'True Life' Check-In: Are Brooke And Dana Still Burdened By Their Beauty?

Today's "True Life" explored the stories of two young women whose lives were adversely affected by their beauty. We had an opportunity to check in with them to find out how their lives have changed since filming wrapped -- take a look at the follow-up Q&As below.


Are you still working at the club?

I'm not still working at that particular club, but I did get a new job at a different bar/lounge in my city, and it's going better than I could have imagined. I'm using my bartending skills, so I'm happy my time and money didn't go to waste and that I'm doing something with my certificate.

Has Nolan dropped in to watch you work any other nights?

I actually was the one who told Nolan to come by my new job so he could meet my managers and see where I work. I'd like to give him the peace of mind that it's a professional place and that he can trust me while I'm away.

Have you been going out with friends more often?

I have been going out with friends more often but I realized that having friends doesn't make my life any easier. I learned to be happy with myself, and now, I actually appreciate the time I have alone. I have built a great relationship with Amanda, and having just her on my side still feels like I have 100 friends. Nolan has been cool with me going out once in a while. I think he realized it isn't so bad, letting me go out every so often. I think maybe now he actually likes his alone time.

What was it like sharing your story with us?

It was a little difficult trying to explain my feelings and thoughts the right way, and to try and find the right words, but I got more comfortable as my story went on. I loved trying to make an impression on women and showing them how important it is to be independent.


Do you have any plans to go out with Nikki without makeup again?

After seeing the sneak peek of the show and seeing myself without makeup on TV, I probably will, because I like the way I looked.

Are you still wrestling?

I am still wrestling and training, and I won't stop till I reach my goal with wrestling.

How do your looks affect your wrestling?

Being pretty is an advantage when it comes to wrestling. I do get a lot of bookings and I feel it is due to how I look, but I want to be the girl that kicks ass in the ring and not just another pretty face in the business. I'm starting to prove that.

What was it like sharing your story with us?

Sharing my story with MTV was the best experience of my life! I enjoyed every minute of it! At times it got very hard when I had to talk to my sister Nikki because we never sit down and talk. And then, on top of that, having cameras on us made it ever harder for me. I was trying hard not to break down and cry at times talking to her, because I didn't want her to see me cry.
