Jasmine has been opening up a lot with her social media followers over the past few months and it seems people’s perceptions of her are starting to change. Initially, she got a lot of backlash from viewers for her explosive behavior and her jealous fits of rage throughout her relationship with Gino Palazzolo.

She has also opened up quite a bit about her life before her stint on the show and most recently she dished about an ongoing health condition.
