From his participation in the “Angels of reality TV”, many will have retained only his cult punchline. But there is another just as daring, less rebroadcast than the one where she pretends to phone, wondering how you can be a girl and not have shampoo.
In tears, Nabilla meets her model Kim Kardashian and lets him go “would like to be her”. A self-confidence which, eight years later, allowed him to take the same path as his idol. Even in the very controlled staging of the film of his own life.
There is Martine at the beach and there is Nabilla conquering the world
With its documentary series Without filter, Nabilla had promised to “unveil yourself like never before”. “I give myself up to 100%. I open the doors to my privacy and take responsibility for my entire journey: the ups, but also the downs”, she assured in the press release announcing the upcoming arrival of these seven episodes shot in Dubai, Switzerland and France. This is the direction the program takes in its first few minutes. The first word she utters could only be “Hi”. “It lasted 22 seconds and that’s what made me famous”, she recalls. She recognizes “to come back from very far”, evokes the bullying of the press because of who she has “many times thought of dying”, the stabbing to her companion Thomas who sent her to prison, her relations “complicated” with his father and the birth of his son Milann. All this, even before the credits.
What to suggest that Without filter will strike hard and true, without ever sparing her heroine so proud to hammer that she has “builds an empire” with the make-up brand that bears his name. Except that these instants confessions are rare in the middle of a series documenting in the end the most bling of a family that we imagine as ours once the smartphones have been turned off. It is enough to see Thomas feeding Milann, who is screaming to take his spoon alone, to be convinced.
“There is Martine at the beach and there is Nabilla conquering the world”, laughs the 28-year-old influencer, who has more in common with the bookstore star than she might have thought. Without filter, it’s a bit like the adventures of Nabilla in Martine sauce. The glamor of the Kardashians on top of that. Nabilla takes off in a hot air balloon, Nabilla goes skiing, Nabilla travels in a jet, Nabilla tries on her wedding dress at Jean-Paul Gaultier’s… A piece of dream filmed like a Hollywood production whose final bouquet is all about a fairy tale. The episodes serve as a countdown to a princess wedding in the golds of the Château de Chantilly. Like Kim, who had transformed her union with basketball player Kris Humphries into a television program.
For seven episodes, Nabilla worries about knowing if her father will attend the wedding. The young mother becomes a little girl again and is never more moving than when she spends time with him. It also shows a more committed facet with the 100 walls association, which helps imprisoned women. And it is this more posed side, far from the very studied image of his Instagram profile, that we dreamed of seeing in this program.
“I don’t think before I speak. I don’t have a filter. That’s why sometimes I say things that people comment on a lot. I don’t want to lose this spontaneity (…), j want to be myself “, explains the one who speaks bluntly about her darkest experiences, from prison to burglary on wedding day. But always drowned in the middle of grandiloquent scenes that lack the spontaneity that we like so much about her. Pity.
