This 11-Year-Old Latina Has Thousands Of Followers On TikTok And The Most Hilarious Sense Of Humor About Latinidad

Of the new class of TikTok talent that has cropped up since the app’s boom in popularity, no one is as relatable or as hilarious as adorable superstar-in-the-making Oliva Olivarez. Daughter of one of the reigning queens of TikTok, Ashlay Soto, Olivarez started out as a co-star in her mom’s viral short movies and quickly upgraded to scene-stealer. The videos were so popular because they riffed on the old “mother knows best” adage and playfully acted out the consequences of what would happen if alternate-reality Olivia rebelled against her Mom’s good (if strict) intentions.

Now, this little Latina upstart of Mexican descent has her own TikTok account that boasts over 1 million followers–not a shabby number for a girl who isn’t even 12-years-old yet! Needless to say, Olivia has an incredibly bright future ahead of her and we can’t wait to see more of it. In honor of Olivarez 12th birthday coming up on July 29th, we’ve compiled a list of Olivia’s top TikTok videos that illustrate precisely why she’s the reigning Princess of TikTok. 

Here is a round-up of Olivia Olivarez’s top Tik Toks!

1. Olivia Stealing the Spotlight

One of Soto/Olivarez family’s best videos because of how candid it is, Ashlay is getting really into her performance when Olivia pops in and does a sassy hair flip, completely stealing her mom’s spotlight.

2. The “No Boys Ever” Video

Ashlay makes it no secret that she’s not a fan of the idea of her daughter growing up and dating. This is one of many videos where she makes her feelings known.

3. When Olivia Reveals the Man Behind the Curtain

Olivia is not afraid of calling out her mom for her online shenanigans when they’re misleading. This is why we love Olivia–she’s all about keeping it real.

3. When Mom finds out you’ve been lying about boys…

In another hilarious video of Ashlay’s reactions to Olivia talking to boys, Olivia denies she’s talking to one before her mom catches her in the act and chases her off screen. This is an ongoing bit for the mom-daughter duo that, frankly, never gets old.

4. The Adorable #TBT of Young Olivia

Here’s a #TBT to when Olivia was super young and super adorable. As her mom and her brother sing One Direction’s “Olivia” on a split-screen, Olivia dances and sings before her hair suddenly turns into colorful braids. 

5. Mama Knows Best!

Both Olivia and her mom lipsync the lyrics to the song “Weak”–an ode to resisting the temptation of vices like drugs, alcohol, and sex. In the end, as usual, Olivia hilariously rebels against her mom making for comedic gold.

6. Me: “Momma, I’m a big girl now”. Momma: “Not if I have anything to do with it”.

Another hilarious “no boys” Tik Tok, Olivia sings Hairspray’s “Momma I’m a Big Girl Now” song and when she gets to the line “now I’d rather play around with teenage boys”, Ashlay cuts in and tells Olivia “You better run”. 

7. When the tables have turned

In a hilarious turning of tables, while usually, Olivia is the one to run away from Ashlay, when Ashlay tells Olivia “I don’t care about Fortnite”, she ends up being the one running!

8. Instant Regret.

The family drama continues! We’ve all been in the situation where we talk back to our madre and then immediately regret it. This Tik Tok illustrates that feeling of instant regret perfectly.

9. Potty Mouth

We know that if we had Ashlay as a mother, we’d be terrified to step out of line. Like in this video when Olivia is about to sing along to a song with the f-word and Ashlay steps in and makes her think twice about cussing.

10. Relatable AF

“Mom, I just want to tell you that I love you.” “What do you want?” How many of our moms have responded EXACTLY like that when we say those words to them? As usual, Ashlay and Olivia are spot-on with their interpretations of everyday life.

Women Are Sharing Their ‘I’m The One Paying For This, Not My Husband’ Moments And They’re Pretty Cringy

It’s 2021 y’all which means we’re a far cry away from 1974 when it only just became law that credit card companies had to issue cards to women without their husband’s signature. Still, here we are living in a world in which a Reddit post about related issues of today is going viral.

Recently a user by the name of teacherspet5859438e asked women of Reddit to share the times someone wrongly assumed they weren’t picking up the check.

The comments and stories in response to the post came in the thousands.

Check it out below!

