  1. Kellie is not a radiologist. that requires 4 years of college, 4 years of med school and three years of radiology residency to become a radiologist.
    She, with an associates degree, is a radiologic technologist.
    I should know as I worked for 40 years in the field of radiology.

  2. Agreed…. please retract or modify the statement about Kelly being a radiologist. As Veronica noted, that takes several years of school – Kelly was a radiology tech. PS… there may be more to this story over time. She maybe proven to be more than you see….

  3. You need to include her legal issues of tax evasion now. As of tonight, it’s all over the news. As well as the fact that she needed a 100 k bmw to drive around to sell mid range homes. Didn’t want to be honest, registered it in FL. Disgusted. I grew up in Eau Claire WI, and am just a year younger than her. All kids got bullied in school back then. The excuse, look / talk different. So did a lot of white kids. So tired of people playing the victim.
