Yolanda Hadid will mentor aspiring models

Yolanda Hadid knows a thing or two about modeling. Not only is she a former model herself, but Hadid also raised not one, not two, but three models who are currently dominating the fashion world. (Gigi, Bella and Anwar, in case you somehow forgot.) So it only makes sense that the matriarch would be tapped to host a new reality show spotlighting runway hopefuls.According to Deadline, Hadid will host Lifetime"s newly-announced reality show which is aptly titled, Model Moms. The series will coach aspiring teenage models (and their momagers, of course) for a career in the industry. Model Moms will put both contestants and their mothers through "an intensive eight-week training program, focused on the physical, mental and emotional wellness that it takes to build a sustainable brand." Each week, a $5,000 prize will be awarded to a chosen contestant to use towards their future career. At the end of the show, one winner selected by Hadid will sign a management contract with Hadid"s company and have the chance to be represented by IMG Models (the same agency that represents all three Hadid siblings along with Kate Moss, Joan Smalls, Ashley Graham and many more). Although I"ve probably missed my window of opportunity for becoming a teenage model, you can bet I"ll be tuning in each week for advice from the expert model momager (and perhaps some possible cameos from Gigi and Bella?).
