Those things have come to the surface and I’ve been dealing with them as they come. It might be three years now but definitely two years. I write what’s happened to me so it’s really raw and it comes from my heart and soul and it may not be the best music and people might not always like it but I know that it’s true.
The good news is that I’m dealing with it, I’ve dealt with it and I do understand and hopefully you know grown as person and hop I can inspire other people in that way, as well. When it comes this is what really comes out of me so I can’t give any more than that.
Sure, of course, because we’re all human and we all connect but, at the end of the day, life goes on and we all go on to our next thing.
You’ve battled substance abuse since after the show, can you talk about that? I was just born into this type of thing which is something that I have been doing for a long time and [this lifestyle] just maybe amplified it. I think that’s just a part of who I am but I’ve overcome those things now. My current project is called Black Star Electra but I’m actually getting ready to start another solo project and the name of that is called Ghost Generation.
To know that people were that interested in me and that the producers and everyone at VH1 thought I was you know “something.” They saw something in me and I thought that was just magical. It’s hard to, you know, you gotta be interesting and funny, and beautiful or whatever and hopefully people love you and they watch you and your career flourishes and you go on [Laughs] Did the show feel real? For me as an aspiring actress and someone who aspires to be in the entertainment business I have been lucky enough to have a taste of it. There’s Daisy and then Daisy on the show and those lines don’t blend.
As an artist, I’m vulnerable to whatever people who are making a show or whatever it is want to get out of me because that’s my job. I was fluid and I was very vulnerable because that’s the position people probably wanted you know be able to put yourself in so that you can easily be affected and I was. I mean, they do sometimes but you know outside of that it wasn’t real.

Did you feel like other women there were really falling for Bret? What I do know is that if there was something that would have been able to transpire after the show on a more personal level without the cameras then that would be up to you know each individual but I honestly I didn’t really see that. I think some of the girls just sorta being as free as possible and really getting to know Bret on a different level and you know getting to experience his talents firsthand with his music and stuff.What’s your favorite behind the scenes moment, something we didn’t see play out on camera? I think that was really cool as a musician and all that so I think that’s great.I just feel the whole entire thing was a great experience.I never experienced that kind of atmosphere that they you know were working in for a TV show.That was my first television show I ever did so I just sorta went with the flow.
