Kate Upton Hated By Other Sports Illustrated Models? [PHOTOS]
Sexy actress and supermodel Kate Upton is definitely the "It Girl" of modelling industry at the moment
The 20-year-old blonde bombshell, whose racy Antarctic photo shoot landed her the much-coveted cover of SI's swimsuit issue for the second year in a row, is said to be hated by her fellow Sports Illustrated models.
Us Weekly cited an insider who said that "The SI models hate her. They are jealous, but Kate's also been a bitch to them."
In fact, relations are so chilly between Upton and the other models that they will not socialize with one another even when they're sitting just a few feet apart.
At a 1Oak party in Las Vegas on February 14, right after the cover's release, Upton kept to herself as the rest of the ladies chatted among themselves.
"She didn't interact with anyone," an onlooker says. "She wasn't friendly."
Kate Upton was recently named as the cover model of Sports Illustrated. She appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue first in 2011, when she was named Rookie of the Year. She posed as the cover model last year.
She braved the extremely cold weather and posed at the Antarctic with only a pair of bikini on. There were reports that the photoshoot for the cover endangered Kate Upton's health.

Kate Upton was born in Michigan and raised in Florida. She was first discovered after an equestrian competition in Florida and went to an open-call in Miami a few years later. “When Kate first came in, everyone at the agency thought I was crazy,” Ivan Bart, the “superagent” head of IMG Models, told The New York Times of Upton. “She wasn’t ‘fashion’ enough.”
Let Kate Upton seduce you in a new POV video that features nothing but her in a skimpy bikini top staring provocatively into the camera as she wiggles slowly for you in the sun.
Maybe it was the Baywatch inspired video or the clip of her performing the "Cat Daddy" dance in a revealing bikini, but both provocative videos were enough to send the Sports Illustrated model's popularity through the roof. The 20-year-old beauty made it to number three.
