Tasha Smith Opens Up About Stripping

The thing I love most about my fellow Jersey girl, Tasha Smith, is how real she is.

While promoting her directorial debut, “When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story,” on “The Breakfast Club,” Tasha opened up about her days as a stripper and how she got out of the business before it consumed her.

There are some women who could probably handle that lifestyle and not get caught up.

You look at Amber Rose, you look at Blac Chyna…they did pretty well for themselves, right?

Every woman I feel can’t go in that world and really mentally handle it. Hey, I used to be a stripper, okay?! So, I understand.

I was just surviving, but I got out of the club!

I know my path could’ve been different. Like I ended up here.

Falicia Blakely ended up serving life in jail!
