Introduction

Gracyanne Barbosa is a bodybuilding inspiration for many, despite not being a bodybuilder herself. This woman has a body that has captivated many, and her intensive workouts brought her to fame. Was being a model on Instagram always her desired career – is she using steroids?

Early life and education

Gracyanne Jacobina Barbosa Vieira was born on 20 September 1983, in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

She grew up with her mother, Ledir Jacobina, and her sister, Giovanna Jacobina; there is no disclosed information about her father. From elementary school, she was a huge fan of sports, and became skilled in gymnastics. After completing her early education in 1999, she moved to Rio de Janeiro to attend law school when she was only 16 years old. However, she experienced some financial problems, so to earn enough money to survive, she began dancing, and completely dropped out of law school in 2000, after completing only one semester.

Dance Career

At the beginning of her career, Barbosa joined the axé dancing group called Tchakabum. She toured with the group for the next nine years, traveling all around Brazil. She kept fitness training during her free time, and her good physique quickly gained recognition, and in 2007 she was even featured on the December cover of the Brazilian Playboy magazine.

In 2008, Barbosa left Tchakabum to pursue a modeling career, and to further take care of her body.

She became a Drum Queen (known as ‘Rainha de Bateria’ in Portuguese) for many Brazilian carnivals, and quickly rose to become a celebrity in her home country. In December 2011, she was on the cover of Brazilian magazine called Revista Sexy.

Online Career

In 2012, Barbosa joined the social media platform, Instagram, on which she would post her workout routines. Her figure quickly attracted millions of followers, and she became a star on the internet.

The workout video posted by her in which her squat weight of around 450lbs (204kg), left the bodybuilding community in shock. Many even suspected that the weight shown on the video was fake, but she denied the accusations.

As of May 2020, Barbosa has over 8.4 million followers on Instagram. She is the brand ambassador of several fitness-related brands, such as MetaboliTea, plus she founded her own fitness clothing brand. On her profile, she usually posts motivational photographs, workout regimes, and photos of her face and body. She is signed to Smart Producoes, and her managers are Carol and Natalia.

Personal Life

Barbosa met the famous Brazilian singer, Marcelo Pires Vieira, in 2009. Better known by his stage name Belo, his hits include “Belo Ao Vivo”, “Seu Fa Ao Vivo” and “Procura-se Um Amor”. Before meeting Barbosa, he was married to Viviane Araujo, another Brazilian Drum Queen, and Barbosa’s acquaintance. This made many media try to source gossip about the antagonism between the two dancers, but neither of them ever commented about each other. Barosa and Belo dated in secret for a while, before marrying on 18th May 2012.

The wedding was held at the Candelaria Church located in Rio de Janeiro and the ceremony was public; as of May 2020, the couple doesn’t have any children.

Barbosa has been accused of having several plastic surgery processes done on her body, most notably to have had breast augmentation surgery, as her chest has grown a lot from the time she posted her first photos. She is also accused of having a rhinoplasty (‘nose-job’), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and several buttock lifts, or even a full-blown implant on her rear side. Barbosa herself has never denied nor admitted to ‘going under the knife’.

Many people have also stated that her muscles can’t be completely natural, and that she is most likely using steroids – she’s refused to comment on these rumors as well. As she is not a professional bodybuilder and she doesn’t have to have doping tests, it is a question whether or not the truth will come out.

Another social media platform that Barbosa is active on is Twitter, with over 240,000 followers.

Net worth

Barbosa earns most of her money from her social media accounts, as she has a lot of brand deals and sponsorships on Instagram.

She also has her own clothing line, offers samba and salsa dance lessons from time to time, and participates at several Carnivals in Brazil. As of May 2020, her net worth is estimated at around $28 million.

Physical characteristics and Workout Routine

Gracyanne Barbossa is a tall, muscular woman who stands at a height of 5ft 9ins (1.76m), weighs around 154lbs (70kgs), with vital statistics of 34-27-40. She has tanned skin, dark hair, and black eyes.

Her well-defined physique is a result of her workout routine, as she works out five days a week and rests during the weekend. On Mondays and Thursdays she exercises her legs, on Tuesdays and Fridays she focuses on her posterior muscles, and on Wednesdays she does her back, arms, chest, and shoulder exercises. She is also on a strict high-food intake diet, which involves up to six daily meals made-up mostly from lean proteins, complex carbs and healthy fats, while keeping her glucose levels low.

