Although the rest of her family willingly participated in the reality show, Aimée said that she’s glad she missed the experience. “For me, I had grown up around having a pretty well-known dad anyway, and … I always really valued my privacy within that family,” she explained in an interview with New York’s Q1043 radio program.
“And for me personally, and for who I am, you know, as far as morally and also just to give myself a chance to actually develop into a human being as opposed to just being remembered for being a teenager, it didn’t really line up with what I saw my future as,” she continued. “It definitely worked great for the rest of my family, but for me, and who I am, I just knew it was never something that I would have been able to consider realistically.”
She also said she thinks she may be aging backward. “Weirdly, I think I was more mature than I am now,” Aimée said. She joked that she gets “more ridiculous” as she ages.
