BOSSIP: Watching the teaser, we noticed that a lot of the promotion focuses on alcoholism. Since the public perception has always been that there was substance abuse, or some type of drug abuse, was alcoholism the worst of your substance abuse?
JoJo: No No No. Stop right there, I don’t want to cut you off, but I have to stop you right there. There was never no drugs, okay? Ok, whatever you want to call it, marijuana yeah okay, but other than that drugs like cocaine and all that, no that never came to into play. Alcohol was my choice of drug, because that’s a powerful drug too, so we’re just going to focus on that and let people know, we are not the only ones. If you were to dissect the whole industry you’d be surprised.

TV One Producer: When you watch the program you will see that part of the treatment is a medical treatment that is supervised by doctors.
Bossip: That’s what we wondered when we saw the promo video. What kind of medical treatment was JoJo getting done in that?
Damon (K-Ci and Jojo’s manager): Accelerated detox. To answer your other question, that’s why we wanted to be so open, to show people what they came up positive for and what they came up negative for. In order to do the treatment, they had to know what was being taken so they had to be tested. All that will come out on the show.
Because you’re skinny or looking a certain way, people definitely assume you’re doing something, so we definitely wanted to set that straight on the show. We definitely addressed it and let people see what it was. They wouldn’t have been eligible if it was something other than that.
K-Ci: In the black community, if you’re skinny, they automatically say you’re doing something. If you look back I’ve always been skinny. But for some reason when I get on that stage I think I’m something. I know I don’t have no muscles.
