Niatia “Lil Mama” Kirkland goes from 0 to 100 real quick.
Starring in original TV One movie “When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story” before a private screening in New Orleans on August 11 she spoke about the film. While speaking at the podium she was interrupted by chatter from a few members in the audience.
“I’m sorry, did you want to say something because I’ll let you finish and then I’ll finish when you done,” Lil Mama called out group in the middle of talking about the film.
While the rest of the group laughed Lil Mama cleared the air.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t like to be rude so when people want to speak I like to let them finish first,” she said.
Lil Mama stars as Falicia Blakely in a film about a 16-year-old exotic dancer who ends up serving a life sentence in prison after being in an abusive relationship with a pimp 11-years older than her.
“I know that God gives all of us assignments and sometimes we don’t understand how important it is until it’s finished,” Lil Mama said. “Today we glorify strippers…we look at it as a come up…this is showing you the other side because it’s based on a true story.
“When you watch this movie you are looking at truth.”
This film was directed by actress Tasha Smith and stars Lance Gross (House of Payne), Tami Roman (Basketball Wives) and five-division world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather.
This TV movie premieres on TV One Monday, August 28.
