Christine Beatty was former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s secret lover. She moved to Atlanta to escape the spotlight after their affair was made public, but she’s back in Detroit with a new reality TV show and talk radio show on AM 910.
In an interview with Local 4 Defender Kevin Dietz, Beatty said her show will focus on redemption and how to move forward and reclaim what you’ve lost in your life.
Kilpatrick is serving a 28-year prison sentence for racketeering. Beatty, an unnamed co-conspirator, cooperated with the investigation and wasn’t charged.
“I really don’t want to answer any more questions about Kwame. I mean, of course I hope and pray he gets a new trial and released,” Beatty said. “I’m focusing on the mistakes I made and own and moving forward.”
Beatty’s radio show airs each Saturday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Her TV show, “From the Bottom Up,” airs on BET.
