Despite becoming a reality TV star, life after The Way It Is and Frankie and Neffe hasn’t exactly been grand for Keyshia Cole’s biological mother, Frankie Lons. Lons was rumored to be back on the losing end of her longtime battle with a drug and alcohol addiction. She confirmed such speculation with an appearance on Celebrity Rehab. Unfortunately, that stint proved itself to be futile after she was reportedly arrested for possessing drug-related material in April. Cole herself acknowledged the reports via Twitter.
These days, though, Keyshia says Frankie is exhibiting much better behavior than she has in recent months. The R&B star tweeted: “4 those who CARE. My mother Frankie's much better. More mature, Not cursing around DJ,N she weighs more than me. Think she doing sumthin. LoL” Frankie appears to have moved past some of the issues with Cole’s adopted mother that we saw play out on the popular BET reality series. Keyshia added, “I love her like this. She's such a wonderful, funny, loving, caring grandmother. She's getting along with my mom, Yvonne. Like living a dream.”
