All joking aside, I'm not quite sure where this negative attitude towards European women stems from, but I'm sure it has something to do with the comments made by returning North American servicemen who "visited" Europe starting in the early 1900s for WWI.
Hygiene standards have of course evolved since then (I have first-hand knowledge of this having lived and visited Europe several times) but, like all negative stereotypes, this one is slow to change.
