Brooklyn-born, 18-year-old Slater was the first aspiring model to be kicked off Top Model this past Wednesday (Feb. 27).
During her short Top Model stint, Slater mentioned several times that she really missed her mother, something her mom was totally shocked to learn once the show aired.
She explains, My mom was so surprised to hear that coming out of my mouth. When were in our house, Im like, I dont miss you at all! But I really missed her when I wasnt living at home. She was very proud of me for learning to be independent.
Slater says the toughest part about being on the reality show was living in a house with 13 other girls, but after living away from home, feels like she can do anything.
Americas Next Top Model airs Wednesdays on The CW.
