Gemma Collins is keen to make a name for herself across the pond and has been in talks with bosses about a reality TV show over there
Gemma Collins plans to break America.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star sees herself as the "girl version" of talk show host James Corden and has been in talks for a reality show in the States.
She said: "America is kind of the long-term plan for me. I'm a bit like James Corden, but the girl version. When the time is right, it will happen, I'd have to get the Hllywood sign changed to say Gemmawood.
"I think America would think I'm hilarious. I was contacted by the people behind Mama June - they want to do her whole weight-loss transformation thing with me.
"My manager's sorting it out now. Hopefully it will work out. You know what it's like with the agents."
And the 36-year-old former car sales woman thinks people like her because she is so straight-talking.
She told heat magazine: "I'm just straight-talking. I'm not one of those people who wants to say something but doesn't. I just say it. I don't hold back.
"If you look nice, I tell you. You're always going to get the truth from me.
"I've had a lot of people treat me like s**t and I worked a normal job before I got famous. I just feel like I don't have to pussyfoot around other people anymore - I've earned my divaship...
"A diva ain't someone shouting, being difficult. For me, it's someone who has been through a lot in their life and, no matter what, they carry on going.
"I think too many people spend their lives not being ho they want to be or not saying what they think. What's the point? Everyone has an opinion, so use it and own it."
