Interview w/ The Italian Firecracker of the Firehouse Girls!

A.J. (otherwise known as the Italian Firecracker) is a hot model from Massachusetts! She is part of the group known as The Firehouse Girls. What I like about A.J. is that as her name implies, she is full of energy and has a spark to her that translates to the pics that she takes. Check out my interview with her as she talks about her modeling career and the Firehouse Girls. Check her out on Myspace, and give her a holler!

When did you start modeling? I was in a few newspaper 'print ads' when I was a child. The first one was when I was about 9 months old and the other was when I was
7. Of course being that young, I didn't really understand what was going on. I was just a kid! When I reached college, I started modeling again and liked the feeling of being in front of the camera. I view modeling as a hobby, because it is something that I enjoy, but at the same time I wont let it get to my head. I'm an outgoing person and while it is fun to get recognition, I strive to pursue modeling projects that have value. Especially if it involves giving back to the community!

What would you say is your best feature? I receive many compliments on my eyes, they're naturally green. I have also been told that I have a nice "butt". The funny thing is, I don't work out. In fact I hate going to the gym! I guess I'm one of those lucky girls with good genes.

Tell me about the Firehouse Girls? I learned about this organization by visiting their website and they chose me to be one of their Official models. I was the first girl to be photographed from the state of Massachusetts. The Firehouse Girls is a group of models and photographers from all over the United States who come together to support Firefighters. My uncle works for the fire department in my town, so this group has a special meaning to me. The images from my photoshoot will be used in the Firehouse Girls 2010 calendar that will be sold throughout the Country. All proceeds will go to Fire Departments so that they can buy newer and safer equipment for their men. I am honored to be a part of this organization because everything we do is for a Good Cause!

What would you say is the best way to describe you? I love this question! I'm extremely outgoing and can carry on a conversation with just about anyone. I live for humor and I make people laugh everyday. If other people are laughing and smiling, chances are I will be too. I strive to be around those who are genuine and loyal, because I grew tired of relationships and friendships that weren't "True". I dont like people who lie, cheat, or take pleasure in hurting others. I keep my distance from people who fit that description. People often describe me as a "little ball of energy". I'm always moving around and chatting with people. I really cant sit still. However, I also have the desire to be alone from time to time. Some people take this personally, as if I'm trying to avoid them. This is simply not the case! I enjoy quiet moments by myself where I can relax and watch a movie. I balance my time being with others and enjoying their company, but I know when to take some time for myself.

What would you say is your specialty in the modeling field? I'm comfortable being in front of the camera. I have experience modeling Casual Wear, Glamour, Swimsuit and some Lingerie. I think it's important for a model to be versatile and experience different styles. I would say that I'm better at doing print related work, because I am too short to do runway modeling. I'm only 5'3.

For anybody who wants to work with you, how can they contact you? The best way to contact me is by email, which is I check my mail daily and reply asap. Please feel free to send me a message or friend request on Myspace by visiting You will find more pictures of me there!

Jessenia Vice!

I found out about Jessenia Vice from one of my readers, and when I checked her out I'd have to say I was amazed! What I liked about Jessenia was her distinct look and exotic flavor that sets her apart and makes her stand out. She's also very nice and down to earth! Not only does Jessenia model, but she also works as a nurse in an emergency room. A few years ago she never really saw herself as a model, and never intended on doing it. Now, she's a rising star, having been on various websites, in magazines, and tv shows like the Tyra Banks show. Thanks to my reader for the tip, and thanks to Jessenia for taking time out of her busy schedule to do this interview with me.

Where are you from, and what is your ethnic background? I'm from the Garden State: New Jersey. I am Latina of Ecuadorian decent

When did you start modeling? I started modeling last summer, but it's not the only thing I do, I also work at the ER.

What would you say is your best feature? Promise not to laugh? I love my eyebrows! Find it hard to believe? Ask my mother! LOL

Tell me about your most interesting experience modeling? My most interesting experience as a model would have to be while I was on set for the Tyra Show and they gave us lines to say a few minutes before we filmed. All i kept thinking was, "Wait, how do i do this!??! I’m not an actress!!!"

Do you get a lot of people saying “Kim Kardashian looks just like you?” Yes, I get told that I look like Kim Kardashian everywhere, at work in the ER, in line at the grocery store and while I'm out in a club.

As far as modeling, what would you say is your specialty? I specialize in glamour. I spend most of my days wearing srub uniforms because of work so when I put on lingerie I immediately feel sexy and my comfort ability with it shows in my photos.

Do you have any sites you are on so we can see more of you? Yes, I do. People can see more of me in the following sites:

And keep an out for the launch of my official website

How can anybody who wants to work with you contact you? For those who want to book me for events, magazines, or even online interviews they can email me at:

For anybody trying to come up in this field, what advice would you have for them?
My advice would be to have fun and be smart. Do not drop from what you were doing before the modeling. Stay in school , Keep your job, it's better to have something if nothing comes form it.

Give me 1 word that best describes you. The best word to describe me, would be:HUMBLE
