Alma Rivera

Alma Rivera says that, when she was born, she was so pale she was called “Casper” (after the cartoon ghost), and when she was a teenager, she was so skinny she was called Olive Oyl (after Popeye’s girlfriend). Now that she’s approaching fifty, she’s more like a woman in a Botticelli painting. She lives in Astoria, New York.
