Karrueche Tran is living the good life, and considering all of the slander she’s received over the years, I’m glad to see it. The 29-year-old has often been spoken of in connection with her ex, and when she and Chris Brown split, his fans ran with the story that he “made her.” But since leaving that relationship, Tran has made moves that no one saw coming.
She won an Emmy for Outstanding Digital Daytime Drama for her production work on the web series, The Bay. She’s now the star of a hit show, has a new and exciting love interest and as we previously mentioned, that booty is sitting up high thanks to her new fitness regimen. What more could a girl ask for?
Check out all of the ways Tran has been living her best life in the year 2017. Sorry Chris (and her haters).
That Time She Got a Starring Role on Claws
Tran plays Virginia, a former prostitute who after working in Desna’s (Niecy Nash) shop, ends up shaking things up big time — and even saves Desna’s life. The series, which is quite entertaining actually, has just been approved for a second season on TNT.

Tran proved earlier this year that with enough hard (leg) work and (squatting) dedication in the gym, you can take your booty to new places.

That Time She Dated Quavo
We’re not sure if they’re still an item (she’s kept this romance under wraps for the most time), but we’re here for Tran having fun with the Migos rapper — even if it did create some drama between the rap group and her ex, Chris Brown.
That Time She Lived Large and Carefree
Chilling on the beach with your girlfriends and a fat burger? Bliss.
Did We Mention She’s Flawless?
Haters be damned! The girl is a beauty — and she’s a success. Get over it.
