• They have 7 children and the channel has almost two million subscribers and over 350 videos.
• Alena and Joe express their cultural mix through their content, such as Korean culture and food, and tackling everyday challenges of having a busy household.
• They are estimated to have a net worth of $650,000 from 270 million views accumulated.
• Alena and Joe also use their social media platforms to promote the culture of living together and to discuss current political and racial divisions.

What is MAZELEE YouTube Channel about?

Mazalee is a family-oriented channel that explores the challenges of multi-racial marriage, which documents the everyday experience in the life of a large family of nine, with parents of different racial and cultural backgrounds. Content creators of the channel are Alena Maze, a 35-year-old African American YouTube star, and her husband Joseph Lee, a photojournalist, and director of photography, whose parents immigrated to the US from South Korea.

Who is Alena Maze?

Alena Maze was born on 3 September 1985, in the USA. Before her career on YouTube, she obtained a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from Georgetown University, and was awarded her Ph.D. in Survey Methodology and Statistics from the University of Maryland, College Park, soon afterwards.

She worked as a mathematical statistician for the US Government from 2010.

Not much is known about her relationships, but in 2009 she had already become the mother of four children, when she launched her YouTube channel, with aspirations of creating content that would provide tips, entertainment, and insight into her life as a single mum. At the beginning of her career, she focused mainly on hairstyle, food, and making vlogs of herself and the children. However, her career as a YouTuber flourished when she started the channel MAZELEE together with her husband, Joe Lee. Today they have 7 children: Amyah, Akyli, Azaio, Arazo, Ajedi, Ajoui and Baby #7, who are often the focuses of their videos.

Her husband Joseph Lee

Alena and Joe met back in high school – Joseph was born in Maryland – but life took them in different directions. However, they maintained a friendly relationship during that period, which almost a decade later became crowned by marriage and three children! Having had experience as a skilled photo-journalist and director of photography, it’s a no-brainer that Joe is the artistic lead behind MAZELEE productions. Today, a devoted father, he makes content with Alena and enriches their life by adding  Korean influence, such as culture and food. He successfully bounces from being a full-time dad to being a YouTuber and editor. Through their posts and content, Joe often expresses his perspective as a male Korean in tackling the everyday challenges of having a busy household.

MAZELEE YouTube Channel

Combining their last names, Alena and Joe created the name MAZELEE  for a YouTube channel that now has almost two million subscribers and over 350 videos. They share with their audience almost all aspects of their life, such as simple and common every morning routine in the family of seven children, family gatherings, an unusual train journey through the US, or moving to a new house in California.

They are also known to film and document some highly personal and intimate moments, such as the video in which subscribers found out about Alena’s (seventh) pregnancy. All the details about their life are spiced with a slight tone of humor, presenting the family as enjoying every moment they spend together.

However, the popularity of the family also comes from their differences in culture and racial backgrounds.

Another element that contributes to the high ratings of this channel is the fact that the family does not try to show a perfectly harmonious life in which there are no setbacks and tensions that are normal, even in less demanding households. Every YouTuber knows that having your life on display and open to the public can sometimes be a two-way street. There are a lot of ‘trolls’ on the internet who do not hesitate to share their opinion and criticize Alena as a mother, and her didactic skills.  All comments are always positive, but some don’t give much chance for the survival of this relationship in the long run. Yet, at least for now, this couple manages to find balance and settle all their differences.

Their cultural mix is also expressed through Joe’s culinary skill , as they all like to eat Korean food, so it’s not a suprise that they post videos about Korean food on their Channel. Joe speaks Korean and teaches their youngest children to speak the language, and with them Alena has learned a few phrase as well! They both seem to be willing to learn from the other, to encourage each other on an intellectual, creative and every other level.

A very important and interesting dimension of their channel is its religious element. Alena is known to profess a spiritual outlook and journey – she often cites bible verses and shares her inner thoughts religion-wise, and how they affect her mental state and uprbringing.

