Though model-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid has made a few appearances alongside mom Yolanda Foster on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she has made it very clear that she doesn’t plan on making a habit of it. “I’m not interested in reality TV,” Gigi said in an interview with Fashion Week Daily. “I want to focus on modeling and get away from all that. I want to be known as a model, not a reality star.
The 19-year-old is clearly not a big fan of the genre. When asked if she’d been portrayed accurately on the show, Gigi responded, “I don’t think anyone on reality TV is portrayed accurately. Before anyone judges someone on a reality TV show, they should try to get to know them first.” So the Housewives keep telling us!
Gigi’s mom doesn’t look like she’s going to be quitting anytime soon, though! Former model Yolanda has an established and comfortable presence on RHOBH, and has even reportedly managed to recruit her friend, Shiva Safai, to the cast.
Young Gigi may not want that life for herself, but she is using her experience in mom’s limelight to help with her sudden megafame. “I’ve grown up in and around the spotlight, and I’m starting to go into my own spotlight. I want to be successful, but the negative stuff does get to me sometimes, you know? I consider myself a pretty normal girl, so when people are on the Internet writing stuff about me, I’m like ‘Hello! There are whales to save! Go talk about something else!’”
Do you think Gigi’s done with reality TV? Are you excited about the new season of RHOBH? Sound off in the comments!
