Leomie Anderson wants to swap the catwalk for a chat show
Leomie Anderson wants her own talk show.
The 28-year-old British model has honed her interview skills with her podcast ‘Role Model’ and she’s now keen to make the move onto the small screen where she can meet celebrities and prominent people.
She said: “I would love to have my own TV show. Most big talk shows in the US are hosted by men and I feel like there’s space for a female interview to come in.”
And if the former Victoria’s Secret Angel does land her own show, at the top of Leomie’s wish list for dream guests is chat show queen Oprah Winfrey.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, she said: “She’s always asking the questions – I would love to ask her a few of my own.
“I feel like I’d be able to get some details out that haven’t been touched upon in detail before.”
And that isn’t Leomie’s only ambition as she’s keen to take her sportswear brand and blog LAPP: Leomie Anderson, the Project, the Purpose, even further.
She said: “It wasn’t just about having a material item to sell. I wanted to create a community where people can be inspired by everyday women who have something important to say.
“I want to keep growing, to be as big as brands like Nike.
“Vogue is nice, but I want to be on the cover of Forbes for the work I do with LAPP.”
Last year, Leomie – who is in a relationship with rapper Lancey Foux – made it into the financial bible’s 30 Under 30 list, which was a “pinch-me” moment for the model.
She said: “Other models have been on the list, but being recognised for LAPP, something I’d been working on by myself for so long, was a huge deal.”
