Who was Bo Talley BEfore the instafame & 50K+ Followers?

bo-talley-43443 copyBO Talley was and is the same person she is now. Nothing has changed but the fact that more people on this earth know me, than just only my family and friends. Everything you see me do now, is what I’ve always done in the past. Charity events, planning my own events, being a part of the entertainment industry,  workingout, ETC… it’s all who I have always been.. Nothing has changed..

Why do you think are people so intrigued by Ms Bo Talley?

I feel like there are still people on this earth that really like real people. I know when I was put out on social media some thought I was a fake person but when people found out who I REALLY AM , THEY began to realize,  she’s real, she has a real family, she’s a real businesswoman,  she really does workout And that’s her real gray hair, Lol.  I’m always TRYING to encourage people know matter what the situation is, so when I run into people who see me on social media and then They find out that I’m a really nice person they are really amazed.  people think I should have an bad attitude because my picture has been sprayed  all over social media in a positive and negative light. I’m not mad about it, so when they see I don’t have an attitude and I’m really nice to them they continue to want to get to know more about me..

We get to see the socialite/businesswoman side of Bo, but deep down inside, you’re really a family girl right?

My family is my life, my family is the reason why I do what I do and my family is why I am who I am. The connection between me and my children is breakable. I grew up from humble beginnings and I grew up learning to protect MY family. THIS is Why I am ride or die my children, FOR MY FAMILY. They support me so much and understand my purpose and my mission in life. That it Allows me to be me. Their Not ashamed of me, they support me and they’re happy for me.  THEY LOVE ME AND I LOVE THEM..

You allowed the BE Team to completely transform your look for the cover & the shoot…how did it feel to see yourself with black hair & to play dress up with us?

OHH MY GOSH, IT WAS AMAZING. To completely transform is always fun. Since a child I always played dress-up with me and my dolls. What ever I would put on that day I would draw it, cut it out from a plain piece of school paper and put it on my dolls. We would be twins, lol so to have the Be team play dress-up with me was absolutely FUN.
