Vixen Virginity: Rutina Wesley on Her ‘Firsts’

First love

I’m going to go back to puppy love. He lived like down the street from me. He was like five feet and I was taller than him. He was so short. And we always called him “Little Leon.” He’s still a good friend of mine. We were like inseparable. It was so funny to see us together because I was really tall and skinny and he was short. It would be like two peas in a pod. As we grew up, he went one way and I went another, but we always remained friends and until this day, my grandmother still lives there and his mom still lives in the house he grew up in, so I still get to see his mom and family. It’s nice to have that.

First break up 

I was with this really cute boy named Micah and he broke up with me on the bus and everyone made fun of me. I was so embarrassed because he was really cute and I remember thinking like “Oh my god, he actually likes me.” We were only boyfriend and girlfriend for two weeks. I remember everybody just egging him on. I was probably insecure at the time and that didn’t help. I think I cried in front of everyone.

First Spluge

I bought some diamonds. I bought some ice.

First bestie

I have a dear friend named Larrisa. She’s still one of my good friends. We stayed in touch throughout this entire time. We’ve gotten closer over the years. She’s someone that I always know is consistent. She never changes. I depend on her to be who she is and I’m very grateful for her.
