    c’est pour ça qu’elle est partie de POI …

    elle en avait marre de cette série …

  • Jenny from the flop

    It ain’t tho. Only people who watch it are the black folks. Show is boring and trash. There isn’t a single white person on that show its like trying to spot a smurf. As a mixed black, Spanish, Irish, Caucasian goddess I feel offended

  • Parisjok

    well, Jenny how do you feel about 99.9% of tv shows having an ALL WHITE cast now as well as in the past?

  • CopperCutie

    She looks stunning!

  • Shenanigans

    You can always tune in to the other 99% shows that are all white. I’m sure you also complain when you can’t spot a single show that isn’t cast with only caucasians.

  • jane

    as soon as the cast(s) from popular shows start thinking they’re all that the show tanks in the ratings. she should shut up, stop making too many appearances, and relax and enjoy her success before it’s gone again
