    Is her mother Italian, too? I think there are hardly any 100% Italian-Americans born after 1970. Ariana Grande is a rarity.

    Is she related to Nick Milano?

    And the funny thing is, though idiots like Boris use that stereotype on everyone of Mediterranean/Latin descent little do these idiots know it was actualy the Mediterraneans who started the practice of women shaving, it was Ancient Greece & Rome, before those two ancient civilizations no woman on earth shaved, Shaving among women started after the greeks & romans, so by all means it was probably YOUR people that were hairy and disgusting.

      wrong. women have been shaving their bodies for ever since Time immemorial, archaeological evidence shows that both male and females have been shaving their head and bodies since way before rome ever existed. it was actually a necessity to prevent frostbite in cold climates and of more advanced societies such as, Greece, Rome Egypt etc. it was Egypt who really loved its hair removal processes
