The introduction to the pimp game came at a crucial time in the life of ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ star Momma Dee.
The former madam, who still makes threats of putting bitches back on the track when pressed to the outer levels of annoyance (if you’re an avid shopper at Walmart you know the feeling), says she became a full fledged female mack while recovering from a head-on car collision because it was the best alternative to provide for her family.
“What people don’t understand is that I have a degree in nursing and then a 16-year-old hit me head on. And he was drunk. And it took me three years to learn how to walk again. Within those three years, no one in my family came to boil a pot of water or do anything for me and my kids,” she recalled during a recent appearance on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
“I couldn’t work because every five years I would have to get a new hip. And when you have those types of surgeries, it takes your four or five months to even walk again. And it was hard. And I had to get on food stamps and welfare, you know. So there was no one to get school clothes and put toys under the tree. Who was going to do that? And I’m not a beggar. So I got it myself. And it wasn’t by force — it was by choice.”
