Keyshia Cole?s bio-mom, Frankie Lons, made an appearance on the Rickey Smiley radio show recently.
Frankie, who once gave a “shout out to Hennessey” while in court, candidly discussed her estranged relationship with Keyshia and also revealed she will be headed to rehab soon to appropriately address her addiction to alcohol.
ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH KEYSHIA:
I was talking to Monica and she had mentioned Keyshia?s name and I had just got emotional because I really had missed her because we was going through something, but were okay. We?re back on point, talked to her yesterday.
ON RUMORS THAT SHE HEADED TO DR. DREW’S “CELEBRITY REHAB?:
Absolutely. That’s cause I had really started overdoing it with my drinking. It?s really taking its toll because sometimes I wake up and don?t remember nothing. Basically I?m hiding stuff from myself and that means that I need help.
FRANKIE’S DRINK OF CHOICE?
Hennessy. If I had it like the rest of the celebrities had it, I?d be drinking Louie the 13th. Shout out to Louie!
ON WHEN SHE REALIZED SHE NEEDED HELP?
Last month. Well, I?ve been in denial. I thought I was drinking socially until I woke up and didn?t realize where I was. Sometimes I feel like I know I’ve got it under control, but that’s just the Devil.
I’m rooting for Frankie. She’s been through alot and is way more grounded that you’d ever believe.? I pray that her stint on “Celebrity Rehab” is more than just a money making opportunity.