Published

on

Zack Carpinello, known also as Zack Clayton is an American professional wrestler and boyfriend of a famous reality TV star JWoow.

Early life, family, starting career

Zack Carpinello was born on 20 December 1994, in Albany County, Bethlehem, New York USA. Zack has a sister. Her name is Erica and she is older than him. He finished high school in Bethlehem Central School in 2013, where he was playing football.

He continued in Hudson Valley Community College and spent two years in Your Face Wrestling Foundation in Albany. Carpinello also attended Johnny Rodz’s wrestling school in Brooklyn, where he got the skills and knowledge that needed him to go up in his career.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B7hW4YqgRAK/

‘After high school, I always knew I wanted to do it,’ said Carpinello in an interview for Spotlight news. ‘I was an athlete all the way through high school, up until college. I knew I didn’t want to continue football’. He was training fitness very hard and he said that it was the most natural thing he has ever done. He was watching wrestling for a long time and was amazed by the size of the wrestlers. ‘The end goal is to get to WWE — to be a champion there, to be the best I absolutely can be’, highlighted Carpinello. Zack Clayton is the name he uses in the ring. Actually, Clayton is his middle name.

He had to promote a character for himself, so he decided to take this name and to stay authentic. His character is a bad guy. In every match there is a bad and good guy. Carpinello can perform both, but he prefers the “bad guy”. He was wrestling in the Spanish leagues Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA).  So, Clayton appeared on Telemundo few times.

Carpinello also trains athletes in Top Form. He lives in Los Angeles, California.

Personal life

In March 2019 Zack Carpinello started dating Jennifer Lynn Farley, also known as JWoow. She is an American reality TV star, nine years older than him. Farley has almost seven million followers on Instagram, so when she announced her new relationship, Carpinello found himself in the spotlight. So, he is also known as JWoow’s boyfriend. But, they have a mutual friend, his sister Erica. ‘She’s been one of my friends since I was 15, and I met her in the principal’s office because we both got in trouble. And cut to 20 years later, I’m now dating her brother, so it’s fun’, Farley said on the MTV VMA Red carpet last year.

Carpinello’s nickname is “24” thanks to his girlfriend and it’s referring his age at the time. He got it while Farley was filming Jersey Shore revival.

Girlfriend Jennifer Lynn Farley

Farley was born on 27 February 1986 in East Greenbush, New York. She finished high school in Columbia School and continued at New York Institute of Technology. She started her career in Graphic Design business. But she went on an audition for Jersey Shores, MTV reality series and in 2009 with seven others housemates she became part of the series.

The first and the third seasons were filmed in New Jersey, the second in Miami, Florida, the fourth in Florence, Italy and the final two back in New Jersey. Farley published in 2010 a book “The Rules according to JWoow: Shore-tested secrets on landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death and Kicking the Competition to the Curb”.

In 2012 Farley and her costar from Jersey Shore, Nicole Polizzi started “Snooki&JWoow” on MTV. In 2015 they continued “Snooki&JWoow: Moms with attitude”.

The same year she won the seventh season of Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition. Her film debut was for an indie production “The Mint”. In 2013 Farley got in the GQ’s “Sexiest 100 ladies of the 21st Century”. Farley married Roger Mathews in 2015. Their daughter was born in 2014 and their son in 2016. Two years later she filed for divorce.

Last year in April she confirmed her new relationship, not revealing his identity. But, after a short time the public found out that the new boyfriend was a professional wrestler.

The couple often publishes photos of themselves on Instagram. In October last year Angelina Pivarnic, Farley’s friend and costar accused Carpinello for inappropriate behavior. It was all filmed on the episode of Jersey Shore:The vacation few month earlier, but aired in October. Farley found out as well as the audience.

The Truth About Shawn Oakman: What You Didn’t Know About Him

Published

on

Who is Shawn Oakman?

American Football defensive end Shawn Michael Oakman was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, on 7 April 1992, meaning that Aries is his zodiac sign. He’s probably known best for the time which he’s spent playing for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL), while Shawn’s also competed in Champions Indoor Football (CIF), American Arena League (AAL) and the XFL.

