There’s a new lady in the City on the second season of Bravo’s hit show Blood, Sweat & Heels, and the Englishwoman knows a thing or two about making an entrance! We were first introduced to Chantelle Fraser during the series’ Apr. 5 episode, and she’s quickly becoming a standout as she begins her first season on the show.
But if seeing her once a week isn’t enough for you, then fret not, because the reality TV newbie will be dishing on all things Blood, Sweat & Heels in her weekly Chantelle’s Tea Time column on OKMagazine.com! In the exclusive collaboration with OK!, she’ll be sharing her take on the must-see moments from each episode and breaking down all the drama between the ladies.
And to kick off our exciting series with the entrepreneur, we’ve asked her a few questions about her debut episode on the show. She talks joining the Blood, Sweat & Heels cast, if really was that hot at Melyssa Ford’s play and why Demetria Lucas calling out Daisy Lewllyn for not speaking to her was just a tad “awkward.”
OK!: Were you nervous about meeting the ladies for the first time at Melyssa's play?
Chantelle Fraser: I was extremely nervous meeting all the girls together for the first time at Melyssa’s play. I mean talk about being thrown to the wolves! But I gotta tell you it was much better than I expected it to be. Daisy and Mica welcomed me with open arms. And Demetria, although she has a rather reserved disposition, treated me with kindness and warmth. So I felt great!
OK!: Was it really that hot in the theatre!?
Fraser: It was hot as balls in that theatre. I ruined my make up! I wanted to be on fleek for my first appearance, not a sweaty Betty!
OK!: Did Geneva's existing drama with Daisy and Mica make it difficult for you to initially connect with those ladies?
Fraser: Not at all. Geneva and I are great friends, however, I am my own woman. I have never been much of a follower. I don't believe in letting someone else's opinions of others influence my judgement, and I wouldn't expect that from anyone else either.
OK!: And was it awkward talking to Mica about her breakup with Terry?
Fraser: Yeah, I felt like a bit of a Knob because I thought they were still together. I didn't expect her to say they broke up, and I felt embarrassed because I felt I may be putting her in an awkward position talking to a complete stranger about her love life. She did oblige me though, and it ended up being fun, talking about places where we could meet eligible bachelors!
OK!: What drew you to Daisy because you two appeared to be hitting it off at the after party for Melyssa’s play?
Fraser:I liked Daisy instantly. She was light and easy. She didn't come to me with any barriers, walls or ego. That's my type of gal. I am attracted to people who make me feel good. It's that simple.
OK!: And what was your reaction to Demetria calling Daisy out for not speaking to her?
Fraser: That was awkward to the power of 10! It's strange, though, because I think that although the execution was completely off, I believe that her intentions were good. I think she probably wants to make up with her and move on.
