From fashion and beauty tips, to precious moments with her husband and son or learning about her life journey, everybody wants to know what Dulce Candy is up to, and she’s not afraid to share. Dulce Candy posts unabashedly about her life across social media.

So she’s honest about her struggle with depression and suicide.

No secrets here. Dulce candy suffered from depression in high school, which led to several suicide attempts over a boy. For many years she battled against her insecurities and lack of confidence: she felt rejected, unwanted and unattractive. It took time, but she was able to defeat her inner demons. She shares this journey to let others know they are not alone.

Until she found her self-confidence in the unlikeliest of places, Carl’s Jr.

It’s very hard to believe, but this beautiful Latina was not always confident. For many years she “faked it.” At 16, it all changed. While working at her first job, as a cashier for Carl’s Jr., she started finding her own voice among her co-workers and realizing how powerful it was.

Part of her confidence comes from being proud about where she came from.

At the age of six, Dulce Candy immigrated from Mexico with her mother and three sisters in search of the American Dream.

She’s also a proud American and served for our country.

Dulce Candy had a drill sergeant that changed her life and whipped her “wild side” into shape. But not all was picture perfect… At 18, another sergeant made her life miserable because of her looks: he thought Dulce was looking for special treatment because she was “good-looking.” This took a big toll during the 15 months she was in his unit and, once again, messed with her confidence. Evntually, she was able to put that dark time behind her.

In the second unlikeliest of places, she found her calling.

Dulce Candy started vlogging while in the Army, right after she got back from Iraq. Being in uniform for 15 months, 24/7, inspired her to share with the world her fashion style. She even came up with two military-approved hairstyles in honor of Veteran’s Day.

Luckily, her parents gave her a great name, Dulce.

To be fierce like Beyoncé or Madonna you need to have a cool name and, as Jeb Bush said, Dulce Candy is a pretty cool name. Especially because it’s not fake and that’s actually what her parents named her.

As a vlogger, Dulce Candy shares everything with her audience, even her plastic surgeries.

Dulce has had two procedures done: breast enhancement and rhinoplasty… and guess what? She’s not afraid to talk about them. By discussing her experiences publicly, she hopes to help young girls that are going through the same things she did.

She also champions for people to see their inner beauty.

What actually makes her fierce is the way she cultivates her inner beauty by sharing messages filled with positivism and light. That’s how she has connected with so many young Latinas out there… As an “influencer,” as she calls herself.

And uses her voice to help others…

We all heard her question during the Fox News Republican debate challenging some negative GOP remarks about immigration. Dulce Candy has proven to be a fierce advocate and leader within expats that deserve the same respect and treatment as natural-born citizens… Mic drop.

Because her fans come first.

This lady is a famous vlogger, the CEO of Dulce Candy, Inc., has appeared as a “Beauty Smartie” in Seventeen Magazine and even wrote a book, “The Sweet Life.” Even with that hectic schedule, Dulce dedicates most of her time to answering questions from her followers and using Instagram to post pictures her fans really want to see.

So duh, celebs like Jessica Alba, JLo and Eva Mendez are fans.

When asked who is her Hollywood beauty crush, Dulce Candy new exactly what to answer: Jessica Alba. She loves the actress’s different trends and how she personalizes them. And this vlogger is the living true that dreams come true because Jessica Alba is one of her followers on Instagram.

Yup, she’s living the dream.

A Bruno Mars Catfish Seduced a Texas Woman Over Instagram and Scammed Her Out of $100k

A Bruno Mars Catfish Seduced a Texas Woman Over Instagram and Scammed Her Out of $100k

When certain fans say that they’d do anything for their favorite celebrity, we usually assume they mean, in a manner of speaking. But in the case of one Bruno Mars fan, that sentiment couldn’t be more serious.

Recently, a 63-year-old Texas woman was swindled out of $100,000 by a catfish pretending to be Bruno Mars.

Yeah, folks. We’re serious. According to Houston authorities, an unnamed Texas woman sent multiple checks to her online lover–whom she believed to be Grammy-award-winning, multi-platinum artist, Bruno Mars.

According to legal documents, the woman created an Instagram page in 2018 in order to find “companionship”. She was soon thereafter contacted by another Instagram user who claimed to be Bruno Mars. The fraudster sent the woman what she believed was ample evidence–multiple texts and photos that “proved” he was on tour.

According to the Texas woman, she believed that her and Mars had “fallen in love” and developed a “meaningful relationship.” According to court documents, the Mars impersonator even promised to quit his 24k tour in order to be with her.

Once Catfish Bruno gained the woman’s trust, he asked her for $100,000 for “tour expenses.” And the woman complied.

First, the Bruno Mars imposter asked her for a $10,000 check via mail. When the woman sent that, the Mars imposter asked for an additional $90,000. The woman wrote that check as well.

The checks were sent to different accounts owned by two men: a man named Chinwendu Azuonwu and his accomplice, Basil Amadi.

It seems that at some point, the woman became aware that she was being scammed and then contacted the authorities. It was then that the police traced the bank accounts back to Azuonwu and Amadi. The men were then arrested and charged with multiple accounts of money laundering.

After the news broke about the Bruno Mars catfish, naturally, the internet had a few questions.

We get that this woman was lonely and in want of companionship, but there’s a line between desperation and delusion.

Many people were caught between pity and disbelief.

We understand that older people aren’t as tech-savvy, but some common sense would’ve told you that a multimillionaire doesn’t need money from a random lady in Texas.

Some people were calling for a deep-dive documentary, MTV “Catfish” style.

Ok, we’d 100% watch this. We want to know how faux-Bruno wooed her, how she convinced herself a rich celebrity needed money, and how she finally became savvy to the scam.

Another question being asked: who has a cool $100k just sitting around?

And how did the scam artists know to target someone so rich?! We hope she the police were able to recover the money, otherwise this woman is going to have a tough retirement.

Missouri Woman Seen Holding Pelosi Sign Faces First Judge In Series Of Court Dates For Federal Charges

Update January 21, 2021

A Missouri woman named Emily Hernandez had a court hearing in St. Louis after her involvement in the Capitol riots. Hernandez, 21, is facing several federal charges after participating in the deadly Capitol riot.

Emily Hernandez is facing the music after storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

According to KSDK, Hernandez, who is from Sullivan, Missouri, has been released without bond after her first hearing in St. Louis. She has been ordered to stay in the Eastern District of Missouri until her next court date in Washington. Part of the terms of her release is that she is not allowed to travel to Washington other than for her court date.

During the hearing, she was recorded saying, “I’m sorry, I’m nervous.”

Hernandez is facing the following federal charges: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct which impedes the conduct of government business, steal, sell, convey or dispose of anything of value in the United States, disruptive conduct in the Capitol buildings, parading, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol buildings.

Original: After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.
