Keyshia Cole has come a long way since BET premiered her first reality show ‘The Way It Is’. The BET series, named after her first album, followed her journey as a 21 year old singer who was blowing up in her career while dealing with personal struggles within her family behind the scenes. Now, six years later, she’s starring in a new show, which explores her life as a mother and wife, while gearing up for the release of her fifth studio album, ‘Woman To Woman’.
And it’s all going down in just two more days..
On the new show, that premieres this coming Tuesday (October 9th), fans can expect to get a peek inside of Keyshia’s wedding that took place in Hawaii, as well as a few appearances by Keyshia Cole’s biological mother ‘Frankie’. Keyshia recently revealed that she has made amends with her mom and Frankie is nowworking on remaining clean while being a good grandmother to Keyshia’s son DJ:
She’s on a couple of episodes of my new show. She’s been in rehab for four months now, I’m really excited about that! She’s been around hanging with DJ. DJ loves her so I’m really excited about that. It’s really a blessing to be able to experience this with my mom. I’m really sadden that my other sisters haven’t been able to be around her while she’s been sober because man, its a beautiful thing. it is a beautiful thing.
She hasn’t gone back to smoking but she definitely has had a few slip ups and we are constantly working on it. I think the best thing is that she knows when she messes up and she is still trying. I’m going to make sure she’s straight, period.
[The new show] is about me and Keyshia and what we do. We are both in contract years, so you’ll see us working, trying to handle our business and put it together in a family atmosphere. She also has her moms, she has work, everything going on, so its a real live job, not just the music but life. She’s putting that on full blast, so everybody is going to be able to see it.
