Rapper Cardi B cleaned up at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards in Miami, Florida over the weekend. The 24-year-old one-hit-wonder took home a plethora of awards, including Single of the Year for her #1 hit “Bodak Yellow” and Best New Hip Hop Artist of the Year.

Cardi is pictured leaving the BET Hip Hop Awards after-party at a nightclub in Miami at 6 a.m with 2 cell phones in her hand. Most rappers carry multiple cell phones to separate business calls from booty calls.

Cardi B partied with her boyfriend, rapper Offset, wearing B&W shirt, from the rap group Migos, who surprised her with a beautiful bouquet of roses as they left the club. Other party guests included Migos bandmates Quavo and Takeoff, as well as Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka and his beautiful wife Tammy Rivera, pictured below.

Waka’s mom, Debra Antney, was part of the protest outside Houston’s restaurant in Buckhead, an exclusive neighborhood in Atlanta. Debra and rap mogul T.I. Harris called themselves protesting a longstanding restaurant policy that prohibits seating a party larger than 7 people.

T.I.’s long-suffering wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris also participated in the protest. She claims the restaurant made her change her revealing top for something more respectable.

The Buckhead location, across from Lenox Mall, was forced to shut down on Sunday, thereby depriving their staff — including black employees — of wages for that day.

Every black person I spoke to who has dined at Houston’s say they have never experienced racism or discrimination at the restaurant. Your auntie has also dined at Houston’s, and I have never experienced discrimination.

Debra and T.I. should pick their battles more wisely. As a wise person once said: “Is this the hill you want to die on?”

    Tammy should’ve got that dress one size bigger.

    How is she a one hit wonder? Can she have a chance to develop more than one hit? Dang ppl r so harsh at least she has a hit where’s yours at ????

    Just because it hasn’t happened directly to you, or those you know , doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened! If it’s happened to just one black person, guess what? It affects us all or should! Good for them …stand for something, or fall for anything!

    basically!

  • You Could Never

    Deb and TI need to sit their asses down. It is long known that some, actually a lot of rest. do NOT like to seat large parties. I had trouble once few years ago trying to find a spot that WOULD seat us all on my oldest daughter birthday and also was graduation and Mothers Day weekend.

  • the guest

    Restaurants usually offer to accommodate by splitting a large party into 2 or 3 tables near each other with separate checks.

    I think the restaurant might be creating this policy because its against the law to say they don’t want to accommodate large rapper and entourage parties.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Does Quavo know what he is representing wearing that shirt?

  • You Could Never

    what day of the week were these taken? if not on Friday, Sat., Sunday then there is really not anything to see here. Bc any spot will tell you those their busiest times. And what Sandra said and what their policy is…it says larger than 7. Count the number of folks in BOTH pics. Folks find something to be mad about constantly.

  • stav

    Now I must say I agree with this, no shoes, no shirt, exposed breast , no service!

  • stav

    That’s what Sandra said, her word or blog isn’t bond! There were others with a party of 7, all blacks that would not be seated, and asked to separate the parties into a table of 3 , and one of 4 , and they still were denied.

  • hottlanta

    Love it when folks bring receipts. I see they got that 1 honorary black friend.

  • the guest

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I hope she has at least two million outright stashed offshore for a rainy day and old age.

  • the guest

    Word.

  • hottlanta

    I had to listen to Cardi B song when my lights were out on the radio and the song is TERRIBLE. I almost pulled my eyeballs out. I love a good beat and a good song. I couldn’t make it, All I could make out was bluddy shues.

  • You Could Never

    Okay then that is discrim. However, if those folks didnt say shit why are TI and Mama Deb out there? were they out there? the folks who felt slighted? Bc I bet MONEY if HIS WIFE wasnt offended, he could have cared less about wtf Houston’s of ATL any location of Houston’s did.

    And not just Sandra’s word. Houston’s said that is their policy. I looked it up before commenting. Furthermore, in that example that I posted which Im SURE was written by WHITE folks bc God KNOWS nobody complains like THEM…that rest. said hell no to splitting up too.

    ” At one point she even offered to split her party into two tables of six, but the restaurant didn’t want to do that.”

  • stav

    I saw the shirt , it looks like trees blowing to me, what am I missing?

  • hottlanta

    Red Lobster seats everybody. They gonna make that money. Piccadilly gives you a whole back room if you need it.

