Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Danielle Staub‘s daughter Christine is our new favorite runway model, so when faced with a real life supermodel, the gorgeous Sessilee Lopez, we wanted to know if she had any advice for teenage girls starting in the industry.
Twenty-one-year-old Sessilee told Crushable she started modeling at age 14, making her a veteran by now. “I used to tell people I was younger so that they wouldn’t think I was freakishly young,” she told us.
So what was Sessilee’s most important advice for young models? “Listen to your mother.” Uh oh. What if your mother is, like Danielle, seemingly crazy, living vicariously through her daughter and only out for herself?
“Mom’s always have that unconditional love, they only want what’s best,” Sessilee said. “I’ve been fortunate to be blessed with an amazing mother who is also my manager. I take everything that she says to heart because you would want to hear from your mother before you read it [in the press].”
Do you think this advice will still stand up to Christine’s situation? What advice would you give her?
