Paulina Porizkova claims she was fired from "America's Next Top Model" on her birthday, over the phone, and told she had a big ego.

Talking to Craig Ferguson Tuesday night, the supermodel said she'd been pink slipped from the CW reality show hosted by Tyra Banks, on which she has been a judge.

"Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles? Because I am looking for a job, because I was fired by 'America's Next Top Model' on my birthday," Paulina told Craig.

"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," Paulina recounted. "So I figured it was either that or my gigantic huge ego. Which I wasn't aware of before I was told by the producers that I have an ego problem."
