        lol………………….i cant stop laffing….trashy, razz looking photos

    • Ona December 15, 2012 at 5:12 am

      I concur. There’s something about her that just screams “hood and cheap”. Perhaps the bold hair cut isn’t suitable for her “strong” facial features. She needs to try something (hair…makeup..) to soften up her features. On the other hand, this is the best i have seen her thus far. From the neck down she looks lovely(love that dress). Not a total betty, but a vast improvement.

  • ima December 14, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    actually, the pictures look good n everyone is well dressed unlike some ‘red’ carpet events where pple wear rags and show off fugly legs. i bet this was strictly by invitation.

  • jyde December 14, 2012 at 3:03 pm
