Dawn and Reese Spencer just can't get ahead. Between her desperate desire to start a family and his gambling debts, they barely keep afloat, even with well-paying Norfolk International port jobs. But their calculating co-worker has the perfect plan: help him smuggle containers of precious, illegal - human - cargo past US Customs. Reese persuades Dawn that no one will get hurt. Then several immigrants turn up dead on arrival. Now the Feds and cold-blooded loan sharks are closing in, as the real brains behind the operation start killing off loose ends.

Bobby Brown has been one of the most compelling American artists of the past 30 years, a magnetic and talented figure who successfully crossed over many musical genres, including R&B and hip-hop as well as the mainstream. In the late 1980s, the former front man of New Edition had a wildly successful solo career - especially with the launch of Don't Be Cruel - garnering multiple hits on the Billboard top 10 list as well as several Grammy, American Music, and Soul Train awards.

I have always been a Bobby Brown fan. I grew up listening to New Edition. I loved the fact that he was so open and honest about his struggles, his fears, his setbacks. I have a newfound respect for him as a person and a father. Continued success to you Mr. Brown!

No matter the effort that Bromise Balducci put forth early on to undermine his passion to kill, he d fall weak to the seducer of power over again. Initially, it was only his mentor and grandpa, Brisco, that basked in the joy of Bromises frequent killing sprees. Then something changed. He began to feel the urge to kill.... to feel his adrenaline rush through his bloodstream as his pulse beat in sync with the rapid blasts of his banger. With each job, he became more addicted to the power of controlling life or death.

What does crazy look like? Let Deborah tell it: It's the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children, and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live. But working full-time and being a full-time mother, full-time wife, and full-time Sunday-only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her.

Lauren Robinson knows exactly what it takes to be the perfect mistress. She had a front-row seat when she tagged along with her father on all of his extramarital trysts. She loved keeping Daddy's special secrets, but many family members, especially her mother, consider her an accomplice in helping break up their family. This emotional distance and Lauren's early dating experiences lead her to date married men.

Keyshawn Watson and T. A. Smith were living life on a rail of razor blades. With targets on their backs from gangsters in the gritty streets of Milwaukee to crafty personnel at the FBI, demise or a lifetime in federal prison seemed to be the only conceivable outcome. However, the assistance of Li Chan, an agent with the bureau gone bad, granted them the advantage needed to level the playing field. All appears to be well until a series of brutal murders aggravates some of the city's top officials.

Out of all the divas at New Day Temple of Faith, Unique has to be the most colorful one - she and her mother, Lorain, that is. Never one to hold her tongue in the name of keepin' it real, it's no surprise that Unique has not been saved all her life. It's safe to say that Lorain wasn't born on the church pew either. Let the church folk tell it, the apple hasn't fallen too far from the tree when it comes to Unique.