Both her and Joe seem to enjoy their roles as parents, and having in mind their dynamics and cultural diversity,  their channel has ammased a huge number of followers and views.

An Unusual couple

Although  America is known as a ”melting pot“ in general, still the combination of a black woman and a Korean guy is an unusual sight. The fact remains that together they look unusual enough that rarely anyone connects or observes them as a couple! Yet they are, and by breaking stereotypes, they prove that when people create and share common values ​​and build their relationship on understanding and mutual respect, then there are no barriers.

Being a father to four children at the very beginning of their relationship must have been a big challenge for Joe, who had no children before his marriage to Alena.

Still, he seems to have done great in that demanding role.  Alena, on the other hand, also had to deal with certain prejudices that Joe’s family, especially his mother, had towards her! It was certainly a shock for that Korean family when their son decided to marry a black woman with four children from a previous marriage, just a week after she officially divorced her ex-husband!

However, everything fell into place when their first baby was born, and both families quickly learned and accepted that opening up to others and different people is something that enriches and represents an advantage, and not an obstacle. This couple proves that what seems to be a difference could be turned into an enjoyable diversity and advantage.

How much money does MAZELEE make? Net Worth?

With a prolific channel, their estimated net worth is $650,000 from 270 million views accumulated. The channel gets an average of 150,000 views per day, earning around $750 from the ads that appear on their channel.  As YouTube channels are a very popular and effective way to promote brands and businesses, it is not surprising that MAZELEE is often affiliated with various sponsors such as Hershey’s, Universal Studio Hollywood, WAYB, Google, etc.

Are they active on Instagram and other social media?

Although they seem to be completely preoccupied with their large and dynamic family, they are both active on social networks, where in addition to numerous photos, they also publish comments related to current trends in social life.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIqGHt4DYm2/

In these trying times when basic human rights are tested, Alena took to herself to share her opinions. On her Instagram profile, she posted the photo of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed 25-year-old black man, who was shot while jogging near Brunswick in Glynn County and whose killers have not been arrested.

She also wrote an affirmative message urging Americans to vote in the last election by linking the slogan „Black Life Matter“ with the slogan „Black vote matters!“ That is her way of reminding the Afro Americans that the right to vote is acquired through long and arduous ancestral struggle, and thus should not be taken for granted.

At the time when American society is facing various political challenges, and when racial divisions are back in focus, this couple does not just promote the culture of living together – they prove it is possible to reconcile differences and prejudices. Isn’t that the real spirit of the US?

Naked Truth of Paris Dylan Roxanne – Catfish, Biography

Published

on

Who is Paris Roxanne?

Paris Dunn was born on 21 February 1994, in Riverside, California, USA, and is a social media personality, but best known for rising to fame in 2011 after becoming involved in a catfishing scandal that nearly destroyed the career of then NBA-player Chris Andersen. The scheme turned out to be an international investigation to find the culprit.

The Net Worth of Paris Roxanne

As of early-2020, Paris Roxanne’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. She later found further fame through social media, which opened opportunities for her to work as a model.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B9w61e7hT_q/

She also probably benefits from the success of her current partner, singer Don McLean, who has a net worth estimated to be over $50 million.

Early Life and Chris Andersen

Paris grew up in Southern California and lived a life relatively out of the spotlight. At a young age she aspired to become a model, and set up various online accounts showcasing her attractive qualities especially her looks. She gained a small following online but things changed when she was suddenly contacted by National Basketball Association (NBA) player, Chris Anderson.

Chris Andersen, also known as the Birdman, found fame playing in the NBA for teams such as the Denver Nuggets, at the time the two met online. Andersen was noted for his career resurgence, rising from issues with drugs to finding himself a part of several high profile teams including the Miami Heat with which he would win a championship. Other teams he played with include the Memphis Grizzlies and the New Orleans Hornets. After retiring from the NBA, he found more work as a player in The Big 3 League.

