For me, this week’s episode of OWN’s Breaking Down the Bars began with an “OH Tiffany!”. Before I could even settle in, Tiffany was being hauled off into maximum security lock down for allegedly refusing to go to work on her day off. Not even 2 minutes into the show. Scheduled to be released in about 3 days…what was she thin [...]
This week’s episode of OWN’s Breaking Down the Bars pulled down the bars of shame for several inmates. Hope can be the catalyst for change and hopefully some of the girls got a little bit of it this week. The show started off with Hannah as her parents, Shawn and Sarah, arrived at the jail this week for some family counseling [...]
Breaking Down the Bars….literally this week on OWN. While a couple of inmates worked on crushing their own emotional demons, another stepped outside the unlocked gates. Lots of positive energy filled the episode as a few of the women found a way to breathe a little easier.
This week’s show opened the gates for Nicole as she was r [...]
Although Nicole started the show on a high note this episode, she landed flat. Yeah her! She was reassigned to a work release program after 3 long years behind the gates.

To her, mail was the lifeline to her mother’s support which she feels she needs for recovery. Dr. Covington had her firs [...]
A couple of new, complex women were introduced on a deeper level this week. The first to open up is Tiffany who was sentenced to 20 years for robbery and criminal confinement. When you hear that it just sounds cold and hard, but her story helps me understand more clearly how she got to that point. Her mother was a dancer and her father w [...]
When I first saw the previews to this show, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t want to follow a reality show based on the daily lives of convicts, nor did I want to be a part of something that sensationalized criminals. It didn’t seem promising. I mean…how much can a show do that shoots from Rockville Correctio [...]
LOVE the song…and LOVE LOVE LOVE Seal!