“I hope this doesn’t get buried because it’s my absolute favorite thing. My husband and I were buying a new mattress. It was a joint decision on the feel of it, but my decision for the price-point/warranty/etc because I was paying for it. In other words, all the stuff we actually needed the salesperson for. Salesperson was a fine guy, old-fashioned, not overtly rude, but he was definitely talking to my husband more than to me (the one with the money to pay). I noticed but, eh, I’m used to it, I was going to get my info and pay the man. Whatever. My husband, bless him, wandered away all floaty, like he’d never seen a furniture store before (weird, but ok). Then he came back and said, “Hey, can I have some money? I’m going to go check out the (insert dumb little decorative thing in the other part of the store).” I was weirded out because I have never seen him care about a lamp enough to go examine it on his own and also we don’t… we don’t do that? But yeah, I said, sure, and handed him some cash. The salesman IMMEDIATELY stopped paying attention to my husband. Suddenly, in his mind, I was wearing all the pants. He started asking me what I did for a living, etc and I was able to negotiate for a slightly lower price. I love my husband so much. He knew exactly what he was doing.” –HansGruberHangover

“Wasn’t my husband, not even my boyfriend, but a guy friend I happened to have round when a joiner came to fix something in MY home. I welcomed the joiner in, started talking to him about the issue, then he saw my friend and did a 180° to talk to him. He literally turned his back on me while I was mid-sentence. In MY home.”- autumnrenarde

“This is such a common thing. At this point it is humorous because I am the one who is home more and likes to tinker with things, so when something breaks I am the one who can explain the history of things and what fixes I have attempted. My husband doesn’t know the first thing about dishwashers or dryers or chimney sweeping, for example.

Sometimes I refer to myself as Andy in emails to avoid being patronized. It is a reasonable nickname for my name, yet one I never normally use. But people automatically assume they are talking to a guy and I get a different attitude. Sad but true.” –Liepuzieds

“My scenario doesn’t quite fit the bill but I’m a female business owner with a male business partner. I’ve had a few customers born in the dark ages and reps that ask to “speak to my boss” but the worst was a guy who snapped his fingers and told me to “put the kettle on girly”. Needless to say he didn’t get his cuppa and he certainly didn’t get the discount he asked for.” –Blondeinsideandout

“So a while back my wife and I were hitting up local dealerships trying to find a replacement car for her 2006 Nissan subcompact. The first thing I would tell each salesman was that we were shopping around for a daily for her to drive. Honda dealership was stereotypical car salesman “We can’t even let her take a test drive unless she shows intent to buy” Ford dealership ignored her completely and tried to sell me a mustang. Toyota was like, “oh you must want to look at our (insert soccer mom vehicle here)”

But when we got to Mazda I told the sales guy the same thing that we were looking for her next car, and he immediately nodded, turned to her and asked “what do you look for in a car?” And then he just listened to her. He didn’t ask me anything for the rest of the time we were there, focused entirely on her and answering her questions. Never rushed her or pushed her towards a different model. So yeah we’ll probably be getting her a soul red Mazda3 cuz of that guy.” –Raeshkae

“When I was a baby for some reason I wouldn’t “latch on” when my mother breast fed me, so I wasn’t eating well. The doctor completely ignored my mom and only talked to my dad because she was “too hysterical”… He was on the verge of finding out what that looked like…”- TheHitListz

“We wanted a fence around our house. I have always worked from home, and my husband has always worked in a field where he cannot take time to meet with contractors, etc. he and I agree on terms up front and then I make decisions from there. It doesn’t matter in life, but for this story it does: I make more than my husband. We had already agreed on this company based on various factors. A man came over to give an estimate during a work day, which ended up being less than we expected to pay. I was ready to sign the papers and he said “I’d rather talk to your husband about the numbers and get his signature since he will be the one paying for it” I asked him to leave my property and never come back.” –Diligent-Reaction-23

“I also recently went to buy a car during a work day. My husbands car broke down and he was in the middle of a tow. It was a nightmare, and he needed a car ASAP. We had been saving for a replacement, but weren’t expecting to need it for another year. This, we had the cash to buy the car he wanted full out. I went to the dealership with the specs, etc to just get the deal done quick. He asked me if I could come back later in the day with my husband so they could talk “man to man” about the deal. I let him know he just lost a cash deal. I drove 30 minutes to a sister- dealership and made the purchase there. I told the new salesman about my experience at the previous dealership and he said he knew the guy and he was going to rub it in his face at the next regional meeting.” –Diligent-Reaction-23

