HI! I was googling around as I usually do for great info on the huge and small bits of information out there and was searching about the Wayans... I came across Elvira Wayans as being the mother of Damien most often and only one reference as Nadia being the mother... do you happen to know for sure which is correct?
In the grand scheme of things, for me, doesn't really matter, except inquiring minds wanna know! lol :)
