Photography by Seven caught up with actress Maia Campbell and she appeared to be pretty excited about having a new jar of some of that good ‘ol Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding.
Back in September, 2009 Maia Campbell was ridiculed when a youtube video where she appeared to be high off of drugs circulated throughout the net. Many fans were disturbed and also concerned about Maia’s behavior and quickly asked for everyone to pray for the fallen star.
Shortly after, a friend of Maia’s mother, Bebe Moore Campbell, issued the following statement: “Maia is in treatment, and there is hope for Maia’s recovery, but the prayers of “50,000,000″ people can make the difference. Maia doesn’t like to stay in treatment, and her treatment involves drug withdrawal as well as treatment for her disorders. Maia’s disorders are exasperated and sent out of control by substance abuse. Pre-existing and early onset bi-polar, clinical depression and schizophrenia can be sent out of control by marijuana (the worst culprit), alcohol and of course, synthetic and street drugs. Maintain your hope for Maia’s recovery.” Nancy said, “She can use her beauty, talent, and celebrity for the good of others.”
“Maia was looking good and very happy and upbeat. There was no sign of her being high, and she was carrying a bag of Miss Jessie’s hair care products. She looked to be fully on the road to recovery with the drug abuse as a thing of the past. Normally, she is unwilling to take pictures, but she was more than cooperative and happy to do so this time around,” says the photographer who also added: “She smelled good.”
Wouldn’t it be something if Miss Jessie’s brought Maia on as the new spokesperson for the brand? Sales would probably skyrocket.
