Is Kellita Smith's Net Worth Deserved?

  • Nicholas Montague

    This is totally inaccurate she has done a lot more projects that aren’t mentioned including her current lead starring role in ZNation on SyFy. She’s worth a hell of a lot more than this states but I know these aren’t completely accurate to protect the individuals privacy which I 100% support.
