EXCLUSIVE: Holly Robinson-Peete Encourages Black Families to Face Mental Health Head-On

 For a third season, and for lack of a better term, we became free agents.

It doesn’t happen too often in this genre, where you have a show that another network loves enough to say, ‘We believe in this and want to keep it going.’ We rebranded a bit with the new name, but it’s the same family in a new home.

We recently saw Rihanna and your son RJ connecting after she discovered he’s a huge fan of her’s. How was that moment like for him, and for you as a parent?

You know, whenever someone is good to your child, they’re good for life! He is arguably her biggest fan and is mildly obsessed with her. He’s a young boy on the autism spectrum, so he can get fixated on things. I was able, through some mutual friends within Roc Nation, to have them meet!
