    I remember a couple of years ago when some video vixen tried to shade Rosa by saying she didn’t own a pair of louboutin and had cheap shoes . Ya see where staying in your financial lane takes you?

  2. Note to self: You don’t need shoes.

    This interview is so powerful. I feel as though her words, her mind are some of the things I battle with so often yet I was unable to word them. More power, light and love to her!

  9. I’ve always liked her. Mainly because she did ballet and so did I so when I found out a video model was doing ballet, it changes my perspective on her. Great article. I think she’s a very smart woman. A clothing store on Melrose? Doing it big! Congrats to her!

    I’ve always liked her! I’ll have to check out her store. I feel good supporting women like her. She seems to have a good head on her shoulders and seems very sweet and sincere. A lot of these Hollywood women (some that are even featured here) know how to say the right things to appear to be a certain way but real recognize real. Rosa seems to be the truth.

    As a 22 year old starting out into the world, I am truly inspired. I especially love that part about her and her best friend thinking of having babies together, hahah!, turns out my best friend and i are not the only ones thinking of that. Great article!!

    1. Kiah McBride says:

      Yeah that one surprised me! But I like how she described intimacy and taking it out of a sexual connotation.

  25. Empress SC says:

    I like how she knows her worth is beyond her pu$$y because many women and men think that’s it to life. I agree with her in not buying shoes and handbags but investing.

    Yet she is wearing Louboutins, with Channel bag and kissing Nikki Baby from Love & Hip Hop…
    And her face looks VERY different from these pics!
    Maybe a lot has has happened since January when this article was written.

    I bet a lot of the models that made fun of her. Wish they was in her shoes. Cause video modeling don’t pay much these days anywhere. You have to be a in demand model or one of the top models to even get up to $1,000 or have to be a legendary model like LisaRaye or melyssa ford to demand $2,000-$3,000 a vid . she was smart to invest her money. Cause now she don’t have to model

  38. love life says:

    Video modeling these days don’t even pay much anymore. And I bet all the ones that made fun of her. Probably wish they would have invested they money too

    This article was insightful and I enjoyed reading it. It gave me an appreciation for what I do have and a realization once again that what I don’t have isn’t for me right now so stopping worrying about it. Plus it gave me a new perspective on Rosa Acosta.
