Models I Like year in models part #1

2006 was an interesting year for modeling, with many ups and downs; here are some of the many things which I remember in the world of models in 2006!

Urban model of the year:Angel Based on my own personal opinion and the fact that she went so far so fast, the model of the year would be Angel. I first saw her as Lola on One Model Place, and she just became an overnight sensation, appearing on magazine covers, in all the videos from G-Unit and she easily took the Eye Candy of the Year award in XXL Magazine. She also appeared on the cover of Smooth GirlMagazine, in the magazine Hustlenomics and in many videos and other magazines.Im sure that there will be no stopping this amazing and beautiful young model. She was in the Lloyd Bank's "Hands Up", "Cake" , Busta's "In the Ghetto", and Young Buck's "I Know You Want Me."

2)The three Beautys on Flavor of Love:On the "Flavor of Love #2, most of the contestants were really rough around the edges. Alot of the contestants were ones that nobody would pick; they were scraggly and kept for entertainment purposes. I was thinking, why did he keep the albino on the show; that was a big mystery to me! Deelishis is cool, but I was really sad to see the three contestants I called the "Three Beautys": Bootz, BeautifulandBuckeey! Each show he let them go, I was ready to boycott the show entirely, but I was hooked! I especially was loving Bootz; she was my favorite contestant of all! She just had that way about her; she was blunt and gritty and got in anybody and everybody's face; but she was just hot to me! I hope to see more of Bootz in the future; Im sure she will be doing big things.

3)Melyssa Ford quote in Vibe Vixen: In the magazine Vibe Vixen, Melyssa Ford was quoted in this excerpt from the book "Naked, Black Women Bare All About Their Skin,Hair, Hips,Lips and Other Parts", which she contributed to: "Men make a big deal about this butt, but I hate not being able to lie flat on my back because my ass is so high up that you can sink your hand through the huge gap. I always thought that it would be great if I could shrink it, give the appearence of losing fifteen pounds."

4)Tyra Banks vs. strippers: I was glued to my television set when Tyra had that show on where she went undercover as a stripper.It was kinda funny, awkward even for Tyra, who said she just wasn't "comfortable" with it. Her quote:"So many women have emailed me and I've personally had so many conversations with my friends who are frustrated with the men in their lives spending so much time and so much money in strip clubs,” she explains. “I dated a guy that went to these places all the time, and he would say nothing was happening. And I was like, 'Yeah right.' On the try out show for America's Next Top Model #7, all one prospect had to tell her was she was an "exotic entertainer" and Tyra said "You're a stripper." Despite the prospective contestant trying to justify what she does, that girl was out the door, and Tyra said something along the lines that she will always be a stripper. Note to any future models trying out for Top Model; dont tell Tyra you are a stripper!


5)Anchal on America's Next Top Model:On the America's Next Top Model #7, I was really sad to see the lovely Anchal go. I was really captivate by this heavenly model from India. However, I knew that she was not going to make it to the end, despite her impressive performance on many of the shows. What did her in on the show was her lack of confidence and her inability to deal with the pressure that came with every challenge. One of those snooty modeling agents said something about her shape,and on top of that she comes for the Indian culture which frowns on her lovely shape. The judges said they had to let her go because she was "too beautiful". How can a model be "too beautiful?" Well, it made more sense when they said that she had the beauty, but didnt know what to do with it. Word on the net though is that she has been working out, and is more confident now because of the show. The Indian culuture frowns on her skin and shape, but over here, she'd be on the cover of Smooth Magazine and King in a heartbeat. They can have Caridee, I'll take Anchal anytime!

6)The 2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: I thought that the Victoria's Secret fashion show was off the hook, but from what I heard, nobody watched it! The ratings were low for this one. Rather than blame it on the appearence of Justin Timberlake, I would say that it was more the fact that I didnt see any commercials advertising it, I just happened to turn it on. It had a holiday theme to it and included some actual interviews with the models and behind the scenes stuff. My favorite model of that show was the hot supermodel Selita Ebanks. Check out this interview with three of the models (including Selita) from the show, and another interview on You Tube.

