Frankie, who admittedly lived a fast and irresponsible life back when Elite was conceived, confesses she does not know who her daughter’s biological father is and cautions young women about the dangers of sleeping with too many men.
“I could line up five men here. We’re talking 30 years ago and that’s sad,” reveals Lons during the proceedings.
As she becomes emotional recounting her story, Lons says, “These tears are for none of these people, none of these men, they’re for her. Because no matter what, the test results will hurt, whether they are positive or negative. She still has to live with my mistakes and I’m here to correct it.”

Judge Lauren Lake, who previously served as the family’s life coach on the BET show “Frankie & Neffe” shared how impressed she is with Lons, who has built a stronger relationship with her daughters even as she battled her personal addictions.
“I know this family, I have counseled this family and I also know how important it is to get these issues resolved,” Lake comments. “This is about her. This is about her life and about getting the opportunity to put all her puzzle pieces together so that she gets to see her big picture.”
While Frankie and Elite have already tested one man on the BET reality show, ‘Frankie & Neffe’ whom they suspected was the father, two more men will be brought into the ‘Paternity Court’ courtroom to potentially determine if one is Elite’s biological father.
“I don’t want to be judgmental towards my mother because due to the circumstances from being on the streets and being on drugs and dealing with these type of men, I don’t want to judge her for that,” said Noel.
“But on another note I feel like why do I have to continue to suffer from the things that happened in the past? The things that I couldn’t control then and the things I can’t control now.”
“If we are going to let this be a lesson for all the women around the world, please limit your sexual partners and then you won’t have to go through this,” she says.
Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court returns for its third season Monday, September 21st. Frankie & Elite will appear September 24, 2015.
