Tracy Marie Briare: Over 1,000 Photoshoots!

Tracy Marie Briare: Over 1,000 Photoshoots!

This month, we’ve got the incredibly experienced model Tracy Marie Briare. She’s been in over 1,000 photoshoots, including Playboy and so many more! She has excellent advice for men on how to treat women. You wouldn’t believe what she’d do with JFK and Marilyn, not to mention she has a pole in the bedroom which she uses for exercise. ‘Nuff said! Read on!

Where are you from and where do you live now?
I am from the Monterey Bay Area I moved to LA at 18. Change is exciting to me so I have lived all over the tmz. I am currently living in Mount Washington and I love it!! I swear my new places is haunted, including photos below.

What’s your family background?
On my dad’s side Irish, Sicilian, and a lil dash of Portuguese.

How did you get started with modeling?
I went to a “model search.”

What do you think of model search events?
Never go to one of those. It’s a joke. They made me use their photographer. The shoot went well. It was my first shoot ever. The event however was a horrible total scam. Not a good way to meet “agents” who were really “agency assistants” who aren’t licensed and can’t sign people. So dumb.

You’ve done over 1,000 shoots which is remarkable! What has been the most influential photo shoot of your career?
My shoot for wet seal was really cool. One of my favorite stores growing up so that was exciting. Probably my first real shoot for something. I was featured on the front page of their website for a whole summer season.

Any others come to mind?
My feature for Playboy’s “the smoking jacket” was a very sexy interview, very liberating. Just came across a 2014 calendar for “dazed vixens” got the cover!! Music video for “unknown” song “unknown” badass crazy shoot!! “Alwayz Therro” did a five page editorial and interview dec 2013, I think or maybe jan 2014?

If you could go back in time to tell your younger self something, what would it be?
Don’t let boys distract or discourage you!!! And don’t date Ryan’s- no offense to any Ryan’s but I’ve dated like 5 of you serially back to back and it’s weird and doesn’t end well!

Tracy rocks! We love her too!

Favorite place on the planet?
I haven’t been there technically, but it would have to be Giza, Egypt. For places I’ve been.. Disneyland because of all the good memories growing up.

Give us a fun fact about you.
I played “Sally Brown” in “You’re a Goodman Charlie Brown” in high school. Sophomore year I stepped up my nerd game and took it all the way with color guard. Flags and riffles bitches, I still can spin.

You’re incredibly sexy… How do you stay in shape and looking so good?
Ahh, thank you my love! Don’t make me blush. I am still able to get by on very minimal exercise. Luckily I eat right. Lots of walking. Maybe time to put a pole back in the bedroom. Damn that’s a work out!!! Requires so much upper body and I get cut real quick with a pole around.

Choose any 3 words to describe yourself.
Calculating. Tenacious. Mischievous.

What is the most common question that people ask you?
What’s the craziest thing you have ever done? Damn, I guess I look crazy to hear that often enough. That answer changes because I get myself into predicaments from time to time. To date I ambushed someone as my stupid vine alter ego “Pink Glitter Mob” with glitter rage. PGM is a g, she always wears a pink hoodie and a ski mask and she pushes Glitter. It’s her currency, drug and weapon. So stupid I know, sorry mom…(again).

How long can you stay away from your cell phone without going crazy?
I’m not gonna lie, I’m glued to the sucker and I am very aware of it. I love it when I’m out with the girls and were all having a anti-social text and IG party! It’s annoying when I get lost in mobile wi-fi wonderland. Damn you awesome apps for everything!!! Ok, umm a few hours no problem. Assuming, I have a good book, paintbrush, or a intellectual conversation going I’ll chuck it across the room.

What happens when your phone battery dies?
When my phone dies at the worst time I’m like bored and frustrated to tears.

Name anyone, alive or dead, who you would love to meet. 
JFK and Marilyn 3-way!

What three things should every man know about women.

(1) As insane as it is, often we are upset at what you didn’t do, not what you did do.

(2) We will do anything for you when we love you, with no expectation or motive as long as it is appreciated.

(3) The reason women tend to hold grudges or bring up the past mid-fight is we are making a point, that you didn’t understand something in the past was hurtful. It’s as if it wasn’t resolved. Very important: apologies must be unconditional, period. “I’m sorry you feel that way,” minimizes the validity of our emotions. Might as well call us crazy. “I’m sorry, but…,” unacceptable and insincere.

Give a shout out to your fans… 
I love you guys!!! Thank you for supporting me and sending the love. It’s very motivating.

Favorite upcoming projects? 
I can’t disclose too much, but you’ll see soon!!! I am getting back up and running very soon and will be keeping you guys up to date that way, or through my social media. I do my best to respond to everyone who comments and messages me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I will be reaping what I have sown from 10+ years of hard work and dedication!!
