HH: You’re known for your hilarious work on Wild ‘N Out. What has that experience been like for you?
VENA: The Wild ‘N Out experience is great, and each season brings forth new things I am constantly learning. I am learning from someone as great as Nick Cannon. I love my job, and I feel so blessed this is my sixth season. I actually tried out in Season 9 and unfortunately didn’t make it. And Season 11, they called me back as a cast member. This experience is unforgettable, and I feel so blessed, it has opened so many doors for me.
HH: Congrats by the way on your recent Citi Trends deal! How did the development of that come about?
VENA: I started off as brand ambassador for the company for almost a year and loved doing s,o because it was a brand I grew up being very familiar with. Eventually, I had the opportunity to pitch my products and out of that the Pretty Vee electronic and Beauty collection was created. It’s now in over 570 stores in 33 States. And also shopprettyvee.com.
HH: What are your top five beauty products?
VENA: (Anything by) Pretty Vee Beauty, MAC, L’Oréal, Mario Badescu Facial Spray and Black Radiance.
