Ashley Paige

The fashion industry’s most unabashedly press-hungry member tells W that just because she didn’t score a slot in the tents this Fashion Week doesn’t mean she isn’t gunning for a spot in February. To that end, bikini designer Ashley Paige starred in her own show, Bikini or Bust, this past summer on TLC—but it was hardly the first time she’s shown up on a reality series. We’ve also spotted the camera addict on The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, The Hills, A Model Life, Australia’s Next Top Model, Rock of Love, Keeping Up With the Kardashians and L.A. Ink—surely that’s some kind of record. Refreshingly, though, Paige is under no illusions about where she’d be without all her tawdry PR tactics. “If I didn’t have as much reality exposure,” she says, “I probably would have gone under.”
