reclaims the life and lifestyle she so loves. In addition to focusing on
her acting career, she's got to help her 19-year-old daughter Kai deal
with the challenges of transitioning to adulthood; keep her incarcerated
sister, the rapper Da Brat, in line; take care of her ailing mother, and
of course, hold down a little love life of her own.
