Tami Donaldson won the Maxim magazine hometown hotties contest which is pretty much all you need to know! She’s a party girl who knows what she wants. Check out her interview and get the scoop on this babe’s upcoming gigs.
Citynet Magazine: Where are you from/live now?
Tami Donaldson: From Miami, FL but I live in LA now. Always, an East coast girl!
What were you like as a kid?
Yes, I was an active kid. I danced since I was about 8 years old, tap, jazz,
and ballet. So, that took up most of my free time. I was a cheerleader up until middle school.
How did you get into modeling?
When I was about 15, my Dad and I were in a mall and a scout approached us and the rest is history.
Describe the Maxim Hometown Hotties experience.
The reason I entered the Hometown Hottie contest is because one of my best friends was entering and mentioned it to me. She said, “what do you have to lose.” So, I ended up entering on the very last day.
What has been your best experience modeling?
I think winning the Hotties competition was the best experience I have had in the industry. It has opened so many doors, I have met so many people, and experienced so many things because of it.
The worst experience when I was about 21 and I met with a photographer for a shoot and all he wanted to do was get me naked. He was sooooo creepy. I ended up leaving the shoot. He’s lucky my Dad didn’t kill him!
Are you a big partier?
At this point in my life I’m focusing on my career, so that comes first. But, don’t get me wrong I love a night out with my friends with drinking and dancing. I usually am the one who ends up dancing on the bar or couches – so I guess you could say I’m a BIG partier. I’m from Miami, so that the kind of
partying I’m used to. Currently, I live in LA and the nightlife is a little boring.
What do you do in your downtime?
In my downtime I like to workout, rollerblade, shop, shop, shop, go to the beach, just relaxing at home with my two little dogs is always great.
Have you been recognized as a model in public?
Yes, I have been recognized a few times as the girl from Maxim. It’s cool to know people like what you do.
Has anyone ever run up to you in the street and brought you flowers?
Yes, I have had flowers given to me from a stranger, but it was in a nightclub. I have also had a guy buy dinner for my friend and I. We were sitting next to him. That was really cool!
What’s the most common question that people ask you?
How did you get into modeling? [Editor’s Note: Guilty!] or Can you help me get into modeling?
Favorite vacation spot?
Hawaii! Love love love it there!
Wow! This is hard because I have a few. I love pizza, pasta, chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate cake.
I love house music to dance to, but I listen to almost everything besides country. Sorry all you country folk!
What do you think is your sexiest body part?
Well, I’ve been told my butt because it’s “tight.” haha!
What do you look for in the men you date?
First and foremost, honesty, a sense of humor, dependable, and outgoing and oh yeah, a freak in bed! shhhhh!
Name anyone, alive or dead, who you would love to hang out with.
My Grandpa. I never got to say goodbye.
Favorite upcoming projects?
I will be appearing on a new game show on ABC called the All American Dream Vote, so look for that and I’m also in the running for a another show on the oxygen network as the host. So keep your fingers crossed for that. And of course, Maxim layouts.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In five years I hope to be a host of a show and travel the world and find my soul mate and get married.
