I have to disagree. It is not Richard, but their trashy, ****ty, lard-assed, mother that needs to be blamed. Venus is actually more humble than Serena. Venus takes after her dad and Serena takes after her mom. Their mom is just a fame grabbing, money hungry, ****. I mean look at Serena's fashion sense and outfits, spitting image of what her mother tries to be, a hooker.
