Lmmao wow! This is when I 1st left DeKalb County and had to go through Metro for diagnostics. All the medical testing you can think of. You have to shower in a row of showers in a packed room with a thin white curtain. I had to shampoo with a preventative lice treatment and this is how short my hair drawed up curly.

LisaRaye, Bow Wow, And Jermaine Dupri Were All In Attendance At Da Brat’s Prison Party:
When Da Brat was released from prison, she shared with BOSSIP that she had no plans of going back. While she handled her own in prison, Da Brat revealed that she didn’t want to glorify it because it’s a place that no one would want to go. Despite the fact that she never wants to be behind bars again, Da Brat embraced her past by throwing a prison themed party to celebrate her freedom.
With Da Brat’s mug shots as center pieces, guests were asked to wear prison attire. Many party goers dressed in orange or rocked khaki colored dickies. In addition to the attire, guests dined on prison food, such as Ramen noodles and cheesy tuna noodles. Keeping with the theme, Da Brat had two bunk beds along with black and white decor. Her sister, Lisa Raye, was in the house along with Jermaine Dupri and Bow Wow. Deb Antney was in attendance, as was Da Brat’s manager, Lucy “Juice” Raoof.
