Interesting info in this article. Enjoy the read:)
Mckayla’s parents have not hired bodyguards and she is in talks to be on several TV shows.
Kyla’s parents asked her if she would like to go pro but she would rather return to a normal life (Pretty grown up decision and the correct one IMO for a 15 year old kid.)
“When I got back to New York, my parents asked me about” turning professional and pursuing lucrative endorsement deals, Ross said. “But I just sort of liked the life I have now. Doing all the media and stuff is fun but I’m not the kind of person who likes (the attention). It’s not really my personality. I enjoy sort of having a normal life. That’s sort of how I think of it.”
Mckayla’s pretty impressive response to the criticism of her unimpressed look.
If I was smiling they would say why is she smiling?” Maroney said. “She just got the silver medal. And if I was crying. They would be why is she crying? She needs to be happy about that. So no matter what you do not everybody is going to be happy with it. And just kind of the way it is when you’re in this environment.”
and my favorite comment of the article.
“What will you be wearing Thursday night?” a reporter for a television entertainment new program asked Ross, Maroney and Douglas, the Olympic all-around champion, at a Staples Center press conference where they were announcing the musical acts that will be appearing at MTV Video Music Awards two days later.
Ross was caught off guard by the question.
“Umm, a dress?” she said.
Dear Mckayla’s mother,
If you do not want people calling her sexy and saying things about her for the love of God, control her internet. Parent 101
