    If you trace this woman’s ancestry history you will discover she is an Igbo woman through and through. Beautiful- her features and her complexion. She is a role model in Hollywood.

    Does anyone know what she has put on her legs and arms to give her that flawless look I desperately need to know?

    She was once on Wendy’s show she said every night before she goes to bed she uses Vaseline on her on her legs and feet , then puts on socks . Apparently it’s working.
