THROWBACK PICS: MAIA CAMPBELL IN KING MAG; ACTRESS DISHED ON SUGE, SHAQ & JAY-Z.

This girl! Bless her heart. I've always been a fan of her and her mother. But for her to be such a beautiful girl, the craziness she once embraced wasn't a good look at all. I just want her to get better....to get the help her mother so desperately wanted for her before she passed away. Here I was thinking her mental illness had gotten worse within the past couple of years, but low and behold I find this excerpt from her 2002 King magazine interview which proves, at least to me, she'd been a bit off for a while now.

However, that was then, these days, from my understanding, Maia has pulled herself together since the death of her mother, best-selling author Bebe Moore Campbell. Moore Campbell died at the age of 56 on November 27, 2006 from complications related to brain cancer...just one day after Maia's 30th birthday. It's no secret that Maia, who scored the biggest role of her career as 'Tiffany Warren' on UPN's In the House, privately battled drug abuse. Soon as the hit sitcom was canceled, rumors of Maia's drug abuse and erratic behavior around Hollywood began to swarm around the Internet and beyond. In the July 2004 issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine, Maia candidly admitted to abusing drugs while vehemently denying rumors that she's a certified nut job. 'I am not a psycho. There's a rumor going around that I'm a psycho,' Maia told the magazine. The actress's rapid decline into drugs and whispers of the beauty being bi-polar is what some believed was the catalyst that strained her relationship with her mother. And some speculate Bebe's last novel, 72 Hour Hold, was loosely based on her relationship with her daughter.....

...Whatever the case may be, Maia says she was able to make peace with her mother before she passed away.And I know from from personal experience (I lost my father to bone cancer in 2005) that a moment like that is a truly welcoming comfort as well as one of the most precious privileges God can ever bestow upon you. Some say Maia has gotten herself together and has become stronger since her mother's untimely death. Maia says she now finds happiness from the love she feels for her family, true friends, her profound belief in God and everything else that makes life worth living, bless her heart. It's true what they say: Loosing a loved one can have one of two effects on a person. Either you'll fall by the wayside something terrible OR you'll get your dusty ass up, brush yourself off and get back on the right track in order to move on with your life.

These days Maia is busy taking care of her young daughter, Elizabeth Elisha Gutierrez (who is named after Maia's mother) and operating her production company, MCC which is a multi-tasked business that provides today's film and television culture with quality entertainment.

It makes me feel good to be able to write such a positive story on her because Lord knows there aren't too many out there. I just hope in the future I can continue to post more inspiring stories involving her.

Let's continue to hope and pray for the best for her.

She's in my prayers. It makes me wonder where are people she has worked with like LL, Larenz and Tyrese.

I know she's not their responsibility but damn don't they know somebody who know somebody who know somebody?

J5 said...

go-cali asked why LL Cool J wouldn't step in and help. I for one know that when you are dealing with an addict, they won't respond until they're ready. I bet LL and others have tried to intervene. Good to know that at least he tried to help.

It is what it is in the '09 said...

I share the same sentiments as candylicker! Aint nothing wrong with Maia. She just doing this shit for attention and i bet she's sitting somewhere reading what errybody is saying about her and it's blowing her ego up. She know just what she doing. That girl aint sick. SHE IS SLICK. and she got yall right where she want yall: talking about her and making her a internet legend.

CRAZY ASS BITCH IS WHAT SHE IS!

^^^WTF?!!?!! Are u freaking serious?!! If that's how you feel then you are crazier than you claim her to be. Damn it's some assholes in this world and you, my dear is one of them. I just can't believe you actually said that. Are you bi-polar too? You got to be.

Boy the ignorant things people say is unreal!

Anyway, those photos are beautiful. I believe she really could have become one of the most sought after actresses had she continued to take her medication and devoted herself to the craft that she once excelled in: acting. It should have been Maia in leading roles that Sanaa, Gabrielle, Nia, Essence and Regina Hall were starring in.

She had so much potential. SGurl looking at one of your ads reminded me when Mai had an endorsement deal with Pantene. I remember seeing her ad in magazines.

We all have our demons. I thank God that she is coming to terms with hers. She still a beautiful young black sista, and for anyone to look down on her cause of her situation needs a self check. Anyone without God and his grace is one step from where she was. I just hope she will continue to get better for herself and her daughter, we have enough torn black families. So Maia keep yo head up and God bless
