Halie, “Why is My Butt So Big?” [Eye Candy x Gallery]
If you watched Cincinnati Bengals superstar Chad Ochocinco’s VH1 reality show, The Ultimate Catch, this past summer, you couldn’t have missed Heather, the contestant shaped like the number eight. However, the Portland-to-Miami transplant is better known to your favorite rappers as Halie, the name she models under. The 23-year-old, 34C-24-41–owner has bettered videos such as Jeremih’s “I Like,” Trey Songz’s duet with Nicki Minaj, “Bottoms Up,” and Rick Ross’s “Aston Martin Music.” Forget unscripted television—take one look at her frame and ask yourself, “What’s realer than that?”
How was it shooting the “Aston Martin Music” video? We hear it went down like a mini-movie.
That was chaotic—it was kids and police officers and cars and a lot of different locations. I had a throwback scene in the video, where Ross is supposed to be younger. I’m the neighborhood girl that Rick Ross wants to have when he gets older.
So are you the girl that a guy should have when he gets older?
Of course. I’m very catering to my man. I like to have fun, keep it spicy and new, cook and clean for you—I do it all.
Being half-Black and half-White, have you always embraced your curves?
As a child, I had to get adjusted to [my curves]. I used to have a big butt in elementary school. I went to an all-White school, so I used to cry every day to my mom, “Why is my butt so big, and why do those boys pick on me?” She had no answers for me.
What brought you to Miami?
I’ve been in Miami for, like, three years now. I came out here one year for spring break and never went back. I never knew this kind of stuff existed: staying up all night, partying and drinking, beaches, sun. I was like, “This is way better than Portland!” —Bonsu Thompson
