For those who may not remember actress Maia Campbell, she was prominently featured on the sitcom In the House, starring LL Cool J. And believe you me, Mo’Kelly had a SERIOUS crush on Campbell. We shared the same birthday, hung out at the same clubs (even the lesbian ones…yes Mo’Kelly has some good stories to share one day about Club Peanuts [aka "Club 7969"], stories which include Maia, Queen Latifah and others. It’s not slander when it’s true. FIRSThand accounts.
For those unfamiliar with the Los Angeles club scene, “Peanuts” was a LEGENDARY women-only club. Mo’Kelly was allowed in because he worked in the music industry and delivered wax for the DJs and did promotional giveaways there. On another side note, the worst fistfights Mo’Kelly ever witnessed were in this club. Them women didn’t play!)
But Mo’Kelly digresses.
As they say, be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. Once upon a time, Mo’Kelly would have given his left…uh…um…”arm” to get with Maia Campbell.
Luckily, somebody above knew better and kept Mo’Kelly safe from himself. Ladies and gentlemen, Maia, who has disappeared and reappeared depending on whether she was in jail, rehab, (allegedly) on the stroll or some sordid combination of all three has re-emerged. Well sorta…she was arrested on July 5th and has remained in jail/rehab unable to meet bail. Reportedly her next court date is tomorrow Wednesday.
Sad tale and it will only have one ending as nobody has successfully intervened. Maia Campbell…a NOT crack-free zone.
