More power to this sista. Sounds like she's been through the struggle. I see now why she walked away from the show. Many people who have been abused most of their lives never learn how to fight back or protect themselves. She did just that by calling out folks she thought were once again mistreating her.

I hope she continues her healing but I would caution her that staying in the Industry will definitely be an impediment. It's hard enough for THEM and they have resources so imagine the hurdles a Black woman has to face. She may want to find a different forum.

Wow,imagine going through that as a child, then experiencing that as an adult after landing on a mainstream show, so glad she didn't compromise, I compromised.

Good luck to her. Glad her faith has helped her. Here’s hoping she makes a difference by telling her truth.
