TV One’s original movie, “When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story” is set to air on Labor Day. The network announced the big news during their recent 2017 Upfront Presentation.
When Love Kills tells the tragic true story of Falicia Blakely (Lil Mama), a teen mom who grows up in the fast-lane. When she becomes an exotic dancer, she attracts the attention of local pimp and predator, Dino (Lance Gross). His empty promises of a life together turns Falicia into a pawn in his dangerous games; and she’s forced to prove her love for him at the expense of innocent lives. “When Love Kills” also stars Tami Roman, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Big Freedia, Tiffany Black and Lil Zane.
As previously stated above, “When Love Kills” marks the directing debut of acclaimed actress Tasha Smith and was written and executively produced by Cas Sigers-Beedles, who previously wrote and executively produced TV One movies “Welcome to the Family” and “Girlfriends Getaway 1 & 2.”
“When you’re out there and you’re living that fast life, you can never say what you wouldn’t do,” says Falicia Blakely, a nude dancer and mother who committed multiple murders at age 18 in an interview with a Georgia newspaper.
Blakely murdered three men in a one-night robbery spree on orders of her pimp and is currently serving three consecutive life terms with no chance of parole.
First of all, what is true love? True love is the true definition of a perfect romance. But it’s not easy to find or maybe even be realistic. Some people do experience clearly magical connections very early on in a relationship that predict long-term commitment and devotion. The intense drive of sexual attraction is part of every new relationship but there are additional feelings when true, long-lasting love is a possibility. The sense of being alive is felt simultaneously and in every cell of the body. The heart feels as if it is opening, the mind is completely engaged, the senses are awakened, and a feeling of transcendence often emerges.
Many new couples start out believing they are having some of these experiences, only to find out that they somehow didn’t keep happening, or that their connection lost its spark. Those are understandable disappointments. But every partnership has a better chance of surviving when the people within them feel early on that the relationship is real and won’t go away. True love doesn’t give in to the typical challenges that end most relationships. It grows stronger when it is threatened.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – FEBRUARY 28: Singer Mary J. Blige (L) and Kendu Isaacs attend the 24th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party at The City of West Hollywood Park on February 28, 2016 in West Hollywood, California. (Photo by Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for EJAF)
R&B singer Mary J Blige lost the latest round in her acrimonious divorce battle with estranged husband Kendu Isaacs. A Judge ordered the “Not Gon’ Lie” singer to pay Isaacs $30,000 a month in temporary spousal support.
The amount is a fraction of the $129,319 a month that Isaacs originally asked the judge to force Blige to pay. In court documents Blige accused her former manager of using her to support his parents, girlfriend, and his children from a previous relationship.
“I’m not responsible for supporting his parents and his children from another relationship, which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses,” Blige stated in her divorce petition.
But the judge bought Isaacs’ argument that he was entitled to the lavish lifestyle he had become accustomed to as the husband of an R&B star.
The judge also ordered Blige to pay spousal support retroactively, dating back to when she first filed for a divorce, and his legal fees for a total of $235,000.
In addition to the spousal support, Blige and Isaacs also owe the IRS millions in back taxes.
This might be a good time for Blige to file for bankruptcy to reorganize her finances.

As the sexual assault trial is due to begin in the Cosby case, sources close to the comedian state, that he’s paranoid someone will try and harm him. Sources say Cosby refuses to stay at any of the hotels close to the courthouse for fear that someone will try and poison him or break into his hotel room and harm him. So Cosby will make the 300 mile trip back and forth to the courthouse from his Philadelphia home via his private plane.
The Cosby show actor is accused of sexually assaulting former University employee Andrea Constand. Constand alleges the 79-year-old drugged and molested her in 2004.
Mr Cosby says he is innocent and the encounter was consensual.
It is being seen as the biggest US celebrity trial since former American football player OJ Simpson’s murder trial in 1995.
Several of Mr Cosby’s co-stars from the 1984-1992 sitcom The Cosby Show are expected to attend the trial in Norristown outside Philadelphia, along with more than 100 journalists. Broadcasters and photographers are expected to camp outside for the circus, which is set to unfold.
