I’m in the new Foster the People music video for “Best Friend” eating models! I play a runway model who is insecure about my looks, and I’ve discovered that if I eat younger models I can stay young and pretty by absorbing their beauty.… Read more

I’ve been to my share of “young mom” commercial auditions in the past year, but have yet to book one. I’m in that weird age group where I’m slightly too young looking to be considered a “yogurt-loving-mom” but still too old to be an “attractive hot model.” My agent sends me on the “mom” auditions because I’d rather get lucky at a Pampers audition than have to dance in front of a room full Rockstar Energy Drink CEOs all named “Ryder” while wearing a bikini at a “pool party.”
Yesterday I had an audition to play a “cool ex-hipster kind of mom” for a commercial.… Read more
I haven’t lived in the same place for over 2 years since my childhood home. I’ve had to change my address countless times over the last 10 years. I’ve spent months at a time living out of a giant suitcase and being amazed that I didn’t need all my “stuff” to be comfortable.… Read more
My latest post for xoJane.com:
I’m sorry, but I don’t think I can be with you anymore. I’ve tried different ways to make it work for us, but I honestly don’t know if we’re the perfect fit. I tried blow-drying you different ways, using different brushes and flat irons, but nothing has worked consistently.

I’ve been lucky enough to avoid the more shady stuff that happens within the entertainment industry of LA. My agency sifts through all the commercial AND print jobs and only sends me on legit castings, but sometimes it’s hard for them to know what happens at every single casting studio in LA.… Read more

Nearly half of all men in the world climax with two minutes, according to a study done by Dr. Harry Fisch, author of a new book called “The New Naked: The Ultimate Sex Education for Grownups.” He also says most women need an average of 5-7 minutes of vaginal penetration to reach orgasm.… Read more
Where the f#ck are my boobs?
When I was 13, I remember thinking, “Man, I can’t wait to get boobs.”
My grandmother, mom, and sister all have great boobs, so it made sense that I would soon have them. Well, it never happened.
I love shopping and fashion. I look at all the new collections each season and pick out which pieces are my favorite.
When it comes to buying designer items, I’m very cautious with what I pick because it’s usually expensive and I want it to last a while.… Read more
When I was 19, I moved in with my 24-year-old boyfriend and his tattoo artist best friend. It was perfect, since we had been together for two years and hung out all the time anyway. Of course when you’re that young, you assume you’ll get married and be together forever.… Read more
I’m not one to blame my shortcomings on bad parenting or a messed-up childhood, but if you spend the first 18 years of your life not hugging anyone or hearing, “I love you,” things can get a little awkward later in life.… Read more
I don’t disagree with the consensus that doctors are overprescribing medications for mental disorders, but I’m not sure I’d be where I am without them.… Read more
Last year my boyfriend was hired to work on a movie that was shooting in the UK. He had to move there for nine months and we decided that I would fly out and stay with him while he was working.… Read more
The worst thing that could happen to a model is getting hit in the face. The second is getting a giant zit on your nose, and the third is pink eye. Well, dying would suck, but aesthetically those are pretty bad.… Read more
Most of my income from modeling comes from showrooms.
I had no idea they even existed until I booked my first job the same day I signed with my New York agency. After a few years of being a showroom model, it has become sort of like a day job.… Read more
THANK GOD for Accutane.
It completely changed my life. I wish a doctor had given it to me at 15 rather than 25, though. No one told me to stop eating cheese and chocolate and all those deep fried mozzarella sticks that were probably making my skin worse.… Read more
I wrote an essay for Aeon about my life as a model.
I remember reading Joan Didion’s Goodbye To All That essay about New York City before I even left Michigan. Eight years later I understand it completely.
One of my favorite quotes from it:
“…it never occurred to me that I was living a real life there.… Read more
