Donald Trump’s favorite model, runner up in Miss Universe, Rozanna Purcell, is ready to take on the world and she knows that time is on her side.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent she said “I still have so many opportunities open to me in the modeling and acting world. I also have time on my side.”

Although Purcell was the hot favorite to win the Miss Universe pageant last summer she did not. Although she should have been upset she was soon snapped up by Donald Trump which soon put a smile back her face.

She said “I can’t say I’m not glad because I don’t know what it would have been like to win, but I do like that I have been given almost the same opportunities as the winner, but I have a little more freedom to decide my own journey.”

The five foot 11 inch model from Clonmel has taken a year off from her degree at University College Dublin in politics and history to further her modeling career. Next week she’s flying off to South Africa for two months on photo-shoot assignments.

After she’s worked “the bikini season” as she called he she will return to New York to with Donald Trump. Although college would resume in October she said “I don’t know when I’ll be back.”

Since the beginning of her relationship with Donald Trump there have been comments about her starting her career in New York far from home, the millionaires penchant for models and also the fact that some think she looks a lot like his wife, Melania.

She denies this. She said “No. C’mon, Melania is absolutely gorgeous. So I take it as a compliment. I think Donald Trump appreciates someone with a bit of character; someone a bit different from the typical beauty queen, to be honest. I am not the beauty-queen type who can go around the world and wave my hand with a tiara on my head. I prefer to model. That is what I want to do. I am just myself. I am not fake of false.”

That brought her straight on to addressing recent rumors that she’s  has had injections into her lips. She responded by saying “Everyone thinks I have had them done, but my lips are exactly the same as ever. It is just good genes! I’m telling  you.”

There’s also been rumors that she has received enhancing breast injections. She said “What?...I have seen that on TV. But I don’t see why you would put a substance in your body that disappears in two years. They are real. Jesus, if I had anything done it would be a pretty bad job as I don’t have the biggest boobs. They wouldn’t be this small if I had had them done!”
