Former supermodel, author, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid is coming back to your televisions. And this time will be even more cutthroat than being a Real Housewife.

Anyone who has ever watched Project Runway or America’s Next Top Model can agree with Hadid when she states, “Supermodels aren’t born overnight.” And neither is a successful personal and working relationship between mother and daughter.

Featuring help from two of the biggest supermodels in the world right now — and Hadid’s own daughters — Gigi and Bella Hadid, the television personality will offer her support and guidance to aspiring young models both on and off the runway. On the line is a weekly $5,000 prize for their future careers, the gift of winning a management contract with Hadid, plus the potential opportunity to be represented by IMG models in New York.

The eight-episode series follows six teenagers alongside their “momagers” through an intensive training program focused on the physical, m

ental, and emotional strength needed to create a successful brand as a model, something Hadid and her children know all too well. Oh, and in true reality-television competition form, all the contestants and their mothers live under one roof.

Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid premieres Jan. 11 at 10 p.m. ET on Lifetime. You can watch the full sneak peek above.
