She looks just as mixed as her kids. I’m guessing somewhere down the line she has a black ancestor.

fuzzybear44 December 25, 2017 at 1:52 pm

She’s a Mexican, so it’s definitely a possibility

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 3:08 pm

Mexican women are beautiful. Salma Hayek, Vanessa Bryant etc.

BellaTrainer April 13, 2016 at 7:21 pm

Salma is half arab

She is hardly full MexicaN

Marseille June 20, 2014 at 3:50 am

She put on one of her Instagram pictures #mixedgirlproblems maybe indicating she is half Mexican half something else or acknowledging the fact she is a Mexican of mixed ancestry?

Look mv118 if you were rich like her you would probably stay home 2 and do nothing. That’s why some people wanna win the lottery to have vacations every day!? And she is pretty ( stop hating mv118 your not pretty I saw your pic) maybe she is a [email protected]@@@, but most of the pretty girls are. I bet you if we put your pic and her pic together and ask people, – who do you think is prettier?. Who do you think will win, of course her!!!so there you go;). Her hair is niceeee if I had her hair I wouldn’t cut it short she looks pretty with long hair it goes with her. So mv118 shut up and think first and stop being a hatter!!!!

:it is not pamona, california. it is pOmona, california. from my knowledge,there is no city whatsoever named pamona. i am from pOmona, & we are very prideful of our city. if you are not from there, or anywhere near the los angeles county area, you may not know, so it is a simple mistake. i just thought i’d add my 02¢ ;oD

mv118 August 17, 2012 at 3:02 pm

sorry, to disagree about how “gorgeous” you ppl say is is, when she smiles all I see are GUMS (upper gums) AND A FAKE SMILE, and then all this hair covering the rest of her face, and yes she seems to take good care of herself, what else can you do, never having to do any house work, or any work with a millianair husband, all she does is do her nails and her hair, makeup, facials, and shop. With big bucks to splurge into your looks anybody can be gorgegous. She’s not a Natural beauty, she’s a typical looking latina, including the super long hair, that is very mexican like and the mestizo skin tone.

if this isn’t how you meant it, sorry, my oops, whatever whatever. but i took it offensively&from the looks of it,so did others so i’m not alone….&if you wanna start some type of internet fight, do it by yourself because i’m gonna say this&be done….are you a moron or what?….no?are you an idiot?geesh the crap that flies outta ppls mouths!….fingers.
first off,i’m half mexican,half black.&ANYBODY with ANY amount of knowledge knows EVERY mexican has not only(various)tribal indian blood in them,but EUROPEAN blood as well(Spain overthrew Mexico back when the country was nothing but Aztecs,Mayans,etc.,etc.I myself am Guaycuran indian–a MEXICAN indian.&my best friend is full Mexican,born in Sinaloa Mexico,his girlfriend is full Mexican,&their son is blonde haired,blue eyed….&why?because of the EUROPEAN blood&ancestry.So no,there is no such thing as a full pure blooded Mexican but there ain’t no Black bub.If that’s the case,don’t you think there would be less crime with Blacks vs. Mexicans?I’m from POmona,CA,where half the city is Mexican&half is Black&where for YEARS the rilvary between Blacks&Mexican has been ongoing.Pay no attention to the census reports–over half the southside is little Mexico–which brings me to my nxt point–don’t believe everythng you read because 1/2the time unless you LIVE it,you don’t know squat….Oh,&btw,there has also been an ongoing dislike between Spain&Mexico,&various European Latin cultures for various reasons,one being the Spanish conquering of Mexico.&Mexico is the ONLY Latin country,from my knowledge,that is NOT in Europe,so if uou’re from one of those European Latin ancestries, do some different research you ignoramous.&stop bein so ig’nent!=O

