Bossip recently caught up with Neffe for an Exclusive Interview where she discusses family and her new show “Neffe and Solo’s Family Tree.”
BOSSIP: How are you doing Neffe? We haven’t seen much from you since your BET show ended. Were you guys not offered another season?
Neffe: I’m blessed. James Dubois and BET offered me a second season but I declined it because I didn’t like the direction the show was going in and how I was being portrayed. I took two years off of reality TV.
BOSSIP: So why didn’t you attend the wedding?
I didn’t go to the wedding because I wasn’t properly invited. I’m just being honest. I love my sister, I love my mom, I love my family but I was not properly invited to the wedding. First of all, they didn’t get married in Hawaii, they got married in Vegas. I wasn’t invited to the actual wedding ceremony in Vegas. I was invited to the wedding/taping in Hawaii and I felt like if I wasn’t invited to the first one, why should I go to a ceremony that you’re taping in Hawaii? I got a phone call two days before the wedding and only myself and my two daughters were invited. My husband and my five children were not invited. I got a phone call two days before it was time to film and I could not just get up and hop on a plane and go to a wedding ceremony. That was craziness to me. If anything I would have preferred to be at the particular time that you actually got married and I didn’t hear about that until it hit the media. I woke up and everybody was calling me like, ‘Oh my God congratulations your sister got married,’ and I’m like huh? Like there was a big question mark over my head.
BOSSIP: Was there a problem before that?
Everybody in the world knows it’s been off and on with myself and Keyshia. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sister and she loves me. Somewhere down the line we went our separate ways, but while I’ve been focused on trying to rebuild our relationship, she’s been busy rebuilding her career and been focused on her family and when I say her family I mean Daniel and my nephew. She didn’t have time to worry about rebuilding our relationship but we’re not like — it’s not a rivalry or nothing it’s just something a sister goes through. Life.
And you think it’s because you guys did the show?
No I know it’s because we did the show. She’s extremely upset that I trusted Manny Hailey. She thinks we shouldn’t have done the “Frankie and Neffe Show” without her being involved.
The show you’re doing with your husband, is that “Neffe and Solo’s Family Tree”?
Yes it’s “Neffe and Solo’s Family Tree.” I found all of my sisters and brothers and I will be bringing them to the table. My oldest daughter is now 15 and she’s singing, she has all honors classes, my children are growing. Me and my husband have Kingbeat productions which is TV and film, we have a record label Kingbeat Records and I’m excited to show the world. With the other shows I feel like we didn’t get to see the real Neffe. Everybody thinks I’m this ghetto hood, chunk up the deuces type chick, I’m not even close to that. I’m such a cream puff. The TV producers want to see that. When you push somebody against a wall what are they gonna do? Fight. I lost my son, I was going through a lot. I was an angry black woman. But on a day to day basis I’m very inspirational. I’m a cream puff.
