Brittney Guzman quickly became one of the breakout stars on Season 3 of Lifetime’s “Little Women: LA.” When the 22-year-old professional dancer and performer joined the cast she was fresh off a year-long tour with pop star Miley Cyrus and newly single. Guzman, who goes by the nickname “Freakabritt,” was also friends with a number of the cast members prior to joining the series, but unfortunately viewers watched as her friendship with Terra Jolé crashed and burned.
Before Wednesday night’s part one of the Season 3 reunion show, International Business Times caught up with Guzman to chat about her thoughts on Season 3 and her feud with friend-turned-enemy Jolé. IBT also got some details about Guzman’s clothing line, “Freakabritt,” which is expected to be released around Christmas time.
International Business Times: What made you want to start a clothing line?
Brittney Guzman: My fans wanted me to do a clothing line for them for the longest [time]. It’s all about my personality; how I dress, my style and how crazy I am and the things that I wear. They want me to put all that into something they all can wear.
IBT: And what kinds of pieces will the clothing line include?
Guzman: Let’s see, snapbacks to jewelry to sweats to crop tops to t-shirts to men t-shirts… to everything.
IBT: Will your clothing line “Freakabritt” be available for average-sized people as well as little people?
Guzman: Yes! My clothing line will be for everyone!
IBT: Have you always wanted to create your own clothing line?
Guzman: Yes, I have because I love clothes and I have a weird style and no one dresses like me so I might as well put that to use.
IBT: And how would you describe your personal style?
Guzman: It’s something put together, out of the ordinary… It’s kind of like a weird slash new Aaliyah version.
IBT: I want to talk to you about your thoughts on “Little Women: LA.” How was it filming it and what was it like to sit back and watch it with everyone else?
Guzman: Things don’t always seem as they appear. People will do everything they can to be the center of attention and I’m not a sell-out. It’s not what you think is behind the cameras that goes on, there’s a whole different scenario. Reality [TV] is so crazy and it does take a lot of time out of your life.
IBT: How did you become a part of the show?
Guzman: I’ve known all these girls since I was young. My mom and dad had been in the business since I was four so every time they would come over I would see all those girls there… And then Terra, we worked together a couple times and she brought me into the group and that’s how I got onto the show.
IBT: Did you have any hesitations about doing it?
Guzman: I did because it was reality [TV] and reality [TV] gets really crazy and I had heard it ruins people. It ruins things in your life; it’s a whole different dynamic than doing a reality show [versus] a regular show so I did have hesitation about that but I told myself you gotta give everything a try, you have to try it just once.
IBT: Would you return for Season 4 of “Little Women: LA?”
Guzman: That I would have to put a lot of thought into. I wouldn’t know a decision to give you… I would have to really think about it.
IBT: And I wanted to ask about your relationship with Terra. I know you two knew each other before the show, but you often butted heads. So what’s your relationship with her like now?
Guzman: My relationship with her now is we still don’t talk. We’re not friends, I don’t know if we’ll ever be friends. She’s changed, she’s a different person. I think reality TV and her having two spinoffs on television got to her head so I’m not about fake people so that’s why we bumped heads and are not friends anymore because I don’t associate myself with people like that.
IBT: Do you see any hope you two will make up?
Guzman: Well, she’s kind of stubborn and I don’t see her backing down and saying, “Ok maybe me and Brittney can work something out.” So she’s not willing to do anything and there’s nothing I can do so… I have no idea, I don’t know what the future holds.
IBT: How’s your relationship with your other co-stars?
Guzman: The other ones are good. The one that I’m really close to is Jasmine [Arteaga Sorge]. She was also new and the first day we filmed was the first I had met her, and I was like, 'hey, you’re really a dope girl.'
IBT: Briana [Renée] got a lot of flak on the show for her relationship with Matt [Ericson] and their secret marriage. What were your thoughts on all of that?
Guzman: Well, all these girls knew Briana and Matt’s situation the longest and I came in on Season 3 not knowing about their relationship or anything that was going on. So, I didn’t really have the right to say my two sense because I didn’t know the relationship or what was going on. As long as she’s happy so be it. I didn’t really say much about it but I’ve met Matt and spoke to him and he’s really nice guy.
IBT: Are you still doing backup dancing?
Guzman: Yes I am! I do dance classes when I have time, on my off time.
IBT: And what about touring?
Guzman: I would so love to pick up touring for another artist, it doesn’t matter who but I am obsessed with Fetty Wap right now.
IBT: The show mainly showed you as a single girl. How’s your dating life now?
Guzman: I’m not ready; I’m not in a relationship. I just got out of a relationship a year ago that traumatized me but I really don’t have time to be in a relationship. Right now all I’m focusing on is my career and being in a relationship is a job and I don’t have time for that job.
IBT: Anything else you want your fans to know?
Guzman: I’m always gonna be Freakabritt no matter what. I’m not gonna sell myself out to nobody. I’ll always be true to myself and when one door closes another opens.
Part 2 of "Little Women: LA" Season 3 reunion airs Wednesday Nov. 4 at 9 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.
