Oh la la, what does a homemaker, mother and business woman do with her spare time? Well she learns to play poker and embarks on a career as a model! PokerKnave.com is proud to introduce a new Poker Totty on the block – Gemma Latham!
Do you play Texas Hold ‘Em or Omaha?
I am learning how to play Texas hold ’em at the minute but I’m not very good at it.
What do you think of the game of poker?
It’s quite a challenge but I love challenges. It is a very skilful game and highly addictive!
What is your daytime job?
I am a stay at home mum and agony aunt to all my friends and family which I love!
What would your advice be to someone like Gordon Brown?
My advice to Gordon Brown, god that’s a tough one, honestly I would
tell him to resign and get someone else who knows what they are doing
to do his job, most civilians could do a better job.
How would you describe yourself physically?
Curvy, busty and brunette I’m not perfect but who is?
Which designer do you admire?
I can’t say I admire designers really. I tend to buy clothes I like
the look of and that look good on me.
When did you decide that modelling maybe a career for you?
I have always dreamed of becoming a model but I didn’t actually take the plunge till December 2008, I had a huge push from a good friend.
How are you finding the modelling scene?
It is quite daunting really I am a shy girl and not used to being in the lime light so scary but fun is an accurate way of describing it. Most of the photographers I have met so far have been really nice and
fun to work with.
Who are your favourite models?
I like Jodie Kidd; she has got a great sense of adventure. I also like Tyra Banks as she is so fierce but also fair!
What sort of music and artist do you like?
I like rock, pop, and some R&B. Artists I like include Queen, The
Pussycat Dolls and Madonna.
Do you have any hobbies?
I am learning to play the Guitar, read lots of books and also do
Needle craft seem to be the in thing at the moment, why do you thing this is?
I was introduced to cross stitch at the age of 13 by my foster
sister to calm me down ( I was a bit of a rebel back then) over the years I have picked it up and put it down but it is always something that helps take my mind off things. It is very therapeutic, and I think for most people it is the amazement and magic (so to speak) of starting off with a piece of aida and some threads and ending up with a beautiful piece of work.
What is your favourite entertainment?
My kids and my dog as they can be so funny at times!
Which cuisine do you prefer?
I love pasta dishes but also quite keen on Indian cuisine.
If you had a choice would it be a Prada handbag or a Jimmy Choo shoes?
It would have to be the handbag I’m a bit of a disgrace to the
female population as I’m not too fussed about shoes.
Which city would you like to be in and why?
Not really a city person but I would love to go to Italy I love old
historic places and of course the vineyards.
Would you describe yourself as a wine aficionado?
I enjoy a decent glass of wine every now and again but it’s my partner who is a bit of an expert I generally leave it up to him to say if it’s a nice wine or not to be honest if he doesn’t like it I do and vice versa
Thank you Gemma for your time.
Your welcome xx
