Today I had the chance to meet Americas Next Top Model Isis. Isis just completed her Transgender surgery and is on the runway to becoming an all American girl? Â She spoke on being a transgender in America and all the day to day issues she has. Heres her interview with talking with Tammie:
Today was a blessing! That’s all I’m going to say! I got to meet the nicest young lady in the world today. Her name isÂ Isis King and you may remember her on Americas Next Top Model cycle 11. Well her manager Mark emailed me and asked me if I would be interested in chatting with Isis while they visited here to Atlanta.
I must admit that I am not a fan of the show, Americas Next Top Model lol. After the first season I was over it, but I was very curious to chat with Ms. Isis because her pictures were beautiful and she looked very cool.After I did my lil research, I said what the heck!
Well we set up a meeting and I asked Mark what was her favorite foods. He told me she loves soul food, so I took her to one of my favorite spots,Â Sweet Auburn Bistro. We both arrived at the same time and I knew who she was as soon as she walked up to me. She is so pretty everyone was starring. She is gorg,tall and tiny in person. First thing I asked her was what was she wearing.It was a black poofy half shoulder dress. She loves poof like me and said, “I’m wearing Paco”, as she pranced around and sashayed for me! I told her to work!
We sat down and I looked at her and she said, “girl I’m starved!” We ordered our food and got to chatting it up like ol girlfriends that hadn’t seen each other in awhile lol. She told me how it was to be on Americas Next Top Model(which was fab), The Tyra Banks show(she loved the opportunity), her being a graduate of fashion school(she is so creative), being an artist, model and now maybe a possible rapper, this girl is busy! She just loves life and all that it has to offer basically!
Yall know I’m nosey and had to go there, so I asked her about her transition from being a male to a female. She explained to me that she was never gay and that she always felt like she was trapped in a man’s body. She was always been very feminine Â and loved all the girly stuff, so having the complete surgery was a relief for her. She did it in two parts, first the bottom in Feb 2009(which was funded by Tyra Banks). She then had her tata’s done in January 2010. She said she is a full B cup. She does have a steady boyfriend now and that life is great.
We talked about some more deeper things as far a sex but she wanted to keep that between her and I, sorry yall! I learned alot this afternoon I must say! Let’s put it like that lol. Isis schooled me on alot of things and I am so glad I have a new girlfriend lol! She has never been to Atlanta and she asked me where she should go and hang out.
We then got our food and laughed and talked some more. We both like greens,mac n cheese and fried chicken so that’s what we both munched on. We share so many similarities it’s ridiculous. Isis was homeless in NYC not too long ago and so was I as a teenager. She is only 24 now. I then introduced her to my friend, Jayda Boo who was downtown to feed the homeless and Isis was eager to help out. She helped with the boxes of food and that was so sweet of her.
Afterwards,my friendÂ FreddyO swung by to get a couple of shots that turned into a mini photoshoot. He captured some great pics of her. She told me she likes to do fun poses with her legs since they are so long and lean. I asked her about her makeup and she said she does it her self. It was looking pretty good! She also showed me how to pose and use my arms. She was so fun and such a diva!
She loved myÂ Cadillac SRX and took some fun pictures with the car. I would like to thank the staff at Sweet Auburn Bisto, Nicole Carter,Mark & Isis King and my friend Jayda Boo for a fun filled day of fellowship, laughs, poses and more! Meeting good people is always a joy! Keep up the good work Isis, I know you will go far!
What yall think?
