Randy Travis from Fox 5 out of Atlanta reported a story of a mom, Malena Gooch, who confronted two-time Republican gubernatorial candidate Ray McBerry over a modeling shoot of her 18 year-old daughter, Kayla Gooch:
“I took it she would be doing some local commercials in Henry County.” Malena Gooch told Fox 5 I-Team reporter Randy Travis
[The scheduler, Tara O’Neill,] messaged her big client was Ray McBerry, the owner of KBN television in McDonough. Kayla [Gooch] went by herself to meet at his office. She says McBerry suggested a modeling shoot at High Falls Park.
“I was kind of excited, you know, because mostly I’ve never modeled before, said Kayla. “So I was like, oh, this is going to be fun. This is going to be so cool. But it got kind of weird when he told me I couldn’t take anybody with me.”
You can view and read the story over at Fox 5’s website. Interestingly enough, a Professional Photographers of America spokesman told Fox 5 that it’s a good idea for a third person to be at a photo shoot if the model is a teenager, so caveat emptor and use good sense. The news channel also said that there is another 18 year-old with a similar story and will be reporting that later in the week.
