Keyshia Cole's Sister Neffe

Keyshia Cole’s Sister Neffe Has Had Enough of the Tequila Jokes

Keyshia Cole is on the cover of Sister 2 Sister’s October issue.

Keyshia Cole Sister 2 Sister

She’ll no doubt get the patented Jamie Brown lengthy, chit chat style interview.

It’s going to be a family affair; in a leaked excerpt Keyshia Cole’s sister Neffe is also quoted. She’s sick and tired of the funny little names people have taken to calling her on the web and apparently on the California streets.

It’s one reason why she has moved in with Keyshia Cole.

Is that an old story being retold?

Not sure. It sounds like you’d find her answering the door if you rang Keyshia’s doorbell.

Maybe with a glass of the tough stuff. smile

  • Jamie: Did Keyshia call you up and invite you to come over? How did it happen [that you moved in with her]?
  • Neffe: No, actually my mom had came to visit and I had just left my husband because I had recently found out that he had been sleeping with my first cousin for a year.
  • Jamie: What?!
  • Neffe: I was a little resentful about moving because I’ve been in California for so long and I didn’t want to come and be dependent on my sister. That’s just not me. But I needed to make that move because I was on the verge of having a breakdown. ... Everyone was thinking, oh she’s drunk, oh she’s an alcoholic. Not knowing that behind the scenes I was actually going through something.
  • Jamie: I’m sure they knew you were going through something.
  • Neffe:I don’t think they did. Like when I’m out in the public and they go, “‘There’s Keyshia Cole’s sister,” or “You’re the crazy one. You have a shot of Patron today?” Who wants to hear that?

KESHIA, WHY ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR MOTHERS LIFE ON TV FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. SOME FAMILY PROBLEMS ARE TO BE KEPT SECRET. I FEEL BAD FOR YOUR MOTHER.

4 Mone Mon, Nov 05, 2007 - 4:23 pm

I do not see a problem with Keyshia putting her family’s business on television especially her mother’s business. This can help other families who are in the same situation relate and learn ways to deal with the family issues and move on.  Keep up the good work Keyshia.

Love You
Mone

5 CHIEF 00 Mon, Nov 05, 2007 - 4:35 pm

I’M SURE THAT THERE ARE OTHER WAYS THAT WE CAN COPE WITH OUR FAMILY PROBLEMS THAN TO EMBARRASS OUR FAMILY MEMBERS. SHE PUTS HER MOTHER ON TV AND EVERYONE WILL LOOK AT HER MOTHER AS A CRACK HEAD FOR LIFE. HER MOM DOISEN’TNEED THAT. WOULD YOU WANT YOUR MOTHER TO BE KNOWN AS A CRACK HEAD?

6 WanWan Wed, Nov 07, 2007 - 6:51 am

The problems that Keyshia went through needs to be told because there are many families going through the same situation. There is no need for people to hide situations and act like their life is perfect. Evidently, Keyshia her mother or Neffe has no problem with telling their story because they know that maybe they can prevent it from happening to other families. Keep Up The Good Work Keyshia.

7 CHIEF 00 Wed, Nov 07, 2007 - 7:39 am

WANWAN, THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TELLING YOUR STORY THAN PUTTING YOUR MOTHER, WHO IS OBVIOUSLY A DRUG ADDICT , ON TV FOR THE WORLD TO SEE. THEY ALSO CONTINUOUSLY CURSE HER OUT AND DISRESPECT HER. YOU CAN TELL THE STORY WITHOUT EMBARASSING YOUR MOTHER. WHITE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT THIS AND GENERALIZING ALL OF US LIKE THIS. AS A RACE WE REALLY NEED TO WAKE UP!!! WOULD YOU WANT YOUR MOTHER KNOWN AS A CRACK HEAD FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE? I DON’TMEAN THAT IN A DISRESPECTFUL WAY, I AM JUST ASKING.

8 Sharlene Thu, Nov 08, 2007 - 1:50 pm

Who the f**k cares about white people keyshia is handling her buis her mom should accept what keyshia doing i love you keyshia i wish i grow up to be like you

10 CHIEF 00 Mon, Nov 12, 2007 - 1:12 am

SHARLENE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO CARE ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE. WE NEED TO START CARING ABOUT OURSELVES. TO THROW YOUR MOTHER OUT THERE LIKE THAT IS F*CKED UP. I HOPE YOU WOULD NOT DO THAT TO YOUR MOMS. TO SAY THAT HER MOTHER SHOULD ACCEPT THAT IS NUTS. WHY BECAUSE KESHIA HAS MONEY? FAMILY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MONEY. YES, KESHIA IS TALLENTED BUT USE YOUR TALLENTS TO HELP NOT MAKE MONEY AT ANYONES EXPENSE.

