Shayne Dahl Lamas-Richie
Where do I even begin with this beauty? Shayne Lamas-Richie really is a queen, wife to Nik Richie notorious owner/blogger of thedirty.com, daughter of Lorenzo Lamas, granddaughter of Arlene Dahl, and most importantly mother of Press Lamas-Richie, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie, & one more on the way.
Her soul is as beautiful as the Christian Louboutin's on her feet. She is the true definition of glam. I've always been a fan of Shayne's fashion sense, I knew I had to hear more about her home. From the shoes on her feet to the hats on her head she is always dressed to the 9 whether it's a casual day in the park with her daughter or a date night with her man. She is an amazing mother, wife, and human. I knew this interview would be amazing. Get to reading. Muah! xx
