Despite what you think you know about Melyssa Ford, you truly have no idea who the perfectly sculpted woman is, even though you’ve watched her dance in countless videos from Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin’” to Alicia Keys’ “You Don’t Know My Name.” “I came in the business, selling sensuality and sexuality. I came in marketing my body, yes, but that is a f*cking business. The stories about my personal life have been greatly exaggerated. I wouldn’t have had any sort of career if I had that much action,” Melyssa Ford boldly stated as she vented to #TeamBeautiful about being taken seriously in business.
The former video girl has made a name for herself outside the “Jessica Rabbit” moniker she was given because of her coke-bottle frame. Ford has gone from video girl to actress to TV personality to business woman, getting her feet wet in real estate. While many people will label her as only a pretty face with an enviable body, Melyssa knows her worth. “I wasn’t prostituting myself, but some people think that I was.”
She’s never once been embarrassed of her work as a beautiful woman, shaking what her momma gave her for the world to see. Once in an interview, Melyssa even explained that her work is demeaning to women, but she’s “countered it by being a contributing member of society.”Through charity work with the Center For Disease Control and Prevention, Ford has won plenty of awards for AIDS activism.
*If I was stranded on a desert island I’d bring…my collection of Little Dragon–my favorite band. I love them. They’re going to be at Coachella. I’m hitchhiking in someone’s suitcase. I’m going! I’d bring a vibrator and electricity with me. F*ck it! I could pick a man, but I’d probably get tired of him. I’m pretty finnicky, like a cat.
**How do you express your love…if it’s a guy, I just grab him by the lapels and suck his face off. God, I love kissing. Somebody might get that tonight, it’s been a while. [laughs] Let me stop before I get myself in trouble. I love a man who looks like he just fell out of a tree with a banana in his hand. I love a silver-back gorilla. Grrrrr! Hairy and everything. How do I express love? I would give you the shirt off my back, my bed to sleep in and $4.50 of my last $5. I’m extremely generous with everything I have–my heart, my soul, my being. We have limited time on this planet. There’s no time that needs to be spent on being an asshole. I want people to love me and I’ll love them back. I can’t focus on haters. I’ve got something they want and they feel like they can’t attain it. Consider that–make me a goal, don’t hate on me.
*** The best way to get over a breakup…Woo Lord! I just had one, how did I survive? I called up all my friends and was like, ‘If I call you, that means come over and get the pill bottle out of my hands.’ Scorpios love hard. I close my eyes and fall backwards, hoping you’re there to catch me. It doesn’t work out all the time and thank God I’m not bitter by giving so much of myself. I love hard. I become your mom, your woman, your best friend, your business associate, your everything.
**** The one thing that I don’t like about myself…my tendency to think obsessively, but I recently found out that I am not alone and not special. We all do it, thank God. That let me off the hook and feel so much better when I realized we weren’t alone. I procrastinate. I will think a hole in my head and then not move a muscle. I hate that about myself. I’m working actively to change that.
*****What was your last moment of lust…shit. Well, I’m currently dead from the neck down, so it hasn’t been for at least seven months. I’m counting because it’s a first for me. I’m a Scorpio and we’re ruled by our genitals, so this is a first for me–not wanting to have contact with any penis. It’s choice. My brain has refocused itself and my libido went on vacation, it took my heart with her. I’m just focused. Don’t pity me, I con concentrate for once in my life. I’m good! I’m getting my life in order, then I’ll have romance when I want it. I know it’s going to come. But Bradley Cooper just breathing–lust, there. I can lust after something that’s unattainable. He likes sisters, so I have a chance. Booyah!
