    Correction. She also has Scottish, Irish and Welsh ancestry as well threw her father’s grandmother Maria Campbell. The Campbell’s came from Scotland and a woman married into the campbell family named Watkins had Irish and Welsh. She also has distant Spanish as well threw her Theriault line which is the same as Madonna and Beyonce.

    She is a beautiful girl too bad she lost just because she voiced her opinion on gay marriage. It is so true a man belongs with a woman, that is why their bodies are made the way they are. Being homosexual is unnatural!
