Frankie explains why she gave up her kids and her college scholarship

    Long before Frankie became the incarcerated mother of singing sensation Keyshia Cole, she was as a high school gymnast and swimmer who won medals and a scholarship to college.

    Where did it all go wrong? She explains in this video from her interview for the July 2009 issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine.


    Frankie describes how she felt when she saw her first baby. She reveals that she has eight–not seven–children and advises young women to put their pride aside and do what’s best for their children.
