Janice Dickinson: ‘I’m Just Like Michael Phelps’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One-of-a-kind Olympic legend Michael Phelps may have a twin in supermodel diva Janice Dickinson.

Dickinson – the self-proclaimed world’s first supermodel – says she’s just like the Olympic record- breaking swimmer in heart and spirit.

She explains, “Phelps’ dedication and drive reminds me of myself. At nine years old I knew I wanted to be a model, and at nine years old he was in the pool.”

Dickinson wanted to rule the runway so bad as a kid, that she’d hang out at grocery stores to catch up on the latest fashion trends.

She says, “I couldn’t afford to buy magazines, so I’d lay spread-eagle on the tile floor at grocery stores for hours reading American Vogue. I’d see Lauren Hutton on the pages and I wanted to be that girl.”

Passion is what Dickinson looks for in aspiring models, and because of Phelps’ commitment, she’d hire him “in a heartbeat” to be a model for her agency.

Season four of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency premieres next Tuesday (Aug. 26) on Oxygen.
