Imagine growing up bi-racial in a small Georgia town, the daughter of divorced parents, a Scottish/Irish father, and a Japanese mother.

Kelly Nishimoto, self-taught, Los Angeles-based fashion designer, lifestyle pimp, and creator of Cutebootylounge, designed a wedding dress out of trash bags and electrical tape at 13, and eventually launched a full collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

But what would you do if a series of events led to you being offered a job on television, getting pregnant, and being without a home -- all at the same time?
