I have been with Dreams Model & Talent for almost 6 months. I was already skeptical of them, they seem very amateur and they're very expensive. Then, to add to my fears, I found this on line posted by another angry parent. Here's what I've now learned:

1) Dreams is actually owned by Kim Flowers, who was sued by the DA for stealing the "dreams" and money of parents and kids here in Vegas for years. Just do a Google search on Kim Flowers or Kim Flowers Development or John Robert Powers (they all owned a JRP too). Also, put the word scam after each name.

2) It's operated by her sisters, who claim (of course) to have no part of the infamous Kim Flowers......... yeah, right! I guess they think parents are real stupid.

3) Their training is the worst! Their teachers are all wanna be actors just working for the money. My daughter came home 2 times crying saying how bad the classes are! There's a guy there named Mr. Lee that has come to train KIDS a few times while stoned! Awful!! With kids? OMG!

4) Dreams represents themselves as an agency. Even their name Dreams Model & Talent sounds like an agency. They scouted us at my daughters school. Not once did they say they were a school, which is fine, but, they should flat out say that. We also complained to the school. It was completely misrepresented.

5) I got placed with an agency through Dreams. To this day, we have received not one call, or even an audition from this "agency" (Spectrum Talent). The lady from Spectrum seemed very nice but, I hear (from so many parents I've spoken too about this and other agencies in Vegas and LA-we now live in both states) she (and many other agencies like her) get paid to appear at these schools to scout. "It's really sad", one agency in LA said. "These companies prey on Hollywood newbies". We feel so taken.

6) Most all agencies we have conversed with say that, although training definately is a plus especially for the teens, if the training center has poor intructors, hence our issue with Dreams, you mind as well take no traning. It's worse to get "bad" training. This came directly from an agent for the Ford Models Agency in Los Angeles.

7) Dreams does not carry the proper license in Nevada. They are a school and need a license for that. They do not have one. Simply go to the Las Vegas Business License website and do a search.

8) The owner of Dream is showed as "Donna Ray". Who the heck is this? A ficticious name? Cover up? Is Donna really Kim? Someone has video showing Kim going in and out of Dreams offices in Las Vegas. Again, just check their public license.

These scammers were finally shut down, we hear by the City of Las Vegas.

If you've been scammed by Dreams, aka: Stephanie, Nicole, Terry, Kim, Dana, Ms. Krystal, Cheryl Murphy, Spectrum Agency, Envy Models, Daniel, Judy, Lee, etc. please call the Las Vegas Police Department, Business Fraud Division. Their trying to go after ALL of them for fraud!

They're all involved in ripping everyone off. They all got money one way or another!

They need to pay!



Dreams was kicked out of their offices by building management on or about 9/27/2010 for not paying their rent and for illegal business operations.

Why is Dreams still open? With what Kim Flowers has done?

AUTHOR: Britni-NV - (USA)

Kim Flowers, now secret owner of Dreams, has scammed sooo many parents, after screwing parents all over nevada for thousands!

We met them through a so called "audition" at the Venetian Hotel years ago. What a scam and well planned thought out ponzi scheme. They made it look so official. Then, we were INVITED to meet the STAR MAKER Kim Flowers in person. What a joke.

So, now they opened under Dreams Model and Talent, huh?

Let's all get together and close these people down.

These scammers try to recruit teens through different schools, at career days. Stay clear and report them to your school if you see them.

Dreams is run a bunch of scammers and their employees go right along with it.

Dreams Model and Talent is a TOTAL SCAM!!!!! DON'T PAY!

AUTHOR: Melody - (USA)

These lowlife's opened Dreams after Kim Flowers fu**ed sooo many parents over. I work at JRP and everyone laughs at Dreams students. Flowers screwed JRP too. They have no idea how to act. From what we hear yes, their intructors are total LOSERS. Out of work struggling actors!

They also pray on the african american community, sucking them in and stealing their money. How awful these people are!!!!

NO TOP AGENCIES will go to Dreams. They get crappy agencies from Vegas who sell them other stuff they don't need.

The agencies who help scam Dreams clients are Envy and Spectrum Talent. People should not do business with these agencies. They are just as bad as Dreams, if not worse! These agencies do nothing for their clients but sell more crap.

It's pathetic. how does this fraud modeling school stay open? Someone please explain it to me.

If you're with Dreams, leave. Ask for their SCHOOL LICENSE, they don't have one!

Let's get together and go after them!

Top Model and Talent Development Scam - Run for the door!

AUTHOR: 78thomp - (United States of America)

I have been an employee of Top Model and Talent Development over the last few months and this company makes me sick to my stomach. They pray on the dreams of parents who want to find success in the entertainment industry, but the real truth is they have no true contacts to actually get anyone work. Their instructors lie about their credentials. Every student who is planning on taking a class from everywhere, please check on and see if that instructor has ever truly worked bin the business.

Pus, numerous times when we have had kids come in for "so called auditions" we had the video cam on but Angelica had me NOT start it and never even record it BUT PRETEND TO! Someone should complain to the BBB and DA as well. All we do is sell false advertising that we will  make klids successful in the business and we have no contacts to do anything

This office is such a scam band all run by Kim Flowers behind the scenes! Don't let these people fool you.  Please do your homework and Google Kim Flowers like the other posting. You will see for yourself all the complaints and postings.

The address and telephone number to Kim Flowers Talent Development was:

9480 South Eastern Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89123
(702) 877-2227

Now they change their name to "Top Model and Talent Development Center" with the same address and telephone number:

9480 South Eastern Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89123
(702) 877-2227

Do you think everyone is that stupid??? Please stay far away from Top Model and Talent Development Center, this is all Kim Flowers. They don't have their proper business license at this location as well, go to and check for yourself! I have seen first hand how they have lied and taken the hard earned money of parents by preying on their dreams.

Don't waste your money and if you've had your money stolen by these thieves please file a complaint so we can stop them from continuing this fraud.
