Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
Poindexter discussed her persona as a reality television star on Maria Menounos' "Reality Check" featured on the Black Hollywood Live network. “People get intimidated. I’m just such a loving person. When people see me on the street and say… Oh my God Camilla, I’m like, hey and they’re like you’re so sweet and I’m like, yeah! I’m a really sweet girl, but don’t cross me. I was so nice when I first came in and then I felt like I was in a room by myself just talking to myself. I had a reality check like hold up, I’m from L.A., I’m in Vegas, let me turn up and show you all what I do."
Poindexter, who is no stranger to controversy, had this to say about roommate drama on Bad Girls Club. "I think I was set up. They were trying to attack me and they didn’t even know who I was at the time. Something is up with the whole replacement and original thing, but I think that sometimes the replacements are more memorable than the original girls. I think that I was a girl on the show that people could relate to, and I didn’t come on trying to be tough, I was just myself. I think a lot of people saw that and thought, why are they so mean to her?"
When asked about criticisms pertaining to the perception of women on Reality TV, Poindexter said "You’re put in these situations, where stuff happens. A lot of people don’t see the back end of it. All they see is what is shown on television, which is edited crazy. It’s a wild experience to have to go through. They put us in situations, where we would get into it, scuffle and have little catfights. It’s a fun show and it puts me on a platform, where I get recognized and can use that for the next step in my life. I’m just rolling with it.”
During her interview on the Black Hollywood Live Network, the 1st online entertainment network dedicated to African American content, she expressed her views on self-defense. “I don’t want to promote fighting, but I believe in standing up for yourself and if someone just comes and socks you, you need to hit them back. If it’s a situation where you can walk away, definitely walk away. Try to diffuse the situation, it’s not worth it honestly. I know you guys are probably like, she doesn’t walk away, but I am learning to walk away. I don’t just fight people on a normal daily basis. I look at it as a job. I get a check, I get paid, I get ratings and I get fans."
The Los Angeles native also talked about her efforts towards establishing herself as a businesswoman, “I want to own my own business, and I want to be known as a businesswoman. I used to host parties and be a cocktail waitress. I know all of these hot girls. I know all of these hot guys that want to attend these parties and work and make money. It’s kind of like an agency, like a mixologist on the go. I want to be able to sit down sometimes and just make money, but also help others make money too."
