I was suspicious at first, you know the saying "too good to be true", but within a week I got a job for America's Hottest Mom as a judge which will air in the spring-not to mention the countless auditions that I have gone on. Recently I have done a tv spot for Dog the Bounty Hunter which will air on A&E. Thanks again, you have made my dream a reality. Thank you Explore Talent!
