Interview with Furonda, the 9th eliminated girl from America’s Next Top Model Cycle 6.
By Jackie Helm

Furonda tells us about her triple threat qualities and announces her website www.furonda.com!

Jackie:  Hi Furonda.  Did you know you would be the o ne to go?

Furonda:  In the week before I felt like my time was dwindling.  I could see that I may not be exactly what they were looking for so at that point I was ready for anything.

Jackie:  What is your interpretation of why the judges sent you home?

Furonda:  Furonda marches to the beat of her own drum.  That is why I was sent home.

Jackie:  Are you going to continue to pursue modeling?

Furonda:  Definitely.  I am going to continue to pursue modeling.  I have been bit by the acting bug when I did Veronica Mars and the Public Service Announcement.  I am going to continue to do those things.  I am going to continue to work with Know HIV/Aids and National Association of People with Aids.  Nnenna and I are going to do a fashion show for the youth conference in February.  I am trying to get my website http://www.furonda.com functional.  I am working o n my music.  I am ready to throw myself into my career.

Jackie:  What photo were you most proud of?

Furonda:  I was most proud of the Pantene Pro-V living doll photo.  I love that photo.  It was kind of turning a negative into a positive – the week before when Jay called me a rag doll for the way I danced in the Krumping shoot – I actually got to be a rag doll and it turned out to be sweet and I rocked it.

Jackie:  If there was anything that you could have done differently what would it have been?

Furonda:  I really do not believe in regrets.  I probably would do the same thing all over again.  I would do my Thai dance the way I did it.  I had a blast and a lot of people think being eliminated was the most horrible thing that could of happened but I had a good experience and it was time for it to end.

Jackie:  What was wearing the tiara all about?

Furonda:  I think that I am a princess.  I think that all women are and should be.  Especially with the situation that I was in, I needed my super queen powers at that moment.  So, I had to bring the tiara out.

Jackie:  Did anybody break any of the rules that you handed out?

Furonda:  Not really.  Jade was borderline sometimes but we pulled her back in and worked with her.  (We laugh)

Jackie:  What girls are you still in touch with?

Furonda:  I have stayed in touch with just about everybody.  I don’t think there is anybody that I have not talked to at least o nce.  I talk to Nnenna all the time, I talk to Jade a lot, I talked to Danielle she is here in Arkansas.  Kathy, Wendy, Mollie Sue, Joanie…I haven’t talked to Leslie as much.  I talked to Sara Saturday night.  She went down to the Kentucky Derby and was really happy that night.

Jackie:  Give me some juice.  Tell me something that happened behind the scenes that we did not see.

Furonda:  There are a lot of things behind the scenes that you didn’t get to see.  You didn’t get to see the cause of some of the effects.  My rules were misconstrued.  They kind of o nly added the diva-licious portions of them when they outlined them for me.  Of course you are not going to get to see all of the hard work that goes behind that show.  We worked so hard in a really short period of time.  Of course you saw all the drama parts.

Jackie:  The house was looking nasty at o ne point – who was the slob?

Furonda:  I will have to say that Brooke was not the cleanest person in the house.  Some of the other girls were younger so they were used to their moms cleaning up after them.

Jackie:  I appreciate you talking with me.  Do you have any last words or shout outs?

Furonda:  Visit my website, http://www.furonda.com.  It will be up and functioning soon.  Right now you can look at pictures.  It’s going to be awesome and cool.  My music is coming soon.  I will have it uploaded by the end of the week o n myspace account.  Give a shout out to all my fans and supporters, the people who have been rooting for Furonda from the beginning.  Tell them to not stop rooting because this is o nly the beginning.

Jackie:  Thanks Furonda!  Good luck!

Furonda:  Thank you.
