“Black Mafia Family Wives” may be coming to a television screen near you, featuring the wives of the infamous Black Mafia Family (aka BMF), which at its height operated a multi-million dollar national drug ring based out of Atlanta.
BMF co-founder Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory is currently serving a 30 year sentence for allegedly trafficking 2,500 kilograms of cocaine a month. It is reported the operation made up to $270 million dollars. Big Meech’s brother Terry ran the organization’s West Coast operation and is serving a 30 year prison sentence as well.
Gricelda Chavez, Lisa Buford, Tiffany Gloster, and Tonesa Welch are shooting a pilot with Strange Fruit Media and according to Ozone Magazine, they are hoping to land a TV deal.
Here’s the breakdown of the cast:
- Terry’s wife Tonesa Welch, who calls herself the “First Lady of BMF,” appears to be the Shaunie O’Neal of this whole venture and hopes to help tell Terry’s side of the BMF story.
- Gricelda Chavez, who was involved with music producer Damon Thomas (incidentally, although not as famous as Kris Humphries, he is also a Kim Kardashian divorcee). Damon was a player in a BMF money-laundering scheme involving jewelry purchases and, when confronted with the evidence, agreed to cooperate with the government as a witness against Terry.
- Lisa Buford’s man “PJ” was a high-ranking BMF affiliate on Terry’s side of the organization.
- Tiffany Gloster and her man Jerry “J Rock” Davis were both indicted by the DEA on BMF-related charges in 2007. Tiffany served a two year sentence for her part in helping to launder the proceeds from J Rock’s cocaine sales. J Rock is currently serving a sentence of 39 years and 10 months in prison.
