What The Divas Are Doing Now
Next is Magdalena. Who? Exactly. Oooh. She is rough-looking, and also twenty-five. She tells us that she went back to school and is finishing up her last year. When she's done, she's pursuing modeling, because that's what she wants to do. She says she was so nervous for the one minute that she was on the show, and that it sucks being the first one eliminated. She says that she doesn't think it will negatively affect her modeling career, and that, if anything, it helps by putting her foot in the door, since people have seen her for "a couple seconds." And on that note, the segment ends. It was exactly forty-six seconds long.
Julie! Oh, I loved her so. She says that little girls come up to her and say that she looks like the girl from ANTM and she says to them, "I get that a lot." Julie jokes that, as the only Indian, she thought had the competition in the bag. She says that she thinks she would have done better if she hadn't told the judges that she wanted to start a manufacturing company. Flashback to Janice grilling her. Lots of people have come up to Julie and told her she was an idiot. She agrees that there is a wrong time and place to be honest. The U.S. government supports that position. She tells us that she's going to finish up her associate arts degree at a community college. Not that there's anything wrong with a community college. Then she's planning to go to New York for an internship at a manufacturing company, and also model on the side. She tells us we haven't seen the last of "Curry Mama." LIE #31, unless they're planning yet another Season 3 special.
And then there's Leah. She has a new, blonde hair with bangs and looks a little bit like Kim Cattrall but with scarier eyes. We see footage of her elimination, and she says that nobody likes to be cut and that it's hard to be critiqued. She was clearly freaked out by the whole process of judging, and the fact that America was watching. She says that she's definitely going to pursue modeling, and a suddenly brown-haired and shaggy-banged Leah goes on her first professional shoot. She's most concerned about her "soccer mom" image, so she's tried to change little things. For example, she's committed to wearing fewer clothes. Someone takes photos of her in underwear. And, of course, the shoot is for FHM. I'm surprised there haven't been more of these, actually. The feature in FHM is on "hometown honeys," which she thinks is great, because she's from Norman, Oklahoma. There's nothing that shows hometown pride like getting oiled up and posing in your skivvies. She's nervous and awkward on the shoot, but her body is awesome. She says that ANTM has definitely changed her, but it's for the good (LIE #32!), and she likes it.
