Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is Season 2

December 27, 2008 by Kimberlee Morrison  

I’ve never been a big on Keyshia Cole. I always respect when artists work hard to work their way from the bottom up. So despite my thinking her voice sounds like a cat being tortured, I cannot knock Keyshia Cole’s hustle.

Especially after catching several episodes of her BET celeb-reality show The Way It Is, in which we get to take a peek into Keyshia’s family life. Where last season viewers got a look at Cole rise to stardom - from her trouble past, to becoming a critically acclaimed artist - this season goes deeper into Keyshia’s family life, juxtaposing the dynamic of her adoptive family against that of her biological family.

The most entertaining bits are perhaps also the saddest. Drama ensues as Keyshia tries to mend the relationship with her mother, Franky, who was recently released from prison. Take a look at the clip below and tell me Franky ain’t off the chain…

As you can see, this mending is not easy and Keyshia is dealing with some very heavy stuff. From an outside perspective, many will laugh and talk about how crazy Keyshia’s mother is. If we watch with compassion though, and look at Keyshia Cole as a person, our hearts will go out to her as she works to be healthy and whole, and drag her family into that same wholeness.

None of this drama stops Ms. Cole from continuing to do her thing. She recently released her third full length LP entitled A Different Me, which Keysha says pays homage to her current transformation. Check out what she had to say about her new album here.

Keyshia Cole also kicked off her tour in Chicago today and will continue through January 14th. Visit Keyshia Cole MySpace for show dates near you.
