What The Divas Are Doing Now
Tyra tells us that of all the lessons to be learned on ANTM, the most difficult and valuable is learning how other people see you. More about Eva then? Oh no, it's Kelle. Come on, Kelle turned out to be awesome. Kelle tells us that she grew up in Seagate, the last gated community in New York. It doesn't look that glamorous at all. She confirms this when she says it's just like any other neighborhood. We see flashbacks of Kelle not being black enough. She says that when she saw the footage, she thought that perhaps there was a problem, and that she needed to step back and take some criticism. She says that it was one of the most humbling experiences of her life, and we flash back to her crying in the mirror on the day of "I was in denial about my snout. But now I know." Kelle says that she learned something from the experience, and grew up a few years.
We meet Kelle's mom. She says that Kelle took crap for being a spoiled, rich Oreo. She says that Kelle's worked very hard for everything she has, and hasn't been handed anything. LIE #34! I mean, come on. Kelle says that she's a full-time student at Hunter College, and works full-time for the online art gallery she owns and operates. We see her meeting with an artist and choosing a painting to sell on the site. She says that it's a lot of work, but fun to sell something she's truly passionate about. Kelle tells us that, whenever she has time, she goes around to modeling agencies. An agent tells her that her look would be good in television. She tells us that if she's not high-fashion enough for the agencies, that's fine, and genuinely seems to be at peace with the fact. She then says in her best valley girl voice that she did a shoot for Source magazine, and that the pictures were fantastic. We see the pictures, and she looks a little crazy and kind of like a whore. But "whore-like" is the new "good," so she's excited about them, and feels like she's making progress. Good for you, Kelle!
