She is one of three models gracing three covers, and “Extra” caught up with Camille at our studio at Levi's Times Square.
Kostek revealed she did not share the pics with her boyfriend, former New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski, in advance. “There's so many things I've found out about him and his career through the Internet, that I thought it would be kind of fun to do a role reversal and see what it was like for him to kind of see something for the first time online.” She added, “I'm sure he is going to love it.”
Dishing on their relationship, Camille said, “It's been a blast! I was cheerleading on the sidelines in the first couple years… I went from cheering him on the sidelines of the Super Bowl to being a proud girlfriend in the crowd to [watching him end] his career on the Super Bowl field… I feel very lucky that I got to be a part his incredible career.”
She said they are enjoying their time now that Gronk has retired. “It's been a fun time already, and I think one of my favorite things that he ever said was he was excited to take a back seat and check out the things that I was up to, like I have for him sitting back in the stands.”
Of rumors that he may come out of retirement, she commented, “He is someone who likes to mess around… I think he is messing with everybody, then again he stumps me all the time so who knows? He could be pulling this out of the woodwork at some time. I would love to see him out there, but I am also respecting him taking this time for himself, healing up his body, and enjoying the time off.”
