I love her on Single Ladies…. I’m not surprised she is part Dominican. I saw some type of Hispanic flare when I look at her. Greek, Dominican…. that’s interesting.

Is her Dominican parent Black Hispanic?

She is also a quarter Puerto Rican. Her father is of Greek descent, and her mother’s ancestry is half Puerto Rican and half Dominican.
