New DeBarge Biopic On the Way


TV One announces the upcoming DeBarge family biopic, All This Love: The DeBarge Family Story...'

From the TV One Upfronts
All This Love: The Debarge Family Story
The world famous DeBarge siblings sought to escape a life of abuse and rejection to become one of the most successful families in R&B music, second only to the Jacksons. 
From Switch and DeBarge to solo acts, the DeBarges enjoyed fame, wealth and gold-record status, but behind the scenes, the siblings were haunted by the ghosts of their past and deeply scarred by years of emotional and physical abuse. They inevitably fell prey to promiscuity, violence and drug addiction, sending their careers into a downward spiral from which they never fully recovered. 
All This Love will be the second installment of the Unsung Film Series.

TvOne did a great job w Mikki Howard's story, so maybe this one will be well made too. There's alot we dont really know, like Jermaine Jackson being the one who put them on. Im looking foward to it. Just make sure to pick some extra fine actors to play El & Bobby!

I loved the DeBarge family. I still believe El has one of the greatest voices of all time. Even after all the years of drug use, I heard him perform live and he sounded amazing. I will definitely watch!

And sexual abuse at the hands of their no-count father and enabled by their selfish, ain't sh*t mother. Between Etterline and Katherine Jackson, I don't know who is the worse mother.

@1:28

She's hardly being "extra", BOTH mama and papa Debarge could've been put away if police really knew what was going on in that house.

^^^^^^^^ Correct! Most still don't know to this day that all the DeBarge children were molested by their white father, while their black mother stood by and did nothing. Furthermore I thought that the DeBarges where Puerto Rican/Black.

I troll it like I see it. said...

The dad should have been taken out back and shot along with the mom. Just trifling how these "parents" screw up their children. With that being said I will watch.

I vote Etterlene the worst mama. Katherine turned a blind eye to abuse, but boys need ass whippings from their father.

I firmly believe if there were more Joe Jackson's in the world, the young Black youth wouldnt be so misguided and disrespectful.

Talk that shit if you want, you have never heard of any Jackson getting into trouble w drugs or the law, except Michaels troubles...even still, 1 out of 9 kids isnt bad at all.

@ 2:58 Well the bible told you niggas white people are the damn devil and not join unto them or any other nation outside your own but for their Black Mammy to sit up and let his evil ass sexually and physically abuse them all I say Fuck her and him too. All the shit our people in Slavery and Jim Crow Era went through and we had ancestors back then joining with these same crazy white folks SMH niggas don't lost their minds

This should be good and heart breaking at the same damn time. Will they thrown in The Janet Baby thing??? Lol cause we know Janet ass got a kid and possibly grand kids somewhere. Also to 4:16PM I agree. My dad always said "Niggas got short term memory" Oh how we forget and forgive Massa. I was told I had a great great great great ancestor that got her freedom from slavery and moved up north and married a white man a few weeks after getting her freedom.Bare six of his children and he treated them all like they were still in slavery. Bitch was crazy. Stockholm syndrome is real with Black Folks. Even till today you bet not talk against White folks around Black folks Lol

Thanks to all the people who know the full story. The father was an animal, but for Etterline to stand by and allow someone to harm her children? She's indeed the epitome of an ain't sh*t b*tch. Yes, she old but doesn't deserve respect.

Poor Katherine Jackson is alleged borderline retarded but she could have stopped Joe from letting Michael allegedly spend overnights with record company execs.

Thank You 4:26 & 4:16 said...

@4:26 forget talking about them, being yourself around them is enough to anger Black people. We care more about what they think about us than we care about ourselves!

I cant count the times ive heard, "dont act a fool in front of those white folks, dont embarrass me in front of these white folks, you better act like you got some sense when we go in here with these white folks!"

My friend was afraid to heat up his lunch in the office because he didnt want the "smell of the collard greens to offend the white people in the office!" So the house nigga ate a plate of sunday dinner cold! This shit is a huge problem for us as a people but we never talk about it.

Ok but who's telling the story? If Mama Debarge is then its gon be a whitewashed mess.

@4:16 I often wonder what happened to the thousands of enslaved black people who escaped slavery in America and ran to Canada where they supposedly lived Free. I heard that most of them married white people and no one has ever heard from them Negros again....They bread themselves out of existence. No Kingdom no Israelite Inheritance for them which is promised by Yahuah. To me there is Nothing more Beautiful than a dark beautiful blackman or blackwomen. But most of our Dark skin black people absolutely Hate making replicas of themselves. They love to mix..... Okay bring it with the comments

Mama Debarge is the one who's actually slow, borderline retarded. Even after her brothers beat her husband's ass she stayed with him.
She claimed she didn't leave because no one would take her and all those children into their home. Still no excuse to stay with an abusive psychopath. She basically escaped into church and religion.
She eventually divorced him and married another man. The damage was done and now most of those children of hers are on drugs and overpopulating the earth.
I wonder how she sleeps at night.

The Unsung special stayed with me for weeks. So tragic! This is happening more and more everyday where the entire clan struggles with addiction. I will be watching.
