There’s no denying it—Tila Tequila
has made the perfect transition from being a MySpace goddess and aspiring musician to a reality TV star. But now that she has a long list of accomplishments and a career to boast about, is she really getting tired of being in the limelight? Following her Playboy photos and first bisexual reality dating series, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila
, the reality celebrity has been appearing in numerous magazine covers and has made even bigger waves in her new website, Tila’s Hot Spot
Now that the second season of A Shot at Love
is well underway, Tila says that it wasn’t easy going into another round of the dating game. In fact, she was very reluctant to do it at first. And now that she’s past the whole experience, she says she wants to move on to do different things.
Following her break up with season 1 winner Bobby Banhart
, Tila Tequila says that she needed to communicate with more people to help in the healing process.
"I felt like, well in order to get over stuff, it's kind of good to start socializing again, and not give up. I don't want to close up my heart. It's good to keep it open," Tila told the Associated Press
. "It took me so long to open up like that. My whole life I've been closed up. It feels good. Even though you get your heart broken, it's good to be in touch with your feelings."
So has Tila changed one bit since we last saw her on season 1? She says that this time, there are some changes, and people will have to take her seriously.
"This time around, I'm a lot more guarded. I'm a lot more observant of everyone and what they're doing here," Tila said. "Last season I was a lot more nicer, and this time I'll tell you, 'If you're not here for the right reasons, get the hell out. Stop wasting my time.' Because I really am not putting up with that this season."
Now that Tila is just waiting in the wings for A Shot at Love
to complete its run on MTV, she says that she's ready to move on to other endeavors.
"I wanna do meaningful stuff," Tila Tequila told Entertainment Weekly
. "After a while you reach your goals and then what? You just prance around like Paris Hilton all day long and feel like you have to find the next scandal to stay big."
Is she implying that she has indeed found love in the second season of A Shot at Love
? Is that the reason she wants to move on to other things now, because she has stamped a "mission accomplished" on the falling in love and finding someone department? This might clearly serve as a hint to those burning questions.
"This lifestyle is fun and I worked hard for it, but I think in the long run, it's a lot," Tila said. "I just wanna be in love for the rest of my life and move to an island and have kids.'"
While fans hope for a really nice happy ending for the reality TV star, they still hope to see more of her even after the second run of A Shot of Love
. They shouldn't worry though, because as long as there's the Internet and MySpace, there's not stopping Tila Tequila from taking on the world.
