Issa Rae has proved time and time again that doing anything in formal tradition is just not her cup of tea. The multi-hyphenate actress, producer, and writer has managed to achieve what few mega-stars have attempted to do: keep her personal life a tightly guarded secret.

C) Then I took a few flicks with Somebody’s Husband.” It’s not everyday a bride orders grillz for her wedding day.

Stating, Rae walked into his West Coast location to order her grillz. Requesting platinum fangs with inset diamonds — and only the best quality diamonds would suffice. Scotty said he had no idea who she was until after she placed her order and left. To be sure nothing went wrong with this special order Scotty, made a backup piece just in case he ran into any problems or if the first one didn’t fit, he also hand delivered them personally to Rae in France. For this, Rae gave Scotty the ultimate review-See below.
