Anya Ayoung-Chee, one of Project Runway‘s final four designers, had sex tapes surface when she was a Miss Universe contestant, representing Trinidad and Tobago, and those are now getting new attention, especially after she discussed it after the penultimate episode.
During Thursday’s After the Runway special on Lifetime, she called it a “scandal” and said, “my boyfriend and I have had a few intimate tapes and they were released unbeknownst to us on the Internet.” She added, “it was not only a disgrace for me and my family, but also for the country. It took me through the mud for sure.”
That happened in 2009, when clips of sexual activity that appeared to take place at the same time surfaced online. In those, Anya is performing oral sex on a man; having sex with him, perhaps anal; and engages in a three-way with another woman and the man. (A 2009 Gawker story notes that the other woman is not Hiroko Mima, although she’s identified that way on the video.)