11 Pharrell Junior. Mon, Nov 12, 2007 - 7:51 pm

Neffe Just keep doin ya thang babygirl God is gonna bless you through-out all your troubles deep down you are a good person I can see it in you, but pretty soon we’ll get to meet in person and I know you have a good spirit deep down.

13 Sunshyne Tue, Dec 11, 2007 - 9:54 pm

how old is keyshia cole’s mom?

14 Ms. T Tue, Dec 11, 2007 - 9:59 pm

I congratulate what Keyshia is trying to do for her mom and sis. It just appears from what is presented on the screen like they are taking advantage of her. She has rearranged her life to take care of 2 adults that cant take care of themselves and they continually cause drama for her and the selves. She did not have to do that. While she is trying to help her family, i hope her family does not hurt her loving and caring spirit. They are prime examples of why people get rich and famous and walk away from their family.

15 Ms.Cocoa Thu, Dec 13, 2007 - 4:29 pm

I think Keyshia Cole and her family are just like other black families in america. They have or are going through the same problems that are faced each and everyday in african american households. It’s just that their family problems are televised for the world to see but, I think that it is beautiful so that other families can know how to deal with certain situations or problems, it is also helping others not to be embarass of their family or where they come from. Telling your testimony to the entire world is a blessing in disguise for everyone who comes across it.

16 Concerned Black Man Thu, Dec 13, 2007 - 5:25 pm

This show is good for TV and bad for how it makes black people look. This in no way is a blessing in disguise. This is no better than the Jerry Springer show. So sad to see us giving this show props.

17 To Understand You Have To Walk in Her Shoes- Fri, Fri, Dec 14, 2007 - 8:39 am

I am sorry but I enjoyed the show.  She is just keeping it real.  That is how some family’s are and she just wanted you to know that she no different from the rest. She goes through the same others may go through.  Because she has money and she is Keyshia Cole it doesn’t change the fact of her being hurt growing up and if she chooses to put it on television for the world to see then so be it.  Neffe and Frankie had a choice as well they did not have to agree to doing the show, but I am very happy they did.  I did not look down on them.  Many of my co-workers feel the same way.  This is the first reality show we felt was real and we can relate.  Thank you Keyshia, I appreciate it.  Keep your head up because no matter what GOD is always with you.  Thank you again.

18 CBM Fri, Dec 14, 2007 - 8:51 am

I understand the show without walking in her shoes. This is a pathetic and ghetto show. Her family secrets need to be left in the closet. This is another example of when “keeping it real” has gone bad. But for some reason we black people act like they have nothing better our their lives then to degrade ourselves. Why can’t we keep it real and show something positive. She is too tallented to continue this stupid show.

19 Walking in Her Shoes Fri, Dec 14, 2007 - 9:29 am

It so pathetic and ghetto that I am sure you watched it in its entirety.  No matter how pathetic or ghetto you think it is it is your choice to watch or not.  Do realize that some people enjoy it because it may make them feel like wow and I thought I was going through something.  The fact that Keyshia was trying to help her family because we have lost unity does not make it ghetto. You can tell that Neffe has tried hard to make a change in her life.  You may not like the way they went about putting the show together, but again, it’s real.  Why do we have to constantly place things in the closet, that is the problem now.  We need to face the issues at hand because then only then can we move on with our lives.  To me, it shows that no matter what Keyshia has gone through she persevered.  If you want to speak about being degraded.  Slavery was degrading, but it did not stop Alex Haley from writing a book about it and placing it on television so that you can see what our ancestors have gone through.

20 CBM Fri, Dec 14, 2007 - 10:21 am

I didn’t watch that garbage at all. I can’t bring myself to do that. People enjoy this show because it reminds them of the Jerry Springer show. The fact that she is helping her family is very good but all the ghetto acting can be left in the streets not for the world to see. Don’t they know that they are on TV? There is a certain way that you carry yourself when the world is watching. Family issues can be handled in private. But I guess that if the price is right some will do anything for the money including embarassing themselves and their family. You have to be kidding me when you try to campare Alex Haileys ROOTS with this hot ghetto mess. This is exactly what I am talking about when I say that we act like we have nothing better. You compared slavery, which is what our ancestors went through to that ghetto ass show. That was a low blow. How depressing.

