SAAPHYRI_WINDSORStill no Charm School Finale Recap, but TxShawty found Essence Magazine's interview with the winner of Charm School Saaphyri Windsor.
Here's an extract from the Kenya Byrd interview... You once said that winning $50,000 was like winning $1 million. How has it changed your life?

SAAPHYRI: I got the money but I realize that money doesn''t make a person; you have to make the person. I am putting a down payment on a condo and it definitely feels good to have your own. And just to clear the air, I don't live in a box. For some reason people thought I did, but I lived with roommates. The truth of the matter is that as long as you don't have your own it's like you're homeless because any second you could be out on the streets. Yes, it's nice that I can pay my bills and mortgage, but I still can't afford to say, "I'm never going to work again." What the money has offered me is a platform to stand strong on.

    Damn, Saaph looks older with the worish make-up. Message to black women: You don't need that much make-up. She looks like Pumpkin did that shit.

    LOL She suckered all those dumb bitches at Charm School in. She wasn't homeless. She was living in a bachelorette pad buying $800 hair and ugg boots. And those stupid bitches fell for it.

    I don't think Saaphyri should have won because she said she spent her rent money to buy the ugg boots. And anyone who would rather buy those ugly boots then to keep a roof over there head is foolish. I feel Leliene should have one at least it would have gone to help supporting her kids.
