She's biggie Small's widow and sh was a certified gold r&b singer in the 1990's. Made a song with Whitney Houston. Puffy cheated her on her label contract and she's an excellent song writer. Been on the cover of Vibe and The Source magazine. She also had someone portray her in the movie Notorious. Which makes her the first lady of Bad Boy Records.

Widow, singer wanna be, songwriter??, bad boy first lady? This is how I see it. An immature 37 years old mother getting a DUI. I don't care who she is, she's out there risking people's lives. Sadly enough, given the labels mentioned above, she'll be given a slap on the wrist. I truly hope that one day, the judicial system makes it a mandatory 1 year sentence for all DUI arrests for first time offenders.

Faith your not the only one who has gone through such.
What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.
Sometimes we all need to learn from each others mistakes, but instead criticism and ridicule takes us over.
To bombard and scrutinize someone whose ill mistake lands them in jail becomes an all out frenzy.
Girl your in our prayers and if you feel you need to get away from it all.... meet us in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

Im glad SHE and others like her get caught. My daughter lives near Marina Del Rey and I want the streets safe. How selfish and stupid and DANGEROUS to drive drunk. There ARE other alternatives, you know!!

I'm rooting for Faith as an artist(I think she's in the middle of a comeback) but can't stand drunk drivers. It may seem that "everyone does it" but some people also die with them on the road.

True Love is what I'll always have for the Queen, Faith Evans. She made a mistake and did'nt hurt anyone but herself. To Hell with the HATERS cause she does'nt need your broke azzes anyway! Can't wait on the new album.
