    Overrated as hell, even Kim K is prettier and I hate those Kartrashian whores.

    I bet she has some but not a lot native ancestry. She’s mostly European. I’m sure she considers herself Caucasian.

  4. abbracci says:

    She’s pretty. She looks like a mestiza. Mestizas are one of the most good looking.

    She is pretty, but her masculine jaw is throwing me off. She looks a bit manish.
