Drug Kingpin Wives

C'mon In your heart of hearts you just knew this was eventually going to happen didn't you? Shooting has already started on a TV pilot for a potential reality series chronicling the messed up lives of the wives of drug kingpins currently serving time in the big house.

The show will focus on the spouses of the former heads of the infamous Black Family Mafia which was based in Detroit and run by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory who is now serving a 30-year sentence.

Among the cast members, according to the synopsis, for the show are:

  • Tonesa Welch, who calls herself the “First Lady of BMF,” appears to be the Shaunie O’Neal of this whole venture of the BMF story.
  • Gricelda Chavez who was involved with music producer Damon Thomas (incidentally, although not as famous as Kris Humphries, he is also a Kim Kardashian divorcee). Damon was a player in a BMF money-laundering scheme involving jewelry purchases and, when confronted with the evidence, agreed to cooperate with the government as a witness against Terry.
  •  
  • Lisa Bulford's man “PJ” was a high-ranking BMF affiliate,
  •  
  • Tiffany Gloster and her man Jerry “J Rock” Davis were both indicted by the DEA on BMF-related charges in 2007. Tiffany served a two year sentence for her part in helping to launder the proceeds from J Rock’s cocaine sales. J Rock is currently serving a sentence of 39 years and 10 months in prison.

Though no cable channel as yet has picked up the pilot, the production company which is making the show, Strange Fruit Media, has produced several past shows for BET. So the idea is to pitch it first to the network before moving on to other networks.

Personally I think the Oprah Winfrey Network should pick it up. It's a slam dunk!