“I took my colleague out to lunch. He wasn’t a subordinate he was at the same level, however I was given a company card and he wasn’t, due to the nature of our jobs. When the bill came around, the waitress gave it to him because she assumed he would be paying. He graciously grabbed the bill and gave it to me and said “she’s the boss”. Smart move: made me feel validated, and he got a free lunch.” –leafypaq

“I’ve been on the flip side of this. For years, I worked at bicycle shops and regularly sold some pretty expensive bikes. One day, a couple came in. The wife was interested in a bike, and it quickly became apparent that the husband was an overpowering, dominating type. “She wants to do this, she doesn’t want to do that, she likes this, she doesn’t like that” etc. When it became clear she wasn’t being allowed to do much speaking at all, I would let the husband as the question, and I’d reply by physically turning and giving the answer to the wife, making eye contact with her only and pointedly ignoring the husband. It was pretty blatant. She loved it. She lit up, engaged with me, and genuinely seemed to enjoy the process of learning more about riding and getting into a new sport/hobby.” –Cessnateur

“Yeah this side is rough, especially in the tattoo industry. The amount of couples that come in and the husband won’t let the wife talk about the tattoo SHE wants on her body.

Fortunately it’s an Industry where getting told to fuck off is not uncommon, so saying “mate! If you keep talking over the top of your partner, this is going to be a fucking shit tattoo, so how about you wait outside while we finish the consult” is rarely frowned upon. it never goes down well, but fuck those dudes.” –Dormantgoose

“Went to a wedding, had someone there I knew from school and I met his wife. Anytime I’d ask her something he would answer. But I’d ask her cause it was the first time meeting her and I knew her husband. He was controlling and wouldn’t let her talk. I finally got creative and started asking her super girly stuff so that he couldn’t answer. Asked her if she did her own nails and how she did it. I only made eye contact with her and her husband finally shut up.” –treehouseladder

“This. I’m a woman. Where I work I frequently have meetings with couples. It’s SO sad to see how many men demean or try to make their wives look stupid in front of me. I will always defend the wife’s point, or talk directly to her and stop engaging with the man when that happens. It’s actually sad that this happens in the first place and almost always makes me worry about their general well-being in life.” –Xmrtq99

“It’s not so much a particular story but when I was shopping for a car several years ago the salesmen at every dealership kept talking to my husband instead of me even though I was the one who contacted the dealerships and made sure to introduce myself first. My husband got sick of it and started telling them ‘Don’t talk to me, it’s not my car. Talk to her.’ I wound up buying from a saleswoman who treated us equally until she pretty quickly figured out my husband was not involved whatsoever in the decision.” –Dakizo

“Husband and I took my daughter to urgent care for stitches. Husband is holding the kid, and I check her in at the front desk iPad. Front desk man looks to my husband and asks for the insurance card…. we’re on my insurance so I hand him the card. Next he tells my husband the copay, looking at him, behind me, when I’m the one standing at the damn desk. I pull out my card with my name on it, and pay. Asshole.” –Fire-Kissed

“25 years ago my husband and I are looking for our first house. He had just graduated and still had student debt. I had been practicing law and had 20k saved for the downpayment. Real estate agent only spoke to husband, even if I asked the questions. In one house we went to look at the basement and the guy says “you don’t want to go there. It has spiders.” I told my husband I wouldn’t ever buy a house from him. Later the guy ran for office and I told everyone the story including a woman that called me randomly to promote his candidacy. Turns out she was his mother. It’s a small thing but indicative of his attitude toward ‘the fairer sex.’” –defenselaywer

“I am the money person in our relationship and this happens to me all the time. Every car we’ve bought, place we’ve rented, investment we’ve made, you name it. My husband is now very confident in telling the people that if they keep trying to talk to him about it the only decision he will be able to make is telling them to get lost.” –RealCouchwife

Kellyanne Conway Is Under Police Investigation After Video Of Her Abusing Her Daughter Goes Viral

Kellyanne Conway Is Under Police Investigation After Video Of Her Abusing Her Daughter Goes Viral

Chip Somodevilla / Getty

Last summer Claudia Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s daughter, gained national attention when she began to express her anti-Trump views on the social platform TikTok. At the start, it became clear that despite her parents’ high profile political positions Claudia was going to speak her mind and be honest about her thoughts on the now-former- American president. In her videos, Claudia criticized Trump for his policies and divisive nature, slammed her mother for her part in supporting him and spoke openly about the toxic nature of her own home.

