      LOL, How can she be pure Black if she’s Biracial?? Does that make any sense? One of her parents is a completely different race, see thats what makes a biracial person just incase you didn’t know. Thats like saying Tiger woods is pure Asian. My how smart you sound. lmao

    It’s hard to even get a good look at her through all the makeup. Fake boobs, fake hair, tons of makeup. She’s had work done on her face, looks like she bleaches her skin as well or maybe it’s foundation that’s too light. Who knows? But I’m not sure I believe a word that this woman says. She’s very pretentious and odd IMO.
