Even though she isn't exactly new to the cast of Little Women: Atlanta, Season 4 was definitely Samantha Ortiz's time to shine. She got promoted from being a guest to having a recurring role to being a main cast member on the hit Lifetime series, and now she's standing out on her own. Keep reading below to find out more about Sam!
Where is Sam from?
Even though she's currently living in Atlanta, Sam is originally from New Jersey. She moved to the A with her longtime pal and fellow Little Women: Atlanta star Tanya Scott as a way to grow her clientele and as a favor to Tanya, since Sam lives with Tanya and helps take care of Tanya's young children.
What is Sam's job?
Besides being a reality star, Sam is also a makeup artist. Sam is so good at her craft that her co-star Shirlene "Ms.Juicy" Pearson hired her to beat her face for a very important photo shoot for her cover story in Sheen Magazine — and fans even got to go behind-the-scenes of the shoot during a recent episode.
Sam is also an entrepreneur. She is gearing up to drop her own makeup line called Sam's Glam Shop, and so far she's teased products like false lashes and strobe drip highlighters.
She didn't approve of her bestie's man.
Last season, there was some drama between Sam and Tanya after Tanya decided that she wanted to try to make things work with her ex and baby daddy Nico Cobb by allowing him to move in the home that Sam and Tanya share, and Sam didn't hold back when she told Tanya how she felt about Nico. “There’s just something about him that rubs me the wrong way. I don’t like the way he talks to you, I don’t like the way he makes you feel,” Sam told Tanya.
