See when I say Trya and her crew are evil, in short reality tv is built that way, I bet you a whole bunch of tv executives just come together and decide whom they want to win and then instruct Tyra and her ant farm on how to work on making others look bad on camera through the editing process, that is why they never produce really successful models off of that kpako show.

Nnenna' FORT interview was really insightful. She pretty much confirms what I thought all along about the Brooke incident.


Quote:
Now we get to Brooke, and I just want to know how you feel about that comment Brooke made in a “confessional,” something along the lines of If she likes Africa so much why doesn’t she go back there?

First of all, I just want to say: I thought Brooke looked adorable in everything she did. I never singled her out as “the weak one.”

Before I even saw the episode, when I saw the preview commercials and they showed me laughing when Brooke was making mistakes, I emailed Brooke immediately. I said, Brooke, I just want to let you know, Miss Jay made a lot of faces, whenever anybody would go up and do something wrong, he would make faces. And I’m one of those people that is one of the first ones to laugh, and I’m working on that. I saw Miss Jay’s face and I started laughing, I never laughed at Brooke. Miss Jay stirred up most of my laughter. I emailed Brooke and told her that.

Then, after I saw the episode, I was taken aback. I won’t pretend I wasn’t offended by that statement. After I saw that, I was still offended, and I wrote Brooke again. I said, you know Brooke, I’m not going to pretend that I wasn’t hurt by what you said, but I know you didn’t mean it in a harsh way. So don’t even worry about it. And we made peace. That was it, and that was the end of that.

This has been a huge argument on our site ever since the episode aired. People really want to know what happened.

I guess what the thing was that at the beginning of the episode, I said, “Coming to America gave me hope,” which to me means that America is a better place for me, it’s the land with more opportunity. I never said, “Africa is better, Africa is so much better.” I never once thought that I was any better than anyone else in that competition. So I don’t know where she got the impression that I think that Africa is so much better that she would say, “Go back.” I guess it just seemed out of place. I really didn’t understand, but I guess she was stressed, it was a stressful environment. I made mistakes in the competition, there are certain things that I wish I did differently; I feel it was probably the same for Brooke.

So I told her, “I know you didn’t mean that,” even though I was kind of hurt when I first heard it, and we’re fine. It is in the past.

She talks about jade:



Okay, I’m going to read off some names of the other women in the house, and if you could, I’d like you to tell me what you thought of them in a sentence or two.

Jade: I admire Jade as a friend, but I also think she’s a very strong person. Just from my perspective, I admire her strength. And I know the portrayal that she’s had so far has got a lot of people against her, but to be honest with you, that wasn’t the impression of her that I got in the house. If I saw the same point of view that the audience is receiving, maybe it would have been different, but that’s not what I saw. Jade cooked for all the girls every other night. There was never a dull moment with her. She was always just joking around, I was always laughing because she always had something silly to say. I didn’t take her seriously, and I never saw her as a malicious person. It’s just unfortunate that the negative has been highlighted, and of course it’s quite easy to know what the audience will think of her.

What was your impression of Jade’s tears in front of the judges: fake or not?

I didn’t have that impression that she was faking it. I felt really bad. I know on television, you see her crying and then they cut immediately to the end, where she’s no longer crying, so easily, that looks very fake. My boyfriend is in the production world, actually, and he edits, so he fills me in on a lot of stuff. So I’m not surprised at the response she’s getting. You don’t see the entire crying scene, you just see her starting to cry then it flashes to the end where she’s not crying anymore, and of course it looks that way. I don’t want to be like, everybody thinks Jade was this or that and just go along with it. From my point of view, I didn’t think she was faking it.

This is a pretty long post but here is more about her time on the show:



Q) Who is your favorite designer?

A) My favorite designer would have to be Dolce and Gabbana. I love them because I've seen their clothing and I've liked everything of their's!

Q) Why did you decide to apply for the show?

A) I thought this would be the best way to learn a lot in the shortest amount of time and get exposure, as well.
Q) Have you maintained your new look?

A) My hair has grown out a little bit. My hair is now about the same length as Jade's was on the show. I intend to keep it growing until maybe I am signed with an agency and if they need me to shave it again, I will. Until then, I am just going to leave it up to the client or whomever I am working with to determine however they want my look.

Q) What did you learn the most from Rachel McAllister and the interview process?

A) I learned that I have to be ready for questions that are thrown at you. You have to learn the most positive way to answer the question. You have to try to focus on the positive more than the negative.

Q) What do you think it was that gave the writer the impression you were snobbish?

A) I have no idea! I wish I had the chance to ask him, I would have. I don't know why he thought I was snobbish.

Q) Why do you think the judges chose Faronda over you?

A) I think the judges chose Faronda because she showed more improvement and growth throughout the competition, comparing her from the first time she came into the competition and up to that point.

Q) Did you write anyone a note when you left and if so, to whom and what did you say?

A) I didn't have a chance to write a note. I gave everyone a note when I left and I said, "Good luck."

Q) After the show, did you clear the air with Brooke?

A) Oh yeah! We've cleared the air, made peace and we've put it in the past!

Q) Are you and John still together?

A) Yes, we're working things out.

Q) How did it feel winning the majority of the challenges?

A) I felt blessed because I got the chance to receive some of the best gifts such as the clothes from Nanette Lepore and the ring. I was just very grateful!

Q) What was the most difficult aspect of the mermaid photo shoot?

A) The most difficult part for me was that the harness around my stomach was so tight. My stomach was aching so bad and I was upside-down. I was just in a lot of pain!

Q) What was the best part of your time in Thailand?

A) After I was eliminated, I spent two weeks in Thailand. I ate a lot of good Thai food and got one hour full body massages for like ten dollars! It is an inexpensive place to go shopping and I got to see the city. I learned a lot about the culture and it was just fun! It was the best vacation I ever had in my life. I enjoyed it!

Q) Who do you think will win "America's Next Top Model" this season?

A) I have no idea! It's a great group of girls left. The top five girls all have great potential. They are all great competitors and it's anybody's game at this point.

Q) Who do you stay in touch with from the show?

A) I stay in touch with Faronda, Jade, Gina, Sara and I've written Brooke. I've emailed almost everyone from the show back and forth.

Q) What are you going to do now that you are no longer on the show?

A) I intend to go out to New York, shoot with as many photographers as possible and, hopefully, get picked up by an agent that's interested in me to market.

Q) What would you like to say to your fans and supporters?

A) I am thankful! I didn't expect to get as much fan response as I did. I know the show said I was a bit snobbish, but I am absolutely not. I never thought I was better than anybody. I am just thankful that I made it in the top six and got to travel to Bangkok. I appreciate all of the fans! I really do!

She kinda sounds stalkerish the way she keeps e-mailing Brooke back and forth, I mean, dude give it up already...I wish her the best though in her career.
