"This is a reality of loving and living with someone who is walking a road of recovery in the real world, too. I am the child of a formerly addicted parent, and I know how that the road is not always straight and narrow. Addiction is a hell of a disease that can affect individuals and their families emotionally, physically, and mentally for years after the substance is nixed. There is a lot of trust to rebuild. The fear of relapse can haunt loved ones.  But for all of the turmoil that loved ones experience, the toughest daily battles remain with the person in recovery. Being misunderstood by family and friends can be one of the biggest challenges. Now that they’re back together, Ralph Angel thinks that Darla should be able to leave her recovery program and get back to a normal life. He doesn’t understand why meetings are still important to her, or why she wants to take their relationship slow with less than two years of recovery under her belt. And he probably never will.
All of these moving pieces lend themselves to an extremely sensitive representation of addiction that doesn’t harp on the sensationalized experiences of people under the influence, but a bigger picture of a human being with a problem that touches every aspect of her life. It hits very close to home and exemplifies the beauty of Queen Sugar." Thank you @refinery29 for this incredibly beautiful and sensitive write up ❀️.

Thank you to all the people that came out and showed #queensugar so much love. And an extra special thank you to everyone that told me about the Darla's in their lives. Touched me so deeply and reminded me why it's such a gift to be an artist. #ArtCanHeal #essencefest2017

This was the night of my 9th grade father/daughter dance , where @mrrichardlawson and I won first place cuz we were πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯!!!! Someone recently asked me what my happiest memory was. What came to me in that moment was being 12 in Harlem, where my father had just relocated to from LA. He took me to FAO Schwarz and said that I could pic one thing. So I chose the largest lego battleship in the store. It was huuuuuuge- took up the entire dining room table. Everyday after work, he and I would assemble this battle ship together. It took us my entire vacation but we finished it. Simple.. a table, two chairs, legos and my dad. My happiest memory:) Happy Father's Day pop! I love you. You're the sun and the moon and the stars to me. We've gone through many battles together ❀❀❀❀❀ #Bosses 😎

So incredibly PROUD of my best friend of 18 years Ness Bautista who is currently starring in @sense8 now streaming on @netflix as well as the upcoming @daytimedivas and just finished great work on @abcthecatch all while graduating summa cum laude in business and public policy with a minor in communications AND writing the upcoming film #Anchorage, an autobiographical story about his childhood growing up in the only Dominican/Puerto Rican family in Anchorage Alaska in the 80's. It's going to be πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯. Hilarious and desperately heartbreaking. But most importantly, he's one of the THE most solid humans I've ever known. The most, loyal, consistent, dependable friend ever and a true gentleman.
