In 2012, the three top models in the SCORE Model of the Year contest were Hitomi, Venera and Angela. Additional congratulations to Angela were in order for being on the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper in a story called, "Laying out The Bare Essentials" by Mark Dapin in the March 23, 2013 edition. Angela was appearing at the Australian convention Sexpo in Sydney (she lives in Melbourne) and had a breakfast interview with the reporter.
"I'm treated far better in the adult industry, with far more respect, than I ever was at Burger King," Angela tells Dapin, who seemed somewhat overwhelmed in her presence, even timid. "I'm a bit of an extrovert," Angela says, "an exhibitionist, so I like the camera being there."
Angela tells him the condensed version of how she came to SCORE, and it was nice to see the reporter mention the DVDs B.L.O.W. (Busty Ladies of Oil Wrestling) and Ultimate Cherry in the story. Angela also talked about the fans who besiege her at the Sexpo.
"They won't say much. Some of them are visibly shaking. They'll usually focus what they say on a particular scene, or a particular magazine they saw me in. They'll remember the positions I had sex in, how my hair was, all these fine details. Then they'll say, 'What was it like to kiss that person?'"