21 Ms. Cocoa Sat, Dec 15, 2007 - 2:48 am

I don’t understand why people think Keyshia’s show put black folks down, her show didn’t portray that at all, she’s just letting everyone know she just like you an I, you either love it or it. She can’t hide the fact where she comes from and she shouldn’t be ashame, she has a big heart, and I love her show.

22 ms.keedy Mon, Dec 17, 2007 - 2:51 pm

Neffe u need get ur life back on track and leave
that man alone.

23 To Ms. Cocoa Mon, Dec 31, 2007 - 4:45 pm

If that show dosen’t remind you of a ghetto version of the Jerry Springer show I don’t know what to tell you. Some family issues need to be just that…FAMILY ISSUES!! The world dosen’t need to know every little thing that is wrong with your family. Some things we do need to be ashamed of. I agree that she has a big heart and is very attractive and tallented but she is using her family as ginny pigs and that is just f**ked up. We as black people need to rise above this ghetto mentallity. I’m sure she makes enough money making hits and doing concerts so why does she have to exploit her family for more money. But as long as SOME of us like what she is doing she might as well just keep throwing her family under the bus.

24 Ms. Angel (12 years old) Mon, Dec 31, 2007 - 7:14 pm

Neffe u have been through so much and i know how u feel because i have went through the same exact thing u went through and i am still going through it and my dad died last year and we were more close to anybody on this earth except for my mom. and everything is gonna be okay all u can do is pray to god.

And just take care of your 3 daughters and your mom.

And dont stress your self out over Clyde because he aint do nothing but break your heart but u can love him and if u want to get back with him just sit and talk with him.

but other than that just try to be happy and everything will be okay

I Love u and i wish the best for you.

25 Tina Wed, Jan 02, 2008 - 12:18 pm

WOW! You people take crabs in a barrel to another level. It is no wonder African American people can’t move forward. We are too busy pulling each other down. Regardless of what you think, you should be supportive and say something positive. Why the need to call people names. God made each of us in His image and likeness, just the way He wanted us to be. To call someone ugly is calling God ugly. But I doubt you would even understand that. There is nothing wrong with Keyshia’s show and if you don’t like it that’s your perogative. You don’t have to watch it. But why do you have degrade her, judge her and talk about her and her family? I mean, who made you God and the judge of all mankind. I’m quite sure you all have issues of your own and wouldn’t like it if you were judged. If Frankie is known as a “crack addict” for life, there is nothing wrong with that, because that is what she is. Once an addict always an addict. She is in recovery and her past should not define what her present and future would be. As a people, let’s stop judging and start loving. We will never accomplish anything, because we are too busy pulling each other down. I know I can definitely relate and I love the show. If some of you don’t that’s fine. But don’t knock it or others. There are things in your life, choices you made that I’m sure people don’t agree with and I’m sure you wouldn’t want to be judged for them. Let’s just start loving and praying for each other. God is the ONLY ONE WHO CAN JUDGE!! Be blessed.

26 To Tina Wed, Jan 02, 2008 - 10:03 pm

To call someone ugly is not to call god ugly lets get serious. However some of the things that you say I do agree with. You are saying that we shouldn’t put each other down, what is she doing to her sister and her mother by broadcasting their problems for the world to see? She is putting them down. Why do people have to degrade her? Why is she degrading her family? You are right when you say that we have issues of our own but family issues should be left behind closed doors not broadcast to make your family look stupid! If any one is known as a crack addict there is something wrong with that You’re wrong there. I agree with you when you say that as a people we need to start loving each other but do you call what she is doing to her family love? Just like you say we need to start saying positive things and uplifting each other she should think about doing the same for her family. Some of us like it and some of us don’t but I just wish she would think about her family instead of the money she is making for the show.

