    looks white…

    • WTF says:

      Not fully. She appears to have African and Native American admixture. Even for an Italian, she is too exotic. I still don’t believe she’s fully white. She looks quadroon or octaroon with Native American influences. In fact, she looks like she could be Mariah Carey’s sister.

        She is famous for tanning because did somebody see her on HOW IS THE BOSS or some FRIENDS episodes ?

        she looked very white and with light brown hair. But with the time she became more exotic

        on the first episodes of KING OF QUEENS she looked like a girl from the next door