7) Vida Guerra on DVD, and Vida vs. GAME: Vida Guerra was all over the place; in the movies, on TV,on her own DVD (buy on Amazon), and even in a diss record by the rapper the GAME. She spoke out about it on Hip Hop DX:He had asked me a few times to go out [on a date] and I rejected him. So I guess it was a personal thing [laughs]...I just think that he’s trying to sell controversy. But don’t get it messed up, I’m working on something for him, too. Karma always gets ‘em. It’s definitely a bitch...Game needs to say my name the right way the next time he mentions me, the pin-up girl told us. In the coming year she will be putting out her own all girl group.

8) GAME vs. the models: GAME started a controversy with the models that set off a brief war of words between him, Vida and Melyssa Ford. On the song "Wouldn't Get Far", GAME says that Vida gives it up easy for a chain and Melyssa Ford drives a cheap car and gives it up easy for access to the Grammies. He also said something about Hoopz also which was kinda raunchy. Vida and Melyssa responded, but I think now its just fizzled out.

Models I Like year in models part #2

2006 was a hot year for models, especially in the world of the "urban" model. Here are some of the hottest things I remember from 2006!
1) London Charles winning the "Flava of Love" Anybody who follows the modeling world knew that London Charles was a model with her own website who started out on the EyecandyModeling site. Though the show is fake, I know I breathed a sigh of relief when Flav picked the girl he named Deelishis over that troll named New York. Throughout the show, all her old pictures were posted on sites, showing that most of us already knew who she was.

2) Caridee winning "America's Next Top Model" Personally, I was really dissapointed with Tyra's decision to make Caridee the winner of the America's Next Top Model #7. She was just weak as a contestant! I think that in the end they ended up with some good contestants but the other two, Melrose and Eugena were just flawed in their own way. Melrose was too perfect, I guess, and Eugena was just too laid back. But Caridee was just messing up left and right! More power to Caridee, I guess, but I think that Tyra and co. lost some cool points with a lot of viewers with this one. Me personally, I liked Eugena!

3) The "skinny models" controversy-This was a big deal this year as super thin models, which were once embraced as the ideal of beauty, were banned from fashion shows in Spain and Italy! After the model Ana Carolina died from kidney malfunction due to Anorexia and Bulemia, even Brazil got into banning super thin models. Tyra Banks even has turned away from that whole idea that models have to be super skinny! I think that it is about time because I think when you can see a models skeleton through her skin, that is so nasty! I can only hope that there will be a trend toward more voluptous and shapely models like Melyssa Ford and Buffie the Body! Imagine models like that on European runways!

4)Magazine cover of the year-The only way I can describe this magazine cover is P-H-A-T! This cover for Black Men magazine was for me the hottest I had seen in a long time! I dont just like it for the obvious reasons, but also because the lighting and the way the colors in the background are coordinated to the models skin tone, and the poses...for many reasons this cover was HOT.

The models pictured on the cover are the beautiful models Esther Baxter and Maliah.

5) Naomi Campbell vs. the world- I've always been a big fan of Naomi Campbell; I think she really put it down for black models when there were very few of them. Its sad though that she has become the butt of too many comedians jokes with her abusing her assistant and slapping her maid and the alleged attack of her drug counselor. She's cleared of that drug counselor incident, but she still faces charges from her former maid and a former assistant. Though I empathize with her maid and her assistant, its kinda funny thinking about how she allegedely threw her cell phone at her maid; and not only that, you have to wonder, how can somebody get hurt with a blackberry, as the former assistant claimed? Comedian Paul Mooney put it best on a show on BET when he described Naomi interviewing her domestic help: Can you take a punch? Do you have Medicaid? Do you bleed easy? LOL. I still love Naomi, though.
That's it for this year in summary 2006. Thanks to all the models out there who gave me interviews; if I haven't printed it yet it will be up in the new year. Thanks to all the readers also, and I hope everybody has a Great New Year!

Models I Liked In Smooth Magazine!

