The young woman’s rise to cyberstardom was launched by onlooker @YourFavoriteZoe, whose theory gave the Laneé a second identity.

Playing coy at first, she denied seeing any similarities between herself and the TV star: “At first, I was like, ‘Omg! What are you all looking at?'” Laneé said in an interview with Buzzfeed.
“However, the more I analyzed the picture, the more I started to see the resemblance,” she added. “I believe it’s my eyes and my cheekbones, honestly.”

Laneé has decided to own it, calling herself “Motor City Oprah” online, paying homage to her home city while squashing any stripper speculation.