27 Tina Thu, Jan 03, 2008 - 5:15 pm

Don’t know who sent the above comment because there is no name attached, but as a Christian I believe in the Bible where it states we are made in the image and likeness of God. So if I am made in His image and you call me ugly, what are you saying about Him? That’s neither here nor there and based soley on my opinion, which I am entitled to. I do agree on some level that people might view Keyshia as putting down her mother and sister, but if they (Neffe and Frankie) felt that way I’m sure they would not have agreed to do the show. I read one of the bloggers say that she was thankful for hearing their story, especially since she’s gone through (and continue to go through) the same thing at 16 years old. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with two Master Degrees and 16 years of experience in the field. My professional opinion is that it is okay to be positively identified as a crack addict, because that IS what she IS. She is simply in recovery. That knowledge will keep her humble and hopefully remind her of where she should never return. Remember the episode where she spoke to other women in her situation and was helpful. If she was ashamed of who she was and where she came from or kept it secret, whe would have NEVER been able to help those ladies (especially the one who was crying and really felt a personal connection). I should hope that if she felt degraded by the show or any of their actions, she would have enough love and respect for herself to say I don’t want to do this. I don’t really think money was the BIG issue for Keyshia. She is not hurting in that department. I truly feel she was trying to show where she came from and hopefully give people hope and encouragement that if she could do it, then so can anyone. We are all entitled to our opinions. That is what makes us unique individuals. All I was really trying to say is that we should respect other’s choices to do what they want with their lives. We can’t control people and we can’t expect them to live by our standards and believe in what we believe in. And that being said, we should NOT judge anyone who think, behave, etc. differently than what we would do or expect in life. I appreciate your comments and I really hope that we all could learn to love more in 2008 and stop being so fast to put each other down. One final note: maybe (or even hopefully) when they see the show, they might say, “why did I act like that” or maybe even feel like they were degraded or degraded someone else. They might even take a closer look in the mirror and decide they need to change. I personally don’t think they were degraded, but again, that subjective and my opinion only. I did read an interview that Neffe had with Sister 2 Sister magazine and she wanted people to know that she is not the person portrayed on the show. She was just going through a really tough time during the taping. Maybe things would be different in the next season. Who knows? Continue to be blessed and highly favored in the Lord.

28 To Tina Mon, Jan 07, 2008 - 11:49 pm

You are asking if I called you ugly what am I saying about god? I am not saying anything about god i would be just calling you ugly… I don’t even know you so that would never happen. You said that if Keshia’s sister and mother felt like they were getting put down they wouldn’t have agreed to the show, that is not true because they dont have the money that she has so they have to go with the flow that is the way that it works in the real world. I respectfuly have to say that because you are a social worker that you don’t know what goes on in the hood you are taught by a book we are taught by real life situations and my street opinion is nobody wants to be known as a crack addict respectfully or disrespectfully. money is not an issue for Keshia but everyone knows that people with money always want more and more. That is the business of having it. Here is a question if Neffe didn’t feel degraded why did she feel that she had to let people know that she wasn’t the person that was on the show? I hear and understand what you are saying but what Keshia and her family should have done was get in contact with a person of your stature instead of embarassing her family. We need to uplift our people instead of stepping on them when they are down, even if it is for good money…..

29 Tina Thu, Jan 10, 2008 - 1:18 pm

Well, I must say that you have no idea what you are talking about and it seems that you are making statements, opinions and judgements without really knowing the facts. I would venture to guess that you don’t know Neffie, Frankie or Keyshia personally, so you don’t know if they had to “go with the flow”. That’s just an assumption and you know what they say about assumptions? You also have no personal knowledge about me and again made off the wall statements about my “book knowledge”. I not only know what I am talking about professionally, but personally as well. Nothing was given to me and it wasn’t easy. I worked my ASS off to acquire ALL that I have. Just because I am a professional don’t mean I’m not street smart. My mother was addicted to crack cocaine, my father heroin and in prison for 20 years of my life, my sister is an alcoholic and several of my other siblings use both drugs and alcohol, as well as cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents. Oh and did I tell you that my husband with whom I am separated from is also addicted to crack and alcohol? So don’t preach to me about what I know and don’t know. AGAIN, we can’t sit in our seat of judgement because we simply don’t know where people come from and what they have gone through, or better yet still going through. Although I was molested and endured very hard times in my childhood, I was determined to get away from the hood mentality. I don’t look down on anyone and I don’t judge them or their actions. I still live in my neighborhood and are still friends with “street” people as you call it. I know many addicts personally and professionally and they ALL say that they are addicts for life. That is what keeps them humble. Secrets and not acknowledging who you are is what get you in trouble; leading back down that wrong path. The bottom line here is that it is not our place to judge and tell people what they should and shold not do. According to who, You? I can’t tell you how to live your life and you can’t tell me or anyone else how to live theirs. People respond better to positive criticism, you know the constructive kind, not the destructive kind. Let’s build one another up. We should be more supportive as a people, that’s all I’m really trying to say. If everyone felt that Neffie, Frankie and Keyshia was doing something wrong, the best way to get them to respond is with positive advice, suggestions, etc. Not name calling and negattive judgments. Finally, I wasn’t saying that you were calling me ugly or that you were saying anything about God, it was a parable, a way to get my point across. Guess that flew over your head! I don’t know why Neffie felt like she had to clear to air. I can’t and won’t speak for her, but would assume it was because of the negative blogs that you all are writing about her, instead of just supporting or being positive. I use to hear as a child, if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. Lastly, why don’t you document your name or at least your sex? Don’t really know who I’m communicating with. Continue to be blessed my brother or sister. I will continue to keep you and my people in prayer. It’s always good to share difference of opinions in a repectable way. Love ya.