There were many models I liked in the latest issue of Smooth Magazine. One of them is Katherine Monsalve, an 18 year old Colombian model who was in the 50 Cent/Mobb Deep video for Outta Control. In the interview she talks about how she didnt hook up with 50 Cent, and how her parents hooked her up with new 36C breasts which "go well with her butt." Couldnt find any pics of her on the net, but she got some hot pics in the magazine! The model on the cover is Coco, the "wifey" of Ice T, and this chick is grimy so if you go to her site you gotta be careful because that chick has no limits. But she does have a nice centerfold showing that Ice got some kind of taste. Plus, she on the album cover of his latest album, "Gangsta Rap". Another model I really liked was the Hatian honey Geri. This girl is on fire! I dont know what else she has done modeling wise, but I would love to see more of her! She got a nice shape, pretty face, she got it going on. I gotta see more of her! Until next issue, check out the Models I Like!

Interview with Vida Guerra!


Please excuse the fact that I focus on Vida Guerra so much! She's the only urban model who seems to be in the news!

December 4, 2006 - IGN is currently in Las Vegas, celebrating the festivities leading up to the 2006 Billboard Music Awards. The show will be broadcast live, Eastern Time, on Monday, December 4th at 8:00 pm on FOX, and will also air at 8:00, on tape delay, for those watching on pacific time.

A day before the awards, we were backstage at the MGM Grand Arena, where the Billboard Music Awards will take place. While performers like Fergie could be heard nearby doing their sound checks for the next night, we were able to speak with several notable television and music stars who were present for the events surrounding the show. However, the one who grabbed our eye the most had to be the lovely Vida Guerra. Guerra of course is an extremely popular model, who has made multiple appearances in FHM (including the current issue) among other magazines, and earlier this year, took part in a rather eagerly awaited pictorial in the pages of Playboy.

The very busy Guerra has recently added acting to her resume, with the straight-to-DVD film, National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2. She will also make her debut as a musical performer very soon, as she is getting set to release a self-titled album in 2007. We were lucky enough to sit down with Guerra for an exclusive chat, to get the info on the myriad of things going on for her these days.

Kinda old(published on 12/5), but read the interview on IGN!

Vida Guerra Assures The Game Is 'Far Off'


The Game has stirred up some major controversy with his song "Wouldn't Get Far" off his sophomore album, Doctor's Advocate. The song features Kanye West and depicts some of the music industry's most well-known models. Reports have surfaced that Melyssa Ford wasn't too pleased with the track, which features a few lines about her. The Game exerted, "All these new video b****es trying to be Melyssa Ford, but they don't Melyssa Ford drives a Honda Accord." Now, another model, Vida Guerra, has spoken out against The Game for the same reasons. It seems she has more than just a few words for the emcee.

Vida Guerra boasted that the Game asked her out a few times and she rejected him. She also reported that The Game asked her for an e-mail address at a club, she approved but never returned any of the e-mails that he sent. "I just think that he's trying to sell controversy. But don't get it messed up, I'm working on something for him, too. Karma always gets 'em. It's definitely a bitch...Game needs to say my name the right way the next time he mentions me," Vida said in a recent statement.

Vida Guerra has a new DVD on the way, entitled Vida Guerra Exposed, which is readied to hit stores this week. She also has been working on an R&B/Hip-Hop influenced album to follow suit in January.

Models I Liked in the Hustlenomics Magazine!

One of the hottest magazine concepts out now is called Hustlenomics. This magazine is made by the same people who put out Owners Illustrated. The magazines mixes the latest in hip hop with hot models. Its got models posing with cars, and there are some hot models including Petilisa, Judith,Carmen, Chaunda and Rosa. The models I liked the most included one hot model who is in every magazine, Lola AKA Angel who is on Myspace. Back in the days, she was on One Model Place and she just had a "look" that just bugged me out; it was so hypnotic and unique. Now she's doing it big, being in XXL and Smooth Girl all at the same time! Another model featured in the magazine is Chaqua; and she has a page on ModelMayhem. Even though she only got one pic in the magazine, its a tight one! The Hustlenomics website is under construction, but for more information check out their Myspace page. Can't wait for the next issue!