  • SolEK Ennis-Klyczek

    PDTM, he might know. He looks a lil sciency. ?

  • stav

    Apparently they are out there because they are well known, and have a platform where they will be heard louder than those not well known.

  • You Could Never

    They need to go to those spots then. Which is what we did. We ended up at Bahama Breeze which the parent company also owns…Red Lobster. Houston’s and COUNTLESS others have said NO. And they said what they said. Folks who never have done service dont understand WHY. Its a headache. Period. And even seating them sep. Its a pain in the ass. XYZ over at the main table chatting and miss the drink orders. Then get back to their table and are MAD. Wanna complain. No. Take yall asses to a Darden Group Rest. or the Picadilly and getcho ass a Dilly Daily Special. Its not always racial.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I had to look up the lyrics…

  • You Could Never

    Someone was mad they got told no. Tiny was mad and told to cover up. Houston’s probably is racist. But hell if Tiny wouldnt have been told to cover up would this be a thing? And I actually LOVE her. But lets be real every place in the Yelp reviews that is noted as being unsavory far as service, race or anything does not get boycotts. They just dont Stav. Lets call a thing a thing.

  • Karen Brady

    Houston’s is my fave restaurant and everyone knows they can seat probably 6 ppl max at a booth so FOH. Go to cheesecake or benihanas or get a room at Pappadeaux maan.

  • stav

    That’s up to those that have been discriminated against personally to call these racist establishments out. Apparently blasting these places on social media and bringing them negative attention is effective, again stand for something or fall for anything!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The restaurant is in one of the most expensive areas of Atlanta. The restaurant policy is to strongly encourage reservations for walk-in groups larger than 6. The group of 7 in the photo that the protesters were yapping about probably made a reservation.

    Deb Antney initially stated she also made a reservation.

  • KA

    I’ve dined at Houston’s. I enjoyed it. I am tired of seeing all these reality stars’ tiddays.

  • NicoleZee

    What kind of food do they serve??? I rarely go to restaurants due to food allergies and most don’t have allergen menus, only a few with actual good food that doesn’t taste like shit! The last place I ate out at was Dave & Buster’s, the food is good and they have an allergen menu, plus I like the service and love the games :)!

  • KA

    If you look up the lyrics, it’s not a bad song LOL!

  • NicoleZee

    Most rappers suck period. I can’t think of any of them that make the least bit of sense. They all need language and dialect courses. How can a music label even allow them to put out such trash and not encourage them to better themselves in the first place??? No matter where you live or where you are from, you need to speak clearly and coherently when communicating. I don’t get it.

  • KA

    Because we all know that our cousins won’t even tip 10%, let alone 20%. They will leave $5 on a $200 bill and run the server ragged. People forget that most servers make less than minimum wage and are actually living off tips.

    Maybe if they split the parties, they will get $10…

  • Quitedeliteful

    True….

  • KA

    I was thinking the same thing!

  • NicoleZee

    I can’t understand her when she raps or talks. The song is trash an so is she. She needs some etiquette classes, media training, and language and dialect courses. How anyone can not want to improve themselves is beyond me. Everyone, regardless of race or ethnicity should be taught etiquette at home or take some classes on it. It’s sad that parents no longer teach their kids much anymore, very sad and embarrassing. However, we live in a dumb era where being street and acting like you don’t have a brain is acceptable behavior and encouraged. Men actually love women like her. I don’t get it, but men don’t want educated and naturally beautiful women anymore with real body parts, they prefer street trash. Weird world.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    Yes those Dominicans in NYC are very different

  • Coy little wink

    I’m puzzled as to people saying they don’t understand Cardi…I understand her just fine and people at her shows rap the entire lyrics along with her….

    Meanwhile migos…future…young thug…I don’t understand half the stuff they say…but I still enjoy the beats they rhyme to

  • NicoleZee

    She needs to just work out and stop trying to nip and tuck everything. Her mother is obese, so obesity may run in fer family. If you look at her physique, especially her legs, you can see that she struggles with her weight. Getting plastic surgery is dumb when you don’t want to exercise and maintain better eating habits. I do everything the hard way. I don’t want to be cut on unless I need to be. Nothing wrong with a little jogging and eating bad food in moderation. I don’t need to look like a supermodel, but I do want to prevent being obese so I can live a long time and be as healthy as I can.

