Girls from around the way think they've seen it all and know it all. What they don't know will surprise them and change their lives forever. Take a look at the lives of some street-smart women who'll learn what living the fast-paced life can mean in the end if you're not careful.What if you were raised to be a hooker and, worst of all, your father was your pimp? In "Keepin' It in the Family," this isn't just a nightmare for the Collins daughters, this is reality. Raised without the guidance of their mother, Diamond, Essence, and Chanel were forced onto the streets at a very young age. They were expected to make that money by any means necessary or face the wrath of their daddy, Dallas Collins. Can the girls band together to free themselves from Dallas?In "Pound Cake," we bring you to Coney Island, where four friends deal with daily life in one of the deadliest parts of the borough. Pound Cake, a beautiful yet fiery nineteen-year-old, is the leader of the pack. People in the streets know not to mess with Pound Cake or her home-girls. So when a local hustler named Winter impregnates and then abuses Minnie, the youngest in the group, Pound Cake won't stand for it. She is going to find a way to make him pay."So Seductive" introduces you to the world of Cinnamon and Simone. Best friends since childhood, they are every man's fantasy, and they know it. They love to play with men and get whatever they want from them. But when one of their night's escapades turns violent, will the girls change, or will they fall prey to the unforgiving Brooklyn streets?

Cheyenne and Kelsi grew up together in the hood. They' re best friends who' ve always had each other' s backs-- until Cheyenne' s father is released from prison and Kelsi can' t resist his advances. Their scandalous affair might do more than just tear apart a friendship;it could destroy Cheyenne' s whole world. Angela Farmer' s early childhood was filled with neglect and abuse at the hands of her drug-addicted mother. Not even the love and support of her foster parents could totally erase her painful memories. In an effort to rid herself of her demons, Angela makes it her mission to protect others, but her methods strike fear in the hearts of the people around her. Eva is a good, churchgoing girl who seems to have the perfect life, until she' s wrongly accused of embezzling from her clients. Caught up in a struggle to prove her innocence, she is forced to face the grittier side of life. She enters into a sexually charged world fueled by power, murder, and greed, where she must adapt if she' s going to survive.
