Please write a paragraph introducing yourself. Be sure to mention your future projects as well as things that you are proud of professionally. Explain your best & worst experience within the modeling industry. If you'd like to name names please do. Anything that you'd like to add that you think would make your interview interest please do.

I am BrandiVonne. Aspiring Model out of Dallas, TX. I like to call myself a quad-threat!! iMODEL,iSING,iDANCE,iACT. I have been modeling since I was 6 yrs old. I took a break from it for awhile to work on my dancing and recently hopped back into it about 3 years ago. I have been featured in several music videos, websites, and magazines. I live for modeling. I feel like with every photo I take I create a story which I feel like some other models aren't able to do. As far as future plans.. I plan to continue to keep doing more videos and Magazine features as well as working on my Girl duo "Lady Jane". I have had alot of really good experiences since I've hopped back into modeling and I've taught myself alot and grew as a person as well as a model. I tell myself to not let people intimidate me and have tough skin. In this industry people are always going to judge you.. Just stay true to myself and dont do anything that would compromise my integrity. I AM BRANDIVONNE. Miss Glamorous Gangsta..STAR STUDDED Stupid swagg... FASHION guru;) im just me. "Everybody's always trying to be better than the next person.. and i'm satisfied with being plain old me".... -BV

1. How has modeling help your confidence?
I would say that from my modeling experience I have definitely gained confidence. I feel that I am able to walk into a room and feel confident in any situation. casting call, video shoot, whatever... I dont let other people intimidate me. Which came from getting this confidence boost;)

2. Would you want to be known for your beauty or for what you've accomplished?
Definitely what I have accomplished. There's thousands of beautiful girls. But It would be even better to be beautiful and able to list all of my accomplishments, which alot of people aren't able to say they've done. Especially at my age

3. How hard was it to break into modeling?
Not hard at all. I'm a huge net working person. So i Started by meeting lots of people.. hearing about events or video shoots or models needed for certain events and I went for it!

4. Describe a night alone with you.
A night alone would be very mellow. I just love to chill. I'm not the type of girl that has to be out to have fun. I enjoy being in the house just watching movies and cuddling.

5. If you could be alone with any male actor who would it be?
OH wow.. definitely Michael Easly!!! YIKES!! that man is gorgeous!!

6. Tell us something odd about yourself.
I'm an odd person overall.. lol. I guess my fashion i outta this world.. i absolutely love fashion.. i wouldn't call it odd.. but im obessed with fashion!

7. After seeing your pictures do men expect you to be perfectly beautiful 24 hours a day? I honestly feel that most men find their women the most beautiful when they're not all dolled up.. which is how i am most of the time anyway.. So When men see and still look at me as beautiful that's wonderful feeling.

8. Do you think you are in the wrong profession?
No. I am absolutely where i feel like i need to be. I live for what I do. Modeling creates another personality for me.. Something like creating an alter ego.

9. Do you follow your destiny or do you stick with what's safe & secure?
No i am absolutel daring and not afraid to push above my limits or step out of my comfort zone.
10. What does it take to be in a long term relationship with you?
TRUST! And i am all about the relationship being a friendship. I have to be like "best friends" with who i am in a relationship.

11. As a model do you expect to soon start dating a rapper or athlete?
No i've been down that path... and honestly it's not what it's cracked up to be..

12. Would you consider yourself materialistic? HONESTLY i really am looking for labels. Call it materialistic.. call it whatever but I live for fashion!! I love designers and have expensive taste!

13. Could you date a guy who looked in the mirror more than you?
NO!!! I'm not into cocky guys at all!!! That mirror aint big enough for the both of us!!!

14. What's the best part of waking up?
Best part of wking up is realizing that God didn't HAVE to wake you up. but he did.. it's such a blessing to wake up in perfectly good health and know that somebody didn't wake up.. gives me chills

15. Where do you expect for modeling to take you?
Open bigger doors and more opportunities. I am also an artist. So by me modeling i meet alot of people.. artists.. directors.. EVERYTHING! I have so many other big plans i want to accomplish in life and modeling is just a stepping stone!! I want to act as well and modeling opens doors for that as well.

16. How does your father feel about you modeling?
My daddy is soooo supportive of my modeling! He tells everyone about my magazine's and projects!! He's my number one fan!

17. What's the most positive thing you can say about what you've experienced since you've started.
I've gotten my confidence back and I see my true inner and OUTER beauty.

18. Pick your poison. Chocolate, Wine, Cigarettes, Vodka, Sex or Love. (Choose One)
LOVE!!! Its a drug.. i would like a little of everything though except cigarettes! GROSS!
19. What's the best & worst parts about being in a relationship?
Best parts.. Having someone there for you as a supporter,friend, and companion to do things with.. just constant comfort.. The feeling of being loved unconditionally is an amazing feeling in a relationship.
and i feel like if im happy.. which i very much am there is NO WORST PART!

