  1. Gee, any chance they want a free model to use? No, probably not.

  2. Unbelievable! Grammatical errors galore and requests for FULL BODY PHOTOS which I am certain is against the law!

    How does this person get away with this???

    Speechless and UNPROFESSIONAL at it's best!

  3. Interned for her and shes a super bitch. The internship is in her apartment which she never leaves because shes a fuc**** whale. All the things she listed that you would gain while interning for her is totally not true.