Education and early life

Shawn was raised alongside his siblings in Philadelphia, by their mother Vernetta who was a drug addict; she’s now been clean for years, and has revealed in an interview that she wasn’t able to provide a stable home for her children. Vernetta’s also revealed that she was sexually abused as a child, was seven when she began taking psychiatric drugs, and 15 when she took cocaine for the first time. Shawn’s father wasn’t around while he was growing up, and he eventually died from cancer.

Shawn and his siblings tried their best to behave as if they were a normal family, because they were afraid of Child Protective Services splitting them into foster homes; in 2002, when Shawn was 10, his mother was sentenced to a year and a half behind bars for being in possession of a criminal weapon, and was then arrested in 2004 for theft, and in 2005 and 2008 for prostitution. A year later, she was diagnosed with HIV, while she’s today also struggling with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Shawn and his brother Future were sent to live with their cousin Kenn Roberts, an American Army veteran who together with his wife Tracy had previously fostered 13 disadvantaged children; Kenn’s revealed that Shawn had anger issues when he arrived, and that he didn’t want to go to school or talk to anyone.

Shawn thus had to take speech classes, and was given chores by Kenn and his wife, such as walking the dog, cutting the lawn and folding laundry. He found comfort in playing basketball while attending Penn Wood High School, and took his school to the state title during his junior year, however, it was obvious even at that time that Shawn’s future was in football.

He matriculated in 2010 and then enrolled at Penn State University on a football scholarship.

College career

Shawn was redshirted in 2011, and was then dismissed from their football team the Nittany Lions on 27 February 2012, for unknown reasons; this made him transfer to Baylor University in July of the same year.

Shawn had to skip the 2012 football season because of transfer rules, and only began playing for the Baylor Bears in 2013; he was a backup defensive end in 13 games, and finished the season with two sacks and 33 tackles. He made his breakthrough in the 2014 season, recording 11 sacks and 25.5 tackles; he was a consensus All-Big 12 selection, while he earned third-team All-America honors from Associated Press.

Instead of making himself eligible for the National Football League Draft (NFL), Shawn chose to spend another year at Baylor, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2015.

Football career

Shawn was arrested on sexual assault charges only two weeks before the 2016 NFL Draft, which made him ‘undraftable’; he indeed wasn’t drafted, but was found not guilty of the sexual assault a couple of months later.

Shawn was signed by the Triangle Torch of the AAL in November 2017, and on 8 March 2018 signed with the Bismarck Bucks of CIF; he then signed with the Austin General of The Spring League on 6 April 2019, and with the West Virginia Roughriders of AAL in June 2019.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CTfNUvqJt2D/

He was drafted by the Los Angeles Wildcats of the XFL on 16 October 2019, but was waived on 17 December of the same year; the Wildcats re-signed Shawn on 24 January 2020, but his contract was terminated when the league suspended its operations on 10 April 2020.

Shawn signed with the Toronto Argonauts of CFL on 15 February 2021, and in March 2021 played in Fan Controlled Football’s People’s Championship.

Love life and relationships

Shawn shies away from sharing the details of his love life with his fans; it’s known that he’s been in a relationship with several girls, as some have accused him of rape and physical assault, but the names of these girls haven’t been revealed.

There are some people on the internet who believe that Shawn’s struggling with his sexuality, and that he’s actually gay, but this hasn’t been addressed by him.

There are also those who believe that he’s today in a long-term relationship with a non-celebrity Canadian girl, as some have claimed to have seen the two spending time together, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.

Shawn seems to be unattached as of May 2023, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Problems with the authorities

Shawn was involved in an incident at Penn State University on 25 February 2012, and was charged with retail theft, harassment and disorderly conduct; he had shoved a cashier and fled the scene – this was the incident which led to his dismissal from the university’s football team.

In January 2013, a woman claimed that she’d been physically assaulted by Shawn, and that he had grabbed her under her armpits and pushed her against a brick wall.

He was arrested on 13 April 2016, after a woman accused him of sexual assault. According to the woman, the two had met at a bar and Shawn invited her to his off-campus residence; he then forced her into his bedroom, took her clothes off and raped her. Shawn was indicted on second-degree sexual assault charged on 20 July 2016 by a grand jury in McLennan County, but was found not guilty on 28 February 2019.

Height, eyes and wealth

Shawn’s age is 31. He has black hair and brown eyes, is 6ft 9ins (2.06m) tall and weighs around 290lbs (130kgs).

Shawn’s net worth’s been estimated at over $2 million, as of May 2023.
