    shame for us REAL Panamanians.
    but she isn’t Spanish Panamanian, cuz Hogan is not French or Italians so she needs to be English or Irish Panamanian..

    Rightnow, come on.. whites have brown skin and don’t even look white.. the Jersey shore has some that don’t look white.. but they are italian and that is white. I am white, but yet I don’t look like it much, but when I talk to other race friends. they know without asking. I have not even told or shown any that I am. but who cares if she is or not; people like her for the personality not anything else.

    I call cop-out on her mother’s heritage.

    English surnames have been taken on by every ethnic group in the USA.

  5. rightnow says:

    I never would of thought she was part Panamanian… but it’s probably white Panamanian of Spanish descent or other European.
