"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Joseline Hernandez has proved to the world she is all woman, tackling transgender gossip by releasing a full body nude photograph.
Hernandez took to Twitter to reveal her NSFW naked image.
Joseline Hernandez, real name Shenellica Bettencourt, is an ex-stripper, hopeful rapper and side-chick to super-producer Stevie J. Her appearance on the debut episode of "Love & Hip Hop" established her as less of an artist and more like a sinister gold-digger. Yesterday, the Internet was ablaze with rumors that Joseline is allegedly a man. Several sources reported that the reality star is transgender. To prove the public wrong, Joseline tweeted a nude photo of herself exposing her lady parts to any skeptics. (The Urban Daily)
She made sure to inform followers the leak was far from accidental.
Joseline took to the social networking website on Tuesday to post a nude photograph of herself -- and we'll just say, those are not man parts below her navel. "B*tches I'm 100% women." she wrote alongside her visual evidence. "I will no longer entertain the foolishness. It's been real and fun," she added. The reality star's gender has been a topic of debate since she made her TV debut earlier this month, but after taking a step like this to prove her point, we're not sure there's much else to say.

Reports claim Hernandez may have spent time in the prostitution game.
It also seems that the spotlight is digging up some skeletons from Bettencourt's past. It was recently reported that the LAHHA star has an extensive criminal past, including arrests for Lewd & Lascivious Behavior aka prostitution along with battery charges. On the premiere of "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta," the former stripper is introduced as the new artist of producer Stevie J. The producer's longtime girlfriend, Mimi, is immediately worried that Stevie is spending way too much time in the studio with Joseline. (RapFix)
The "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star is currently attached to singer/producer Stevie J.
People had a lot to say about Joseline's love triangle with Stevie and Mimi Faust, so the stripper-turned-reality TV star hit up Twitter to respond to all of her detractors en masse. "I am @hitmansteviej girl and Mimi is the baby moms and girl too. Was wrong with that?" she asked Tuesday. It doesn't seem like a big deal to her because she plans on hanging onto Stevie for the rest of her natural life, even if she gets hitched to someone else. She did say she and Stevie are a "forever thing" on Monday's premiere. (S2S Magazine)
