Jamaica Entertainment News-‘Love is love no matter what gender’: Cardi B’s sister Hennessy Carolina speaks candidly about ‘hard’ decision to come out to her strict family, as she poses for a stunning magazine shoot
- Hennessy started her career on the reality show Love & Hip Hop with her sister
- She’s now working on projects for television and movies and has her own fashion line in the works
- The 22-year-old said she always has her sister’s back, but admitted that it hurts their feelings when people say mean things
- She also discussed coming out as gay to her less-than-accepting family but explained how she got them to come around
Cardi B may have been the second-ever female rapper to have a debut single on the Billboard Hot 100, but she’s not the only performer — or star — in the family.
The Bodak Yellow rapper’s 22-year-old sister Hennessy Carolina found reality TV fame on Love & Hip Hop, and she’s now building up her career in TV, movies, and fashion.
To that end, Hennessy stars in a new photoshoot for Paper magazine, looking positively stunning as she poses in designs by Gucci, Prada, Moschino, Marc Jacobs, and Versace.

Rising star: The 22-year-old, who is best known for appearing on the reality show Love & Hip Hop, is looking to build her career in movies and TV
Got style: She also has a fashion line coming out next year, after Cardi releases her own
Fans of Love & Hip Hop: New York already know Hennessy, but more people are sure to learn her name with the roster of projects she has coming up.
The Bronx native said she is currently working on things for TV and the movies, and also has her own fashion line in the works. It won’t come out until 2019, though, since her big sister Cardi is debuting a line at the end of this year, and she doesn’t want to compete.
‘We’re always looking out for each other,’ Hennessy told the magazine. ‘We grew up protecting each other, so it’s just natural. We only had each other, so that’s all we know.’
That means not just postponing her fashion line to let her sister’s shine without distraction, but also defending her against haters.
