Keyshia Cole Shares Touching Message For Her Mom And The Aunt Who Is Helping Her Fight Her Addiction
Unless you have a parent who has struggled with addiction, many of us cannot even begin to imagine that lifestyle. We may have seen friends and family members live through it but watching a parent, the person who is supposed to be responsible for your care and well being, struggle to take care of themselves is an entirely different experience.
We’ve seen a glimpse of it with Keyshia Cole and her mother Frankie Lons.
We’ve watched the ups and downs on the reality shows on BET, “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is” and then again when her sister and mother got a spin off, “Frankie and Neffe.” The drama didn’t stop when the reality shows did. Frankie picked up a drug related arrest in April of 2011, released that “Frankie Leg” video later that same year, and most recently appeared on Paternity Court to determine her daughter Elite’s parentage.
But in a recent Instagram post, Cole reports that things are starting to look up for her mother, through the help of her Aunt BB.
Check out the beautiful message she left for her aunt and her mother below.

We’re wishing Frankie continued success as she works to get her life back on track.
Most of us know Keyshia Cole for two things: love-scorned yet heartwarming R&B joints and her tumultuous relationships whether it regard family or her ex-husband, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.
However, the chanteuse is broadening her horizons and branding herself outside of the realm of reality television. According to Global Grind, the Oakland native has landed a role in the highly-anticipated Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me. After John Singleton dropped out of the Morgan Creek Production earlier this summer, famed music video director Benny Boom has taken on the role as director.
Earlier this week Cole shared the news of her acting debut via Instagram, revealing that she would be playing the part of a character named Queen. (Cole’s post has since been deleted.) In addition to Keyshia, the biopic has cast several others including seasoned actor Hill Harper, actress and singer Kat Graham, football player DeSean Jackson, Jamal Woolward who will reprise his Notorious role as Biggie, and Demetrius Shipp, Jr. starring as Pac.
As always, we’re interested in your thoughts. Are you all ready to see Keyshia Cole acting?
Love has not always been kind to Keyshia Cole—or any of us for that matter—but the R&B singer refuses to allow romantic setbacks to keep her down for too long. Just last fall, we were discussing the singer’s relationship with hip-hop mogul Bryan “Birdman” Williams, which apparently ended when she allegedly popped up at his home during the wee hours of the morning and attacked one of his female companions. Prior to that, Cole made headlines when she announced that she would be divorcing her ex-husband, former Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel “Booby” Gibson. Now, as far as we know, that has yet to happen—but it appears that the 34-year-old songstress is already embarking on a new chapter that involves vows, cake and wedding bling.
For reasons that we’re unsure of at this time, a fan tweeted Cole early Sunday morning to ask if she’s “married yet.” She quickly responded, telling the fan that she’s actually engaged. To whom, we haven’t the slightest idea; however, we’re sure that it’s not Birdman.
No. Engaged. ☺️ https://t.co/WDkTgPcCKB

Of course, there’s a chance that Keysh is pulling our legs; however, the proof will be in the divorce proceedings. Stay tuned.
It appears that if you play it smart it becomes quite easy for reality TV stars to snag their very own reality tv spinoffs.

10 Fab Mama Moments of Keyshia Cole and Son
Keyshia Cole is our everyday girl and that’s why we love her but sometimes that everyday factor becomes very questionable in terms of style. Her main problem is that she piles on too many accessories and her color coordination goes deep in one direction but not in the way that Solange and Lupita can rock one monotone.
Verdict? She needs a new styling team.

