Stacey Dash has become known for her conservative political views on President Obama and race relations in America. But her candor has cost her a relationship with her family.

In an interview with The Edit, Dash admits that a few family members have turned their backs on her because of her political views.

“My cousin Damon [Dash] and my brother were role models to me. Now we’re not really talking because they were the ones who told me to keep my mouth shut,” she said. “They felt that I should do certain things because I’m Black. Certain friends don’t speak to me any more either.”
