    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.
