The Valleys' Lateysha: 'Twitter hate made me get boob job'
Reality star also reveals Rihanna is her style icon in an exclusive fashion shoot with The Valleys girls for District MTV...
In an exclusive '60s style shoot for District MTV shot by Nadia Lee Cohen, Lateysha and her co-stars Carley, Natalee and Jenna glammed up and admitted they're all big fans of getting work done to improve their looks. They also chatted about...
Carley: I don’t think I’ve got any. I rock the pineapple look 99.9 percent of the time.
Natalee: I just wake up and roll out of bed. Some days I’m quite girlie, but other days I’m like a boy.
Lateysha: I love Rihanna’s style. I really look up to her and in my own fashion collection I’ve got loads of casual stuff, but then more glamorous dresses as well, like how she dresses.
Natalee: I always need eyelashes, lipgloss and foundation. I’ve got freckles and I can’t cope with them. I’ve got no eyelashes, because I used to have an eyelash curler at school that I had cut a groove in, so my eyelashes would go straight up. It ripped them all out eventually.
Carley: I couldn’t live without my whole MAC make-up bag. I love it. There are too many amazing products. I’ve got like every colour of lipstick and I just love make-up.
Nicole: Once your make-up and hair is good, you can wear anything and feel lush, that’s why it’s so important.
Lateysha: I was getting a lot of hate on Twitter and it made me self-conscious. People calling me ‘burger nipples’, blah blah blah, so that’s why I got a boob job. I hated my boobs anyway.
Natalee: I’m getting my boobs done tomorrow because I’ve lost weight and now they look like empty shopping bags. Plus I want to join the crew!
Jenna: I’ve had two boob jobs and to be honest I’d go even bigger again. I just love big boobs. I’m like a size 6 on my body, so it’s hard to fit in dresses and sometimes they don’t do up, but I don’t care. My boobs are a 30FF now, but if I had the money I’d have another boob job tomorrow, and I’d probably have a nose job.
Natalee: If you’re not happy with something just fix it. I’ve had my teeth done, I’ve had fillers, I’ve had Botox and I’ve had my tonsils out.
Nicole: Maybe sleep. I don’t really get much, so it’s nice to have a sleep. With food, I eat shit every day. I can’t diet. I try and it only lasts three days. Maybe my weakness is going on holiday... I love Marbella. Me and Jenna went and stayed in a mansion - it had 11 bedrooms and everything.
Carley: Getting involved with the wrong guys, eating constant chocolate and putting weight on by the day, and spending money on things I can’t afford to buy. Literally, that is me all over. Men, money and munchies!
Carley: I just wanna go back over to Dublin, go to a pub where a guy’s gonna play me a song on guitar and I’m gonna fall in love, and live happily ever after. I really fancy Bradley Cooper, and Tom Pearce from The Only Way Is Essex is gorgeous. He’s single right now.
Lateysha: I’d love to work with Drake, musically. I’d probably bang him, but I respect him so much as an artist, he talks so much truth.
…how life’s changed since being on The Valleys
Natalee: I don’t think I’ve changed; I’ve still got my friends as normal and I still shop at Primark.
Nicole: We got curves now. Our Kim Kardashians.
Jenna: I had curves in the beginning [laughs]. I can’t even believe how flat and terrible my hair was in the first series, but it’s gone massive now, thank God. I think I’ve changed in myself as well. We’ve all grown up and become more confident and better people.
Finally, inspired by the Mean Girls sweatshirt in Lateysha’s clothing line, we asked her to assign a character from the cult teen movie to each of the girls...
Lateysha: I’d be Regina George. No, Natalee would be Regina George and I’d be Lindsay Lohan. Actually I’d probably be Regina George, wouldn’t I? No, actually, I’d have to be the mixed race one and Natalee would be Regina George.
Natalee: Is she a cow?
Lateysha: Yeah, she’s a bitch.
Natalee: Good [laughs].
Lateysha: Carley would be Lindsay Lohan and Nicole would be the other one. I can’t remember her name, but she’s quite thick.
Lateysha: Yeah Karen, that would be Nicole, definitely. Then the punky, gimpy girl would be Jenna. Janis! Jenna would be Janis!
