The show is over, why is there drama after the show?
There's drama after the show because people are trying their best to stay relevant, but it doesn't always work in their favor.
Why does it drive most girls crazy to mention the name of another from the show?
Because it’s allowing the person to stay relevant over and over again.
Why did you choose to be on “Bad Girls Club”?
I chose to be on “Bad Girls Club” because I thought it would be a challenge, and it was. I learned a lot about myself, and if I had to do it over again, I would.
What made you stand out on the show?
What made me stand out was that I always stood up for what I believed in no matter what anyone else thought. I was my own person.
Who did you physically fight and why?
[Laughs]. I fought the whole house now that I look back. No one was excluded. I did this because I had to stand my ground no matter how many people I had to take on.
What was the ultimate goal of the cast?
Not sure what the ultimate goal was for the others. I can only speak for myself.
What did you accomplish?
I gained a new attitude on life. The show made me stronger than I've ever been before.
Any girl-on-girl action witnessed/experienced?
No [laughs]. None of them were my type.
Tell us something we missed.
A lot of people thought I treated the new girls the way I was treated when actually I was friends with them at first, but of course with editing that was all cropped out and jumped straight to when we weren't friends anymore.
What’s next for you?
A successful swimwear line named after myself, "Elease Donovan." I’m also doing some acting, singing, and I wouldn't mind doing another reality show.
Sex & Business
What percent of business approaches from Urban Model clients are without sex in mind?
Not sure. I don't have this problem.
How do you deal with those in business who you find attractive and will have sex with?
I don’t deal with them—period.
What do you feel about sex and how it’s helped spawn some careers and even television shows?
I feel that sex does sell, but it shouldn't always have to be based on that to get you to a certain level.
Sex and business does coincide in the entertainment business.
Is there a healthy medium where sex and business can coincide with you?
There isn't any healthy medium. We shouldn't be doing any type of business together if that's the case.
Where do you draw the line?
When someone is just thinking about sex instead of taking me seriously.
Have you had business success with a person whom you also found attractive and had sex with?
No, I don't mix business with pleasure.
Does being attractive assist in: shopping budgets, travel, bills and grooming?
No, it doesn't because being attractive is skin deep to me.
Favorite place to be kissed: My whole body.
Game Plan: To build a successful brand.
Accomplishment: My biggest accomplishment so far has been personal and financial gain.
