Sada's Social Media:


Sada Bettencourt was born on November 1, 1989. She came into the limelight when she was on the show “The Real L Word,” an American reality television series that aired on Showtime on June 20, 2010. The show follows a group of lesbians as they go about their daily lives in Los Angeles. “The Real L Word” ran for three seasons with its final episode centering on Sada’s wedding to her then-partner Whitney Mixter.

After their appearance on “The Real L Word,” the couple then joined the cast of “Couples Therapy,” which aired on VH1 in 2014. Sada and Whitney were cast in the fourth season. The show chronicles reality television performers as they receive relationship counseling from a psychotherapist, Dr. Jenn Mann. After leaving “Couples Therapy,” Sada moved to the Bay Area with Whitney to be closer to her mother who was diagnosed with cancer.

She decided that she would venture into the fitness industry and become a personal trainer. When her mother passed on, however, she went back to Los Angeles and return to the entertainment industry, looking to female wrestling as an option. The pressure of life was too much for the couple so they decided to file for divorce. In December 2018, Sada announced she was carrying her new partner Troy Spino’s child. Since then Bettencourt has appeared in the 2019 series “Cocaine Sisters” and the 2021 movie “Looking for Mr. Right.”
