Recent America's Next Top Model runner-up Natasha Galkina's broken English ("I feel myself American!"), KGB-style secrecy about her teenage marriage to a man twice her age, and ultra-competitive swagger not only made her the stand-out star of this season, it also secured the Russian import a place in the pantheon of reality TV stars—at the foot of Sanjaya, perhaps. But what's her next move? And why all the discretion this season?
Radar caught up with Galkina at her Dallas, Texas, home to find out what dreams may come for America's Next Almost-Top Model ...
Will she get signed or star in her own show?
NATASHA GALKINA: "I receive offers here and there, but I'm very cautious because I'm not signed yet with an agency. One New York agency did make me an offer after the finale, but I can do better. And yes, I am working right now with a TV program, but I can't tell you more than that because I'm bound to secrecy. It's not my own show, but I am doing TV, and it will be a huge surprise! Also, I think Tyra is on vacation now, but when she gets back she is supposed to call me to do some segments on her show. She should: I won the Tyra Show correspondent challenge."
