The former owner of the greatest refrigerator to ever appear on the small screen will head back to the world of reality TV, and no, I'm not talking about a triumphant return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As Deadline reported on Tuesday, Lifetime announced that a Yolanda Hadid-hosted model and momager competition series is coming down the pike. The premiere date for Model Moms (working title) has yet to be announced, but the exhilarating series description has been released (via Deadline):
"Former model and television personality Yolanda Hadid (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) knows what it takes to be a big name in the modeling business as the mother agent to fashion’s 'IT' girls Gigi and Bella, and model son Anwar."
I see no lies. The description continues:
"Model Moms brings Yolanda and her expertise to the forefront as she coaches aspiring teen models to succeed on and off the catwalk. 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."
Sounds like a Dance Moms-meets-America’s Next Top Model-meets-Keeping Up with the Kardashians situation. A Dance Moms-meets-America's Next Top Model-meets-Keeping up with the Kardashians situation that happens to be hosted by Yolanda Hadid. This legitimately sounds like a perfect television program.
So, what's on the line? Here's what contestants can win:
"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."
I have one piece of advice to the aspiring models and aspiring momagers, and it is this: Whatever you do, do not bring up Munchausen Syndrome. I may not know the first thing about modeling or momagering, but I’ve watched enough RHOBH to know better than to mention Munchausen around Hadid. While you’re at it, maybe steer clear of the name Lisa, too. Just, uh, for good measure.
