Models Say The Darndest Things: Swimsuit Supermodel Jessica White Is Celibate

The stunning swimsuit model Jessica White gave a video interview to Bossip, discussing typical model subjects like dating famous actors, having tattoos and… being celibate. The Sports Illustrated model (/CoverGirl, face of Chloe and Gap) has apparently been holding out for a while now, hoping to find the right guy so she can settle down:

“I actually just made a comment, I did an interview with People magazine and I told them, I said, listen, ‘The only relationship that I’ve ever confirmed was the relationship with Sean [Penn].’ And that’s because we actually had a real relationship. Just because you see me hanging out with someone…I have male friends. I’m the type of girl that always had male friends, more male friends than female friends. So just because you see me with the person doesn’t mean that I’m kicking it with them, hanging out with them or we’re romantically involved in any way, shape or form. And, I know the world is going to be like, yeah, right, but I’ve been celibate now for almost a year. So, the next person that I’m with will be the person, hopefully, that I marry.”

Can’t say I’m a fan of that “I don’t make friends with girls” rhetoric, but more power to her. …And a pretty unusual statement from a high profile member of the modeling industry.

    I didn’t really take that as “I don’t make friends with girls” rhetoric. She just said that she’s always had more male friends than female friends. I’m the same way. I don’t purposely avoid making friends with girls, I just always seem to get along better with guys. I don’t see why that has to be made into some gender issue…

      Okay, I see what you mean there. It’s one thing to just happen to get along with more guys than girls, and another to act like that makes you something awesome.

    I don’t think it’s always a “signifier of worth.” Yes, some women might just say that but I grew up with all boys in my family and have always had more guy friends than girlfriends. I’m sure it has way less to do with my looks than it does my sense of humor and personality.
