  • Thats completely up to you. I would try out, and then make my decision after i find out if i made it or not. Also, talk it out with your hubby - maybe he'll support you chasing your dreams, then you wont feel so guilty.

  • OMG girl, I'm pretty sure your husband is not going to mind bragging to everyone he knows that you made it to the top! lol I am pretty sure as much as you want to and if you have the looks then go for it! I loved modeling and of course I'm a short one too, and I know how great that could be, and its soo much fun. Do it!

  • FYI- AMERICA's NEXT TOP MODEL Isn't what you think it is. It doesn't help your career. And a lot of it is fake. Girlfriend of mine's old roommate was on it and got about half way. Miss J is into sports, they untrain you to retrain you- make you look like you aren't good, etc....

  • lol.. but 5 foot 2?! They are REALLY doing a show for girls this short? They are always knocking girls on America's next model for being "shorter" and usually the girls are under 5 foot 9! No runway will EVER have a 5 foot 2 model.. Be happy with who you are and kiss that dream goodbye!
