*YBF EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW*: Shante Broadus Opens Up About Daughter Cori's Lupus & Their Reunited Family

TheYBF.com had the intimate opportunity to sit down with Shante Broadus, the wife of Snoop Dogg and mother to their three children.  Having recently made the public aware of their 10-year-old daughter Cori's battle with Lupus, Shante sat down with YBF's Los Angeles correspondent Victoria Audele about Cori's struggles and journey helping her and Snoop repair their marriage.

 

Part 1 of our interview with Shante, which is sure to serve as an amazing example to other families, when you read on...

 

Shante first noticed something was wrong with her daughter, Cori, when a skin irritation appeared on her face at a pool outing. Over a short period of time Cori started showing more symptoms like excessive weight loss and shedding of her hair, all at the age of six. She took her to the doctor and, after blood was drawn, Lupus was determined to be the disease causing all of Cori's symptoms.

Shante's struggle to keep her strength and faith together for the family became a journey unlike any other in her lifetime. The problems in her marriage with Snoop Dogg were resolved, and the couple ended their road to a divorce.   Here's our video interview with Shante where she discusses more in depth about how Cori's journey glued the family back together again.

Also check out Shante and Snoop at the 10th Annual Lupus Ball this past May.

AWWW So sweet! He really is in love and happy cuz everytime anybody mention AK he be showin all his teeth (like 50 said). The relationship is official, he is talking about his present & future so he is free to express his feelings when asked a question. If you don't hear it now u gon hear it later. Unlike Mashonda, he moved on, doesn't harp on past issues and doesn't discuss his EX'S business (or even mentions her name). Why should he, its old news. OTTNO!! Positivity 2010!!

She always talked slow like that. She was like that on their show. I think her, Tiny, Beyonce, Jada, Pauletta Washigton hold it down with their men. Cori is a sweetheart and I have thought about her paternity too but thats not my business soooo..... Anyway, Snoop and Shante keep it real at all times. And I wish them blessing and peace. I hope she tries natural herbs instead of alot of medications. Isn't Dr. Sebe in LA? Maybe they should holler at him. he is saiad to have cured alot of illnesses like this with natural herbs. Stay strong little Cori!!!

Instead of focusing on the

Instead of focusing on the fact that her child has lupus, you are more focused on how she speaks which is ridiculous. You can't say that she doesn't know how to express herself but from her body language you can tell she hasn't been getting a lot of sleep, and is very distressed. I'm sure that many of you would feel that way if that happened to your child and not knowing what's to happen. I applaud Shante for having the courage to talk about how her daugher is battling lupus because it must be very difficult to do so. I pray that somehow their daughter will make it through and to keep strong and that the family can keep strong as well.

She is probably exhausted as hell, worrying for her babygirl, especially what kind of life she will have as she gets older. No matter how strong she is, she still has in her mind that she can one day lose her daughter to Lupus. Last year, I was diagnosed with Lupus while I was pregnant with my son and let me tell you it was not an easy pregnancy. I refused to take meds at the time because I was carrying him and now I am on 7 different medications. Thank God, he did not develop neonatal lupus after being born, although he born 2 weeks early and was in the NICU for five days due to respiratory issues. He is very healthy now and I am extremely grateful to have him as well as my other children. Lupus does not have to be a death sentence, but I worry that one day I may not be here to see my seeds grow into healthy, productive adults. I completely understand how Shante feels.
Anonymous's picture

All I can tell her is to stay

All I can tell her is to stay strong love her daughter and cherish each moment. They have come such a long way with Lupus and there are better medications out there now more than before. My mom died from Lupus at a very young age and back then nobody really knew what it was and how to treat it, so she went through so many experimental drugs but, to see such a youngh child with this is rare. I pray much blessing upon her and her family. I hope one day they will find a cure for this dreadful dease. With his stripes we are healed and God is able to do all things if you just believe and stay prayerful, he will work it out in your favor.

I also want to say that it is a great thing that they caught Cori's Lupus at the age they did, people can go years without a proper diagnosis. I have had signs of the disease since I was very young and they went under the radar, so to speak.

I'm glad Shante and Snoop are using their celebrity to spread the word on what many families (black families) with Lupus deal with.. I can only imagine how devastating it must be to find something like that out b/c the battle is daily and constant.. never ending... but God know's what He's doing and thank God for His abundant love...

It seems like Shante is high,

It seems like Shante is high, or maybe just like another poster said exhausted. While I wish this family the best, I doubt reconciling is difficult when your husband is an unrepentant whore -I'm not impressed. Open marriages are an oxymoron, where the very thing that gave the institution of marriage value, everything that is worth reverencing has been compromised, sometimes the couples are classy, polished, refined and well-spoken, like Will & Jada or ghetto fab like snoop and shante - it's still like trying to spitshine shit.

Yeah, because you sure as hell didn't!! I guess you are not only sleeping with Snoop but are also a doctor who specializes in Lupus! GTFOH!! How can you be so callous as to say Shante is going to loser her daughter to this illness? Lots of people are LIVING with Lupus and not DYING from it. This story is to bring awareness to the disease and the commitment she & Snoop have made to their family. Some people are so hateful!
SoWhat's picture

My thoughts exactly! Lupus

My thoughts exactly! Lupus is not a death sentence people.....you can live with it as long as you take the necessary precautions and take care of yourself as your physician instructs you. Snoop and Shante decided to continue being a family so , #1 - because they love each other & #2 - why make this childs life MORE difficult with having to deal the results of divorced parents when she already has enough to deal with?!. All i'm saying is sometimes you have to put the dumb-ish aside in order to do what's right for the children.

Wow!! I know as a mother, you wish that you could bare the burdens for your child. I think that is what she wanted to say, but, doesn't have the intellect to describe it. There is nothing attractive about a woman who doesn't know how to properly express herself or speak well. I just do not understand why the women of these rap artists do not take some of the money to educate themselves. Even if they do not go to college (because school isn't for everyone), at least go to a few seminars to learn a few tips on how to grow your man's money while/after the rap game. At the least, a class on mastering interviews. This interview did nothing for the plight of her daughter's lupus or the awareness of it. That is what is sad.