20. In 3 words describe your character.
Spontaneous, goofy, fabulous!!! ;)

Name: Elke The Stallion
Age: 26
Location: Hollywood, CA
Zodiac: arie
Sexual Orientation: straight
Relationship Status: single
Measurements: 38/28/48
Booking Info:

I am Elke The Stallion one of the top Urban Models to date. I have been working in this biz for the past 6 years and can say that I am extreemly successful and one of the few paid models that have taking her career to the next level and now managing other girls as well as my own career. I have come all the way from Germany and established myself in this business with videos by Outkast, 50 Cent, Eminem as well as Magazines such as Smooth, Smooth Girl, Straight Stuntin, Sweets, Craze and many many more not to mention endless online features. I am a pioneer as being the first caucasion model to be this successful in the Urban Market.

1. What is the best part about being "Elke the Stallion"?

The best part about being "Elke the Stallion" is to have established myself to a point where my Brand is recognized and respected.

2. Has it been easier to manage models rather than actually being a model?

No, it has not been easier to manage other models compared to managing myself. Because I am a go-getta, I dont prograstinate and get stuff done very fast. So if you manage other people that dont have the same drive as yourself and operate different it can get frustrated because I am perfectionist and wish that everybody would work the way I do. That would make my life easier.

3. Do men expect more out of you sexually because of your status?

Not so much. I think that men rather try to impress me about how well they perform in the bedroom. So I can kinda sit back, relax and let them take control.

4. What kind of stigmas have been placed on you?

Arrogant, fake, dumb. All completely normal, people like to believe in the negative before they believe in the positive, sad to say.

5. What do you think about a man with raggedy shoes?

HELL NAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6. What advice can you give a man about approaching you?

Be confident and come from the heart. Leave the pick up lines at home. Be respectful and witty.

7. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest) how would you rate your sex drive?

About a 7. I love sex, but I can go weeks or months without it. Its not what drives me in life.

8. Have you considered acting?

Have done a few project on TV and even a movie. So its def something that is fun to do, but its not my main interest.

9. What won't you do in a music video?

I would never do nude. Unless its implied in a like a sexy love scene aka Tyrese "Signs" when the ladies where under the sheets with him. That was hot.

10. What is your biggest source of income?

I would say hosting events. But overall my modeling career has def been blessing my wallet.

11. Name one modeling myth.

12. If your daughter told you she wanted to model what would you say?

Sure, why not. She is def beautiful enough to do it.

13. How much has the modeling industry changed in the past 5 years?

Oh lord, where to start? When I began my career there was not that many of us. Its was just a few making the real money. I am talking about $1200 - $2500 for a lead in a video. Having curves and a booty was a plus, but it wasnt the main thing. But girls thought thats all it took, so every girl with a little bit of ass thought they could be models and with myspace and facebook, EVERY bathroom-model thought they had a career. Next thing you know girls working for free, bringing down the value of us girls and nobody was getting paid big bucks anymore. I was smart starting my website right away, establishing myself and setting my asking price. So thank God this whole Epidemic of wanna-be models hasnt effected me.

14. What's next for the "Stallion Models"?

Stallion Models is a working progress, I will have some castings to find new talent. And it will be a theral search, because looks is not all I am looking for. I need driven girls that put as much effort into this as myself.

15. What's your favorite men's magazine?

I still enjoy Black Mens magazine and my new favorite is CRAZE magazine that I was blessed enough to have been on the cover of their 2nd issue following Buffy The Body. I think they have a great future ahead of them. Show Magazine def has alot of girls to look at every issue they drop, like the photography and final touches.

16. Do you feel like you live a dual life one for the entertainment industry and one for "9 to 5"?

I dont have 9-5. My life is non-stop. I mean now for example, it is sunday morning 9.33 am and I am doing this interview. So you see, there is no time and date normal for me. I sometimes work till late at night depending on what I have going on.

17. Do you have more respect for a wife that knows her husband is cheating and stays or a mistress who sleeps with someone else's husband?

"Till death do us part" yeah, maybe, but cheating to me is death of the relationship. I think a woman that stays with her cheating husband lost her self respect. Other then that I do not believe that there is many men out there that dont cheat, I think most of them do. If you realize that and understand then maybe you can be very happy in life and not drive yourself crazy. As far as being a mistress, the man is obviously married so you will never be the main woman, with that in mind he should compensate for that, treat you nice, buy you gifts etc.
18. Do you feel more comfortable single or in a relationship?

I like to be single cause I m a control freak. I like things my way. So if I end up with somebody they will need to be able to let go and let me do my things the way I like them done, except in the bedroom, a man can take all the control there.

