I made comments about how she's happy to slap "Chemicals" on her face in the way of her make up brand, and inject chemicals under her skin for her ink in her tattoos, and happily be paid to do this for others.

Yet the "Chemicals" in the whooping cough vaccine for her baby was unsafe and I called her a bad mum.

I was blocked within minutes and then she released some statement on her Instagram about being a "New" mum who makes mistakes.

Anyway, Shes a narcissistic small timer big time wannabe.

It wasn't me, but William Shatner was talking about his Tinnitus and someone suggested he "sleep with a fan". They meant an electric fan... He interpreted it a bit differently.
