But while this is the case, the Dominican beauty keeps her life interesting on the big screen; she appears on Broadway shows, models for brands, makes waves as a social media influencer, and works as a professional shower singer.
The Afrolatina has also been in the beauty business for a long time and in her interview with All Hip Hop, she revealed some of her beauty tricks, which include fitness and good food. As most people would think, the actress does not train the waist.

As viewers saw the real life of Jose and Budden, the video became more and more popular and people wanted to see more.
From the very first clip, she caught the attention of radio stations and magazines who were interested in who she was. Jose said that at first, she was not ready to respond to calls for photoshoots for King Magazine and that she just wanted to get married and have kids.
