The Queen of Bad Pops Off
TWoP: You do have a lot of confidence and you're very secure in who you are. Do you see yourself as a role model now for some women out there?
TT: Oh boy. Dan, you'll get me in trouble. [laughs] Yes and no. Because when I do something good it's like, "Yes, follow me!" But I'm human and I'm still a bad girl, so I'm gonna mess up. Believe you me, I got black people saying to me, "You are a very bad example. You represent black women in a bad way." I did a radio interview where a guy came on said that to me and I said to him, "I'm very sorry that you feel that way, but I was not trying to represent the whole entire African-American race." I just represent Tanisha. I was being me and I'm really sorry if you guys have a problem with that. But yes, now as I've changed and come to think before I act, I would definitely say I see myself as a role model. Definitely.
TWoP: You're now a reality TV personality. You can't go back to your regular life, can you? What's next for you?
TT: I'm doing real estate in the city. So I want to see where that takes me. That's not really exciting, but what's funny is that some of the clients are actually recognizing me. And I hope to make it to the big screen someday and meet a wonderful agent who will help take my career to that next step where I want it to be.
TWoP: It seems now that almost everyone who is on a reality show ends up on another reality show. Is that an avenue that you want to pursue or do you want to do real acting?
TT: I really want to do real acting. It's always been my dream. It really has. So I want to get some things together and see where that goes. It's all about who's gonna say yes to me. I want the world to be ready for somebody who's not your average star. I'm not a size two to eight, I'll never, ever be. I don't have the big fake boobs although I secretly do want to get them done.
