Wasn’t it all that flossin’ that got BMF in trouble in the first place???
Do we need another “Wives” reality show? The ladies in the lives of drug kingpins BMF (Black Mafia Family) think so. The foursome recently started shooting a reality show pilot with Strange Fruit Media, a production company that has produced content for BET and other networks, and are hoping to land a TV deal.
Thanks in part to Rick Ross, BMF co-founder Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory has become a household name, even while serving a 30 year sentence for running a continuing criminal enterprise (aka selling a whole lot of coke). Rumor has it there’s a bit of friction growing between Meech and his lesser-known brother and business partner, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.
Terry’s wife Tonesa Welch (far right), who calls herself the “First Lady of BMF,” appears to be the Shaunie O’Neal of this whole venture and hopes to help tell Terry’s side of the BMF story.
The other cast members include:
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 Buford’s man “PJ” was a high-ranking BMF affiliate on Terry’s side of the organization. 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.
Would you watch? If Real Housewives, Basketball Wives, Football Wives, Baseball Wives, and Mob Wives aren’t enough for you, reach out to your favorite TV network and tell ‘em to pick up the BMF Wives pilot.
We thought the whole premise behind being part of an international crime syndicate was keeping a low profile, but we guess if the “Mob Wives” can do it, we shouldn’t hate on the ladies of “BMF” for getting their shine on. Besides, we’re guessing them hard white checks may have stopped coming in and clearly these ladies need something to support their handbag habits!