Keyshia Cole: 15 Times She Needed a Stylist
No sooner than Keyshia Cole boldly proclaimed that she is officially done with husband Daniel Gibson, he took to Instagram with what appears to be another gesture to let the world know he doesn’t want to let go. The former Cleveland Cavaliers player shared a series of nine Instagram posts, which together form one whole picture of his estranged wife.
While he didn’t caption any of the posts, we get the message loud and clear. What’s confusing, however, is that Daniel had finally been granted the opportunity to work things out with Keyshia and he continued to pursue other women. As you may recall, several days after the couple made a public appearance together and made it quite obvious that they were trying to work things out, Keyshia blasted the aspiring rapper for trying to get with the model cast as the love interest in his new music video. From there, things spiraled out of control and the singer accused him of being a deadbeat father who failed to contact their son on his birthday.
While we would love for these two to make this work, it’s becoming painfully obvious that this may not be the best option.
In an interview with Harvey Levin and Charles Latibeaudiere of TMZ Live, Keyshia Cole spoke about the messy public spats she has been having as of late with her estranged husband, Daniel “Booby” Gibson. It was an interesting interview, as Cole spoke openly on why things between the two had fallen apart, and fallen apart in the public eye yet again. It seems that Cole finds social media therapeutic, because when she was asked if she regretted airing him out on online numerous times, she responded with “yeah, so no, I don’t. Uh uh.” She wants everyone to know that at this point, their focus is on their child and nothing more. It’s a wrap.
At the beginning of the chat, Cole was asked why she was angry about Gibson’s attempts to get to know other women, considering that they were separated and working on their “friendship.” She had this to say:
“Be clear that the friendship stage is within the marriage. I wouldn’t get back with you just to be a ‘friend.’ We’re married. Clearly. Every time we go through things that’s an issue: ‘You’re still a married woman.’ ‘You’re still a married man.’ So if we connect and say that we’re going to start off as friends…I’m trying to figure out how it didn’t work out in the beginning. We’re always supposed to be friends. Let me ask you guys this though: Do you really believe that you should still be able to talk to other people if you’re starting over in a marriage? Do you think that’s healthy??”
Cole went on to say that it was okay for Gibson to date other women after they initially split, but when he made it seem as though he wanted to get back together, he should have known better than to try to flirt and court other people while trying to win her back.
“There were things that he dealt with before that I was like, you shouldn’t just cut people off. It’s unfair to people. Unfortunately, what we went through, you should speak to them young ladies or whoever they are about whatever we’re doing. Be honest with people. But it’s not right if you’re trying to be like, ‘Oh yeah, let’s go. I need to be with you.’ I don’t think that’s healthy. But I don’t know. Maybe I could be living in a crazy world.”
When asked whether or not there was a chance they could still work things out, Cole made it clear that she’s put herself through enough pain and that they’re “100 percent” done.
“No, we’re not going to work it out.”
So instead of worrying about reuniting, Cole says their main focus needs to be on their son, Daniel, Jr.
“I spoke to Gib last night and he came by to see munchkin. That should be our focus. We should realize that the relationship is not going to work and it’s just not for us. We can move on from there. We have to get over this hump of not being together first. I think there will still be feelings and tension, but ultimately, the goal is to just focus on DJ and move on.”
My heart goes out to women like Karrueche Tran and Keyshia Cole. They’re in the public eye, and they had to suffer through the devastation of learning that their men stepped out on them with other women. Being in the public eye puts them in a position to be heavily criticized if they make the decision, for themselves, to take Chris and “Booby” back. I couldn’t deal with that.
I was cheated on by my fiance many moons ago, and deciding to take him back wasn’t an easy decision to come to. It took a lot of time and a lot of healing. Taking a man back after he’s cheated requires a different level of strength. You have to be an extraordinarily strong woman to continue to love and live with a person after they’ve betrayed your trust in such a way.
So how does one deal after finding out that their man has been emotionally or sexually connecting with someone else? Though every individual has their own way of dealing with a cheating spouse, here’s what I did and what you can try if you’re considering taking him back.
Do Not Blame Yourself
For a lot of women, including myself, the natural reaction to learning that your man ran to someone else is to question your own worthiness and actions. You ask yourself, “what did I do that pushed him out the door and into the arms of another woman?” And when the comparisons between yourself and the other woman begin to cloud your mind, you ask yourself, “what didn’t I do?”
I would hope that Cole and Tran have a solid grip on the reality that when a man cheats, it rarely has much to do with you. They made that decision for themselves, and people who bend over backwards for their man can still be cheated on.
However, if you have the sudden urge for self-improvement based upon your experience, go for it! These kinds of things have an interesting way of fueling a woman to strive for better. However, be careful not to confuse bettering yourself with stopping your man’s infidelity. As far as his character goes, he has some obvious issues to unpack and that is not your fault, girl.
Give Yourself Some Time
When I took my fiance back, my best friend said to me, “You let him back already?! Girl you should have at least made him suffer for a few more months.” She was right. There should be a literal “cooling off” period. The last thing we care about after our man has stepped out on us is his feelings, but it’s unfair to him and unhealthy for you to allow him back into your life soon after learning that he’s been creeping. Give yourself time to collect your thoughts and yourself, because living together with built-up anger and distrust is like trying to build a home on top of a minefield.
When you have unresolved emotions lingering and a man who’s trying to go back to normal as quickly as he can, the healing process for both of you will be delayed. You don’t have to put an exact date and time on when you’ll take him back, but there needs to be some time for you to just sort through YOUR emotions before you decide to face him and all the mess you’ll both have to untangle. If you can, pretend you’re Usher and let it burn for a little while. It will do you both some good in the long run.
If You Decide To Forgive, You Probably Should Forget
A lot of us can forgive our men for cheating, but many of us don’t believe in letting him forget what he did. For him, being reminded of his mistake won’t be anything more than annoying, but for you, it can be like reliving that first day of heartbreak all over again.
If you’ve accepted him back, you’ve decided that you want to make it work, so bringing up the past or harping on it in your mind is a no-no. It’s easier to simply stick to solutions when talking about what happened, but be mindful that you can’t live in the past when you’re trying to create a future with someone.
In order to live in peace after you’ve forgiven him, you will have to set your attention on rebuilding the trust, not on thinking about the act of infidelity. Learning to trust again is painful, but that pain lasts longer when you’re constantly digging up the past. It keeps you in that negative space and it’s counterproductive to what you and your spouse are trying to do.
Skip The Details
I remember wanting to know everything that went down between my fiance and the other woman. I wanted to know so much so that I reached out to her and asked her to send me all the photos, text messages and emails from him. Well, she did. I was even more devastated.
Digging for details is like pouring salt on an open wound. If you’ve already made the decision to accept him back, then trying to find out any and everything is unnecessary and does more harm than good.
Trust me, you don’t really want to know all of the details. For the most part, you will only see and understand what your hurting heart perceives, but you’ll rarely get the full truth. Skip all the details and focus solely on rebuilding if that’s what you want to do.
Depending on how well you know this man, you should quickly be able to figure out if what happened was truly a mistake, or if this will be the first of many uphill battles when it comes to your man’s infidelity. As a human, being flawed is expected and inevitable. But a woman should not allow herself to constantly be disrespected by a man who can’t commit to only her. Taking him back after multiple cheating incidents will begin to set a precedent in your relationship. It lets him and the world know that you are down for whatever. If that is what you agreed to, so be it, but be careful not to continuously take this man back simply because you are in love with what he “could be.”
In the end, taking a cheating spouse back is a difficult decision to make. But in some cases, surprisingly, doing so can completely change the relationship for the better.