When I first saw Kischa Simone, I was just in awe of the sight of this beautiful young model who lives in Cali with Jamaican roots. What I like about Simone is that she is very ambitous and multi-talented. She also is so hot you can't help but think that she was born to model! Check ot the picture at the bottom to see what I mean! Simone is in college studying psychology, but Im sure that we will see more of her in the future! Check out her pages on Myspace under the names KSimmi and Kischa Simone and show her some love, and check out my interview with the intoxicating and amazing model Kischa Simone!

First of all, where are you from and what city, state or town are you representing? My parents are from Kingston Jamaica, and I was born in Queens New York, but grew up in Palmdale California.

What are your measurements? 34-25-37

Why did you want to become a model? I always looked at this industry as if it was missing something, there aren’t enough women of color gracing the pages of the magazines that I like to read, I want to break those barriers, and I think that I am determined enough to do that.

Who is your greatest influence and what help you to decide that you would love to be a model??? My greatest influence is my mother; I know that sounds a little cliché, but its true. Her hard work and determination is such an inspiration, and I want to take that same approach as I encounter the inevitable obstacles that this field throws at you.

What do you bring to the modeling field or game? I think I bring a different and fresh look that is very versatile. I can walk the runway, be the girl next door, or a sex kitten (which is my favorite).

What do you like to do in your free time? I am a total homebody, but if I’m not there watching my “tivo,” I’m at the gym getting some much needed stress relief.

Where is your favorite vacation spot? At this moment it would have to be Miami. I love the weather, and the beautiful warm water. I love to travel so I am looking forward to my “favorite vacation spot” to change many times.

I’m sure the fellas will want to know-are you single or taken? I am single…by choice

What kind of man do you prefer; Wall Street executive or hat to the back thug? I want a man who can adapt; I guess the “best of both worlds” would be perfect.

Another question Im sure the fellas will want to know, what are you most likely to wear to the beach? To bed? To the club, if you go to clubs? To the beach I love to wear my pink polka-dot string bikini, I think it totally embodies who I am…fun and unpredictable! To bed..I think this may disappoint the fellas but I wear boy shorts and my favorite gray nightshirt that I’ve had for over 15 years (bet you could imagine how that might look…sexy huh?) and to the club…I love to wear anything that makes me feel sexy…I love to be the girl that turns heads and stands out in the crowd.

If you were a candy bar, what would it be and why? I think I would be a snickers bar…satisfying in every single bite.

What is your most defining feature? My lips

Being as beautiful as you are, you must get alot of attention day to day. How do you deal with all that attention? I am actually a tom boy…I love to work-out and play sports, I played basketball in high-school, so my “uniform” is a wife beater, jeans, a hat and sneakers, so I don’t bring that much attention to myself, but when I’m all “done-up” I just graciously thank the men or sometimes women who give me these compliments.

When you model, what settings do you like to do the most? I love in-door settings. I think it’s amazing what some photographers can do with lighting and a nice intimate scene.

If you had a choice, what magazine would you be on the cover of? Vogue..Elle...Cosmo…ect (there are many)…oh yeah..and of course King.

If you had a choice of videos, which one would you be in? A dirty south crunk video or would you go R&B? A slow R&B song, where I am the only girl in the video.

What is your favorite part about being a model? For me it’s just getting in front of the camera and creating art, I love portraying different characters.

What are your goals in terms of being a model? I am also in my last year at school where I am studying psychology; my ultimate goal is to obtain my doctorate degree in child psychology while I perfect my craft in acting and modeling.

I've seen you on Myspace, are you on any other sites? I’m also on blackcuties, modelplace, digitaldolls (where you can download my wallpaper to your cell phones….i know…shameless plug) and there is also an article about me on Black Star News.

Anything else you want to throw out there to the people? I am very spontaneous, I’m down for almost anything in the spur of the moment, and loved to be surprised.

I’m glad that I got a chance to catch up with you, so for my last question, I want you to sum up your style and yourself with one word.....Intoxicating
