Which basketball player, if any, are you being linked to?
“I use to date Kedrick Brown back in the day.”
From the previews we see there’s tension between you and Draya. Are you receiving any flack from Draya’s fans? Was your beef with Draya preexisting before the show?
“No , not at all . I feel like a lot of her fans will flip sides once they see how she treated me on the show . I had no beef with draya prior to filming. I actually tried to be cool with her.”
What do you hope fans will learn about you this season?
“I hope the fans will learn that I’ve grown from a bad girl in to a grown woman . A big misconception that people have of me is that I’m mean or a bully. I’m not that at all I’m actually really sweet until provoked.”

“No I’m not mean. I’m just misunderstood . I haven’t seen the show to see if I’m misrepresented or not, I will say, that I’m the underdog this season and America always loves the underdog.”
What business endeavors are you currently working on?
“I have my own underwear line entitled “Fresh Pear Underwear” and also a hair line entitled ” Whipped Hair ” which both will launch in July.”