It’s not unusual for Mexicans not to know the African heritage of Mexico,It’s thanks to a man named (jose vasconcelos) and his La raza cósmica theory.See in his theory,he wanted the black blood as well as asian,and native,but not the outward appearence.He looked more towards the Europeans for the look he wanted.He was good friends with Hilter,and he embraced alot of his ideas.Now as recent generations have moved on,they have kept in tune with his ideas.Now if you don’t believe me,that’s fine look it up yourself.Also while your at it,check out the (Los Angeles Pabladores).See where these mexicans came from,and see what most of them were.Check out The black Seminole community in Nacimiento, Coahuila,see what their descendants look like now.I guess you didn’t know about the second underground railroad(that went straight into mexico).Or that the Mexican government had used recently freed black slaves to help guard the broader,because they knew they would fight the hardest to keep their freedom.Mexicans had outlawed slavery,and often helped slaves to escape into mexico.Look up the history of Vera Cruz. Louisiana Creoles moved into tampico mexico,see what their descendants look like now.Look at the history of ( Costa Chica of Oaxaca and Guerrero)There’s far to much I could put down here. Black and Mexicans used to be tight.Look up a group called the brown berets.Them and the black panthers were side by side. Now for some stupid reason ethnic groups fight,and 99.9% of time,they don’t even know why.Some of the reasons black and mexicans fought are simple.Jobs(whites putting black against mexicans).That’s and old trick,but it’s amazing how often it works.Jailhouse BULLSHIT!They bring that jailhouse mentality(of separation by color) out with them,and other gang SHIT.On top of that,the drug game.Now like you most Mexicans or blacks,don’t know the past.Or the connection that was once shared.Now if you don’t believe me,look it up yourself. Also you don’t have to look a certain way,to have a certain heritage,it’s called Cultural or racial assimilation .Europeans have been flooding(invited) into Mexico for at least the past 100yrs(just counting the recent wave).

PomonaMiss909 August 27, 2012 at 4:44 pm

good grief lady–man–you.everyone knows everyone came from africa,but as each generation births a new on&so forth&so forth,the percentage of african ancestry becomes smaller&smaller.so you’re right,in saying it’s not unusual for mexicans–&all other races&ethnicities to have some type of african in them–even the smallest percent….but not aaaaall people have it dear.there’s certain health diseases that run predominantly,or solely in african americans that run on my father’s side sooo i’m guessing he got some brotha in him.my father&his entire family was born&raised in mexico….which proves your point.but there’s still that european ancestry–like i said.&like i said before,if EVERY mexican had black in em,doncha thnk there would be less violence against the two races?i see it dirst hand.schools go on lockdown because of the latino&black violence all the time in pOmona.my father is mexican born in mexico,my mother was born in compton,CA,raised in pOmona,CA.so while i may not know EVERYTHING,i know my ethnic background on BOTH sides,and am VERY proud of BOTH sides….&my comment earlier was in response to the genius(sarcasm)that said mexican is not a race or ethnicity,….&rightfully so i got offended.

Sorry sometimes the site takes its sweet time about comments,so I didn’t see the other two.To clear somethings up, what I meant was fairly recent,not the everyone comes from Africa stuff.Also I didn’t say all mexicans had recent heritage(just going by the dna the avg).Also Mexico still has a good size black mexican population,the rest have assimulated.Also I meant it wasn’t taught on purpose(the black history or mexico third root as it’s called).Now as for the violence,no people are people.They want their way,and some people are just a-holes.Prime example,I have Mexican families on both sides of me.One family is sweet as pie.The other is nasty,throwing trash in my yard.Chicken making all the noise in the world,a teenage girls who bring the boys who write on my wall.Oh don’t get me wrong,the black kids do it to.Also I get into it with the black and the mexicans who put old tires in my back yard.I mean people fight(black on black,and mexican on mex etc),then they fight each other.If asians were around,they would be in it to.We black people know we got african blood in us,yet we still fight each other.So mexican knowing their black bloodlines(the ones who have it),that’s not going to stop thing.People follow the leader,if he/she says fight,that’s what they do.Now like I said,99.999% of the time,they don’t even know why.There’s a black family on this block,that if one member gets into it,here comes the rest(and they don’t even ask what’s going on),see trashy people.

