    Soccer is my first love - played for 13 years had to give it up - my body just wasn't meant for the game after I started lifting

    I was a child model & filmed a commercial with Bill Cosby, with a bunch of other kids. He was enormously unsettling. Fortunately, I've always been fairly intuitive & strong willed, so just stayed away from him, cuz his awkward & inappropriate over-attention & lack of personal boundaries creeped me out.

    He seemed to sense my ducking & dodging to avoid being near him... I kept repositioning myself away from him, which annoyed the director, so was therefore deemed difficult... & he kept an eye on me (no pun intended), but finally left me alone. Eventually, they phased me out of the commercial, so I didn't appear in the final edit.

    Stranger still, months later, I was asked back for a 2nd commercial with him, which I turned down... everyone chastised me cuz I was passing up $$ & I never said why (cuz the adults around me dismissed kids & their opinions, anyway, so I knew my words would fall on deaf ears), but I just didn't feel good about it.

    Trust your instincts.

    Oh wow. What a terrible thing to go through. Do you remember what the commercial was. I’m curious to see what it was. What a horrible thing to go through as a kid and adults not understanding.

    That’s amazing. And alarming. You had that gut feeling as a child and the adults around didn’t? Or ignored it? Good for you. Thanks for sharing. ❤️

    Wow! That’s an amazing sleeve. The statement is kinda sad.....there are worse ways to feel something though so that’s good.

    I'm not comfortable around clutter. I'm an extreme neat freak and can't lay down at night (peacefully) if there's a dish in my sink.

    😅 I'm the same way.

    I must have the voice of a child, when people ring up I get ask so many times if there’s an adult home they can speak to 🤷🏻‍♀️🙄

    You can replace the extras. The main talent is the $$$, especially a huge brand name. Plus, he was like that with all the kids. For some reason, I seemed to be the only one uncomfortable with it. If others were, too... they didn't let on, cuz they knew they'd be let go, like me. And, we're all there for the paycheck.
