Valona is a native of Gerritsen Beach. Her friends are extremely important to her and she’s very overprotective of them. Usually the last to back down in a conflict, she has quite the temper. When she goes out with Joey Lynn and the girls, she lets loose and parties hard. Valona has grown up in an Albanian/Muslim family and has been hiding certain things about her lifestyle from her mother. However, at this stage in her life, she feels she wants to be upfront and honest in order to have a closer relationship with her.
Kelly, also known as “Kelz” and “Barbie” (because of her love for fashion) is 100% a Brooklyn girl, born and raised. Kelly lives at home with her mother and sister. She is adopted and her mother is half African American, half Irish. She butts heads with her mother but at the end of the day they love each and have the best times together. She is close to her sister who also parties with Kelly’s friends. Kelly knows all the girls in her crew through Angelina, whom she considers family. She is fun, crazy and loves to party. She likes everyone to get along but will be the first to step in to defend her friends and stick up for the group! She is single and enjoying dating right now. Kelly studied liberal arts at Kingsborough and BMCC before taking time off to pursue her ‘fashionista’ dreams. She currently works as a stylist but has big plans to work in fashion PR one day.
