If you've paid attention to recent hip-hop videos or maybe even watched VH1, then you've probably seen Halie, AKA Halie305, AKA Heather from The Ultimate Catch.
A curvaceous 36-25-41 beauty from Miami, Halie's appearance (as Heather) on VH1's summer reality dating series starring Liberty City's boy wonder, Chad Ochocinco of the Cincinatti Bengals, stirred some controversy when the pro footballer allegedly claimed he had never met her before. With a series of screen-captured private direct messages on Twitter, though, Halie seems to have the proof to back her story up.
Either way, New Times caught up with Halie for a quick Q&A and a peek at a couple photos that show exactly what Halie's working with. Brace yourselves, fellas.
New Times: Introduce yourself and what you like to do outside modeling.
Halie: I am mixed: black and white. I love watching movies, going to the beach, spending time with my family, eating a good meal, and keeping my body and looks on point!
You've been in tons of music videos, what was your favorite video that you've done thus far and why?
I really liked working on the video for "I Like" with Jeremih. He was very laid back and down to earth. And being on a yacht all day in the middle of the ocean wasn't so bad! Also, Ray Kay is a great director.
What artists are you listening to right now?
That's a hard one, but I'm feeling the new Trey Songz album: Passion, Pain and Pleasure. And I love Gucci Mane and Git Fresh.
How was your time on VH1's The Ultimate Catch, how has it been for you since the show aired and ended?
The show was very interesting. It was odd being on the other side of the camera. The production gets to portray you however they like. The controversy surrounding Chad knowing or not knowing me was put to rest when I put the evidence on my website Halie305.com. But I got a lot of fans from the show and it helped me with my modeling opportunities. I think that's the best that came from the show, but of course, [there are and always will be] some haters!
What do you look for in a guy?
Point blank, I need an honest guy. I hate liars. I need someone funny and spontaneous. But in the looks category, I like guys with a little flavor and big lips is a plus!
Any upcoming projects or magazine covers that we should expect you on?
I was just in Hip Hop Weekly. I am also in an upcoming issue of Blackmens magazine and an upcoming XXL magazine Eye Candy!
