RNO: Personally, I feel that you, being a mother and a wife, made the right decision in not doing the shoot. However, do you still feel that you did, or did you have second thoughts once you were eliminated and let it sink in?
Anna: Thank you very much, Phil. I look back on it now and still feel that I would not change a thing that I did. I wanted to set an example and be a role model, and I feel that I accomplished that.
RNO: Do you still keep in contact with the other girls, or on the flip side, is there anyone you don’t really care to keep in contact with?
Anna: Well, I would like to stay in contact with all the girls. They were such a fun group of people to be around. Right now, we are not allowed to exactly “hang out” but I do occasionally talk to most of them.
RNO: Did you find it odd that Tyra would say they were looking for “all types of models” but when the doors were shut, Janice went on and on about how all she wanted was tall and skinny? Oh, and what’s the deal with this whole plus size thing? I thought you were pretty skinny!
Anna: I know that is what Tyra was saying the whole time, but as far as Janice goes, that is just Janice and you can bet her opinion is going to be off the wall. She wanted tall and skinny, and that was her stance. As far as plus sizes, from what I understand, size 10 is normally considered plus. I’m a size 8, so since I was so close to a 10, they just considered me “plus size.”
RNO: Did your husband and son watch the show? What did they think?
Anna: They watched it and loved every minute of the hour. They were very supportive during the whole experience and I’m glad we could sit down and watch it together.
RNO: Who did you feel should have been eliminated this episode, not including yourself? Do you think Jenascia’s lateness should have compensated for you not doing the shoot?
Anna: I honestly can’t say. Each of the girls was so different and had different personalities. As far as Jenascia being late, I have thought about it. However, I feel they really didn’t have a clear understanding as to why I was not doing the shoot, so just decided that I was the one to go.
RNO: Do you have any plans to continue trying to follow a modeling career?
Anna: Oh, I definitely want to try and continue following a modeling career. It is in my heart to model and has always been my dream, so I don’t plan on quitting. My family is very supportive, and as long as they are behind me, I will follow my dream.
RNO: Is there anything you would like to add or fill us in on, maybe something we didn’t get to see?
Anna: Nothing really, they showed all the important things. However, I do want to encourage mothers and young women to keep their dreams close to their heart and even if you have to put them on hold for awhile, remember they are there. Keep positive, and things will happen.
RNO: Anna, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to answer our questions. You did an amazing job on the show and came across as classy and a very good role model to mothers and married women everywhere.
Anna: Thanks so much Phil, this was fun!
