“I’ve had amazing best friends that I’ve had since I was a little girl. Sisters to this day. They’re going to do their best to ask questions and investigate. And they’re going to tell it like it is. I want to see the outcome, how’s he going to do. What are they going to say?” Raven said about her friends.
Raven’s friends Aliyah and Macole didn’t disappoint, grilling SK with pointed questions about his love and marriage plans with Raven.
“Do you think she’s the one?” Aliyah asked right from the get-go. After SK gave an adequate and thoughtful response to the question, something Bartise Bowden completely failed to do when Nancy’s brothers asked him a similar question, Macole questioned if SK was really her type.
“I just think that when I picture Raven’s ideal man, I thought you were maybe going to be taller, and like athletic on that sense. I did not get Nigerian vibes at all,” Macole bluntly said.
“I’ve heard that Nigerian culture is super traditional. They usually marry Nigerian women… If you’re expecting eight meals and all your clothes to be folded up [it’s not going to happen]. She’s a career-driven woman. She probably won’t be home by the time you get home,” Aliyah added, being real with SK.
Fans were impressed how much her friends grilled SK and were looking out for their close friend. So who are Raven’s friends Aliyah and Macole, her ride or dies?
Meet Love Is Blind Star Raven’s Friends Aliyah And Macole
Raven’s life-long friend Aliyah is a 28 year-old GM of a fitness club in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. She celebrated her birthday on October 27, the same day as Raven’s co-star and new good friend Colleen Reed. (Perhaps they both partied until 2:30 a.m. at the club like Colleen did on the show that freaked out her fiancé Matt Bolton.)
Raven’s other best friend is Macole Moody. She’s an entrepreneur and licensed esthetician who owns her own skin care and yoga business, Skin Sculpt Spa, based in Chicago. Macole’s Instagram shows she’s also into wearing designer clothes, staying fit, and building her empire.
Macole celebrated her 27th birthday back in February.
It looks like Raven’s friends are pretty similar to her. They’re all career-driven and fitness conscious.
Despite Aliyah and Macole’s reservations about Raven getting married to SK and starting a two-year long-distance relationship, the couple do make it to the altar in the latest previews. We’ll likely be seeing more of Raven’s two besties on her wedding day. We’ll have to wait and see if Raven and SK end up saying “I do”, or whether or not Macole and Aliyah still object.