Now, Claudia is coming to the surface again, this time to lambast her mother for her apparent abuse.

Kellyanne Conway is now currently under police investigation after Claudia claimed she was being abused by the former campaign manager to Donald Trump.

According to OK!, a member of the Alpine Police Department claimed that officers responded to the Conway’s household lat Wednesday, January 20, in response to a “juvenile matter.” The issue is apparently now under investigation after a third party (not Claudia) reported an incident.

In a video posted to TikTok last week, Claudia could be seen telling officers that she felt unsafe. Last week, Claudia quickly went viral after posting videos of a woman she claimed to be her mother verbally and physically abusing her.

At one point, the person off-camera purported to be Kellyanne Conway screams calls Claudia an “ungrateful b**tch” and later says “You’re lucky your mom’s pro-life.”

Claudia’s TikTok profile led her parents to attempt to ban her from social media.

Claudia’s hiatus from social media did not last long. Claudia is famous for trolling her parents on social media. Her level of trolling her parents, Kellyanne and George, outraged Kellyanne to the point of forcibly taking Claudia’s phone in a video.

In July, the daughter of Donald Trump’s right-hand man and personal “alternative fact-checker” (Kellyanne Conway) made headlines when journalists caught wind of her anti-Trump and pro-BLM TikTok videos. Now, Kellyanne’s daughter, Claudia, is speaking up again this time about her parents.

Claudia’s decision to speak out once again comes at the hands of her father’s latest tweet.

Only July 3, Conway’s father George spoke out in response to recent interviews with his daughter writing: “To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do not consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you.”

In a series of tweets that have now been deleted Claudia responded to her father “You’re just mad that I’m finally getting my voice heard. Sorry your marriage failed” according to Complex.

Claudia reportedly posted a series of tweets in response to accusations that she was angry. “Bahah I’m not angry, I’m chillin, I’m just over both of my parents trying to silence me” Claudia wrote in one of the now-deleted tweets and continuing by saying “my parents, particularly my mother, are trying to silence me by getting me to delete my social media. haha.”

At the time Claudia opened up about her decision to speak against Trump to Insider, explaining that despite the family’s polarizing political dynamics, she respects her parents. “They are the most generous, most well-educated people I have ever met,” Claudia said. “I look up to them and want nothing but success and good fortune for them. They are my parents and that trumps all — no pun intended.”

Clearly, when it comes to Kellyanne Conway, it turns out her apples are falling far from the tree.

Over the summervideos and posts shared from Claudia’s TikTok and Instagram posts revealed at least one out of four of Conway’s children isn’t a fan of her mother’s political party.

New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz thrust Claudia into the spotlight earlier this week when she shared a string of videos taken and posed by the teenager which feature her ribbing Trump supporters for their politics. In several posts, Claudia encouraged TikTok followers, which the Times has said clocks in at 16,000, to leave one-star reviews of the president’s businesses. She has also used her pages to make fun of the difficulty of having political opinions different from that of her politically polarized parents.

“Believe it or not you can have your own opinions simply by educating yourself,” Claudia said in one video.

In another TikTok post, Claudia wrote “why do people hate on trump supporters… like why can’t we just respect everyone’s opinions? SIKE nah block me pls and then educate yourself.”

Note: Ivanka Trump DOES follow Claudia on Instagram which means this teen has some cajones.

Claudia has also expressed support for Black Lives Matter protests.

In the bio section of her TikTok account, Claudia writes, “it’s a great day to arrest brett hankison, john mattingly, and myles cosgrove.” The post is a reference to the death of Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville, Kentucky police in her own home. According to The Washington Post, Taylor’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers. As of today, only Brett Hankison has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police.

Claudia isn’t the first Conway with liberals to cause some trouble for Kellyanne.

Conway’s husband George Conway, whom she married in April 2001, has been vocal about his negative opinions of Donald Trump. Throughout Trump’s presidency, Conway has questioned the president’s mental health, judgment, and intelligence. He has also drawn criticism from the president directly.

In 2019, Trump tweeted about Conway’s marriage to George Conway writing “George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” 

In a comment to Claudia’s recent post about having different opinions than your parents, one follower wrote “Hello sis welcome to the left,” to which Claudia replied. “Hehe I’ve been here girly.”
