ROSANNA: I’ve brains AND beauty

Celeb’s fight to show she has brains & beauty

Irish Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY SIOB­HAN O’CON­NOR

ROSANNA Dav­i­son is head­ing back to col­lege and told how it’s al­ways been a strug­gle for peo­ple to ac­cept she has brains and beauty.

The 31-year-old model turned nu­tri­tion­ist said her bi­o­log­i­cal clock is tick­ing but her worka­holic ethos is get­ting in the way of start­ing a family with hubby Wes­ley Quirke.

Set­ting her sights on do­ing a Masters de­gree in the UK, she ad­mit­ted it might be a “crazy” move but she misses us­ing her brain for study­ing.

Speak­ing to the Ir­ish Sun­day Mir­ror at the launch of Beau­tique Beauty Salon in Bal­ly­mount, Dublin, Rosanna said it’s al­ways been a chal­lenge proving she can use her looks and mind to get ahead.

She added: “Peo­ple as­sume you’re not as in­tel­li­gent as you are.

“It’s def­i­nitely al­ways a strug­gle when you maybe want to make a ca­reer out of how you look and how your brain works.

“Peo­ple find it hard to be­lieve you do both or be a part of both ar­eas.

“It’s al­ways been a chal­lenge for me to prove I can do both.”

The star graced the cover of Play­boy Ger­many in 2014 and told how her beauty of­ten means she’s pi­geon­holed.


She said: “I think it’s a gen­eral so­ci­ety thing that peo­ple box you into a cat­e­gory and say well if you can make a liv­ing out of how you look then you cer­tainly can’t make a liv­ing out of your brain.”

Head­ing back to col­lege is some­thing Rosanna’s keen on but she knows it will mean a gru­elling sched­ule.

She said: “I’m prob­a­bly crazy but I’m think­ing of sign­ing up to a Masters de­gree next year in nu­tri­tion with a univer­sity in the UK.

“But it’s dis­tance learn­ing so at the end of it, it’s univer­sity ac­cred­ited, delv­ing into sports and per­son­alised nu­tri­tion, so it’s de­signed to help you work one on one with col­leagues.

“I re­ally want to go back to col­lege, my brain misses study­ing when I’m not.”

Aware that time is tick­ing Rosanna in­sisted start­ing a family with Wes is top of her mind.

She said: “I’m def­i­nitely not get­ting any younger so I do need to think about it, ev­ery year that goes by I say I to my­self I can cut back on work but I think I’m a bit of a worka­holic.

“But then ev­ery­one says there’s no per­fect time to plan it.”

The for­mer Miss World turned health guru re­vealed she’s landed a lu­cra­tive dream job de­sign­ing healthy recipes for a string of trop­i­cal ho­tel des­ti­na­tions in­clud­ing Mada­gas­car.

She said: “I was away in Mau­ri­tius and the

Sey­chelles last week work­ing on de­sign­ing healthy eat­ing and well­ness recipes for a ho­tel group based in the In­dian Ocean. “The Con­stance ho­tel group have hired me as a healthy eat­ing and nu­tri­tion con­sul­tant for the next two years.” With her beau­ti­ful im­age em­bla­zoned on each well­ness menu, the group is rolling out the healthy fare in all of its main restau­rants, spas and room ser­vice.

The jet-set­ter added: “We’ve been de­vel­op­ing restau­rants to tie in with what’s lo­cally avail­able us­ing sea­sonal pro­duce like co­conuts and lovely fruit but it’s been an amaz­ing project.” A culi­nary

TV show could next be on the cards but Rosanna in­sisted she’s not a trained cook and is mind­ful of her ex­per­tise.

She said: “I’d love to get on some of the net­works who are specif­i­cally ded­i­cated to food.

“But I’m not a pro­fes­sional chef so the chefs in the ho­tels make my food look and taste so much bet­ter than I do, I’m just com­ing from the nu­tri­tional side which is where my pas­sion lies.

“I’d love to de­velop well­ness re­treats and boot­camps.”

Last week Rosanna opened up to the Ir­ish Mir­ror about her thoughts on the leg­endary Hugh Hefner pass­ing aged 91.

She re­vealed he was noth­ing but

I’m def­i­nitely not get­ting any younger so I do need to think about start­ing a family
