The Hadid family is no stranger to the world of television, and their matriarch is about to be back on all of our screens once again. After gaining a huge following during her stint on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda Hadid is getting her own show on Lifetime, with the apt working title, Model Moms. On March 21, Lifetime announced the upcoming show, which Deadline described: "Model Moms brings Yolanda and her expertise to the forefront as she coaches aspiring teen models to succeed on and off the catwalk." Sounds right up her alley! Since the entire Hadid family is in the modeling world, will daughters Gigi and Bella be on Yolanda's new show?
Yolanda, along with her trusted team of experts, will put the girls and their "momagers" through an intensive eight-week training program, focused on the physical, mental and emotional wellness that it takes to build a sustainable brand.
Could there be better experts for her to consult other than her supermodel children who are currently working? I think not. I personally think that Gigi and Bella have to make an appearance on Model Moms, because not only are they expects in the subject, but this family has shown in the past to be very supportive of each others' ventures. Bustle reached out to Lifetime for comment on whether Gigi and Bella will appear. The network tells us Yolanda plans to have some special guests join her this season and they hope that includes Bella, Gigi, and Anwar.
This wouldn't be the first time her daughters helped her out on a show. Fans of RHOBH might remember Gigi, Bella, and their brother, Anwar, making small cameos while Yolanda was on the show beginning in 2012. Bella has since admitted that as she got older, she filmed the show to support her mother. She told ELLE U.K. of her role on the show,
"I didn’t really choose the life I have now...I’m obviously very, very blessed, but being on the show wasn’t about me trying to get famous, it was just trying to make my mom happy.”
In that same interview, Bella also confessed that she's never even watched an episode of RHOBH, but I think that now that she's a successful model in her own right, she and her sister will have incredible advice to give on their mother's new show and might be more inclined to take part.
With some support from her supermodel kids, Yolanda's show could really kickstart a young model's life. The prize is detailed on Deadline as "a management contract with Yolanda’s company and the potential opportunity to be represented by IMG Models in New York." Both Bella and Gigi Hadid are represented by IMG, so I can totally see a fun excursion on Model Moms to the IMG offices with the two introducing the contestants to their agents and such. (Can you tell I was an America's Next Top Model fanatic?)
With the success the entire family is having in the modeling world right now, I think Gigi and Bella should definitely make cameos on Yolanda's show, to offer their mom the support that she has always given them in their careers.
