  1. I thought the show was very interesting and informative, pretty cool how it can be listened to whenever you want just by click…..I was VERY impressed by the information on glamour modeling and what that can do, positive or negative for your career. I dont have Playboy burning up my phone line, but I did see a bit of a different perspective after listening to Mr. Russo. Interesting show and advice from the pros. Thanx so much!

  2. I listen to all of the Bella petite hours and this was ONE of the best shows you've done Ann! Bravo! You have become so helpful by having the experts and pros giving us straight talk on being a model or actress. Keep it up!

  3. Really enjoyed this one! Jim Russo answered so many about nude and porn modeling. Now I have an accurate perspective. The acting segment with Lynette was so good I want to attend her workshops for sure!

  4. In such a short time you've come so far Ann! You make us petite gals proud! I want to do everything I can to make bellapetite become the number one fashion magazine! You are right this is for real women wanting to feel confident and happy with themselves and the oldstyle mags like Cosmo, Vogue just don't do that!

  5. Boy did Jim Russo and you open my eyes. I don't think I would want to be exposed to porn now! It follows you forever and you won't get other legit work you can be proud of!