  • stav

    I personally make it a point to ALWAYS tip 20%, even 10% if the service was lacking, however ignorance comes in ALL shades not just ” our cousins” , but ” all cousins”. I don’t try to keep up with all the ignorance in the world, I just focus on what I can do better. Discrimination cannot be tolerated for any reason!

  • hottlanta

    I tip well but I ain’t gotta tip for sorry service. I ain’t trying to be cruel but if you need more money get a better job. It’s the American way, Then we have to read the receipt because a lot of time the tip is added in the bill and plus they got a tip outta you.

  • stav

    True that! The tip is a lot of times added in, also provide quality service when your livelihood depends on your disposition!

  • hottlanta

    I don’t have a problem with looking up the lyrics it is hearing the lyrics that is the problem. She cloned her look off Nikki.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Much of this current Hip Hop is simply a tool to dumb down black folks. Apart from barely being coherent, is there some quota for being able to say Nig@#$ or Bit@# multiple times on EVERY line of each track?????

    As someone who grew up on 80s Rap/Hip Hop, this stuff being put out today is an outright joke.

  • jussaying

    Houston’s is part of a larger chain by Hillstone restaurants. They serve American cuisine. I love their chicken salad. Speaking of, I went to the hillstone restaurants site and it definitely states they can’t serve more than six on the site… smh.

  • KA

    I over tip, but I have been a part of parties with large bills who felt that $5 was an appropriate tip, so I’m speaking from experience. And I didn’t specify race – but do I think you discriminate because you assumed I was talking about black people? Nope.

    I just don’t believe that if you disagree with someone’s written policy, that it’s discrimination because black people are involved. Plenty of restaurants have written policies regarding large parties and appropriate attire. Celebrities don’t like being told no. The rules do apply to them too, even though their behavior indicates otherwise.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Hearing the lyrics makes my ears hurt. I have to say I’m getting used to hearing this song though. I actually caught myself bouncing to the beat the other day… All these ‘starlets’ look alike. No originality…

  • stav

    So who did you mean by our cousins? You can think what you want, you don’t know or live my facts…..I Do!

  • KA

    I didn’t say anything about you, so I don’t know why you’re taking it personal. And I definitely said nothing about your “facts” – I don’t even know what that means.

    And by our cousins I meant our cousins…you know how people say “I would never do that but someone I know would.” My family is very mixed, so I literally was not thinking in terms of race.

  • KA

    Especially for large parties, the gratuity is always added in. And I will give a minimum tip when service isn’t great, realizing that if they are waiting tables, it’s probably their best option. I just don’t see that as a job someone wants to do. People are nasty.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Stripper life !

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Why would they protest that…if your top is revealing, you can’t dine there…,if your party is larger than 6 you have to split up, plain and simple!

  • Harley

    Cardi B looks so tacky! These women need stylists! Where in Ade Samuel when you need her ?

    Tammy? What is going on with that shape. That tummy tuck and those fillers have you looking like a dinosaur. Just way to thick and chubby looking to have that waist. Its comical at this point. And the clothes! ALWAYS TOO TIGHT! I wish this girl would find some class!

    Yep. You know something’s wrong when LL Cool J has only an Icon award (2011) but Cardi B ‘cleaned up’ at BET…and I’m not just picking on her. She happens to be the subject at hand today.

  • KA

    Like I stated, where I’m from and with whom I roll – we say “your cousins” when we reference something that we want to imply others do, but not ourselves. Maybe me and my group just have some off the hook cousins….we don’t be talking about black folk, just off the hook folk.

    When I talk about 45 to my friends, I say “that’s your uncle,” as in the bad uncle that everyone has in their family that everyone is ashamed to admit they are related to.

  • stav

    Yet they are now saying they were not referring to blacks, but that was certainly the implication to me as well. The lame explanation was just that….Lame, and made no sense.

    We tip but we always looking for the hookup. I remember I went to Denny’s and it was a group of people at the register going back and forth over some dayum coupons holding everything up. We were lit when they left. You at Denny’s ain’t nothing over $10.00. Really people.

  • Solstice

    Not Phyllis (I love her ??) It was Vesta ??

  • Coffee1st

    Even if they didn’t!! Lol. What was “The Show” about? Dang if I know, but the song was amazing! The thing about today’s rap is that, like a commenter said before, is specifically made to dumb down the listeners ( our children). Sometimes I throw in Rakim, BDP, TCQ, Run DMC, X Clan and MAKE my kids listen to it.

