Exclusive: There Is a “House Mother” on America’s Next Top Model?
Moving into the Top Model house is a lot like moving into a sorority house, Jaclyn told us of her ANTM experience. But when the going got tough and the models got fierce, the girls did have one older and wiser shoulder to lean on, and that shoulder belonged to the House Mother Amy Lee.
No, House Mom is not Amy's official title, but apparently she took the girls under their wing and even keeps in touch with the models since they've all left the house. "We called her our House Mother because she always scolded us if we did things wrong and she was always on set to make sure we were all OK," Jaclyn told us. "She took care of us. I don't know how she'll take that, calling her our House Mother. She's a casting director."
So why didn't we get to see her on the show? We did! But we didn't even know it. "She was actually in two episodes ago when Brittani was having a panic attack," Jaclyn says. "She was the adorable Asian in the little side room where Brittani was. She helped her go out of the room. She's so awesome."
Countdown 'til Amy Lee releases her tell-all Top Model novel starts now.
