      true. they are getting offers now from left, right and centre. i read an interview where ramey noah said that most actors don’t make money from films but from well wisher who give them connections, and for some of the ladies, they have sponsors

    Chief Willie is my Aunty’s husband; my mom and dad helped him during his campaign. And during one of those days, she saw Bob in his office. So this explains why. Congrats o!
