“There’s no way to win for a woman. If you choose to do something about the shame that’s getting heaped on you, by fixing your face, then you’re going to get shamed for that– And if you don’t do it, you’re going to get shamed for that too.” – Paulina Porizkova


My guest today is none other than former model Paulina Porizkova. She just released her book No Filter: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful, and it was a page turner. I was up until 3 am reading it. It’s so good. 

I am so, so excited to share this beautiful, candid conversation with Paulina. We cover a lot of ground, from how Paulina’s childhood experiences influenced her relationship with Ric Ocasek to her thoughts on aging and the betrayal she experienced when Ric cut her out of his will. 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed speaking with Paulina.

  1. I also love Paulina and found this interesting. But honestly I wanted to hear from Paulina. There was way too much talking from Teri. I dislike when interviewers do so much of the talking that their guests are reduced to listening to them.