30 To Tina Wed, Jan 16, 2008 - 10:49 pm

First, I am a man and next I must say that BET keeps putting us on TV to degrade ourselves and our own race keeps agreeing with it. Even “Social Workers” like to see our race go further and further into the toilet. What a shame. I wouldn’t have to know Keshia or her family personally they put their business out there to be criticized and our race thinks that her belittling her family is what we need to see. I’ll say it again nobody needs to be known as a former crack head or a present crack head. Who would hire them for a job? All that crap about being a recovering crack addict is bull. You either recover or you don’t. If you break a leg you don’t recover forever you just recover that’s it! You talk about uplifting our race, you don’t uplift by throwing your family on TV to act ghetto for a buck even if you as a “Social Worker” thinks that it is right. The fact that you think that it is right makes me never want to see a social worker again. Not that I ever did. Bottom line is Keshia you are making your sister and mother look like asses. Stop this show. BET Sucks for continuing to degrade our race.

31 Shunnie Thu, Jan 17, 2008 - 10:50 pm

CAN WE ALL JUS GET ALONG

32 Tina Fri, Jan 18, 2008 - 11:18 am

You are sooooo judgemental. I guess ignorance really is bliss. You feel how you feel. Why do I have to be wrong because I don’t agree with you? We are all entitled to our beliefs, opinions and feelings. To argue with a fool just proves there are two, so I won’t continue this asinine discussion.  Be blessed.

33 To Tina Sun, Jan 20, 2008 - 2:02 pm

There is nothing wrong with being judgemental. There is so much wrong in our race that someone needs to stand up and say something and I choose it to be me. What kills me is that the minute someone goes to college and think that they know everything when that isn’t the case. Keshia is embarrasing her sister and mother and that is the bottom line. We need to clean up our race and stop degrading ourselves and that includes our “Social Workers”

34 DI@MOND PRINCESS Sat, Feb 02, 2008 - 11:34 pm

First of all I would like 2 say u people that r saying she should’nt of put her business on t.v. if u don’t like it changed the channel duh!!!! and it’s people that have been threw the same thing so she aspiring other people and there family so stop hatin cause she got money and u don’t.

35 To the comment above Sun, Feb 03, 2008 - 4:14 pm

It takes a ignorant nigga to think that it ok to degrade your family. It is really sad that some of us can’t open ur eyes and help to uplift our race instead of this type of shit. Lets start to think people.

36 Divonnie Powell Thu, Mar 20, 2008 - 9:24 am

i know u been through a lot but keep your head u and don’t give up u are going to get throuh it.

37 Kiki Harding Thu, Mar 20, 2008 - 11:23 pm

Keyshia i give my props to you, for being there for your family. Neffie we all go through some things in life, so i’m not here to judge you. I just want you to forgive your mother, and put it behind you, because life is to short. Enjoy your family while you can, cause tomorrow is not promise to nobody. I you need someone to talk to please feel free to email me @ kiaharding.com

38 Lady C Sun, Mar 23, 2008 - 12:59 am

Keyshia cole is truly an angel sent by God.She gave hope to people like me who has had a parent on drugs and didn’t have it easy growing up. She showed that everybody makes mistakes and that if we all just try to forgive one another, and pray for one another, everything can be o.k. Whether Neffe and Frankie knows it or not, they are also an inspiration. The both of them show strength, and the courage to change the mistakes you’ve made in the past.So neffe, there may be people out there who talk shit about you, but there is also people out there that you ALL are inspiring.So keep going and never lose the faith.Thank you Frankie for showing people that know matter what you’ve done in the past, God is there to help you turn your life around. And thank you Frankie for having Neffe and Keyshia because they really are heaven sent. Shot out to the cole family for raising Keyahia. May God bless you all.

