TV One really outdid itself with its latest original film, When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely story! If you have ever been a fan of the network’s Fatal Attraction series then you will really love this movie. Marking Tasha Smith’s directorial debut, the film is based off a true story. Falicia Blakely (Lil Mama) was a young woman who became a stripper and pregnant when she was only sixteen years old. Abandoned by her daughter’s father and living with her troubled mother (Tami Roman), she is forced to grow up and work to make ends meet. Her luck seems to change when she meets Big Dino (Lance Gross), a drug dealer and charmer. Her life spirals out of control as she sacrifices her life, body, and ultimately her freedom all in the name of love.

Indeed this is a story that has all the angst, danger, and makings of any traditional Lifetime movie! Tasha Smith is an excellent director. Her guidance coupled with this amazing cast of actors really makes this film awesome. Lil Mama’s acting chops are Grade A and we cannot wait to see her in more productions!

TV One definitely knows what it is doing and we can only hope things go up from here. We need to see more films like these about real people, especially young women. Most people have no idea just how prevalent sex trafficking is or that most women are in prison based on something surrounding a man.

Wendy Williams' Hunter Foundation Celebration

Family violence is all too prevalent and NEVER okay. When you add celebrity status to that mix it only makes a miasma of mess on public display. Wendy Williams knows this all too well as more details are coming out about the altercation between her son Kevin, and his father–and her soon to be ex-husband, Kevin, Sr. Allegedly, Kevin, Sr. hit his son in the face after being called a bitch by him. The two then began to wrestle and the police were called, resulting the younger Kevin being arrested.

kevin hunter senior and kevin hunter jr wendy williams husband and son fight

“with a closed fist to the face.”

Kevin Jr. then got closer to his dad before he pushed him, which resulted in a scuffle.

The redacted report obtained reads,

 “Kevin [Jr.] then stated that he called [redacted] a ‘b****,’ which caused [redacted] to approach him in an aggressive manner and started pointing [redacted] finger very close to his face. [Kevin] Jr. then admitted to pushing [redacted], which caused them to start wrestling with one another.”

Kevin Sr. has insisted that he didn’t punch his son. But it was Kevin Jr. who was taken into custody for domestic violence simple assault. This all happened outside of a Krauszer’s Food Stores located in West Orange, NJKevin Jr. also refused to receive medical treatment.

Williams was not present at the time. But it might be safe to say the drama between the Kevins makes her emotional. She cried when a reporter asked her how her son and her soon-to-be ex-husband were doing (after he thought a man next to Williams was Kevin Jr.)

“Please don’t ask about Kevin. We have an 18-year-old son and I’m sensitive to that. But that is not Kevin. Young Kevin and I are fine… Big [Kevin]… Godspeed… You know, stuff happens in life. Stuff happens. And it’s okay. I’ve still got a very full life that I’ve really endured. Please don’t make me cry… Oh my gosh… I didn’t plan on this but it was what it was… I have a very full life. I would ask you to respect our privacy but please I don’t respect people’s privacy… But all three of us are doing fine.”

She said everyone will see the three of them together again considering Kevin Jr. has major life events coming up like graduating from college in a couple of years. She also spoke on the drama between the Kevins.

“They’re not apart.”

We are praying for Wendy and her family. This is clearly painful for her and the strain that all of this is placing her on family and health has been apparent.
