Marlee from Season 1: I Quit 'The Face' and Found Out I Was Pregnant!
You may remember Marlee from Season 1, who quit the show abruptly due to financial strain in her family. Turns out, she was pregnant! Now she's got two little cuties running around, but it didn't stop her from modeling for big names -- even while she was super pregnant! Click "more" to catch up with Marlee.
What modeling work have you done since we saw you on The Face?
When I arrived back home from filming The Face, I found out that I was pregnant. During my pregnancy, I modeled for Old Navy and Kohl's. We welcomed the newest addition to our family, a baby boy, Brayden Charles, on April 1, 2013 (April Fools Day). After the birth of my son, I decided to take a break from modeling so that I was able to focus on other business ventures and spend more time with my family. I have worked very hard to get my pre-baby body back and will return back to work this year.
How about other kinds of work or hobbies?
This past year, we started our own business. I also feel very blessed to be able to spend so much time with my children. We also did a lot of volunteer work as a family. 2013 was an incredible year. I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store.
What advice would you give to the Season 2 girls?
Work hard, keep a level head and stay true to yourself. Don't talk sh*t about other girls or 'throw anyone under the bus.' It may make for "good TV" and land you more airtime, but in the real world of modeling, a person's character is everything.
Watch the Season 2 premiere of 'The Face' on March 5, 10/9c!