  • Coffee1st

    Weeeellllll…. It’s been a while. But when I was a waitress, black folks WERE the worst tippers, especially black church folks. It’s the truth man… Not unless things have changed.

    OMG tell me about it they hit those diners up hard Dennys, IHOP etc. Try to get free birthday food (they adults) use coupons and all.

    They would not let them split up either. They told them not they could not split up into a table of 3 or 4.

  • Coffee1st

    I believe you. That was just my experience. Old folk of any color, black folk and black church folk (who were the worst..50-11 of em and not one red dime left)….I hated to see them coming. But I will say, I gave everyone good service no matter what.

  • NicoleZee

    CO-SIGN! Music from the 70s and 80s meant something. Music back then was life changing. I have never been a huge rap fan, most of it is trash and rappers sound like they speak everything but English. I’m more into R&B, pop, lite rock, some country. We have good artists today but the urban and rap music needs to go, it’s too shitty. I can tolerate K. Michelle and Tamar and Jazmine Sullivan, they’re in the urban contemporary R&B category, but others like them suck. If you can’t cross over into the pop category, your career will more than likely suck anyway.

  • hottlanta

    Yep I got mad at them church folks when Piccadilly had a all chicken wings you can eat and they ran out on a Sunday We were hot. They haven’t had that special any more since

  • Harley

    Yes when you always give good service it sucks to see people have such a lack of respect and not tip or tip such small amounts. We had one lady ordering drinks and asking for extra patron. Each drink came out to about $17 and then she wanted to tip the waitress $2 after about 5 drinks and food. I politely told her do not come back. We then started adding tips to ALL checks!!

    If the service is good, I break my neck to tip WELL. Someone up top said something like if you want more money get a better job. Sounds good but you’re at where you’re at until you can do better. I ve been in their shoes. You can’t assume someone doesn’t want better because they aren’t doing better

  • Sleepy One

    They were told they could not split up their party, they were given no valid reason on why they couldn’t be seated, also there were pictures taken of other 7 plus parties dining happily.

  • speakinmymind

    They didn’t want their ghetto, uncouth, demanding extra ketchup/mayo/etc. asses in there fucking up the ambiance and dining experience for all the other customers…and i don’t blame them. Folks (Black, White, etc.) are tired of this ghetto foolishness. Keep that shit on reality tv or in the clubs.

  • speakinmymind

    Houston’s does not discriminate plain and simple. However if you are not dressed appropriately and/or are not in compliance with THEIR dining policies, they reserve the right to refuse service.

    she smart Spanish people spend money too… that what I thought Joseline would do capitalize of the Spanish market becuae I think she would’ve been bigger.

    maybe that’s her preference because he may treat her like a queen compared getting with a real ninja who is worth million (per your words) who may treat her like trash because he fell he can and he may feel she is beneath him…

  • Pebbles

    I don’t care to much about her music,but I respect her work efforts and honesty which is refreshing, give her time I’m sure all that will come ( eitquette classes, media training etc) she has other music,but bodak yellow is the most popular at the momment. It could be just her stage persona and her offstage persona is totally different.

  • Noirluv45

    Roland Martin said the same thing.

  • Noirluv45

    Girl, this post had me hollering! Lawd!

  • Noirluv45

    Here, here to everything you said. Me and my family tip well too, but if the service such, they will not get one cent and we’ll tell them why.

  • Noirluv45

    I feel for them because they don’t make any money, but I will not tip if they are assholes. I will tell them why. They need to change their attitude because they aren’t getting something for nothing (at least with me). If they want the tip, they better act right. I know it’s hard dealing with customers. Been there, don’t that and will never do it again because I don’t have the temperament. People really are nasty.

  • Noirluv45

    I’ve heard that before; however, me and my family and Black and we tip very well IF the service is right.

  • NicoleZee

    I just appreciate and admire REAL artists who have actual talent and who work hard to get where they are. Give me Tamar, Bey, Adele, or Rihanna……..but Cardi, never no. I can’t. But if this is the road she wants to take, her business. I’m not willing to embarrass myself and my family by pretending to be talented. There are other lanes to take where you can do something you are really good at, not make a fool of yourself when you have no talent. These labels and producers are going to do nothing but exploit her and others like her. It’s not cute, it’s sad. She needs help and mentoring and maybe a good producer could help improve her music.