The Catfish Scheme

Surprised that a celebrity was contacting her, Roxanne immediately began chatting with Andersen.

They exchanged messages back and forth and she lied about her age, claiming that she was already 21 even though she was only 17 at the time. She was also contacted online by someone claiming to be Andersen’s best friend named Tom Taylor, who urged that the two should meet up. Eventually her conversations with Andersen escalated and the two began exchanging more private content, sending each other nude photos. The two planned to meet up, and Taylor also encouraged her to travel to him so that they could hang out.

The date eventually arrived and the two had sex though there were times that she was confused about some of their conversations.

The basketball player seemed to talk about people and events that she couldn’t recall, but just brushed it off as some eccentricity. Following her return home, she got messages from Taylor and she told him that she was probably not interested in meeting with Andersen anymore as another basketball player was contacting her and she was interested in meeting him.

The Investigation

Taylor began messaging Paris with increasing frustration, desperation and anger, sending her death threats and suddenly came off aggressive. According to him, he had a copy of her nude photos that Andersen shared with him, and that he was going to expose her to the internet. Fearing for her life, she told her mother and the two approached the police with the information they had.

On Andersen’s end, he began getting messages about someone claiming to be Paris’ mother who informed him that she was underage and that they were going to the authorities to report him. The player sent the message to his lawyer who quickly stood up against the extortion. Despite that, Andersen sent her around $3000 in hopes of keeping things quiet. Eventually, with the information Paris had sent to the police, an investigation was underway and a search of the player’s home revealed that he didn’t know anyone named Tom Taylor. Police then traced their phones and discovered that they weren’t talking to one another, but their messages were being filtered through another person living in Canada, the one pretending to be Tom and pretending to be Paris’ mom.

Arrest and Conviction

While Andersen didn’t have any problem with their sexual encounter as she was of legal consent age in Colorado, the photos he had of her might be construed as a form of child pornography. With investigations, things were tense because if judgment were to be put on him, it would mean the end of his NBA career. Police eventually ruled him out as a conspirator or a suspect, but also as a victim in the case.

The police discovered the true culprit in Manitoba, Canada; a woman named Shelly Chartier. She was a social outcast living with a bedridden mother, and only had a computer with internet for her entertainment.

She discovered how to catfish a few years back, pretending to be several personalities online such as a YouTuber, reality star Brody Jenner, and a Playboy Playmate. Because the US law enforcement didn’t have jurisdiction there, she was arrested by Canadian police, and spent a year in prison in Canada.

The following events proved unusual, as she seemed to have become reformed after her stint in prison, regretting her actions of catfishing. She also found a husband from New York who visits her frequently though he cannot stay for long as he isn’t a Canadian citizen. She also can’t visit the US as she would be tried for extortion if she sets foot in the country, leading to a possible 25 years in prison.

Paris Roxanne Today

After a few years away from the spotlight, Roxanne finally fulfilled her dream of becoming a social media personality. The fame she got with her case with Andersen helped her career significantly. Their story was even featured on shows such as “Catfish” and “20/20”. In recent years, she gained attention once more, as she started a relationship with the singer Don McLean. The relationship was noted for their large age gap, with McLean being over 70 years old while she is still in her 20s. Before becoming partners, he was married twice and has two children from his second marriage.

Naked Truth of Instagram Star – Ana Lorde – Who is she?

Published

on

Who is Ana Lorde?

Ana Lorde was born on 15 July 1988, in San Diego, California, USA, and is a social media personality as well as a glamour model, best known for her account on Instagram which has over two million followers. She is a proclaimed ‘world’s biggest boobs’ award winner and also does private adult shows for paying subscribers.

The Riches of Ana Lorde

As of early-2020, Ana Lorde’s net worth is estimated to be over $700,000, earned largely through a successful online career. She earns an increasing monthly salary thanks to her online adult work, while she also gains sponsorships and other opportunities thanks to her huge following on Instagram.

