC] — Janice your “not favorite person” is responsible for you being famous.|
|Baby Phat designer Kimora Lee Simmons started modeling when she was 13. She was a judge on “Top Model” in 2003 and must have loved the world of reality TV because a few years later she launched “Life in the Fab Lane.” [E! Online] — Are all supermodels this obsessed with themselves?|
The real question: What model will the show snatch up for its judging panel next? Here’s who we hope to see gracing the screen next season:
- Supermodel Kate Moss is working a “no-holds barred” account of her life for Virgin Books that will most likely address her alleged drug use, as well as her rocky relationship with notorious bad boy Pete Doherty. Moss made a splash after she was pictured topless on a yacht in Monaco with a billionaire and his wife. [Telegraph] — She could mentor the show’s young models: sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. What could make for better television?
- Naomi Campbell is controversy city. She has admitted to battling drug addiction and did community service in 2007 after assaulting her assistant. [Vogue] — There’s a chance she might throw a phone at one of the models, but at least she’d be entertaining.
- With her bleach-blond boy-cut, Agyness Deyn is the opposite of most of the preppy, long-haired gals that usually appear on “Top Model.” She likes math, and did a shoot that required her to spend the whole day jumping off a New York fire escape naked. [Guardian] — We know this gal would probably make Tyra’s head explode, but we want her anyway.
So, who do you want to be the next “Top Model” judge?
