Bravotv.com: What did you do right after the show ended? What was the reaction like in your hometown?
After the show ended I went home to Chicago to reunite with my family and friends. When I got home I was blown away by the amount of phone calls, e-mails, and words of support I received from family, friends, and fans from across the nation. I was honored, humbled, and truly amazed by the entire experience. After being back in "reality" for a few weeks I took some time to really evaluate the opportunities that were available to me in Chicago and NYC. It was clear to me that I had to make the move to NYC. In August of 2008 I made the move to pursue my dream of being a supermodel. Since then, I’ve been busy modeling and building up my book, and more recently I’ve been exploring music and acting opportunities.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised with how closely the Make Me A Supermodel fans connected with you and Ben?
I was happy to see that fans truly connected with the relationship that Ben and I had with each other. Our friendship blossomed and grew enormously throughout the show and our lives are forever changed because of the experience. Ben and I shared a lot with one another and most of all we learned from one another. I am happy that our fans got to come along with us on our journey, even if it was a small glimpse.
Bravotv.com: We obviously have to ask: Now that Ben and his wife live in NYC, do you guys still hang out?
Actually, it is my understanding that Ben and April have moved back to Tennessee in order to allow April the environment that she needs to pursue her music career. She has an incredible voice and I know that she is going to be a star. Ben cares a great deal for April and I know that he would do anything to make her happy — that is just the kind of guy he is. That is why I love him, in a Bronnie way of course.
