But it's funny, because I'm sitting in a room in a meeting with [corporate co-workers] and I'm thinking in my head, if they only knew what my real life is. I look at life the opposite way. I work in a nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights and I do Tae Kickboxing, and that to me is the real world and the professional side is fake.
Pamie: Okay, so, what about Baby Norman getting called back?
Jangela: I, too, am really surprised that Baby gets called back. She was so anti-social with all the girls during the auditions and kind of walking around and, um, it almost seemed like it was calculated where towards the end she started buttering up towards the girls, like she knew she was going to be judged for not being accepted by the other girls -- and I'm not saying this to be mean or catty -- but no one liked her at the auditions because she wouldn't talk to us. We were all singing and dancing or bonding or whatever, and there's a clip in one of the tapes where one of the field directors is telling the girls that half of us are going to be cut that day, and if you notice, Baby's all by herself in a corner, there, and all the other girls are together.
It's so easy to mistake it for me being catty or jealous. It really just surprises me. I think we tried calling her once to see if she heard anything. It's weird because on the show they show her, she was so off-key all the time and she was running around singing and being off-key when she ran around singing and really rubbed everyone the wrong way. She looks different in real life than on camera. Like, if you lined her up with everyone else and you were just going off a vibe or whatever else, that girl had it. There's something about her that's like: "She has it." Whatever it is. She had it. And after the auditions the Atlanta girls just had these horrible rumors that she was a stripper at the Gold Club in Atlanta and I don't even know if it's true or what. That Prince wrote a song about her, and I think we called to find out if it's all true. That Prince gave her this leather vest and she doesn't wear leather, that she's a vegetarian, whatever.
Pamie: Were there rumors about you?
Jangela: Someone found pictures of me at work at a nightclub and I'm wearing a Playboy T-shirt and bunny ears and someone found them but I was just goofing around at work bored one night. And that girl Alexandra -- there are some very revealing pictures of her. It's clear that she's modeling or whatever, but she's not wearing much in them, so clearly she's older than she said she was at the audition, for her to be modeling that way. It's amazing how much dirt people will look for. I just don't know where they find the time to find that.
