Lazy Hotel - Meet The Residents: Leggy and Rhea
Hello & welcome to Lazy Hotel. Leggy, please tell us a little bit about Rhea…
L: Rhea is the UK's next top model. Big man in the paint. She models and loves all things creative. Fine as hell with a stinking attitude. That’s a joke, she’s lush really.
And Rhea can you do the same for Leggy?
R: Leggy, a man of many talents. Best frontman (besides Freddie Mercury) of his band ‘The Rotanas’, future cover star of GQ, an artist at heart and a hippie poet.
If you weren’t both modelling, what do you think you would be doing?
L: Music still, always will, but not much else to be honest. Exciting, I know.
R: Anything I can create. I’d create a fashion brand or a fashion magazine.
Can you let us know how you both met?
L: Instagram haha, tragic i know. We met just before the pandemic, so we didn't get to meet for like 3 months, but we talked every day on facetime. She thought i was an absolute legend, couldn't get enough of me. After the three or so months we broke restrictions to meet (oops) and have stuck together since, we live together as well, which is class and yes, it was fast, say it with your chest or dont say at all, hey.
R: Instagram, he slid into my dm’s, i’m so glad he did. We’re a pandemic couple, we talked everyday on ft for around 3 months, we then broke the rules to finally meet and we now live together. I love that we’re always around one another.
