The Jasmine Brand reported last December that the “V.S.O.P.” singer was working on a new reality series that will focus on women having silicone removed from their bodies, similar to her own experience. The site now reports BET has bought the series and will be bringing the Tennessee native’s vision to fans everywhere. She’s also teamed up with Jesse Collins to produce the series. John Collins Entertainment credits include The New Edition Story, The Bobby Brown Story, Real Husbands of Hollywood, Amanda Seales: I Be Knowin’, The BET Awards and more.
“No one knows why this girl can’t walk and why her immune system is weak,” K. Michelle said. “We did an MRI and saw that my whole buttocks area and hips were black. All you saw was darkness from the top of the butt to the side, and it was from the silicone injections.”
Last year, the “Hard to Do” songstress had her injections removed, which led to a host of other complications, including emergency blood transfusions. She did it with the hope of bettering her health and the possibility of having more children.
“I did not know how difficult this journey was going to be. I would give anything to go back to Kimberly.”
