Recently, disqualified America's Next Top Model All-Star Angelea Preston opened up to Elle Girl about her life post All-Stars. It sounds like the ever-tough Angelea is keeping a positive attitude.

"I loved my time on America’s Next Top Model, and I’m so grateful to the producers and to Tyra for giving me the chance to showcase my work in that way," she gracefully said when asked about her disqualification. "You just have to keep going; no one can direct your destiny but you."

She seems determined to make the most of her career, explaining that she's currently "living in New York City right now, taking acting classes and getting into acting."

We're happy that Angelea is moving on, though we can't help but notice that she's still totally hush-hush about what happened behind the scenes with her disqualification. Will the truth ever come out?