my other comment is in moderation,so just in case it doesn’t go through,I wrote this one.First my replay was to the part of your statement,full pure blooded Mexican but there ain’t no Black bub.I was just letting you know you were incorrect,I wasn’t attacking you.Also I didn’t say all Mexicans had recent black heritage.The places I gave are where the more African looking Mexicans are at,the rest have assimilated.Like I said look these places up,you might be pleasantly surprised.Now Mexicans knowing their African past or that they may have the blood,isn’t going to stop anything,People follow the leader.Like I said,they don’t know why they are fighting each other.It could have been something as stupid as someone stepping on someone shoe.Next thing a fight,friends get into,the other guy friend get into,and there is you cycle of hate.New kids move in the hood wanting to make friends,what do you do except join the cycle. We black people know we got african blood in us,yet we still fight each other.So that has nothing to do with it.

PomonaMiss909 August 27, 2012 at 5:01 pm

&yes,it is sad–down right pathetic how things are in society today.unfortunately,you go with what you look like.the way it was growing up&the way it is today,if you’re half black,you’re black.point blank.i’m half but look like i’m full black so i got treated like i was.the racial tension starts from a young age,&while you&your childhood friends pick roses&daises as kids,when you guys hit high school,you go with what you look like–no matter WHAT you identify yourself with.&you act like you never even knew each other.jail system is the same.it’s called survival.&in jail you do what you’re supposed to do–not what you think is right.loke i said it’s unfortunate but it’s reality….&it’s never gonna change.

Well can’t disagree with you,I went to a predominant white school,and the black kid did group together,with a couple of white kids in each group.Now the your black period part,it depends on who you hang out with.If I met you,and you said you were a Latina,then that’s what you would be to me.I never have a problem with people saying their half whatever,it’s only when they dis the black part(like it’s the worst thing you could have in you).Most people don’t know about darker skin Latinos or Afro-Latinos,I do apologize if either one of these terms is offensive to you.Because they are not really talked about.My brother girlfriend is like you,except she takes more after her mother side of the family Salvadoran/Afrocuban.Her matrilineal grandfather on the Salvadoran side,was the last person on that side that displayed any signs of black blood.My neighborhood is pretty mixed with Latino and black.Sometimes there are problems, with the gangs,that are a few blocks away.The people in my neighborhood tend to get along,but I do know how it is in other neighborhoods.Now as far as things never changing,going by a lot of the comments on here from Latinos,it seems to be that way.I do indeed hope your wrong,like I said,black and Latino were once tight.

Oh p.s
Did you check out any of those things I ask you to look up,about black people in Mexico?

“Mexican” is not a race.

Hudson March 18, 2012 at 7:11 am

Technically neither is Irish. However if someone said the were Irish I would assume they were white. By someone saying they are Mexican I assume they are either white, mestizo, or native.

Ricki March 19, 2012 at 3:37 pm

She is a Mexican mestiza bit more Native than Euro percentage wise.Who knows that would be my guess. I know it annoying when people a person look Mexican bit i think when they say it they usually mean a mestizo.

dani March 7, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Vanessa is absolutely gorgeous. I really admire the beauty of native North/Central/South American and Caribbean women. I find their features to be so striking, and Vanessa has a beautiful smile. Her kids are adorable as well, I can see both parents in them, they got the best features of both. :P

Ok, you’ve got to get that Lasik surgery to improve your vision. She looks nothing like Kim Kardashian. I wouldn’t mistake one for the other.

she looks like my best friend who also happens to be Mexican and very gergeous right from the start i knew she was Mexican Im from California and you see a lot of Mexican/Latina Girls resemble Vanessa!

