Another person revealed that they “thought the Barbie trailer would complete” them, however, added, “But then I remembered that I still don’t know how Heather Gay got a black eye.”

Does Meredith Marks Know How Heather Gay Got a Black Eye?

Did Whitney Rose Give Heather Gay a Black Eye?
Heather and Whitney Rose‘s relationship has had its ups and downs throughout the season. However, the Wild Rose Beauty founder, 36, has denied giving Heather the black eye.
