Over the past three weeks, I had the pleasure of editing Isis King’s America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars blog posts for PEOPLE.com. In last night’s episode (in which she was sadly eliminated), Isis’s fellow All Star Camille McDonald (cycle 2) made it a point to say she, not Isis, is a “real woman.”

And no soul is “fake.”
