Your makeup looks good, that lip stick color is very nice. He has great complexion, what's he using muy sueva..

Keep on doing you Miss Sam, You, Niña Girl and Chona E - Joanna Estrada. Don’t worry about the naysayer’s. I remember how much the first time I listened to y’all. You took me back to the people I hung out with. My friends their sisters were all hood-rats. You guys would all do your skits. But then when it got down to the nuts and bolts of life. You and Nina would always give good solid positive advice.

To hair or not to hair? Yours is looking good. Nice picture you two. ❤️🙏🏼

Loving ur style beautiful ma'

Here is how I catch hoodratz vm.tiktok.com/ZTdGHuxmP/?k=1

Chola or Hoodrat it's still...

Samantha Najera man that’s a tough convo but glad you doing it. I personally think part of the conflict many Hispanics have is some male Hispanics with tattoos or who are viewed as bad boys I guess lol (thug) have gotten tons of hate from other hispanic males who aren’t thuggish I guess 🤷🏼‍♂️. All this stems from a girl who left them oe dissed that Hispanic male for a thuggish type guy. Also same goes Vice versa many hispanic females who aren’t chola really lol, have had their male significant other leave them or diss them (cheat) for a chola hispanic female. So long story short some cholas and thug hispanic vatos feel they get hated on BAD by other Hispanics cause of stuff ^ like that and in many cases they RIGHT. I’ve known many dudes for sure get heated saying “man she left me for a guy who has no education or good paying job) etc. Also observed some hispanic females get heated saying “I can’t believe he left me for that ghetto chola). I understand all sides of the discussion and argument though, and no matter what haters gonna hate. Glad you having a VERY tough discussion.

You do you, girl!

In honor of the Saturday Night Live chola skit that aired last night, we'd thought we'd share how we do it down here in San Anto! This was filmed in 2018 (our very first sketch comedy video!) and was the birth of the "Lil' Frijolita" and "Lil Chismosa" characters played by Nina Duran and Samantha Najera . We didn't plan on it going anywhere, we just thought it would be fun to re-create and celebrate the beautiful Brown culture we grew up with 🤎 Now two Latinas Selena Gomez and Melissa Villaseñor are on Nationally syndicated TV doing the same! We must be doing something right. We're proud of what we've done and we know we'll be there soon too✊🏽💅🏼🎥🤩. Looking forward to Season 3 coming this Fall!!! #hoodratthings #hoodrats #sketchcomedy #latinosinhollywood #latinasincomedy #cultura #comedy ... See MoreSee Less
