Talk about unrealistic standards.
Hottie Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova has been under intense scrutiny and faced some tough criticism lately. Apparently, the thin model gained some weight last year.
The Brazilian media even criticized the 24 year-old in June for her supposed "cellulite and love handles" after walking in the Sao Paulo Fashion Week. They also called her "too fat" after she walked in the Victoria's Secret lingerie show in Miami last November.
In order to get "slim" for the lingerie show, Kurkova has said she dieted on mainly fresh veggies, protein, and salad.
And, even before last November's show, a source said she cut out all carbs and worked out for hours in order to get slimmer like the other Victoria's Secret models. The friend says, "She was exhausted and didn’t get down to where she wanted to be."
In fact, Kurkova almost didn't make it into the VS show due to her weight, they claim. It wasn't until the last minute that they decided to include her. That explains why her name wasn't on any of the pre-show press materials.
But, according to another insider, it seems her weight "problems" are attributed to the ever popular thyroid disorder which is said to mess with her metabolism.
Forbes states Kurkova is currently the eighth highest-paid supermodel in the world. So she's obviously doing something right!
We think Karolina needs to have a sitdown with Tyrannosaurus, on her show - of course!