KEVKNOCKS February 16, 2012 at 5:30 pm

she looks straight Mexican you can tell right away by her beautiful olive complexion and full lips ..and whoever said she looked Arab get your eyes checked Vanessa has a small nose and is not hairy or dark like most Arab chicks no offense

jbriz February 20, 2012 at 8:23 pm

No offense??? You expect people to not get offended by your uncultured and idiotic remark? FYI, many Hispanics are of Arabic background… Crack a book asshole!!!

dani March 7, 2012 at 2:29 pm

I agree that Vanessa is gorgeous, and she has beautiful indigenous features that I’ve seen in many other Mexican girls, but the second half of your comment was rather ignorant.
I doubt you have seen many Arab women. I lived among large communities of Syrian, Palestinian, Lebanese, and Egyptians…etc for 6 years. They were much lighter than Vanessa, (many Arab women are pale, especially in the Levant) and hairiness can be a genetic thing for the most part, but they always had their eyebrows beautifully shaped. That was one thing I remember about them, how nice their eyebrows always looked. You should get out more.

Saeed f. March 23, 2012 at 1:43 am

I’m Arab and actually Arab women are more on the darker side then Latin Women but both very beautiful!

In this country race issues r really business black are always portrayed as sexual object ; men is just a breeder I thinks the history is repeating
It is very sad. Vanessa doesn’t care about Koby a d her children but the money the kid just need their parents at home

alittlehelp91 December 19, 2011 at 5:54 pm

People mexicans are mostly of white and native american decent. Yes I know there was slavery in mexico but blacks are a small minority. The Spanish way of conquering was to mix with the natives and assimilate them into their culture. Also about Eva Longoria she is from Texas a slave state.

Geri January 7, 2012 at 2:55 pm

I was reading the “History of Disease”. The Spanish killed 90some % of the native population. Mostly they sent small pox to them. the Natives thought the Spanish were gods because they didn’t get the Small Pox because they had built up an immunity to the disease in Europe.
As an ,aside those of you who don’t get your kids vacinnated,you should read this book. My daughter took her 9 yo child to the Dr and got all her vacnactions as soon as we ewere done reading it.

RICO January 23, 2012 at 4:07 pm

SPANISH ARE SPANISH BLACK IS BLACK WHITE IS WHITE
BRAZILIAN IS BRAZILIAN ect. These are people of color. 3/4 of the world is people of color. Not that that makes anyone any better than another race. The only race is the human race. If a person is black that makes him evil or ugly or less attractive? You cant look at somone and assume what they are. People assume that when they see someone wiht light skin they are white. In south african the skin is light in color not all but enough. They are african, but if the skin is black you will call them african like its distasteful. Check yourself before your racist sicknes spreads to your children. Remember Adam and Eve people of color from where???????

dd December 18, 2011 at 9:29 am

Stop sterotyping people! Africa has a huge variety of people. No ones knows the origin of all of their forefathers. Why can’t people remember that one GOD made us all. Are we saying that he did something bad by creating variety? We are all just humans. GOD does not care about who your parents or their parents were. But he does not like people who hate others because of a false superiority attitude. Get real cause we all bleed red blood!

lol how can u look hispanic idiot. just cuz someone is brown doesnt mean he/she is hispanic. when will americans start to acquire some real knowledge and start making a difference between race nationality and ethnicity. latino or hispanic are just terms used to determine culture. u can be fully white or black and still be mexican. its like saying someone looks american.

Raga December 18, 2011 at 1:00 am

I think you are proving your ignorance here. You look Hispanic by facial features. The cheek bones of a Hispanic are different than a black’s or white’s. A black person’s nose is different than a white person’s. This is basic anatomy that any 2nd grader should understand (which you don’t obviously). “U can be fully white or black and still be mexican” -well, only if you immigrated there from outside Mexico. So based on your logic, a white person living in South African is actually black since they live in Africa. I think you need to acquire some knowledge. There are basic differences between races in how they look.

Sara December 17, 2011 at 2:07 pm

Actually, her real father is black. Her mother is Hispanic/Mexican. She is partially black and Hispanic. Hispanics can look white, black and in between.

