“Tyra said she thought I wanted to do music more than modeling, which was completely untrue! I thought I was too short to be a model until I got the opportunity to be on the show. When I arrived in L.A., filming wasn’t what I thought it would be. I was stressed and wasn’t feeling the idea anymore so I didn’t ‘bring it.’ I told some of the crew I’d be more excited if I saw a hotdog and I ended up getting booted. I still love Tyra, though. She’s crazy beautiful.”
