#CelebrityCrush- Claudette Ortiz!

(Singing) You could say she’s Plain Jane, but it’s not the same! Claudette Ortiz is BAD! We all fell in love with her back in 2001 when she was a member of the R&B trio, “City High,” and the love has never stopped. Claudette is truly beautiful inside and out. With the soul of a survivor and the ability to bounce back like none other, she continues to do what she must to shine. Ms. Ortiz was a hit on TV One’s R&B Divas LA, where she brought some much needed  youth and early 2000s nostalgia! She may no longer be apart of the reality show, but she is thankfully still doing music with a hot single, Reciprocation!

Claudette’s life has been anything but easy; revealing a past of domestic violence, heartache, and rape. However, she has fought her way out of the thick of drama. Now she is revamping her career with some acting, courtesy of Tyler Perry! Recently she appeared in his new stage play, Madea On The Run, and now has a recurring role as “Claudia” on OWN’s If Loving You Is Wrong. You must see her as Claudia on this show in her form fitting, pink and black race-striped dress–THE GIRL HAS BODY! Claudette is “5’5″ with brown eyes, [with a] smile like the sunshine” and this week’s Celebrity Crush!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
