Keyshia Cole’s Family Returns to the Small Screen in New Reality Show (VIDEO)
Just when you thought it was over, Keyshia Cole’s family proves they still have what it takes to make dramatic reality TV.
It looks like Keyshia’s mother, Frankie Lons, whom we met during Keyshia’s family-centered reality show, Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is, is trying her hand yet again at reality TV and this time, it’s getting serious.
The new show, Family Therapy, aims to bring together seven siblings — all of Frankie’s estranged children, minus Keyshia — together in one house for a living experiment, punctuated with group and private therapy sessions for the cast members involved.
In the trailer, we meet Frankie’s kids which includes 38-year-old Neffeteria, aka Neffe, who we first saw on Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is and the subsequent spin-off, Frankie and Neffe. We also meet Neffe’s siblings Elite, Robert, Latifia, and Sam. Each child has seen their fair share of problems stemming mostly from their mother’s addiction habits and unstable upbringing.
“At 12 years old I was fist fighting women 30 years old. Mom was on the ho stroll and Dad was in the crackhouse,” Neffe explains, while Elite reveals she was rescued at 3 months ago by one of her mother’s sex clients. Robert unveils his life almost came to an end at infancy as he was born with cocaine in his system. “I almost didn’t make it to see a first birthday,” he says.
From the promo alone, we can tell that this show is going to be filled to the brim with drama — and Keyshia will be nowhere near it. In 2010, Keyshia told fans that she was not in communication with her family over the dirty laundry her mother aired on the spin-off show, and as recently as March 2014, Keyshia admitted to maintaining her distance from her biological family as to protect her young son, Daniel Jr., from “that kind of chaos.”
As it stands, Family Therapy hasn’t been picked up by any network, and there’s no word on whether or not the show will instead become an online series. As for us, we really do hope that this time around, Frankie will put this newest reality TV adventure to good use and finally get the help and closure she and her family seem to need.
