Unlike every reality show contestant ever, Erin Heatherton is here to make friends. She tells StyleList that the best part about being a Victoria's Secret angel--besides, y'know, the money and fame--is the friendships.
It’s like family. Every advertising shoot or every commercial we do, they’re there.My best friend’s Candice [Swanepoel]. One of my best friends is Lily [Donaldson], and another one of my best friends in the world is Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley], but she’s not doing Victoria's Secret anymore. And honestly the best thing about working with Victoria’s Secret for me is that they are my best friends in the world, like, the sisters that I never had.
This kind of reminds us of third grade when all our friends were arranged in a friend hierarchy: best friend, second best friend, third best friend, like the runners-up in a beauty pageant. Those days were so nice and well-organized.
However, the downside of angelness is that it's hard to date.
I think being an Angel makes [dating], well, I don’t know. I wouldn’t know what it’s like to be any different. There are so many. There’s dinners and – it’s fun, I mean. I had a boyfriend for a long time and I’ve never really been single as an adult.
Well, if she's not single, then I'd imagine that would make dating more difficult, yes?
