Charrisse Jackson-Jordan wasn't going to let nerves get the best of her. The Real Housewives of Potomac mom walked the runway yesterday at New York Fashion Week for designer Korto Momolu, who put on a show packed with Project Runway alums in honor of fashion designer and former Project Runway contestant Mychael Knight who passed away last year at 39. 

Charrisse looked so glammed up in a video she posted right before the show. But in the caption she revealed she was nervous about her runway walk. She handled it like a total boss, though, leaning on her fellow models for advice.

"I'm backstage getting ready to go out for New York Fashion Week. As we know, I'm not a model. But I'm walking with professional models. So I'm going to get some advice from them on my journey," she said in the video. The advice she got ranged from "walk like you're fabulous" to "take a deep breath" to "just don't fall."

She took it all in stride. "I'm not going to fall," Charrisse joked at the end of her video. "Let you know if I fall or not."