Online Beginnings

Ana grew up in California, and at a young age developed a love for adventure. She was raised in a very liberal environment, and eventually developed a desire to pursue a career as a model. Unlike the traditional modeling route most people are accustomed to, she opted to become a glamour model, models who are known for flaunting their body and figure. Many glamour models engage in near-nude or nude photoshoots, often wearing minimal clothing such as bikinis or sleepwear.

One of the reasons for her quick rise to fame is her large breasts, which many of her followers found appealing.

She discovered the website Instagram, and began posting regularly on the site, often displaying her large breasts, though kept on the borderline of what was acceptable on the popular photo-sharing site. Her followers grew significantly in number over the years, and this attracted several companies and publications to her. She then decided to expand her reach further, by creating accounts on other online sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Publication Features

Lorde added more to her growing resume as she was contacted by the publication “Playboy”, which did a feature photo shoot of her for the magazine, one of the most recognized brands in the world.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B-h7RK9pOLx/

The magazine established by Hugh Hefner is one of the major factors of the sexual revolution. Many women who’ve posed for the magazine consider a feature on “Playboy” as one of the peaks of beauty, attractiveness and fame, due to the reputation the magazine has built, featuring some of the most attractive women in the world. She became featured in an international edition of the magazine in Serbia, visiting one of their key mansion locations there.

Ana has also been featured in “FHM” or For Him Magazine, the men’s magazine known for its annual feature of the 100 sexiest women in the world, often including top models, celebrities, athletes, online personalities and many others.

Another magazine she’s been featured in is “Maxim”, which is on par in popularity with the other publications, and is a men’s magazine based in New York City, also known for featuring women who are at the top of their careers. These magazines have a few of the largest and widest circulations around the world.

Adult-Oriented Content

One of the main ways Ana earns her income is through adult-oriented content, which can be accessed through paid monthly subscriptions. She uses the Snapchat app as her primary app due to its features on privacy. The app allows users to post photos and videos for a short period of time before they become unavailable.

It quickly became a popular app due to its implementation of augmented reality. Eventually, the app started offering a new feature called Snapcash, which allows its users to earn income for exclusive content. Since the introduction of this feature, it has become a popular hub for porn stars and adult content creators. With its popularity, it has become one of the biggest parts of the online porn industry, responsible for helping bring back income to sex workers, as they gain money directly as opposed to using porn companies.

To help promote her nude and adult-oriented content on Snapchat, she also used her Twitter account to become a key marketing tool to promote her content, since Twitter doesn’t employ a many restrictions on the type of content people can put out.

Users can promote these types of content, provided that Twitter warns users before they are able to view such uploads.

Recent Endeavors and the Social Media Sex Industry

In recent months, Lorde has been more active in posting online content, and promoting her online shows. This is due to the increased online activity as people are mostly homebound to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Models and other Instagram personalities are also mostly at home, so they have to improvise by making more content while at home, or increasing their activity as seen with many sex workers and adult stars.

Studies have shown that social media has increasingly become a hub for sex workers to migrate to due, due to their ease of access and the popularity these types of websites generate. By complying with the policies of a website such as Instagram, they can advertise their services suggestively, and use the popular platform as a stepping stone to help bring money in. Instagram has also been a concern for others who know of women who have accrued luxurious lifestyles through becoming online prostitutes, serving only the most luxurious and wealthy of men.

Advertisement

These interactions often can’t be tracked due to how some apps promote privacy, and do not store any data about conversations to avoid any breach.

Personal Life

Ana Lorde is single, and doesn’t talk about any past or present romantic endeavors. There are rumors that she may be interested in women due to her promotion of the work of others who have a similar career to hers. She promotes the work of Dakota James a lot, which has led to some rumors that the two are either close friends or something else is going on behind the scenes. This, however, has not been confirmed.
