Trifling Parenting

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

This is taking the term “home alone” to the extreme:

A woman accused of leaving eight children with little food and no money while she traveled to Africa to marry a man she met on the Internet has been arrested. Shanell Monique Mosley, 33, was met by authorities as she got off an Air France jet Monday at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and charged with child endangerment and child abandonment for leaving the children in squalid conditions

When she left for Nigeria on December 31, Mosley told her 15 year-old daughter she would return in a month. Mosley’s children are ages 1, 7, 8, 9, 15 and 16, Jordan said. The other two children found in the home were 3 and 4 year-olds the family cared for on behalf of a single father who worked, Jordan said.

The 9 year-old son told authorities he and the baby ate a still-frozen pizza for breakfast the morning they were discovered home alone. There were no diapers, baby food or formula for the infant, no sheets on beds and fruit was rotting in a basket.

No words for this woman, really. How can you leave eight kids behind to fly across the globe to hook up wih some jumpoff you met on the internet in Africa. This ish is beyond crazy. Now this is a dumb broad right here.

    First of all, this women is mildly retarded. Because any one in their right mind would not have that many d@^# children and u know u can’t take care of them. Then she travels thousand of miles away to marry a stranger. R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D…..RETARDED!

    She’s trifling AND busted…bad combination…

  • PrettyMissSunshine

    I wonder how many baby fathers? (Hate that term) 😦

  • Wu

    This is BEYOND unbelievable… see, this poor lady started talking to a man in Africa telling her all these things, she probably fantasized about a new life, and created this facade in her mind that she didn’t even have kids. And the man that she supposedly married in Africa, I am almost positive he doesn’t know she has kids, let alone eight. Gee-wiz.

    an african, nigerian hustla, ha? wow, you know she paid for her trip, sponsored him to come with her at a later time, and left money for him and his other wives to squander while she’s back here .. wow – i need to open a safe haven for foolishness like this – maybe charge a day rate to check up or board your kids while you do what you gotta do .. wow, no words .. and i have a big mouth but this has left me speechless

  • PrettyMissSunshine

    oh and @ Mr.Look, who’s running now, Mr.30 minute abs? lol (joke) 🙂

  • What The..

    and her house was decent so it wasnt like she was struggling., if she “loved” him she should flew him over to the states

    …then they said the dad dropped his kids off at the house and dropped her off at the damn airport…him too in my book both of them need a slap


    She had enough money for internet service?..

  • PrettyMissSunshine

    @ Axelary

    I was wondering the same thing. If you can’t affrod to leave food or money in the house for your kids, how the hell can you afford a trip to Africa? Priorities people, get them together!!! Please!1

  • Mr. Look Good In Anything


    Damn you got some good ones!! Keep hiding, baby…I hit you back on the “Sagging” post…

  • MzTee

    There are no words in the English dictionary to describe how incredibly stupid this woman is. She doesn’t deserve to be anyone’s mother. Please skip the trial and put her in jail — NOW!!!

  • Wu

    lol @ kimbo.

  • Nikki

    I hope she gets put in jail for a long time and hopefully not slapped onthe wrist and made to take some damn parenting classes. She is a disgrace to black mothers everywhere running to Africa to marry some fool (yuck). Hope she is gettin ruffed up in jail and some chick’s b*&$#.

  • Lucy

    @ SBM

    I agree. If I want to see stuff like this I’ll go to

  • msjlh

    The trial should be interesting. She ought to be glad she made it back alive. You hear quite often how people meet over the internet, then meet in person and sometimes a tragedy occurs.

    She could not have been that desperate for a man to the point that she would endanger her own kids just to meet him. He probably paid for everything and all she saw was dollar signs.

  • Axelary

    @PrettyMissS .. yup .. and you best believe mama got money [hell, she’s on OUR payroll] so, we should claim some of those kids .. i know she left those teens enough but you know they used some on their little dumb boyfriends or like riley on boondocks, ‘aint i fresh though’ on some new gear .. wow! i gots’ta’see this Chief Engineer Idowu Babatunde Yetunde Sunday Amaka she flew for, i must!

  • OneStep

    So stupid. Her man probably wanted to marry her dumbass in order to get over to the US. With all those damn kids, the LAST thing on her mind should have been getting her some black mandingo.

  • V

    Wow…I thought that was a celeb caught drunk or w/o makeup or something. You know you can’t recognize them w/o all their additions.

    As for her…broke down, busted, disgusted & can’t be trusted.

    I say she needs to be stoned in the town square.
