No matter how badly a mother wants her daughter to succeed, she has every reason to be freaked out when she sees that her daughter’s contemporaries consider “lunch” to be dipping a cotton ball in OJ and eating it. 

Model Sessilee Lopez‘s mother, Janice Celeste, has just self-published a guidebook for parents with daughters in the modeling industry called "Making a Supermodel."

 Janice said she published the book on Lulu.com because other parents often messaged the self-titled “momager” on Facebook with questions and concerns about the modeling industry.

Models often sleep 12 to a room, steal each other’s personal possessions, and sometimes have agency-approved “chaperones” who are not much older than the models themselves.