19. Do you have a probationary period before having sex with a man?

No. I go with the flow.

20. Do you think when you have sex with a man determines the course of the relationship?

Yes, If i dont plan on being in a relationship with that particular man I usually just have fun and maybe just a one-night stand. But if I like somebody and might want to try something serious I hold off for a while. Get to know the person.

Hi my name is Shyla Starr. I am an East Indian model originally from Hong Kong. I am still rather new to the modeling industry. So far I have been featured on several online magazines, such as Zaria Magazine, Dis n Dat and DIB Inc Status. I have been the 'Model of the Month' on countless websites. I haven't had many negative experiences with modeling. I would say everything has been a learning experience. I have met so many amazing people and collaborated with wonderful photographers. I have had some amazing experiences in the last few months. I am excited to see whats in store for this year. I have been asked by several companies to be featured in their work, so stay tuned!

2. Do you think it would be easier to date a celebrity? No, there would be no privacy

3. Have you ever wished you had your own reality show? It would be fun, why not

4. Why do you think reality shows are so popular? They are based on drama and that is what people thrive on, people love to see people fall in love and fight and sleep around

6. What's one thing you wish you could change about the modeling industry? I think now its so easy to get involved in, anyone can do it. I've noticed some ugly chicks and they are 'models'. It is a competitive industry to be in as it is, why not cut the ugly ones out

Booking Info:

Heys wats up im Elyse aka Esaucey. I am the epitome of sexy and saucey. That's what people call me. I do not have the average model look. Most people cant even usually tell what nationality I am. I'm confident and smart. I'm also a jack of all trades. I'm a little nerdy and also quite the character, but you wouldn't know that unless you really got to know me. I would love to bring my crazy personality, look, and style to BlockDymez Mag. I believe in hard work and dedication. I always surround myself with positive vibes, professional people and good friends. Please support and look out for me in the future. SPECIAL Thank you to BlockDymez for the interview. Please support and go cop the mag :)

1. How would you describe the BEST "first impression"?

The best "first impression" would have to go smoothly.You know how those usually end up. lol. There would definitely have to be some lights flashing for us to be on the same page. Once you meet someone you just know if you're going to mesh or not. That's how it happens for me.

2. People tend to think that models are easy in bed & not so bright. Do you run into a lot of models like that?
That is so not true. Most of the ladies I meet are actually really down to earth, educated, and extremely talented.

3. What do you think other models say about you?
I would hope they would say the same. We all need to support eachother and grow together. We're trying to take over the world. lol.

4. Do you think that physical attributes are more important than friendship when it comes to maintaining a successful relationship?
To an extent, they are very important. It may sound shallow but in order for someone to stay in a relationship, they have to be physically attracted to one another or the other party may go looking elsewhere. I know I always try and look sexy for my man and maybe some women aren't doing that anymore. Of course friendship is key. Being friends helps you to communicate better and simply enjoy each other.

5. Do you think it's okay for a man to keep noticing another woman after he is in a committed relationship?
If the man "keeps noticing" other women than he's not ready to be in a committed relationship. And its not okay.

6. What is the first thing that you notice when you look at a man?

His smile. I love a man with bright white teeth and a great smile. That can brighten any womens' day. Next would have to be his ambiance/swagggger. lol. When he walks into the room you know it.

7. If a man doesn't say so, how do you know he wants to make love?
His actions should let me know what message hes trying to send me. Kisses and sweet nothings in my ear should do the job. lol.

8. If your friend was cheating on her man, do you think you should tell her man?

I do think I should tell him, but she should. I do not get involved in other peoples relationships unless they ask me for advice. I hate when people but into my business when they have no idea what's going on so i'd rather keep my mouth shut.

9. If your friend was cheating on her, would you tell your man about it?
If the question came up in the conversation I probably would. Like I said, communication is key so we would share a lot of info.

10. How would you feel if you made more money than your man?
I wouldn't feel bad about it. It's 2011 and times have defintely changed. It's now okay for the woman to "bring home the bacon." I'm sure some men wouldn't mind either. If i work hard and put my time in and I just happen to generate more money than so be it. My other half should be proud to have a working woman.

11. Could you date a "rich man" you never see?

Well if he was rich, flying me out to where he was shouldn't be a problem. We would make it work. And if this man really did care about me, he would make it a point to see me.

12. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
I would be 30. Not too young not too old. Still young enough to do crazy adventurous things but old enough to say that i have experinced life and have lived a little.

13. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Never trying is basically failing. If you never try you will never be able to say I did it and it didn't work out. What have you got to lose??? At least when you try something you can give it your best and say you did it. That's all you can ever do. No one is going to do it for you.

14. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

I would like to think of myself as a name brand. i.e. product. I would need to sell the "SAUCE." I would market myself as a model, mua, stylist, creative director, digital designer, accessory designer and much more. I would basically sell my name and any other service or product that went along with it.

15. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?

I would take what they were saying and listen. If I respect and admire these people they may be saying some of these things for a reason. If they were being dishonest then id have to put my foot down and defend the person.

16. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

My whole outlook on the world and the way I think. Most people meet me and tell me that they've never met someone like me or may even think im a little weird. lol. Shhh. dont get scared. lol. I'm always thinking 1 step if not 3 steps ahead of you.

17. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
More work I love to do. If I love doing it then y not. It's always better to be working then not working at all. It keeps my mind young and flowing with ideas.

18. What advice would you give other females about them being so hard on each other?
Always look out for each other and make new friends in the game. You never know who your going to meet and when. I've met a lot of models and some are now my best friends. We always help each other out with work and anything else. And it also helps when you can look for help or advice when that same person is in the same position as you.

19. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
I live everyday like its my first and last. If i happen to relive it then so be it. I'm just happy to be alive and working.

20. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
I wouldn't do anything differently. I live as I want now. People judge me all the time now so im used to it. When You have tattoos and crazy hair people always stare and comment. What would the world be like if people stopped doing the things they do because of being judged. We would be back to square 1.

Location: Miami, FL
Zodiac: Scorpio

Relationship Status: In a relationship
Measurements: 34D-25-36
Booking Info:

My name is Heather Shanholtz and I'm a full time glamour model. I mainly model swimsuit and lingerie.

I also has an upcoming shoot for Girls of Lowrider.

Also coming out a national calendars for Camacho Cigars and OTM.

For fun I like to go to the gun range, skydive and paintball. I also have my motorcycle license so I love to ride.

1. What's your worse experience within the entertainment industry and with who?
Not anything in particular but it is kind of a lot like high school. There is a lot of gossip and drama with models and photographers.

2. What do you want to come out of your modeling career?
I'm just seeing where it takes me. I continue to work hard and have recently got into acting so when my looks fade I'll have that to fall back on as well as graphic and web design, and a ton of other things.

3. What is the most satisfying thing about being a model?
You get to travel and make your own schedule.

4. Do you think that it is easy to avoid drama once you become successful?
No it's way harder. Everyone suddenly has to put their 2 cents in on what they think. Old friends and family you haven't heard from in years finally come out of the woodwork too.

5. Do you think that dating is hard?
The hardest when your a model. Your never there and always on the road.

6. Have you ever been in love with two people at the same time?

7. How did you find money when you were flat broke?
Get a 2nd job.

8. Have you ever had an attraction to a member of the same sex?
All the time! LOL!

9. What are the most important qualities in a man?
Honesty, Loyalty, Amazing sense of humor and their own sense of style.

10. What's the biggest change you've made in yourself?
I've learned how to separate business from personal whereas before I didn't and it got me in trouble. Before I looked at modeling as partying my face off every night. Now that I'm wiser I treat it like a business and still party but do it in a certain moderation.

11. Do you feel like a specific race has more opportunities than another?
Not necessarily. All races are capable in accomplishing any goal they have as long as they keep up with the dedication behind their drive and keep motivated.

12. Is a relationship worth the trouble of maintaining it?
Depends on who with.

13. What percentage of your pay do you spend on payday?
I try to save 75% but my bills are crazy high. I love my lifestyle.

14. How would you feel if you found out there was no GOD?

15. Do you model for attention or because of how it makes you feel?
Both. I love the attention and it's fun to go out and buy my magazines on the shelves and see how all of my hard work has paid off. I have had at least 2-3 on shelves per month for the last 3.

16. Eye Candy Modeling is not lucrative for models, do you feel that photographers take advantage of a female's desperation? Some of them do. But eye candy modeling is lucrative for me because I'm very business motivated. I turn it into more exposure and make appearances at clubs and get paid for that. I normally do at least 2 a week. I also work with some smaller named photographers that want to use me just because I'm more well known and since I know graphic design and photo editing I teach them both after the shoot. So I get paid for 3 things.

17. Do you think you have an advantage of other models because of your look?
I think I do because my look is very versatile. I can pull off a commercial look and can also pose for multiple types of magazines. Even though I'm German, Irish & American Indian I still pose for the urban and latina magazines.

18. If you were publisher of BlockDymez Magazine who would you chose to be in our magazine other than yourself?
Tahiti Cora, Shanna Corrina, Elizabeth Christine, Rali Ivanova.

19. What kind of person do people mistake you as?
A bitch because of my looks.

20. Who are you interested in working with in the future?
Show Magazine & FHM.
