On the new reality series, the former Real Housewives star will be sharing her modeling expertise and coaching aspiring teen models in hopes of discovering new talent for the catwalk. Yolanda and a team of experts will put the hopeful models and their “momagers” through an eight-week training program which, according to the press release, is “focused on the physical, mental and emotional wellness that it takes to build a sustainable brand.”
“With a $5,000 weekly prize on the line to put towards their future careers, only one girl will be left standing to win a management contract with Yolanda’s company and the potential opportunity to be represented by IMG Models in New York,” the press release continued.
It’s uncertain, however, if Yolanda’s children, Gigi, Bella and son Anwar, who are represented by IMG Models, will be making an appearance.
Yolanda, who has been struggling with Lyme disease, joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is season three. She announced her exit through an Instagram post, saying she would have loved a more graceful exit on the Bravo series but looks forward to the next chapter of her life.
“I would have loved a more graceful exit than ‘Season 6’ but sometimes we don’t get to control the endings of the chapters in our life,” Yolanda’s message said. “I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance in my life.”
“I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our home,” her post continued. “Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I’am excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life.”
