Why did you decide to appear on "Basketball Wives LA"?
At the time I felt like it was a great opportunity to share the real me with the world.
Why do you think the women who were actually considered “wives’” appeared on the show?
The show is called basketball wives, so I guess they needed some sort of truth to the title.
What made you stand out on the show?
I believe they needed a non-married woman on the show for a dramatic effect. I just happened to be more young, charismatic, and attractive to the audience.
I wouldn't consider myself to be particularly close to anyone.
I don't care enough about any of them to dislike them. I just know who not to trust.
Why did everyone single you out and objectify you?
To be honest, I had no idea so much hate was taking place behind my back. No one was ever rude to my face without fully explaining how they felt, and it always caught me off guard because I thought I was being nice the whole time and I thought they liked me.
How did that make you feel?
I just don't want to grow old and bitter—ever!
I hear Jackie has reached out to you a few times.
She wants everyone to like her again. I'm just taking my time with that and not responding. I don't hate her by any means, there's just some dirt under the rug we have yet to clean.
What was the ultimate goal of the cast?
I guess they got exactly what they wanted, everyone to fight, and ratings go up. Followed by another season.
How did you feel about becoming everyone’s favorite lady on the show?
I had no idea it was going to turn out like that. I can't even believe how many people have turned into fans after this. I thank God everyday for that.
How do you feel other women identify with you?
I feel like there are way more single woman than there are married women, I think they're just happy that they found someone they can actually relate to on one of the infamous "Wives" shows.
Do you see yourself hosting your own show?
That is definitely in the blueprints we have scratched out for me.
What did you accomplish?
I got my story out there, gained respect, and became a career woman.
What’s next for you?
I’m keeping super busy with my bikini line MintSwim. Be on the look out for that.
What’s new with MintSwim?
The highly anticipated project is coming along smoothly.
Who’s wearing it?
Me, of course, and all of my amazing friends. I designed it for today's sexy girl who isn't afraid to show a little skin.
Where can we log on to buy it?
What’s your favorite Secret Kisses lip color?
There are so many I'm so in love with. I'm going to have to say: nude, sade, morning after, velvet, and rose gold.
Your last birthday bash in LA was insane. Who helped organize it?
My birthday was definitely a week to remember. I had help from some of Hollywood's most successful promoters like my boy, Braden, from LA's Finest.
Sex & Business
What percent of business approaches from urban model clients are without sex in mind?
I’m not sure. I just know those predators know who to try and who not to. I don't get tried.
How do you deal with those in business who you find attractive and will have sex with?
I have learned over the years to keep it professional. A lot of people are cute, but don't have the personalities to match. That makes them easy to resist.
Favorite place to be kissed:
My lips first, then my forehead.
