Yolanda Hadid is set to star on a new Lifetime reality series called Model Moms.
Model Moms, the show's working title, will star Yolanda as she coaches aspiring teen models to succeed on and off the runway.
Yolanda, mom of fashion models Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid as well as her model son Anwar, will lend her expertise to these models and their momagers as she and her trusted team of experts put them through an intensive eight-week training program.
The program will focus on the physical, mental and emotional wellness that it takes to build a sustainable brand, according to Lifetime.
And Yolanda, who was previously known as Yolanda Foster prior to her recent divorce, knows what it takes to be a big name in the modeling business.
With a $5,000 weekly prize on the line to put towards their future careers, the girls will fight to be the last one standing. The winner will receive a management contract with Yolanda's company in addition to the potential opportunity to be represented by IMG Models in New York.
Yolanda announced in June 2016 she was leavingThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after four seasons. She had joined the show as a Housewife in 2012.
"I would have loved a more graceful exit than 'Season 6' but sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life," Foster wrote to her fans on Instagram at the time.
"I am leaving what's over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is a new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home."
The Dutch reality TV star documented her battle with Lyme disease on the show and how it strained her marriage to David Foster. The couple called it quits after four years of marriage in late 2015.
Model Moms is being produced by Hudsun Media for Lifetime and executive produced by Yolanda, Michael Rourke, Sean Rankine, Mariana Flynn, Mary Donahue, Mioshi Hill and Colleen Conway Grogan.
