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.
Pamie: It looked like the last part of each audition was this separate audition. Like in Dallas sometimes the girls were just auditioning in a room with three other girls. Were some girls auditioned separately because of their agents?
Jangela: Yeah. And there was this one girl, Crystal, she's been in a lot of the commercials. She's got an incredible voice and there was this girl that kind of befriended her at the audition and the girl just cut down every girl at the audition, and this girl came dressed as a prostitute and she didn't even make it through the first cut. But there were girls that had their music teachers with them that somehow found out about the auditions.
Pamie: Did every girl bring her parents and her best friend?
Jangela: Not really. Most came by themselves. Very few the first day brought anyone with them. You really didn't know what to expect.
Pamie: But you auditioned in front of everyone.
