    It sucks she’s going make money off of lying. It’ll be interesting to see what she has to say tho. I’m betting she’ll dance around the questions and remain defiant. She has a few screws loose I think.

    • LADY_in_MD says:

      I agree she’s probably loving all this attention which is sick!

    • Joey says:

      It’s not really any different than what she’s been doing for the past decade. However good her intentions may have been, she has been lying and making money because of it for the past 10 years.

  2. Carm says:

    This is probably just what she wanted.

  3. Et al says:

    I hope Matt asks her about Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

  4. Dennis says:

    Nothing wrong about wanting to be another race and embracing that culture as your own…just don’t lie about it!!

    • Bob Backus says:

      Actually there is something dreadfully wrong with doing that. Just ask the strident African Americans who ruthlessly attack blacks that don’t act like blacks. They’re Uncle Toms (of course not really understanding who Uncle Tom was), House N…., etc. But, I guess it’s ok for a non-black to pretend to be black.

  5. Tahina says:

    I don’t want to offend anyone, but she does look biracial to me, she could pass as Stephen Curry’s sister even.

  6. Angus says:

    Bold faced liar is going to make a mint off of bold faced lies. Only in America. She should be thrown out with yesterdays trash.

  7. Bartimeus says:

    She looks like she is half black, her hair type is officially named “afro-textured hair” – look it up – which means she’s either partially African or Asian.

    • Joey says:

      Being overly tanned and getting a weave doesn’t make you black.

    • John NYC says:

      Blonde, freckled and blue eyed as a teenager?

      That’s a skin dye and hair job. The photos side-by-side are interesting to say the least.

      Lesson from all this? Don’t claim another man as your Father while your actual parents are still alive and have photos….

  8. John NYC says:

    My total favorite out of all this? The report of her SUEING Howard University for discrimination on the basis she, as a white student, was not chosen for some sort of art presentation in favor of a black student’s work.

  9. arial2 says:

    Technically, she didn’t lie. Everyone on this planet descends from groups that came out of Africa thousands of years ago.

    • Anna says:

      She did lie. She hired a black man to pretend to be her father while her white parents were sitting at home across town.

  10. Trista says:

    The fascination with this liar is beyond me. What I want to know is did she check the African American box on her tax returns? Did she apply for any loans as an African American? Basically, did she also commit fraud?

    • John NYC says:

      At least once perhaps. Yes she reportedly checked that box in her application for a city position.

    • Joey says:

      She also claims to have received hate mail while the NAACP’s chapter president while evidence points to her having sent the hate mail to herself. While in another position, she also claims to have been the only witness to swastikas and other “white power” symbols appearing in her place of work while cameras focused on those areas were mysteriously turned off.

  11. gina says:

    What this person has done is insulting not only to black women but also to every other women on the planet regardless of race. She has done nothing to improve race relations in fact, she has probably done harm in some instances. The TV station should donate the money for her fee to a number of Women’s charities.
