RNO: Okay, so admit it – you would have sold that $40,000 bracelet if you won it!
Felicia: Ha! I don’t know! Whitney let me put the bracelet on and it was so cold, and icy. All I could think was “Oh my God!” It was crazy. If I had won it, I probably would have just stared at it for a very long time.
RNO: When you were standing with Dionne in front of the judges, did you have a feeling you were going to be eliminated or based on critiques, did you think you would be staying?
Felicia: Half of me thought I was going home because I had the worst photo for the week, but the other half figured I had a good chance of staying since my other three photos were good. I was beyond shocked when I was eliminated though, and when they called Dionne’s name, the only thing I could hear in my head was “Are you kidding me?! You can’t be serious!” I mean, I would have been just as sad if Dionne left because we were so close, but it was me, so of course I was more sad!
RNO: Is there anyone specific you are pulling for now that you have been eliminated? Who do you think has been showing the most potential?
Felicia: Oh, that would be Dionne – that’s my buddy! We were the closest and she was like my sister. Jael and I got close too though, and if Dionne doesn’t win, I’d love to see Jael take it.
RNO: You have a choice: You’re either stuck in a room with Renee crying on the phone for an hour or Brittany complaining and crying about her weave for two hours. Which do you choose?
Felicia: Brittany – no doubt! At least I can help Brittany with her hair, which I did while we were there. With Renee, I would be stuck and the reason I’d be stuck with her is probably because we were arguing. Someone would get hit in the end.
RNO: Wait, was there more animosity with you and Renee that we didn’t get to see?
Felicia: There was some. I remember this one time, while we were in the limo, I was asleep and had a headache. We were waiting on the crew and when they finally arrived, we were getting out of the limo and Renee pushed me in the back or tugged on my jacket or something. I turned around and said to her “Girl, if you don’t shut up and stop talking to me…” We just didn’t get along.
RNO: What are your immediate plans after the show finishes airing? Do you plan on continuing to pursue a modeling path?
Felicia: Oh yeah, I want to move to LA and pursue modeling. Houston is home, and I love it there, but LA is hot. I really love it here and I’d love to try and get into modeling out here, that’s a definite.
RNO: What are your other goals for the future and what do you want to do if modeling doesn’t end up working out in the long run?
Felicia: Well, I do dance and have hip-hop training. I love all kinds of dance, but hip-hop is one of those things I do when I get mad to blow off steam or just work out, so I could always get involved in that. However, I don’t see modeling not working out. Modeling could always lead to other things like acting, clothing or even a shoe line. I’m just taking this as they go!
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add or say to fans of the show?
Felicia: I want to thank three people in particular. My boyfriend, his sister and his mom, Barbara. The three of them are the most important people to me and really pushed for me and rooted me on. I owe a lot to them! Thank you everyone though that was rooting for me!
RNO: Thanks, Felicia! I think you’re going to do great – I had you picked for my final three!
Felicia: Ha! I’ve been getting that all day! Thanks, Phil.Phil Kural is an office manager at a law firm, and graduated from Temple University with a degree in journalism. You can send feedback to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
