Actress Maia Campbell is in the news again, in a bad way. A new video has surfaced showing her in aÂ form that I’m sure she would not want the world to see. I peeped the video and I have to say how saddened I was to see this. Especially the ending, when a dude (her pimp perhaps?) gets in the car and nudges her and she says to someone outside the car, “I’ma get beat up, but you alright.” Wow. Is this what her life has come to? The sad part of all this is the fact that is clearly her reality. Some say she’s bi-polar, some say she’s plain crazy, others say she’s on drugs. I say go help her. Can’t someone, anyone go and take her away and help her? Then again, does she even want the help? Sigh.
Interestingly enough, Her mother, the late author Bebe Moore Campbell wrote a book called 72 Hour Hold that tells the â€˜fictionalâ€™ story of a mother dealing with a daughter who is bipolar and refuses treatment.
