Shalishah says she is “unapologetically high-maintenance”
Shalishah’s blog shows a very candid side of her personality and clearly, her followers love it. Shalishah is open about who she is as a person and makes no excuses for it.
In one of her blogs, she speaks about her experience with men and admits to being ‘high-maintenance.’
In the blog she said, “I have always thought to myself why should I settle for less than what I can provide for myself and what I would want to give to others?”
Shalisha continued, ” It may sound superficial- but to me, life is way too short to be thinking of what could have happened or being miserable because I forced myself to be content with something that wasn’t up to what I really want. After all, we will both end up unhappy.”
Her honesty is refreshing and her followers can’t get enough! Catch up with Celebs Go Dating to see more of Shalishah in action.
