      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
      The shame is that the ballet world is so rigid, at the castings it’s always skinny or nothing regardless of how talented the dancer in question is…

    She looks great. Kudos on the boob implants, they keep her muscular frame feminine.

    • blackswans

      It does not look like she had boob implants, but she is definately a “butterface” sorry. Misty is not the only woman of color making a mark on the ballet world. Check out Aeesha Ash and Linda Celsete Sims!!!! Ridiculous talent.

  • blackking7

    Black women r naturally born this way and even better they don’t exploit their beautiful bodies like white girls.

  • june

    Insecure Much? Black men appreciate all women especially our own…I should know.

  • Boomboomroom

    Notice it takes a beautiful Black woman for all the jealous trolls to come running out? LOL @ the insecurity.

  • AlexWekJunkie

    is she bi-racial? she doesn’t look “black,” “african-american.” And Prince don’t do 100 percent black girls, which is a shame, they have to look like what the press dubbs “exotic” (e.g., Vanity, Appolonia, etc).

    • Boomboomroom

      What does African American look like? In you attempts to sound intelligent YOU JUST “came off” more ignorant. READY A BOOK BYTCH!!

    • Cleva

      Prince was reported dating and engaged to Nona Gaye, dated Susan from V6, and some rumors said he had a deep crush on Tamar. I’ve had convos with an ex of his and she said prince likes WOMEN…and likes sistas. We only see his “public” chicks.

  • Mabel

    Such an intelligent and articulate young woman. She exuded grace and humility during the interview. I can only wish the best for her, and hope all her personal and professional dreams come true.

  • Boomboomroom

    Ummm your point being? You need to get your “troll game” together bruh. Because you are just “rambling” and not making any sense. I didn’t say anything about Black women NOT exploiting there bodies. But if you wanna talk about that White women exploit there bodies WAYYYYYYYYY more than Black women DO! AND THAT IS A FACT!!

    BTW stop pumping up FAT WHITE WOMENS heads like Katie.

  • WTF

    Impressive woman. Very beautiful and talented. More stories like this.

  • jmagic

    All men love you huh?Guess thats why black women have the lowest rate of marriage when it comes to women in general,oh but your winning in one thing though the amount of illegitimate kids being born yearly,so cuodos to your vitory

  • Allie

  • jmagic

  • Black women got stalkers now!

    Lol Black men marry black wommen 80% while bw marry bm 90% the only men tryin to wife up a white hoe is asians and east indians REALTALK LOL and white women alone have the highest divorce rate.

  • Boomboomroom

    LOL!! The day I start seeing White women like Heidi Klum marrying broke, bitter Black men like yourself. Then, we will be worried. Umm? 65% of Black men are UNMARRIED!! That is one of the highest unmarried rates. Check your stats. Again, other races of women are NOT lined up to marry Black men either. Again in your whack attempts to troll and Bash Black women you can’t even do research. And let me guess monkey. You must be typing this from a prison computer eh?

    • Boomboomroom

      LOL!! Cause we all know that Seal & Heidi Klum’s marriage IS THE NORM!! LOLOLOLOLOL!! ROFL!!!
      Silly, bitter, angry, delusional Black man. Always unemployed never the employee. LOL!!

  • jfizzle

    I don’t care what no one says, that dude Prince is a Pimp. All of the women that this dude has messed with you have never heard one of them bad mouth him or give you any details on their relationship. Misty was no different, she side stepped the question. Ain’t Prince like twice her age plus 10, like I said pimp.

    • severine

      So true!!! Those women are very loyal to him. He chooses his women well, I must say.
      Prince is the man!

  • Boomboomroom

    Black men marry Black women at 88%. Black men compared to other races of men(White & Latino) have some of the LOWEST IR dating/marriage rates.

    @Jmagic Only an silly ABM with delusions of grandeur would use a Hollywood marriage as a catalyst for what is really going in “real” life.
