Lovely lady Cool Darlene!! (LL Cool D!!)

I love the book and it was great to understand that Darlene was raised by these two good men and quite frankly I think she came out a 110 percent good strong woman. I see a lot of her on C Hulcombs 5150 Show and I love it. To see how she can keep up with the fellas is a small bit of proof of the woman she has grown to be and I'm sure what we see in the public is a very small picture of who Miss OG Darlene Ortiz really is. They say a real good love only comes around once in life time which is a statement I don't necessarily believe. I really hope she finds real love again.Much love to her and her family, much respect and great book Darlene. You are definitely an accurate definition of being down. True love from your fan Shawn, Peace Love and Happiness to you D.