    Tamar’s new album is FIRE! I love it, she was right, it is her best work. I hate that she doesn’t want to make anymore albums right now. She is really talented like her sister Toni, beautiful voice. She is too extra for some, but I just ignore her antic and focus on her music. I hope she tours again by herself next year, I’m not with this Z-list Xscape tour, ridiculous. She does just fine touring on her own. There is no way I would give up singing if I had Tamar’s voice. I think her husband can’t handle her success, so it strained their marriage. I’d rather have my voice and career if I were her, not some man that can go and find someone else. He’ not even a little bit of all that! Yuck!

    Aretha’s still here, but she claims this is her last time touring before she retires. She was supposed to be here in Atlanta this Friday, but she canceled. I saw her last time in 2014, blew me away. She still has her voice and she’s fun to watch on stage. Barbra Streisand is still ticking, I hope she tours soon, I’ve always wanted to see her in concert. Janet is currently on tour. Lots of the greats are still here, but some of them don’t perform anymore. Angela Bofill had to stop performing after having a stroke, she is one of my faves, beautiful voice.

  • NicoleZee

    She interviews the same. You won’t be able to understand anything she says. Check out her interview with The Breakfast Club a few weeks ago. I don’t get her. It’s like she wants people to think she’s dumb, kind of the way Jessica Simpson acts or used to act when she was married to Nick Lachey. Jessica said she acted dumb because that’s what people wanted. WTF??? So being smart, speaking correctly, and acting like you were raised by actual humans is a bad thing??? This is one strange planet we live on. Aliens probably behave better if they exist. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    People don’t like Beyoncé, I don’t know why, but she is actually gorgeous and has REAL talent, Cardi has neither. Just because someone does not like someone, it does not automatically mean they are hating. Why would anyone want to be like Cardi??? No diss to her, but a true lady or gentleman would see nothing appealing about her. I admire Bey and Princess Kate (love her!), but Cardi, no, never. We all have opinions and we like who we like, so if you like Cardi, cool. Everyone needs love and support from somewhere.

  • NicoleZee

    We have Tamar Braxton as far as new music goes. Her latest album is amazing. One minute you want to dance, the next minute you want to make love :)! Tamar annoys some, but her music speaks for itself. Beautiful voice. I hope she changes her mind and does another album in a few years. She has too much talent to not sing and perform.

  • Pebbles

    Cardi has other music that’s was out way before bodak yellow, the only difference between her previous music and bodak is this: bodak is gonna help go mainstream and that where the real coins are..cha ching!

    It’s the goal of most artist.. we can agree to disagree because everyone is entitled to their own person opinion regarding an artist..

  • Kimberly King

    I’m sure about everything. That’s why I never stay quiet darling. I wasn’t saying she should upgrade because of her song’s success. I was saying she should upgrade because I can see her look and style are changing. There are plenty of men who can speak correct English without nasty ass face tats out in the universe. She needs better standards. Sounds like you do too. =(

  • Kimberly King

    Exactly. I really can’t name a Migos song. Mumble rap is like a revolving door. Plus they stole Three 6 Mafia’s flow and deemed it the “Migos Flow” lol

  • ShWa

    Joseline sux as a performer period…unless she goes back to the pole…..

  • ShWa

    Yes she is thickums

  • ShWa

    Right, now I saw that, so I don’t get what was the reasoning for not serving these people?? Yes some did not have any issues, but what about the many that has?

  • ShWa

    Right

  • ShWa

    Exactly, I don’t like Niki Minaj but not hating on her, can’t knock the grind and the hustle, she is self centered and seems phony, I saw that clip where she chewed out that security guy for being in her photograph space, just classless…..

  • Anonymouse

    You know, Houston’s DOES NOT have to serve everyone.

    Black people should really choose their “battles” wisely. Oh, and get a life!

  • Reina1718

    Rite, english or spanish

  • Reina1718

    Yes she has no waist but chunky all over lol even in her neck…how that waist stay so tint???

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Got it! 😉 well yes that’s a reason to be up in arms. I wouldn’t protest though, I would just spread the word and not eat there again.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Got it ok, I thought I had all of the details 😉 thank you!

  • sunni_daze

    hehehe, my daddy used to say something similar. lol

  • sunni_daze

    Offset seems supportive of Cardi and that’s always a good thing.

  • Yoni7

    I LOVE that Spanish version. I’m trying to learn it and I don’t even know the English version well. LOL

  • Numba Pulla

    I want to hear cardi drop another hit song, an album that sells. I get the feeling they are backing her to get nicki out the way. We shall see.

