  1. Make this blue if you love TMZ
    👇(I’m gifting at 2000 subscribers)

  2. This is 😭. Praying for this family. She was such a young beautiful woman. She spoke the truth. It’s sad when it takes a death to realize how precious time is but it also gives us a wake up call to get it together and stop the pettiness

      I hate that sound. Monique has that too. Trina is doing it to compensate for something I think.

    • +huntingtonparkway Trina is def pulling a Quad with those fancy words they don’t use in everyday conversations. And I never noticed Mo’s, now u gonna MAKE me pay attention. Thanx! lol

  3. Have pity for the poor and wealthy alike for they both are on a hard path.

  4. This is why im moving to Vegas, life is too short, bury me in the strip club !!!

  5. Well said Trina !! ❤️
    Prayers and blessings to you & your family !! 🙏🏽

  6. Please!! She did not like that man! he said on numerous occasions all she care about is being in the spotlight and money I don’t believe she feels any pain
