LaToya Ali is only in her first season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta — but it appears that she’s already gone under the knife. Many fans believe that LaToya was a gorgeous addition to the Bravo reality show — at least up until a few weeks ago.
LaToya Ali is showing off her nipped and tucked face in recent images of the reality star’s new look.
The Bravo newbie revealed her face — which was plumped up and swollen — seemingly confirming that she had undergone some dramatic surgical procedures.
LaToya began her career as a YouTube personality and author, and was best known for her video blog channel, “LaToya’s Life.” She was the official Vibe TV American Music Awards host in 2012, and participated in the Buffer Festival in 2015 and 2017. Her YouTube channel has raked in 125 million views and boasts over one million subscribers. Her debut book project, an autobiography titled “LaToya’s Life: Uncut Mishaps of a YouTube Star”, hit bookstore shelves on November 8, 2016.
As reported earlier this month — LaToya Ali was hit by fan backlash after anti-black comments she made on her YouTube channel resurfaced.
LaToya Ali was seen on video speaking negatively about a black woman and her Afrocentric facial features.
“This girl is super ghetto. She has huge Donkey Kong lips. Y’all close your eyes, just imagine a face with two pillowcases as lips,” she said in the shocking video.
Adding, “she wore single braids, and every time she would swing her hair her braid will fall out. You see that braid that’s just lingering around your neighborhood? Yeah, it’s probably hers.”
Viewers took to Twitter to voice their disappointment at the 33-year old YouTube star turned reality personality.
“She uses her features to describe what makes her ghetto? White supremacist in the light-skinned Black face,” a person tweeted.
Another said, “she’s very anti-black. She was against black hair for a while till her hair started falling out. That’s when she finally decided to give the leave outs alone. You can tell she was one of those lighter girls that used to bully black girls at school.”
LaToya Ali joined The Real Housewives of Atlanta in the show’s 13th season alongside Drew Sidora, following NeNe Leakes’ exit.
LaToya, who claims to be separated from her husband Adam Ali, was also accused of faking her divorce for a storyline and attention.
“I’m not going to sugar coat things and say this has been easy. Divorce is incredibly difficult, but the silver lining is that the journey to this is decision has made me stronger and has helped me blossom into the woman I am today,” LaToya Ali said of her divorce last December.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sundays at 8 pm, ET, on Bravo.
