Would Gigi Hadid Do Reality TV?
Yolanda Foster's model daughter opens up about having her own show.
She's already followed in her mom's footsteps by becoming the world's most in-demand new model. But that doesn't mean that Gigi Hadid is quite ready to become a reality TV star like Yolanda Foster.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills's star's daughter revealed that while she's comfortable in front of the cameras for fashion shoots—she isn't quite ready for a reality TV crew to follow her every move.
"I don't want to be a reality star," she told Us Weekly. "I want to focus on my own career."
However, Gigi hasn't completely shut that out of her life. She has appeared on RHOBH and will make appearances during the current season. "I was on a couple of episodes to try and support my mom," she added. "And obviously [it would] make sense because I'm her daughter, but I really am working hard to make my modeling career my own and make a name for myself."
The 19-year-old has a pretty busy schedule traveling the globe as a jet-setting fashionista, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that she doesn't always catch the latest episodes of RHOBH.
"My mom is my mom, and that's my view of it," she said. "I think the things that are important for me to hear, you know, it's her group of friends, and if I'm going to hear about them, I don't need to watch it on TV."
Still, Yolanda is proud of her daughter's career accomplishments so far and she opened up recently about raising grounded daughters like Gigi and Bella, who is also pursuing her own modeling career.
"They were not allowed to work until they were 17, until you knew who they are," she said. "I was 16 when I got started, but I needed to work. It is a different situation for them. I took each of them on their 17th birthday and found them an agency that was right for them. It ended up being the same agent for both, IMG. And I told them to work hard."
