We’re not surprised├óΓé¼┬ª
If you noticed, Rachel was very particular with her answer, making sure to sidestep the issue by saying:
“I certainly don’t stay out of the sun and I also don’t, as some of the critics have said, put on blackface as a performance.”
Because she answered this way, did she lie? Well, we guess TECHNICALLY she didn’t, but again, she’s also not being upfront and forthcoming with the ENTIRE truth.
The reason we say this is because a source has come forward and said that Rachel was a loyal and frequent customer at the Palm Beach Tan in Spokane, Washington and was even a fan of the particular brand of spray, Mystic Tan.
Now the source didn’t say if Rachel chose the “light,” “medium” or “dark” shade option, but another source claimed that Rachel was a medium girl.
This shouldn’t really come as THAT much of a surprise to anyone, but what seems disappointing about it is that in an interview where Rachel had the chance to be fully honest and forward, she decided not tell all the facts, and avoided issues, probably knowing full-well what she was doing.
In our opinion, when trying to do damage control, honesty is the best policy, but hey, perhaps it was just a mistake and like Ross in Friends, she didn’t count enough “Mississippis” and just got sprayed twice — or maybe she’s just not quite “sane” as her father puts it.
Either way, we’ll continue to be interested to see how bits and pieces of Rachel’s story start to unravel.
