Shavonda Billingslea was featured as a member of the cast in the fifteenth season of the hit MTV reality television series The Real World, which was set in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was born on February 16, 1983, into a family of African-American heritage. Billingslea has been described as very beautiful as well as the life of the party, and she enjoys getting attention from men. During her high school days, she was active on the cheerleading squad, and was crowned the school’s first ever African-American homecoming queen. She has also exerted effort to live independently without receiving any aid or support from her family.
This was proven when she decided to go on and pursue higher learning at Grossmont Community College, as she worked hard to put herself through there and pay for her own education. During the time of the show, Billingslea also had a boyfriend that she wanted to stay loyal to, even if he wasn’t the typical kind of jock who kept trying to win her affection like many others. What set this one apart was his sense of humor, which she appreciated, and she liked being persistently pursued. Because she grew up with a rough childhood, Billingslea continues to brace herself for the worst while hoping for the best.