  • tunjie

    Haha are you like the stamp of validation for music? Given they went platinum there seems to be a lot of folks who know their songs, a lot more than Cardi B and your silly self.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    They better leave Houston’s alone…it’s not the type of restaurant that would seat a large crowd, it’s cozy and quiet just the way most people like it.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Yes lawd…dem legs ?

  • Dahl

    I don’t know why they would protest the seating policy if if a restaurant. Some places don’t like seating large groups because it’s potentially disruptive to the vibe.

    And all I could think is a-reola when I saw Tammy ?

  • Tay Gee

    Did you say “long suffering wife”!!! lmaooo #dead

  • APeachLikeMe

    I was wondering the same thing…

  • Queen B

    I understand, however Cardi B is gonna have to stop bussing it open on stage, stop threatening fans, stop tellin fans she’s strapped and to meet her in NY to fight, stop wearing ensembles with her ass out, stop letting fans rub and motor boat her ass while on stage, take a few etiquette classes, improve her grammar, and learn how to properly put a sentence together without adding “rrrr” to every damn thing she says. If your “standards” is only based on someones “looks and wardrobe” then honey u don’t have you any ?? Seems like WE both need to do better.

  • InsecureNEVA

    You must be new here because Sandra uses that phrase to describe almost ALL married women, because according to her, ALL men cheat.

  • Tay Gee

    Lol, I didn’t realize that. All men don’t cheat, atleast I don’t think so.

  • SumthinSweeter

    lol, well that was a nice respectable “read”.

  • Solstice

    Ooh yes! I forgot about Three 6 Mafia ? Good point!

  • Queen B

    Lol i try ?

  • JENNYJONES1

    YOU FORGOT THEY WERE WHITE PARTIES……..JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    WHITE PARTIES……..JENNY JONES!!!!

    Imma have to agree with Auntie on this one….outta all the ish to protest, yall protesting seating arrangements and dressing appropriately….that’s what’s wrong with us now….can’t take Ninjas nowhere…I was in an restaurant (of my son’s choosing) the other day and there was a party of atleast 10, 8 kids and 2 ratchet baby mommas…they let them baebae’s cut up while they laughed. Everybody was looking horrified but no one was saying anything but ME. The manager offered to change MY seat, and a free dessert…talmbout since it is a family restaurant they can’t ask them to be quiet or they might be sued. WTF is this world coming to????

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Oh I didn’t know that tea!

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Thanks, I needed this.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I’m 40+ and I like TShirts…..dont tell nobody tho

  • Harley

    For real! People praise her for looking like this as well. She looks stuffed to me with a lipo suctioned waist!

  • Harley

    I may take a listen. I just really cannot stand her personality so it is a turn off. I think she is using Vince for his ends. When she first got with him she was not in the limelight so much. I mean he is not a looker and a mouth breather! I do wish real music would make its way back but with the music nowadays its looking pretty grim!

  • Harley

    haha

  • Kimberly King

    Actually I am. Anymore questions, peasant?

  • N/a None

    I wish autie would just die already she ugly and always hating , how do u sleep at night

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I sleep on my back and my side. How do you sleep?

  • NicoleZee

    Ugly men stay winning, broke or rich. Handsome men are few and far between or they’re gay it seems. Most women prefer a less attractive man, especially if he has some coins. Regardless of financial status, why would an attractive women settle for an unattractive man??? If she’s not ugly, why should she have to deal with that, especially these men with horrible hygiene who don’t care about themselves. Gross. Even if a guy has money, if he treats women like sh*t and looks like dog feces, move on to the next please!!!

  • gail jones

    Damn, you off the fawking chain.

  • gail jones

    That’s cuz she ain’t got one.

  • gail jones

    Cardi B looks like she still get her hair done by Shawquanda round da corna.

  • MRiGOThim

    I bet Cardi B “Hello Kitty” was funky than a bish in that outfit :

  • Youngblood

    nah cardi b don’t do it for me I seen her perform and I just kept laughing its funny and I might be the only one who thinks shes ugly but to me she is very funny looking and she raps really fast and that Spanish accent its just to funny.Black people say o no my stockings are ripped,Spanish people be like o no my stockings are broken.

  • Youngblood

    She said I get the money and go..lmao.

  • tunjie

    None at all ma’am, loser.
