I don’t know. Maybe stand up in the tents at Fashion Week and make an announcement? I would like to do it when all the Bravo cameras are rolling, to be honest with you. I’d do it in a really, really, really proud way, not in a look-at-me kind of way. Because it’s not about that. It really is more about good things do come to you when you stay positive.
Think they’ll be jealous?
Absolutely. Do I enjoy that jealousy? Not at all. They’re very unpredictable women.
I do want to make sure all the tables are nailed down.
Have you been making that joke a lot lately?
All the time. When I was meeting with the big publishing houses and would have 30 people sitting around a big table, one of the first things I’d always say was, “Before we get started: Is the table nailed down?”
And it’s worked in every room?
Pretty much. People who are going to love me, love me.
How were you discovered as a model?
All I kept hearing was that my legs were fabulous. This was the thong era, and I had no trouble showing my lower body at all.
Where are some of the places your legs have appeared?
I did a lot of work in Europe. I did some advertisements, catalog work. But nothing as high end as what Christine is doing. It’s not something I went to the top of my field in. The pay was not like it is now, anyway. I’m not super-tall—I’m 5'6"—so I couldn’t really do runway. I just worked to make a living.
What was your best pose?
Definitely standing up, from the side, with my right knee bent.
Did you ever consider insuring your legs?
Maybe I should someday. They’re still good legs.
How do you take care of them?
