RNO: When you were standing with Naima in front of Tyra, did you know that it was going to be you eliminated, or did you think that you still had a chance?
Brittany: Yeah, I knew it was me. I mean, the week before I was left standing with Christina. Itís kind of like I pulled a Lluvy. She was there three times in front of the judges, and I was there on week two with Sara, then with Christina and then with Naima. Itís like Ė three strikes and your out. At that point I knew I was done for.
RNO: Did you find the male models in the shoot to be as flirtatious as Keenyah did, or do you think she might have been overreacting a little?
Brittany: I didnít see Keenyah do her shoot, so I donít know what was going on with her and the male models. Personally, I thought the guys were just doing their thing, and it didnít help that I was so much taller than they were, so I didnít see them anyway. Plus, I was in heels, which made me even taller. I know that Keenyah is a very competitive person, so if something was bugging her that much that she had to stop her shoot, then they might have crossed a line, but I donít knowÖ I guess it all has to do with how you feel.
RNO: A running theme from this season was your resemblance to Janice Dickinson. Have you ever been told you look like her before you were on the show, and did you see the resemblance?
Brittany: I had never been told that I look like Janice, but when I got to the semi finals, all the judges were telling me that right away. Then I started hearing it all through the season. It didnít really bother me at all since I love Janice and I think sheís great. I try not to say that I look like anyone, since I am my own person, but itís a great compliment. I hope I look the way she does when Iím her age.
RNO: Did anyone ever sit Keenyah down and explain to her that Naima is half black? It didn't look like she even cared to hear it.
Brittany:Ehh, Iím not really sure. I think I stated my opinion on that during the show. Iím not really all that comfortable talking about it, but that was for them two to handle. I just think everyone was stressed at that point and homesick as well, so every little thing was bound to get on someone elseís nerves.
RNO:Where do you plan to go from here? Is modeling still something you want to pursue as a career?
Brittany:Oh, I definitely want to stick with modeling. Iíve said since I was little that I wanted to either be a model or an actress. I wouldnít have gone through this whole modeling boot camp experience if I didnít want to continue on this path. Other wise it would have been a big waste of time. This is definitely what I want to do.
RNO:What kind of advice would you give to girls that were thinking about applying for future seasons of the show?
Brittany: For girls that are thinking about applying for this show Ė just remember to be true to who you are. Donít change and know that person that you are. There are always adjustments that can be done, and things to learn in the industry, but donít get catty and turn into a diva. Itís meant to be a fun experience!
RNO: Thanks, Brittany!
