Models Talking (Lying?) About What They Eat

Here is a video of models talking (lying?) about what they eat. They interview Vlada Roslyakova with Kasia Struss for part of the segment. Vlada laughs pretty hard when they ask her, I wonder what she is saying. Snejana Onopka closes the video.
I have no idea what they are saying, can anyone translate for us? I’m very curious as to what they are saying and if they are telling the truth. I’d love it if one of them said something like “Eat, what are you talking about? I starve.” [which, as it turns out, is almost exactly what Snejana says in the video.] – “I only eat veggies and drink diet soda.” – “Fruits, veggies and water.”
In any case, at least we get to look at some lovely eye candy!
Update: Here is the English translation. It isn’t word for word, but you’ll get the basic idea of what they are saying. Thanks so much for translating Anya!!!! XO ~ Skinny Gurl
Reporter says “Let’s see what they feed them here backstage.. sandwiches — interesting, how after eating such food, how do models stay thin?.. a piece of bread with butter and cheese” Then she talks about the “ideal figure” for models and says if someone thinks they get that way from some type of training or diet, they’re wrong.
“It’s not that models don’t watch what they eat”.. but backstage, they sometimes offer models sandwiches and sweets.
Chanel Iman says they’re in Milan so she’s going to eat pizza and gelato.
The reporter says “What do they feed models backstage?” and Vlada says “Oh, you’ve seen? Haha.. Tea (chai).. It’s good if they have tea, usually they have coffee.. some croissants.. usually also sandwiches that you can’t eat — especially after already eating in New York — eat in Milan, Paris, already..” (voice trails off)
Then Hanne Gaby says “It’s hard to find time to eat a normal meal.. backstage they usually have sandwiches, chips, or something like that.. and for dinner I try to eat soup or something else, definitely light and healthy.”
Chanel Iman says “I always try to bring my own food, I don’t like eating backstage because there are too many people touching the food here.”
Then the reporter says “But isn’t this backstage food bad for the figure?” and Nimue Smit says “No.” The reporter says “And you haven’t seen any changes in your figure?” and Nimue says “No, you run around all day, and you need the energy, so you eat healthy.”
Then Vlada says “But you know, in a way, for a month we survive it/tough it out, but I do try for breakfast to eat well in the hotel.. jam, oatmeal, pancakes.. then, at the end of the day, whatever..”
Then Snejana Onopka says “You know, basically, we eat nothing.. your stomach works for the time being.”