39 Mrs. M Mon, Mar 24, 2008 - 12:16 am

YOU KNOW WHAT,I BELIEVE THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING. LIFE TO ME IS LIKE A MOVIE. GOD IS SITTING ON HIS THROWN AND WATCHING US. IT LIKE WE ARE CHARACTERS AND IT IS ONLY GOD WHO KNOWS THE ENDING. WHICH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT KESHIA SHOW WAS A PURPOSE. SO MANY AFRICAN AMERICAN KIDS ARE GROWING UP IN A BROKEN HOMES. TO SEE KESHIA SO STRONG AND HUMBLE, HELPS KIDS KNOW THERE IS BEAUTY AT THE END OF A DARK, ABUSIVE AND HARD LIFE. SO IF KESHIA COLE EVER ENDS UP READING THIS I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU.

40 J-Shock Mon, Mar 24, 2008 - 4:02 pm

There IS areason to do this… It’s to make money at your family members expense. Tell her to do the show for FREE and see how fast she would cancel the show.

41 to cheif 00 Sat, Mar 29, 2008 - 9:15 pm

we dont only have to worry about the white people judging us we have to worry about black people like your self too. if her and her family arent embarrased why should you be!!!

42 CHIEF 00 Sat, Mar 29, 2008 - 10:07 pm

TO ANSWER THE POST ABOVE ON WHY I AM EMBARRASSED THAT IS BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS TO BE EMBARRASSED ABOUT ALL THE STUPID SHIT THAT OUR RACE DOES. AS HAS BEEN STATED BEFORE SOME PEOPLE WILL DO ANYTHING FOR MONNEY EVEN IF WE HAVE IT ALREADY. TOO MANY OF US CONDONE THIS TYPE OF SHIT INSTEAD OF PUTTING IT DOWN AND THEN WE WONDER WHY WE ARE THE JOKE OF EVERY OTHER RACE.

Why aren’t you in school getting some english lessons? Most of the people that like what Keshia is doing to her family talk in sentences just like you dummy. So you idiots like to see our race put each other down because that is all you uneducated people know.

49 Bossy Tee Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 11:17 am

HATERS! Stop hating, why hide the real? It may help someone in or out! I love and respect Keyshia Cole & fam! Continue 2 keep it real Keyshia! A true FAN Bossy Tee out of DC!!!

I love and respect keyhia cole for helping her mother,but her mother acts like keyshia got hooked on drugs and left her,it seems to me that frankie is taking advantage of her and is not even trying at all to take care of herself i really dont like the lady because she seems to be using her and she seems lazy but i respect her for getting clean,NEFFE i love her ,she’s independent and strong and she’s real. keep up the good work baby girl i know you’ll make it own your own .because that’s what you want .love you keyshia and your crazy family

Wow. Some of these comments are quite interesting. However, the name of her show is “The Way It Is”. Since she’s filming live she has no idea what may or may not transpire. Frankie and Nefee can opt out at any time. Keyshia is not exposing her family she exposing herself. Her theme song says “I’m just like you”. Keyshia is just a real sister. Not trying to pretend to be someone she’s not. She wants to stay grounded. She just sharing with the world the true way it is. Most kids and some adults want to believe that these super stars and born with silver spoons in their mouths. Keyshia is just being real about it and saying this is the way it really is. Look at the positive that’s going on, on the show. Neffe and Frankie speaking with the women’s group. The family going to therapy. Keyshia trying to give her family a fresh start. Them painting the room together. Sure Frankie has a problem and the world see it. There are so many more super stars whose parents molested them and some have even died from drug use but, they don’t want the world to know that side of them. That subject is taboo to the world because they are so afraid the world won’t look up to them. Many of them are just as addicted as Frankie but hide behind their music, and are living in pure hell behind the scenes. Keyshia is just simply being real. I think as black people we worry to much about what the next man thinks. What about what God knows? Shame on us. I think that Keyshia is trying hard to start over and trying to give her family another chance. Whether or not they accept this opportunity is totally up to them. Neffe is trying to move forward but there is so much drama. Until Frankie learns to deal with her issues more tactfully she’ll always be a screamer and tell people how she really feels. She just hasn’t learned to express herself is a nicer way. I’ll just continue to pray for Keyshia Cole and her family. There is a lot of love there. It’s just that no one knows how to express it because there has also been so much resentment and to be honest Frankie’s kids are still very angry with her. She must know that it takes time for wounds to heal. In the meantime, Frankie needs to be in a halfway house. She was put out in the world too soon after being released from prison. She’ll be back in prison real soon at the rate she’s going.