Jeff December 18, 2011 at 12:47 am

I hear ya. Those are the same kind of propaganda artists that try to claim Cleopatra was black too. History says Cleopatra was Greek, but these deceitful libs try to change history and say she was black. It’s also about distorting the truth. That’s what libs do best, lie and distort the truth.

hey jeff just think about it she was an egyptian queen now she may not be black ( as in african american jamaican black etc.) but just look at the people that live there now in that area now you will have egyptians now who are of darker skin possibly arab looking or you have the people from Sudan which is were the Nubians came from in anctient times they were black as in there skin was black look at pictures of sudanese people today do they look greek to you?? no do egyptians today look greek dont think so its ok your in denial because someone that we were taught in school that was so beautiful and so admired looked like Elizabeth taylor that was unrealist and if you look at the people that live in those areas now is probably what she would look like today she could have had black skin neither you or i was there but i am pretty sure she was not from greece ruling an african country no more than someone african would be in greece ruling over greece above other greek people that is just insane

ashley December 29, 2011 at 8:56 pm

Jeff Cleo was of mixed race what book have you been reading. See people have trouble accepting the fact that history is more than European ; that alter European history and have to acknowledge the truth real history. See people want to keep Africa as a uncivilized continent ; in fact it is rich continent back than and still is . Africa has so much history startin with Eygpt, Morroco and so on. The true Egyptians where of a golden to black complexion disregard the middle eastern immigrants that migrated to Egypt a long time ago . I mean their where probally middle Eastern as a matter of fact Middle East was part of Africa . What I am trying to say is history does not belong t European . History belongs to every ethnicity; because every ethnic group has people that shape this world with the help of God. Africans where not just walking around half naked, slaves and thats it ; they were and still is inventors , conquerors , explorers , fighters, educators , and so on ; I can say the same thing for Asians and ther races .

To mexicanmamacita

Are you saying he’s half African American and half Dominican?Because I have to agree with (Anonymous),the way you described your fiance really doesn’t make sense,I’m not trying to offend you,I just see what he/she means.I know you guys refer to us as black,so is that what you mean?or is he a white or mixed Dominican?

Are you Arabic by the way?

betty August 16, 2010 at 4:13 pm

Arabs are not gorgeous. they do have good complication though. The Arabs idea of gorgeous is Nancy Ajam, who after many surgery and makeovers still looks odd.

fuzzybear August 16, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Nayeli June 30, 2010 at 5:05 am

I’m suprised that she’s Mexican because many people on the Mexican radio shows were saying that she is from Salvadorian and Irish decent or other Latin American countries but I never thought Mexican. And she’s really pretty!

ethnic June 30, 2010 at 8:53 am

Sandra May 28, 2010 at 1:40 am

I’m pretty sure the part of Mexico her family is from is Baja, because I’ve read that after her parents divorced her father moved back to Baja. Off the ethnicity subject, I think Vanessa is so pretty! Her and Kobe made cute kids too! LoL

Anonymous May 18, 2010 at 7:15 am

Were from mexico are her parents from

ghyghtyhyjdsxde April 12, 2010 at 6:48 pm

“Kobe, who is fluent in Spanish and Italian is no stranger to the Latin culture as he grew up in Italy as a young child. And yes Italians are also Latin.”

Latin culture and Latin are two different things. Mexicans and Italians have no relation!

Anonymous August 16, 2010 at 7:44 pm

Culturally,much of latin music is afro cuban influenced and the food is very heavily African influenced. The Spanish transported over 300,000 Africans to Mexico. That is why African genes are detected in Eva and George’s DNA. The Moors of Africa were stationed in Spain for HUNDREDS of years. At least one of Mexico’s most important presidents, Guerrero, was of African heritage. Read Ivan Van Sertima’s book about Africans in Mexico before Columbus.

Fuzzybear August 16, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Your have to go that far to find that out.The thing is they don’t teach this infromation in the northern part of Mexico ,at least from what I’m seeing.You tell a Mexican they have African heritage,they have a heart attack.However tell them they got Irish heritage,well now that’s seem to be ok with them;that’s crazy huh!
