Keep reading for all of the details!
Describe your experience filming the Bravo series, “The New Atlanta?”
It’s been awesome. I’ve been having a lot of fun and met a lot of people. Reality TV is different; it’s weird to have people focus on only 45 minutes of your life every week and completely judge you off of it.
You have been met with criticism for your ‘Trophy Wife’ comment. Is there anything you want to explain to viewers?
Yes, I want to straighten out what I said about ‘Trophy Wife.’ When I say trophy wife, I mean a dedicated housewife; someone whose there for her family like a philanthropist that has some hobbies. They may or may not make money but at the end of the day her main dedication is her husband and children.
Is there anything else you want to clarify?
I also want to repeat again what I said that I think the worst thing that could happen to the ‘family’ was women’s suffrage. I think that too many people are taking it thinking that it’s the worst thing that happened to women but it’s not true. I think the women’s suffrage was awesome but when it comes to the family structure–it ruined it. By taking the one person that was in the household out, it’s just broken down the family so much. Children are more free to do things that they probably shouldn’t be doing and the house is now unattended.
Why is charity work so important to you?
I have been a missionary since I was seven. I come from a family of missionaries and I have been to about 16 countries. My Dad has his own charity and we take a team of doctors out to third world countries and we give out free medical treatment wherever it is need. I also have done Sunday school for about three years now and I teach preschoolers ages two to four and I love it.
How did you discover your love of Electronic Dance Music (EDM)?
I love the EDM culture! When I found out about it, I immediately jumped into it because the mantra of EDM is PLUR (peace, love, unity and respect). I loved that when I went to these raves and festivals that they were unlike anything that I had ever been to and I have never seen so many people in one area where no one was stealing, no one was fighting; everyone was really at peace and that’s what attracted me to it. Then, later on I decided that this is really something that I wanted to make a part of my life so I came out with my company Generation E, which has multiple levels but Generation Ecstacy is out right now you can go checkout rave gear and outfits.
What are you hopes for the future?
My future—I want to be a Trophy Wife! (laughs) I think that’s really clear and evident. I want to be a wife and a mother and that’s what I hope.