Wow. Just because this show is entertaining for some of us we tend to forget that this is embrrasing bafoonery. I like to hear people say that we as black people care too much about what other people think. The real problem is that too many of us don’t care what other people think that is why we have rappers that look, sound and act the way they do. That is why we have shows like Flavor of Love, Chance at Love, and a host of other hot ghetto messes. That is why we have women sucking d*cks and writing books about it because too many of us don’t care about what other people think. Keshia is embarrasing her family and her sister and mother really DO NOT have the option to get out of that show because the show probably pays their bills. On the other hand Keshia who is more than likely set up pretty good with money is the one that can stop this show.

53 dee Thu, Nov 13, 2008 - 8:05 pm

I just wonder how the hell is Keyshia so normal. Because her sister and mother are an embarrassment. i no nobody is perfect, but you don’t have to be so damn embarrassing either.

54 Jay Thu, Nov 13, 2008 - 11:36 pm

Keyshia is sane because she is the one that has something to lose if she acts like her sister and mother. Keyshia knows how her family acts and yet she is using their stupid acts for her own gain to make money off of them. How trifling is that?

55 Nicole Fri, Nov 14, 2008 - 2:07 am

I think we forget Neffe and Frankie are two grown ass women.  Whether the camera are there or not, it is what it is…real.  Frankie is a recovering addict with crackhead tendencies…she still acts as if shes actively using.  And after all that has been given to her and her family, if that’s what she feels she has to offer the world, that’s on Frankie…

56 Jay Fri, Nov 14, 2008 - 2:38 am

Nicole
Everything you stated is true but in a family that cares about one another we should not be putting our family members out there to be exposed as Keyshia is doing. True indeed Neffe and Frankie are grown but when certain amounts of money are thrown your way when you don’t have it you have to take it and that is where I think Neffe and Frankie are right now trapped in the money. Grown people need money too…

57 LEMON1 Wed, Nov 26, 2008 - 5:00 pm

MY HEART GOES OUT TO KEYSHIA CAUSE SHE CAN’T HELP EVERY BODY. SHE CAN’T GET HER MOM OF DRUGS NEFFE IS ONLY TRYING TO SAVE HER MOM LIFE NEFFE IS A GOOD GIRL SHE ONLY WHAT BEST FOR HER MOM THAT’S ALL SO PLEASE LEAVE NEFFE A LOVE CAUSE FRANKIE DOING A GOOD JOB FOR HERSELF ONE WEEK SHE HATE KEYSHIA FORSET MOM THEN THE NEXT WEEK SHE LOVE HER.

62 Rel Mon, Jan 05, 2009 - 10:31 pm

Does everyone see what kind of people shows like this draw? Read the last two post and you can figure this out. For all the people that are saying this show is a good thing look at the ignorance in the last two post and this will show you how good this ghetto ass show is for our commuity.

63 Aja Thu, Jan 15, 2009 - 6:53 am

Wow!!!! I am shocked by all the negative comments on this page. First of all, why does it have to be about money? True enough that motivates, but I’m sure that was not the only reason for doing this show. Everything in life impacts people in different ways. You never know who this show could be helping. I’m sure doing this has made everyone involved better people because they can go back & see their mistakes and grow from them. And the person who commented about the type of people this show attracks clearly has a sterotype issue because any ignorant comments made were made by people that were ignorant long before this show was ever thought about. I didn’t realize so much ignorance existed…wowwww!!! I just believe any choices a person makes for their life is a choice that they will either suffer the consequences of or reap the benefits. In any case the bottom line is if you don’t like the show don’t watch it!!! And I’m quite sure that all the people talking about Neffee being ugly are far much worse off. Neffee is a beautiful person regardless of her choices. She made the best of the hand she was dealt with as did all of the family and I think she is well on her way up. And the spot light comments sounds like a bunch of haters don’t you wish someone was shinning the spotlight on yo a**!!!. Anyway, I just want to leave this with you all…“Are you serious????!!!!”
LIVE UR LIFE!!!

