Brittani Louise Taylor’s Early Life
Taylor was born in Minnesota, on August 24, 1983. She has opted to keep most details of her personal life away from the prying eyes of the media. It is known, however, that Brittani has one sibling, a brother named Blake, with whom she grew up in Arizona.
Her father’s name is Robert Taylor and her mother’s name is Barbara Taylor. Her mother memorably appeared on one of her more popular videos which she titled “MOM TAG”.
For her high school education, Brittani enrolled in and graduated from Sedona Red Rock High School. It was here that she started developing the zeal to be an actress. She became active in her high school’s drama and theatre department and appeared in a few school stage productions as well.
Her passion for acting only increased with each passing year but when she finally graduated, she won an art scholarship to Arizona State University to study marketing and business.
Just into her degree, Brittani Louise Taylor dropped out and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her dreaming of becoming an actress. However, things didn’t pan out the way she had hoped. She had tried out at numerous auditions and had only gotten bit-part roles in a few independent movies and television shows. The wannabe actress then decided it was time to plot a recourse.
She forayed into YouTube vlogging in 2009, using the pseudonym Rhonda Anthony Tanner. She didn’t make much headway until she filmed a video with veteran Youtuber, Shane Dawson, that depicted a breakup via email. The video quickly went viral and her popularity followed suit. It was only after this success that she started posting videos under her real name.
