I'd like to believe Shay Mitchell and I would be best friends. Aside from the fact that I'm not a big pizza person (and Shay is obsessed!), we have a lot in common. Our favorite esthetician is Shani Darden. We both create content for YouTube. She's really into skincare and makeup, as am I! And she's a total girls' girl, but can get down with the boys, too. (Plus, she's on one of the most scandalous and morbid shows on the tube, and I love anything creepy or horror-genre related.)
Shay joined us on this week's episode of #PrettyUnfiltered while promoting her new partnership with Bioré, and having interviewed her once before, I knew that she was going to be fun, but also genuine — something that's absolutely necessary for our series. After an outfit change on her part, we kicked off our shoes and got to talking.
Shay is half Filipina, and growing up, Shays she felt like she didn't fit in. She explained that she felt insecure in school, which most of us can relate to, but her insecurities were mostly due to the fact that she didn't look like most of her friends. She had darker skin and features; everyone else was white and blonde.
I was also totally blown away to hear that Shay used to dye her hair blonde and wear contacts in an effort to alter her image. She explains how she came to embrace herself, how she built up her confidence and told us an amazing quote her mother shared with her as a kid. Check out the interview with Shay and then let us know what empowers you by hashtagging #PrettyUnfiltered.

Nichole of Pussycat Dolls wasn't ashamed of being a Filipino. She've mentioned it in interviews and shout it out loud numerous times in X-Factor and she's very much proud of it. So as Mortal Kombat's Kung Lao, Paolo Montalban. I haven't watched an interview where Power Rangers; Aljin Abella, Alyssa Enrile, Michael Copon, Kevin Kleinberg and Rhoda Montemayor denied they have Filipino blood.

I have 4 half Filipino and German Irish children. 2 girls and 2 boys. They look very Filipino. They look funny going with their blonde hair and blue eyes father. They are beautiful, honor student, mellow and popular in school. Everywhere we go, people would come up to us and said what a nice and beautiful kids. They eat a lot but they are not fat. If they are ask about their nationality, they said they are Asian.
ho cares if you won't accept your Filipino side much better you didn't exposed that side because no one forcing you to do it sow ho cares if you won't embrace it doesn't matter just be a white ho is bunch of terrorist the one ho created Isis conqueror shit hole country the one ho is addicted to porn asf....we are Asians and we are Filipino and we are proud of it....
I’m German and only have German roots but I’ve got family in the philippines and they are soo insecure and not at all confident with their looks. I think the problem is that their beauty ideal are south korean and western women and they just want to be white like them. They even use tons of whitening lotion, avoid the beach and being in the sun for too long etc.. all the advertisements and commercials have white women with kinda Filipino face which is really rare in reality. Everyone is beautiful their own way!♥️
Wow.....it's hard to believe she was insecure about her looks.....I honestly think her mixture makes her look very unique and exotic......she is drop dead gorgeous! There's beauty in all cultures............It's nice to know she came to accept who she is..Being part filipina is a beautiful thing.......
Those who are saying she doesn't look Filipino are clueless and doesn't know anything about anthropology or maybe they need to get out more. She clearly exhibits mongoloid/asiatic features. Look at her eyes! She definitely looks asian. That's why she hated herself. She wanted to look white so badly. I also agree that this girl is just riding the POC bandwagon to her benefit. She is a self hating mess!
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