64 Ghostface Superior Sun, Jan 25, 2009 - 4:33 pm

Sharlene (ghetto-ass name if there ever was one)...you apparently care about white people since you and so many others such as yourself play the race card any chance they get for any perceived injustice they may encounter.

65 nicole Mon, Mar 23, 2009 - 12:55 pm

i personally like tha show… i dont see nothing wrong its like a regular family jus on tv…..... thats how i see it….all of this is just people hatin on yall and they need to move on…

66 B Sure Mon, Mar 23, 2009 - 9:59 pm

What’s new? A lot of black people like to see their own act like coons. So to all that love this shit. Don’t wonder why we as a race can’t get ahead. It’s because we are OK with the world seeing us as loud mouth niggas who are on crack and don’t know who their fathers are.

67 keon walker Thu, Jun 25, 2009 - 9:36 pm

why dnt everybody jus shut up who is against her show were black so wat and i saw that one person said this makes us blacks look bad u cnt hold that in forever so she is relieveng all her stress and trying to help her mom do better…and by the way u think jus cuz this tv show iz makin us look bad look wat the w*****people r doin there children tlking bac to them hitting their mom running away nobody in this world is different we r all the same we do the same stuff go to work eat sleep have fun everybody does the same so dat doesn’t mean dat this is ebbarrasing…cuz guess wat at the end of the day u shouldn’t care wat people thinks and let ma sexii baby keyshia do ha stop hatin cuz yall ain’t gat no tv shows…

68 1 UP Sat, Jun 27, 2009 - 1:09 am

No, she is getting paid for exploiting her family members.

69 Ms Yonnie Wed, Aug 05, 2009 - 3:12 am

I basically feel like this: EVEN IF KEYSHIA IS GETTING PAID FOR THE SHOW WHY CANT SHE HELP OTHERS IN THE PROCESS??? ALL THE FOOLS THATS DEGRADING HER ISNT ANY BETTER THAN WHAT THEY ARE SAYING KEYSHIA IS DOING…ME PERSONALLY I’M HAPPY SHE CAME OUT WITH THE SHOW BECAUSE OBE EVERYONE HAS PROBLEMS SOME PEOPLE HIDE AND RUN FROM THEM BUT SHE IS WOMAN ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH THEM…HOW SHE DEALS WITH THEM IS HER BUSINESS. WHO’S TO SAY NEFFE DOESNT HAVE THE MEANS TO DO FOR HER KIDS??? YES MONEY IS A BIG OBJECT BUT EVERYBODY DOESNT DO IT FOR THE MONEY. AS FOR NEFFE I THINK YOUB ARE VERY STRONG AS A MOTHER AND I REALLY LOOK UP TO HOW YOU RAISE YOUR KIDS WITH LOVE. I HAVE 2 KIDS OF MY OWN A GIRL AND A BOY WITH ONE ON THE WAY AND I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY YOU HAD TO DO WHAT YOU HAD TO DO SO FOR THAT I GIVE YOU MUCH PROPS. AS FOR FRANKIE…SHE IS TRYING AND THATS WHATS MOST IIMPORTANT SHES TRYING. SHE WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH HER KIDS AND ANYONE WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH IT NEEDS TO GET A F*CKING LIFE. FOR ANYONE WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH WHAT IM SAYING SO WHAT GET OVER IT BECAUSE YOU WORRYING ABOUT KEYSHIA DEGRADING OUR RACE WITH THE GHETTONESS WHAT ABOUT THE BLACKS WHO STEALING, KILLING, HARRASSING, IN JAIL FOR RAPE, DISRESPECTFUL, HAS NO MANNERS, THE DEADBEAT FATHERS, THE WOMEN ON WELFARE, OR ANYTHING ELSE FOR THAT MATTER. ALL BLACK PEOPLE FIT UNDER THE SAME STEREOTYPE ITS UP TO YOU TO MAKE YOURSELF BETTER NOT KEYSHIA NOT ANYONE ELSE. ITS UP TO YOU
