Having braved an early elimination from Dancing with the Stars and been fired from America's Next Top Model because of her "gigantic huge ego," Paulina Porizkova paid a price.
As a result of these circumstances, the former supermodel now reveals, she suffered anxiety attacks – and the prescribed antidepressant, Lexapro, took a toll of its own on her, she reveals in a self-penned editorial on The Huffington Post.
Admitting that such factors as her brief DWTS stint in 2007 stoked her panic attacks ("[I] just couldn't figure out what I had done wrong to be so disliked"), Porizkova, 46, writes that she turned to the drug at her doctor's suggestion.

First General Motors, then Chrysler, now Paulina Porizkova.
"The current state of the economy has forced shows to make major budget cuts industry wide," says America's Top Model executive producer Ken Mok, in a joint statement with Tyra Banks released Monday. "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."
As Porizkova herself announced May 12, she was let go from her job as a judge on the show after one year.

America's Next Top Model ends its current cycle on Wednesday night – and it will also be the last show for judge Paulina Porizkova.
The supermodel says she has been fired from Tyra Banks's reality competition series. During an appearance on The Late Late Show Tuesday night, Porizkova told host Craig Ferguson, "Listen, do you know why I am in Los Angeles ... because I am looking for a job."
